  • Forum Post: Re: Protein Pancakes ...

    These sound really good, but I have a question. If I try these pancakes, what serving size should I use? Are these the palm-size protein or the fist-size serving of carbohydrates? Jacium

    CN-fury Check the library at this site for the muffin recipe, and many others. Or, actually it was faster to just use the search box for "pumpkin". Jacium
  • Forum Post: Re: To the Men: What is your portion size of oatmeal?

    Charlie, I'm pretty close to the 1/2 cup on oatmeal, but probably take in about 3/4 cup when I'm doing cereals. I like to blend some high fiber cereal with wheat cereal, or granola, add a dozen blueberries, or dried cherries, plus about 5 walnut halves (crushed) in the cereal, add milk, and microwave...
  • Forum Post: Re: Carbs, not dietary fat, cause obesity?

    I think Charlie is right. Do the energy balance: In - Out - Consumption + Generation = Accumulation You have to account for the energy inputs from carbs, proteins, and fats. The energy out term should be negligible, and the body doesn't generate it's own energy so set those terms to zero...

    Orrin, Insulin spikes only when blood glucose levels get high. The insulin helps drop the blood glucose level back to normal. If the blood glucose levels get too low, then the pancreas counters by releasing glucagon, which will tend to raise the blood glucose back to normal levels. The insuline and...
  • Forum Post: Re: Carbs, not dietary fat, cause obesity?

    Jessica, While it's true the "In - Out" part is extremely important in determining the state of our body, and is probably the dominating factor, what you say is also true - it matters what you have to eat and it also matters what you do with your body. That's why, in my opinion,...
  • Forum Post: Re: Carbs, not dietary fat, cause obesity?

    Absolutely, Jessica. I try to think of it this way. Calorie consumption only tells you whether the change in mass will be positive or negative. The composition of the input, essentially whether it's carbs, protein, or fat, and the type of work done to burn it, will deterimine the type of weight gained...
  • Forum Post: Re: Nurtritional Requirements

    Yikes. If you read the original book by Bill Phillips, you'll find he discourages all that measuring effort. Fist-sized carbs, Palm-sized protein. That's easy to remember, and that's all you need to remember to get some rather amazing results on BFL. Jacium
  • Forum Post: Re: Nurtritional Requirements

    BDMom, I'm doing great, except for a mild shoulder impingement on the left side. I did my first 5K race over Labor Day, and although it stretched me, my time was under my original target by about 2 minutes... As I read the original BFL book a few nights ago, I found he revealed a lot of his...
  • Forum Post: Re: Question about bread?? and carb #'s

    Whole wheat bread contains complex carbs, and is the only bread I recall being OK to eat on BFL. I eat 2 slices a day, and periodically have a whole wheat English muffin, topped with almond butter. It provides natural fats and some protein in addition to the carbs. When comparing brands, I tend to look...
  • Forum Post: Re: Question about bread?? and carb #'s

    The overriding factor here is to take in quality carbs, which are complex carbs, and not the simple carbs that spike your glucose level. Whole wheat bread is on the authorized list (p. 88 of the book) which allows challengers to have a quality sandwich (like turkey with lettuce & tomato). That counts...

    Also, I can't emphasize enough how important it is to read the book to acquire all the understanding you can before starting a challenge. There is a lot of learning that goes on during a challenge, but IMHO folks could save countless hours spent on-line if they spent 3 hours reading the book. So...
  • Forum Post: Re: Hungry all of the time....

    r/d/Heart, Champster has a lot of comments you need to take into account. But beyond that, the key to feeling full is to be full of WATER or FIBER. I don't see nearly enough fiber in your diet. I downsize my meal portions 7 mos. before I even heard of BFL. To do this, I increased fiber by incorporating...
  • Forum Post: Re: Coffee! is anyone else having 1-2 cups per day?

    My recollection from the "Champion's Body for Life" text is coffee is, refined sugar and any cream or artificial creamer is out. The coffee can actually help speed up your metabolism, and I drink several cups of black coffee every day. Jacium
