Recently I've been experimenting with some ratio adjustments since struggling with hunger, bringing my fat intake to 60% of my total calories, carbs at 25-30%, and protein at around 15%, and feel BETTER THAN EVER. My digestion was doing perfectly... (more)

I can see the reasoning why you might want to learn the OHS first because a Snatch is "just" a pull into an OHS and then standing up with it. Just like the clean is "just" a pull into a front squat and then standing up with it. However, I tend... (more)

I disagree with MrsD about taste. (Just my humble opinion.) I prefer San-J gluten-free tamari and don't mind eating organic fermented soy, BUT.... I MUCH prefer coconut aminos over Braggs. I think Braggs tastes like garbage and adds a weird taste... (more)

Who do you think is right? Why? As far as I know: Berardi talks about Ecto/Meso/Endomorphs for fat/protein/carb ratios, Calories-In/Calories-Out, and Nutrient Timing (based on your workouts). Taubes talks about eating more fat, less carbs, and... (more)
