 juicing.. only if you want all the sugar but no fibers!
  • 27 1
 Yeah I never understood juicing... just eat the fruit and veg. Get all the nutrients and the fibre, digested slightly slower and feel more full to stave off snack cravings.
  • 10 5
 @robwhynot: Lack of knowledge and wanting sweet things to be healthier than they are. Blending fruits/veggies is the way to go if people want liquid health.

 True, I use a Vitamix and blend just enough to make it it drinkable but with enough solid fiber to ensure good bowel movements.

 Juicing is a 15-30% more efficient way of accomplishing my life goal of acquiring diabetes.

 I juiced for a while. It's addicting because you are getting pure sugars. Made me feel high and shaky. Had to quit.
  • 10 3
 Plenty of fibre, SOLUBLE fibre, and you try eating half a dozen carrots, some beets, four apples, two cucumbers, four sticks of celery, two lemons and a chunk of ginger in a day....

 I'm terrible and find it hard to snack on veg...and fruit actually. I also struggle to eat before noon, fun fact. This way I get something good in my body and if I'm super keen...I'll use the pulp/fiber to make muffins and breads sometimes. But I would love a high end blender one day that wastes nothing :-)

 @jettj45: do you recommend a specific blender? I have the small Ninja one now and it's not very strong for hard veggies. If I don't have juice, then I definitely have a smoothie a day.

 juicing is fine, as long as u don't just use sugary fruit. carrots, cucumber, celery, ginger, beet, etc, should make up the majority of what one puts in a juicer.

 @christinachappetta: The Nutri Ninja Auto-IQ blender is pretty decent for blending. It's 1000 watts and the program cycle means you don't have to babysit it. Not a bank-breaker like a Vitamix or Blendtec. CT or BestBuy usually have good deals on them.

 @robwhynot: So true ! Fun fact :energetic value for 100 g of coke or apple juice is the same. And of course all the blender sellers want you to believe that lots of fibers and nutrientss are included in the juice but this is just not true:

Sorry it's a french article but google translate is your friend.
The thing is, you like juice, go for it, but don't try to bullshit us with healthy mumbo jumbo!
  • 1 0
 It's just not natural with juice. Fruit is better when eaten slowly in combination with something else to complete it. I always eat an apple a day, slice it up and dip in peanut butter. Very underrated as snack or small meal depending on the amount of peanut butter Smile The only thing I drink besides water is a green smoothie, also every day. Works wonders. Many people don't believe that food can make you both sick and healthy. Choose the right for you because your body doesn't lie to you.

 @DirtbagMatt: high power blenders 'pulverize' the fiber so is not fiber anymore, and then it doesn't do it's job of coating the intestine and slow down sugar absorption.

 @christinachappetta: I just use a nutribullet right now, I don't have any issues with what I blend and get 3-5x the RDA for all my micronutrients daily. You can always use a peeler or grader on vegetables that are too hard on your blender before you put them in.
  • 1 0
 @jettj45: my point exactly! the juice should be mostly veggies. but avocado, to answer ur question.
  • 1 0
 @savagelake: Which doesn't remedy the fact that up to 90% of fiber is removed during the juicing process, depending on the juicer. Some soluble fiber will remain, but the majority of insoluble fiber is removed. Both are integral in metabolic processes and digestion. Unless of course you're adding all the pulp back in which is rather difficult with most juicers. This why blending or eating whole fruit/vegetables is much better.

 Seems like a bunch of people.
CT is mostly open, but I'm getting emails from VMBA that many chapters trails in VT are closed and they affirmed they had the right to do it to trails on public land. Not sure about Mass. Does the CDC still recommend I not leave the tri-state area yet? Is RI still turning cars away from the border?

Haven't been more than 20 miles from the house in a couple months, so can only speak to my area, but damn I'm grateful to be allowed in the woods.

 The trails are just opening up in Whistler so I am being relieved. It's been 7-8 weeks since I've left Whistler and ridden other trails. It's not that they aren't open, it's that they're not in my local community so staying close to home has been very important.

 @nvranka: SoCal has been spotty even before Covid19. Since all San Diego trails are deemed illegal. Police would car camp and issue you a $75 ticket. well now it can be a $1075 ticket.

I'll just wait for summit and Mammoth to open. Last year we only had 1.5 months of riding at mammoth (full park open). I can't even drive passed Esco without the cops asking "where are you headed?" Which sucks because all my riding friends live in Highland.

 @Happypanda1337: SD has it particularly bad, wouldn't say that's a "socal" thing. OC has such a wide variety of great trails, most sanctioned, but many not...i've never gotten a ticket in 12yrs of 3+days a week.

One area that is notorious for tickets is north side of laguna canyon, art school / big waimea etc...that said, i shuttle the south side telonics/pg's/silver surfer sometimes 3 days a week and never have an issue.

 So can anyone actually cite a resource that says we're not allowed to travel between communities? Like even so much as an advisory? Because I can't www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19

I very much understand the idea that if we can keep everyone in a community contained that the virus will eventually go away one community at a time. For that to work the government would have to impose strict travel restrictions with a clear plan to start contact tracing once cases fall below a certain level. There is no plan to do any of this! Just found out today that the farm workers who come to BC from Quebec will not have to undergo any quarantine period since it's not international travel. Apparently the virus checks for passports now.

The government has no plan on eliminating this virus and it is just about guaranteed to still be around next winter during flu season. So basically go wherever you want and do your best to stay 6 feet away from people you don't know.

 @RoadStain: you'll kindly note that my comment in no way says that the virus isn't serious or that we shouldn't be taking steps to reduce outbreaks. It's pretty clear how fast this can spread (meat packing plants have been hard hit) and how high the death toll is.

What we should do is use common sense. The government both in Canada and the USA has not taken any steps to achieve containment. The strategy at this point appears to be mitigation although they've been quite vague on this. Assuming mitigation is the strategy then large groups of people are obviously bad, but doing a day trip to a neighbouring community has no effect on the current strategy that is in place.

 @makripper: noo, man I wish you could switch down/up votes. Down voted your previous comment by accident lol.

Exactly. The problem is they have no plan so how long can you really shut down huge sections of the economy without an end game?

The only other option is to go full police state with curfews and mandatory stay in place. Covid19 simply isn't deadly enough to get public support for that kind of action.

This says to #staythef*ckhome

Actually, it does, sorry to be so blunt. That means to me to not drive to your neighbouring hill. I live between Seymour and Fromme and have not ridden either, only on the valley trails between the two. Certainly not hopping in a car to Squampton.

 @heckler73: stay at home is only written in the top right corner. Furthermore it specifically says "how you can SLOW the spread". As of right now they have absolutely no plan to prevent the spread.

Stay at home is not included in the plan if you read the document, only social distancing. The reality is that as of right now the government does not expect to be able to eliminate the virus and that it will continue to spread within communities.

So I'll ask, if the virus is not going away and every community has it what difference does it make if we travel between communities? Remember this logic is predicated on the fact that there is currently no plan at all to eliminate this virus by containment, only to mitigate how quickly it spreads through social distancing.

What difference does it make if we travel between countries? I was in northern Italy in Jan - Feb. I have not ever felt less than normal and pedalled a 500 km NZ bikepacking trip in March.

 @friendlyfoe: Exactly. Stunning, look for something and find it. 98%+ "with it" never show a single symptom....our economic situation is far more valuable than that 2% with symptoms, from there 98%+ recover....simply, Darwin wins.
  • 5 1
 @RoadStain: literally no one is saying that. By your math that means you believe 48 million people in the USA have already contracted it but had no symptoms. I'm not sure how you make this stuff up. The death toll in the USA if allowed to spread through the population would be roughly 650 million as compared to the 50 million from a typical flu virus. We have collectively decided that is not okay regardless of how you feel.

@heckler73: I completely agree that it's serious enough that it couldn't be allowed to run through the population all at once. Let's just look at the situation logically though and limit the discussion to BC to reduce variables. So we make the decision not to let it run through the population (mitigation). We stopped international travel and eliminated large gatherings of any kind. This is great, it reduced peak levels and stopped our health care system from being overwhelmed.

Now we've hit a point where new cases are roughly between 20-50 cases a day. This is the amount of transmission you would see purely from people doing necessary things like grocery shopping. The government has no plan in place to reduce transmission below these levels.

Lets say I have Covid and am not showing symptoms yet. If every community has it (that is the important part, if areas were unaffected it would be completely different) and we're still allowed to be outdoors on our own or in small groups, what difference does it make if I pass the virus on to someone in my own community versus in another?

The point I am making is the exact same one doctors were making as soon as it became clear the virus was spreading in North America. Once it's here trying to keep it out is pointless. The only thing we can do is mitigate how quickly it spreads. Trust me the second the government has a plan to eliminate Covid on a community by community basis it will have my full support regardless of how extreme it is, but until then go out and ride your bike!

 I know I’m late to the party, my opinion is probably unpopular, and anyone left is busy arguing about covid but I’d still like to point out that anyone with a road bike can ride just fine. Hell, throw semi slicks on your MTB and hit the pavement. This is a great time to get outside and work on fitness, but if your town is anything like Seattle stay the hell away from bike paths right now.

 @ashlemon: Thank you for posting actual relevant information. First of all let me say that no one sensible would argue with the fact that the number of cases is significantly higher than reported. Lots of people have gotten flu like symptoms and just stayed home.

If you correlate their data to the national data then its more like 50 million actual cases and 56,000 deaths, all of which I'm happy to accept. So the original data of it being 10x more lethal than the flu simply isn't accurate. Trust me I'm happy to hear that.

BUT there is still one problem. Flu season is calculated from October 1 through April 4 and typically about 50 million people on average get the flu. The 50 million people who've gotten Covid has happened in a month and the rate of transmission was accelerating.

So even if we say that only people who would get the flu will die from Covid, that means you would be dealing with a full flu season's worth of deaths every month for the next 6 months. Even if it slows right down during the summer you still get back to those numbers as soon as things cool off.

That seems like a problem that needs dealing with. I really appreciate you sharing that study though.
***the number I used are based off US statistics www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html

 Obviously the second last paragraph should be edited to say that "only people who would die from the flu will die from covid.

It also means @RoadStain was right. Any chance that what you'll take away from this is that constructive conversation is more productive than going out of your way to be antagonistic?

Big assumptions there, where are your documents backing that up? Anything put out by the CDC is highly suspect, as it has proven to be nothing more than a lobby and advocacy group dedicated to enriching the pharmaceutical industry. There is abundant evidence that many of the deaths attributed to the crony virus have in fact died of other causes, and in fact there is financial incentive for hospitals to play these games with death certificates.

This virus is obviously being used to achieve political and societal change desired by an extra-governmental global power structure. The level of fear they have been able to generate over essentially nothing speaks volumes about the state of consciousness of the average citizen of the western world.
  • 2 3
 @ashlemon: While I agree with a majority of your argument, hospitals can provide a death certificate, they can NOT provide a cause of death. That is done by a (generally) elected official and their staff at the Coroners Office. Even in the modern times of COVID the wishes of a family based on faith are supported. No autopsies for a number of faiths, immediate burial for others - they are not kept aside in special circumstances where TB and things such as radiation poisoning are suspected.

A medical facility in the US (hospital, SNIF or LTCC) has absolutely no reason at all to claim COVID is a cause of death over any other illness (COPD for instance). That said, the many reports of PE or VFIB "only happening because of COVID" is a typical elected Coroners ploy to get more money for a local Government, the medical facilities will not see a dime of that.

 The amount of fibre in the juice also varies by the type of juicer used(how it extracts the juice).

Saying that drinking home made juice is a recipe for diabetes does not take into consideration whether that juice was a substitute for another drink(other than water). If that juice is replacing a monster energy drink, a beer, a fluffy coffee drink etc... I would think that the home made juice is the better option.

 @christinachappetta: Ab rollouts are very hard, so people think they must be good for you. Enormous pressure on the lower back. From the knees would be the limit with good technique.

 How would you herniate your disc from crunches? Unless you are doing crunches in the squat rack and some power lifter picks you up and throws you through the whole gym.

 Waking, I don't know if you are trolling, but... Sweden: 10 million people, over 2000 Covid deaths. Australia: 23 million people, 84 Covid deaths. And I rode every day for the past three days.

 @iamamodel: yeah maybe like in Poland, people don’t die from Covid, they die from respiratory failure and pneumonia. Poland also has very few cases, Bulgaria almost none.

 @dirtyburger - I took it this way. I expected no less. I don't want to sound like an alarmist, but the sht storm of incredible proportions is coming. Bragging, blaming.

Yeah @iamamodel - we are not "safe", YTou may die of Covid by coming to Sweden and walking on the streets... I wanted to kill Christina, that was the plan.

Australia is safe. Said nobody. Snakes, spiders, crocodiles, stingers, giant sharks, poisonous trees, box jelly fish, stone fish - that's what is waiting for people if they even manage to get in there. Helps not being Chinese. Crikey! he had an unreported raisin in his pocket! - Officer! this man is a threat to Australian live stock - Browner! Quick! bring the vegemite cannon! We need to quarantine him under a layer of vegemite! - Officer! Dingo stole your cannon! - Damn it Browner! I'll use me 'noif! - this is not a 'noif Sir! - I should be so lucky lucky lucky lucky! - What is that browner?! - me ringphone. It's my girlfriend's, she was supposed to tell me what about her student Visa. It's been declined... - take it later! What a mess browner... let's eat that Raisin and tell him to wash his pants. He's going back to his home country tomorrow. Let's relax, After work I'll buy you a beer and we'll have a barbie. -but what about your daughter Sir? You're picking her up from school after work on Fridays- Easy, she's with her class, went to have a picnic under some bloody rock, they have tents, won't be back before tomorrow or maybe even longer.

Greetings from Sweden
