So thinking about trying the liquid and if it bothers me I will mill my seeds in a coffee grinder. Or should I just go straight to the coffee grinder?

Both are an acquired taste IMO ~ ground is not as strong tasting.

Will it "gunk up" the gears with oil?

They're not that oily.  They should pulverize into a sawdust consistency ~ then stop grinding.  No problem adding to a smoothie if the fibery texture isn't bothersome.
78  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Flax seeds on: March 03, 2014, 03:10:50 PM
Do you need a coffee grinder to grind them or can you just throw them in your blender with your protein shake to grind them? 

It's going to depend on your blender.  Maybe something like a Vita-Mix or even a Bullet might work.  You'd have to grind them first before adding anything else for it to work.  A coffee grinder does work great though.

I can always count on the Princess for cooking advice.  This stuff is cheap, $6-7/lb and tastes like smoked salmon.

Gonna make my schmear and report back tomorrow Cool

You know, I bet this would be good with your little thingys added (diced up).


Ingredients

2 large yellow onions
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt  (don't add)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream (sub w/Greek Yogurt)
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Directions

Cut the onions in half and then slice them into 1/8-inch thick half-rounds. (You will have about 3 cups of onions.) Heat the butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions, cayenne, salt, and pepper and saute for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 more minutes until the onions are browned and caramelized. Allow the onions to cool.

Place the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until smooth. Add the onions and mix well. Taste for seasonings. Serve at room temperature.

Because 'homeowners' never just go for the cheapest quote and ignore everything else.  Fuck em.  You get what you pay for.

Are you saying the more someone pays, the more honest the work/workers?

A splash of fresh lemon and a sprinkle of dill might be a nice addition too.

Cool, thanks mate....I was gonna chop em up, mix with sour cream, hardboiled egg, shallots, and eat with rye chips.  I'd use cream cheese as the base and cut it with the sour cream or Greek yogurt along with your other ing.  Rye  Huh  not a fan.  Maybe toasted pita...

You think curry would go well with the smokey flavor?   Undecided Don't think so Lips sealed
83  Getbig Misc Too Board / Getbig Comments Suggestions Complaints Board / Re: 29 Seconds to go before it lets me post.... on: February 28, 2014, 09:39:00 PM
Analysis has showed that it takes at least 29 seconds to fully think out, write and post a thoughtful responsible post for the average Getbigger.  Some obviously take more time into great posts, and others... well... hence the 29 second rule.

Many of you couldn't take the 32 seconds, as analysis has proved that is way too long, so it was lowered and alas, many are happy.

Unfortunately, you cannot please every one, every day, or every time.

so whatever...

Now, let me enjoy from room here at Columbus, Ohio after a good night out eating, relaxing and seeing old friends.  By the way, no snow but it is 18 degrees right now.  And it is cold, coming from a California Los Angeles resident where it hasnt gone down below 45 in a while.


Me thinks a cocktail or two were consumed prior to this post  Wink

At least I'm trying. Nobody is very encouraging except for a few people. I will show yout hat I can do it!

I’m not going to speak for anyone else, but a big reason you haven’t received much encouragement is because over the years many knowledgeable veteran members have invested a lot of time and energy in newbies.  These “newbies” either disappear in short time never to be heard from again or they turn out to be a gimmick.  Sadly, we've been jaded. Noobs need to demonstrate they’re genuine before receiving much positive feedback.

I don't know about men needing permission to post here...that would be like restricting women from a men's section, and it also implies that women need protection. And like kini said, the women we want are boss a$$ bichez
It's true.

I'm suspecting the board wasn't being moderated properly if it got that out of control. But whatev.....shit happens. Lol @ a chick getting banned three times. WTF do you have to do to get banned 3 times hahahahaha.  Cheesy

I think men should be allowed without permission as well. Most people on this board are actually well behaved believe it or not.

Again, the rules are in place for a reason, however lame it may seem.  Ron does not want this section to be a mini G & O. There were no bigger "ginas" than the ones mentioned above. Each and every one of them held their own (there were others too). There were several more/other mods as well.    Everyone has a limit.

BAN HAMMER.

Easy.

Honestly  Roll Eyes  for someone so highly educated, you can say some pretty birdbrained things.  Don't be so naive.

There's pages and pages of good old stuff.  Happy reading & feel free to resurrect.

These are the rules.  Seriously, it's not that difficult.


Some male members of Getbig have been known to purposely offend women on this site which has resulted in very few women posting here and has discouraged others from joining.

In an effort to make current female members of getbig feel comfortable and to encourage other females to register and participate, males must be approved by the moderators in order to be able to post on this particular board.


1. Show common courtesy at all times. Know the difference between a difference of opinion and a personal attack. Don't engage in insults. Do remember that we have members from a variety of nations, races and religious beliefs.
2. Do not post solicitations or advertisements without permission.
3. Do not post threats or any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, or invasive of a person's privacy.
4. This forum is for support, empowerment, sharing opinions and entertainment. Getbig.com is not a professional advice forum, and no one should use it as such. For medical problems, consult a medical professional.
5. Moderators may move posts as deemed necessary and at their discretion.
6. Do not register or post under multiple user names or pretend to be female when you are not.  If you are confused, please seek professional help and/or your doctor's advice.
7. Report objectionable posts to the moderators rather than responding in kind.
8. The moderators reserve the right to edit or delete posts that violate forum rules. Spamming will not be tolerated.
9. By registering to use the forum, you agree to abide by all terms and conditions, and give the board administration staff permission to contact you at the e-mail address listed in your profile.  
10. Members who violate forum rules will first receive a warning, and upon their second violation will be either temporary or permanently banned from this board.


If you agree to conduct yourself according to the above guidelines, please PM either STella (Butterbean) or PL (Princess L) or agree on this board to follow the rules for "approved male poster status."  Cheesy  When you have been approved, you will see your name on the "Approved Male Posters" thread.

Meanwhile, if you are female, welcome.  You are already approved.  Our intention is a safe place for you to post freely on getbig without fear of attack or harrassment.  We request that you abide by the same guidelines that we ask of the men that must be approved to ensure a pleasant environment  Smiley






91  Getbig Womens Area / Open Talk for Girl Discussion / Re: Ladies....Are We Interested In Resurrecting The Womens Section??? on: February 26, 2014, 03:54:27 PM
Name them. Name and ban. Why were these members not punished for harassment in this section? How bad did it get?

The rules sometimes seem a bit abitrary. A man has to ask permission to post; a woman can post automatically. No matter if the woman is real/fake or constructive/trolling. Yes, I understand any trolling post can and will be removed. But the fact remains that a woman needs no permission to post here, just because she is female. I am not in favour of positive discrimination on any ground, let alone on gender.

I also think that having to ask permission to post first, stops men from adding interesting input to any discussion here. If I were a man, I would not bother to ask permission and either post (as phreak does) or just don't post at all and keeping the interesting info to myself. Wink

As written in the description of what Ron wanted this board to be when he first created it:
 
"Some male members of Getbig have been known to purposely offend women on this site which has resulted in very few women posting here and has discouraged others from joining.

In an effort to make current female members of Getbig feel comfortable and to encourage other females to register and participate, males must be approved by the moderators in order to be able to post on this particular board."
 
When this particular board was first started, Ron wanted NO males posting here.  Initially, we had to delete them all.  After talking to him about it, he agreed that if they could participate without causing problems they should be allowed to post here.  That is where the "agreement to the rules" element came from.
 
This board was very busy and fun for years.  Even people that had feuds on the other boards would normally be civil to one another here.  And if they weren't, they would be edited or deleted (and warned if necessary).  This went both ways; for males and for females.
 
When threats and outings became more of the norm, less people post on the whole of getbig and of course this affects this board as well.  I'm not going to post details here regarding the threats and who they came from, but it is important to know that if you reveal information about yourself, and then someone gets butthurt by you or decides they don't like you, they may "internet stalk" you and will possibly find out your information.  What they do with it then depends on that person.
 
For now the rules will remain unless Ron wants them gone.  It shouldn't be that painful to agree to be civil to each other on here.  Even if females are uncivil, they will be edited/deleted/warned.  One female has been (temporarily) banned from this board 3 times.  The only other person banned was a male for a temporary period of time.
 
If these guidelines are too harsh for you and you want to make your own board, but stay in the female section, start posting on the Fitness/Figure area.

I disagree.  The calories in these beverages still satiate hunger, like food.  It's not like it's necessarily going to be Additional calories, and DroppingPlates' point is excellent as well.

Also are insulin responses necessarily bad?  No, especially post workout.

She was/is drinking ~100 ounces worth of soda or other sugary drinks (juices) which should be replaced with water or equivalent, not "milks", "creams", or juices.  Someone who should be eating ~1500 cal/day should not be wasting them on liquid calories. 

As far as the insulin response statement ~ she doesn't work out.

CIVIL is key, but I don't think there's a shot in hell that it will happen.
I enjoy getbig more than I ever enjoyed Siouxcountry, but I also accept that I can never be as honest about some things here as I could be there because everything turns into a chance to "own" someone or a chance to sexualize here. The opposite is true as well. There are things I can say here without and fallout, like about my diet and training, that would be regarded with disdain there because for some reason Jason thinks he needs to save adult women from their own decisions.
I don't know, there really isn't an "Eden" as far as the internet goes...

The G&O has always been owning central  Roll Eyes but we've done our best to keep it off the women's board.   There shouldn't be any issues with your honesty here.
96  Getbig Womens Area / Open Talk for Girl Discussion / Re: Ladies....Are We Interested In Resurrecting The Womens Section??? on: February 25, 2014, 12:30:34 PM
Honestly Phreak your input is welcome.

The rules for this section need to be changed.

There is no need to "baby" the ladies of Getbig any longer. The wimps are at Siouxcountry and the ladies with real vaginas are here. We don't need nor want to be pampered. We just want to have some great discussion here.

Some honest but civil discussion would be a great thing for this section.

The rules are in place for good reason although somewhat relaxed in recent years, they will remain for now.  The women who were most active in years past are sadly gone due to incessant harassment from those unnamed  (CQ, RIP, BEAST, Laura, newmom, W8 etc. and OS (R.I.P.  Cry)   Of course pampering isn't necessary ~ never was.  Personally, I'm not familiar with SC, but I can just imagine what you speak of  Wink , but also please refrain from "bashing" another site.  I'm sure Ron runs into some of these folks in his travels.
97  Getbig Womens Area / Open Talk for Girl Discussion / Re: Ladies....Are We Interested In Resurrecting The Womens Section??? on: February 25, 2014, 12:16:38 PM
Agreed, some men have valuable input. E.g. I am an expert tampon buyer. Grin And I have coached a woman or two. Many men have. In fact I bet there are dozens of men who have trained women professionally for every one woman who has trained another woman.

The problem here now is the bizarre enforcement of the rules. Technically I'm not even allowed to post this (didn't request permission to post!). But I'm almost sure it will stand, as it is positive and doesn't step on any toes. Then again if I post something that isn't rabidly feminine (or sucking up to feminine mores in general) then the post gets deleted 'because I didn't ask permission to post'. That's bullshit: a rule exists or it doesn't. And if it exists it should be enforced consistently, without personal prejudice.

I think men are fine with moderation. There are many subfora here that are all knowledge, no flaming. The AAS board is just one great example: some of the biggest users, but no roid rage. The nutrition section is also fine.


In my opinion you need responsible moderators, who moderate based ONLY on rules, not personal preference. Factual disagreement or clearly labelled personal opinions should be allowed, even from men. Not allowing normal discussion has turned this section into the perfect stereotype of what men think of women: 'women talk, men are supposed to sit back and shut up'. Well, it's clear how well that strategy is working...


YOU have been asked to formally agree to the rules.  I'm asking you again...nicely  Wink if you wish to continue.  I'm sure your input would be appreciated.
98  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Water Intake on: February 25, 2014, 12:02:32 PM
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 crępes 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/we’ve 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 – Diet 101; something like Weight Watchers.  Most kids manage to graduate kindergarten and even high school before going off to college.

Hi.
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.
