Check out my blog on nature and nurture!
Try: Pickled okra, sauerkraut, fermented salsa, pickled hot peppers, kimchi, almost anything. If you can't buy it, you can make it!
By the way, store bought brands normally have most of the good stuff missing. There are a few exceptions (stuff sold at Whole Foods, ect.) but sourcing a good fermenter who sells at local farmer's markets or making your own (just need saltwater, veggies, and a few days) is best.
As women, we have been fed for years the following: do more reps at lighter weights so you don't bulk up. While a small number of women will bulk up if they do heavy weights, most won't. I could lift heavy weights from now until they put me in the crematorium, and I'd just get stringy. I'll never have a great ass about which songs are written (Baby Got Back), but I can have the firmest small ass on the block.
Laughing [and droppin' it like it's hot] as I reply - that's freakin' hilarious!!! Yep, I have fallen for the same advice regarding weights. Gonna ditch the stairmaster for a while and head strait for that section of the gym that terrifies the [bleep] out of me... you know, where all the meat heads hang out. I have no idea what I'm gonna do when I get there, but at least I'll be outta my comfort zone!
