Ask a registered dietitian nutritionist anything related to nutrition and the interaction between nutrition and health & wellness.
I'm not a permanent tripfag. Just doing it for the thread.
I'm ottermode by /fit/ standards. I was bulkier in college when I played rugby but I've since slimmed down when I started participating in 10k and 20k runs on a regular basis.
I usually just laugh them off, unless they're a patient, in which case I seriously try my best to educate them and make them realize that being fat isn't healthy.
Do sugar alcohols metabolize in a manner similar to carbohydrates or to alcohols?
If alcohols, should I then count them as 8kcal/gram as I do other alcohols?

Looking for help on calculating my tdee.
Height: 6' 3"
I lift three times a week doing SL 5x5
I run three times a week with a scaling distance; 10 miles on mon, 5-7 of wed, and 3-5 on fri.
I also swim for funsies once a week.
Using that as a baseline, regardless of work and hiking, how much should I be eating?
tl;dr: recommend to me a good calorie calculator and then ways to measure its accuracy.
Thanks a ton for any help.
There isn't enough research to credit the benefits of taking a dietary supplement over obtaining proper nutrition from food. There is no substitute for a healthy diet. Most people often indulge in fruit more than they should, however, so I usually get a question along the lines of the opposite of that.
>"I eat all kinds of fruit every day! Why am I still fat?!"
The biggest thing is to stay hydrated. The second biggest thing is to deal with the stressors occurring in your everyday life.
It also doesn't hurt to engage in cardio at some point in the day. This will make you physically tired and you'll fall asleep easier at night.
Compared to regular blood glucose, sugar alcohol won't raise your glucose levels the same way carbohydrates will. This is because it doesn't completely absorb into your system like normal alcohol will, resulting in it taking more of a toll on your gastrointestinal system, and can lead to things like diarrhea. The calorie range can be anywhere from zero to three or four calories per gram, depending on what form you're ingesting. Xylitol is usually what most manufacturers go for, and you can look up the nutritional facts of it online.
It's great, especially if you're working out. It's a great way to consume larger amounts of protein in your diet for the purpose of building muscle.The problem is, most people waste it since it is water-soluble, you quite literally piss away everything your body doesn't use. The average rate at which you absorb the protein directly is about 8-10 grams per hour. That means your body only uses around 12-15 grams of each shake, even if you're using far more per scoop.
You need to do stretching and try not to over-exert yourself when lifting. Look up some strength-training yoga. See a physical therapist or clinical exercise physiologist if you don't see any results.
Sorry for the long wait, a friend showed up at my place.
>Are GMOs bad?
For your health no, for long term environmental effects and cross pollination with other species we aren't exactly sure.
>Is Gluten bad?
If you have a gluten intolerance like <1% of the population.
Cholesterol imbalance is an extremely common problem these days.Regularly doing cardiovascular exercise can help lower your LDL and raise your HDL. If you maintain good cardiovascular health and a healthy body fat percentage, you'll also be maintaining a healthy blood pressure and lower your risk of sudden plaque ruptures, clots, cardiovascular disease, and even stroke.
"Cleanses" and "detoxes" are complete nonsense. Your body is perfectly capable of "cleansing" itself of toxins. You just have to have a healthy, balanced diet. You'll start to notice changes within the first few days.
Look for 40% carbohydrates, 30% fats, and 30% proteins. Do you want specific recipes?
Your BMR is around the 1900 kCal range and your TDEE is around 2700.
You have to slowly work yourself into eating more. It's like training.
Cardio, lots of green leafy vegetables, lower saturated fat intake.
4 years to get a bachelor's degree, then 1 year of an internship.
Annual salary is $52k a year. Not much, but it's enough to live comfortably.
Nope, turns out it's the other way around, although considering OP identified himself as a dietitian nutritionist it's a moot point
>all dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians
Your body can absorb much more protein than that in that period of time. Outdated info.
Still no strong link between cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
Saturated fat is overhyped as the 'bad fat' , bbut, just like cholesterol, the evidence is weak
>Your body can absorb much more protein than that in that period of time. Outdated info.
it's surprising that OP is apparently taught this. it also shows that having a degree does not mean you're immune to old broscience. or he could be lying about his degree, of course.
What's the final word on egg yolks?
Are they actually bad or is it a myth?
Please explain to me why I should NOT be worried about cholesterol in eggs (in case you say they are fine)

>In September 2001, Dr. Ranjit Chandra, a prominent nutrition researcher, published a study about the effects of vitamin supplementation on the cognitive functions of the elderly. Roberts and Saul Sternberg, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, discovered inconsistencies in the data presented, specifically in the data distribution and standard deviation. Roberts is quoted as stating "the results were not just implausible, they were impossible."  The story received recognition in both the British Medical Journal and the New York Times. The CBC ran a three-part documentary about the controversy called The Secret Life of Dr. Chandra. In 2005, Nutrition issued a retraction of Chandra's original paper.
why are there almost no vitamins in my frozen veggies
I've read peer-reviewed articles saying that flash frozen veggies retain their nutrients more than fresh ones but there are no vitamins to begin with
I'm currently 8.5% BF at 5' 10" but only BMI of 22 (skinnier). I'm eating TDEE+400 in the hope of gaining ~10 lb of muscle. Is there merit to this slight overnutrient approach? How should I tailor it?
How do I eat for legit health. Not bulkan
How would those two diets differ?
>>Are GMOs bad?
>For your health no
I'm 20, female, and have an average bmi, all be it at the top end of the scale. I weigh 67kg and I'm about 5'5". I eat probably just under the amount of calories required for someone of my size. What I don't get is that I have this stomach chub that just won't budge. Seriously if I've eaten a big meal and I let it all hang out I can look 4 or 5 months pregnant. I also have a sister who's 5 years younger than me and eats almost double what I eat daily, yet has barely any gut at all. I don't get it. I ate pretty much the same as her at her age, was just as active but always had a gut on me. Why do I not look like her? I rarely ever eat fast food, rarely ever drink soda, eat fairly balanced meals. What gives?
The GMO isn't directly the problem here. It's the Roundup. The GMO allows more Roundup to be on the plant because the GMO makes it invulnerable to Roundup. In fact, it allows all of it as opposed to none.
That study shows male rats with 4x more estrogen than the control group, among other things that should probably bother someone more.
Is insulin levels to blame for making arteries brittle and crack, then causing cholesterol to clog the cracks? Therefore, making cholesterol and saturated fat healthy and making sugar, simple carbs unhealthy.
I'm taking rainbow light men's daily vitamin but a few hours after when I go to urinate, my urine is a bright yellow with a green hue. Their forum page said it's green because of excess vitamin B is being excreted. Does urine really turn green because of excess vitamin B or am I just pissing away the majority of the vitamin and minerals even though I take the single daily in two separate eating sessions by splitting it in two to allow my body to absorb more. Is this an effective method for more absorption?
I could be anyone in the world. I could be a Haitian with their "new" 2001 Lenovo they got by saving from picking corn for 3 years.
But really I'm just text in a box.
There is no guarantee of much of anything of this text in a box.
When something boils down to having that little substance, one could argue such an item would be for use of entertainment purposes and practically not much else.
Maybe a precursor to do your own research. But really only if something pops up that you've never heard of before that you can investigate on your own.
Are you entertained? You must be. What else are you possibly getting from reading these texts in these boxes?
What is your opinion on powdered "greens" vegetable supplements like the one in my pic?
How do they compare to eating actual vegetables?
Does not compute. Flash freezing veggies retains the vitamins, yes.
You mean bulking? 10 lbs of muscle is dependent on your training schedule, where you are in your training career, etc.
Not mutually exclusive
Strong confirmation bias.
How many calories are you eating daily? I'd suggest less fruit, more veggies.
No. Look at your hip to waist ratio if you want an accurate representation of your risk for cardiovascular disease. HDL/total cholesterol is important, but dietary cholesterol is not. They inhibited the enzyme that cycles HDL to LDL and found a higher mortality rate. Vitamin K2, found in milks and cheeses, can prevent calcification of the tunica media of the blood vessel as well as the plaque on the inside
Yellow, yes, green, no
I very much doubt it. I have hypersomnia which means I sleep around 13 hours a night and usually miss breakfast and lunch time, have a banana/bowl of oats, snack on a piece or two of salami maybe, then eat dinner; I only really have one meal a day. I don't know if the sleep might have something to do with it?
Hello, I'm overweight and about 4 months ago I got my cholesterol checked, the doctor told me my LDL was high, I was also Vitamin D deficient. Sometimes I fear I will have a heartattack, but then I look at other people who are wll into the 300s and they somehow are still alive.
What are the chances of me getting a heart attack at my age? I'm 22 and 260 pounds. I am working to walk the weight off and eat better food, with low sodium. I do admit I ate many foods with alot of salt, and I'm lowering it down.
Also, what could I do to lower LDL?
get a scale, my fitness pal, and weigh out all of your food. This will give you an accurate representation of how many calories you're eating.
You could try omega 3 supplements, working out, losing weight, etc. Low chances at 22 but if you continue your heart will look like it's 50 when you're 30
I don't eat vegetables.
I do eat about half a pound of fruit a day on average.
I also regularly eat beans.
Rest of my diet consists of dairy, meat, canned fish and nuts.
What do I miss out on?
I'd suggest looking for psychological factors holding them back more than anything. People are comfortable at certain weights due to set points and have a hard time budging. Underweight individuals have to find caloric dense foods whilst fat people have to find food that is not so dense. People who are older have an array of different needs than that of a typical young peraon
I understand that aspect and an intermediate understanding of dietary principals, I'm simply looking for a resource to further improve my knowledge (intermediate-->advanced, or basic-->intermediate depending on your perspective). Specfically about the physiological nature of diet, as opposed to the psychological dillemas.
If you wanted to go as far as a dietician then I would suggest looking at RDA values for all vitamins, minerals, carb, fat, pro, which can play a role in how they feel. use those values and plan out a well rounded diet. If that doesn't help, ask a more specific question in regards to the physiology
>omega-3 fatty acids
I take those as supplement and I also eat mackarel often.
My diet consists of a lot of dairy. I go through a lot of milk, yoghurt and quark.
Don't think calcium is gonna be an issue.
For the others, I don't knwo much about those. From what foods do you typically get those vitamins and minerals?
Meat has plenty of b vitamins, those are not what I'd be concerned about, mostly just a lack of minerals imo. You can eat broccoli and spinach which both contain those in large amounts
>Still no strong link between cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
>Saturated fat is overhyped as the 'bad fat' , bbut, just like cholesterol, the evidence is weak
You're what's technically known as a science denier, or "denialist"
He was pretty thin. The new "saturated fat is healthy" fad is dangerous.
Ofcourse there is, that's the definition of the phrase 'too much'.
Even too much water can kill you.
I'm not >>32147541 but I agree with him.
You're just posting a shitty ad-hominem, disguised as an argument.
Provide a real source instead of this dumb wiki link.
>The new "saturated fat is healthy" fad is dangerous.
It's not a fad if it's how humans have been eating for thousands of years.
Basic foods like meat, eggs and nuts contain saturated fat. Nothing wrong with that.
Ofcourse nobody should go around eating kg's of red meat, or 30 eggs a day, but in moderation it's most likely fine.
Dietary cholesterol is not linked to blood cholesterol levels.
Saturated fat in moderation has not been proven be bad for you. In fact, it's the opposite as there have been studies that have linked saturated fat consumption with testosterone levels. If you are interested in muscle mass, it's vital you get sat. fat in your diet. That's also ignoring sat. fat's role in mental health and overall feelings of well being.
>I'm not >>32147541 but I agree with him.
>Provide a real source
Should I just start listing the diet advice of every health organization in the world to show you how much of a consensus view it is that elevated cholesterol leads to heart disease, and that saturated fat, which raises cholesterol, should be low in your diet?
>It's not a fad if it's how humans have been eating for thousands of years.
That would be an appeal to nature fallacy but it isn't even true to begin with
>Dietary cholesterol is not linked to blood cholesterol levels.
It most definitely is
>Saturated fat in moderation has not been proven be bad for you
Moderation defined by who? You? Proven by who, how?
>it's the opposite as there have been studies that have linked saturated fat consumption with testosterone levels. If you are interested in muscle mass, it's vital you get sat. fat in your diet
Which is also bullshit, but it wouldn't make saturated fat "healthy" even if it were true. At best you would be shortening your life for a mild testosterone boost
>coming from a society that is going "gluten free"
Just because it's popular doesn't make it right. Most of today's nutritional advice stems from research in the 70s that have since been debunked and that's a fact.
Basically every study is based on fatties eating hamburgers and then concluding "OMG SATURATED FAT IS GIVING PEOPLE HEART ATTACKS".
Show me a study utilizing fit adults who do cardio and maybe I'll change my mind.
Any study that just lumps all saturated fats into a single group is unscientific and seriously lacking in any kind of validity as to what conclusions can be drawn from dietary issues
What do you base any of that on? It's a worldwide accepted medical fact that saturated fats increase your risk of heart disease, regardless of if you're obese or sedentary or physically active or lean. You might as well be arguing that smoking doesn't increase your risk of lung cancer if you do cardio and aren't sedentary. It sounds nice in your head, but it's not based on anything
>diet advice of every health organization in the world
Mostly outdated info on these topics.
Not too long ago goverments were pushing the "less fat in food is better", which resulted in less fat and more carbs (specifically sugar). You know what the impact of that was.
Before the negative effects of trans fat were known, trans fats were said to be actually healtier fats. They were put in a lot of stuff as they were cheap.
Health organizations screw up.
>That would be an appeal to nature fallacy but it isn't even true to begin with
It's not a fallacy if it's true. The reason a lot of people get problems due to their diets is processed shit, added sugar, transfat, high carb, low fat/protein food. Just look at your average grocery store. Like 80% is mostly carbs with a lot of sugar.
Do you really think basic foods are unhealthy?
what can i eat besides spinach,fish,broccoli to help collagen production for my loose skin (i already eat the shit listed, just I want supplements or other food i can devour to help w/ my loose skin)
Source includes links to all applicable studies.
1. Dietary cholesterol has small effect on serum cholesterol compared to saturated fat
2. Feeding studies provide mixed evidence, however meta-analyses point to a lack of major effect
3. Those with very low baseline dietary cholesterol respond more than those with modest baseline cholesterol intake
4. Adding 300-400 mg cholesterol to a cholesterol free diet results in an increase in serum cholesterol, but subsequent addition of more cholesterol has little, if any, effects
I'll modify: dietary cholesterol is not linked to large changes in blood cholesterol
A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD.
Despite a distinct increase in saturated fat intake from baseline to the low-carbohydrate diet (46 to 84 g/day), and then a gradual decrease in saturated fat to 32 g/day at the highest carbohydrate phase, there were no significant changes in the proportion of total SFA in any plasma lipid fractions.
>all the world's experts are just behind the times
>I'm ahead of the curve and I'm totally educated and way smarter than everybody
>Not too long ago goverments were pushing the "less fat in food is better", which resulted in less fat and more carbs (specifically sugar). You know what the impact of that was.
That actually never happened. People were told to eat less fat AND less sugar, and people ate more fat and more sugar. We eat more fat now than we ever have. Now you'll need a new excuse to say all the experts are wrong. As for trans fats, we didn't know the health effects of trans fats immediately. It's not in any way comparible to saturated fat, which has been studied extensively for more than half a century. Nobody has any doubt about it at this point except for people who desperately want to believe their favorite fatty foods are good for them.
>The reason a lot of people get problems due to their diets is processed shit, added sugar, transfat, high carb, low fat/protein food.
While I know you're not actually basing this on any data, you're also implying for whatever reason that if other harmful things exist then saturated fat must not be harmful. That's just looking for other things to blame
I'll agree that it doesn't cause as much of an increase as saturated fat, but the increase is there, and dietary cholesterol also increases the effect saturated fats have on your blood cholesterol.
>A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed
I'm very familiar with this one because everybody who's trying to find good things to say about saturated fat passes around this study without reading it or understanding it. It's funded by the National Dairy Council and co-athored by a guy who also takes money from the Cattlemans Beef Association and the Atkins Foundation. If you want to see why this meta-analysis is void, here's a video that breaks down the studies used to state that saturated fat isn't harmful
I'm also familiar with the second study, funded by the Egg Nutrition Center, the Atkins Foundation, the Cattleman's Beef Association, The Beef Checkoff, and the Dairy Research Institute. The study authors, some of whom sit on the Science Advisory Board of the Atkins Foundation, experimented by feeding overweight diabetics (people with a broken glucose metabolism) varying degrees of saturated fat or questionable-quality carbohydrate. As the authors point out,
>isocaloric high-carbohydrate diets  and high-carbohydrate meals ,  also promote DNL and hypertriglyceridemia in individuals with insulin resistance. The major product of DNL is palmitate (16:0), a saturated fatty acid (SFA)
In other words, not much difference was observed because the diabetics they performed the study on synthesize saturated fats when fed with sugar. Wherever you find these studies, stop taking information from them.
>all the world's experts are just behind the times
For very specific issues like this, they very well could be. They're not infallible.
>I'm ahead of the curve and I'm totally educated and way smarter than everybody
I never claimed this. This is a blatant ad-hominem.
>That actually never happened.
How retarded are you?
Ever looked on the nutrition labels of "light/diet" products? Take for example peanut butter. They remove a part of the fat and replace it with sugar.
>We eat more fat now than we ever have.
Yes, because we eat more in general. More calories = more fat.
>Nobody has any doubt about it at this point
That's just wrong. There are recent studies that show their doubts.
I'm just gonna leave this here and stop this fruitless discussion (>you: "gobment says it's bad, so it's bad. >I: "In moderation it might not be bad.")
Keto is perfectly fine. It's been used for decades to treat epileptics and there has been no adverse side effects. Keto has not been shown to have any major problems despite numerous studies being funded to prove otherwise.
You are welcome to research more into this issue. Anyone who says otherwise about Keto are pulling shit out of their asses.
>Long-term effects of a ketogenic diet in obese patients
>The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet. It significantly reduced the body weight and body mass index of the patients. Furthermore, it decreased the level of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose, and increased the level of HDL cholesterol. Administering a ketogenic diet for a relatively longer period of time did not produce any significant side effects in the patients. Therefore, the present study confirms that it is safe to use a ketogenic diet for a longer period of time than previously demonstrated.
>For very specific issues like this, they very well could be. They're not infallible.
Not infallible, but weigh their expertise versus yours or anyone else who disagrees with them. It's all of the world's most experienced, educated scientists, studying a major contributing factor to what is the most major cause of death in the western world. Humble yourself a bit and admit you don't even deserve to have a real opinion on the matter, you're uneducated and have no clue about the topic. It's one thing to be skeptical and to accept it while asking questions, it's another to say everybody who's qualified to talk about it is completely wrong, especially when you're not at all familiar with the science
>How retarded are you?
I'll save you the trouble of having to actually research this yourself and just point you to the macronutrient breakdowns of the American diet from 1909 to 2010
Whatever you want to assume the American diet is, fuck off with that and look at actual data. It's very high in fat, very high in refined carbs.
>Yes, because we eat more in general. More calories = more fat.
Didn't you say people eat less fat now? Apparently people aren't living off steamed rice and broccoli, they're eating lots of fat.
>That's just wrong. There are recent studies that show their doubts.
Same sentiments as above, the data required to convince you isn't the data required to convince people who actually know how to interpret studies, because you're not a scientist.
ketogenic diets are fucking stupid as hell. your body needs carbohydrates to function properly.
if youre morbidly obese and already dont give a shit about your health, and want to lose massive amounts of weight in an unhealthy way, then I guess that's the only time I'd recommend a ketogenic diet.
otherwise just restrict your carbs and go over some macronutrition articles and learn to eat properly for your fitness goals
I didn't just say "funded by industry, it's bad" I pointed out why they're badly designed. The fact that the studies are bought by people who would profit from the conclusions just means you need to look at them more closely, because it's very unlikely that they'd publish a study that doesn't make their product look good. I can find you studies funded by the National Confectioner's Association that claim candy isn't harmful
No problem, and sorry if I come off as a bit abrasive, I just get annoyed seeing people fall for the same things from the same websites that try to muddy the waters about this topic. People are too eager to believe what they want about diet and end up hearing all this propaganda without understanding the mainstream side of the argument. People need to be skeptical of good news when it comes to nutrition. If you want to believe it, chances are it's not true
Haven't found much to disagree with from OP, other than the notion that consuming more than 15 grams of protein at a time is a waste - implies digestion occurs instantly - and the use of ratios to calculate macronutrients instead of gram totals.
Is it necessary for all the vitamins to be listed under the nutritional label? Sometimes I see that I read that a specific food is supposed to be rich in a certain nutrient but it doesn't match up on the label. I bought fresh broccoli the other day, which is apparently supposed to be rich in Vitamin K but it wasn't listed on the label.
man I don't give a fuck about the fundamentals, and even though that's an ignorant statement anyone who thinks eating pounds of bacon a day is healthy is a complete idiot.
during the rise and height of the popularity of keto diets on forums full of autistic fucks such as SA, I saw countless unhealthy people switch to this diet due to the fact that they could eat ground beef 24/7.
not once did I see anyone get actual positive fitness results, the fatties dripped off pounds and were left feeling like utter shit, then rebounded in weight when switching off the diet because theyre addicted to cookies. fit people trying the diet, getting through the lack of energy phase, etc. acclimatizing themselves to it, had shit skin and looked like death even when doing ok.
some idiot even killed his dog feeding it a ketogenic diet, further reinforcing it as a meme diet for complete idiots. please prove me wrong with some bodybuilders or fitness experts that dont look like shit on the diet, I havent researched it greatly and ive only been exposed to this shit on forums and imageboards due to in being fundamentally retarded.
>some idiot even killed his dog feeding it a ketogenic diet
Isn't that what dogs normally eat?
>ignoring actual scientific studies showing keto is absolutely fine
>uses misapplication as an excuse to slander
Why aren't you arguing the futility of bodybuilding? How some people fail their routines and thus bodybuilding must be a farce?
Why aren't you discussing how caloric deficits are bad because some people are anorexics?
Use an actual scientific study to prove me wrong and use less "feelings" and "anecdotal evidence"
im arguing the futility of switching to a diet that requires a massive and structured lifestyle change for people that consider an entire box of oreos a snack. keto works in weight loss, eating pure meat as 90% of your diet is disgusting.
idk what youre talking about re bodybuilding and anorexia, those things both exist.
The point is you're building up a strawman argument against a legitimate diet. Keto has worked for many people and despite the lifestyle change can be well worth it.
There is inherently nothing "unhealthy" about keto.
I agree that the lifestyle change is drastic and--as with any diet--many dieters relapse once they stop.
You must be a moron if you don't understand the correlation of saying keto is bad because people misapply it and saying caloric deficits are bad because some people misapply it (anorexia).
>high levels of ketosis in the short term can be serious and the long term effects of regular moderate ketosis are only partially known at the moment.

>High or very high ketone levels may be indicated by vomiting or the presence of ketones on the breath, which may smell ‘fruity’ or reminiscent of nail polish remover.
>there is no particular ketone level that has been regarded as safe over the long term.
It is known that keto is not meant for diabetics.
>That actually never happened. People were told to eat less fat AND less sugar, and people ate more fat and more sugar. We eat more fat now than we ever have.
just about anything in this sentence is wrong.
the pyramid tells to get rid of the calories from fat and use mostly carbs
fat consumption has been declining, obesity is rising
>mfw doing keto and feeling fantastic
>>some idiot even killed his dog feeding it a ketogenic diet
>Isn't that what dogs normally eat?
no, you need to feed him carbs, we all just need more carbs. forget about evolution.
i don´t think a no carb diet is necessarily good. i am just doing well with a diet that takes 60% calories from fat and then goes mostly with vegetables, nuts, etc... not carb free and super high on vitamins
Sorry about that, everyone. There was a storm that knocked my power out last night.
It is the other way around. In the USA at least, anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. Dietitians have to pass board exams, have a degree, and a clinical internship.
>Your body can absorb much more protein than that in that period of time. Outdated info.
It depends on your size, muscle mass, activity levels, water consumption, and many other factors. We use 12 to 15 as a control considering most, if not all, of my patients aren't muscular people.
However, if you take a look at this study researchers found that on average, their subjects who had 90 grams of protein in their meal got exactly the same level of benefit as their subjects who ate 20-30 grams of protein.
>Still no strong link between cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
The low-density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol) transfer lipids (fats) through your blood stream into the cells of your body. Due to the fact that the proteoglycans in your endothelial cells easily retain oxidized forms, if you have more than 200 mg/dL of low-density lipoproteins in your blood, it can cause the endothelium to oxidize. More importantly, because they transfer lipids throughout the body, they can end up in arterial walls and cause blockage.
>Saturated fat is overhyped as the 'bad fat'
It's only considered "bad" because the negative effects it can have on your cardiovascular health. You have to maintain a "bad cholesterol" level of at least 80 mg/dL, otherwise you're at risk of shutting down your nervous system.
Also, dietary cholesterol isn't the same as trans/saturated fats.
>no empirical data
>doesn´t know what the difference between a correlation and a causality is
>can´t into artefact
dude stop pretending you can into science
If you can post proof saying otherwise, I'm all ears. This is what is accepted in the medical community. A physician will tell you the exact same thing.
There is more evidence showing that LDL transfers lipids into arterial walls than what shows it doesn't.
Egg yolks are fine. Dietary cholesterol isn't the same as eating saturated and trans fats. It hardly contributes to the blood cholesterol level, if at all.
Be careful going into hyperalimentation, because in a lot of cases you just end up gaining excess body fat. If you appropriately balance your diet and physical activity, you can avoid that. I'd need more info before I can suggest a ratio.
Balance is key. Getting sufficient nutrition from various food sources throughout the day is the best way to eat healthy. Stick with vegetables of varying colors and things like lean meats. Avoid eating an excess in calories, unless you're bulking properly.
You can bulk and eat healthy at the same time, though. That's certainly what I'd recommend as far as maintaining overall dietary health, at least.
I'm a 26 year old guy.
Two scoops is approximately 60 grams, right? You're better off with just one. Unless you're seven feet tall+ and 360 lbs. at 8-10% bodyfat, you'll never absorb 60 grams of protein before your body digests it.
I work at a hospital. People with health problems related to diet are recommended to me from their physician, and based on their blood work, body fat content, activity level, and other factors like metabolic diseases, I make them a nutritional plan.
Most of my patients are type II diabetics, but I'll occasionally get people with epilepsy and things like that. Diet is the best way to prevent disease.
>I eat probably just under the amount of calories required for someone of my size.
>What I don't get is that I have this stomach chub that just won't budge
Lower your caloric intake and start counting your calories. You can't just guess if you're concerned about your weight. You can't compare your intake to your sister, either, since you likely have different basal metabolic rates.
Keep a log of everything you eat and add up the calories.
There was actually a link between insulin resistance and things like artherosclerosis and pulmonary embolism. The lack of appropriate insulin signaling, especially in peripheral tissues such as adipose cells, results in abnormal lipid metabolism that consistently produces a proatherogenic phenotype, causing FFA levels originating in lipid, endocytosis of lipoproteins rich in triglyceride, and de novo lipgenesis which makes it so the body can't suppress lipolysis.
The B vitamin itself will not turn your urine green, but some combinations of B vitamins found in various compounding formulas will. It is not something to be alarmed about. You'll be fine.
I've never had any experience with it, to tell you the truth. There is no substitute or shortcut to a healthy diet, though.
Stay hydrated and wash your face with a deep cleanser 2-3 times per day. That's really all I can help with skin health.
Over 80% of cases of acne vulgaris are due to genetics.
Go to the doctor, anon.
Keep it under 6% of your caloric intake. Anything more is detrimental to your health.
Your chances of having a heart attack at that age are low. I did have a 24 year old patient who had a heart attack and was only around 240 pounds, however, so diet and cardiovascular exercise should be your primary concerns right now. You can do it.
>half a pound of fruit
Way too much.
>I don't eat vegetables.
There really isn't enough hard evidence on the causes of gynecomastia to tell at this point. Around a quarter of the cases are unknown in origin, so it's a mystery for now. My guess is no, though.
I've only ever prescribed a patient a ketogenic diet once, and it was a guy with epilepsy to help control his seizures. Works pretty good for that. He hasn't seized in 9 months now.
Had this for lunch the day before yesterday...
How am i still alive? (930g Sausages, 200ml Ketchup)
>There's no such thing as "too much fruit"
If you're gorging on fruit, you might as well be downing a couple of cans of mountain dew a day. Boy that's a lot of sugar.
>Saturated fat in moderation has not been proven be bad for you
That is correct, but it does for a fact increase LDL levels, which in several studies has shown to be bad for your cardiovascular health.
Whey and casein have fundamentally different effects, but they complement one another quite well. Some lifters and athletes will actually use both differently throughout the day.
It's good, especially if you're just getting started in the weight room and don't want to get tired as quickly. I approve. 8/10. But only during the workout. Before or after won't be as effective.
Not sure how they do it in London, but here in the states dietetics programs are heavy in microbiology and organic chemistry. Those are usually the biggest bumps for students, so if you can conquer that, the nutritional courses will be easy. Good luck mate.
R.I.P. in Pieces, anon's gastrointestinal tract. We knew ye well.
In regards to protein synthesis vs intake... I'm cutting right now, doing IF and ingesting 50% of my daily protein (typically 230-250 grams) in two meals within an 8-hour window. To minimise muscle loss during this cut, would I be better off eating my protein in several smaller doses?
I'm 6'', 95kg if that helps in some way.
Also, what's your view on this article on the topic?
I think several smaller doses would be okay.
>Also, what's your view on this article on the topic?
Interesting read, but no scientific merit.
They can be good, but if you're just taking it to protect your heart, it may not be so good. There's a study showing that omega-3 fatty acid supplements did nothing to reduce heart attacks, strokes, or deaths from heart disease in people with risk factors for heart disease.
>They can be good, but if you're just taking it to protect your heart, it may not be so good
So what are they good for? I started taking it just a few days ago because I couldn't find any sources NOT recommending them, I don't have any specific health worries.
It's fine m8.
There have been some trials with it for treating/preventing breast cancer in women, but outside of that it isn't good for much. There isn't any conclusive evidence that omega-3 fatty acids are associated with a lower risk of morality.
Under which conditions does adipose tissue store large amounts of glycogen, and what are the implications.
I recently read several studies that showed that adipose tissue has a huge variance in density and amount of fat stored, generally ranging from 50-90% of their weight, and well as other studies suggesting that a part of the obese population appear to be 'metabolically healthy' (other implications of obesity aside), while others, as well as many not obese people are at high risk. I feel like this might be related.
IF and CR can be successful if done properly, and even beneficial to health in some cases.
There aren't a lot of studies on it, so I don't prescribe it to patients, but there is more info on it being productive rather than detrimental, so I support it.
Reintroducing nourishment after a prolonged fast produces a marked transient spike in adipose glycogen, which dissipates when the lipids resynthesize.
There is no shortcut. It can have detrimental effects on your cardiovascular health and you can get reduced bloodflow to your arms and legs, on top of tachycardia. I would absolutely not recommend taking this anymore.
I'm a 25 yo male, 175 lbs 6 feet. I've been lifting for about a year now, but never really paid attention to my diet. Being about time for a change, I started to eat as much protein and as little as carbs/sugars as possible. I am not counting my calories, but I've been eating with moderation. I also recently started doing some major compound excercises (before I mainly did seperate muscles).
All good and fine, however Ive been struck by a lot of fatigue. Trembling and weak on my legs. I have slept and eaten more then enough, yet I feel like I havent eaten/slept in 24 hours. Is this because of the compound excercises? Because of the cold turkey on sugars? Is there anything I can change, or is it just something I'll have to go through with?
No OP but we need to know the cause of hepatic failure to figure this out, it may not be a nutrient problem. Is it primary or secondary? intracellular or extracellular? endocrine problems? Any concurrent disease?
because that guy probably has no idea what hes talking about and is mad because real science destroyed his bro science and the routine he has been following for liek 6 months has all gone to waste
I'm doing a cut right now. My friend has been trying to tell me that sugars are evil and I should eat high fat. I haven't seen any evidence suggesting that the ratio of fats to carbs really makes a difference though. If I'm eating adequate protein, does it really matter?
Dear tripfag. I have to shit 30 min to two hours after having caffeine, without fail and usually have to piss 15 minutes after. I almost never have caffeine. What is wrong with me? Do I have aids?
you are being delusional with your calorie intake.
please read this.
Careful with this advice.
Had knee pains, kept squatiing, even recorded my form and sent to a competitive powerlifter who said my form was decent. Went to a orthopedic surgeon, said my knee was fucked and I have a meniscus tear.
Surgery 2 weeks later and recovery took a month. I now also have arthritis in my knee for life because I've been walking around with a meniscus tear for years.
>>half a pound of fruit
>Way too much.
Half a pound of fruit is way too much? Cmon now, even 250g grapes contains only about 40g of sugar (same amount as in one can of coke).
>>I don't eat vegetables.
I asked what I am missing out on. If I can get the needed minerals/vitemins/whatever from other sources besides vegetables, I really wanna know which sources are available.
To be honest, I don't think not eating vegetables matters much, considering the rest of my diet. But I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
Have there been any studies done on the subject of weight regain/body composition during the maintenance weeks following a cut?
I see a lot of people say eat high prot high carb low fat, but I fail to see the reason.
Of course I always assume maintenance calories here. Is there any benefit or disadvantage of doing either:
High prot, low carb, high fat (25/20/50)
High prot, high carb, low fat (30/50/20)
High prot, mod carb, mod fat (30/35/35)
>If you're gorging on fruit, you might as well be downing a couple of cans of mountain dew a day. Boy that's a lot of sugar.
How did you become a registered dietitian?
>The WHO guideline does not refer to the sugars in fresh fruits and vegetables, and sugars naturally present in milk, because there is no reported evidence of adverse effects of consuming these sugars.
Anything negative about refined sugar does not apply to fruit. Fruit offers only benefits.
On keto you still consume about 40 grams of carbs a day. When I did keto I stayed in ketosis even at about 60-80 net grams of carbs a day. A medium peach is net 12 grams. A banana is net 24 grams. 10 strawberries is net 8 grams. Avocado, the patron fruit of keto, is fatty and nutritious and has 2 net carbs.
As part of a balanced keto diet, the carbs you consume should be from fresh fruits and vegetables. It's not a diet devoid of carbs, its a diet devoid of relatively empty carbs like bread and pasta.
>fatty trying to justify downing his bodyweight in sugary snacks
protip: if you have a sweet tooth, thats a sign of high estrogen
only women like excessive sweet snacks
high test makes you crave savory stuff instead
Fuck you, big boy. Manly men eat fruit. Keeps you lean and full of testosterone. Fatty foods just make you fat and give you estrogen-filled bitch tits.
>Fatty foods make you fat
>fat is directly deposited in adipose tissue immediately after consumption
>scientists can tell what kind of fat is in your diet by studying your body fat
The sticky is a basic guideline written by an amateur. I'm laughing my testicles in half imagining you going into the University of California to speak to their nutrition professor and say "e-excuse me, b-but the.. the s-sticky on /fit/ s- *clears throat* s-said ummmm...."
Nutrition science beyond identifying deficiencies is a load of fucking shit. You want to know how to be healthy? Eat lots of whole foods, exercise, lift heavy things, and don't be fat. Bam, I just did your whole job.
