As a Dad of two cross country runners I have seen the late summer enthusiasm turn to shin splints and stress fractures. I would recommend slowing adding onto your running volume. Remember that speed is a small part of your workout routine and running fast alone is not the only thing. You should have easy days following your hard days as well as one day were ...

Any diet you'll adopt just to lose fat (in given time) eventually will fail. The only way out of this is to work on your own habits which include both food and lifestyle changes, not temporary but for good! Your body needs calories, but needs the right type. Mediterranean diet (or lifestyle) includes multiples of good (vegetables) and bad food (e.g. pasta ...

Just give it a try, but don't do it just the next day. Give your body at least one day to recover before doing a high intensive training. Start running with a speed you think you can run the whole distance. If you feel good after the first half you can go a little bit faster. If you feel bad, run slower. Edit: Most important thing is to listen to your own ...

If this was a one-off, perhaps you don't need to do worry about it. However, if situations like these repeat themselves, it might be a good idea to simply observe, for a time, your eating habits and think about what might trigger these hunger attacks. (What follows are two observations of my own. They might or might not fit your sitation; please judge for ...

Eating large volumes of food will increase the size of your stomach temporarily, one of the many things that affect hunger is stomach emptiness, which will be the state of your stomach after eating a lot the night before.

Normal urea color differs between transparent to yellow. The color of the urea is not relevant in the yellow perspective. Red, blue, purple, brown/orange, black are all urine colors denoting some sort of disease/injury process. You just drink much if you have transparent urea - good thing! Your kidneys are working well. If you suspect you have some ...

Our mind doesn't know that we live in a time when getting food isn't an issue. It still believes there is a good chance for famine. Because of this your body wants to store fat for when the inevitable famine arrives. Your body prefers to use the quick energy provided by sugar(processed carbs). We have to train our body to use fat for energy by reducing the ...

A lot of people find it easy to lose weight with a keto (lchf) diet, but it doesn't work for everyone, you'll have to find what works best for you. The type of people that seems to have most luck eating keto are the ones with disturbed carbohydrate metabolism, i.e. those with high insulin resistance, i.e. often those with lots of visceral fat, those who are ...

Your body has to convert calories to something it can use, whether that be glucose or fat. If calories are converted to glucose, your body is going to burn it off (or it goes to the toilet). When calories are stored as fat, it takes longer for your body to access that energy because it now has to convert stored fat to glucose. This makes a person feel ...

If you burn 2000 calories a day and eat 2000 calories a day, 1500 of which you eat before bed, your body composition will remain constant. There's no fooling thermodynamics.

First, micronutrient deficiency is very rare, it's mostly something that vitamin pill manufacturers are scaring people with. But it can't hurt, right? Except that in total, we are wasting billions of dollars on something has most often has no effect. There are possible exceptions though, people with very bad eating habits (like only eating pasta), ...

He can gain excess because of insulin. And of course the way insulin works has been exploited by bodybuilders seeking to increase muscle mass. So where one wishing to reduce their weight may want to eat their last meal several hours prior to entering REM sleep, a bodybuilder may actually consume two pre-retirment meals (setting an alarm clock four hours in ...

My claim: Night eating by itself does result in more weight gain than daytime eating. Night eating often means you eat something additional, more than you need, which can result in weight gain. Study 1. Night eating and weight change in middle-aged men and women. Pubmed Night eating was not associated with later weight gain, except among already ...

Please understand that online calculators get you in the ballpark, but not much more than that. You will always have to fine-tune the numbers based on trial and error. However, the process is not that scary. Your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) or more accurately RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) is a measure of how many calories your body uses when doing ...

A normal multivitamin is enough. You should be more concerned with your caloric intake and your macronutrient split. Your caloric intake should be at least the number of calories you burn. (There are calculators for that on the internet.) And your macronutrient split is the percentage of calories that come from protein, glucose (sugar), and fat. For ...

Your diet doesn't look too bad, but extra care has to be taken by vegetarians, especially since you are using a protein powder. Traditional vegetarian diets normally include fermented products, for example yogurt, to ensure an adquate supply of B12. I recommend you join one of the many websites which provide dietary analysis (eg nutritiondata.com), and enter ...

I'm now around 200 pounds at 5'10"... but I want to take off 30 pounds Sounds like a reasonable goal. I'm going to start swimming (an hour of intense swimming) in the mornings again. Sounds like a reasonable way to achieve that goal. Should I add more calories to my diet to keep up the energy level? Danger! Your diet looks fine as it is, you ...

Though this is a bit off topic, I was interested so I did some research. There are a number of scholarly articles on the subject (actually, this is a just a small subset -- look for yourself). Let me summarize some for you: Red meat consumption and mortality: results from 2 prospective cohort studies: (source) Red meat consumption is associated with ...

My search results cannot produce any scientific studies of the kind you seek. However, the best explanations for the link between red meat and cancer (http://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/Red-meat-and-colon-cancer.shtml), suggest that the link is not body fat. Eating lean portions would not make much difference. Fibre seems to moderate the cancerous ...

The main reason for avoiding high glycemic foods, is to avoid the risk of high triglycerides, which tends to result in accumulation of body fat (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11602065). Foods that are high in fat, also lead to an increase in blood triglycerides (http://www.webmd.com/cholesterol-management/lowering-triglyceride-levels). Accordingly, if ...
