    When I'm sprinting I'll typically hit 1 max effort day and 1-2 tempo run days every 10 days. The tempo runs are typically the same distance with lower intensity.

    I take large doses of iodine, only temporarily as I build up my stores. I was tested by a functional med doc and mine was very low. Before you go taking large doses you should read up on it a...

    I like the Fitbit, but the basic model is $60 or $70. I recommend it to clients because you can record and input a ton of data and you can compete with other people via their dashboard. It also...

    Could be a bunch of stuff. Under-recovery, poor sleep, poor stress management, poor diet. If you are doing intense effort activity carbs are absolutely necessary. In fact, carbs are used primarily...

    I would talk to my Doc as he is more familiar with your situation. My guess is, if he's a good Doc, he will be pretty psyched you are going at it via diet. The gliclazide has a direct effect on...

    I agree with SCruz, most people don't see significant improvement from where you are without strength training. Your diet looks ok but you could be deficient in several things in the absence of bone...

    Any symptoms of fatigue, muscle twitches, insomnia, hot flashes, headaches, dizziness when standing? Any other things of note?

    Could be a few things, certainly you will wake up if your blood glucose gets low while you sleep because you will secrete cortisol to increase blood glucose. Another option is low magnesium levels. ...

    Because you won't replenish glycogen in that 3-4 hour period where you would absorb that carbohydrate. It would then cause an increase in blood glucose followed by a significant insulin response and...

    That would be a bad idea. Your body replenishes glycogen at a rate of about 3% an hour, with full replenishment about 36 hours later. Of course, that data comes from an average joe who is not...
  12. It depends. Anything lasting 10 seconds or less...

    It depends. Anything lasting 10 seconds or less is really not going to use too much glycogen, you will primarily rely on ATP directly with body fat recharging it between sets. If you don't recover...

    Meh, I think it glosses over a few non-calorie related issues wrt to gut flora. Percentage of the types of gut flora is dictated by what, not how much. The make up of gut flora impacts hunger as...

    My recommendation would be to skip the spin classes and just weight train. 30-45 minutes 2-3 times a week is fine, but it should be intense. After a few weeks of training with 12 reps to adjust to...

    My first thought was along the line of mitochondria, but I don't think diet is going to be that big of a factor. There are studies showing a high fat diet leading to mitochondrial biogenesis, but...

    Phew, what an interesting thread. Some thoughts:

    1)We need to refer to it as the insulin hypothesis, not the carb hypothesis. Carbs are not the problem, a reliance on insulin as the primary means...

    3 or so months, but given you're a woman you may be sticking to higher reps than you need. Once you've spent 4-6 weeks of connective tissue adaptation with sets of 10-12 reps, there really isn't...

    The way this kind of stuff works is more related to what the brain uses for fuel, not the body. When you either fast or eat a ketogenic style diet, your liver starts producing ketones in response to...
