That was at the top.  Did you hike or take the mule ride.  I hiked it and it is hard. 

Well, I've never been on a mule, so I must've hiked it.  Funny, I don't recall it being hard  Undecided

Try Glucosamine with MSM.  Source Naturals is a good brand, but there are many out there.

From Splenda's website

Like many no and low calorie sweeteners, each serving of SPLENDAŽ No Calorie Sweetener contains a very small amount of common food ingredients, e.g., dextrose and/or maltodextrin, for volume. Because the amount of these ingredients is so small, SPLENDAŽ No Calorie Sweetener still has an insignificant calorie value per serving and meets FDA's standards for "no calorie" sweeteners.

Lately I've been buying Skippy Natural PB.
Unlike Smucker's this PB has the same taste, texture, etc. of regular PB.

In fact, I don't quite know what the difference is between it and regular.
I compared the label on Skippy Natural to a jar of Jif, and they're essentially identical (within 1g here and there).

Skippy's price isn't bad either. When on sale, I've gotten them for as low as $1/jar.

Where's Princess?
She's the resident expert on Peanut Butter. Cool


Check the ingredients. I think Skippy adds sugar and palm oil  Roll Eyes  IMO, natural peanut butter should be just ground up peanuts, peanut oil (for consistancy) and salt.  Personally, I don't like Smuckers brand.  Something off in the flavor  Undecided  like the peanuts were burnt when they ground them or something.  I've found the local/generic brands to be pretty good.

BTW ~ peanut butter goes with just about anything  Grin apples, baby carrots, raisins, oatmeal, cottage cheese, banana, pretzels, chocolate, straight out of the jar...

Maybe I should remove that signature Huh It is not meant to be a shot at the natural guy, not at all, but I can see how it would be taken that way. In all honesty, it is more of a joke then anything else.

That's not at all how I read it.  But then again, I'm just a bystander.

So what kind of experience do you guys have with whole food supplements?

This company is bases everything in whole food.  Very interesting reading.  You can't get their products just anywhere, it must be through a health practitioner.  Their products are top notch.

Yes sometimes some natties will hate, but sometimes gear users will too.  It has to do with the individuals maturity. 

I have to agree here.  I see it more from the users than the natties.  They "look down" on others who don't train with the same style they do, lift the same weight, etc.  They even give shit to guys when they do cardio.  They "hide" the fact that they're using and try to give people the impression it's all in the training and diet.


If training naturally is so great, then why are you so small?

Similar to that attitude  Undecided
7887  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Question about real food versus liquid food... on: January 16, 2007, 07:53:47 PM
And try to get some fiber, add fruits with the liquid meals and vegetables with the solid ones.


The fiber and nutrients are what would be missing in a predominantly liquid diet.

"L" did you go down to Kalaupapa.

Yes.  Mostly what I remember is a giant rock in the shape of a phallic symbol.  Grin

I was in Hana, Maui yesterday for business.  The options to get there are fly into Kahului, rent a car, drive two hours to Hana, or fly a prop plane directly into Hana.  The Hana airport is tiny (9 seat waiting room) and can only accommodate prop planes.  So, I chose the prop plane, not wanting to spend 4 hours driving. 

I show up at the ticket counter and the PILOT is working the ticket counter of this very small airline.  I'm already concerned.  Then when checking me in they ask how much I weigh.   Shocked  The plane is so small they seat you according to your weight.  Because they caught me of guard, I didn't include the 5 pounds I gained over the holidays.   Embarrassed  Now I'm really getting worried (and conflicted over whether I should disclose my underreported weight).   Smiley 

When it was time to leave, they didn't announce boarding over the intercom, the pilot came and rounded up the passengers.  All 9 of us.  It was a 9-seater.  Smallest plane I've ever seen.  Only slightly bigger than my minivan.  We then squeeze on the plane and we have a bumpy ride (most bumpy ride since riding in a helicopter in the Army).  Naturally, they seat me in the back of the plane.   Embarrassed 

We had to make a pit stop on the island of Molokai to drop off newspapers.  The Molokai landing strip is about the size of a football field.  As we're landing I saw the wreckage of a small plane on a grassy area nearing the landing strip.  No joke.  At this point, I'm saying a few Hail Mary's, and I'm not even Catholic.   Smiley

We take off again and land in Hana.  You could literally feel the tires hit the ground.  Felt like Fred Flintstone using his feet as brakes.  Very spooky.  I'm going to make the 4 hour drive next time.


What kind of 'business' could you possibly have in Hana  Wink  There's nothing there!

I arrived on Molokai (the Ranch) the day after this http://starbulletin.com/2000/05/11/news/story1.html
The crash happened smack dab in the middle of some sacred (blessed) ground where some fesival was to take place. 

We were practically the only ones on the ranch other than an investigator from the plane mfgr.  He was waiting for others from the FAA investigative team to arrive from the mainland.  It took them several days to arrive so in the meantime, we spent a lot of time chatting.  Very interesting process - putting the pieces back together (literally) after a crash.  Interestingly, we discovered in our conversations that I went to high school with his cousins (big/small world)

Weight training is resistance training.

There could be many other reasons, which your Dr. should be proactively investigating.  If he's/she's not, I'd find another Dr. pronto.
