  • For a woman of your age/size, you look to be in good shape as the results of the scan indicate. If you WANT to increase your muscle/bone strength, resistance training would be useful but you will not necessarily reduce your body fat % (which really is not an issue based on the scan) doing so, unless you change what/how you…
  • I enjoy eating cheese and buy it now and then but not regularly. The only cheese that I stock/keep on hand are parm and pecorino that I use for pasta and risotto. My favorite cheese is brie or other creamy cheese variants. My favorite brand of this type is La Tur, which I discovered long ago, which has a bit more flavor…
  • If you have the will power, just quit "cold turkey." My father did it after many years of smoking nothing but Chesterfields. He still died of emphysema and developed a hole (fixed w/surgery) in his lung nonetheless. I quit "cold turkey" too but I had only smoked a few years in my years and, as far as I know, there have…
  • Look for the brand w/the most protein and lowest cals/fat for the lowest price. I'm not consuming powdered protein regularly any more but use to consume quite a bit in conjuction w/heavy lifting and I still have a lot of left over protein powder on hand. My favorite brands were Muscle Milk and MyProtein "whey protein…
  • I signed up for the The Stretch -- min 500m/day for 20 days in the month which in my case is actually 10k meters/day for the 20 days or a total of 200k for rhe month. I also signed up for the Virtual Team Challenge of Jan 1-31. My total meters rowed for the month will be the same as it always is at about 210-220k meters,…
  • Nope. Stopped using my expensive LeMond RevMaster Pro spin bike enirely after I bought my less expensive Concept2 rower about 6 yrs ago which is currently my only for of exercise which I use to row 10k meters per day, 5 days a wk . Tried selling it a couple of times w/o sucess because I didn't want to price it so low that…
  • Thanks! I actually finished the challege today w/a total of 210k meters and a total of $6.40 earned for my charity. I'm sure you'll be able to row the remaining 1,988 meters that you need to row to finish the challenge w/200k meters tomorrow. Even at my slow pace, you'd get it done in less than 12 mins. Just do it early to…
  • The only regular excerise I currently do is row 10k meters/day, 5 days a week. This translates into 1 hour of exercise and about 520 cals burned each day. I still own an expensive spin bike plus a lot of weight lifting equipment and cross fit exercise gear that I hardly use any more. I just row instead because IMO there…
  • Just hit 200k meters for the challenge this evening. Will finish w/210k meters tomorrow as scheduled. C2's "contribution" to my designated charity - the WHO Covid-19 vaccine campaign - is $6 to date. C2's total contribution limit is $70k for the challenge and $55,22.125 has been raised so far.
  • Congrats! As I recall, you were trying to do "catch up" to get to 200k. So, I feel your "pain." ;) FWIW, it's not hard for me to do 200k meters in a month if I row consistently but "catch up" is a b*tch! I always row at least 200k meters during each month long challenge just by doing 10k meters/day, 5 days/wk but when I…
  • Dup deleted.
  • They are very thick/tough and are NOT easily cut w/a knife (or even a handsaw) but it should not be a problem w/a rotary cut off tool w/the proper cutting disk (which if you don't have one already, can be cheaply purchased at Harbor Freight) but you may have to experiment w/different cutting disks to find the one that…
  • While I believe in eating "healthy" (which probably does not mean the same to me as it does to you) is a "good" thing, I am not obsessive about it. Obviously, eating "healthy" almost certainly has some correlation w/longevity but so do a lot of other factors, like genetics (which may be the most important factor of all).…
  • Horse stall mats are cheaper than gym mats, especially if you can pick them up used on Craiglist wc I did. I have one for under my squat rack and one for my deadlift area. If you can't find them used, Tractor Supply sells them new for about [email protected] They measure 4 x6 x 3/4" and you'll need 2. See:…
  • I've "restored" a variety of rusted things. A wire brush (manual and/or rotary) naval jelly are what I use to remove the rust and Rustoleum is what I use for the primer & primary paint color.
  • Glad you're feeling better. I'm triple vax'd for C19 (2 shots of Moderna and a Moderna booster) and also got the high dose flu shot for seniors for the year. Not at much risk of catching C19 (for a variety of reasons that I won't go into here) but I've still been getting myself PCR lab tested monthly since June 2020…
  • Took the poll but don't know what "soup age" I am because I refused to submit my email to All Recipes for the answer. I dont need any more spam in my inbox or my email address added to any more "lists." My guess is my "soup age" is as old as I am - 70. I like certain soups out of a can: Campbell Noodle Soup (w/or w/o rice…
  • Here's are a couple of opinion pieces about Peloton's stock published by the Motley Fool: https://www.fool.com/investing/2021/09/29/1-reason-the-market-is-not-keen-on-peloton-stock/ https://www.fool.com/investing/2021/11/05/heres-why-peloton-stock-got-absolutely-smashed-on/
  • No home weight scale will be perfectly accurate. However, here are at least 2 (one digital and one analog) that the author of the following article claims to be fairly accurate: https://www.livestrong.com/article/184126-most-accurate-body-weight-scales/. The author also lists 2 BF scales which I would disregard simply…
  • My sleep problems have since passed. No current need to use the sleeping pills that I was prescribed or the melatonin that I bought OTC. However, I did resort to wearing socks to bed after I read an article that it helps promote sleep by regulating body temp. Have no idea if that's true or not but I've slept like a baby…
  • Everyone's different but if you don't have the resolve to '"restart" your wt loss efforts now b4 one of the most taxing periods for avoiding overeating is over, what makes you think that you can maintain the effort later? I've been in maintenance for over 6 yrs after an initial 40# wt loss and I've only been able to…
  • I'm not a big "pie (or baked goods) guy. So no TG pie leftovers at my place but I recently made a dedacent no bake icebox choc cake recipe published by Ina Garten that was DELICIOUS but it is so cal rich that I personally wouldn't make/eat it more than once a year (or two)! See:…
  • There are a lot of people who love their Pelotons but: 1) they're epensive 2) aren't as good as other spin bikes that you can buy for the same price or less 3) are really only worth buying if you are the type of person who likes/needs & is willing to pay for the online AV service wc I believe costs another $40/mo. If you…
  • 75% middle class here (more upper than lower on the margins) but this shouldn't be surprising because it's more than likely that the demographic of people using MFP is most likely "middle class."
  • IMO, turkey w/o the skin and/or gravy would be the healthiest TG food item based on its high protein and low fat content. If you don't eat meat, then any veggie w/o any butter or or other dairy products would be next best. Adding skin, gravy, butter, sour cream, salt, oil/fat and whatever else makes things taste "better"…
  • I ate a whole pound of oven baked bacon plus 3 scrambled eggs and an English muffin w/1 tbsp butter and 2/3 tbsp orange marmalade plus 2 cups (20 oz) of black coffee for brunch the other day. It was delicious. LOL! ;)
  • I've made stuffing in the past but no longer. It tastes great but it just fills you up and prevents you from eating more of the "good stuff" (ie., the turkey). The only "sides" that I prepare now are mashed cauliflower and pan (or over) roasted brussel sprouts plus turkey gravy prepared from the drippings. I also use…
  • I cook all of my own meals unless I go out to eat, which at most is only 1-2 days/wk on weekend for brunch. I do not eat any "fast food;" only at cafes/restaurants for dine-in meals where Covid precautions are observed.
  • Should row exactly 210km during the challenge period. Did the 1st 10km today.
  • As a professional boxing fan of over 50 yrs, here's what I've learned about boxers (some very good ones) who decide or are forced to move up in the wt class that they compete in. Boxers who have difficulty making the wt in their wt class often lose strength trying to make the wt and often lose or have difficulty winning as…
