    In addition. I'm an avid runner, so these videos are just part of cross training along with swimming, biking and my own occasional lifting workout at my work gym.
    This site has been great though - I love the recovery videos, and the workout variations have helped give my running a huge boost.

    seeEricaRun answered the Question: Is eating three meals a day ok?

    You can only do what you can do. As far as I understand it, the 4-6 meal rule is just to keep you from being hungry and eating too much during meals. If that's not your problem, then I don't see why you shouldn't stick with three.

    Here's a good article: http://www.webmd.com/diet/fea...
    Quote: "A review in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded there was no real weight loss advantage to eating six meals a day. Another study, in the British Journal of Nutrition, found no weight loss difference between dieters who ate their calories in three meals daily or six meals a day."

    Honestly, my favorite is your basic olive oil and balsamic vinegar. However, my husband makes a great, more complicated dressing that involves garlic and anchovies (caveat: it doesn't taste fishy, and you would never know there were anchovies in it unless someone told you. I know this because I hate anchovies.) I can get his recipe if you are interested.

    No, but there is a pretty good archive here: http://dailyburn.com/communit...

    And if you fiddle with the answers to your questionnaire you will get a new set of workouts.

    There's a lot of them in addition to the DB tracker. To name a few: Livestrong MyPlate, Sparkpeople, Fitday, Calorie King. Even the USDA has one, though I can't remember what it's call. They all work a little bit differently, so I've bounced around between quite a few of them over the years.

    I don't know about nutritional supplements - I'm a big believer in food over supplements, but I can tell you that vitamin B12 is only naturally present in sufficient quantities dairy and meat products. So you may want to ensure that any supplement includes this vitamin.
    Fortunately, your liver can store B12 for years, but anyone on a vegan diet will eventually develop a deficiency. The most common signs of B12 deficiency are anemia (fatigue, shortness of breath, rapid muscle tiring) and nerve degeneration (a wide variety of symptoms including dementia, decreased deep tendon reflexes, tingling in the hands and feet, difficulty with balance, etc).
    All the over the counter forms of B12 that sold in the US are all vegan as they are produced from bacterial sources.
    I know off-hand that nutritional yeast is frequently supplemented with B12, but other vegan food products may be as well.

    As an aside, I have a kickass recipe for vegan "queso" made with nutritional yeast if you are ever interested.

    I asked the same question on Facebook. The answer from DB was "Great idea!" I assume this means that there is no plan.

    Stone ground oatmeal comes to mind. You can make a bunch of it at once, portion it out, fridge it and reheat as needed. I think it tastes a ton better than the mushy stuff. Just add some sliced bananas, raisins, cinnamon, milk, apple - whatever floats your boat.

    I also like tofu scramble which reheats really well (much better than an egg version would). There are recipes for various versions all over the web. It also is a great way to use up the veggies hanging out in the fridge. I like to top it with avocado, pico de gallo or sour cream. If you toss it in a warmed whole wheat tortilla, you have breakfast you can eat on the go.

    seeEricaRun answered the Question: How often are new videos added?

    Thank you!

    And yes, I adjust my questionnaire pretty frequently since I don't approach every workout with the same goal.

    seeEricaRun asked the Question: How often are new videos added?

    Is the number of videos in DB static? Are more being continually made? Are there plans to make more? It seems like I get a LOT of repeats at this point, and I'd love to see some new ones come up in the rotation, or more advanced ones.
