  1. Thank you for your response. Only light weights though right? If I go heavy, i'm assuming that's when I might bulk?
  2. I have slightly chunky arms and very large trap muscles (not by choice - I hate them). I'm nervous doing a lot of upper body workouts in case I make them bigger and not slimmer. Any recommendations to slim out the arms but with no chance of making my traps bigger?
  3. I worry about this too. Mostly for my calves. I'm nervous working them out in fear that they will get bigger with muscle. What's the best way to slim down these area's without bulking them?
  4. Heel pain is a very common symptom of plantar fasciitis. This can happen even by simply stepping on a curb the wrong way, so may not have anything to do with your footwear. I got it by walking on the beach barefoot one day. Start icing it down, especially after a run.
  5. I'm just starting up the paleo diet again. I've done this in the past and have lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks. When I do this I eat a lot of veggies and meat. I always find I have a tonne more energy when I remove grain from my diet.
  6. I definitely can't do any exercising until a good 2-3 hours after I eat. My stomach upsets very easily.
  7. I recommend spotify as well. It's a great app!
  8. Hi KellyAnn, thanks for responding I like squeezing lemon into my water, but I won't put a wedge in it (don't want the chemicals from the peel in my water). I also do this with grapefruit. Drink vinegar?? eeeeee I don't know if I could do it. I will sometimes put a tiny amount of apple cider vinegar in my water, but just a very little. I was mentioning this to a woman at work yesterday, and she said her naturopath just got her on a bunch of minerals and she said it has already made a huge difference (only after 2 days) with her energy levels. Hmmmm. It's in liquid form which she said she does add to her water. I haven't gotten more details as to what minerals they are, but i will.
  9. I posted a link awhile back on the products I used to treat my foot...but don't remember the thread. I'm always a little nervous of posting links, but I really do want the world to know, as it got me back walking without a limp. Here's info about metatarsalgia and what I used: http://kingbrand.com/Metatarsalgia-Treatment.php?REF=46PV179.254 It took me a month and half and it's never come back I used the ColdCure Foot wrap and BFST Wrist wrap (easier to wrap around that area of foot), and I taped it for 2-3 weeks. Wishing you all the best!
  10. Is it painful as well after your run? or just tight? Tightness and stiffness usually mean a lack of blood flow to the area and pain usually indicates inflammation. Most of the time the two go hand in hand. When an area becomes inflamed, a lot of the blood flow to the area is hindered. Ice after your run to make sure your body can supply the necessary blood flow it needs to heal.
  11. Good to hear All the best going forward.
  12. I've done strict low carb diets in the past and do try to live by it everyday. When doing it strict, i've lost 7lbs in a week. I bloat very easily and very badly with grains and typically with just heavy carbs in general so I find reducing the amount very beneficial for me. The only thing I struggle with when strictly doing no carbs, is my lack of energy. Any advice to balance that out?
  13. On the topic of water consumption....i've just heard recently that if you aren't adding in the right minerals then our system just flushes it out (as oppose to keeping any to nourish our body). He said that if you pee a lot you are just defeating the purpose. What do you guys think? I always seen water consumption as a detox/flush so this made sense to me.....but now i'm thinking about minerals. Any thoughts on this? I know nothing about minerals.
