Can you argue your point? Why is it "more" nutritious to roast or steam considering you basically heat it anyway

Yes, exposure to too much heat, light or air does rob them of some of their nutrients.  Soaking vegetables can rob them of their nutrients since many of the minerals and vitamins found in vegetables dissolve in water. Additionally, the agitation caused by the boiling water can cause the vegetables to break up and the nutrients to evaporate.  If you're going to boil,  let the water boil first and then add the vegetables to cut down on soaking time. Steamed vegetables tend to retain more vitamin C than boiled vegetables.

Here's what I was doing at 6 AM on a Saturday morning. I am loving it..

Boiling vegetables is the least nutritious and most tasteless method of cooking them.  Steam them or better yet, roast them.

Cute videos.  Gives me some ideas.  The only thing I would change is NO added salt and change up the whole wheat flour for some other type of flour.  I avoid wheat in everything.  Probably would change the type of oil too (canola = GMO).  Dogs really like cinnamon.  Not sure if it's the smell or taste, but with the applesauce, I'd add that too.

I didn't watch this yet, but I'm already pissed off.

They'll be around, just probably not out of Cali and probably not @ .49 each.

Looks pretty good!

I'll replace the agave with some sugar or artificial sweetener. Agave syrup sounds gross tbh..

It tastes fine.  Kinda honey like.
It's yummy, vegan, and great for your skin.   Tongue

Try this recipe Princess L. It's a little lighter. Less avocado, and no chocolate chips.
Not quite as fudgey, ...more moussey.

I'll have to give it a try before the impending avocado shortage

64  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Cheat/re-feed meals. on: March 08, 2014, 12:18:31 PM

Even though I have this all planned out, I can never know when to have a re-feed meal in that first phase of the diet, when I'm completely in keto. Last Saturday I had a high carb meal because I felt like I was going hypo, brain was fuzzy, blood sugar must have been very low.
I don't feel like I need a cheat meal today, but my family is celebrating int'l women's day, its apparently a big deal to Ukrainians, and we're going out to all you can eat sushi.

My question is, do I pig out on carbs and call it a cheat day because its been a week since my last cheat? Or do I eat all the sashimi I can along with some salads and seaweed salads and pray I stay in ketosis until I feel like I really need a cheat?

Doing keto diet, only had cheats when brain felt fuzzy and blood sugar was low, today going to all you can eat sushi with family and have no self control when it comes to sushi. What do I do? Eat protein/fats only or pig out on carbs and hold off on cheat meals for the next 2 or so weeks until I need it next?

At what point does that typically happen?  8 days? 12 days? 5 days?  With your experience, you should be able to predict it fairly accurately and nip it in the bud.  With regards to today, unless you're prepping for a contest, I'd say relax and have fun with the family.

The USDA had not received any reports of illness because of the recalled Rancho meat as of a statement issued in February. But the agency called it a "Class I recall," meaning it is a "health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."

The wide range of products subject to recall included 30-pound boxes of beef lips, mountain oysters and sweetbreads, as well as 40-pound boxes of veal bones and 60-pound boxes of veal trim.

Today is the best day to work your biceps and triceps do it in the  evening and  do lighter sets to get that pump then take a shower put on a tight shirt and hit the clubs you will thank me later when you are banging that hottie.

The best time to do bis is when the squat rack isn't in use which is pretty much all the time.

That's correct, those scales aren't very accurate (based on various circumstances like lean mass, before/after training and so on...). Your waist circumference is just a vague indication since it says nothing about your body composition.
I would suggest that you visit a gym and ask if they perform skinfold measurements, or seek someone with a skinfold caliper and the experience. Perform those measurements every x week(s) on the same time and conditions, and keep a log of your diet.

Sorry DP to disagree (sorta) with you again ( Kiss), but I wouldn't bother with the skinfold caliper test at this point.  At ~40% which she likely is, calipers are going to be extremely difficult if not impossible (they open up just so far ya know).  Accuracy isn't at all an issue at this point, just a consistent downward trend, so taping various locations is the easiest method and def. better for the psyche.

Still got my hair...but greys have started in over the last year. I can actually see them without searching now. My girls used to get $1 for everyone they found and I fear I will either go broke or bald (or both) if we continue that chore.

ooo  don't do that.  It damages the follicle and the hair that regrows in that follicle will grow all knarley

Mrs.Muscles, you're new to GetBig, so you might not be familiar with its history.
I understand that you feel as though you're being attacked, ...but please trust me when I tell you, you're not.

Montague, Princess L, and Necrosis have done one heckuva job turning this board around, cleaning it up, and completely transforming it from the absolute cesspool it was back in 2003/2004 when I first started posting here, and have the well earned & well deserved respect of posters here including myself. Their influence is such that they even have a civilizing effect on some of the other boards.

In my experience not one of these mods has ever bullied, or condoned the bullying of others.

They just engage in tough love. They give good advice, and are extremely knowledgeable.

In the pursuit of our goals, we can have only one of two things: RESULTS or EXCUSES, but we can't have both.

ps: if you want to get on Princess L's good side, .......   pssst:   FISH OIL   Cheesy

pps: now to my original reason for even responding before I went off down the bunny trail, don't fall into the trap of doing it to show anyone but yourself. Having been the object of a few haters over my lifetime, I realize that anger may fuel motivation... for a quick moment or two, ...but it's not sustainable. When it comes down to it, jealous haters, or loser Internet trolls are completely irrelevant in your life, so it's impossible to sustain the level of anger, or even conscious thought to these cretins in order to keep you motivated. Do it for no one but you. Your love for yourself, and your desire to accomplish whatever you desire and your faith are the only constants that will sustain you through this process. Good Luck, and Much Success To You.

Hopefully, this doesn't fall on deaf (MIA) ears.
74  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Pop on: March 05, 2014, 11:38:15 AM

Wouldn't be surprised either way.

But, I give everyone the benefit of doubt when they're new because you never know.

Let me guess, "MrsMuscles" gave up, and not just on Getbig...

It would appear that way wouldn't it?  This IS the longest time between posts since she began her tenure here  Undecided

I've got a few more years on you two in the cynical department.
75  Getbig Womens Area / Open Talk for Girl Discussion / Re: Ladies....Are We Interested In Resurrecting The Womens Section??? on: March 05, 2014, 11:26:31 AM
I donno...I guess approved male posters is going to be the happy medium between female only and completely open.

Perhaps it's not the ideal solution, but it's something.  It gives the guys (who aren't yet approved) a moment of pause to remember this is a place where some dignity and respect is required.  Nothing more is expected and nothing less is accepted.  Anyone who is willing to demonstrate a reasonable level of respect at all times, shouldn’t have an issue with agreeing to the rules of engagement.   Not agreeing and then posting IS disrespectful to the women of the board and those men who have.

BS, this board was rather lively. Unfortunately the men moved in and pretty much took it over to the point where the women just stopped posting. Then there was another go at it, and a few guys came in and started attacking women in general, making sexist comments objectifying women which started a fight between men & women. It was so obvious, ...but the men didn't get it. A few realized they didn't get it, and bowed out deciding to leave us our little piece of GetBig in peace.

Then, one of the mods and her boyfriend turned it into their own little playground.

The few men left who knew how to play nicely with the girls in the sandbox got tired of what many referred to as "The Mike & Laura Show"  a second mod was simply MIA,  another was bored out of her mind and losing brain cells by the minute having to read some of the banality here, ...afterall, there is just only so much makeup & lipstick topics a working brain can endure.

A few female posters here even started taking their feuds from other boards over here and the moderation tended to be a little cliquish.

There have been a few good threads that were extremely informative and very helpful that the men watched, but didn't participate in... like the infamous Tampon thread, but most of the original and most consistent posters male & female who preferred this board, have left GetBig sick of the crap they have to wade through.

Good assessment  Wink

I really have no idea how or when I became a mod here.   Then again I have the memory of a goldfish (oh look!  A castle)  I never requested it.  There were plenty of other women who actively modded the board and I basically stayed out of it.

There’s a whole plethora of reasons IMO.  Many women have come and gone, but the original active  “core” being gone has a lot to do with what has gone on off-line.  Without going into specific details, the real life interference had significant impact.  It’s not a matter of “ban them”.  Ban who?  Attacks and real-life stalking come from virtually unknown sources and those attacks often times have NOTHING to do with what has been revealed online.

My opinion isn't worth shit but just wanted to say I'm all for the ladies board. I've been a member of GB for a long time and back in the day this site was really cool and the majority were mature cool people. I like to post on the ladies board for advice to be honest. I have 4 daughters and sometimes I need an honest answer or a womans perspective on things / my actions. (sometime we men can be assholes and not see it clearly)

Types of GOOD advice I've gotten here over the years - dating, husband, step parent, parent of teenager girls, anniversary gift suggestions, argument settlement... In all honesty I respect most of the ladies here, especially the old school - Princess, Laura, Stella, 24kt and even Linda.   All have proven wise and have saved my ass or humbled me at one time or another.

I appreciate the straight forward talk and not the lets not hurt his feelings bullshit.

My deepest sympathies
