post #55156 of 57683

While we're still talking sneakers - Mike, I have to ask to quell my future worries...will you ever sell replacement laces for the unfinished horsehide sneakers? Just paranoid that one day I'll snap them, and replacements are never quite the same!

 

Thanks

On that note, I'd really like to replace my Calgary blucher laces. I can't find an appropriate match online.

As near as I can tell they're 6mm flat unwaxed cotton. I'm looking for a 36" pair to replace the 28" ones they came with.

Benjos / hangar project seem to only have 3mm waxed laces or round boot laces.

Real simply once you know your TDEE then you can set caloric intake for your goals- eg slight deficit, slight surplus or whatever. Protein will typically be set around 1 gram per pound body weight, fats around 25-40% of total caloric intake, and carbs for the rest. As you adjust during a weight loss or weight gain phase you have most room to adjust carbs, and fat depending where you choose to set it. Protein largely remains constant although during a prolonged deficit you'd likely want to increase slightly.

Ok sorry I'll stop... smile.gif


This theory is bunk, man (thermodynamics). Cals in/out is NOT true. lucky to have "good genes" that burn carbs or deal with carbs. Some (very few) do. I look at carbs and gain weight. Every*body* is different, but it is now well established how carb-cycling is terrible for your health.

marksdailyapple saved my life, literally. When I follow the formula, I feel amazing, look better, sleep better, and deal with stress better. His basic lifestyle changing ethos would help anyone. And most who somehow maintain a "cut" physique in middle to late age do it through hiit (sprinting, or other styles of short, intense work as the first cat to bring this up stated). Everyone needs to exercise, period. Move or atrophy.

Well said brother. Mark saved me too. I started researching diets and fell upon his site and never looked back. All backed with science. And the best part of the site are the responses.

 

ChrisKresser.com is also a valuable site.

 

Got to keep your gut healthy too! It's the key to everything!

 

The Human body does not need carbohydrates to survive.....Our ancestors ate carbs sparingly in the winter and used them as mostly fat replacement calories in the spring/summer when animals were more lean.

 

HIIT is where it's at. Long aerobic workouts cause internal inflammation and I bet raise peoples C-Factor.

 

Glad to hear you are doing so well!

I don't have an exercise/eating regimen, and generally don't give a shit about any of this stuff, but:

The way we measure food calories is basically to put food in a crucible and burn it, measuring the thermal output. Even the current method is basically a piecemeal proxy of that. It doesn't strain the imagination that your body will process the food differently than a fire.

Oh yeah? Very cool - I must have missed this. I still enjoy the epla engineer shirt from a while back.

Actually, using a bomb calorimeter (the crucible) is highly accurate.
A fire is mass, rapid, complete oxidization. That's what happens at a cellular level when you eat.
Calories in and out is absolutely, unequivocally correct. A calorie is simply a unit of energy. Energy surplus is stored. Energy deficit results in metabolism of energy stores (fat and muscle). That isn't biology that's physics.
Do you think your body knows, at a cellular level, whether your amino acids, fats, etc. came from a organic chicken, an avocado, or a powder? No, they don't.
We can keep people alive almost indefinitely using total parental nutrition (tpn) which is liquids through an IV.
However, eating "clean" does have benefits but they aren't nutritional. The poster who said he felt better eating paleo and reduced his IBS likely had a food allergy which was eliminated by changing his diet. Some allergies cause anaphylaxis others an inconvenience. A number of foods likely cause a degree of allergy that manifests as some tyoe of issue (IBS, bloating, changes to micro flora, or gastric mucosa) that may effect digestion or metabolism. This is not the same as saying that the nutritional content is different or superior in a paleo diet.
Also the term paleo is dumb. Which time period is correct for a paleo diet? Which geographic region? We've been farming, breeding crops and animals for thousands of years. These things change what would be considered paleo substantially.
That said the paleo diet isn't bad (it's actually pretty decent), but the logic behind it is flawed. It generally gets a good ratio or fat/protein/carb and includes good amounts of fiber.
I bet if you say down and really mapped out a paleo diet it would be pretty close to what Tricky laid out. However, trickys diet goes a step further to help you get really cut as opposed to being a solid day to day diet.

The new shoes look great! I love both of the grey ones. I was totally lookin for grey suede but that horsehide has me on the fence now

Do you think your insulin levels react according to whether you eat a steak or a bowl of skittles?  Notwithstanding that this has all  been a huge tangent, I've found most of the posts genuinely helpful even if everyone does not agree.  Calories in/out may be academically correct but people are different and I think much of the science is still out -- or we'd be a much thinner country.

Of course it reacts differently. But if you were to receive adequate amounts of protein and fats through diet and received an appropriate number of carbohydrates through skittles (as opposed to through fruit or some other food) you would be fine. The bigger difference in a skittle is not the skittle itself, but that people eat a bag off them at once (insulin surge) if you at 1 per hour it would mitigate that (and mimic the carbs from an IV drip, which we know is safe). I don't think anyone was arguing skittles as a replacement for fruit. However, skittles aren't that different from the sources of carbohydrates in a TPN.
We, as a nation, are fat because we don't exercise, and exhibit poor portion control. There have been people who eat ridiculous diets of junk food, but strictly control the quantity and don't gain weight. It proves the point
