    Spring break has been a great week for me. I got to train four straight days this week. I am going to rock the next tournament. I might do one in June in Springfield MO. I want to lose 10 pounds, so that I can compete at 160-170.

    Kid - you got any tips for a guy who really likes to eat (and drink beer), but wants to lose weight but still feel satisfied?

    the eating part: learn to make clean food taste great with marinating, stir frying in coconut oil/saute-ing and learn to enjoy it lol

    drinking - apple cider

    Do you mean apple cider minus the alcohol, or the hard cider with alcohol? Why is it better for you?

    Thanks!

    hard cider. otherwise I'd say apple cider vinegar :P

    no gluten, feels lighter, usually less empty kcals as well.

    Ahhh, I see. Have researchers not done those kinds of in-depth tests though? I would have thought it would have been thoroughly tested, but in all honesty I know very little about supplementation.

They say those Glucosamine/Condrotin (?) pills are good. If we could get Kidinside to come to this thread he would probably have an assload of suggestions (one of us should pm b/c I know he grapples as well). While your knee is still hurting I would suggest just to work on ground technique, because I always feel like the stand up is where you can hurt it
    Thanks a lot guys It's hard for me to really pin-point exactly where the pain is, but it's difficult to put much weight on that leg, and the doctor said its very stiff where she tried to bend my leg at the knee.

    I've heard from a number of guys at BJJ that GP's here in the UK know very little when it comes to sports injuries, and really show themselves to be what they are...'General' practictioners; able to give you a general diagnosis about what you've injured, but lacking the knowledge to tell you much more than that. I'd agree with that, as the doctor told me I had likely torn a ligament, but referred me to a specialist who would tell me which ligament is torn, and how badly.

    With us having the NHS (National Health Service) here, it's likely I'll be waiting another couple of weeks (I've already waited almost 2 weeks) until I get to see the specialist, so I'll keep you all up to date with that.

    Good effort at the NAGA man, to come away with a victory is great news, and you can only learn and become better from the losses. You know what they say; "You win or you learn", and I'm sure you won't make those mistakes again in future. Good on you!

    you cannot tests efficacy of dietary supplements. Science simply is nowhere near "advance" enough all these Big Pharm companies would have you believe.

    As far as your knee, a. you should keep icing. If there's inflammation it would help to keep it down and b. take some of the pain/discomfort away. Also, keep it very tightly wrapped up. I'd not recommend a brace as it is too "general" (no pun intended hehe) but look up a few ways to wrap it up online and see which works best and hang in there

    Ah I understand. Can you recommend any particular foods/supplements that help joints? I'm not the biggest fan of fish, but force down a salmon steak or mackerel fillet about once a week, and usually eat steak once a week too. I know you're a real clean eater, and I am too, but my diet is very basic (grilled plain chicken breast and brocolli about 5 nights a week), so I'm open to any suggestions to help make it a little more interesting/beneficial for my joints!)

    Thanks a lot for the advice, I've been wearing a brace for the last week or so, but I'm definitely going to take your advice about wrapping it up, especially when I train.

    Nice one, thanks man. My knee feels great today, I can put a lot more weight on it than before and it's not so stiff. I'm going to pick up some flax and hemp seeds later today and get the supplements too. Thanks for the advice man, really appreciate it
