Re: Intermittent Fasting...

I would experiment with different durations to see what works best for you in terms of schedule and results. I started with 18 hr fasts several times weekly and did ok with that. Then I tried a 24...

Re: Liquid Fish oil

I'll second Carlson's lemon flavor. No fishy smell or taste. I think they have other flavors so you could experiment if flavor is an issue. Lemon should hide well in smoothies etc.

Re: Moving from cold and dry to hot and humid

When I lived in hot and humid Texas people told me that at first you sweat more than usual , but still lose lots of electrolytes in the sweat. Then your body adjusts and puts out a more dilute sweat...

Re: Arms too long for effective snatch grip?

I feel your pain. I am a shade over 6'2" with a 78-79" reach. I am still a rookie at all of this, but progressing slowly. I did shoulder dislocates daily and marked the PVC with tape so I could...

Re: Anyone have bathroom issues with ZMA?

Two things that can cause constipation and are in many multivitamins are iron and calcium. I would suspect the iron if the Centrum has it. Look for a multi without iron is this is the case. Most...

Re: Foam roller: How often?

This doesn't directly answer your question, but here is a link someone posted here awhile back. It is a You Tube video from Eric Cressey showing a brief routine using foam roller and a tennis ball...

Re: Cholesterol going up on Paleo/Zone/Eggs

Just a few additional points to consider. First off, her HDL might be higher now that she is exercising. That would be a good rise in her total cholesterol number. I realize her LDL is up a bit,...

Re: Avocado Substitute

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but I would suggest trying another grocery store if you have more than one option. Where I live the high end grocery consistently has bad avocados with...

Re: What kind of cereal do you eat...

While I am certainly not a nutrition expert, I seem to remember that oats are particularly high in phytic acid or phytates, which hinder absorption of many nutrients in the oats. Soaking allows for...

Re: Farm Fresh, Cage-free eggs

Jenna, don't give up too easily. Just remember these are usually family run farms where they work long and hard hours. Since they don't have a web site I am guessing they are more focused on...

Re: Farm Fresh, Cage-free eggs

Jenna,

Take a look at eatwild.com (w/f/s). It is a site where you can search for healthy local meat, dairy, etc. options. In particular look at Moose Hill Farms as they have free-range eggs and...

Re: oatmeal

I like to throw a few frozen blueberries into my steel cut oatmeal. The berries quickly thaw and help cool the oatmeal. Not as sweet as adding sugar, but certainly another good option to consider...

Re: Grass Fed Meats

You can also take a look at the Eat Wild site (w/f/s). It lists farms and describes the products they offer. There is even a map now to help you locate the closest sources. You do need to ask...

Re: Wild Fermentation-This is a great book

Re: Television...Heave Ho, or Heck No!???

Craig, no need to worry. I think the reference is to my original post where I said that much of my tv watching was a waste of MY time. That just means I often use tv to fight boredom and end up...

Re: Anyone from Swede here?

Television...Heave Ho, or Heck No!???

Hi All,

Over in Nutrition a side topic came up concerning several people who live without any (or much) tv. While I am one who has often thought about getting rid of cable, I also have so far...

Re: Arguing that XFit is 'enough' cardio

Karin,

If you are serious about wanting to try fish oil but afraid of the mercury, you might want to consider krill oil. Since krill are so small and way up the food chain they are much "cleaner"...

Re: Coconut Oil Suggestions

I like to add a tablespoon full (as a liquid) to frozen or slightly thawed berries. I also add a few walnuts and a spoonful of plain yogurt (obviously optional). The coconut oil will harden to a...

Re: Anybody know of feed stores in/near Austin,TX?

Hi Nia,

I think prices generally run $40-45 or so per mat. Let me know what you find. Also, the mats are a tad heavy, but mostly just unwieldy for one person to carry, so it wouldn't hurt to have...

Re: Anybody know of feed stores in/near Austin,TX?

I no longer live in Austin, but I did a quick check on the Tractor Supply web site and they list a store off of Hwy 183 in Cedar Park. That should be close enough for you to easily get too. Look...
