Dawson - I went to Bulk Barn after speaking with you during Friday's WOD & picked up some walnuts. Such a simple change made a world of difference :) Thanks for taking the time & great suggestion - much appreciated!

You are welcome. Definitely try an assortment of nuts (i.e. almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, peanuts, pecans). Limit your servings to 1 ounce per meal/snack. Over indulgence will make a person put on weight. Each nut provides its own unique nutrient/benefit as well as being plentiful in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. However, moderate intake of peanuts is key. Not only do they contain beneficial qualities, there are also some negative effects they exert. But the pros far outweigh the cons. I did some research on peanuts back in June and posted what I found on my blog (http://dawson-3-2-1-go.blogspot.com) dated July 3. I will be doing similar things with other nuts.

Great work by everyone at the 0800 class!!! Some PR's were lifted. Most notably "Mr. Photoshop" or "Sh!t Disturber" Perry Walker. He made a whopping 20-lb jump in his deadlift. Friggin awesome!!! Not bad for someone with a petite frame. Hahaha.

Perry said...

You're gonna have a nice ringin' in your ears and see little white birdies circling your cranium!!

I heard that guys with your kind of frame enjoy the lighter things in life like birds and the colour white.

I can't think of a good come back right now...you've won this round!
