Its possible you need Magnesium. There are lots of threads on dosing and types. Also, how about stopping the Glutamine and see what happens (why are you taking it?) Good luck

Do you use a heart rate monitor during your workouts and do you trust the calories burned info it provides? I have a Polar RS300x, about which I have read good reviews as far as accuracy. I typically do 1.5 hour workout comprised of weight... (more)

I didn't look up your model of HRM (because I am lazy), but I think my Polar FT4 or 7 (can't remember) is extremely accurate. The watch does have inputs for age, height, and weight. It is important to have one with a chest strap for the best... (more)

Based on a few factors, it's seems I've always had a 'fast' metabolism. My mother certainly told me so growing up because of my activity level and large appetite. What affects the body's metabolism rate? Are there any benchmarks of what it should... (more)

This tool uses the commonly used Harris Benedict equation for BMR: http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/harris-benedict-equation/ Your metabolism could vary some from this, but probably not more than 10% either way. Activity has a big... (more)

OK, so self-admittedly I haven't exercised besides speed walking and some light yoga in any serious way in more than 8 years. I'm 10 months post-partum and down 50 pounds with another 50 to go on a lacto-paleo diet. I tried to work out today and... (more)

Sounds to be orthostatic hypotension. There could be several causes, but postpartum mothers are one group that its prevalent in. If walking does not cause this I would recommend just sticking to brisk walking until you get a full check up to... (more)

Hey all: Proteins differ in their assimilation rates, as I've read(whey being fast absorbing, beef being slow/slowest of food sources). My question is about nitrogen balance and assimilation rate: If one follows the IF-style diet(or a 'regular'... (more)
