    Is vegetable oil spread healthy or not?

    When I make Macaroni and Cheese (from a box), the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of butter or margarine. I've been using a half stick of the Imperial spread: ...

    I sure hope it's still has it's nutritional value! I just discovered it and started using it in the vegetable drink I make in a blender. I've heard that there's so much good in it that I wanted to...

    That's pretty much what I've been limiting myself to, just to be safe. I've been doing some reading.
    Here are the sources for what I've found:

    Here's the one that claims only 1 gram a day as...

    Cinnamon good for you?

    I've discovered that cinnamon is very high in antioxidants and is supposed to be very healthy. Doesn't cost much either. Just 95 cents for a small container at Aldi. But now I've been reading that...

    Do you throw away protein powder?

    I've been saving protein powder containers because they can be rather handy. I have ones I've used in the past, and I sometimes find containers out by the curb where people put them for recycling...

    Very interesting!
    I've been trying to cut back on processed stuff too. It seems unanimous that they're no good for us for a number of reasons.

    It's possible. Just eat a bulb of garlic along with a can of beans before going to the office.

    That certainly isn't working in my case. I'm 5' 6" and was around 145 lbs. when I got checked 3.5 years ago. Since then, I've actually lost 10 lbs. and my LDL and total C levels are up somewhat. ...

    Thank you, guys! This is the practical information I was looking for. I've been eating 2 a day, so I won't be concerned about it. My LDL levels were a little high (155), so I've been looking into...

    Thanks! This is good news for eggs, but puts everything I've heard and researched into question.
    Is there any source that tells us what's good or bad for us that isn't tainted by the pharmaceutical...

    Do you eat a lot of eggs?

    If you eat a lot of eggs, I'm curious to know if you've had blood work done and if your LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol were negatively affected. I was tested 3.5 years ago and my HDL was a...

    Ok, but I was just hoping maybe someone here has experienced something similar and could advise me on what it could be. Going to a doctor isn't always easy or cheap.

    Leg problem. Want to identify.

    I've been having a pain in the back of my left hip sometimes when I twist my body to the left, even in bed. I hadn't thought too much about it until a few days ago when I was doing squats. All I...

    Are toe raises worthwhile?

    At least I believe what I'm asking about are toe raises. At first, I thought they would be called reverse calf raises, but then found that to be something different. Then I looked up toe raises and...

    Thanks for letting me know this! I guess it's quite possible that the shoulder injury I suffered was caused by not doing the bench press correctly after all. I remember feeling some pain when I...

    Thank you!
    I guess my goal is more strength, but I'm not really seeing that. However, it sounds like I should keep the elbows tucked in to avoid injury, which is something I've experienced...
  • Can bench pressing with bad form be ok?

    I'm in the process of trying new things since I haven't made any gains in years. I've actually gone downhill since then. I've kept track of my progress and my records show that I do less now than...

    Shrugs or Deadlifts for traps?

    I have been doing Shrugs for my traps for quite awhile. But only for the past couple weeks have I been doing Deadlifts because I'm not sure I was doing them correctly and didn't want to injure...
