    This is perfect. Don't underestimate the kind of intensity you need. Resistance training should not consist of 10-15 reps at a light weight, or even moderate weight. It should be heavy enough that...

    1. Your "evidence" just isn't real data. Did you control for dietary changes that people may have made during their training?

    2. I would bet that you did a decent amount of anaerobic work going up...

    Not quite. Carbs really are more likely to be used for glycogen storage than fat right after a workout because you are more insulin sensitive. Check out Lyle McdDonald's work for a great review of...

    To summarize an answer: exercise itself only burns fat if you exercise without compensating by eating more. You can do this for a while, but most people fail long-term because they get so hungry. To...

    A large amount of this is (very) popular myth. A few important things:

    1. Steady state cardio has repeatedly been shown not to contribute to weight loss at all. Also, the increase in metabolism...

    Look at Jeff Volek's work, particularly his paper in Strength and Conditioning from 2010. I am not allowed to post the PDF, since it requires access through a university (or direct purchase). Here is...

    That might be true, but being keto-adapted makes it easier for a person to tolerate fewer calories. It has also been clearly shown to better allow nutrient partitioning (burn fat and build muscle at...

    I feel fantastic on either complete ketosis (LOTS of fat, keep the protein moderate to low), or with about 100 grams of carbs each day. If I go somewhere in the middle, it feels like I'm stuck in the...

    1. It doesn't negate anything. Your liver is perfectly capable of metabolizing small amounts of fructose. It is just that sodas and fruit juices and processed snack stuffs have incredibly large...

    The big problem is this:

    Glucose can be easily metabolized by every tissue in your body, and if there is an excess, you just store it as glycogen. It only becomes a major problem if your glycogen...

    I have to call you out on claim A. The evidence is clear that fructose is much more of a problem for insulin sensitivity. The paper shown here demonstrates that quite thoroughly. They put two groups...

    I found two great ways to make sure you can't taste it.

    1. Mix 1/3 liver with 2/3 ground beef, fry it, and cover it in tomato sauce. Spaghetti without the noodles. My kids love it.

    2. Put a...

    At three slices of bread and some fruit each day, there is no way he is in ketoacidosis. Assuming he is not diabetic, he would never reach ketoacidosis even if he ate zero carbs. I say go see a good...

    About time someone contributed something worth reading.

    That might the fatuous statement I have ever heard. Are you really questioning something if you are forced to refrain from presenting that question to anyone else? You are telling me to shut and be...

    You are damn right I questioned it. I know the religious love imposing question-asking bans, but I love the ability to question anything.

    1. There is no logic behind "deeply held beliefs". That is why they are called beliefs. If there was logic or evidence we would call them facts.

    I agree. It is just that I have met people who have never considered the possibility that they could abandon religious practices if they don't make sense. I am happy to let it rest now.

    Supersition: Noun. A widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such a belief.

    I'll use an extreme example (same principle, though) to illustrate how silly your statement is. What if a 14-year old girl from a hard line Muslim family came to you and said "I have to be married to...
