comment Optimum heart rate for fat loss
This article has a few studies to look at. canute1.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/… Key point: "For the long distance runner, even more crucial is the need to develop resistance against fatigue."

comment When I workout, do my guts grow, too?
Forgive my ignorance, but even if it did cause your intestines to grow, what perceived benefit/risk is that? 9 times out of 10, when your weight increases it is either due to muscle mass or fat mass. These are the two most dynamically changing systems in your body.

comment Optimum heart rate for fat loss
Yes, but there are still trade-offs. The type of endurance required for a marathon is quite different than the type of endurance offered by HIIT.

comment Should milk be completely avoided during weight-loss work-outs?
The only thing I would add is that fat has more Calories per gram (9 Cals/gram Fat). As long as you don't consume too many Calories, eating a high fat diet isn't going to derail your dieting efforts.

comment Does food temperature affect absorption time and efficieny?
I wonder for how long the food stays at that temperature. I would imagine that by the time the food hit your intestines (where absorption happens), it has normalized to the body's temperature.

comment Training on the border of overtraining
An MMA fighter isn't deadlifting 600lbs. They aren't squatting 600lbs. They aren't benching 500lbs. Mainly because the effort to do that doesn't justify the minimal edge it gives you in a fight. Instead, they spend some time on strength, and most of the time on conditioning and skill work.

comment What are the pros and cons of these 3 types of dumbbells?
When comparing just the handles at $35 to handles and some weights for $50, it seems like a good starter set. Not sure you can get 40lb of weights for $15.
