    Dumb Questions Thread

    Shop Now
    Everyone has a question on their mind right now that they want to ask, but they'd rather not risk getting flamed. Throw them up! No flaming.

    The only one I can really think of, would be is one gram of glutamine a gram of protein? Ie if someone takes 2 grams of X amino acid (glutamine, tyrosine, ect...) is that 2 grams of protein?

    I think the answer is yes because they are amino acids, but Im not positive haha.

    Forgot to add, Try to answer someone else's question every time you post a question!

    Why are people so rude and inflammatory of late?

    Why do people eat walnuts regularly when they have a ton of PUFA?

    What can I tell people when they say that a ketogenic diet harms brain health (via by-products or something)?

    Anyone have any chicken heart recipes?!

    I seem to fall off the primal wagon on and off. How do I ensure that once I get on it, I stay on it???

    If I'm not hungry or I IF a bit through the day, do I still need to consume .7-1g of protein for lean body mass? I find that some nights I'm not hungry but my protein intake is low (say, 60% of what I should consume daily) so I eat to up my protein. Do I need to do this?

    Maba- what's the common thread when you fall off the wagon? I'm literally finding myself afraid to boost my carbs above 50g because I'm concerned I'll go into a carb-craving mania.

    Why is my CF trainer so against Primal and pro-Paleo??? Paleo seems so restrictive to me!!

    Tara tootie- You might get a kick out of the song "Class" from the movie musical Chicago.
    Why is the average person only wanting a quck fix for their weight, regardless of what else it does to their body (grapefruit diet, cauliflower diet, color diet)?

    Tara:

    Do you mean that you find people in general to be rude and inflammatory lately, or people on this board? If it's people in general I could wax philosophic about that one...

    Again, if "people" is people in general, I imagine they eat walnuts regularly because they don't know about PUFAs and what they do. Actually the same could be said for some followers of the PB who read that walnuts are a good source of Omega-3s and that nuts are good for you and stop there.

    The human brain developed to its current incredible capacity under the influence of at least sporadic ketosis, if we make the assumption that ancient African Grok wasn't eating a ton of fruit every day. Give the doubters an outline of Grok's diet, carbohydrate intake, an approximate upper limit of carb intake for ketosis to occur, and let them do the math.

    Maba:

    You cannot ensure that you don't fall off the wagon. All you can do is stop yourself from buying junk. Sometimes you will indulge at a party or whatever. It happens, and it doesn't make much difference in the long run.

    Meggilizz:

    To be a CF trainer, I imagine you have to have a mindset just as extreme as the workouts you have to complete and ensure your students perform well at.

    PC RE: rudeness... I mean people HERE. Eh oh well I cant really do much about that.

    RE: Walnuts... also here. I mean they are yummy, and way better than twinkies.

    RE: Brains and such... THAT makes sense to me but when people cite their professors and tell me about a study that shows the same, I come up empty.
