comment Losing body fat
@alexheslop1 - For cardio, once he gets a little bit active cycling and swimming are both great activities as they are mostly non weight bearing. However, this does not promote muscle growth/retention as much as weight bearing activities do, so a mix with the stuff that Berin recommends would be a good course of action.

@DarkoSarovic - Thanks! I figured there had to be a rationale behind it.

@Kneel-Before-ZOD - There was a study I found on horses that when they were running, it reduced their stomach volume by close to 80%. :)

comment how much size can you gain?
You are not an ectomorph. Those body classifications have been debunked.

comment Losing body fat
While the recommendations are good, there are a couple flags. The age, the family history, and the desire to lose 25 lbs in 5 weeks. All these add up to someone that is a candidate for a cardiac incident. I would highly recommend a physical before embarking on this.

comment Regurgitating during exercise
Why no exercise longer than 1 hour, and why no food for an hour before? These are highly individual recommendations.

comment What effect does restricted oxygen in cardio have on muscle damage & repair?
If the bike sprint is the same intensity, it is anaerobic as well. Or, (and much more likely) your swim is actually aerobic, not anaerobic. Oxygen deficit does not mean anaerobic.

comment How does muscle confusion work?
Point to the cognitive (thinking) part of a muscle that can get confused. No? There's your answer.

What did your own GP say when you asked him?

So your solution to an OT question is to give him a generic calculator that he has to play guessing games with to get to work?

comment Whey protein intake and side effects
Your questions are straight nutrition, which is off topic for the site.

comment Running shoes: are EVA soles that bad?
And there are a couple class action lawsuits on the minimalist footwear, and studies are showing increased injury rates with chi/pose/forefoot running fads.

If you read my entire comment, I agreed with you but can't retract until edited.

comment FitBit and kayaking
The device is tuned to detect acceleration and stop motion. Hence how a bumpy road will register and carpet may not. Also, the website states that it can be used for other activities, it just may lose some accuracy. I do see your point, but the vote can't be retracted unless you edit. :p

@LarissaGodzilla - "Too broad" and/or "opinion based". IIRC, I think this was already closed and reopened.

comment FitBit and kayaking
How were you "kayaking" for that 10k? Were you actually floating down a river? Where was the fitbit located?
