Nutrient Partitioning and Refeeds

Does having a refeed 5 days after a massive deficit (low carbs) have beneficial effects on body composition?

Nutrient Timing

Reading about IF and seeing some results, clearly it works well for some people. My question is how far you can take it. Is there something about a 24 hour day that is special? Could IF be used for the entire week to some degree? For example, could one set up their macros for an entire week,...

Is the energy balance model a valid scientific theory of weight gain/loss?

Hi! So I am not in any way disputing the notion that the best way to achieve your weight goals is to track your calories and macronutrients in the manner suggested in the stickies. The question of whether this method is successful is independent, though, of whether the energy balance model (cal...

Caloric Demand for Protein Synthesis

Before you send me to the newbie stickies, let me explain this one.

I realize this misconception comes from the fact that...
