    Thanks, but i mean when calories have been dropped and refeeds have come down (when they arent even refeeds) or eliminated completely. (This is typical when someone is behind and time is running out)

    Also leptin levels aren't the sole indicator of metabolism.

    Hope Layne can answer ! Thanks again
    It's eat time!

    • honestly that is an absolute last ditch effort because only about 40% of the time does it work, and if it doesn't work, you get the exact opposite effect which puts you completely out of range if you are cutting it close, so normally I don't do it unless I have a VERY good idea of how the individual is going to respond

      • Layne I have a similar question.

        My Dad is a 50 year old runner, who is in great cardiovascular shape. He runs about 30 miles a week ( 3 runs 8-10 miles). He has a fair amount of fat that he wants to get rid of. He's not obese at all, but he has that skinny fat look to him if you know what I mean. Lower body fat, fair amount of muscle, but no definition, very smooth.

        He eats next to nothing, and I feel that this is why he can't lose any of the fat he has. I feel like his metabolism is probably really slow because he eats so infrequently. There are some days where he may eat literally no protein. He eat's no breakfast, and only snacks a bit at work on some pretzels, and his stable, a grapefruit (9-5 job). He'll occassionaly have a handful of chips as well. When he gets home he'll run on an empty stomach. After his run he'll usually have dinner an hour or so later. Dinner can be anything to him thats in the fridge. He doesn't over eat at Dinner by any means, but it is his largest meal of the day.

        My question is, don't you think my Dad could lose some subcutaneous fat if he started incorportating more food in his diet. Ex: more protein, BREAKFAST, smaller frequent meals, possibly some BCAA's before and after his run. And a low glycemic dinner? Thanks a lot man. I love your thread!

        • Layne, What are your thoughts in regards to Dr. Scott Connelly's views on amino acids and the unimportance of carbohydrates in the diet? I have listened to all of his segments on No Bull Radio and he makes some compelling arguments, but I would like to hear the views of another who is an expert in amino acid science.

            layne, funny thing is that my left quad is significantly bigger and more defined(especially the lateral portion) all from driving a stick shift. The clutch offer such little resistance it is practically just a flex or maybe an extremely light isometric hold. That and my left pec are by biggest priorities in terms of balance. Have you ever encountered this? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. By the way been catching up on zero carb thread in no bull and all I can say is I'm blow away with it. Thank you for contributing your time and experience. Usually the debatedson here make my head spin but that one has left me feeling better instead of confused for reading it.

                      • Hey Layne hope all is well mate.

                        Just wondering if you have written any articles on pre, during and post workout nutrition. I've been looking through your work over at bb.com. Just wondering if you could point me in the right direction.

                        Sorry if I missed it in this thread.

                        Thanks,

                            This summer I changed my seat position to better accomodate my lower back. The disc herniation accounts for my clutch leg actually being much weaker in all lower body lifts. Still the vastus lateralis is significantly more developed. I suppose it could just be where it attaches? It comes down fuller and closer to the knee cap. I just drew that conclusion since noticing it. Now when I feel my leg when I clutch the car that portion gets hard as a rock. It seems kinda of silly to me that it could make a difference but I dont know what else to make from it. The issue with my left pec I feel is from breaking my left wrist as a teenager.

                            • plenty of people have imbalances on one side of the body compared to the other. my pecs, biceps, triceps, quads, hames all have different shapes from one side to the other. I don't think the clutch being on that side made the difference

                                Did you do anything out of the ordinary? I guess Im asking if you think its worthwhile doing extra sets for the underdeveloped sides. Ive been trying the last few months as trying to feel the weaker sides working as much or more to
                                componsate for the strenght differences. It good to know that Im not unique. I was wondering if I could get some info on your training/prep. I dont feel I will be ready for a show for quite some time but I still would like to know the details. I realize you are highly sought after and extremely busy. Is it cool to shoot you an email?
