It's like pudding, especially if you add a little water and break the curds up. The missus can't stand the smell, however, so I gave it up.
So I and my substandard intelligence have been watching some Crossfit Journal interviews with Scott Connelly, who I would very much like to chat with. I'm about halfway through the second video, and so far there are only a few points that irritated me:
1) Calories in - calories out = calories stored is a thermodynamic tautology. The real problem with applying it to fat loss is that the variables aren't independent. I think he knows this, he just worded it strangely.
2) The brain can run mostly on ketone bodies.
3) At about two minutes into the second video, he touches on differential insulin sensitivity, and I just about lost my mind when he backed away from that one. That's the most important thing by far.
Anyways, at 22:45 in the second video, he says:
The subsequent rant about grains is not strictly true (fiber -> fatty acid production by gut microflora, wheat gluten, etc.) but it's pretty decent nonetheless. Anyways, I just mentioned it because of the bit about fructose.Quote:
with the exception of fructose, which is a highly anomalous, highly lipogenic carbohydrate, it doesn't really matter where the carbohydrate's coming from. And this is another thing I take exception with - terms that are nonsense on their face, like "healthy grains". What the **** is healthy about a grain?
Saw this on the Interwebs today:
Not sure if it's true, but it does make a certain amount of sense.Quote:
Whilst WPI is marketed as a superior product to WPC, in most respects it is actually inferior due to its significantly lower levels (WPC contains up to 800% more) of a group of bioactive compounds known as ‘growth factors’ (IGF-1, IGF-2, TGF-B, PDGF and FGF). These growth factors are contained within the fat globule membrane of whey, but the further filtration required to produce WPI, also removes these beneficial fat globules in order achieve a fat content of less than 1%. Oral absorption of growth factors has been well documented and they have been shown to help improve wound healing as well as various afflictions of the gastrointestinal tract. They are also thought to exhert an anabolic effect if whey consumption is high enough.
Not much good news to report, sadly. I just finished with my organic chemistry final, although it'd be more accurate to say that it finished with me.
Also got an e-mail from my judo coach, asking whether/when I'm coming back. Don't really feel like answering that question.
I might be able to do something along the lines of BJJ in a while - perhaps wrestling, but even that's a stretch. But until they can cure traumatic brain injury, no more judo for me.
Also, it'd be a lie to say that I really enjoyed judo. I enjoyed the feeling of progress, that I was working toward something, but the actual class varied between "kinda fun" and "pain in the ass", depending on my mood.
"fructose, which is a highly anomalous, highly lipogenic carbohydrate"
Me eating apples = me getting fat.
Yes, no, maybe?
1696 - Apple, raw, with skin
1 large fruit
So I guess the question is how many you're eating.
