Ok, So I've been eating Paleo for about a month now AND I've joined Crossfit, so I've made some major changes in both diet and exercise. Here's my question--I read somewhere when I was doing 'Body for Life' that you burn up to 300% more... (more)

Slightly off topic, but today I got 8 large butternut squashes, about 40 lbs, for $8. I don't know if one can beat that much nutrition for that money.

Hi, So I was wondering if there is any draw backs or benefits of going from: Two meals (1000 calories and 700) to: 1 Large Meal (1200 calories) and snacking on 200 calories of each: fruit, nuts, meat in between meals. The second option is... (more)

No way is that enough food to gain lean body mass on. You should be eating more. Also, I'd try eating 3-4 real meals instead of the 6 snack-sized meals you're currently eating. You don't need a huge surplus to gain mass, but you do need a slight... (more)

So the studies show better body composition for night eating and carbs especially. Using CBL or Carb Nite, how much time between your last bite and shut eye qualifies as night eating? That is, what's the min and max window here?
