The Tortilla Factory low fat whole wheat tortillas pictured above are a great product.  I have 2 per day (each with a can of tuna and jalapeno sauce- or sometimes with salmon and egg whites with make a great breakfast burrito)
Two tortillas provide 160 calories, 6g of fat, 16g protein, 38g carbs, 28g fiber.  The fiber in particular is valuable, as there are very few other products which provide that amount.  The taste is not that of a regular white flour tortilla but that's OK given the benefit you're getting.

Based on recent experience, which I have posted elsewhere, orange roughy should be added to the list.

Distilled water?

Maybe im wrong but i always thought that distilled water will detract a whole lot of minerals from your body, which will break down your bone structure...

I dont know this for sure but i dont see what's wron with normal tap water.

Peace
Yes, that is true, however lots of people tend to "forget" this info! It is used on a pre-contest basis, in order to promote dehydration. Not the best choice, for sure.

Princess, question on the LaTortilla tortillas which I use and consume 2X per day-

The nutrition labels says only 80 calories, with 3g of fat, 8g of protein and 19g of carbs.  However, 19g of carbs is worth 76 calories, 3g of fat is worth 27 cals and 8g of protein is worth 32cals for a grand total of 135 cals.

Is my math off, am I missing something or is the nutritional information definitely off?  Any insights would be appreciated.

Yah, they're counting 4 calories per fiber gram.  There is a lot of inconsistency in labeling among different food products and companies.  Some food items may include the dietary fiber in the calculation of total calories, others don't.  No wonder Americans are confused  ::)

I use this as my tuna taste disguiser, which is therefore a valuable bodybuilding food to me.

Orange roughy is delicous, but pollock is my every day dinner fish for leaning out purposes due to its price.

This is the product I referred to above.  The Carribean recipe includes black beans, bell peppers, chilli peppers, garlic, onion and lime juice.  Very tasty and a good source of pre-w/o carbs and a ton of fiber and anti-oxidents.  Enjoy.

What about deer meat or hog for your protein? any hunters out there? dehiderated makes a great  snake. how do you all cook it?

for venison steaks and fry em. or make jerky. i'm a very avid hunter(right around  huntin season it makes protein real cheap). bird too such as grouse and duck or pheasant. ammo and tags are much cheaper than gettin chicken and beef at the supermarket. you pay roughly 45-50 for a license and 10 bucks for a box of 20 rnds= 200 pnds of meat. 200 pnds of beef at the supermarket times average 2$ a pound 400 bucks even if ya need to buy a rifle its cheaper to go huntin.

Carbs:       Cornmeal , high in fibre and bulks up very large with alot of water (good when you want quantity with dieting , goes well with splenda and cinnamon , also is cheap)

Protein:      Lentils and brown rice  ,   split peas and brown rice   ,   sesame seeds and brown rice

Not really 1 food and not sure if people will agree but if your on a budget the above combinations make a complete protein and also lots of fibre and good carbs.

All the above are also gluten free for those that can't have oats (god dammit!  >:( :-[ )

i was under the impression that "fiber" couldnt be digested, and your body actually expends more calories failing to digest the fiber than you get from fiber itself..therefore eating fiber is like eating negative calories. and i also thought that it cleaned out your digestive tract and boosted your metaolism, and clinged onto fat in you system...

where am i wrong? please let me know because i have been adding asbout 20 grams of fiber to my oatmeal in the mornings.

Red Wine

stella and I have gone on and on about red wine... to list a few of it's best attributes:
- it's low in calories compared to other alcoholic drinks
- it reduces inflamations
- it fights cancer
- it makes you regular
- it soothes the soul
- it reduces blood pressure
- it increases libido
- it increases erectile function
- it reduces artirial hardening
- it makes ugly men look less ugly
- it gives me something to talk to Stella about
- it gives my left hand something to do as i type right handed...


the list goes on and on
