Leangains recommends 16 hrs of fasting. I personally feel best eating twice between 3-4pm and 7-8pm. On rest days that's it. On training days I lift 11-12pm and take whey/BCAA at the end of the workout, then eat my real food on the same... (more)

I study anatomy and physiology and my lecturer said that people usually go into a state of gluconeogenesis (conversion of amino acids and fats to carbs) in around 6-10 hours without eating. This state is brought on after the liver has run out of... (more)
Sorry for the lack of creativity in the name. I am a 22 year old who has been paleo for give or take a year. I can't lie and say that it has been 100%. I was for like 4 months but then the holidays came and I fell off the bandwagon. Have been... (more)
I think every guy should buzz their head once in their life for the sake of doing it, unfortunately I tried it and can officially say I'm not one who can pull off the buzz cut. I have a few weddings coming up in a couple months, anyway to... (more)
I've been paleo for three months now and I have noticed some new growth. I have always had very fine hair that would easily break and I wonder if there are some specific foods I can eat to grow thicker,longer hair?

There isn't enough context in this post. Information like age, what GH readings you got on an endocrine panel. The standard GH deficiency test is an i.v. push of insulin after an overnight fast. What were the results? If you've had no tests done... (more)
