comment What is the reason to weigh oneself during a workout?
Just one? On any antidiuretic hormone, water I&O has to be monitored to prevent water toxicity. CHF, early renal failure, a few others.

-1. Fat loss and fat gain do not happen "overnight".

comment Nutrition: I consume about 250g of maltodextrin daily. Possible negative effects?
@Mårten - Understood. I just wanted the clarification, as it made it sound as if fructose itself was bad, which isn't the case.

comment Are there people who aren't destined to be runners(competive or leisure but not pro) and others not ? If not why?
@user13232 - I'm just trying to get you to admit facts. You are a 5'10" female that is 260 lbs. By every calculator or chart out there you are either morbidly obese or teetering on the edge of it. If you face reality rather than perception, you will be happier and healthier in the long run. I wish you luck on your journey.

@Mårten - As an addititve. Fructose in its natural form (main sugar in fruits) has different effects in the body.

comment Cell Death and muscle synthesis
No, it's not going to work the way you are thinking. But you are free to whack yourself with a stick to create bruises and give it a try :) (That was sarcasm, please don't whack yourself with sticks).

@user13232 - I'm sorry you don't like it, but that's the classification you fall under. Morbidly obese is classified as 100 lbs over ideal weight, BMI of 40+, or BMI of 35+ with health problems. Even for a "large frame", your ideal weight is listed as 149-170 as a 5'9" female. (Close to 5'10 still puts you as 5'9). So even at the top end of the chart, you are 90 lbs overweight, and a bmi of 36. That either puts you as morbidly obese or teetering on the edge of it. The "couch to 5k" is a common running program for people to get to a basic running fitness from nothing. It's a name, nothing more.

@s3v3ns - Read what I wrote. Bone weight differences from small to medium to large is not as big as people think it is. Yes, larger frame people weigh more, but that is more due to larger muscles and other flesh than it is due to the bones themselves. A femur that is 18" long is very close in weight to a femur that is 22" long.

comment Taking 'salt tablets' when running longer distances
@KristianBright - I would echo rrirower's suggestion. Don't do anything new on race day, and experiment during your workouts. Also pay attention to fluid intake, one of the biggest things I've seen in triathletes is they add salt, forget to drink more and end up in worse shape from stomach ills.

First, a slight misconception. "Bigger bones" is an excuse. You may have a taller frame at 5'10" than most females, but that is a very small (in the order of a pound or two) difference from someone that is 5'4" as far as bone size/weight. At your height and weight, you are morbidly obese. Your first order of business is a doctor visit and weight loss. I'm sorry to be so blunt, but you need to worry about basic health and weight first. Once you get that under control, I would recommend a couch to 5k program, and progress from there.

And I know there are tons of people out there that absolutely believe that electrolyte imbalances cause cramps, and salt supplementation is the answer, but none of that has been proven yet. It's still all in the realm of "it may help".

I'll take a scientific study over a generic blog that can't even get nutritionist spelled right, thanks.
