  • what would u consider to be fibrous carbs?

    Comment


    • well obviously things like veggies are super high fiber. But even things like oatmeal, low fat popcorn, beans are all high in fiber content

        • man you guys really over analyze this. I just gave baked lays as an example. lol. It's not like I got an IV drip of baked lays because they are super anabolic LOL. Fruit is perfectly fine. You are just looking to get like 15-25g of carbs or so

                  I just want to say that glutamine is very important in healing the lining of the intestine's for me. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis last year, and luckily i'm able to control it but I've had several flareups and it's no fun. I've done lot's of medical research on supplements to take to help control the disease and glutamine, fish oil, and flaxseed oil are the best ones. I take glutamine several times a day to help in keeping the lining of the colon healthy and my disease seems under control. As far as supplements to avoid, medical research links nitric oxide to colitis and colon cancer. It mentions how it promotes tumor progression and initiation for someone with precancerous cells and also promotes cellular growth in the ulcers forming in colitis. I don't recommend NO products, once I've read all that stuff I through out all my nitric oxide sample packets, I dont wanna take any chances. But anyways, as far as glutamine is concerned, I believe it is crucial in recovery and promoting immune health, It certainly helps me keep my condition under control, that's for sure.

                    I agree...it has helped a couple clients of mine that have Crohn's disease, and there is supporting literature for glutamine in that regards.

                    What Layne is saying has to do with the various other bogus claims that glutamine has an effect on protein synthesis and/or degradation...which is on a completely different end of the spectrum than what you're talking about.

                    Although paulwnbf didn't specifically state he was asking about glutamine in reference to body composition, it seems intuitive that was what he was incinuating...

                      Not unless you have a medical condition or a true endomorph that would cause you to have to pay attention to that kind of detail. Judging from your avatar, unless you are a diabetic, the answer is "no" for you...

What you'll find is most people with GREAT calves, had pretty darn good calves to begin with. I remember I met a guy who had unreal no joke 20" calves. I asked him what he did for them and he said "walk up stairs" I asked how big they were when he started training and he said '19" lol

                        what worked for me is working them 2-3x/week and just beating the living shit out of them. Drop sets, super sets, negatives, for real high volume just absolutely beating them mercelessly. That's the only thing that ever got them to budge.
                        thanks for the reply, i appreciate it =] i am in the same boat as you i believe. i have been training calves for over two years now and they have gone from 14" to 15". LMAO

                          This takes a lot of patience but works well
                          appreciate it layne. do you generally see people's weights going down after adding 10 grams of carbs? I found this surprising since after the cut I'd assume you would be doing far less cardio and at a plateau of weight loss, so I'm surprised how adding food would continue to make you lighter?

                          10g is week is definitely slow. Is this number a percentage of the dietary carbs consumed during the cut? Would 10 grams be also what someone of your size would use as the incremental change?

                          what about fats/protein?

                            didn't mention it but I have written that before: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne37.htm

                            for inflammatory bowel disorders yes I believe it is helpful because it is a major fuel for the enterocyte. But there is 0 evidence it aids in muscular recovery

                              honestly this is so individual and so complex based on various different variables it's tough for me to put any hard #s on it speaking about it generally
