    Shop Rite sometimes carries a line of beef called "Nature's Reserve" that is grassfed from Australia. About once every 4-6 weeks, they'll sell the whole beef tenderloin for somewhere in the...

    I would never buy farm-raised Atlantic salmon. It's pretty much the junkiest meat you can get and it's expensive, too. Consider you can get pretty much any cut of chicken, pork or beef for the...

    Do you know what your calorie intake is? If you are losing hair, I would estimate you are both eating less calories and carbs than you think you are. How is your weight? Are you normal bodyweight...

    CLA is good for you and in no way, shape or form resembles trans fat from refined oils. One occurs naturally, the other occurs when men in suits inside laboratories across Earth force hydrogen to...

    I am willing to bet you are a low-carber.

    Check your body temperature. You may be in the 96's or 97's.

    Eat more food, eat plenty of carbs, eat plenty of protein. Egg yolks and gelatin help. ...

    This is terrible advice. There is no such thing as a "hardgainer" in the traditional sense. There are people with naturally smaller appetites than others. Some people find it difficult to...

    I agree with that for maintaining. For bulking, 1.5-2g/lb of LBM for protein and 2.5-3g/lb of LBM is what I'd do, at least on training days. For "off days" I'd keep protein the same but scale carbs...

    Who cares? Fats are not essential. Carbohydrate can be converted into fats needed for structure, just like carbohydrate can be created by protein for glucose in time of need. The role of...

    Carbohydrate and fat are energy sources to the body.

    Protein consumption is for tissue repair and regeneration.

    You can't really compare the two. For the overwhelming majority of people,...

    Lift. Heavy weights. 3-4 times a week for an hour a day. Do olympic powerlifts.

    Then eat. A lot.

    Make sure all your plates contain lots of meat or eggs, or possibly meat and eggs.

    How are potatoes a cheat? Is steak a cheat, too? How about eggs? Extremely healthy foods aren't supposed to be off limits.

    Potatoes are healthier than cauliflower anyway. There are few plants...

    The idea of a "cheat day" or a "cheat meal" or "cheating" in general is a terrible, awful, destructive mindset to have. That implies you're doing something wrong. Something terrible that you...

    The "one giant meal" probably ACCIDENTALLY severely cleans up her diet, too.

    Think about it. That means you can't snack. No chips, no soda, bags of cookies, etc. The WORST crap in the American...

    Good post.

    Carbohydrate in general is a very healthy source of calories. It is not the fault of blanket "carbohydrate" that Americans get most of their from genetically modified months-old rancid...

    That's the beauty of homemade salsa. It actually turns out great with canned diced tomatoes. Buy some green peppers, jalapenos, an onion and a few cloves of garlic. Put them under the broiler on...

    Jarred salsa is one of those things that I find difficult to find one that isn't acceptable. It's mostly crushed tomatoes with peppers, onion, garlic, salt and various spices. Plus, they are almost...

    When I first started taking whey protein many years ago, the reaction for the next two weeks was AWFUL. I've never had such frequent, noxious gas before in my life. People say they like their own...

    There are two types of farts: exogenous and endogenous farts.

    Wow, this discussion is really happening.

    Exogenous farts are just from lack of rhythm in breathing. You breathe too quickly or...

    Really? You think it has anything to do with carb intake?

    The US has one of the lowest carbohydrate intakes in the world in terms of percentage of daily calories. What the US has that other far...

    I agree. Whey protein and almond butter...yikes. Highly processed powders and strange additives + difficult fiber and weird vegetarian proteins = digestive stress.

    You're also supposed to fart. Farting indicates food fermenting in your colon. Farting should be "moderate" - both no farts and ridiculous farting indicates problems. If you've gone from zero...

    To be insulin sensitive, you need to spike your blood sugar and ride the curve often. It stands to reason that both never spiking it and eating so frequently it never has a chance to return to...
