  1. Poppycock. Fermented foods might be beneficial for digestion but the human body is really, really good at eliminating metabolic toxins and there is zero evidence that there is any need to ever do anything to assist this process or that you even can...although, in one way or another, this has been a recurring quackery theme over time...bloodletting, purgatives, enemas and colonics...

    Food Finds

    The waffles are unfortunately dry as old toast...back in the early days of low carb everything, Kellogs made a LC frozen waffle that was remarkably similar to a normal Eggo but alas, they are no more. The Kodiak pancakes are very good.
  3. I'm tempted to get some isolate powder and make my own homebrew with MCT oil so I can get a reasonable dose per ml although I am not exactly sure what I expect from it.

    If you are jonesing for Doritos and want to keep to some better macros, these are probably your new best friend. 18g of PRO in a small bag, 4g of CHO and 6g of F They don't quite have the body of a real corn chip but as a simulation, they do a remarkable job, especially given that they are basically made of whey protein powder.
  5. New Biotest Lattetropin XL
  6. Only lacking for some of us apparently.

    I know what it is supposed to mean but how do you actually know you have only one left unless you tried to do one more rep and came up short? And what's half a rep look like?
  9. Chest Flat Bench, Seated Kaiser Flyes, Landmine Press, Single Arm Kaiser Flyes, Incline Bench, Power HIIT Doing HIIT at the end of the workout kinda sucks. My bench is really struggling...unable to do 305x1 today.
  10. And apparently, if you are Chinese, egg consumption is protective against CVD...which makes me think there was some inadequate control for other factors in the most recent American study. Heart. 2018 Nov;104(21):1756-1763. doi: 10.1136/heartjnl-2017-312651. Epub 2018 May 21. Associations of egg consumption with cardiovascular disease in a cohort study of 0.5 million Chinese adults. Qin C1, Lv J1, Guo Y2, Bian Z2, Si J1, Yang L3, Chen Y3, Zhou Y4, Zhang H5, Liu J6, Chen J7, Chen Z3, Yu C1, Li L1; China Kadoorie Biobank Collaborative Group. OBJECTIVE: To examine the associations between egg consumption and cardiovascular disease (CVD), ischaemic heart disease (IHD), major coronary events (MCE), haemorrhagic stroke as well as ischaemic stroke. METHODS: During 2004-2008, over 0.5 million adults aged 30-79 years were recruited from 10 diverse survey sites in China. Participants were asked about the frequency of egg consumption and were followed up via linkages to multiple registries and active investigation. Among 461 213 participants free of prior cancer, CVD and diabetes, a total of 83 977 CVD incident cases and 9985 CVD deaths were documented, as well as 5103 MCE. Stratified Cox regression was performed to yield adjusted hazard ratios for CVD endpoints associated with egg consumption. RESULTS: At baseline, 13.1% of participants reported daily consumption (usual amount 0.76 egg/day) and 9.1% reported never or very rare consumption (usual amount 0.29 egg/day). Compared with non-consumers, daily egg consumption was associated with lower risk of CVD (HR 0.89, 95% CI 0.87 to 0.92). Corresponding multivariate-adjusted HRs (95% CI) for IHD, MCE, haemorrhagic stroke and ischaemic stroke were 0.88 (0.84 to 0.93), 0.86 (0.76 to 0.97), 0.74 (0.67 to 0.82) and 0.90 (0.85 to 0.95), respectively. There were significant dose-response relationships of egg consumption with morbidity of all CVD endpoints (P for linear trend <0.05). Daily consumers also had an 18% lower risk of CVD death and a 28% lower risk of haemorrhagic stroke death compared to non-consumers. CONCLUSION: Among Chinese adults, a moderate level of egg consumption (up to <1 egg/day) was significantly associated with lower risk of CVD, largely independent of other risk factors. PMID: 29785957
  11. I have not looked at the study closely enough to see if they controlled adequately for diabetic status but other studies have demonstrated that the association between egg consumption and increased CVD only holds in diabetics. Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 Apr;87(4):964-9. Egg consumption in relation to cardiovascular disease and mortality: the Physicians' Health Study. Djoussé L1, Gaziano JM. BACKGROUND: A reduction in dietary cholesterol is recommended to prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although eggs are important sources of cholesterol and other nutrients, limited and inconsistent data are available on the effects of egg consumption on the risk of CVD and mortality. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to examine the association between egg consumption and the risk of CVD and mortality. DESIGN: In a prospective cohort study of 21,327 participants from Physicians' Health Study I, egg consumption was assessed with an abbreviated food questionnaire. Cox regression was used to estimate relative risks. RESULTS: In an average follow-up of 20 y, 1550 new myocardial infarctions (MIs), 1342 incident strokes, and 5169 deaths occurred. Egg consumption was not associated with incident MI or stroke in a multivariate Cox regression. In contrast, adjusted hazard ratios (95% CI) for mortality were 1.0 (reference), 0.94 (0.87, 1.02), 1.03 (0.95, 1.11), 1.05 (0.93, 1.19), and 1.23 (1.11, 1.36) for the consumption of <1, 1, 2-4, 5-6, and > or = 7 eggs/wk, respectively (P for trend < 0.0001). This association was stronger among diabetic subjects, in whom the risk of death in a comparison of the highest with the lowest category of egg consumption was twofold (hazard ratio: 2.01; 95% CI: 1.26, 3.20; P for interaction = 0.09). CONCLUSIONS: Infrequent egg consumption does not seem to influence the risk of CVD in male physicians. In addition, egg consumption was positively related to mortality, more strongly so in diabetic subjects, in the study population. PMID: 18400720

    Okay...you need to explain this to me. RPE is a subjective measure of how hard you are working...correct? Rating of Perceived Exertion? How can you possibly get that granular using a subjective scale?
  13. Shoulders Power HIIT, Kaiser Shoulder Press, Hammer Spreads, Kaiser Shrugs, Plate Raises My lifting partner told me today that my lateral delts were starting to really pop which is about 60% as good as having my wife tell me that and about 14% as good as having some woman in the gym who I don't know tell me that.

  15. The place I work for is glacial about hiring....I always tell candidates that when I interview them.
  16. I've actually been on a Committee on Committees...it was surreal.

    Diet 2019

    This is what I meant. If you want to consume a lot of excess calories and not gain weight, or as much weight, PRO is your friend. And yes, there are many other reasons to favor a high-protein diet.
  18. Legs Goblet Squats, BSS, Step Ups, Weighted Walking Lunges, Air Squats 25# vest Another sort of rushed workout....too many meetings.

    Diet 2019

    True. We've got a good thread here...some good data to support Kimbo's point that if you are going to eat excess anything, PRO is probably the best thing to choose from a weight gain perspective....but still not much evidence out there that you gain much additional LBM by going massively above .6g/lb BW

    Diet 2019

    I'm not clear why everyone is shooting for such massive PRO intakes...almost all of the available data says that there is no advantage to consuming more than 0.6g/lb BW

    Diet 2019

    I don't know what I am doing with my diet these days other than trying to be low-moderate carbish and getting about 130-150g/day of PRO. Breakfast tends to be the same. Bagel with butter and Pure Protein Drink (50g CHO, 30g PRO, 10g F) 30-40g PRO in collagen coffee over the morning My lunch is my Post WO meal so that almost always is the same thing: a bowl of Fruity Pebbles in Fairlife skim milk, Rise Protein Bar, Pure Protein Drink (60g CHO, 50g PRO, 16g F) Dinner can be many things but usually 30-40g of protein in the form of meat and another 50-70g of CHO in the form of rice or noddles and another 10-15g of F Snacks include peanuts and cashews Greek yogurt or Skyr.
  23. An excellent point. Lipids are indicators.
  24. It's unfortunate that metformin tears your guts up...that, or berberine, would probably help...berberine has some liver enzyme interactions you want to be careful with.
