Some that haven't been mentioned:

*Milk - protein, vitamin d, calcium.   sure it has lactose (and fat if not fat free) but just fine; need energy for working out.  just sub out a little food if to be at the right calories.

*almond milk - has good fats, calcium, magnesium.

*coconut water - they have ones mixed with fruit juice or plain

*coconut milk

Maybe it varies with brands, but the almond milk I've seen and tasted had only up to 1% fat. There's also hazelnut milk (superb for making hot cocoa!), rice milk and oat milk. All a bit to sweet for me for drinking plain, because they all have added sugars. But they are great for making pancakes or crÍpes or bechamel sauce (use xanthan gum for a low carb, low kcal binding agent).

Also try some coconut cream. It's about as fat as coconutmilk, but has some added xanthan gum and/or guar gum to make it thicker and giving it a creamy texture. Hubby loves to add a splash of coconut cream in his chai (spiced tea).

Yes, that sounds like a addiction, so it's good to realise this, since awareness is the first step.
Do you like apple juice? If so, try that for a few weeks and then mix it with water (50/50%).

I have to disagree with all the sugary soda alternatives advice given here.  None of these is a good dieting replacement to water in the quantities water should be consumed.  Still sugar (insulin response) and high calorie (ie; juices, "milks", "creams").

^^That may be deserved. Mrsmuscles seems to be having a plethora of issues with veteran members; especially for being such a new poster. Not a good sign.

I am considering dumping this thread to the V board, but I'll leave it for a while to see what the other mods think.

I say leave it here for now.  I'm erring on the side of she is probably real and terribly misguided.  "She" posted a picture yesterday which I promptly removed for her own good.

She doesn't have to be mean about things! I am here to learn about things so I AM doing the homework!

Your really mean and a bully but I don't care.You know nothing about me and I know it isn't 80 percent. You don't even know what you are talking about.

Believe what you want to believe, but until you reign in the diet, the results of any exercise efforts will be SIGNIFICANTLY LESS than what they would be otherwise.  What I DO know about YOU is what YOU have chosen to reveal on this site and my reply is in direct response to what YOU have said.  Forgive me if you think it sounds harsh, but after eleven years here I/weíve heard it all.  The faint of heart with thin skin do not last.  Those with never ending excuses will not be praised nor achieve results.  You want warm and fuzzy, perhaps SparkPeople would fit the bill.  IMO, you need a basic, structured foundation Ė Diet 101; something like Weight Watchers.  Most kids manage to graduate kindergarten and even high school before going off to college.

I am 25 year old obese female and I am here to change my ways in 2014. I am 5 feet 4 inches and weigh almost 250 pounds. since jan 1 I've already lost 20 pounds so im doing good but I need to do better. my goal is to become an ifbb bikini pro but I know im a long way off.
to tell you the truth I really don't know where to start. I was 269 January 1 and am now 248.
I don't want to get big muscles that looks gross on women haha. but i'd like to be lean and toned.
can you give me something for a beginner that's not going to bulk me up but give me that leaned toned look?
I know they say drink 8 glasses of water each day but is it okay to use other beverages as well? I don't really like water it tastes so gross. I am trying to stay away from pop but I will drink a few cans a day although im trying to cut that down to only 2. I also like juice and coffee.

 I would like to loose my fat and then gain a little bit of muscles but not too much. I don't want to get big like a man.

I will exercise but I don't want to change my diet much right now. I am also not drinking as much pop and I am eating a lot of fruit.

I won't do weights yet but I will maybe try jogging. I hate it though because people make fun of me when I run and they call me things like Forrest Gump and other mean things I won't repeat.  Cry
Right now I am just going to start running for exercise. I was walking and I lost 20 pounds but now I am no t losing anymore.

I would rather not do a diet right now and just focus on exercise. Taking out alcohol is no problem but I like sugary drinks.

I also don't know if I need to lose 100 pounds but I would definitely like to lose another 50.

I didn't mean it like that. I do want to lose 50 pounds and maybe more but probably not 100. I think I would look to skinny. When I do lose 50 pounds I can decide if I want to lose more. I am heavy but I don't think I look that bad.
If I was so lazy I wouldn't be trying to lose weight in the first place! A person should start off slowly though. It's dangerous to do many changes all at once.
Exercising everyday is not realistic for naybody.

Artificial sweeteners cause an insulin response/blood sugar spike in many people.

I believe there's been studies on this re: sucralose (Splenda).  Not sure about other sweeteners, but it seems to happen early in the digestive process - ie; the receptors on/in the tongue, so I would think it would happen across the board.

Well I'm SOOOOOO sorry I'm not perfect like you.  Angry

Youíve come to the wrong place if you think youíre going to get a pat on the back for making poor choices.  That is not Getbigís style anymore than if I said I used to smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day, but Iíve cut that in half.  Kudos for me.  Ainít gonna happen.

You need to lose 100 pounds.  You want to look like a bikini model, but you donít want to exercise.  You donít want to lift weights.  You donít want to change your diet.  You donít want to drink water.  80% of the battle of the bulge is diet so unless youíre willing to make some drastic changes in that arena, your ďdreamĒ will always be just that.

What are the thoughts on diet sodas?

I drink these most days with my meals and feel that the carbonated nature of the drinks despite containing no sugar/calories makes me feel bloated.

Should I cut them out altogether?

Dang, too late. This seems an interesting report, since it's pretty hard to find good/objective reviews on superfood powders.
Have you read the report about this, Princess?

I did a quick PDF save.  Happy to share.  How?

You should never spend less than $3000 dollars if you can afford it. If you can't afford it you should save up. You can have rings resized from bigger to smaller but I don't know about smaller to bigger.

It takes about 30 seconds to make a ring larger and it's a simple fix.  Making it smaller is much more involved.  Best to start out a little too small if unsure.

Did any of you guys see the captain phillips movie its one of the best movie i have seen for 2013, dam good acting from tom hanks.

Yes.  It was very intense.  The scene at the end with him and the air corpsman (female) was incredible.  I can't believe he didn't even get a nomination (Academy) for that role.

People keep telling me how bad it is but I'm not sure why if you only have a little. I used to drink a 6 pack each day and I have cut that right in half. But people are telling me even that is too much. I know the sugar is not good but I thought a little bit would not hurt me! If it is really that bad I will stop it. Cry I think I amy try the switch to diet but I dont'like the taste much.

You can't be serious  Roll Eyes "a little"  That's at least 120 grams of sugar and empty calories.  A total waste.

If it's a common model, Zappos and Amazon are my go - to's.

Zappos great shipping and return policy, but that's in the US.

116  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: United Airlines sucks !!! on: February 16, 2014, 12:21:08 PM

I used to be a frequent flyer and I can tell you from experience that ALL airlines suck!

Flying is pure torture. 

Just be happy you don't have to fly all the time.

Yea, they all pretty much suck these days.  Midwest Express used to be the "best care in the air".  They were awesome.  2 across leather seating, real food served on real china, wine, warm chocolate chip cookies.  All complimentary and not really any more $$$ than others.  But alas  Cry they're gone.  Bastards sold out and merged with Frontier.  Southwest isn't too bad.  At least they don't gouge you on bag fees.

Someone is asking to be bullied.

For the people who think this is great: Yay, a kid at 4 is already perfectly programmed to respond to stimuli specifically designed to elicit emotions. Change the tune and he's sitting up and begging, or rolling over and playing dead when he could be trying to achieve something.

But what is left for me to drink? I hate water and I donnt like the taste of diet sodas.

"Clean" water has no taste, so maybe the water you're drinking has a lot of iron or some other off tasting mineral.  There are lots of sparkling waters out there.  Find one you like.  I recently discovered some at Aldi for .59 that are pretty good.  Also, there are dozens of pixie stick options out there.
120  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Aldi Rocks! on: February 11, 2014, 08:04:12 PM
manchego is awesome.  Not biased although my parents are from Spain and this is our cheese lol.  That is a great price and I bought some at Christmas.  It was good.

What do you do with your Manchego?  I usually just have it as part of a fruit and cheese plate and pick off little nibbles with wine or grate it in place of Parmesan into recipes.
121  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / How long does that food last? on: February 11, 2014, 02:46:04 PM
Dairy, grains, meats, fruits, veggies, and misc food items...some of them have sell by, best by, use by dates. But, if it still tastes or smells good....Unsure how long that food  will last?

You may be surprised to find that you've been throwing away hundreds dollars worth of food a year because you think an expiration date means the food is no longer good. Here are a few reference resources.

Eat By Date is a website that can help answer your questions:

Special buy this week.  $1.99 The Thai chili sauce is awesome.

This recipe is ALWAYS a hit!!

For the dipping sauce, I use the Greek yogurt with some of that Thai sweet/hot chili sauce mixed in.  People rave about it!

Once in awhile Aldi will have a special buy on dipping sauces.  I just opened a bottle the other day and used it.  It was AWESOME.  Had some great kick to it.

125  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Aldi Rocks! on: February 11, 2014, 01:13:46 PM
$2.99  limited

If you didn't snag a few of these around Christmas, they are/were back for a hot minute a week or so ago.  Your store might have a few left.  Grab 'em while you can, they're awesome.

Same with these

Apparently people haven't discovered the Manchego.  Usually $15/lb & up.  They've had 5oz wedges for $3.99 since Christmas on a special buy.  Doesn't seem to be selling ~ a shame cuz they probably won't bring it back  Embarrassed
