comment Are protein and fiber obtained from “shakes” used by the body as effectively as if they were obtained from unprocessed foods?
Good answer, thanks. But do you have any references, by chance? It's hard to find authoritative answers in a field where everyone seems to be saying something different.

comment How much should I spend for olympic weights?
FWIW I bought this set from Sears and have been really happy with it: link. I agree with others that there's no reason to avoid used weights, but these new ones seemed to be about the same price. Pretty decent quality. But the bar only weighs 32 lbs, if that matters to you.

comment Weight is higher in the Evening than the Morning?
Because of what Greg says here, I always weigh myself in the morning before I step into the shower. I figure it'll give me the most consistent results. Weighing myself in the evening seems to cause a lot more variation depending on what I've eaten/done that day.

comment Can I do “Couch to 5k” twice per week instead of 3 times?
@Ryan Miller - For weight training I'm aiming for 270 lbs squat, 300 lbs deadlift, 200 lbs bench press, 180 lbs barbell row, 120 lbs overhead press for 5 sets of 5 reps each. Timeframe: by the end of the year. I re-started Stronglifts on Feb 1 and have made good progress. Just squatted 227 lbs for 5x5 yesterday.

@Ryan Miller Um... Day 4. :-P Yeah, not far. I used to be able to run pretty far but I was pretty sedentary over the winter due to illness and other factors, so I recently started from the beginning. I'd say my two-fold goal is to be able to run 1 mile in 8 minutes, and also to be able to run 3 miles (about 5k) in 30 minutes, not during the same session.

Accepted for now. But if anyone finds this question later and addresses the points in my edit above, I'd still appreciate it! Thanks.

Good answer, thanks. One question though - you said "I lost around 85 pounds of fat, and I can say that I get really cold in the winter". How did you feel before you lost the fat?
