How should a weight-lifting, running, vegetarian woman eat to have energy and life forever?

The more I work out, the more I realize that nutrition has a huge impact on my energy. When is the best time to eat various foods during the day so I have the most energy when I get to the gym at 5:30 p.m.? And how can I meet my nutritional needs, given that I'm a vegetarian who likes less-processed foods but doesn't have a lot of time for cooking (and can't handle eating beans every day)? I feel like I need a lot more protein all of a sudden. [more inside]

two part question: Can I ingest cellulace by eating assloads of termites or would my digestive system break it down into its base parts before it hits my blood stream? Second part - If i can get it into my body in a usable form, about how many would I have to eat before I could derive nutritional benefit from eating grass/paper/wood?

How useful is fat _really_?

Fat: Insulation, padding, and storage. But are there any drawbacks to having low bodyfat that I might encounter? I'm lowering bodyfat - currently in the realm of fitness but perhaps going to touch on the realm of vanity. There seem to be no drawbacks currently, any exceptions? How much would the benefit be and how much fat involved? Are there optimum amounts (such as a point beyond which increased fat doesn't increase how long you could survive without food)? To what extent (any?) could fat from previous rich eating help nutritionally balance an unbalanced diet later on? To what extent could it not? [more inside]

ISO noodles

Anyone in the D.C./northern Virginia area had luck finding stores selling the House Foods tofu shirataki noodles that blogs like Hungry Girl won't shut up about? I really don't want to resort to ordering them from Amazon.

What should I eat to obtain a flat stomach?

This is a tangent on the various posts asking about how getting a six-pack stomach. I'm 5'10' and 155 lbs and once and for all, I want to get rid of my slight beer gut and get a flat stomach (any pack would be a welcome bonus). I know that it's all about dieting/nutrition and exercising. I have the exercising thing down, but I have no clue about nutrition. Without giving me intake percentages or confusing me with omega fructose 3 fatty acid stuff, what should I eat to make my stomach flat? [more inside]

How can I learn how to plan meals?

I have a hard time preparing and eating three healthy meals a day. I 'm a great cook and I've taken college-level nutrition courses, but there's a big difference between knowing how to make one particular dish and being able to shop for, prepare and eat three meals a day, five or six days a week. I've tried many times to have a healthier diet. It's not that I crave fast-food or junk - I prefer foods that are good for me. But I just can't get to a point where I consistently eat good food on any sort of schedule. [mi] [more inside]

Mysterious hunger bouts

In relation to this fpp about food and mental health, I have recently been getting drastic bouts of hunger, confusion and depression when I eat late (even an hour later than usual), or don't eat enough at a meal. These bouts last about 3 hours, and once they start even stuffing myself won't help. Has anyone had this, know what it could be, or know how I could try to solve it? [more inside]

Why is Blackstrap Molasses so high in minerals?

Why is Blackstrap Molasses so high in minerals? Extended research (both internet and olde-fashioned) have failed to answer this question - I even emailed a molasses producer but didn't get a reply. One theory is that it has something to do with the equipment it's processed on, another that it has to do with how concentrated it is, but so far no hard facts.

difference between wheat and whole wheat

Lots of time when you read labels some of them say "whole wheat" or "wheat" or "white whole wheat." I read about it in a book about stone ground and steel ground, but was still confused. Can anyone explain the difference and also the difference in nutritional value?

Does cooking affect the nutritional value of vegetables?

I like to make stews with rice, lentils, potatoes, and lots of nutritious vegetables (e.g. cabbage, parsley, kale, broccoli, tomatoes, various greens, and so on); it occured to me recently that I might be inadvertently diminishing the benefits of these foods by cooking them for 3-5 hours. Could this be so?

Is Bigger Better?

In Korea, the thinking seems to be 'the bigger the piece of fruit or vegetable, the better'.

does the culture that makes sourdough sour have any nutrition benefits?

My favorite kind of bread is Sourdough (it's Californian, dude!), and I know I should be eating something more wholegrainhighfiberlowcarbwhatever. But I'm curious... if the cultures in yogurt are healthy for you, does the culture that makes sourdough sour have any nutrition benefits over plain white bread? And does Sourdough really take 2-3X as long to get stale and moldy than other bread, or that just me?

Or can anybody reccommend a best-tasing Whole Wheat Sourdough?
