    GaryK asked the Question: HUNGER DILEMA: Is there a good late night snack?

    My work sometimes keeps me out for odd and long hours. I can not always prepare for this in advance. There are times I don't get home until close to 9 pm. I am, many times, famished when I get home. Is there a good and healthy snack I could eat at that late hour? If I go to bed hungry, I don't get a good nights sleep.

    Would it be smarter to do the Intelliburn for a week or two before starting another program?

    You might also try connecting directly through an ethernet cable (If you're close enough) Just to check if the problem persists. You might have your laptop in an area where the signal is weak.

    GaryK asked the Question: Working out - Outside

    I am currently away from home. Although grateful that DB comes with me. Until I get a car, I don't have a place big enough to do a good work out. I was considering outside It's a large patio, although the flooring is stone. Whats the risk of injury? And should I consider seeking an alternative?

    GaryK answered the Question: Is it normal to get headaches after working out?

    I'm not a doctor and this is something to address with yours. My 1st thought is you may be dehydrated. I suggest drinking H2O at least two glasses 15 minutes before the work out and having a bottle of water with you DURING the work out. When the trainers suggest grabbing some water... Do it! Than after the work out - RE-hydrate! Drink some more water.
    Consult your physician before doing any strenuous work out.

    I like to use them both. I like to track my eating habits. I know there are web sites and other apps like "Loseit" and "Gomeals" that track and I was using them for quite a while, but I like the trackers other benefits like the ability to add my recipes and see the nutritional values.

    GaryK answered the Question: I have been sedentary for years

    The most important things to remember for a good work out is MOBILITY, Training & RECOVERY - You will even hear the trainers mention this. Make sure you warm up with joint mobility before anything .. If this is all you can do for the work out in the beginning thats great. Because nothing breaks momentum quicker than injury. As you get more mobile your training will become easier, and don't forget recovery.. All combined and you will be doing 50 minute work outs before you remember you couldn't do 30 minutes.

    GaryK answered the Question: Stretching videos?

    Judi's supreme Stretch, and Cody's Mobility Yoga are great... Each of the workouts does a warm up ... Put them together and you can do them on your own. Just remember to go neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, chest, waist, hips, knees, ankles... Be safe if you need more info shoot me a note.

    Go to Traders Joe's (if you have one in your neighborhood) But look carefully at what you are buying. They do have some items that fit in with the DB plan (The coconut shrimp for example) However on the aforementioned item. They recommend 6 as a serving, The DB plan would suggest 3, add green vegetable and a brown rice (Rice can be prepared in advance and stored for three to five days MAX) Vegetables can be microwaved as well. Turkey Meatballs (Also 1/2 suggested serving)

    Instead of relying on the microwave however I would suggest looking at easier meals to prepare. Like The turkey club on the DB Nutrition site. Try Baby spring lettuce with Tuna fish, celery and cucumbers for a quick salad. If you have a toaster/oven, you can broil Salmon or snapper in 20 minutes

    GaryK asked the Question: Calories: Is under just as bad as over

    When trying to maintain an 1800 calorie plan. Is it detrimental to come in under the allotment consistently even though the meals are good meals?
    I have found that I have a healthy breakfast, a snack 2 to 3 hours later, 3 hrs later lunch, 2-3 hrs after that a snack and dinner at around 6PM, and consistently come in UNDER 1800 calories. I don't over portion my food, maybe I should up my portions on breakfast and lunch.
    Also please if anyone has suggestions for meals on the go... I would be open to hearing them.

    GaryK asked the Question: I can't believe I never asked this before...

    Just out of curiosity if one is on an 1800 calorie diet and a consistent work out plan, and goes over on the calories one day, does staying under the next balance out?
