comment How big is a “cup” in MyFitnessPal?
The "cup" is a standard US measuring cup. That does not mean that user A didn't cram it completely full, and user B had a lot of space. Your best bet is to look at the US food database and get your calories from there. Slightly more work, but infinitely better results.

comment What causes fatigue and light head when running?
@MR04 - Not really, no. Not as a daily standard, anyway.

comment What causes fatigue and light head when running?
When do you run in relation to your mealtimes? As @SeanDuggan says, first thought is low blood sugar, second thought is lack of proper breathing (Barring some congenital defect, of course).

comment Breathing during running
@Alec - I know it's a summary, and I would like to read further, I just don't have access to that particular site. Unfortunately, all the summary says is that they infer there is a link in humans because other mammals adapted it. I would be interested in seeing if they address the fact that humans are the only mammals (that I am aware of) that exercise and run for sport, and if that makes a difference.

comment Is it okay to eat after exercising?
This is a misinterpretation of the timing recommended to consume carbohydrates with some protein to restore muscle glycogen. As can be seen in studies like this, a 3:1 carb to protein ratio is ideal for replenishing muscle glycogen. Supplement companies jumped on this and push the misinformation as @Alec stated. This more applies to endurance exercise than it does to weightlifting types of exercise.

comment Breathing during running
@Alec - Hard to say what's to counter. It was something published in sciencemag (Not a recognized journal) 30 years ago, and the abstract says "Hey, there might be a link in humans because other mammals evolved it". If you have a source or copy for the full article, I'd love to read it.

comment Breathing during running
This is the right answer. Just breathe as you need to. Don't worry about strides, or timing, whatever. Just breathe.

comment Only eating 3X a week but working out 6 days a week?
@Jason - Yes, that's the thermic effect of food. Somewhere around 5-10% of calories consumed IIRC. And he won't burn muscle until he runs out of fat stores.

Rotate how? Are you able to grab with a hand on either side (much like you would a pole vault pole)?

comment How reliable is this study for the relationship between heart rate and calories burned?
@Frisbee - It's still lactate, ethanol, CO2 and H2O, but it can be converted back into pyruvate or glucose for fuel use. The lactate threshold is where exercise is intense enough that it starts to accumulate in the blood rather than being carried off. This is different for everyone, and can be influenced/increased by specific training.
