What should a man in his fifties fitness program look like?

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

I am interested in what other men in their fifties do for high level fitness training. I have been working out throughout my adult life but I wonder how other guys have adapted their workouts.

Many men don’t get regular physicals. If you have seen your doctor and have been given approval, then up your level. For this, talk to a trainer who understands the needs of men at this age. If your knees are in good shape, and your heart is good, and you pass a Thalium stress test, I don’t see why there would be a need to cut back.

Is there a good health insurance for college students?

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

I am a sophomore in college and have not had health or dental insurance since I was a little kid. I can’t be on my mom’s insurance cause the price will sky rocket. I have a part time job so I don’t get health benefits at work. Is there some type of health insurance that has good coverage but also doesn’t cost too much since I don’t make too much?

What food has good nutrition and food that can be full?

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Carbohydrate food can get full and they are cheap, but it does not have nutrition. I heard meat has lots of nutrition and it can make stomach full, so I eat meat. But they cost lot, and tastes get board.

Potato’s are super healthy. They have carbs, protein, and a ton of vitamins! Tomato’s, squash, and sweet potato also are highly nutritious and yummy! I like meat too though. A nice steak would be great to go with the potato.

What is the best thing to take besides steroids and HGH to get big?

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

I just joined a gym and I want to get huge as fast as possible. I know to diet properly and drink tons of water, I just want to know what I should take outside of steroids and HGH to get big the fastest way. Steroids and HGH are both dangerous and expensive so I don’t want to take them. I will be lifting about 5 times a week so wondered if anything outside of those will be the fastest way to get big.

What affordable health insurance is the best?

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

I will be divorced in 2 months and will have to find my own health insurance. I have been with Anthem for 14 years and have no health problems and no medications except 1 blood pressure pill a day. I am waiting for a quote from Anthem for a single policy but I am afraid it will not be affordable. Thanks for all the help I can get!

What are some nutrition myths to debunk for children?

What are some nutrition myths to debunk for children? Making a quiz/measurement.

The link between saturated fats and heart health was based on faulty science & has been disproven. Dietary fat, whether saturated or not, is not a cause of obesity, heart disease, or any other chronic disease of civilization. Through their direct effects on insulin and blood sugar, refined carbohydrates, starches and sugars are the dietary cause of coronary heart disease and diabetes.

Plaque build up in the arteries are more attributable to carb consumption than dietary fats, which seems to be the conclusion of the following study. Carb consumption raises triglycerides & VLDL (bad cholesterol). Fats raise the HDL (good cholesterol). High triglyceride levels & low HDL levels are an indicator of plaque, glycation – the precursors to a heart attack and heart disease.

study from the Oxford group examining the postprandial (after-eating) effects of a low-fat vs. low-carbohydrate diet. (Roberts R et al, 2008)

Postprandial lipoproteins, you’d think, would be plentiful after ingesting a large quantity of fat, since fat must be absorbed via chylomicrons into the bloodstream. But it’s carbohydrates that figure most prominently in determining the pattern and magnitude of postprandial triglycerides and lipoproteins. Much of this effect develops by way of de novo lipogenesis, the generation of new lipoproteins like VLDL after carbohydrate ingestion.

Reasons to Eat More Saturated Fat

1) Improved cardiovascular risk factors

Saturated fat in the diet reduces the levels of lipoprotein (a) abbreviated Lp(a)—that correlates strongly with risk for heart disease. The only dietary means of lowering Lp(a) is eating saturated fat. Eating fats raises the level of HDL, the so-called good cholesterol.

2) Stronger bones

Saturated fat is required for calcium to be incorporated into bone – According to expert in human health, Mary Enig, Ph.D., as much as 50 percent of the fats in the diet should be saturated fats.

3) Improved liver health

Studies show that saturated fat encourages the liver cells to dump fat content. Saturated fat has been shown to protect the liver from the toxic insults of alcohol & medications and even to reverse the damage.

4) Healthy lungs

For proper function, the airspaces of the lungs have to be coated with a thin layer of lung surfactant. The fat content of lung surfactant is 100 percent saturated fatty acids. Replacement of these critical fats by other types of fat makes faulty surfactant & potentially causes breathing difficulties, collapse of the airspaces & respiratory distress.

5) Healthy brain

Your brain is mainly made of fat & cholesterol. Though highly unsaturated essential fatty acids found in cold-water fish (EPA & DHA) are important for brain & nerve function, most of the fatty acids in the brain are actually saturated. The brain needs saturated fats to function optimally.

6) Proper nerve signaling

Certain saturated fats, found in butter, lard, coconut oil, & palm oil, function directly as signaling messengers that influence the metabolism. Without the correct signals to tell the organs & glands what to do, the job gets done improperly.

7) Strong immune system

Saturated fats found in butter & coconut oil (myristic acid & lauric acid) play key roles in immune health. Loss of sufficient saturated fatty acids in the white blood cells hampers their ability to recognize & destroy foreign invaders, such as viruses, bacteria, & fungi. Myristic & lauric acid have potent germ-killing ability. We need dietary replenishment of them to keep the immune system vigilant against the development of cancerous cells & infectious invaders.

Saturated fats play many important biologic roles. They are an integral component of cell membranes, which are 50 percent saturated fat. Lung surfactant is composed entirely, when available, of one particular saturated fat, 16-carbon palmitic acid. Properly made with this fat, it prevents asthma and other breathing disorders. For nourishment, heart muscle cells prefer saturated long-chain palmitic and 18-carbon stearic acid over carbohydrates. Saturated fats are required for bone to assimilate calcium effectively. They help the liver clear out fat and provide protection from the adverse effects of alcohol and medications like acetaminophen. Medium-chain saturated fats in butter and coconut oil, 12-carbon lauric acid and 14-carbon myristic acid, play an important role in the immune system. They stabilize proteins that enable white blood cells to more effectively recognize and destroy invading viruses, bacteria, and fungi, and also fight tumors. Saturated fatty acids function as signaling messengers for hormone production, including insulin. And saturated fats signal satiety. Not surprisingly, given all these biological functions, saturated fats make up 54 percent of the fat in mother’s breast milk (monounsaturated fats are 39 percent; and polyunsaturated fats, a tiny 3 percent).

What is the best HGH product to take if I’m looking to increase my height?

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

I am a 6’1, 18 year-old male. I would like to grow taller. My goal height is 6’4 or 6’5. Preferably 6’5. What HGH product would help me attain this goal the best?

No HGH product in the world is going to help you grow 4 inches or even 1 inch. It’s in your DNA how tall you will grow. Especially at 18, you’re pretty much done growing for the most part.
