Eggs are AWESOME. I could live off of eggs, cheese, beans and *hrrm* chocolate.

My fave egg recipe is an omelette, mix 3 or 4 whole eggs with chopped (frozen & thawed) spinach, salt & pepper, fry it up, put cheese and sliced tomato on top.

Heh I didn't even realize you might've been attacking them on semantic nit-picking grounds. Taking less space clearly seemed to be a reference to density to me, but ok... Uh, yeah I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to semantics... :red: especially in scientific contexts. Like when I read in the ...

It's a matter of density... like Wouter pointed out :smile:

Cliff, I'm sure you are correct in that assessment. I did meet some gals some years ago in Danmark that couldn't have cared less though. Your comment made me remember it. I was at the local gym in Viborg, Danmark, and we had some gals in from out of town for some type of track meet, and they came i...

They can hang out with a lot of in shape scantily clad men too. And if they would just not have the headphones on so much I could flirt better with them. Which adds to the reason why MANY women wont go near the free weight area. They don't want to be hit on, intimidated, or even watched by the guys...

You could copy some "figure athletes" photos from T-Nation and post them around the house with captions like "this is what women who lift weights end up looking like". What's that you say? Not a good idea? Well, it wouldn't work very well at my house either. Really? When you people post those kinds...

I would have liked to see more details on the composition of both diets, how much the low carb group increased their carbs during the last 21 (!) months of the study and what kind of fats were consumed. In the low fat group I'd like to see more details on what types of food they ate in general. Like...

This is hilarious. Ok there is some good advice in there, but the way they wrote it is just messed up: "It also builds muscle, which takes up less space than fat." Muscle takes up less space than fat! Hahahaha! And cotton weighs less than lead... :green: I also like the one example of fibrous foods...

Ah, well this is Sweden. 25 days vacation per year (it's your right by law), and out of those you have a right to have 3 weeks consecutively sometime in June, July or August.

Funky Cold Medina just came on my Spotify. It's like it's 1990 again. Haha. Isn't it Tone-Loc who's rapping outside Ford Fairlane's office in the movie? Classic.
