Re: Roadtrip Food for new Paleo Person?

It might not be what you want to hear, but I suggest just not worrying about it all that much. Use the opportunity to learn what the best options are for you. The reality is you can't bring your own...

Re: Pictures of Non-Garage/Non-Basement Home Gyms

Steve, you seem pretty knowledgeable. However, I'm looking at setting up a space INSIDE a home, rather than in a garage. Do you have any similar pointers for such a set-up indoors? My main concerns...

Re: CrossFitting for 10 months - slow weight loss

Throw out your scale (or at least hide it). Clean up your diet. The small things matter, especially as one gets older. Go to the gym as often as you can, and then go once more per week. Finally,...

Pictures of Non-Garage/Non-Basement Home Gyms

I'm looking at moving to an areas that does not have an abundance of garages or basements, but I'd like to find a place that would allow me to set up a home gym. It's likely that I'll end up paying a...

Re: empty a.m. stomach or pre-workout protein blend

1) Yeah, if you want to hit metcons harder, the protein may not do much for you. You'd be better off with some carbs. I take a really long time to digest, so I really only notice a bump in...

Re: Intermittent Fasting & Pre/Post Workout Nutrition

Just a quick update. I feel more "fasted" when I don't do the BP coffee. Also, I feel as though I've adjusted somewhat to those six hours before breaking the fast. It doesn't seem as bad as before. ...

Re: Started crossfit and paleo today. How's my diet

Might not be the answer you're looking for, but I'd suggest not worrying about it all that much. Get that 1g of protein per lb of lean muscle mass, then adjust the fats and carbs by how you feel. If...

Re: Intermittent Fasting & Pre/Post Workout Nutrition

After a week of doing one BP coffee after training during my fasting period, I gotta say that I think it's breaking my fast. Progress ground to a halt this week. I won't close the book on it down the...

Re: Coming Back from a Bad Weekend of Eating

Yeah, not much to do. only thing I tend to change is I force myself to drink more water than usual to flush stuff out of my system.

Re: Intermittent Fasting & Pre/Post Workout Nutrition

I've been doing 10g of BCAA, mixed all at once into 28oz of water. I drink that before, during, and after the workout.

On BCAAs, has anybody had any issues with upset stomach after drinking them?...

Re: Against the Current

Hey buddy; I'm on this right now. First things first, weigh and log your food. It's shocking how hard it is to get 2,000 calories on a diet like this. It should work itself out to somewhere between...

Re: Intermittent Fasting & Pre/Post Workout Nutrition

Phil, I'm a huge fan of BP coffee. I drink it every day as a matter of getting in the appropriate amount of fat calories (and for the taste, of course). However, if I provide my body with readily...

Yup, I haven't noticed any detriment from cutting anything from immediate post-workout, and I've got BCAAs on the way.

Re: Binge Eating

When I'm eating Paleo-ish, I'll do a cheat meal once every two weeks. Right now with meat and veg, I do a cheat day once a week. The reason for this is because I'm, for the most part, happy and...

Re: Binge Eating

Another thing you might try is planning out your cheat day in torturous detail. I have a specific date, and I know EXACTLY what I'm going to eat. For me, knowing what's in store usually keeps me on...

Yeah, no kidding, buddy; where's your food?! My guess is it's going to take some time for your body to adjust to the change. However, I don't see any solid protein in your log, and barely any fat. If...

Re: Paleo Help

I'm going to agree; you're way under fed. If you've been eating like this for a while, I would think you might have some stubborn metabolic issues. I'm going to also take a guess that you're not...

I was 240 and 5'8". I know where you're at, and it's even worse for us short guys. I got down to 170, then gained back 20 in law school. Now I'm trying to drop again.
