revised ReFirm - Shrinking Fat Cells
Slight technicality - surgery reduces number, not volume.

comment ReFirm - Shrinking Fat Cells
Technically, the fat cells do "shrink". It's like a plastic grocery bag. When empty, they are "smaller" than when they are filled with stuff. The potential volume is still the same, there's just less in it. They are playing on the misconception that by "shrinking" it, it would hold less stuff later, and that's just not so.

#4 - Your question is already too broad. Nobody can tell you how much time it will take, and "resources to read" are countless.

This would appear to be health/medical related, and/or product recommendation. Both are off topic.

comment D-Ribose and keto
I have no objections to answering the question, if it is on topic. I still don't think even with the edits that it is on topic, however I'm in the minority. I'm ok with that. In the future, please keep personal asides out of your posts.

comment Ideal Human Nutrition for athletic ability and longevity
-1. There are MANY strong vegans, and many that are not annoying. Some of them are even the same people (gasp!). Also, blindly recommending "what the top athletes" are eating is spaghetti advice (Throw it at the wall and see what sticks).

comment How to reduce belly?
The "jury is not out" on running, or any other steady state cardio exercise. They all work. Both of those articles address losing weight in the context of cutting for contests while maintaining muscle, which is a limited perspective. If you want to lose weight, you expend more calories than you take in. Period.

comment D-Ribose and keto
"All of this having to do with fitness" - Possibly, but the site expects detail on HOW it relates to the fitness. As it stands, this is straight nutrition. Simply saying "Oh yeah, I work out so it will help" doesn't make it on topic.

I'm not disputing your results. Overall ketogenic diets are still a mixed bag. And drugs such has steroids will always be abused, it doesn't mean that using them for other than their intended purpose is a legitimate use. And no, adding anecdotes unrelated doesn't make it fitness related. As I said, add some of your workout routines and how you think ketogenic states will help it will bring it on topic for the site.

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. :)
