Adding ice to a protein shake could temporarily change the state of certain fats (i.e. from liquid to solid), but this does not change how hard it is to burn off the fat once it's in your body. Firstly, by the time fats get absorbed into the body from the digestive tract, they have likely been heated to body temperature. Secondly, regardless of the state of ...


Cooking (whether baking, frying, grilling, or using a microwave) has a nominal effect on the nutritional value of foods. Using the uncooked data for calculating the post frying impact is fine.


Your questions suggest to me that you have not done major distance on an elliptical machine (or the road) before.

Right supplements can actually save you money, if approached in a smart way. A chicken breast that has 20g of protein costs 1-2 euros depending what you are buying. A serving of protein costs ...


Congratulations! I am doing the same thing although I am starting with a half marathon. I am new to running for long periods of time. I made sure I had a good base running of 30 minutes four days per week before I started the training for the half. I then picked a half 12 week training program for a half marathon that slowly increases by distance each ...
