    Thyroid dosing during bike tour

    Hi smart people on the internet. Looking for some advice here. I am about to embark on a 25 day bike tour. Not for the purpose of exercise (I know this will negatively affect my metabolism) but for the thrill of adventure. I was taking 25mg of Thyrovanz over the winter/spring and then stopped...

    Vitamin E reduces exercise-induced muscle damage

    Nothing much to add here and the article title is essentially identical to my post. I am mostly posting this as a possible "remedy" for the many people who engage in endurance exercise, usually with the (misguided) goal to lose weight. As the study says, the effects of vitamin E are most...

    Fasting/exercise/lowcarb/keto may promote cancer (melanoma) metastasis

    Quite the title for this post, but I think the evidence from the study below is clear. Namely, chronic activation of the so-called "master metabolic sensor" AMPK is a key mechanism through which melanoma cells rewire their metabolism from higher into lower OXPHOS, change their physical structure...

    Regaining weight post diet/exercise due to lowered metabolism by increased PUFA in cardiolipin

    This is by far the most significant study I have seen come out in the last 2-3 years, simply because of the impact it has on virtually every person out there who has tried to lose excess weight (and who hasn't?). Virtually every person considering (or having done) dieting/exercise to lose excess...

    Century-long metabolic decline, not less exercise and/or more eating, causing the obesity epidemic

    I did a few posts years ago on the alarming findings that the youngest generations are among the most physically active, consume the least amount of calories, yet are the most obese (on average) compared to previous generations going back to at least the 1950s. Those studies did not look at...

    I Don't Exercise -- I Play

    When I look back on my childhood, it's striking how much time I spent playing. Every day after the last bell rang, I'd spend hours hanging around the schoolyard playing pickup basketball or touch football. In the summers I'd wander out of my house around 9am and come back around 8pm, having...

    Eating beans, seeds, and rock powders for better bowel movements (and overall health)

    On account of having an immensely positive experience with the forbidden fruits of the title, I'm excited to share all that comes to mind on the subject. This will be a stream-of-consciousness monologue. Insofar that the format is lazy, I apologize. _____________________________ Nuts, seeds...

    CoQ10 (Ubiquinone) reduces exercise induced lactate increase

    Effects of oral coenzyme Q10 on preventing the accumulation of lactic acid developing during the exercise performances of endurance skiing athletes CoQ10 levels are often reduced in people who do a lot of exercise, people who take statins. 300mg+ may interfere with exercise adaptation. but...

    Exhaustive eccentric exercise (EEE), such as running, causes hyperlipidemia and liver damage

    ...and vitamin D can apparently reverse those negative effects, when given at a dose of just 2,000 IU daily during the exercise time period. In addition, the vitamin D supplementation resulted in a significantly bigger weight (fat) loss than the group doing only exercise. I think the biggest...

    Elite Athletes’ Gut Bacteria Give Rodent Runners a Boost. The chemical these bacteria produce appears to enhance athleticism.

    The study began with an assessment of 15 runners and a comparison of bacterial strains present in their stool before and after they completed the Boston Marathon. The investigators identified a boost in the presence of species the bacterium Veillonella after the marathon, especially Veillonella...

    "Endurance" exercise ages the vascular system of males by more than a decade

    A very interesting study, though I don't really agree with its findings that while "endurance" (in this case running) exercise damages male vascular system it is beneficial for the female one. The majority of intervention studies that looked at both sexes, across all age groups found that...

    Endurance exercise is bad for dental/oral health

    It is common knowledge among dentists that athletes often have poor teeth. However, there aren't that many studies on the subject and most of this knowledge is considered anecdotal, so the question of whether some types of exercise are actually detrimental for dental health is not even asked...

    Tingly toes after exercise, but not with carbs

    Something I've noticed. After doing yardwork, my toes get tingly. This is the case when I haven't eaten carbs. However, I don't feel exhausted. I also am able to do only a tiny amount of work. If I've eaten carbs and then do the work, I don't get the tingles. Instead I'll get exhausted...

    Flu like feeling after sprints - does this get better or is it just a bad sign?

    After reading some older posts by @Amarsh213 I tried short burts of sprinting, 3-4 times every other day. However, I've noticed some pretty intense flu-like aches in the days following. Is this just sprinting engaging large muscles groups in ways I'm not used to? Or is the gut releasing...

    Exercise brain-boost may be due simply to increasing brain selenium levels

    Yet another study demonstrating that many of the "mysterious" benefits of exercise most likely have nothing to do with the (insignificant) amount of extra calories burned, but are due to peripheral effects related to metabolism and redox balance. Namely, the study below investigates the...

    Exercise causing inflammation

    Hi everyone! Wondering if some of you may be able to shed some light on a pattern I seem to go through. I’ve struggled with weight my whole life, but particularly after having kids. The only time I was really thin was when I was running 3-5kms a day. After discovering peat a while ago I’ve...

    Exercise causes (and worsens) arterial calcification

    A great new study sent to me by one of my readers. It will more than likely cause a lot of controversy, despite its findings having a very simple explanation. Namely, chronic exercise increases baseline cortisol and over time, cortisol (acting through the aldosterone/mineralocorticoid receptor)...
