General Discussion / Butter in Canada and food colouring
« on: July 29, 2011, 01:47:44 am »
Note the spelling of "colour": you know you're Canadian when...
My question is whether the labels on canadian butter(store-bought) that say: "may contain colour" should serve as a warning to the consumer. I have heard rumours that yellow-6 might be contained in the butter and that this food-colouring can lead to alzheimers. Anyone know anything about this?

My question concerns the proper amount of calcium to be consumed per day. I want to avoid calcification of the soft tissues and maintain bone density also: currently I am consuming two eggshells(from large eggs) per day spaced out approx. 12 hours. Should I increase or decrease calcium? I am pretty sure this amounts to approx. 1500+mgs. per day. Any advice would be appreciated.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / raw meat: getting started
« on: May 10, 2011, 03:50:25 am »
Hi all, I am keen on making a transition to raw meat in my diet. I have been consuming raw eggs for a time and it has been going fine enough for me to want to brave the next step.
My questions center around 'raw meat': (1) how long can it be kept out of the fridge/freezer? How can it be kept cool(at temperatures that preserve it) without having a fridge? Any cautionary advice/caveats to keep in mind? I hope you all can help.

Hi all, I am wondering if cardio(and of what sort) is compatible with power/olympiclifting. Currently I am walking 30 minutes per day at a brisk pace but have stumbled upon some information regarding tabata/HIIT training that I had not known about previously. I am wondering if there are any knowledgeable folk out there who know what variety of cardio works best with the above styles of weight/strength training? I could always use soem improvement and avoidance of the demon cortisol in massive amounts. Any feedback would be a help.

Exercise / Bodybuilding / Strength training and cortisol
« on: April 28, 2011, 06:17:04 am »
Hey there. I would like to know at what level(of volume) weight-training induces cortisol at chronic levels? Should sessions be kept within the 30-45 minute prescribed limits? Would it be excessive to do a two-per-day session with a 12 hour interval in between , 1 of the sessions amounting to 45 minutes to 1 hour, the 2nd to 30-45 minutes(cycling upper and lower body on alternate days, olympic lifting the 4th day of a 4 day cycle)? Thus far I have been following my schedule and no problems have arisen but I would like to forstall any if they might arise. I train heavy: 1st session 4-6 sets of 4-6 reps for 8 exercises( 4 of which are more 'core' 'compound' , whole body/large muscle mass, multi-joint style, 2 of which more isolationistic); 2nd session: 3 exercises of 6 sets of 1-5 reps(usually on the lower end of the spectrum). How does this cash out in cortisol terms?

Exercise / Bodybuilding / MCT and LCT metabolism and transit time
« on: March 18, 2011, 04:23:30 am »
Does anyone out there know what the difference in transit time is between the chain lengths of Fatty acids? In numbers(ie. x-amount of MCTs takes, on average, y-amount of time---and for LCTs and SCTs also)? What ratio would be optimal for a bodybuilding afficianado? Should each meal contain a mixture of types? If so what mixture and under what conditions should the different Triglycerides be mixed???
