Headaches

Question • 15 answers

@ weeks ago i decided to stop drinking pop, coffee, energy drinks and alcohol but this past week i have headaches that come and go and was told it was because of the lack of caffeine. Could this be true?

Newest answer

i've never been able to cut things down gradually, i have to do it cold turkey or it creeps back into my life. I haven't had a headache since asking this question so i hope the worst is over now.

Protein supplements which poweers bars do you use (or not?)

Question • 6 answers

Do you use powders, bars or not. If so why and what brand. If not why?

Newest answer

Yes I do. If I´m not eating food right after training or if I can´t wait for my next meal anytime  ;) I have some whey protein shake or a bar. Easy and if I´m in the risk of eating to little, at least I don´t want it to be my beloved protein :D

Question • 6 answers

I drink a gallon of water while at work (8 to 12 hour days) and i'll drink about 5 8oz glasses before going to bed.

How much should I be eating for the amount that I work out?

Was hoping someone might be able to help me a little bit. In the past year or so I've changed my lifestyle and generally become active and exercise more regularly. I'd still like to lose a little bit more weight (just now mostly due to Christmas indulgence...

Newest answer

It's not the number of calories that people need to keep watching. For example, if I use 2,400 cals per day and a cup of black coffee has 2 cals, what's to stop me drinking 1,200 cups of coffee to achieve my calorie goal? It's all down to the *quality* of t...

Eat Before/ After A Workout?

Question • 13 answers

I've started going for early morning runs/ walks at about 5am.  I really can't stomach anything that early in the morning, not even fruit.  Should I force myself to eat something before or immediately after my workout?  Will a spoon of honey/ peanut butter...

Newest answer

It depends on your workout. If you're going for hard core cardio, it's always best to fuel your body. Post workout, your body needs to recover. So light, non-fat snacks are best.

How often to drink beetroot juice

Question • 6 answers

I was taking beetroot in a recovery smoothie last year and found it great. This year I'm taking it before longer runs (twice a week). Do others take it before all runs or long training sessions? If so, why?

Beet root (usually as juice) is a supplement with a high Nitrate content that is said to improve physical performance secondary to Nitric Oxide. It appears to have some evidence for this claim in healthy athletes. It is now becoming a common 'pump' ingredi...
