Are there any vitamins that should not be mixed together, either because of negative reactions, or just reduced efficiency? I find it easier to take all of my vitamin supplements at once. I have an alarm set on my phone to take them or else I... (more)

You want to take calcium with a meal, and probably the probiotic on an empty stomach.

For leaning out purposes, why is it better to keep heartrate at65-75%' rather than higher for the duration of cardio? If you aren't consuming carbs won't it be fat that is burned anyway? Thanks peeps:)

It's all BS, IMHO. Do high intensity intervals and get the best of both worlds.

Hi everyone! I've done paleo off and on all school year, and have lost about 20lbs from it (my equivalent of the 'freshman 15'). While I'm feeling a lot better now, I still want to get rid of the last 5, 10 tops, pounds. I went back on paleo a few... (more)

If it's just to get those last 5-10 off, switch to lean meats and vegetables (may use very small amounts of coconut oil or olive for cooking/salads) for three weeks, and allowing yourself 20-30g carbs post workout every 3-5days. Eat a high... (more)

Eat more fat. 30g isn't nearly enough. I'm a medium frame female and I typically eat 80-100g a day. Lean cuts of meat matter most if you're getting conventionally-raised meat. If you're getting grass-fed meat, but cuts as fatty as you... (more)

I find the whole proper support thing to be very modern and maybe a bit Victorian. High breasts and perky cleavage are a pretty modern invention, first brought about by the corset, and then by those torpedo bras. The images you are likely to see... (more)
