I hope they do a good job, too.. and that it opens some eyes.

So how many amino acids do you burn for energy? Your body uses essential amino acids (which are put together to build muscle) as an energy source during exercise and any other activities that require exertion. When ONE essential amino acid gets burned, there goes your protein molecule.. because prot...

I'm thinking pineapple! Had quite a bit last week (I also remember reading in a holistic health book that pineapple has been known to be a trigger/irritant) Yep. That would do it. Too much acidic fruit can cause them when you are not used to eating that much. The last time I had one, I was eating a...

That's the first thing I thought, as well. They can be an indication of food allergies.

I also wanted to mention that I just had a blood panel run (for insurance purposes) and all my levels are within normal limits. The tests included protein, nitrogen, creatinine.. among other things. I am definitely NOT eating too much protein. I'm right smack in the middle of the acceptable ranges. ...

Is it just experimenting, or are there any good methods to determine your optimal caloric needs? Oops, sorry I am so late on this!! I really only analyze my diet when I want to reach a particular goal. I have a good handle on my caloric needs from experimenting, dieting for comps and I have a metab...

Well, personally I need to lower my fat intake in order to lose fat. Everyone is different. I also eat a bit more protein. So if at all possible, I would advocate swapping the ratios on protein and fat. It sounds like you have the rest covered in terms of types of foods and working out. ~ Adrienne

You NEED a rest day (I prefer 2, but that's me). All your progress is made when you are resting and repairing!!! Rest means rest, not Nordic Track :D

Jenny, can you share what your current program is like? Those last few pounds (of fat) are the hardest to get rid of. Generally, our bodies are quite comfy with a layer of fat and they will fight to keep it. Also, try not to define your goals in terms of scale weight... in all honesty, scale weight ...

I went through the same thing after my last show.. back in May of last year. I would drag myself to the gym and just be totally unmotivated to lift. I decided to train for a triathlon instead (a sprint). So I started swimming, running and biking. I scaled back my liftting because I couldn't give it ...

Can you really maintain energy and your physique at 1700 calories? Right now, yes. I am trying to cut a little body fat (as I said - this whole debate stemmed from my advice on how to lose), so I am maintaining a calorie deficit. When I am not doing this, I maintain at around 2000 calories a day. A...

Here's a summary of a few studies: http://www.jacn.org/cgi/content/full/19/suppl_5/513S Most of the studies agree that athletes need increased protein amounts and that they should get 1.2 - 1.8g/kg of protein per day, depending on sport and training intensity. If I choose the higher end (1.7) and mu...

From your post, you agree the baby is getting by with 7% protein, yet you advocated 20% to 30%, in cases where I would imagine the protein need would be less - body building where the adult is growing but no where near the rate of the infant. . The baby is growing so the baby needs a HUGE amount of...
