The fallacy of protein content

0 Comment

Just recently I saw a post where a guy said to a sick bodybuilder: “Eat a lot of amaranth and quinoa, so you won’t loose muscle while you’re sick”. It’s not only about protein content. It’s also about protein quality and digestability. Protein has been “quantified” in it’s “usefulness” for the body. This originates in […]

Focus on the outcome

0 Comment

The target of bodybuilding is the growth of lean muscle mass. Marketing tricks you into believing in fantastic results and fast progression. That’s not how bodybuilding works. Look at the investment what you have (money, time, effort) and look at the outcome what you get in return. Whenever you engage in activity, a product or […]

BCAA’s are overrated

0 Comment

I read often posts about how much BCAA’s should be taken and how important they are. BCAA’s are necessary to grow muscle, but only the initiation. All the other amino acids are needed too to make the muscle truly grow. […] they have presented us with intriguing evidence that despite the potent anabolic properties of leucine […]

Ketogenic diet in bodybuilders

0 Comment

Today, I was asked why I do not recommend a ketogenic diet more often, because it is so good to lose fat and build muscle. This may be true, but under following conditions: It must be hypocaloric, the workout is super strenuous and the athlete experienced. Most people want to build muscle. The biochemical 1×1 sets […]

Pro-hormones: Steroids in disguise

0 Comment

I had a few questions lately about pro-hormones, and i need to point out some things here: Pro-hormones are steroids. They are not “more natural” or “less harmful” and as “powerful as the real suff”. They have the same suppressive effect on your own production of testosterone and your semen production, as the “real” anabolic […]

Whey or Aminos?

0 Comment

A friend of mine recents boasted about his post-workout shake. A very elaborate mixture of glutamine, BCAAs and other ingredients. Now, I asked myself.. ist that clever? Whey is made up by of the following amino acids: 1/6th of whey protein is glutamine, 1/4 are BCAAs and 1/4 are other semi- or essential amino acids. 1/3 of […]

Eggs and cholesterol

0 Comment

In my diet, you put 6 whole eggs in the morning… Isn’t that bad for my cholesterol? No. I cite from the citation of Gray et al: This myth prevails despite strong evidence to show that the effects of cholesterol-rich foods on blood cholesterol are small and clinically insignificant. It also prevails in the face […]

Don’t cheat yourself

0 Comment

Last saturday I was in a gym in Vienna where I could observe a guy doing a vigorous workout. However, his workout was far from truly achieving what he wanted. He was quite thin and his workout suggested that he tried to change that since quite a while. Watching him doing lat pulldowns was quite […]

Snacks while being away

0 Comment

How can I maintain my diet while I am traveling? I don’t want it to be too difficult, as traveling as such is already too time consuming… It’s not easy to maintain a reasonable diet when you’re travelling. So quick snacks come in handy: Cottage cheese. A good low carb variant of protein source. Add […]
