What can you do after eating?

Question • 6 answers

I read in a Health page that you can`t do some of these things after eating: 1. Smoke 2. Eat fruits 3. Drink green tea 4. Do not bathe 5. Do not walk (as in an exercise walk not walk from your room to the garage type of walk) So, what exactly should...

Newest answer

That has got to be one of the most absurd lists I have ever heard. It sounds like alist of excuses to eat a lot and be lazy. Maybe its just me. I like many of the others don't exercise right after due to the stomach upset. It really depends on what I have e...

Skimmed or Soya Milk?

Question • 8 answers

There is a big debate on which is healthier and I was wondering if anyone knows any of the most current research or finding on the two? Which do you prefer and why? (I realise that almond/hazel nut milk is the best option over all)

Cauliflower - what is your favorite dish?

Question • 5 answers

I have a cauliflower to cook, but am stuck in a rut, so any ideas would be welcome.

Newest answer

I make a cauliflower "rice" similar to this recipe.  Our family really likes it.. you can just season to the way you like it, and we often use other colors like orange/purple cauliflower just to change it up..    http://nomnompaleo.com/post/1626071845/anoth...

What is good with Kale?

Question • 7 answers

Uncooked preferably. Just trying to add more greens in and can't figure out how to love kale. Romaine is getting expensive.

Newest answer

If you are looking for a substitute for salad greens, think outside the box. I like kale, but I do not like all the big leafy chunks in salad. I make a salad with coleslaw mix dry and broccoli slaw which is just slivered broccoli. Between the fiber content...

Should protein shakes be included in your calorie intake?

Question • 12 answers

At times after a workout I have one of those recovery shakes that are sold at my gym. I drink one and then about an hour later have my meal. Should it be considered a meal itself? Or should I add it to my meal?

Newest answer

It should be counted. Protein shakes have a significant amount of calories and even though those calories are focused to help you have the best recovery for your strenghth and muscle development, it is still calories and you should keep track of them along...

Pre-workout snack

Question • 14 answers

What's a good pre-workout snack? I work out first thing in the morning and I have a protein bar first to hold me until breakfast. My favorites are Zone Perfect bars (I LOVE chocolate).

Newest answer

Though I generally don't eat till after a workout--sometimes my body needs it--watermelon-grapes or a banana does the job.

Does anybody know if the Fat Flush Water recipes work??

Question • 2 answers

FAT FLUSH WATER !!! You should drink at least three 8 oz glasses per day, they say the longer it sits, the better it tastes. You can eat them as well but they are intended as flavoring and still work, so that is a personal choice. The Vitamin C turns fat i...

Newest answer

It think this is probably a good thing for changing up your water, just to make it interesting. Or if someone is trying to cut out pop or something. But reallly depending on this to flush fat is a little ridiculous
