Yet another marijuana question.

I like smoking pot, and it's often very useful when I'm working, in that it helps me to focus and brainstorm and problem-solve. But I recently cut it out of my daily routine, and for the most part I'm happy to be without it right now...but I do wish to have a little puff once a week. I miss the brainstorms! The problem is, now every time I do smoke, the whole next day I feel way unmotivated and unfocused. Someone suggested more-rigorous exercise the next morning might help, because it burns off the fat that total crap? Help me keep the brainstorms without losing my luster the next day! [more inside]

Working out while using the internet?

Has anyone here had any success working out while using the internet? I'm thinking about buying a recumbent exercise bike that would allow me to prop up my laptop in front so I can pedal and read at the same time, but I'm wondering how practical this idea really is. Anyone tried it?

How do I handle this is a constructive manner? [more inside]

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]
