  • Seitan (vital wheat gluten) has the highest protein to calorie ratio….the only down side is it is not a complete protein, but I never eat seitan on its own. i always eat it with something that compliments to make the meal complete. Here a decent recipe that I used a couple of weeks ago……
  • I started getting vertigo in 2014, at the time it was not violent attacks...unfortunately they progressed to the point one day I was walking into the kitchen and it caused me to black out. I woke up on the floor in the kitchen spinning around the room....it stuck around hitting me with violent attacks for a few months and…
  • Haha yes the guitar collection is definitely more impressive than my biceps, I am not gonna deny that.
  • I haven’t been to a gym in years. These resistance bands, the tower, an adjustable bench, and a bar for bench pressing, deadlifts etc.... this is my routine. I think many people under estimate the tension of bands when they are doubled and tripled etc...I have been steadily building muscle! In between this program is 40…
  • I can’t speak to how accurate the watch is, I am not the designer. I thought it was fairly simple when it comes to heart rate and burning calories....this can be done by expending energy with physical activity, or even as simple as using a ‘fat burner’ to burning calories. I prefer expending physical energy, but to each…

  • The big compound movements will generally burn more calories compared to accessory movements. Track your heart rate when doing squats, deadlifts, pull up, bench press, and dips.....then see what you get by doing hammer curls and tricep extensions. I am on a full body program and generally start my lifts with Squats,…
  • Your muscles don’t know the difference if the resistance comes from bands, or weights....it’s that simple. Provide progressive resistance combined with the required nutrition, and muscles will grow. I speak from experience. I haven’t touched weights in 2 years and have built muscle....actually my leg muscles are bigger…
  • To hit protein, fat, fiber, carbs spot on, it takes planning and if that planning doesn’t work out....then protein powder. Seitan is great to hit protein goals, of course tofu, tempeh, soy curls and tvp! To get to the top end of my protein goals for muscle gain and maintaining, protein powder all the way. It really is the…
  • Sisters from different misters.
  • If someone is willing to disregard your feelings and or disrespect you....remember this. That has no boundaries, in fact sone people get off on how far they can push that. Who would want to waste their time with someone like that when there are good people out there. Know this though...this is a you thing. When you realize…
  • I have used resistance bands exclusively for the past 2 years. In combination with a door anchor, a bar bell, and an adjustable bench, I can mimic near anything that I want. I am not talking thin tube style bands, these are very thick and offer significant resistance, especially if you get a couple of sets and double,…
  • ...just mama and her cubs grazing back there ...
  • 43 with 2 teenaged boys!
  • My name is Ian, and I have been vegan for 3 years now. I started out trying plant based meals and then cooking them, during that time I found them to be delicious. I would eat fish occasionally still for the first 10 months though, before going all in. I didn’t want to label myself vegan, because of the negative idea of…
  • I am vegan and have been for nearly 3 years. I get things like... I like hunting too much. I only eat meat that I hunt (I live in a big city and so do they) Oh l love my dog/cat so much! I love bacon What would you do if you were stuck on a deserted island? What would you do if you lived in the forest? You must be iron…
  • She is the sweetest, wouldn’t hurt anything.
  • 2 sets of 4 of the thick resistance bands and a bar. Legs Squats Deadlifts Split squats Jumping jacks x 60 - 80 per set....works my calves pretty good. Chest Seated press with bar or without like dumbbells standing Incline press with or without bar Standing decline press with or without Fly one side at a time Back Lat…
  • I’ve been vegan for 2.5 years now. I originally did it for health, but it became much more for me now. Do I feel better? Without a doubt, I haven’t had to take prescriptions at all since about 6 months in, which is when I finally cut out fish (the last animal product). Will it work for you? Well that depends if you eat…
  • Here’s a falafel recipe I just made this morning, I added brocoli to mine as well and and not use any oil or flour. To not use flour, I just didn’t add the vegetable broth, so the mixture was already dry....however I did add some panko to the mixture to make it easier to roll into balls. They taste great! I also made some…
  • *yawns*......
  • Lol the beans comment is not really a great comparison. As I stated above....not telling anyone to do anything. I really couldn't care any less what others eat. Just sharing my experience eat plants. Eat what you like.... You all being triggered by my choice to eat plant based is something to look at though.
  • Actually, I haven't belittled anyone....but your tone sure is walking the line of that. Seems like you might be projecting here. If my descriptions of rotting animal flesh etc...are inaccurate, are you implying that the meat is not rotting or heavily preserved? Are you implying that diary is not fluid from pregnant cows?…
  • If you're triggered by my blunt description of animal products, you will need to figure that out for yourself. I am not in control of that....but it triggered you for a reason. They are an accurate description of animal products, not inflammatory....I assume that you rather they are labelled to something more appealing. I…
  • No I eliminated all animal products. Sure, if you're happy eating the rotting flesh of dead animals, fluid extracted from pregnant cows, chicken amniotic fluid, etc...and your health has improved significantly...thats your choice, good for you. I wish you well on your journey. I prefer plants, and I know the difference in…
