Re: food vs synthetic

The vitamin D supplementation thing can be interesting...there is some unpublished research demonstrating that mice lacking vitamin D in their diet tend to eat more food and gain more weight(in this case it is fat) than mice with proper vitamin D in their diet. They also tended to drink more ampheta...

Re: cardio glycogen stores

Thanks Dub, this was incredibly helpful. The only part where I am really huffing and puffing is the uphill run--which took me like 15 minutes. The rest of it I am breathing deeper than normal but certainly not gasping for air. This morning I feel a little sore, but still pretty great, so it sounds l...

cardio glycogen stores

Hi all, I am training for a sprint triathlon, which requires a ton of cardio training. This is the short version: (1) How long does it take for chronic cardio to dig into glycogen stores and (2) If I am digging into glycogen stores via cardio, how should I be eating prior and post workout? Similar t...

Bod Pod Measurements

Hi all, Anyone have a guess on how accurate these things are? More specifically, do folks here use these regularly or semi regularly to track their progress? Just by doing a quick pubmed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=bod+pod+validity search it seems that folks are trying to find the corre...

Re: Omega 6 Overload from Nuts?

I am surprised about how little O3 I actually get...I am glad I can get it through vegetables (who would of thought they had fats!), but I eat quite a bit of meat, and the amount of O6 I get from meat doesn't catch up with the amount I get from veggies. I guess I should just replace an entire meal w...

Re: Can you add to Strong lifts at all?

I used to add lifts to the stronglift routine, then I took an arrow to the knee.

Re: Personal Best Log

I consider 90 a full squat. I think think there is some debate about whether going lower actually helps. I think I saw it somewhere on this forum actually.

Re: Feedback on my routine/diet

I think I will stick to something like 200 over, 450 under, that way I amass to about a 1 lb every 14 days (which is like, one cycle of workouts for me before I switch up non core lifts) or 2 lbs a month. Slow and Steady wins the race. On a related note--My deadlift has become a problem in that I ca...

Re: Feedback on my routine/diet

Thanks for all this feedback! Ok this makes more sense--surplus on weight lifting days with some carbs after, and a deficit on the off days. I imagine that the deficit on the off days should be more negative than the surplus (i.e. 250 cal surplus and a 500 cal deficit). The lower carbs on off days m...

Re: Feedback on my routine/diet

Thanks for the feedback Dub--

I do feel destroyed after the workout, but I can lift again in two days time without problem--although sometimes I need 72 hours of rest rather than 48.

Good to know I should eat more...cuz I am like, ALWAYS hungry :)

Feedback on my routine/diet

Hi folks--just wanted to get some feedback! I bolded my questions to help parse through out all the info I am giving...My major goal is to not necessarily gain muscle mass, but to lose fat without losing muscle mass. I am a 5' 11"", 200 lb guy. I have a lot of muscle mass, but the dreaded genetic be...

Re: high protein pasta and cereal

Thanks for the clarification Stuward--

It sounds like I just need to tough it out and pay the extra dough for some good veggies.

Re: high protein pasta and cereal

Never understood that argument. "It has one gene that shouldn't be there, therefore it is bad for me". In my opinion, grains and legumes, of any type, introduce anti-nutrients that can insidiously cause disease and also displace healthier foods like fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and eggs. Is there ...

high protein pasta and cereal

Hi folks--I just have a clarifying question. I bought some kashi cereal and some whole wheat spinach pasta. I bought them because (A) I love cereal and pasta and (B) they have a higher amount of protein than your typical cereal and pasta. Kashi has about 14 gram per cup (about 1/3 calories comes fro...

Re: giving dumbbells some love

Unfortunately--mine only go up to 50 lbs each. I did not have a ton of foresight on this one. Oh well--lesson learned!
