Any diet that relies on removing an entire category of food is dumb and potentially harmful.

Not sure why this is downvoted? The question is off topic, but this is good, solid advice.

comment Does training > 75% MHR benefit aerobic base?
@Joe - 220-age is one of the worst myths in exercise science. Do one of the field stress tests that you can monitor either yourself or with a friend and a stopwatch. You'll get much better results, especially if you repeat at 3 or 6 month intervals.

How did you determine your MHR? And if you say anything other than a ECG monitored clinical stress test, your MHR is at best a guess.

comment Vitamins: How much is too much?
This is off topic for the site, but I would encourage you to look at some of the recent studies done on OTC vitamin supplements and their composition.

This is both too broad, will be mostly opinion based, and there are multiple questions within one.

comment What is the reason to weigh oneself during a workout?
Just one? On any antidiuretic hormone, water I&O has to be monitored to prevent water toxicity. CHF, early renal failure, a few others.

comment Nutrition: I consume about 250g of maltodextrin daily. Possible negative effects?
@Mårten - Understood. I just wanted the clarification, as it made it sound as if fructose itself was bad, which isn't the case.

comment Are there people who aren't destined to be runners(competive or leisure but not pro) and others not ? If not why?
@user13232 - I'm just trying to get you to admit facts. You are a 5'10" female that is 260 lbs. By every calculator or chart out there you are either morbidly obese or teetering on the edge of it. If you face reality rather than perception, you will be happier and healthier in the long run. I wish you luck on your journey.

@Mårten - As an addititve. Fructose in its natural form (main sugar in fruits) has different effects in the body.

comment Cell Death and muscle synthesis
No, it's not going to work the way you are thinking. But you are free to whack yourself with a stick to create bruises and give it a try :) (That was sarcasm, please don't whack yourself with sticks).
