Question Of The Week

Your Favorite Healthy Treat Foods?

Eating healthy can be a real drag. Everyone comes across the time when they just want to ditch the diet and eat whatever they want. More often than not, all it takes is finding a healthy treat/snack to get your mind off of the pain that eating healthy can really be.

Nutrition Thread Of The Week

Oats...

For those of you that know anything about bulking, you'll know that oats are a great source of calorie dense carbohydrates. Also, there are a lot of weight gainers out there but we know that the contents are exactly the best for gaining weight without the fat. So, how can we throw together a good weight gainer with oats?

Oats: Love That Texture!

Personally, throwing oats directly into a protein shake isn't too appetizing, considering the size and texture of oats. Is there an easier way to make an oat-based weight gainer without having to swallow whole oats? Ladies and gentlemen, there is a way. Check out this thread, started by 'afcop' and find out how.

Argument Of The Week

Glycerol Monostearate: The Truth!

As you may or may not know, Controlled Labs is introducing a new cell volumizing product called 'GlycerGrow'. There are, however, some things about the new product that not everyone is agreeing on. A certain member, 'rockingym', claims that the key ingredient in GlycerGrow is a sham and does not do what Controlled Labs claims it does.
