Re: Myths, Presumptions, and Facts about Obesity

Better for what? Both have their place. Chances are that any study that compares them to each other is measuring the wrong thing. If you want to improve your running, you need to run. If you want to improve your relationship, have sex. From a calorie burning point of view, which is a piss poor reaso...

This is a 4 year old thread. However, this forum doesn't have much activity any more. People have moved to Reddit and Facebook.

Re: How many times a day do you eat?

Re: Gross versus Net

Gross includes the calories you would burn from doing nothing. That's useful if you're trying to add up all your calories for the day. Net just included the incremental calories from the exercise itself.

Merry Christmas

I have no idea if anyone will see this. It seems like I'm the last man standing. Anyway, I'm moving to Alberta for a while so I'll only be on once in a while.

Re: Cooking/mixing oat flour more appealing?

In my opinion, oat flour may have value as a post workout carb that you can mix into your post workout shake but otherwise it's no more useful than wheat flour unless you're celiac.
