Can anyone recommend a book(s) that I can learn all about the cardiovascular system, cells, insulin, glucose, gene expression, protiens, oxidative damage, metabolism, ect. ect. so that I can better follow along when reading studies on IF and things of that nature.

A textbook obviously, but they only cost $100+.

Thanks

Was that sarcasm? Regardless...follow this link:

In the first 5 pages of results I couldn't find anything more expensive than $1.96. It's worth mentioning though that in many cases, textbooks will be several years/theories behind what is often discussed here.

Neal,

I've got great book for you. Unfortunately, I left halfway up the trail at Pere Marquette State Park. Grab your sandbag, son. :lol:

Matt, no disrespect intended! It really did slip my mind to look at used books. I was poking fun at myself. :happy:

John, I went out that day an carried a 100lbs. sandbag around my neighborhood in honor of you guys but I only made it about .65 miles according to google earth. My shins were burning! I've had enough sandbag for the time being thank you! :happy:

Textbook of Medical Physiology by Guyton & Hall
ISBN #0721602401
(you might also be interested in their pocket textbook version, a condensed and cheaper alternative)

Endocrine Physiology by Balint Kacsoh MD
ISBN #0070344329

I like to use www.bigwords.com to examine the various prices (used and new) on the internet. I'm going to check out Matt's link as well.

Buy the previous edition, prices always drop precipitously once the new editions come out.

100lbs is a lot for any distance. We did play around with a 100 pounder after the hike. It feels like a heck of lot more than twice the weight of 50 pounder! The truth is I'm at least as dissappointed I didn't get to show you the Cold Steel Gurhka Kukri I brought along (and left in the car. "You see, Ranger, there was this thread Neal started on the Crossfit website about zombies, right?" "Who's Neal? Well, he's not acutally here right now...")

Neal,
In my previous life I was a Biology Major. I'm sure I've got some books laying around you could borrow. Let's meet at Pere Marquette sometime soon. Maybe John and Mark could join us for the long trail. 4 hikers, 3 50# bags sound good? The odd man carries the water.

Chris, sound like a plan!
