don't really see the point. ppl make it too complicated.

purest form of butter, grassfed butter is fine and i would imagine using ghee over that has a negligible difference if any at all.

It's been said, I think even in this thread, that white rice is brown rice after it's been stripped of a lot of its nutrients. Which, in my opinion, makes it pointless as anything other than a source of calories and carbohydrates without much else. Hence my use of the word "empty". If it's wrong then it's wrong, it's just what I've been hearing my entire life. One of those things where you hear something enough times from enough different sources, you figure it must be true.

Anyways, did some quick digging and found this page, which gives a breakdown of brown vs. white rice: http://www.drlam.com/opinion/brown_r...white_rice.asp

According to the table provided, it looks like the most significant difference is in fiber content, followed by the B vitamins and various others... However, there is no documentation for where exactly this information was found...any idea how accurate this is?

calories and a carb source. that's why ppl eat rice. they eat it it for it's macronutrient value not it's miniscule micronutrient value.

Gotcha. I always saw it as that and a source of fiber. But I hardly ever eat rice to begin with, so I will just scoot my little uneducated butt on out of here lol.

Down 33 lbs. A week from today, I will have been watching what I ate for 2 months.

Does anyone have any ideas for food that is easy to portion or pre-packaged that is low in sodium? Most of the time I eat lunch and snacks in my office while working. I have been looking at my sodium intake and it is pretty high - mainly prepackaged food that I have been relying on during the day.

Over the past couple of days I have been relying more on fruit, greek yogurt, cereal, granola bars, etc. but I need to find other things that will work too.

If you have the right tupperware, you can portion anything I fantastic trick I've found to cut sodium in tuna is to rinse it. When you drain it, just fill the can back up with water a time or two, and drain it like normal.

Fell a little behind on my workouts and missed two days so I killed myself by doing two P90X workouts yesterday and now I'm back on track after my lunch workout. I haven't been on a scale in a week or two because I'm not as worried about my weight as I am loosing inches. I just started week 6 of my P90X workouts and I'm liking the results so far. I'm waiting to post my progress pics until I get to 90 days. My 30day pics already show some great progress!

I have done that with canned chicken. I really cannot stand canned tuna without some sort of hot sauce to take the flavor away. The hot sauce is generally just sodium though.

Veggies & fruit, such as: carrots, strawberries, blueberries, celery, etc.

Typically, cereal and granola bars are loaded with sugar and sodium. Alternatives would be raw nuts. My fav way of eating it is greek yogurt (plain preferably) with chopped up nuts & fruit pieces.

I try to stick to the healthier cereals like Total since it at least has some vitamins and fiber. I have been digging the greek yogurt (either plain or honey) with frozen blueberries and rasberries (the no sugar added kind). Usually have that for breakfast or desert pretty regularly.

Maybe try low-sodium seasonings, or mix up your own? I found a low-sodium Cajun seasoning that I've been putting on almost everything.

Mrs. Dash has a great collection of seasonings. I think McCormick just recently started releasing low-sodium/no salt seasoning mixes as well.

Do you have any favorites? I need to get some others, the Cajun one is the only low-sodium anything in our spice cabinet right now. Unless I make my own mix.

I mix it up. I have 3 different bottles: 1) garlic & herb; 2) tomato, basil, & garlic; 3) Italian seasoning

The spicy one is pretty good, too. It's got a pretty nice kick without being overly spicy.

Ok, so I have been going at it for the past 3 weeks and have dropped from 185 lbs to 173 lbs, which is my high school weight. I have been eating very few calories ~1500, but have kept my protein intake at about 180g per day. This is the point where that weight needs to be put back on(in muscle that is).

Any suggestions on where I should be calorie intake and nutrient wise? (I know I am where I am supposed to be at for daily protein intake)

Before I moved to Kansas in November I was around 6'5" 240lbs, I was in the process of bulking up, and after I got home from the Holidays I decided to start losing weight for spring break

1/07/12 - 227lbs
1/22/12 - 218lbs
2/14/12 - 215lbs
2/18/12 - 211lbs

I just started watching what I eat and try to not eat processed food. My go-to fast food is subway, but I'm trying to quit that as well because of the carbs in a footlong wheat sub. I might take this to the next level and actually count calories and stuff, but for now I'm just eating healthy and doing 30mins-1hr of cardio at least 3 times a week. I'd like to get under 200lbs by spring break, but we shall see what happens

To gain muscle weight you'll have to eat more than 1500 calories, that's for sure.

Lol, yup, I know that, but I was going for a pretty heavy fat loss too. And so far so good on that front.

I read the article and talked to my buddy who will be a dietitian (and a damn good one) in a year. He has me on a good track for overall results.
