I've heard that probiotics need food to feed off of so that's the basis of my question. From my research (although it seems to be an unclear topic), the best time to take a probiotic is about 30 minutes before a meal to let it sit in the stomach... (more)
I think the answer is you should take the calcium and magnesium at the same time, and that the Vitamin D3 can be taken whenever. In fact, I think prescription mega dose vitamin D is given once/week. The brand of K2 I use is life extension k2... (more)
My question is when should one eat carbohydrate for optimal glycogen replenishment AND bodyfat reduction? Does it matter for the purpose of bodyfat reduction BELOW 10%? The two main protocols I'd like to compare are Leangains and Carb... (more)
I've been doing leangains for 3 months. I'm now more ripped than I even thought possible. To say it works is an understatement! My eating window is 12pm-8pm, two meals. No carbs rest days, very low fat training days. I get up at 5am and... (more)
I'm going to say that the 16 hour fast isn't so important for some of us. I did 16 weeks of LGs until the hunger and mood issues were too much to deal with, plus my fat loss had greatly slowed. Keeping the same daily calorie/macro numbers, I added... (more)
For the last few months I've been training fasted 3 days a week. I try to wait around a hour after waking up to train. 2 of the workouts are geared around the heavy compound movements (deads, squats, presses) and 1 day is a bodyweight crossfit... (more)
Protein I used to be the same way in college, with respect to the heavy meat and protein consumption. I didn't want to skimp on protein because I wanted to get as much muscle growth from my workouts as possible. I'm now convinced that huge... (more)
I came across another thread, and people kept suggesting that the questioner eat fruit separately from other foods, and dont eat within an hour before or after eating it. WHY?! I like to eat berries with breakfast or lunch....if this is messing me... (more)
I am working my back to being Paleo/Primal after a few months away due to, well, life. I'm determined to make this a lifestyle change and not just a short term diet. I do have a fitness questions. It is easiest for me to get in my workout around... (more)
I get about 8-9 hours a night but i'm always tired the next day. I'm on summer break so i usually sleep from 2-3 am to 11 am. Would i do better for some (possibly paleo) reason sleeping 10-11 pm to 6-7 am. So i'd be getting the same amount of... (more)
Ive read a few times on here that it is best to not eat fat when you consume fructose (or maybe it was sugar/carbs in general)? whats so crucial about the timing? thanks!
What is the best time to exercise on an intermittent fasting schedule? Specifically for weight loss, or more generally for just overall fitness. For example, I eat from about noon until 5 or 6pm every day, and fast from when I stop eating until... (more)
Does it matter how or when? Empty stomach? With food? Before food? After food? Early morning? Evening? The only thing I heard is that it is useful to take it with some fat.
I currently do CF workouts 3x week in the early morning (6:00am, sometimes earlier). I've been thinking about changing the time of my workouts to the evening (after 6:00pm), and I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion about morning vs. evening... (more)
There have been quite a few questions/posts around the web on the best time of the day to supplement with Vitamin D3 with regards to improving sleep (or at least not disturbing sleep). Most views seems to be based on experience and/or conjecture. ... (more)
Seth Roberts has been collecting anecdotes from people taking vitamin D in the early morning and reporting improved sleep. He thinks the body might interpret it like sunlight. Robb Wolf, on the other hand, finds that taking VD3 at night works... (more)
I got the idea from Tara Grant. Her sleep instantly improved when she started taking Vitamin D3 first thing in the morning instead of mid-afternoon or early evening.
Hi I'm interested in nutrient-timing and powerlifting, obviously. I don't know much about the first. Searching the site I see nutrient-timing related comments in the answers to related questions, but I'm interested in seeing them discussed on one... (more)
What???s your view on the recent emerging buzz that the typical hunter-gatherer tribe eats only once a day? If humans can only absorb around 35g of protein at one time, this would mean that even H-Gs eating very high protein diets would ACTUALLY... (more)
Does eating closer to sleep time affect weight loss/body composition? Does eating near bedtime really contribute to fat/weight gain? I'm asking because my schedule tends to push me towards more late dinners (as in eating an hour or two before... (more)
I use to work a normal 8-5 job m-f and I fasted daily until noon when I took my lunch. I would spend 30 minutes doing cardio in a fasted state then come back and have a protein shake and veggies. That was the best I have ever looked! And life was... (more)
Maybe ditch the fasting. Fasting is a stresser & you said life was simple back then. You'll be fighting an up hill battle. Don't believe me? Head on over to leangains.com Mark has a post about hormones and the same timing of daily meals.
I've heard that eating different foods at separate times is better. For example, eat meat for one meal, veggies for another meal, etc. Thoughts? Data?
It sounds similar to sequential eating. I tend to use sequential eating and it has definitely improved my digestion. drbass.com/sequential
Any thoughts on the validity of late meals -- 9:30PM or later -- negatively impacting liver function? I tend to eat only 2 meals per day but because of work, my evening meal (the biggest) is late. So I have a small meal around noonish and then my... (more)
With all due respect, this sounds like ancient Chinese Broscience to me. Unless your organs have unionized or something, they better be working 'round the clock.
My hubby and I have instituted earlier bedtime -- lights out by 11:00 and often earlier. I also started eating breakfast plus lunch and dinner and make sure I'm done eating by 7:00PM and hoping to push this earlier. My post-prandials and morning... (more)
Your fear of carbs is unfounded, no one develops diabetes from eating natural carbs, some doctors even cure diabetes with high carb diets. If your trying to maintain weight your doing yourself a disservice by limiting carbs.
Anybody have any low carb recipes? For this that I can get a good amount of this in a day. ALSO Is it best to consume this in the earlier in the day since it is a ROOT veggies and not at night. Usually at night I just drink a glass of it , about... (more)
