  • Hey Layne, I looked around and didn't see this question but it has to do with water intake as you near a contest.

    I was looking through some other threads on Natty BB, which I am, and was wondering what you thought on water depletion as a contest gets nearer. Some guys cut it out while others seem to keep it in based on the idea that much of the muscle is water and depleting will be both detrimental health wise and also not have the muscles in fullest form.

    Just curious as I plan on stepping on stage in October and need to put some plan of attack together.

    Thanks
    Jeremy

      In the same light as someone with serious kidney issues consuming high protein diet. You have an underlying issue...dont do something that will aggravate or exacerbate.

      I just hate how they presented the article to be anti weight lifting, like if you lift heavy weights for say in the 4-6 rep range you need to worry about ripping arteries and giving yourself a heart attack, when in reality you are strengthing your cardiovascular system and strengthing your cardiac output. I see it all the time and read it alot about how weight lifting is bad for your heart. It's only now they are coming out with studies that are saying weight lifting should be part of everyones routine and even for heart attack patients.

      • Any opinion on D-aspartic acid in regards to how it increases LH and test levels? And the effect size of any significant findings.

        Thanks!

          you're kidding right? I've written about this at least a two dozen times on this message board and I wrote a 3 part series in MD about this very subject. I've also written several online articles regarding it

          In short, cutting water/sodium is bullshit

            one other factor, if you char the meat the charred portions have polyaromatic hydrocarbons which are carcinogenic. So don't eat burnt meat

                seems to be very scientifically valid and initial anecdotal reports are quite good

                  Thanks Layne, I looked through like 50-60 pages on here and just said screw it.haha I'll do some more searching and check out your articles.

                  • Do you have studies on eating eggs raw vs cooked? I have heard numerous times cooked absorbs better, but what I'd realy like to see is if blending the raw eggs changes this? The consistancy goes from thick gooey slime to actual liquid... Not sure if it matters. Also would it matter if it were whole raw eggs vs raw egg whites???

                        no it must be cooked. cooking it changes the protein structure to make it more bioavailable

                            I've heard that the reason this happens is because cooking it denatures the protein, which blending does as well. So blending doesn't do this?

                            • Dr. Scott Connelly and Carbs

                              Hi Layne, I recently have been using Dr. Scott Connelly's line of progenex products and in the process emailed him if I should be using carbs with the shakes after a weight training bout. He said without uncertainty, there has never been a study published showing carbs has any influence or benefit in the protein synthesis of new muscle tissue. I already know your take on this, therefore, I'm wondering what your response would be to someone making this statement who clearly is an expert in this field as well as yourself.

                              • Hey Layne,

                                I've been seeing an endocrinologist lately because it appears I may be suffering from secondary hypogonadism (failure of pituitary gland to produce proper hormones). I'm getting and MRI soon to see if its caused by a tumor on the gland itself. The treatment is typically human Chorionic Gonadotropin and Testosterone injections. Does this mean I can never compete in a natural show if I have to take these drugs? This is really a bind for me because my test, LH, and FSH levels are all way below normal range and I want to be healthy and all, but how does this effect eligibility for natural contests?
