    I think running and cycling are the 2 sports that if you are already fat probably will not make you thin. You see lots of runners and cyclists with flabby looking bodies that never progress and look...

    This is the kind of thing where if you measure and track calories for a couple of days, you might find you are eating a TON of calories that prevent you from losing weight. How many eggs? How much...

    I think it is a matter of different strokes for different folks. :) You could most certainly get hurt doing it. And you can also modify the hell out of it and make it safe. It seems like working out...

    Crossfit is pretty interesting. The fun part is that the WOD's are so varied- one day they favor the strong, one day the fastest etc. It's cool when all the elements come together and it's a WOD you...

    I don't get the flu vaccine, it seems very hit or miss. I do get tetanus shots because I live in fear of lock jaw.
    If I had kids I'd get them vaccines, I vaccinate my pets too. I know people who...

    Cardio helps with strength training. I have NOT been as on top of my cardio and big lifts for reps have been a challenge. My cardio gives out before my strength does. :(

    That sounds like you eat a good amount of carbs too, relative to "low carb", and relatively less fat.
    I agree that protein is a biggie.

    First off, Vegan diets CAN make you fat. As can eating copious amounts of healthy fats.
    If I were you, I'd up my carbs to 100 grams a day, reduce fats, keep protein high. Then on top of my 100 grams...

    Not that mini bagels are a good substitute, but almond flour treats are pretty much calorie bombs. I watch calories now... and work a lot with either coconut flour or oats.

    Most of us have, understand it, and have done it long enough to know it simply doesn't work well for everyone, for every situation. We could preach it to Nellodee, but she ain't gonna eat meat. But...

    I like the Wendler 5-3-1 program, mainly because I can't do cleans from Starting Strength LOL. No coordination.
