Re: Optimal protein intake to maximize muscle protein synthesis

It really doesn't say anything very useful except that THEORETICALLY eating tons of dairy, eggs, and meat MIGHT build muscle mass. Plenty of studies have shown that it doesn't. Looks like just another PHd on the agribusiness payroll toeing the research funding line. There are trillions of dollars at...

Re: Is pasta healthy?

Read "Grain Damage" sometime, or any of the other books about the detrimental effects of grains; there are nutritional schools that completely avoid grains. You might want to check them out.

Re: How do I eat to gain muscle?

Muscle is built in the gym, not the kitchen. Go for intensity on the weights; make your muscles work past their current capacity consistently so they grow and make sure to let them fully recover before doing it again. Read "The New High Intensity Training" by Ellington Darden. If your comp...

Re: hemp protein drink - suggestions?

If it doesn't taste good, that's your body telling you it's not food. Trust your senses-they're there for a reason. And high blood sugar is not caused by sugar; it's caused by fat in the blood coating the insulin receptors which slows down the transport of sugar to fuel the cells causing sugar to ba...

Re: Do I have asthma or something worse?

Yeh, best thing you can do-quit the coffin nails. After 3 weeks the urge is usually almost completely gone for most of us. I quit 26 years ago; smoked some 420 a few times a couple years ago and noticed harder breathing and a cough within a few days. Smoking will chew up your lungs and aerobic capac...

Re: Skinny 21 y/o vegan gaining weight and needing a little help

Good1Use.gif For starters, your not skinny. At 5-10 and 130 lbs your body mass index is just in the healthy range. Remember that overweight and obese people are a substantial majority in the US (60% plus) so healthy weight people look odd. 2 to 3 half hour sessions a week in the weight room, consis...

Re: Hello!!! my name is Tina

Been vegan 3 yrs, raw 17 mons. I've found that lifting with a lot of intensity builds good strong solid muscles; I'm slowly gaining muscle lifting only an hour a week-half hour twice weekly but doing it all out for that whole half hour to complete failure. I'll be 50 next year and have never been st...

Re: How many grams of protein intake recommended

Any extreme outlook must be considered with skepticism until valid proof is presented. Otherwise we would all be running around believing in tarot cards, astrology, and big foot... Logical fallacy: argumentum ad populem. Judging the value of an argument by its popularity is not wise. If we did it c...

Re: 282lbs. and wants to get Lean!

I used to have a really bad elbow/wrist that prevented me from lifting real hard. Doctors couldn't figure is out; they MRId it, Xrays, everything. They could see the swelling but said they had no idea what was causing it. I lived with it for two years including several trips to the hospital for cort...

Re: Healthy eating has become an upper class life style.

LOL @ you posting pics of yourself in all these threads Guess I'm kind of skeptical of people talking about nutrition and fitness and not bein able to see em. I wanna see what somebody's philosophy is producin, preferably very long term since most serious disease takes decades to develop. To me, po...

Re: How many grams of protein intake recommended

And that's fine, but your goals are different from the OP's. Hmm, The website says "...Bodybuilding and Fitness." To me, fitness suggests not doing things like consuming excessive protein which are known from the theory and experience to create health problems like arthritis, osteoporosis...

Re: 282lbs. and wants to get Lean!

Forget the cardio man (why beat up your knees cause your gonna need em for a long long time). I don't do any. If your fat content is kept under 10%, you won't need any cardio to get way leaner than you are. Of course eating that low of fat content can seem pretty odd when your not used to it.

Re: How many grams of protein intake recommended

Interesting that you only think raw veganism needs to be backed up with research. I geuss if something is popular, its fine to accept it at face value. Hmmm, logical fallacies 101- argumentum ad populem...sigh.

Re: How many grams of protein intake recommended

There are no separate BMI charts for men and women which means we should weigh the same for a given height-though a women would have a slightly higher fat percentage. And my strength and endurance have significantly increased since going raw. I'm 7 lbs heavier now than last year and lifting quite a ...

Re: How many grams of protein intake recommended

I agree I'm not huge. Obviously not a priority since I lift only an hour a week. I was at our community swimming pool yesterday with about 350 people. Out of that group, I'd say not one person had my combination of muscle and leaness. For many of us who do not want to be competition level body build...
