I'm the user formerly known as md5sum, for those who wonder.

Currently, I'm a developer in the Property & Casualty Insurance division of Accenture Software.

I started playing with GWBASIC on our Commodore Colt at around 5 years old, and it was all downhill from there. I have now been programming professionally since 2005 and have several more years of part-time/freelance programming under my belt as well.

Currently, I'm specialized in C#, ASP.Net 2.0, and MSSQL, but my work experience is quite broad, including C++, PHP, Javascript, WPF, VB6, VB.Net, ASP.Net, MySQL, and I've dabbled in many others.

comment How long should I wait with eating after an exercise?
If you're on a ketogenic diet, you don't need the carbohydrates at all. You can refuel using fat and protein only. I know several athletes who haven't really eaten carbohydrates in years (they do eat very small portions of green, leafy vegetables). No bread, no fruit, no potatoes or corn.

comment Pushing past a weight plateau?
@Jeremy Likness - I just don't get hungry, even if I eat nothing for several days. That was why I suggested not cutting at all as long as she's still losing inches, even if she's not losing weight. I understand how frustrated people get with being hungry and not losing weight, so as long as one is still finding noticeable loss either in inches or weight I advise them to continue what's working, rather than changing something up.

comment How long should I wait with eating after an exercise?
@Greg - I would agree that it is dependent on the food, but digestion begins immediately, and much sugar can be absorbed into the bloodstream in a matter of a few minutes after eating or drinking (a significant portion of a piece of candy can be absorbed in a matter of about 5 minutes). If you want to maximize lean muscle, avoiding non-fiber carbohydrates while the body is still in high gear is essential.

comment Is it necessary to have a rest week?
@kjy112 - you may very well put on a small amount of weight. You're giving your body a rest to rehydrate and rebuild everything, which may add to your total weight. It is unlikely that you will put on any significant amount, though.

comment Protein of red and white meat
@Greg - yes, but you'll get even more protein with almost all your fat intake as well (although I will say with things like butter you won't get much). And yes, overeating another substance to compensate will almost always throw something else off (like the omega-6 from vegetable oils).

comment How does one properly 'cool down'?
The typically suggested "cool down" for weight lifting is a short cardio workout (stationary bike, treadmill, etc).
