Re: Paleo and grains

Bob, here's an article that picks some holes in the theory of Gluten causing gut permiability: http://blog.cholesterol-and-health.com/2011/04/is-gluten-making-my-gut-leaky-shorter.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Note that this doesn't say there is no connection, just that the st...

Re: Paleo and grains

essentially, it's the gluten that makes the big difference. Grains have it in spades and it's really bad news. nightshades contain alkaloids, and although alkaloids have been associated with inflammation, it's never been definitively proven and generally speaking you'll be alright unless you have a...

Re: Paleo and grains

sorry, I should've been more specific. It's the chronic inflammation of the gut caused by grain consumption I was referring to. acute inflammation = good chronic inflammation = very bad indeed How is the inflammation from grain significantly more dangerous than the inflammation from other foods? Ri...

Re: Caloric Intake/Cutting

Remember Ironman's example of 3000 (or whatever) calories from doughnuts vs. 3000 calories from steak and broccoli. If "a calorie is a calorie" then both should have the same effect. I doubt it. part of the reason I rarely read this site is the polarized views on it. So you don't read the forum jus...

Re: Paleo and grains

Please explain the difference to me. I'm genuinely curious. http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/index.php/inflammation-both-friend-and-foe/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; That was kind of the point I was making - you're assuming that inflammation is SUPA DUPA bad, but it all depends...

If you're low-carbin' it, LISS is a better bet for maintaining muscle than HIIT.

Re: Paleo and grains

grains contain gluten. gluten causes inflammation. inflammation can kill you in about ten zillion ways. That's all I need to know to limit grains. I'm not worried about what they'll do to my body composition, it's the inflammation I worry about. Lifting weights causes inflammation. Should probably ...

Re: Caloric Intake/Cutting

your first post in the thread came across as being very polarised. Calories in vs calories out is indeed a scientific fact, but insulin spikes blunting fat loss is also a scientific fact. The easiest way to avoid that is to avoid having a high carb intake all day. Insulin spikes blunt fat loss temp...

Re: Caloric Intake/Cutting

Carbs offer quick energy in what sense? Fat can be broke down and used for energy as quickly, it just can't be used in an anaerobic environment because it needs oxygen to be 'oxidized'. Carbs offer quick energy. High GI carbs are absorbed and ready to use in blood, muscles and liver way faster than...

Re: Caloric Intake/Cutting

Yeah, there are many polarized views about the issue. Have you ever wondered why? I'm not to bash you or anything, but to throw in my opinion about the issue. Ironman is a wise fellow, said alot of things I would have said and agreed to, but let me give my 2 cents. A calorie isn't a calorie. That's...

Re: Caloric Intake/Cutting

While saying it is polarized here could be a fair criticism, portraying an equally polarized view as not being so really takes away from any impact of said criticism. Plus there are some of us with a little more nuanced view on this; a view that may change just a little here and there based on new ...

Re: Caloric Intake/Cutting

Calories do matter - part of the reason I rarely read this site is the polarized views on it. Low carb, as much fat as you want? Yeah right. I could throw down 5000 calories worth of protein and fat every day and I guarantee I'd put on pounds upon pounds of fat. Carbs are not bad, fat beyond 90-100...

Re: Paleo and grains

People will constantly claim they've got 'gluten intolerance' etc. When in all reality, about 1% of the human population has Celiac Disease (gluten tears up their intestines) and only about 5-7% are actually gluten intolerant. That's the problem with people these days, they hear some people can't di...
