    The most important answer is to get your entire body strong – especially your back. The deadlift is the only real answer. Another is the face pull with a band to specifically counteract the position...

    The BMI equation was developed in 1832, long before powerlifting existed in any formal way.

    What you have actually done is just restated BMI (for total mass) and FFMI (for fat-free mass), but made it linear instead of squaring the height and switched the units to pounds/inches instead of...

    The problem with Body By Science is that it is not really based on good science at all. If you goal is just to get a very modest result from minimal effort, it may be fine, but nobody has ever become...

    You don't understand what the horse or the cart are even doing. The elevated glucose is a result of insulin resistance. Having elevated levels of a hormone (insulin) and a decreased response to it...

    dilberry,
    You need to stop trying to discuss physiology that you don't understand. Insulin resistance is the cause of type-2 diabetes, and the loss of -cells later during disease progression...

    Get a glucose monitor and test before and then 30 and 60 minutes after after every meal for a few days. Keep a detailed log of what you ate and what your blood glucose was. If you have never done...

    Do you eat your carbs evenly spaced throughout the day, or at a particular time? Also, have you ever monitored your blood glucose levels with a glucose meter to see where you are at before and after...

    This is a bit too vague to evaluate. Can you be more specific? What does moderate mean to you for carb intake? When you say active and fit, what does a normal week look like as far as exercise?...

    It seems strange to discuss increasing muscle mass without discussing training. What does your strength training plan look like? Nutrition alone has a large effect on adipose tissue over time, but...

    Gorbag,
    I agree that chronic mental/emotional stress, or even chronic-cardio type exercise could lead to decreased muscle mass. However, lack of high-intensity musculoskeletal stress is the...

    It may seem like I am splitting hairs here, but I don't entirely agree that homeostasis is the best term for describing the maintenance of skeletal muscle mass. First off, homeostasis indicates...

    I am curious as to what you mean by this. If humans aren't "exactly built to build mass", why is it that human skeletal muscle responds to mechanical stress by getting larger? Also, you say that the...

    Adding piles of rice, potatoes and milk at every meal will certainly give you weight gain (quickly), but much will be fat. I add those foods in very large quantity for the meals just before and after...

    The numbers here don't make any sense. A 3lb gain in weight in 10 weeks with strength numbers up, but you think you are gaining fat? A 3 lb gain in body fat would barely even be detectable, and the...

    I think you are fine. I'll just add one thing about glycogen synthesis: Glycogen stored in the liver is used to maintain blood glucose levels between meals, but muscle glycogen is only used locally...

    Here is what I know:

    1. Postprandial TG is mostly influenced by fat, but large amounts of carbohydrate can do it too.

    2. 50 grams of plain honey is not an enormous amount of fructose (if that...

    Postprandial measurement of anything will vary wildly depending on what you ate. Exactly how much of what foods did you eat, and how long after eating was the blood draw?

    Can you clarify how you can conclude this from muscle attachments and their leverages? I can't see how the two are related in any way. Muscle attachment sites determine the priorities of strength vs....

    I doubt you need that much at your size unless your workouts become very intense. After a difficult workout I have never had trouble putting down 2kg of meat and potatoes, but I am also nearly twice...
