Calcium(mg):Protein(g) Ratio

The recommended ratio is 20:1, based on the fact that the amount of calcium you lose in urine bring proportional to the amount of protein you consume. Since I, as well as many of you I would imagine, consume a lot of protein... that kind of throws the whole ratio out of whack. I'm operating at about...

Re: Is it really the carbohydrates? Good blog post.

Can someone point me in the direction of the appropriate reading material to better understand this complexity? I'm currently taking a nutrition course at university, and the term project is a personal diet analysis. It would be nice to be able to adequately justify my high protein/reduced carb diet...

Re: Is it really the carbohydrates? Good blog post.

That leaves me confused. My perception of the simplified reasoning behind carb consumption leaving one more prone to the accumulation of adipose tissues was just that - insulin spikes. If eating cereal leads to a lesser insulin response than meat + eggs, then what is it?

You could go to a 4 day cycle, push/pull/legs/rest. There is nothing that says that your cycle has to be 7 days long. Once you get out of the week long cycle, all sorts of options pop up. Let your recovery needs drive your frequency. That's not a bad idea at all! I simply scheduled one day a week o...

I have learned the errors of my ways, and am ready to start a wiser routine. I am thinking of a Push/Pull/Legs three day split with each muscle group being worked 2x a week. As generally prescribed, I am limiting my workouts to 36-50 reps per muscle group without exceeding a total of 15 sets (of the...

I forget exactly what happens after a workout but i know its good to get simple carbs and fast absorbing protein (whey isolate). Not fat or fibre because they slow down digestion. Depletion of muscle/liver glycogen and increased protein synthesis is what happens. The immediate need for simple carbs...

I have plenty of whey myself, but was wondering if this person brings up any valid points, or is completely out to lunch: http://www.enerex.ca/articles/whey_prot ... uctose.htm

Is this approaching acceptability, or is there more that must be shed? I would probably be done each of these days, save for legs, in 45 minutes and would train 5-6 times a week. Day 1 1. Shoulder Press (dumbbell) 2. One Arm Rear Delt Row (cable) 3. Lateral Raise (dumbbell) 4. Front Raise (dumbbell)...

@ironmaiden708 Great. Books are good. Yet, the title of a book does not, however, indicate the source of the dietary recommendation. The figures of 430-650mg per day in the quote I provided are from various research bodies. If you don't trust the credibility of that particular website in terms of as...

@ Stephen Johnson The main problem with a full body routine is that I'm quite hopelessly addicted to exercise in general. I need to do *something* on a daily basis, and feel like its a minor tragedy if I don't. Basically, I need to be in the gym almost every day of the week, especially with the havi...

The widely approved guideline you would be talking about recommends people take in about 1.7g of omega-3 per day. Uhm, I'm not entirely sure how this tangent relates to the discussion of saturated fat in yogurt which has little to do with omega-3, but whose recommendation are you referring to? This...

It's hard to go against the medical community when there is no definitive answer. Every government agency that has any authority on the matter and most reputable dietary guides seem to be against high saturated fat intake. Cardiovascular disease? Worse serum cholesterol profiles? Cancer? Until there...

Is the same true for a low carb, moderate fat diet?
