Re: Critiquing the American diet

I think the "traditional" Kenyan diet depends on tribe and such. The Masai, for example, (I think) traditionally eat cows, cow milk and cow blood. A "traditional" staple is ugali, which is a...

Re: Vegetarian & CF

No, actually I was responding to the person who suggested (not explicitly) that anyone who read GCBC would see that it's true.

I don't disagree with you on the rest -- that was my point though...

Re: Vegetarian & CF

I lost weight and kept it off eating vegetarian and doing Weight Watchers -- and I incorporated legumes, grains, Diet Coke, beer and all manner of evil. The empirical evidence is indisputable ;)

Re: Running a 10k in VFFs.

Hydropel works to prevent blisters -- or you could tape the spots that get blisters. Or, you could try wearing injinji socks underneath.

Re: When Burgers and Weenies don't cut it

Would you mind sharing how you prepare/make your chicken that you were referencing? I was veggie until recently and don't know jack about cooking meat and am most terrified of chicken. Thanks in...

Re: fat doesn't make you fat?

I'm really not trying to be needlessly argumentative, but "construction worker" can mean a lot of things. There are people who drive machinery all day, hold signs, as well as people who do...

Re: fat doesn't make you fat?

With all due respect, you're fabricating a scenario based on totally unsupported assumptions and facts to prove your point. Who are these fat people burning 5000 calories per day and eating less...

Re: fat doesn't make you fat?

I actually read "Good Calorie Bad Calorie" with an open mind and am of the view that all Taubes does is deconstruct all scientific research that differs from his hypothesis, props up any that does...

Re: fat doesn't make you fat?

It seems like people here talk a lot about the role of insulin in the fat gain equation -- without explaining where the info comes from or at least citing some source. I read peoples' comments and...

Re: fat doesn't make you fat?

Could someone please explain how insulin "regulates fat" and how/why eating carbs, even with a calorie defecit, makes people fat?

Re: Salt...not enough in diet?

If you think you might have an electrolyte imbalance you could try drinking Nuun or something similar during workouts. Remember that it's not just sodium that you need but potassium and probably...

Re: Boozahol!

For what it's worth, when I lost a ton of weight some years back I did so without cutting out booze. The day after you have a few drinks your weight will be up due to bloating, but I think the key...

Re: Newbie.... Question about running/CF

I usually run in the AM and CF in the PM. This works fine for me.

People who advocate against running seem to, coincidentally, be people who hate running. So take anti-running sentiment with a...

Re: Reactive Hypoglycemia

I think that if your friend has a medical condition, she should obtain diet advice from a doc or a registered dietician, not friends or random internet people.

Re: Last straw: a little help?

I would tend to agree that you're probably grossly undereating. Also, the stress of worrying so much about the scale can't be helping. Finally, if you think you're 23% bf -- is that so bad? I'm...

Re: Speed of loss of strength?

Mat, I am doing a much higher volume of running than CFE and will do a 3 week taper, though my last 3 weeks will basically look more like CFE running-wise (high intensity but few miles). Thanks for...
