Topic: Can Protein Convert to fat?
Replies: 16

I guess that protein would first convert to glucose, if it cannot be stored in the body. Then if this glucose can also not be stored in the body then it will get converted to fat. So I guess an excess would get converted to fat. Actually I believe that is why we get an insulin response from whey pro...

The problem with red meat is, that its difficult to find in a sacred cow country. Even pork is a problem with worlds maximum muslims being in India. I do try to get mutton sometimes. But you get it only in Biryani (ie with rice and lots of refined oil (high in Omega 6 a big no no for me). Its also m...

I would think that a good starting point for any food knowledge is http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/. Basically Wheat, Sugar, and Refined Oils are bad. Starches are not bad, but may be if you have insulin resistance aka glucose intolerance. If you have a belly you have insulin resistance. You a...

A thoroughly useless article. Does not discuss the really good cooking fats, ghee, lard, etc. These are the only safe oils. The others have so much pufa that they go bad while cooking. Even when not cooking Omega6 should not be more than omega3. This is why the options of good oils are actually very...

I have a problem with the item 1 on John Berardi's list. I used to think it was good, followed it for a few months. But now I think eating so many times cannot be healthy. Ever since I learned of the Paleo diet. My arguments basically start with our ancestors. Our ancestors ate when they found food,...

The main problem with Vegans is Omega3. They have pretty much no decent source of Omega 3. Vegetarians can at least hopefully get Pastured butter. They might have to add a lot of flaxseeds, which is not entirely a very healthy choice. Another option is to add Mustard oil, which is not entirely palat...

I somehow don't think that Eggs can be the perfect food. After all our ancestors couldn't have been getting too many eggs regularly. I believe they are an acceptable alternative to meat, but we shouldn't take it to extremes. I think with eggs there could be a too much of a good thing. Many people ha...

"just wondering what to use" You could use leaf lard. That is a flavor neutral fat. Flaxseed oil will not a good option. It is so unstable that you must press it yourself and keep it away from even sunlight and keep it refridgerated. You may continue to use Olive, its not bad at all. Lard is best fo...

Actually the three things almost everybody is deficient are Vitamin D3, K2 and Magnesium. Very few people know that if they get Vitamin D3, the calcium supplementation will not be required. Because it will facilitate its absorption. Vitamin K2 is required because it regulates Vitamin D3 and Vitamin ...

A mostly vegetarian attempting a reduced carb diet

Well I am back. I had been experimenting with the normal type of diets, eating every 3 hours. I had stuck at 85Kgs and then moved up to about 88Kg. Now I finally know the problem. It is carbohydrates ;-). After reading a number of sites at Wholehealthsource and freetheanimal. I have come to the unde...

Actually there is a relation but that does not come out unless you get a lipid NMR. It is related to small sized LDL, which high carb eaters have. http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/search/label/LDL%20cholesterol The above site is a good place to know about LDL cholesterol.

A good site on Omega 6 versus Omega 3 information is the very good whole health source site.

http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/search/label/fats

The site says that beyond 5 grams fish oils will not be much useful. But I am not sure ;-). At least in the beginning it should be useful.

I am curious whether the Vegan Pro MMA fighters are taking some protein supplements. It is not possible with a natural diet.

Its not that Vegetarians cannot excel in strength sports. They can and do eat a lot of Milk and Eggs. These are not available to the Vegans. So this theory applies really only to the Vegans. There are several strong vegetarians, but yes they are in a very low minority. You can have a look at the Sus...

It would seem to be better to start the starting strength program with low weights in the beginning with small increments. There is generally no reason to avoid free weights. You can just use smaller weights and small increments to keep the thing light. Increasing slowly will add a lot of strength. ...
