That's because the fresh stuff at the store could be days away from being picked and then lose even more of their nutritional value sitting in your fridge. Turns out carrots were actually more nutritious when frozen, as were brussels sprouts, blueberries and green beans.

I also have a dedicated workout are in the basement now, so I had room for it. I do find it effective and I'm glad to have my Gazelle.

Sun, 5 Dec 2010 21:50:09 EST too much? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x316x37828423 So in the past month or so I've made it a goal to do 30 minutes a day on the gazelle. It's about 375 calories, and I take in 1200 and I'll admit, some days I do take in less. My question is this, within the past few weeks, I've had increased headaches, and I've noticed I'm much more irritable. Am I overdoing it? I didn't think it was possible for an obese person to "over do" exercising Tue, 9 Nov 2010 12:07:50 EST Question of the Week - 10/31/2010 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x316x37651859 Our question this week comes from a new SP member: <BR> <BR> I do very well throughout the day but I have tremendous difficulty after 7pm.
