The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Thnx sara...actually what i'd be doing was a lean gain, but the last two weeks that's been crap cause my motivation has left, so i'm stuck needing to drop about 10lbs now, so, probably starting monday i will go into diet mode and see if i can knock off this fat i've accumulated.

    Btw, welcome to my journal

    My diet could kick your diet's ass. Nevermind the fact that I'm full of it!

    Good job on the cardio! You won't find me doing that.

    pup - i found the answer to that question i was asking you, about minimizing the amount of fructose on the refeed days:

    "The primary determinate of leptin expression is glucose metabolism (41). This gives us a really good idea of the macronutrient profile of our refeed. Fat, fructose, protein, and alcohol do not have the same effect o_n leptin expression that glucose does.

    Assuming we have not created drastically low leptin levels, our refeed will be between 20 and 50% ABOVE maintenence, for 12-48 hours -- the higher the calories, the shorter the refeed -- there are arguments in support of both. If they are drastically low, 5-7 days of 20% above is recommended. In general, the lower you are below your natural bodyfat setpoint, and the longer or more drastic your diet, the more frequent the refeed.

    Because we are eating above maintence, we are most likely accepting some fat gain (though, if leptin levels are really low, the opposite could very well occur due to increases in metabolic rate as leptin is increased), so we want to get the most bang for our buck. Thus, our primary macronutrient will be carbohydrates that enter the blood as glucose -- this means glucose, glucose polymers such as maltodextrin, and starches. Insulin also potentiates glucose stimulated leptin production (13, 41), thus high GI carbs are most ideal. Protein should be 1g/lb, and a bit of fat and fructose in foods you enjoy is acceptable, but the rest is non-fructose carbohydrates. "

    if you want the whole article, drop me a PM.
