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?

comment FitBit and kayaking
You reference it being "smaller" than a step. My wife is 4'9", her steps are about the same size as I would make for a kayak sweep. Also, it's based on accelerometers, so even as the page you reference notes, riding on a bumpy road could be enough to trigger it, or walking on a plush carpet to not register.

comment Initial weight loss, followed by 2 weeks of inactivity
+1 for two good points on hydration and fat vs. muscle weight. Additionally, after hard workouts, the body may retain fluids for a few days during repair.

comment Initial weight loss, followed by 2 weeks of inactivity
@Affe - Just to clarify, 1000 calories a day of cardio is not an "insane" level. I am far from fanatic, but I do workouts 4-5 times a week that easily get into the 2-3000 range. Competitive swimmers often eat in the 8-10,000 calorie range just to maintain weight. Competitive cyclists, triathletes, many many endurance athletes at all levels have regular workout days that exceed 1000 calories.

comment Why is the weight not falling off me?
Also, -1 for too many sweeping generalizations and repetition of debunked myths (Such as "famine mode"). And, citing a wikipedia page (Already a somewhat dubious source) that glaringly states "This page has issues" probably isn't the best place to start.

comment What lifts shouldn't I do with a posterior labrum tear?
@GeoreShg - So...the entire sarcasm of the post goes over your head and you focus on a misworded title? Your question is off topic and asking for medical advice. Offering a bounty on a bad question won't help anything.

comment How to identify what type of body is yours
Proteins are better for one "body type" than another? After 30 years in exercise science and 40 in athletics, I have heard something new. Congratulations.

comment How to gain weight despite doing lots of endurance training
x2 on the tracking. You appear to only have a vague idea of how much you expend and how much you take in. (Not really a criticism, just an observation. Many people are in the same situation).

comment What are some mind tricks to eat better
VTC as being off topic for several reason. It's general health, opinion based and very broad. There isn't even an attempt at making it workout related.

comment Is gluten free diet a fad or does it have legitimate health reasons?
There's a difference between an addictive, destructive drug and a diet choice. She's saying that some people feel better on a gluten free diet, give it a try and see how you feel. Other than that, your question is off topic for the site.
