    GaryK answered the Question: Which muscles?

    Yes, I agree I would like the option to see upper body or lower body work outs as well.

    I had the same issue what worked for me depended on the work out. For the work outs like the "Box & Burn" I had an old office mat (You know the plastic mats that go under office chairs so they can roll on carpet) It worked like a charm. I now keep that handy by my work out space. Other than that I have done the Tabata and similar work outs with bare feet or my cross trainers (Adidas Climacools) and I've been very happy. Obviously anything that requires weights I feel more comfortable in work out shoes.

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

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

    INFERNO WAS AWESOME! I want to do it again!! It got me through a clump of birthdays, the holidays and new years guilt free!
    I didn't think of the Yoga series. That's brilliant. I know Cody, and I know flexibility is going to be primary with Tabata. Thank you.

    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.

    I am looking for other people in the area who would want to work out together on a group. I have a club house available and possibly space at an LA Fitness

    If you need sweeteners, Stay with natural sweeteners in moderation. Stevia isn't bad, RAW agave is low on the glycemic scale and won't spike your blood sugar. All things in moderation will satisfy your needs.
    I'm not a doctor but I played one, once. In my opinion, If it's artificial, it's not going to be beneficial to your health. Stay with natural, eat healthy, balanced meals, work out and maintain.

    I have a different experience with Aspartame.
    Aspartame or NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure. Was discovered by accident in 1965 when James Schlatter, a chemist of G.D. Searle Company, was testing an anti-ulcer drug.
    Aspartame was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was originally approved for dry goods on July 26, 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr John W. Olney and Consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974 as well as investigations of G.D. Searle's research practices caused the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval of aspartame on hold (December 5, 1974). In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries.
    Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include: Headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain.
    According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame: Brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, parkinson's disease, alzheimer's, mental retardation, lymphoma, birth defects, fibromyalgia, and diabetes.
    Aspartame is made up of three chemicals: aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol. The book "Prescription for Nutritional Healing," by James and Phyllis Balch, lists aspartame under the category of "chemical poison."

    GaryK asked the Question: iPhone Calorie counter controversy??

    I just did the Tabata work out on my iPhone. At the end of the work out the calorie counter stated 203 calories burned. I logged in again and there was a screen that said I burned 449 calories for the day... Anyone else find this?

    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.
