Your Questions
Your Questions

I get plenty of questions in various comments throughout the website, but I also get comments and questions via the Project Swole Contact Form.

Generally I address those questions through e-mail, but often I do not have the time to reply to each and every question personally.

From now on I want to take a more proactive approach to answering Your Health Questions by posting them separately in the blog. This way we can be sure that everyone benefits from the Q & A.

“I was wondering if some of the things that i normally eat on a regular basis are healthy or not.. I’m 19 years old and do not get good home-cooked meals anymore.. I’m now living on my own so I try and make things that are fast and easy.

Here is a list of some of things that I take in:

  1. Special K strawberry cereal
  2. salad mix (packaged) with non-fat thousand island dressing
  3. unsweetened luzianne tea with 2 pkgs. of sweet n lo
  4. 100% orange juice (Tropicana)
  5. grapefruit juice ( do not want to give up)
  6. lean cuisine meals (all)
  7. granola and Nutri-Grain bars

What should I be substituting these with?

And also are rice cakes and real fruit smoothies good for you?”
