comment What is the most optimum way to get best results out of protein shakes?
Half portion of what is said on your protein can. Typically 1 scoop = 1 portion. "Amino acids" are building blocks of muscle fiber.

comment Why do so many fitness websites still reference somatotypes?
@JohnP: it says that there is no proven link between body type and personal traits and intellect. I don't see where it says that body metabolism is proven to not be hereditary.

@TonyArra: I am not a geneticist nor a biologist, so I have to trust the scientific authority blindly, which is why in lieu of own insight I provide this link: genome.gov/DNADay/q.cfm?aid=5366&year=2005

Care to provide a link to a study? Preferably the one that found near-zero correlation between metabolism characteristics of parents and kids.

comment Why do so many fitness websites still reference somatotypes?
@JohnP: there was a study recently that basically said that people who are not predisposed to being good at painting never become good at painting. Sometimes those excuses are valid. Even if you prove that body type is a social construct, people who are predisposed to being lazy will invent new ones :)

comment Why do so many fitness websites still reference somatotypes?
IMO, these are merely handy terms used by the websites without the implications of the original theory. Those who are genetically predisposed to being thin may be called ectomorphic instead of «people who tend to be thin naturally». It does not mean that people who say that also imply that the naturally thin person is also an anxious introverted intellectual. Or at least it appears so.

comment Is it fine to train in the sauna?
My guess is that overheating is bad and you may pass out. Your post begs the question: WHY would you want to do that?..

comment Are carbs the enemy?
Everything is good in moderation, and all diets, including no-carbs ones, require accomodation. If you cut off simple carbs abruptly you may actually start eating more because satiety is a complex thing and fats alone are often not enough for it. You may eat a plate of meat and feel full yet still hungry.

comment Cause and prevention of post-race headache
My experience: I only get a headache when I'm underhydrated, and for me 20+ km distances require more water per km than shorter ones. Will you get headaches if you drink, say, twice as much water?

comment How much fiber should I (not) eat?
If this statement was made in relation to fiber consumption, then it is partially true: very little dietary fiber is processed by human bowels, if any.

comment How much fiber should I (not) eat?
@Informaficker: «what isn't needed simply gets through untouched» — this is a dangerous assumption. I am seeing it quite often on the internet and I am not sure where it comes from, but it contradicts reality: people who eat more than they need become obese.

comment Should I run everyday or alternate days and run longer?
I'd go with 50 minutes 3 days a week (actually I run 80 minutes 1 or 2 days a week). This enables you to burn more fat because AFAIK you don't start burning fat in significant amounts until your glycogen stores are depleted, which happens after 30-40 minutes of jogging. Also you save some preparation and setting down time.
