Re: Muscle Fatigue

Re: Muscle Fatigue

You could try baking soda. Although you'll need to start slowly to assess tolerance (it can cause gastric and intestinal upset).

Re: Food/recipe and general fat loss help

Just to clarify for you, 3 oz. of lean sirloin steak has about 25g of protein. It would take about 1 lb. of steak to reach your goal of 132 g of protein per day. Don't confuse a gram of steak with...

Definitely this. Don't sacrifice form and standards simply to lift heavier or finish faster. Nobody got fitter sitting out with an injury.

Re: Nitric Oxide

An example of something that has some science behind the general idea, but as you note the supplement is underdosed (if it is useful at all).

Todd, I'm not sure if you're familiar with Kurt Harris of Archevore.com (wfs), but he provides a simple analogy of insulin as a doorman at a nightclub. Sounds weird but it's a short read. (Although...

I think you have to distinguish between what is sufficient and what is optimal or even tolerable without harm. Can a hard charging athlete be successful on 150-200 g of carbs? Sure. Can he or she...

Re: Thoughts on Gary Taubes

Oh, man, I’m late to the party here. But I’ll throw in my two cents anyway.

Re: Diet Soda

Assuming you control for the rest of your diet, diet soda won't have a negative impact on body composition.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

In one of the update shows they mentioned that Khalipa had a dedicated endurance coach over the last year and had been mixing in 15+ mile runs into his training. Looks like it's paid off.

Re: Taking Omega3

I agree that avoiding omega-6 is as important (or in my mind more important) than consuming omega-3. However, I think too much stock is put in the o6/o3 ratio and content of grassfed meat.

Re: Your help/ideas

Are your dealings with “Paleos” in person or on the interwebz? If the latter, my guess is that it is as much about netiquette as it is about any one specific diet. Try going to a vegan website and...
