    ^^^ Zack nailed it.

    Don't kill yourself trying to do it all at once. Maybe just start with your full-body routine and moderate post-lifting HIIT, then add LISS to the off-days after a couple...

    LMAO I think a lot of you are definitely a bit on edge when it comes to my posts. For that I apologize. Just in case i haven't been clear enough: my curiosity about the effect to IGF-1 comes from...

    I did not say that he is T1D. I said that his intentional diet-inhibited insulin would be comparable to the effect of genetically-inhibited insulin in T1D. And yeah, if he somehow managed to keep...

    I can see that, but in this case I think it wouldn't be "transient" per se, but more like a permanent physiological shift. Similar to that caused by insulin deficiency in T1D. I mean, most T1D's I...

    Do you realize that you're claiming all people experience the same degree of difficulty when it comes to losing weight? I hope you didn't really mean that and just wanted to put in a quick CICO...

    Is the reason for this that the insulin spikes either increase or up-regulate IGF-1, making it a wash? Or is it more that the carbs/proteins themselves outweigh the GH hit?

    I'm trying to wrap my...

    Congrats! Now that you see the drop, maybe your calorie intake was fine all along but the scale was deceiving you. It's obviously a good idea to get more accurate with your calorie counts, but...
  • I believe glycogen synthesis is almost...

    I believe glycogen synthesis is almost exclusively driven by blood glucose and insulin levels. Your body taps into fat stores primarily for direct energy (via beta-oxidation) or to make glucose (via...

    It's always a balancing act between having enough variability throughout the week AND having a consistent set of movement patterns that you can progress on. The best thing you can do is just get on...

    Ugh here I was thinking that we were done with this thread and you had to go bump it. Sigh.




    This is not a speculative theory, but an explanation of the rationale that propagated the idea:

    I'm not 100% sure, but think it has very low effect on insulin. You probably want to go do some research into insulin itself to better understand why some foods affect it more than others. Don't...
  • GI effect very low, insulin effect pretty high. ...

    GI effect very low, insulin effect pretty high. Exact values depend on the brand, whether or not they put in any carbs, etc.

    To be clear, I don't think anybody here is suggesting that you spend time recomping. JohnProphet and I suggested that eating at maintenance for a while could help you get your metabolism up and...

    TBH if you power through the fatigue and "get used to it", your CNS will be better able to handle heavier stress in the future. I understand the frustration with not seeing muscle gains, but CNS...

    Supramax is spot on. At lower weight it is possible but awkward. At normal weight it starts to get really unwieldy. At higher weight it's pretty much impossible to get any decent grip.

    Full-body style workouts tax your CNS a lot. The fatigue you are experiencing is probably from adaptation of CNS rather than adaptation of musculature.

    It's not a terrible idea if you're young, healthy, and never really seek out medical care. But it might bite you in the ass if something unexpected happens.

    Think of it as if glycogen is your checking account and fat stores are your long-term savings account. Your paycheck is set to direct deposit into your checking account, but when the checking...
