    Muscles & Health: Overview, Theories, Development, Etc

    So it seems some here have attacked Peat's general ideologies in respect to "muscle gainz" in a way -- i.e. some here discredit him because "his diet" doesn't necessarily encourage significant muscle growth in all (although I'd say here that almost no "diet" per se does this magically for...

    Thiamine HCL May Increase Muscle Mass

    Interesting study with chickens where Thiamine HCL (at reasonable dosages) increased muscle mass more than clenbuterol. (chickens have been known to be insensitive to beta-agonists though, so that part makes sense.) Breast muscle weight increased while total body weight went slightly down.

    Estrogen Is NOT Needed For Muscle / Bone Growth And Anabolism

    I have had my eye on posting this study for at least 3 years now but something more important always came up, so I kept putting it off. However, the recent thread posted on the forum about how estrogen is "essential" for health convinced me it is way overdue that I post something on this topic...

    Dietary Stearic Acid Reduces Visceral Fat By 70% And Increases Lean Mass

    This is a study that @Travis will probably like a lot. Stearic acid is one of the SFA that are considered anti-inflammatory even by mainstream science. It has pronounced anti-tumor effects in various cancer models, and one of the proposed mechanisms was its ability to reduce fat deposits. The...

    Fructose Is The Only Sugar Associated With Body Weight And Bone Health (in Infants)

    Another study suggesting fructose is probably not the villain we are led to believe it is, at least in infants. Fructose in Breast Milk Is Positively Associated with Infant Body Composition at 6 Months of Age "...Dietary sugars have been shown to promote excess adiposity among children and...

    Higher Muscle Mass Index (MMI) linked with lower mortality

    Ray has written about bodybuilders and muscular people in general having lower mortality, due to higher metabolism and ability to better metabolize harmful fats. This statement had been confirmed by several studies looking at BMI, but people with higher BMI have (on average) higher body fat and...

    High Protein Intake Increases Muscle Mass Even W/o Training

    We know that Ray recommends 80g+ of protein a day and says that ~120g should be enough even for the most active individuals. This study looked at what happens when you increase protein intake even more. There were 2 groups. The "normal" intake group consumed ~120g of protein a day and the high...

    Higher Muscle Mass Extends Life Expectancy

    People with more muscle mass also have higher metabolism. Even though the study did not make the connection between muscle mass and metabolism, it strengthens Ray's point that resistance exercise (only the concentric portion) is very protective. http://www.amjmed.com/article/S0002-934 ...
