  1. http://www.musclemedia.com/training/abcde/v58_abc1.asp The above link is highly recommended... I did it for about 5 years. It worked really well. Allowed me to keep bodyfat down while gaining muscle. I do something different now though... only been doing it for about 6 weeks and can't yet say for sure that it works better than the above. Details of that are in your other thread.
  2. Interesting article. So perhaps the concern about BP and aging is not really important after all.
  3. That makes sense. I don't know how different types of carbs affect me. I did'nt experiment with that, instead, I dropped my total carbs very low. The most accepted carb/insulin theory suggests that high GI carbs are the 'bad' ones. It is possible that lots of low GI carbs would be ok. If your interested in the theory about building muscle on a lower carb diet you can check out: http://www.extique.com/nhe.html the link for 'ask Rob' is interesting.
  4. G.B. Forbes, et al., "Hormonal Response to Overfeeding," Am. J. Clin. Nutr. 49.4 (1989) : 608-611. Anabolic hormones affect acne. Anabolic hormones increase with overfeeding. http://thefactsaboutfitness.com/print/20jun2004.htm High carbs are not needed for muscle growth. Insulin IS important, but a lot is not needed. Low GI carbs and protein stimulate a fine low level insulin response. If you notice an effect when you start your bulk... now you have options.
  5. http://dermnetnz.org/site-age-specific/ageing.html Photoageing changes Photoageing or sun damage results in fine lines and wrinkles, discolouration and textural changes. The epidermis becomes thinner so the skin easily blisters, tears and grazes. The skin feels dry because it is less able to hold onto water. Overactivity of tanning cells (melanocytes) results in blotchy pigmentation with brown freckles (lentigines) and white marks (idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis). Yellow thickened bumps
  6. Thank you for a great post! It worked for me and is still working... When I switched to low carb eating my skin got much clearer. In combination with Dan's regime my skin is now clear (no active acne). I've been eating LC for about 3 months and doing the regime for 1 month. It truely is worth trying.
  7. Yeah... I wish I would have known about myopia and carbs BEFORE I had to get glasses. My vision has not gotten any worse in the last couple years, so I guess I can't complain. I think the palieodiet is interesting... I do something more geared toward bodybuilding though. It's based on a book called Natural Hormone Enhancement (NHE) Basicaly I eat very low carb everyday (around 20 grams, all from veggies) and two nights a week (Sun., & Wed.) I have a high carb meal (100 grams + ) right
  8. High insulin may be a contributing factor in acne, nearsightedness, male pattern balding, as well as many other things. Hyperinsulinemic diseases of civilization: more than just Syndrome X.

  9. I agree... I can totally find a girl attractive regardless of acne. I wonder if we feel this way because we don't have perfect skin?? I'd like to know how people who have never had acne feel about this.
  10. Does anyone know if hormones are found in butter? Since dairy products have 3 parts (carb (lactose), protein, and fat) I'm wondering how the amount of hormones is different when comparing milk, cheese, and butter... My question really is... Do the hormones (or suspected acne causeing agents) in milk make it through the processing into butter? It's not that I can't live without butter... but melted on veggies... I do enjoy it. Another question is what about Whey?? It's highly processed and
  11. Here is a website with some pics. Everyone has makeup on though. http://itsb.ucsf.edu/~vcr/SpotAcneHeroes.html
