Gluttony, Sloth and the Metabolic Syndrome: A Roadmap to Lipotoxicity

In this paper, the authors present the fact that obesity and hyperleptinemia protect lipid-intolerant nonadipose organs against lipotoxic lipid spillover during sustained caloric surplus.

No-no's of body building

What is the calculation for sodium intake?

I'm not interested in the one size fits all 1500-2300 mg recommendation.
