Fasted early morning cardio.

Lightbulb Daily macro averaging - any basis for this

Not trying to go down a rabbit hole here about diet strategies, strictly asking out of academic/personal interest: I'm on board with the notion that over the course of a week/month/year, average intake matters more than any one day in isolation. However, I'm curious if research has been done...

Couple of questions about sugars

Hi, registered just to ask these. 1. Is it true that the only way fructose can be processed is through the liver, and if so, is it true that it can only handle about 50g of fructose a day? Also, what happens if you eat more fructose than your liver can handle? 2. Is it true that fructose is...

Pre-bed shake & GH

Hi, I was wondering: every night before I go to bed, I drink a casein shake, which makes me get up once or occasionally twice each night. Now, since GH takes a couple of hours to peak during sleep, does getting up to go the toilet interfere with this? Will my body still produce enough GH...

The Truth about IF - HGH NOT Anabolic WTF?

Hey guys, I've just checked out a new video by IFBB Pro Ben Pakulski on IF and Growth Hormone.. He says, 'Growth Hormone is NOT anabolic on physiological levels, you're not going to get bigger with Intermittent Fasting.' I was like WTF? What's your opinion about this claim? If that's true,...

Why doesn't skipping BrkFast on IF result in lower energy/focus? Explain with science

I suffer from poor energy levels throughout the day, but after a Blood Test that showed nothing I've realized I just need more sleep than most (7.5 or 8 solid hours isn't enough for me, I need 9). I used to IF, for about a year, I didn't look at the science, it just felt natural for me. I...

Minimum amounts of saturated fat

I've been thinking about saturated fat as I eat very clean. Currently on mini cut at 2400cals 140p, 120f and the balance in carbs. Of my 120g fat about 20g comes from saturated fat (bread, butter, milk, an egg a day etc). Is that enough? Is there a minimum suggested amount of saturated fat? We...

Filling remaining calories on a bulk.

What difference would the type of calorie make? If I meet my 0.8-1g/lb for protein and 0.4-0.45g/lb for fat, and fill the 60% of the remaining calories with some complex carbs ( veggies/fruits ) Best advice on filling the remaining 40%? ICE CREAM? Those remaining calories are often about...

Complete proteins

Would nuts like cashews, pistachios or walnuts combined with legumes like peanuts be a complete protein. Also would you have to eat with almonds (which I've been recently told are not in fact nuts) to get a complete protein. I'm just curious... I usually meet my protein intake through other sources...

Dietary Fat Intake Recommendation Source

Basically the title. I never got to see the clinical study that resulted in the recommended dietary fat intake and I can't work PubMed to save my life. I was also reading this thread and this thread that kind of go against the whole ".45-.5g/lb optimal range". So uhhh yeah.

Question Macronutrients management regarding carbohydrates

If I set my protein intake to ~0.8 g/lb and fat intake to ~0.45 g/lb, and fill all the rest of the calories with carbohydrates ( it was mentioned in the stickies to fill the rest of calories with whatever you like ) , wouldn't that result in any unwanted fat gains? especially on rest days? or...

Question Why should you keep fat lower than carbs?

I know that keeping fat relatively low helps keep you lean and has been advocated by bodybuilders for decades. But why? What makes fat so apt to making your "gains" mostly fat? Is it because your body doesn't use it as a primary source of energy or what? Just curious.
