    Ben2TheMax replied to Matias Miranda's question:

    About burger patties

    I think the consensus would be to know exactly where the meat comes from and what’s been added to it, yeah? Obviously if you’re working at a place with lean grass fed beef, then you&#...

    You're braver than me, mate. I don't work out, so I try to stick to the slow carbs rather than any other carbs whenever possible. And I don't go ...

    +1 for Grace. I would say if you could use almond butter or maybe a few raw ones, it may be a better choice. Lately, for my random cravings I've ...

    Breakfast Time

    Hey Raj, Most people will say that run it as an experiment and see how it goes… If you can try a quick egg white/black beans/spinach in a microwave bowl for five minutes within 30 mins o...

    Pu-erh tea

    Hey SCDs, I’ve been on the SCD for over two years and have lost over 80lbs from 252lbs to 170lbs. It’s become a lifestyle for me even through a huge transition from the Cayman Islan...

    Very interesting article re: gluten & wheat

    Hey all, As an almost year long 4HBer, I've been astounded at how hard it was to wean myself off grains. I stuck to it and have lost nearly 60lbs since January. As we head into the holiday seas...

    How to be happy w/ this?

    Kettlebell Alternatives

    Just to make you all feel a little better, in Cayman, a 5lb kettleball at a sports store to remain nameless is CI$55. Which is around US$80! A 35lb plate at same store is over CI$110!
