comment Tabata calorie burn with 4 minute excersie
The additional 150 calories over 12 hours is a bit of an overestimation. IIRC when I looked at it, it was in the order of 25-50 calories over 24ish hours.

comment Road Cycling on a Gravel Path
Impossible to really tell. If you increase your effort, it won't take anything away from speed. Other than that, the condition of the road will dictate how much speed will change. Use the same effort and see what happens to your speed, that will tell you.

comment Replacement for chicken breast for high protein?
@user10019 - Milk calories are almost all sugar based. Overloading on calcium can cause liver problems and kidney stones. (1 gal milk has 4x recommended daily calcium). It's high in saturated fat/cholesterol, as well as sodium. It's only "designed" to be done for a month or two at the most, so yes, fad/gimmick. Plus, you can't gain muscle at that rate, so the majority of the "bulking" will be fat and water gain.

comment What happens if don't consume enough fat?
@claws - You know that FUPA is a made up derogatory term, right? And no, if you need fat in your diet to transport the vitamins. Your body won't "pull fat" into the intestine to transport them. And I hate to tell you, but if the "only way" to get all your vitamins in a day is by supplements, your diet sucks.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from any fad/gimmick things like GOMAD.

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 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.

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

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.
