Do some proteins blend better than others?
I tried to add protein to my coffee so that I could have the carrot cake muffins in the morning with my coffee and still meet my protein goal. But the protein powder I used wouldn't mix well with my coffee at all; it kept separating and getting chunky and was so bad I had to dump it. I've heard...

Is it okay to have low cal/low sodium popcorn for a snack? What about Natural peanut butter? What about anything I consider a non-threat to my progress that is not listed on the Authorized food list? i.e popcorn, peanut butter, hummus and roasted seaweed. I also stumbled across the Abbott Dark ZONE Perfect...

Pineapple and cottage cheese?
I've been reading about cottage cheese and berries being a great 6th meal. I live in India and it's not the best season to find berries here. Was wondering if I could have it with a drained slice of canned pineapple? any other suggestions?

I was on BFL for about 1.5 years and got pretty darn healthy. Fell off the plan when I quit tobacco and put some of the weight back on. Before, I always ate the same stuff from week to week. I always planned out my meals ahead of time, made a bunch of food on one day and froze it all for the rest of...

Question about Protein?
I am very new to the whole nutrition side of things and was wondering if adding in extra Protein like the BFL meal plans suggest will really help me starting out? You see I am about 5' 11" and weigh in at about 400 lbs, so I am starting with a lot of body fat as you can tell. So I guess my concern...

Hot Stuff Chili
I love spicy food so I am a huge fan of the hot stuff chili from EFL. Problem is I am living alone right now (Hubby in the Army) and I am eating all 8 servings by myself (usually as lunch and dinner for 4 days in a row). I worry that this is way to much beef to be eating during the week. I have been...

Do I really need to eat only egg whites? And other diet questions for a newbie
Since the egg yolks have 90% of the nutrition of the eggs (including all the Omega 3 fatty acids) and all of the flavor, do I really need to throw out the yolks when I eat eggs? I like to start the morning with 2 scrambled eggs mixed with some cooked spinach. Am I not going to see any progress just because...

What kinds of peanut butter do you eat? I had been using Trader Joe's Peanut Flour (low in calories, fat, and carbs, high in protein) and they stopped making it. Before that I used Better n' peanut butter (low sodium) - it has more carbs than protein... Any suggestions??
