Is rate of glycogen depletion different from person to person?

I'm just over 3 weeks out from my first competition. I'm eating at what is said to be my maintenance calories (according to the harris benedict formula) but am still losing weight at a rate I'm fairly happy with (I have a very high tolerance - need to eat well above maintenance to put on weight)....

Vitamin A, How much is too much.

Anyhow, I heard more than 2,500iu from a multi of vitamin A from retinol can cause a decrease in bone mass and hair loss. (the real number is 5,000iu, but you have to assume you get some retinol from food.) Anyways, I like how AST Multi Pro 32x looks, but you take it twice a day meaning...

Unhappy Cravings in the evening?

I love working out and I push myself hard in the gym in the mornings but I get so mentally weak with cravings in the evening and I tend to indulge in either chocolate or toast. How do you stop yourself? Any tips?

Eating carbs alone

People, Does it matter if I eat carbs alone? For example, eating a bowl of fruit or oats in the breakfast without any protein/fat to lower the GI. Does the body gets more resistant to insulin eating just the carbs or gain more BF this way? It's better to have meals always with carbs and...

LDL Cholesterol and Atherosclerosis?

Hi, I was wondering if LDL cholesterol is linked to atherosclerosis and thus cardiovascular disease? I have seen people that claim the link between LDL cholesterol and atherosclerosis is weak or even non-existent. I have heard that there really isn't any science confirming a link between the two....

Proper Pre&Post Workout on IF

If anyone with good knowledge of IF could answer that would be great! So I've recently decided to try a Keto IF diet. I really don't eat a lot of carbs in a day to begin with, so when I started IF I started eating even less carbs since I didn't really need it. Anyways, my question is that, I...

Why do you need carbs?

How come you see one side of diet plans suggesting macro-moderation or some sort of balanced ratio with carbs typically being the highest, but then when you see what the pro bodybuilders are eating like coleman, cutler, heath, arnold etc it's like 85-90% protein and a bit of brown rice or potatoes....

Not another nutrition plan...

Hey guys, so I'm looking to try and take my gains to the next level. I've been lifting for about 2 years, seriously lifting for 7 months now. I feel like I should have come a lot farther than I have, and I know it's mostly my nutrition in-take that's holding me back. I'm currently using a 5/3/1...

Do you take into consideration exercise intensity when determining activity level

For example I work out using a trx suspension trainer 5 times a week for half an hour each session (30 minutes exercise, not warmup and cool down) and despite being in great shape I'm dying at the end. So my activity level would technically be moderate (150 minutes a week) but that would only put...

Cut, Bump and Blitz Nutrition Plan. Hows it look?

Alright, so I've recently been trying to change up my nutrition. I've been in the process of trying to lean out and now I'd like to build some muscle but still somewhat maintain my lean figure.

Is there a "good" and "bad" fat?

Alan Aragon, bestow your wisdom upon us. "Not eating carbs after working out"

All in one meal? Is it possible?

I have dysosmia and dysgeusia. These are nerve disorders related to some medical problems I had about eight years ago. The result is that my sense of smell and taste are often times distorted and certain smells and tastes don't fully register (or are just terrible). Believe it or not, this has been...
