comment D-Ribose and keto
Can you outline how this will help your workout plan, or anything about your workouts? Otherwise it is nutrition and off topic. On a side note, you do know that ketogenic diets were developed primarily to help control epilepsy and other metabolic diseases, and their efficacy in weight loss is somewhat unproven and tenuous?

comment Does Potassium Deficiency Really Cause Cramps?
@Tracyat2bactive - I see. You're referring to secondary cramps, not idiopathic. Yes, there are several known disease states that cause muscle cramps, I don't there has been any correlation (yet) to fatigue/exercise type cramps.

comment Is it possible to practice freestyle breathing with a kick board?
@Noumenon - Just practice breathing. Once you get more into swimming without the kickboard, you'll run into situations where you off time it a bit and have to breathe around water. Get comfortable swimming first. :)

comment How much running is advisable for over weight person?
And you were doing so well until the last sentence. Do you have any backup for your claim that swimming burns more fat than running?

comment Almond Bread vs Gain Based Bread
This is off topic for the site, but all carbohydrates (Except for non digestible fiber) break down to sugar (glucose).

comment Muscle size reduction sans loss
I would highly recommend you talk with people (Such as @LarissaGodzilla) that have the same issues, and possibly a mental health professional to guide you through this. Unfortunately, I think this is more an attitude/approach rather than a physical problem. I wish you luck with your quest.

comment Am I in a so-called “good running form”?
@inquisitiveIdiot - His distance is fine for the 5k. Most high school x-country are doing about that much. 10k and up he would need to greatly increase his weekly mileage.

comment Am I in a so-called “good running form”?
@RenéVanBelzen - Your trainer is correct, as "mid distance" on the track is the 800m, 1500m, mile and possibly stretched to the steeplechase. That is much different training than road.

@DanAndrews - I agree. Also, what may be ideal for person A, may not necessarily be ideal for person B.

comment What is the difference between rest and sleep? Can inactivity replace sleep?
There are certain kinds of meditation that can temporarily replace the need for as much sleep, but eventually the body needs sleep, dreaming and rem cycles to continue to function rationally.

You're extrapolating. And badly at that.

comment Food prior to intense cardio
Dehydration causes dizziness, and this has been known for decades. That has nothing to do with the level of electrolytes.

comment Food prior to intense cardio
Do you have a source that backs up the electrolyte causing dizziness claim?

comment Ideal Human Nutrition for athletic ability and longevity
Mmm...it's borderline. If you could add something about your current running routine and wanting to support that + healthy life it would be better. It's still a good question as it, but adding that would definitely push it on topic.

comment Why is my swimming fitness so much worse than my cycling and running fitness?
If your technique is good, then breathing is nearly as natural as it is for running or other sports.
