  • Rate my 'Healthy' Dinner for weight loss!?

    I am a male, 5'8, about 160~ pounds in my early 20's

    2 Hummus chicken veggie burritos and baby beets...now to the details.

    2 Whole Grain Tortillas rolled with Oat and Flax Seed-240 calories

    4 Tablespoons White bean and basil Humus- 120 calories

    4-6 ounces of skinless boneless chicken breast- 120-180~ Calories

    10 cherry tomatoes- ~31 calories

    About a cup...maybe 2 of spinach with Chili flakes - ~20-40 calories

    Some lettuce- varied calories, but very likely low.

    A side plate of baby beets - 100 calories

    Of course, glasses of Water - 0 Calories :D

    Total Calories- no more than 740 calories max every dinner.

    Notes: This is by far the largest meal of my day (nothing else breaks 400), and I burn 400-450 calories through exercise every day.

    Big Question: Is this a good dinner for losing weight and staying healthy while doing so?

  • I eat about 1000 calories a day, burn 700-800~ through cardio, stuck at 5'7 161 lbs for 2 weeks?

    Ok, I have 2 eggs and a mandarin orange for breakfast

    a protein shake for lunch

    A turkey sandwich with tomato and mustard on wheat bread for dinner

    I only drink water.

    Calorie counting shows this as being 170 cal breakfast, 170 cal lunch, 400~ cal dinner.

    I use a treadmill for cardio and run/walk/jog about 5 miles a day, usually around 5.5 on it, which totals to somewhere between 700-800 calories burned according to the treadmill (I use the incline between 4-7%). I do this 5-6 times a week.

    I do have a cheat day on sundays, wherein I order something like Lasagna/Pasta (individual portion) and garlic bread from a restaurant. Even if that total caloric content was 3000 calories (and I seriously doubt it is) I should be losing weight from the massive caloric deficit I had the rest of the week, but i've been stuck on low 160's for 2 weeks now!

    Oh yeah, I also do some mild weight lifting, nothing big but enough that I hope im maintaining muscle mass to an extent. Im still able to lift the same amount I lifted 50 pounds ago (I lost alot of weight, about 90 pounds so far) with no lapse in reps (4 sets of 12 reps).

    I mean come on I should be below 160 at least! My body can't possibly produce calories from nothing! Advice?

  • very noticeable puffy red spot on my foot?

    I just restarted doing cardio and was working out on the treadmill, pushing myself pretty hard, my feet were kinda sore from the day before but at the end of this I was just on pins and needles.

    I was wearing running shoes that didn't provide enough support (im getting a new pair).

    its nighttime of the same day and I just noticed this really puffy red spot on the left side of my left foot (slightly to the left of my smallest toe)

    I actually just now felt my foot and notice a smaller very dark (almost black) puffy spot slightly to the left and near the heel of my foot (left side of my left foot).

    Are these workout related and when can I expect them to go away if they are?

  • Desmonds Journey in Assassins Creed: Revelations unlocked from the start? Should I play it first.?

    As above I got the AC summer sale pack with all the games and dlc, I've just started AC revelations and happened upon these. A quick search seems to indicate that it shouldn't be open from the start, so I guess my question is is it alright to play them first or would it be a spoiler?

    I havnt played any of AC revelations, so no spoilers please!

  • How is it that US-Vietnamese relations have improved so much?

    It amazes me considering how relations were a scant 30-40 years ago.

    In fact it seems to me the US has always enjoyed vastly more success with diplomacy in Asia than in the Middle-East... why is that?

  • What is the occupy wall street movement looking for concretely?

    Basically what is their goal? No not some nebulous get wall street out of Washington motto. What do they want to see passed? What does the group (or group's organizers) want changed? What laws do they want repealed/reenacted, what concrete things do they want done to fix the economy, do they want a violent change in government believing democratic methods to have failed?

    Or is the movement more an expression of mass frustration more than a group with concrete ideas to fix their frustrations?

    If you say both please list their concrete ideas, or a site where I can find their concrete ideas.

  • Would video games have been invented outside of the US?

    Inventions such as the light bulb, telephone, and airplane could easily have been invented elsewhere considering the people working on them at the time, is this also so with video games?

  • Electric power for an electric car in the Los Angeles area.?

    This is a long shot question but here it goes.

    Getting away from price for the moment, lets say I bought an electric car in Los Angeles, and I was able to find/use electric outlets around the area. Where would the power in these outlets be coming from (Los Angeles power specifically). Would it come from a hydroelectric plant, a coal plant, or something else?

    Seeing as the main selling point of an electric car is being environmentally friendly/ more friendly than gas cars, I'd appreciate if someone could tell me (Or show me the resources to find out myself) where power in the Los Angeles area comes from specifically (though more narrowly I'd like to know where the power in electric vehicle rechargers comes from in the Los Angeles area).

    If the power comes from multiple sources just a mention of whether these sources are coal, hydro, or both would be nice.

  • Should I buy Dungeon Keeper 2 or would it really show its age?

    I've heard its a really good game, but it was made back in 1999. Graphics aren't all I judge a game by, but I feel a certain standard is needed for an enjoyable experience, and that standard has certainly risen from 1999 to 2011. I'm also concerned about how it would perform on windows 7.

    Anyways would it still be worth a buy, or should I keep looking?
