Exercise / Bodybuilding / Re: Excercise frequency

If you follow this advise you'll get strong eventually, but it's certainly not the fastest or safest way to strength. High intensity, low duration, low frequency exercise is both more effective and is certainly safer. But in the end, everyone has their preferences.
Any proofs that it's more effective? I'm not convinced at all. I've done the Body by Science to the letter for half a year, and more effective is not my experience.
"High intensity, low duration, low frequency" is certainly not safer. Not sure how can putting your body under tremendous stress once a week be safe. Moderate intensity, low duration, high frequency on the other hand is.
You want to master something -> you have to do it as often as possible. It's not different with becoming strong.

my goal is to become as strong as possible. Muscle size and fat burning are irrelevant to me.
Then you simply need to exercise every day, but exercise smartly (not exhaust yourself). It should become your occupation essentially... Look at the Bulgarian system for Olympic weightlifting, these guys were as strong as possible and explosive.

I'm doing computer science, at the moment both researcher in a university and leading R&D in a company.
So I could probably help people around computer-related stuff as well.

Some years ago (during high school) I was loading and unloading heavy stuff into trucks (without using machines). Very hard work but it'll make you seriously strong :) Computers and sitting on the other hand..

Exercise / Bodybuilding / Re: working out while slightly sore
« on: March 08, 2013, 03:47:14 pm »
I know that working out while sore is bad but what if im just a little a little bit sore? Should I just work out anyway since its only a bit sore or should I let my muscles recovery completely before working them out again in order to gain full benefit?
Yes if it's only slightly sore it's perfectly fine to exercise again, and you'll get even more benefit than if you wait to completely recover. I do the same exercises every other day, so my muscles are always a bit sore when exercising. The key is a little sore; you should always avoid doing too much damage.

Research says you won't increase the muscle damage if you exercise the same muscles again in the next 6 days: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11581559
Which has proven correct in my case, soreness does not increase but stays same or decreases when I take a break of more than two days.

Over 3 milligauss is dangerous to our health, but we should aim at as close to 0 as it gets of course.
It is not proven that it would be dangerous, only that it would be over what's typically found inside houses.

So plants are earthed and that's why it doesn't affect them.. I don't know if it's true or not, but let's say it is. Next question :) As I said, high power lines are going just above the heads of many people that I personally know. Nevertheless, all of them are perfectly normal, i.e. not any less healthy or less happy than people with much less EMF exposure. How do we explain this?

Until I was 18 years old I lived with my family in a house that is about 10 meters from high power electrical wires. So the wires were exactly above the garden. This place where we lived was probably never planned for houses, as the power line was going straight through the village.. Anyway, I'm still alive and healthy and so is everyone else. For many people the wires are going exactly above their homes, we had the possibility to build the house a few meters away.

In the garden we have a bunch of trees; as they grow high they get very near the wires and even touch them, and then at the top in the part which is like half a meter from the wire would be dead. But below they are perfectly fine, and they give plenty tasty fruits every year. If the EMF was that dangerous for people, shouldn't it also affect the plants too? Because it certainly didn't affect them much, only when they get extremely close to the high power line.

Inger, don't get caught up into everything that's written on the web. Jack Kruse, a neurosurgeon, is talking about EMF? I think it's very obvious that he does not have the expertise for such a topic. If he was a physicist, then that might be a bit more credible. E.g. "the Earth EMF today is not same as in 1930" sounds like some really unsupported by evidence claim, simply because of the fact that the Earth is 4+ billion years old, and that the EMF would change significantly in the span of just 100 years is extremely unlikely.

Also it's obvious that he's not a really good scientist; he has millions of articles on his web site, yet zero scientific publications. This guy, like many others, is a sensationalist, it's just that he's not a professional journalist. He takes a topic (e.g. EMF) and turns it into an interesting story (in whatever way). This attracts readers eager for such sensationalist stories who are also not familiar with the topic and hence believe whatever is written. More readers -> more money, that's the goal here.

The existence of glyoxylate cycles in humans has not been established, and it is widely held that fatty acids cannot be converted to glucose in humans directly. However, carbon-14 has been shown to end up in glucose when it is supplied in fatty acids.[13] Despite these findings, it is considered unlikely that the 2-carbon acetyl-CoA derived from the oxidation of fatty acids would produce a net yield of glucose via the citric acid cycle.[10]

Fat burning will be more or less same irrelevant of how much sugar you eat..

What you're talking about is ketone burning (when you eat very low-sugar), and that's different from fat burning. Ketones try to substitute sugar (as much as it's possible), not fat. Ketones are produced from fat and some ketogenic amino acids, but that doesn't mean that more fat is directly burned for energy.
Number of perixosomes does increase as you increase fat intake (especially if the extra fat is very long chain), but they simply break down very long-chain fat into medium chain and forward it to mitochondria.

Avery simplified example:
I'm eating 150g sugar and 150g fat. That's probably plenty of sugar according to you, but it doesn't mean I'm not using up all that fat. If I were to lower the sugar to 50g, and increase fat to 200g, I'd still burn 150g fat and then the rest of the fat would be ketones.

What do you mean by "strengthening their fat burning ability"? How are you going to do that?

Haha sure, everyone believes something, and how that applies to others is irrelevant.
Just eat as much as it feels right to you.
E.g. I eat 1g/kg bodyweight, and I don't lose muscles nor my immune system is impaired..

CK - any wealth I have is due to CHOOSING to live hand-to-mouth for many years and then making good investment choices with what I was able to save.
...
Anyone can do this if they are willing to forego things now to have much more later in life.
Thanks for sharing Lex, that's a story that many people need to read.

My dad has been living exactly the same way, and by his example me too. He built our house all by himself and help of neighbors without knowing a thing about building a house, in what took 5-10 years because he wouldn't borrow any money.. and even then at first we all lived in one room for a few years until there were money to setup another room for me and my brother. All the money were mostly invested back in his business. And he's still doing the same, still working with a 30-40 years old VW van, sleeping on some old bed and having my mom sew the broken clothes, even though he's probably acquired enough assets by now to be considered fairly rich.

I payed off a school debt of 20K in two years while earning 20K a year and without asking for a penny from my parents, and then friends that have the same debt are wondering and even can't believe how did I manage that. It's all about investing your time and money wisely, e.g. paying out a loan with 7.5% interest is certainly a much better investment than buying a car, a huge unnecessary liability especially if you don't have a family yet to fill the car with. But most don't realize these things and then go on to complain how life is so hard and think that those with some more money got them with some magic.

I think it's normal that blood sugar is high after a meal.. you should measure it fasted in the morning to determine if there's some problem.

Seawater salinity is around 3%, so you'd dissolve 30g salt in a 1L water.

So how does saltwater compare to standard toothpaste? Personally, I only bother with using toothpaste as SAD-eating people don't like the smell of raw meat in the mouth. If I possessed millions, I wouldn't give a damn, but I have to earn a living....
Just dissolve some salt in water and try, it's not like it will be tremendously different from actual seawater.

If you buy them unshelled there's no drawbacks to the nuts. The sesame seeds are very high in antinutrients though.

On another note, who the hell isn't looking to make easy money, if you can?
I'd rather pay to someone who's genuinely into the topic and studied it seriously, not some random guy who's merely telling his experience or something he read on the internet. He's dumb enough to ignore animal foods, why would I take his advice on anything then? How do I know that whatever else he's saying is not equally flawed.
