comment Ensuring the body burns fat instead of muscle?
The 'growl' feeling is simply your stomach shrinking/contracting as it empties. It has no relationship to hunger.

comment Ensuring the body burns fat instead of muscle?
Also, lactic acid isn't the cause of cramps. The body produces more lactic acid to combat acidosis in the muscles (ie lactic acid is a good thing). The concept that higher concentration of lactic acid in blood being the cause of cramps was a simple example of coorelation != causation. Science has since overturned that claim.

comment What can I do to limit shin splints?
I disagree that an 'anterior footstrike pattern' reduces injuries. I naturally have an anterior footstrike (ie supinated) running pattern and as a result have suffered greatly from shin splints in the past. If the OP has a similar gait, the best option would be to try 'forefoot running' instead. runblogger.com/2012/03/…

comment What is the purpose of 'cooling down'?
I thought that was the point of HIIT. Push until you're pumped but not until failure, reduce intensity until recovered, and repeat. It kinda goes against the traditional philosophy that high intensity exercise should always be done until failure but it works surprisingly well.

comment What is the purpose of 'cooling down'?
Couldn't have said it better myself. You say cooling down has no positive affect on DOMS. Wouldn't light/moderate activity following higher intensity activity keep circulation elevated to assist in processing the leftover waste products?

comment How to gain weight without supplements and non veg
Welcome to Physical Fitness. Writing personal anectodes is perfectly fine but perhaps you could modify your answer to reach a wider audience. For instance, why does your specific diet and exercise regime lead to the results the Op is looking for?

comment What is the best way to cool down after a workout?
Get one of these youtube.com/watch?v=e8J6ov48rG0. Personally, my favorite way to bring my core temp down is a nice/relaxing swim in a pool.

comment My legs still ache 3-4 days after legs day
Just google 'DOMS vs injury'. There's plenty to read on the topic. In short DOMS = good & injury = bad.
