The body "selects" the substrate for fuel on the amount of time that it has to provide energy to sustain the exercise, and the amount of oxygen available to use in the conversion process. At lower intensities, fat (both stored and circulating ffa {free fatty acids}) is the preferred source, with carbohydrates in minimal proportions. As you get higher in ...

The last I heard, calcium supplements are still associated with an increased risk of heart attacks, but no increased risk of strokes or, oddly enough, death from cardiac arrest.

To make this pretty simple. There are a lot of allowances allowed by the FDA and in other countries it can be even more lax. First the companies can use basically who ever they want to do calorie/analytical analysis. They can choose from 1 of 10 reports they get to best serve their target audience. To take it another step there are also rounding ...

"Is diet soda less healthy than regular soda?" Hysteria around the aspartame in diet drinks is not justified by the evidence It is quite hard to prove a negative but the simple observation that hundreds of millions of people take aspartame containing drinks every day without apparently causing any notable epidemiological evidence of all the effects ...

40 grams of fat would be 360 calories, which is a little more than 10% of your 3200 calories. That's not a bad range to be in, although it might be a little bit on the low side. Fat serves a lot of different purposes in the body, including insulation, shock absorption and energy storage. The most important thing about fat, however, is that the vitamins A, ...
