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.

comment Does HIIT induce weight loss without loss of muscle
Also as an FYI, the body classifications of ecto/meso/endomorph have pretty much been debunked.

comment Road bicycles for weight loss
@Jaydee - energy (kcal) = avg power (W) X duration (hours) X 3.6. That's been a commonly measured and accepted formula for a while. You multiply by 3.6 because human efficiency on a bike is 20-25% (Again, extensively measured and commonly accepted). While it is not exact as multiplying it out, the common usage is to multiply the watts readout (technically it's measured in kj) x 4 to get your calorie expenditure for whatever amount of time.

comment Sticking it out for longer
Slow down. You're running 6 minute mile pace. Try running at a 7 minute/mile pace for 30 minutes. For endurance exercise, you shouldn't be "breathing really hard".

comment How many pounds of water retention will be caused by 2300 mg of sodium?
@Noumenon - 6 lbs for 24 hours for....who? If I say that number, and someone gains 10 lbs, they will freak and wonder what's wrong. Or wonder why they only gain 2 lbs. The only answer is that it's transitory and doesn't matter. Scale watchers should watch trends, not day to day fluctuations. And the reason I vtc and answered is that I don't think the question is a good one for the site, but if it's going to remain, then it should have at least an explanation of why it's not an answerable question for the masses.

comment Working out same muscle group two days in a row (or before full recovery)
@AndrewGauthier - You can't look at me, then look at soylent, and say that you will react a certain way because of that knowledge. There is simply no basis other than personal experimentation to know. I can post an answer that basically says "You have to figure it out for yourself if it will work or not", but that's a poor answer to a somewhat unanswerable question. We can certainly chat about it if you want.

comment How many pounds of water retention will be caused by 2300 mg of sodium?
@AndrewGauthier I did. I provided links for research, and outlined why it's not really an answerable question for more than one person at a time, and why it's not really a concern to begin with.

comment Working out same muscle group two days in a row (or before full recovery)
@AndrewGauthier - This is not a discussion site. This is a question and answer site. Questions that promote discussion are off topic. It's a subjective question, but it's not good subjective. Say Soylent posts an answer about how it works for him, and I post an answer saying it would destroy me to do that. How does that help answer anything?

comment How many pounds of water retention will be caused by 2300 mg of sodium?
@AndrewGauthier - You're nitpicking. Muscles respond to overload. That's a commonality to everyone. You can base reps off of maxes, etc., but it's still all overload relative to the person. It doesn't matter if person A lifts 500 lbs and person B 200 if you are both working at 15% of max, you will get the same relative effect, so an answer can be applicable to many people. Requiring a highly specific test to determine a value that varies individual by individual is entirely different. I already VTC, and just put the answer out there to show why, and why it's not really anything to worry about.
