Nutrition when injured

What most people overlook is that the caloric requirements can PLUMMET! If you don't drastically change your eating habits when you get an injury that limits your mobility then you get fat, very, very quickly.  Yes, it sucks to be injured and not be able to lift weights and get stronger but you want to know what is worse?  Getting fat and weaker at the same time! Lets take what happened to me last week as an example, I twisted my ankle. In one day I went from an activity level of 12 hours of intense cardio a week with...

Best Protein Powder

Not sure what protein powder to buy? You are not alone! Here are the best protein powders and why they are the best. More money is spent on protein powders than all the other types of supplements combined. Its really important you understand what a "good" protein powder is so you dont fall prey to marketing hype and waste all kinds of money.

Visit a country like Laos, Vietnam, or China and it will change your perspective. I have been to them all ... which is why I VOTE! By the way, when it comes to federal politics I share the cynicism of many. Our "one person, one vote" has become "one dollar, one vote" and the corporations have a lot more dollars than we do.
