  • I love the outdoors too for workouts, and biking is a great way to enjoy it while exercising. I feel the benefits that biking has over running are countless, and always recommend it over running. When the slightest hint of spring comes along, I'm outside! I love working out outdoors, it feels so much more real! I have a…
  • I would recommend taking some time to heal the tennis elbow. Take a couple days or a week from gripping weights to help it heal. Working out, especially with heavier weight than you're used to might injure it further, or not allow it to heal. No, doing "cardio" will only take away from working on that slow twitch strength…
  • ^This I have a good friend who is a male model. Has always been ridiculously good looking, and the effect it has on women is insane! Having a six pack changes the game completely. I won't be satisfied until I make rooms uncomfortable just by stepping into them.
  • It's unfortunate, but not surprising you suffered a foot injury due to running. I never recommend running for cardio. It is simply the most dangerous cardio activity possible. The danger is not massive as in the level of damage, but the amount of injuries due to running is crazy. Not to mention the consistent pounding of…
  • The hormonal changes a woman goes through during menopause affects everything about how the body operates. So there's a lot of angles to analyze. 1. Age - As humans get older, their bodies naturally become less inclined to develop muscle as easily. With women and menopause, this becomes even more true. 2. Hormonal changes…
  • @kesslemg Your fitness level is very high after completing both of those at home workouts. So what I would do is change it up a bit from what you're used to. Both of those programs are high intensity, and work fast twitch muscle fibers. It's important to also workout slow-twitch muscle fibers, which is where strength comes…

  • I do strict Ketogenics, and have studied it for a while. Anybody who suggests "cyclical ketogenics" does not understand how the human body, or ketones, or hormones work. Ketosis is a metabolic point in the human body where glycogen stores are reduced to a point that ketones are produced and used as energy. Ketones are…
  • That just seems super unlikely. Your protein must be nothing! Either that or your eating purely meat for breakfast and lunch. I just don't see that. So I think your macros are a bit off. Open up your diary and make it public so we can take a look for ourselves.
  • I do strict Keto, less than 25g of Net Carbs a day. I workout around 2-3 hours of heavy lifting. Keto-adapatation (aka fat-adaptation) basically means that your main energy source is no longer carbohydrates, but fat. So your energy reserves are much, much higher. You can store around 2,000 calories of carbohydrate energy,…
  • Don't eat carbs. Carbs make you fat. Lift heavy. Try Stronglifts 5x5 as a good starting point.
  • I write motivational ideas everyday and post constantly, add me if you interested in keeping in touch!
  • Carbs are unhealthy.
  • The argument Alan Aragon makes against low-carb is that low-carb has the unfair advantage of being also higher-protein..... Hmmm.... Interesting argument
  • My suggestion: progress slowly. 2x daily is a massive drain on energy and will power, so work it up slow. Add just 2x a week at the same time. For me it's after work at 5:30pm, I get off work and head straight to gym. I can't not go if I do it at the same time everyday. Then ramp up the amount of times you go, from 2x a…
  • Truth, I'm guilty of promoting the eating style that I believe in, study extensively, and follow currently. And while CICO is great for weight loss, it does nothing to address the real reason anybody wants to lose weight, health. Can you lose weight and become healthier with CICO? Yes Can you lose weight and become…
  • What you're looking for is called "Ketogenics", low-carb high-fat. It's a lifestyle and a complete change to mainstream eating misconceptions. Carbohydrates are just sugars, sugars which need insulin to be processed, insulin which spikes when you eat carbs and stops the fat burning process. Do the research, learn about the…
  • Posting motivational statuses while keeping you up to date with the intense workouts I do, add me!
  • I weigh myself everyday, and my scale has one of those feet sensors that measures body fat %. Now is it extremely accurate? No. Is it good enough? I think so. But I don't live by the numbers on the scale, I live by the numbers on my diary, the numbers on the iron bar. As long as I keep doing all the right things, and keep…
  • Northwest suburbs here, Wooddale! Add me if you're in Chicagoland and love fitness!
  • Anyone can add me! Ultra dedicated to a Keto lifestyle with philosophical insight into fitness
  • @FunkyTobias Using internet memes to dispel internet memes...
  • That's exactly my point. Only in MFP forums could you say scientific realities without providing any scientific evidence. #fatlogicFTW
  • Why write this? To bash other people's line of thinking? To prove that you are somehow fitness intelligent superior to those ignorant peons that choose to eat organic or gluten free? No you're weak minded and weak willed. Only willing to accept that eating whatever you think is healthy is the only way to "be healthy". I'm…
  • Sedentary: Wake up, sit in car, sit at desk, sit for lunch, sit in car, sit at home, go to sleep. Lightly active: Walk for 10 mins /Done
  • Sugar is not addictive, it's delicious! How can it be harmful? /sic Carbs turn into glucose, sugar turns in glucose, so sugar and carbs are great for your body! /sic Carbs are the enemy, sugar are the footsoldiers. That Sugar Film: Where a guy eats "healthy" high carb, low-fat food and destroys his body... because of…
  • Vodka, soda water, and a lime. Stay hydrated, get drunk, only 64 calories.
