    I was reading on the avant labs forum and I think twinlabs has a product that is something like 87.5% calories coming from EPA/DHA. Most of the good pills on the market seem to hover around 50%...

    Unless cod liver oil has benefits other than those derived from epa/dha content, I would tend to think formulated fish oil pills would be a better bet.

    You get a higher concentration of EPA/DHA,...

    Re: Refeeds/Carb ups

    I have been using 6 hour, more or less uncontrolled refeeds done twice a week. I can usually eat between 700-800 grams carbs before I start feeling sick. I try to limit fat to some extent but that...

    Ok, I found a couple of threads. I recalled Par Deus having some basic recommendations on this issue.

    Here is a direct quote by Par Deus answering a random thread:

    I am not sure either. I also wonder if it is possible to change your natural setpoint (by remaining at a bodyfat level significantly below the old setpoint for an extended period of time for...

    I can't really add very much to what aka and bradley have already mentioned. I don't have much experience bulking cleanly unfortunately.

    A lot of what aka mentioned seems to relate pretty closely...

    Good point, and that is how a lot of us would like to go about it in the longrun. You could certainly make the argument that your quality of life is better. But is it the best for longevity?

    I like cottage cheese + almond butter even better than peanut butter. You can also add in some mixed nuts.

    I remember Timbo from bbing having a good frozen cottage cheese recipe too. I think it...

    Sure doesn't. I think we are in perfect agreement, just a difference in semantics.

    In a bomb calorimeter 100 kcals of olive oil would produce an identical amount of energy as 100kcals of bacon. But I don't believe that is necessarily the case in the human body. I think you have...

    Wow, thanks for the links. That is definitely a very interesting view by Lyle. I was unfamiliar with the Acylation Stimulation Protein. I was still under the 'old' impression that the lipoprotein...

    I guess I want way more explained than is possible in any one thread. What I made was an unreasonable request. I am leery of many studies and would rather hit the textbooks for the type of answer I...

    Restless, Bradley. Thanks for the replies and I'll look into what you posted asap. I am gonna be out of town at the beach for the next few days and have to head out now.

    I guess it comes down to my belief that food combos do matter. I have seen a lot of conflicting evidence coming from studies. But most larger scale studies I have looked at lose meaning imo since...

    Definitely CKD. Just cutting calories imo probably won't be as effective simply b/c it doesn't say anything about food choices/combinations/meal timing etc.

    It largely would depend on what your...

    I wouldn't start a refeed b/f an exam either. I would just bump kcals enough to avoid any problems associated with 'severe' calorie restriction. It depends on what kind of diet you are on too. On...

    I don't think 1T is enough to do much. The conversion rate from ALA->EPA/DHA in the body is not very efficient. 2-4T would be better but still a lot of kcals for what you are getting out of it imo....

    A lot of guys over at bbing.com use a weekend 12-24 hr carb load, 30grams dextrose after workouts and one midweek carb up meal with good success. I wouldn't worry too much about it =D

    My suggestion would be to stick to your CKD for at least two weeks and keep manipulating it and learning about what works best. The first part is tough for nearly everyone that does it. And judging...
