May 21, 2014 By Jay 13 Comments As a hard training fitness athlete or anyone looking to lose body fat and increase muscle, harnessing the power of your body’s insulin production is critical.
Insulin is a key to muscle growth and recovery and is also essential for nutrient uptake and protein synthesis, .
Gymnema Sylvestre-this is a potent Indian Herb which has the remarkable ability to reduce sugar cravings and reduce overall sugar levels in the blood. Chromium-this is probably the oldest known Glucose Disposal Agent and the subject of much research and controversy. Metformin-otherwise known as Glucophage is not a supplement but a potent anti-diabetic drug which is AWESOME in its ability to manage insulin resistance by lowering the amount of glucose found in the blood.
Stay tuned for an informative blog on Carb Cycling and Summer Fat Loss you won’t want to miss! I will definitely work in some intervals and power naps, in addition to throwing some cinnamon into my shakes. 1) I consume about 1000 calories of simple carbs before, during, and right after my 60′ training sessions. 3) I reduced the intensity of my cardio from HR 180 to HR 145, and made lifting the focus of my workout. My natty test is definitely high enough for gains (after purposely trying to crash it over 6 days of binge drinking with 4 hours of sleep per night it was still 585) since I am only 25, so per your and Mike’s advice I would like to lay a really solid foundation before embarking on the path of the dark side. I just purchased some Alpha Lipoic Acid as I am cutting down body fat and was wondering what the best way to use it would be. Based on this protocol, when should I take the ALA – every day or just before carb-heavy meals on training days?
From what I understand from the research, spiking your insulin with high carb meals isn’t the healthiest thing to do. Post workout, your glut4 transponders are switched to easily process carbohydrates to muscular glucose, not to store it as fat.
Read previous post:Why Low Carb Diets Lower Physical and Mental PerformanceFab Fit Over 40 with some commentary on low carb diets and why they lower physical and mental performance. I’m inappropriately excited about reviewing these Doritos 1st, 2nd and 3rd Degree chips.
But then…then, one fateful Saturday afternoon, I walked into one of the stores that had been taunting me with burns that only required aloe vera and not a trip to the hospital and what did I see…3rd DEGREE BURN, MOTHERFUCKERS! Luckily, I knew another place that also only carried the first two, so I picked those up and basked in triumph. After hearing all that, you must think I’m a fool for attempting to eat all three burns in one day. Ask me to say that again tomorrow when I’m on the toilet cursing every good thing I ever said in this review while my digestive tract stages a grassroots rebellion against Frito-Lay.
Bros, listen to me carefully… I attempted to take on the 3 degrees of hatred within my house this very evening. The 3rd degree was a whole different story… As soon as I opened that bag, and saw the fiery red coloring upon thine chips that lay within that bag, I cried. PS – All of the folks that commented are as almost as funny as you, except for Dice, who is hereby nominated by a jury of his peers to be a critically acclaimed turd.
I am totally in love with all three degrees, i dwell in the backwards state of California and was wondering if these chips are still offered else where? I love hot food and can’t seem to find the hottest, but after reading this I want to try them but then I am scared for my life. I don’t know if anyone told you this yet, Kelley, but a first degree burn is more serious than a third degree burn. Does anybody know the recipes for the 1st degree 2nd degree and 3rd degree burn flavor dust. Yogurt, kefir, tempeh, miso, coconut water, and kombucha are the types of probiotic food which should be added to your diet as these foods are filled with bacteria needed for digestion, they are effective in burning the calories you gain from fast food. Aerobic exercise is the most effective way of burning calories, if this is continued regularly over a period of time it can be very effective. In order to increase your efficiency to digest food, drink plenty of water with a combination of high fiber meals. Drinking water on an empty stomach can accelerate your metabolism which helps you lose many calories.
Exercising regularly will ensure that any excess calories or weight that you gain by having fast food is burned off.
If you find it difficult to avoid your favorite fast foods even knowing you will gain calories and weight, try to avoid cigarettes and alcohol which would help your cause. Swimming for 30-60 minutes daily can be very effective for someone who is looking to burn calories. If you find exercise boring you may want to indulge yourself in sports activities that require physical activity, burning off extra calories. Calories are burned by shivering, spending more time outside when its cold should help as well. Disclaimer: All content on this website is for informational purposes only and should not be considered to be a specific diagnosis or treatment plan for any individual situation. I am in the process of finishing this paper to help my clients understand how to lose fat successfully without having to read a novel-sized diet book (which a lot of folks just won’t do). So, you want to maximize fat loss and, at the same time, take in all of the nutrients you need to live most healthfully, right? Eating healthfully normalizes your blood sugar which in turn allows stored body fat to be used as your primary source of fuel. To lose fat successfully without losing lean tissue (muscle and bone), it’s best to eat in a manner that keeps your blood sugar levels normal and supplies you with adequate amount of quality proteins. When you keep your blood sugar normalized, this keeps your level of a hormone called insulin normal. What this means is this: the more foods you eat that raise your blood sugar, the higher you will raise your insulin levels. Believe it or not, you now know more than what 95% of all registered dieticians know on how lipids (fat) are stored and used for fuel.
You should strive to take in at least 1 gram of quality protein per pound of lean body weight. For example, if you’re lean body weight is 100 pounds, you want to take in about 100 grams of fatty protein per day. You could also drink a protein shake of your choice – preferably one that is low in carbohydrates. So remember, eating refined carbs like bread, pasta, bagels, cakes, cookies and other starch-based carbs like rice, potatoes, oatmeal, beans, etc. Replacing these foods with high quality fatty proteins like lamb, salmon, beef, eggs, chicken, turkey, pork, etc., and leafy greens and other vegetables tells your body to release fat from your fat cells to be used as fuel and build muscle, bone and other vital tissues. I've been involved in exercise ever since I became a member of The Charles Atlas Club when I was 10 years old.


By the way thanks for resetting the links to 5 – unfortunately it makes no difference so you might as well set it back to a more spam free 2. So you see, just lifting the heaviest weight you can is not the intended goal for the typical person, nor is it necessary to derive the immense benefits that RT can bestow. It is typically believed that at least three sets using high loads (mostly ?80% 1 RM) and low repetitions (5-9) per set are best to increase muscle strength (32,48), whereas lower loads (50%-70%) and higher repetitions (9-19) are best to increase muscular endurance. Then perhaps a different name should be used for it, but it would still remain the same temporary phenomenon. What low-carb doctors are warning is that any given-sized carb load will cause a greater blood-sugar rise (total area under the curve) if eaten with fat.
Fred, my personal guru Dr Graham notes that humans are actually better suited to consuming fruit sugars (as fruit, not as concentrates) than fattists make out – its when you add fat that sugar processing becomes a problem, in short the modern epidemic of fatties is due to fat and sugar. Amongst athletes the main goal is to improve the muscles’ force curves for various sports. The answer is that if you are consuming less than 80% carbs, that you protein and fats must be correspondingly higher. And once AGAIN you have failed to answer my question as to who is stronger – the man who can to 10+ one arm pullups with either arm or you. Fred, I’ve explained at length a million times already that I can do the top half of a one arm chin-up despite hardly ever doing chin-ups.
Fred, so far in these comments you have compared me to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dorian Yates (elite bodybuilders), John Brzenk and Allen Fisher (elite armwrestlers) and then scoured the internet for a top performer in the one arm pull-up. A Juan, I have had both my kneecaps replaced by bottletops due to kung-fu so cannot squat! I told you Juan that I cannot even get out of a chair by myself and my children have to feed me. Q:Now, if your so strong, how come you can’t do a single one arm pullup even though you can squat 40,000 pounds and lift cars over your head?
Fred, first I would have to decondition your mind to HIT, so far this has taken over a decade and shown no sign of success. Then I would have to teach you about special strength training and periodisation, by which time you would be even more old and decrepit, so much so that it would be of no use to you. As a former collegiate gymnast I can tell you that one arm pull ups are easily performed by short men with very little body fat, and damn near impossible for tall people regardless of the type of training because of the lever length of the arms. Yes it’s true and this morning when I awoke, I found myself incapable of getting out of bed.
I think there should be a sarcasm font, so slow people would know when you’re making fun of their arguments. Glucose disposal agents (GDAs) are supplements which help the body break down carbs and then store them in the form of muscle glycogen. It’s a potent anti-oxidant(water soluble) and also helps regenerating damaged livers (For all your drinkers reading our blog).
Chromium in a big enough dosage is highly effective as it has a unique ability to open the receptors of muscle cells allowing insulin to improve glycogen and amino acid uptake. My routine is as follows: early morning training (6am), drink 30g BCAA in small intervals until my 1pm meal as per LeanGains. Always know I can come here, look through the archives, and get great advice when I have a fitness question.
I think Frito Lay will soon realize the folly of their ways and realize that they’re eliminating a huge percentage of their potential market. You may opt for a walk while talking on the phone or a reunion on the move is a good idea instead of catching up with friends over food and drinks. If you find any particular type of fast food affecting your body adversely, try to give that up. This is not true, eating a healthy breakfast helps lose calories and is key to weight management. Use of this website and the information contained herein does not create a doctor-patient relationship.
Omelets: Eggs arena€™t bad, theya€™re nutrient-dense and loaded with belly-burning protein, vitamins B6, B12, A, D, E, and K, folate, choline, lutein, calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Beans: Black beans, navy beans, refried beans, and lima beans all have 6 or more grams of fiber per A? cup. Berries: Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are loaded with fiber, which slows sugar absorption, and theya€™re packed with vitamins that can fight cravings. Cinnamon: Researchers have found that cinnamon contains a type of antioxidant that increases insulin sensitivity and effectively helps to stabilize blood sugar. Chili Peppers: Studies have shown that the active ingredient in chili peppers and powder, something called capsaicin, increases calorie-burning, stabilizes blood sugar levels which decreases fat storage, and is a potent antioxidant. Wild Salmon: Hands-down one of the best belly-blasting foods because of its protein and high omega-3 fatty acid content.
The amount of glucose (blood sugar) that our adult body considers normal is about a teaspoon or, a few grams at most. This in turn allows more fat to freely exit your fat cells and makes it much more difficult to store calories as fat. When insulin is high, you will potentially store more body fat and less body fat will be burned as fuel. We will help you determine what your lean body mass is with our computerized body composition device and then will give you an amount of protein to shoot for. To provide some fat to the shake, you can add a raw egg or two (if you trust your eggs) or a tablespoon of coconut, olive, flax or MCT oil which stands for “medium chain triglycerides.” A company called NOW makes high quality MCT oil.
They are called, strongmen, powerlifters, weightlifters, scientists, coaches, etc, etc – they will advise you that for maximum strength you have to lift in the 90 to 100% 1RM range. There are many, many heavily muscled men and women who use moderate loads in their training and rarely if ever lift heavy. If I thought it were harmful, why would I be eating a half pound of butter each and every day? The more fat in the meal, the greater the blood-sugar rise, and so fat should be kept under 20% of calories if and when eating significant loads of carbs. My personal guru Dr Graham further notes that eliminating sugars simply replaces one problem (sugar absorption in the presence of fat, with resultant diabetes) with various fat related diseases (such as atherosclerosis).
Hypertrophy is also a goal in some sports as is the strengthening of various connective tissues. HIT claims to be superior due to the efficiency of it and in some cases, it is more effective at building MUSCLE because training to failure ensures the recruitment of the T2 fibers.
And is another reason why HIT is superior – anyone can use the principles to become more muscular and stronger.
The question is therefore why it is that people have diabetes and sugar problems when they are consuming less than 80% sugar.
The American diet is approximately 40% fat which blocks proper sugar absorption causing insulin spikes and wayward blood sugar.


If as you state that dietary fat *blocks* sugar absorption, than it could not cause a spike in blood sugar. I’m suggesting that high levels of blood glucose caused by excessive carbohydrate intake leads to chronically high levels of insulin secretion which results, in SOME people, in IR, excess adiposity and T2D. Since this is the 4th time I have asked you and the 4th time you have not answered, I’ll assume you think that he is stronger than you are.
He weighs 140 lbs and only has videos of him doing pull-ups and few presses, curls and bodyweight stuff.
If I answer this question you will ask it again in a few days and then I have to go searching through hundreds of comments to see what I said previously… only for you to ask the same question again. I used to assume you did this because you were trying to divert the question from your own appalling lack of strength but I am beginning to believe you have some sort of dementia.
This is true for almost any body weight exercise, so comparing the abilities of one person to another is silly unless you adjust for the difference in the length of the bones involved.
Insulin is directly responsible for the usage and storage of glucose from carbohydrates in the diet.
Glucose Disposal Agents optimize the power of insulin by improving the bodies physical response to exercise- creating a leaner, more toned, and healthier physique. I have been applying the knowledge in your podcast with Mike about carb cycling and I eat next to no carbs on non-training days (just salad) and small amounts of the clean carbs such as yams and brown rice on training days. As I consumed the first bag, I thought that it was a very placid, and common taste, which I had tasted before.
As I read this, I had tears in my eyes, but I don’t know if it was from the laughter or the Doritos Flamas that I was eating. Ok I have to admit theyre pretty hot but I ate a whole bag and drank a glass of milk…Done! Always consult with your own doctor in connection with any questions or issues you may have regarding your own health or the health of others.
Turns out certain vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, kale, and cabbage contain special phytonutrients, such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which help to fight against environmental estrogens that can add belly fat. Dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants with nearly eight times the number found in strawberries and it contains stimulants that can have a positive effect on fat burning, including theobromine and caffeine.
Just be sure to avoid the processed, high-sugar junk out there and stick to slow-cook oats. Fiber can clean your system of pounds of a€?toxic wastea€? and reduce your belly bulge in a big way. Regardless, I hope the info may help you or a loved one understand how the basic processes to lose fat successfully without losing lean mass at the same time. Though many people use these approaches with some degree of success, these approaches always fail in the long run.
So again, the main idea of this plan is to reset your metabolism so that your body uses stored fat as its primary source of fuel by keeping blood sugar normal.
To put this in perspective, your morning multi- grain muffin can have as much as 10 times this amount.
All human beings require adequate amounts of amino acids derived from fatty protein sources to build cells of all kinds including muscle and bone cells.
My clients include kids, seniors (and everyone in between), top CEOs, celebrities, bestselling authors, journalists and TV personalities.
Insulin resistance is used to describe a chronic condition, not a temporary response to a given meal.
As far as strength is concerned, HIT uses the time tested progressive resistance model which you do to.
Various positions in American Football, Sumo, Shotputters, etc, not only require greater strength but greater mass. Apparently all of the fruit you eat and the fat you avoid has gobbled up your neurons and turned the ones you have left into a form of syrup disallowing clear thinking. Obviously if I weighed 140 lbs like the fellow in the video I would be able to do one arm chin-ups. Glucose is stored as glycogen in muscle or liver tissue, but it CAN ALSO BE STORED AS BODY FAT.
As the chip touched my innocent tongue I felt a sharp pain come from every fucking taste bud that existed in my mouth. Do you think Frito Lay would make a product that is only consumed by one out of 100 people?
However, Greek yogurts like Stoneyfield Farms Oikos Greek Yogurt -plain- are loaded with probiotics that fight belly bulge. They also cause micronutrient (vitamins and mineral) deficiencies and result in lean tissue (muscle, bone, organs) loss.
Add this to the sugar in your coffee, your glass of juice, your banana and perhaps that “healthy” bowl of cereal in the morning and you have shoveled more sugar into your blood in the morning than you should eat in a week. These reports showed that heavy RT restored muscular strength and power in war veterans with physical disabilities.
I suppose for the old and decrepit that slow HIT style training would be about the only option, though I suspect that the H in HIT would not really need much emphasis. Explain that to the native Inuit or the Masai or the French who eats only their traditional fare. This would be like blaming a full tank of gasoline for you vehicular troubles when you have filled up your oil ’til it comes out of the oil cap. My own videos show a much greater variety of stuff and like the fellow in the video I also am much stronger than you, I also don’t do HIT. I wouldn’t say that they are as hot as 1st or 2nd degree burn, but they are way hotter than Spicy Nacho and they have an awesome hint of lime in them, too. This includes wild salmon, free-range chicken, whey protein powders, and most especially grass-fed beef because it contains natural CLAa€”a fat that studies have actually shown to burn fat. All of the sports you mention require that greater muscle and in the case of sumo wrestling fat mass, but none of the sports you mention have a goal of muscular hypertrophy. In proper strength training terms my efforts are hardly worth mentioning, yet to the HITer I am some sort of genetic superior on drugs because I can squat more than 300 lbs. Then the figure that I mentioned seeing earlier jumped out from behind the corner and stole all my damn doritos!
The interesting thing about protein is your body will burn off as much as 30% of its calories after you eat it. I believe you are trying to make the case that it’s harmful in some way but where is the evidence for this? Soon after I went to the hospital to rest up and prepare for my 2nd round with the 3 degrees of hatred.
