I've always loved cardio but  in the past few months I have put a lot of focus on weights and body building.  I wish I had discovered my love for it ten years ago!!!  Just putting it out there and wondering if anyone else is building their bodies. 


also I am more interested in health discussions with people who are not fad dieting, and wondering what is working for you and building your fabulous muscles!!!!  I was in the poor house for a couple of months here and ate a TON of hard boiled eggs.  Since I gave up gluten due to extreme food allergies two months ago, my body has transformed itself into something that looks much younger and brighter than I ever could have dreamed.  Times are better and I can buy some supplements now;  what kinds are you using and why?

We only use probiotics and fish oil. Probiotics for better gut health and the fish oil because I believe that humans were mrant to eat fresh fish fairly frequently. Congrats on your new found health!

I drink allot of green smoothies (kale, banana, spirulina or whey or glutamate, etc) and juice.  I wouldn't say i was into body building, however i do want to look toned and not flabby.  I also try and eat plenty of raw foods.  My hubby is the vitamin and supplement guru, so i pretty much take what he buys or suggest i take.  He has about a $300 a month vitamin and supplement habit.  LOL

I'm doing a hybrid program with TurboFire (cardio) and ChaLEAN Extreme (heavy weights). I love strength training! I take a probiotic and prenatal vitamin. That's it for now because I'm breastfeeding.
