In winter you also want clothes that keep you just warm enough so you don't sweat and/or clothing that wicks away the sweat from your body. In winter, sweat = wet = cold.

comment What is the best pre-workout supplement for long distance running?
+1 to 'I would look to actual food for a pre-workout supplement'. You need lots of stored energy to sustain prolonged activity. Otherwise, you'll hit 'the wall'. Personally, I suggest spaghetti the night before so the energy will be readily available when you wake up.

comment Am I taking too many vitamins and supplements?
-1 Your body only gets rid of the extra if the vitamin is water soluble. Fat soluble vitamins OTOH are accumulated in your body's tissue and don't get flushed if you take too much the same way that water soluble vitamins do. Google 'hypervitaminosis'.

comment Is it normal when starting squats to not have flexible enough ankles?
You could be flatfooted, or may have a slight muscle imbalance caused by the shoes you wear.

comment Is “Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It” thesis correct?
@Joe lol... Actually, no. I was just responding directly to the passage the OP quoted. Maybe I'll check it out to see if I could learn something new.

comment Strengthening neck and shoulders to hold weight on my head
+1 for headstands. Wearing a helmet makes it more comfortable to do for longer periods of time. Kinda like what BBoys use while practicing headspins. While on your head you can also do cor strengthening exercises using your legs.

comment How to maximize mitochondrial biogenesis?
+1 Great answer. I wonder how an increase in mitochondria mass relates to the increase in anaerobic threshold you get from high intensity anaerobic workouts. I know that blood lactate saturation is an indicator that whatever byproducts of work that cause fatigue are building up faster than they can be processed. Could mitochondrial mass be used as a deciding factor to determine fatigue resistance while doing anaerobic work? Or, is it just one small piece to the greater physiological puzzle.

comment Tips to lose fat without running, jogging etc (have bad knee)
@Berin I only mentioned thermodynamics to try to bring the comments back on topic (since that's what this answer is really addressing). I think you're confusing BMR with caloric expenditure. BMR is energy used when you're in a resting state (lying down doing absolutely nothing). To say your calorie deficit increased even when you were doing absolutely nothing active just because you had more muscle mass is a pretty controversial statement. I'm not saying it isn't plausible, I'd just like to see factual proof (not anecdotal).
