Re: Post-workout meal

]I discovered 'surge' from t-nation for postworkout and it's said to be one of the best supplement for deliverying creatine to your muscles. But I normally workout between 9pm-11pm, is it such a good idea to take in so much sugar carbs so late? A post workout beverage, such as surge, helps with reco...

I don't think I could ever completely believe that cholesterol was mainly your body's problem. The fact is, high cholesterol readings are due to genetics. Probably because there are two kinds of cholesterol, and the bad cholesterol comes from food, that being only food from animals. Low density lip...

my main concern is too much cholesterol and hard ot digest fat that is going to give me a heart attack soemday. First of all, 70% of your cholesterol is produced by your body. So, if you have a high cholesterol reading, blame it on your parents...:) Research shows that cutting back on high choleste...

I estimated 3400 calories based on his height and weight that he gave in another thread and plugged them into one of those common calorie calculators on the web. I was just trying to give a ballpark figure to contrast w/ eating 2,000 calories in one sitting. John, Ok, that makes sense. Realisticall...

It not the pizza that is bad for an average individual, it consuming 2,000 calories in a meal that is bad.

I'm about as stereotypical "skinny" as one can get. I have all the genetic factors... metabolism, small frame, lightly muscled, etc. I don't know how much of a "skinny" person you are, but I've found that people who aren't "skinny" have some misconceptions about how we work. Yes, I can get away wit...

From what I've learned talking to others and reading lots, the top three are a dunk test (most reliable, but expensive), There problem with hydrastatic is that the research was conduced on five cadavers, dead people. There are a number of problems with this. 1) Statistics are based on large numbers...

Re: Energy for morning workouts

I now need to get something down so that I don't tank while working out. What I've been doing is drinking down a protein shake about 1/2 to 1 hour before lifting. This is okay, but I'm afraid that when I really start pushing myself hard, I'm going to puke it all back up. Is there a better strategy ...

My understanding is that the goal of the post-workout drink is to get that insulin spike and fill those depleted muscles with nutrients and glycogen, etc. and halt catabolism, regardless of whether you tend to gain weight easily or not. Adding fat to the post-workout drink would seemingly substanti...

I think you missed part of the point. The flax and the simple carbs don't go together. That was the main point. That point was not made. In Kevin's post he included the flaxseed oil in his post workout beverage. Your did not state that they did not go to together. I am familiar with insulin resista...

Like you were saying it's going to slow the carb absorption which will be counter productive for the skinny guy. Then the for the fatty the carbs would just make him fatter. So it's really just that they shouldn't be together. I have enjoyed you post. I rarely respond because I agree with the infor...

While I respect Dr. Colgan, that was a big thing back in the early 90's, the L Arginine and AKG thing (alpha keto glutarate). I was willing to give it a shot, but then I went down and priced it; holy smoly. For the doses needed, it will run (or at that time anyway) well over 200 bucks/month. That s...

Just so you all know, there are only two (2) supplement companies in the United States regulated by the FDA.


To my knowledge, the FDA is not yet involved in regulating any supplement company.

The FDA is a bunch of Nazies.
