comment Can the proteins in Whey protein contribute to nasal allergies?
Many food allergies manifest themselves as the symptoms of hay fever so I'm hoping thats it. I'll post my results once I'm a few weeks into making the switch. My hay fever at the moment is terrible and anti-histamines do nothing.

comment Can the proteins in Whey protein contribute to nasal allergies?
Thank you for the intelligent and thoughtful answer. People with a cursory understanding of dairy allergies usually immediately confuse it with lactose intolerance (which is caused by a gene (correctly) switching off after we are weened from breast milk). As I understand it, most allergies are your bodies (incorrect) immune response to proteins. People can be mildly allergic to milk (often without knowing it). As vegetable proteins are unpalatable I might try whey protein derived from a2 milk (eliminates a1 beta-casein which many milk allergies originate from).

comment How much cardio to lose body fat fast and healthy
Nathan it is more complicated. One such example is the body adjusting it's metabolism to 'hold on' to fat whilst being forced into a catabolic state. The metabolism of the 3 different food groups is also very different. You also have brought into consideration the alternative energy source the body can use for energy - ketones. When switching from a glucose based energy system to a ketone based energy system you can typically consume excess calories which merely get secreted in the urine.

comment Are Body proportions Charts Realistic?
I'm not sure why you are so worried about your proportions when you are quite fat. I wouldn't discuss proportional aesthetics until you are at least < 13% - preferably 10.
