Re: Vegetarian lunch ideas?

I recommend a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. I go through 10-15 bananas, lots of dates, and some other stuff + a salad when I'm not being lazy. Throw some nuts in there too. It's been working well...

Re: Protein consumption

Like I said, the actual successful athletes, especially for strength training, is largely calorie based. Meat is usually fairly calorie dense compared to other sources anyways, so getting 300g of...

Re: Protein consumption

Yesh, this argument has been repeating itself for way too long.

To say that lots of strength athletes eat high protein so it must be working is flawed. This would only be a correlation, and doesn't...

Re: Carbohydrate powders

I agree with the bananas. Theyre probably cheaper too! Definitely better for you.

Re: Microwave: Good or bad?

I was never a big fan of the taste from microwaves.. it always ruined pizza, and made meat really rubbery :/ I suggest a toaster oven for re-heating (best invention ever), and a crock pot for low...

Re: fruit. can you eat too much??

Re: fruit. can you eat too much??

I would love to see a scientific paper that proves that. Fruit is the anti alcohol. It adds nutrition into our body, not takes it away. Alcohol is basically poison to our bodies.

Re: Completely getting rid of fruit?

There's no reason to get rid of raw fruit, bananas or otherwise. Bananas alone are one of the easiest foods on your digestive system as well as packed full of nutrition. The GI system is an...
