comment What is an ideal visceral fat percentage?
How the heck did a trainer at the gym measure your visceral fat? Do they have a MRI or CAT machine?

comment Why does my whey protein make me feel so awful?
100% means everything that is not the container or the label on that container is whey protein. Anything else is a lie. If it actually means that 95% of the content is 100% whey isolate, then the label should say "95% whey isolate". Yes, that is slightly ambiguous: is it whey that was 95% isolated? Or is it whey that was isolated 100% and then had other things added? Still, the honest number is 95 either way.

Looking at the website, Dymatize ISO-100 claims to be "100% whey isolate", yet the label on the container says "Gourmet Chocolate". How the hell do you get 100% whey to exhibit the flavor of chocolate?

comment Why do I get more tired by walking than by running
I have done breathing experiments where I have tried breathing in the same pattern while walking as I do while running. I found it was difficult to breathe once per 32 steps while walking, whereas I can easily do that at my easiest running pace. And consider that the walking steps are shorter: there is more of them in a mile! So, I clearly have to breathe more times in a mile when I walk that mile than if I run it, which quite probably correlates with more oxygen use.

comment Why do I get more tired by walking than by running
Walking is inefficient. It uses more oxygen and calories per mile than running the same distance. Or at least, than running the same distance in a particular way---you can run in a deliberately inefficient manner, like using very tiny steps. People don't naturally do that; they find an efficient way, especially with the help of training.

comment Will the starvation mode /muscle loss happen if I eat just enough to keep me not hungry?
"Feel not hungry" is too subjective. For instance, there are drugs that will make you feel "not hungry". Eating some tiny snack when you're not hungry can stimulate hunger.

comment Not breathing enough, lack of continuous breath, shallow breath - what to do to fix it?
Is this related to exercise somehow? Since you're not dead, you're obviously not failing to breathe. Shallow breathing is doing its job for you. Are you not able to meet specific fitness goals due to breathing issues?

comment How to compensate for elevation gains in a road bike challenge?
Since your power comes through the real wheel, I don't see how you lose power from being tilted nose up a little bit. You lose control though. I regularly climb a 30% hill which has my front wheel coming off the ground if I don't lean on it. The thrust isn't affected either way, though.
