Nutrition Products – Do They Work?

September 22, 2016 philife 0

The nutrition industry is big money as it’s total revenue is above $100 billion dollars per year! This is nothing to sneeze at.

So with all of this money spent on healthy foods, vitamins supplements and the like wouldn’t you expect the population to be getting healthier and leaner?

Unfortunately you can’t purchase ‘weight loss’ and you can’t purchase ‘health’. Both are the result of your lifestyle and there is no amount of supplements and designer foods that will deliver.

In this podcast we’ll talk about the disconnect between nutrition and health products and what they’re doing for your health.…


The Anabolic Continuum

September 22, 2016 philife 0

Research on muscle building report a wide range of responders. There are those who gain virtually no muscle or strength, and there are those who have very impressive gains. If the weight training program was the same then the people doing the training must be different.

The response you will get from a weight training program is dependent upon your anabolic sensitivity. A number of factors go into assessing your anabolic sensitivity including age, training status, type of training, genetic predisposition, somatotype.

All of these factors collectively come together as a way of explaining where you land on the Anabolic Continuum.

In today’s lesson we’ll discuss what a confounding variable is, and explain that one of the biggest confounding variables in muscle building research is the anabolic sensitivity of each subject. Until researchers start categorizing where their subjects are on the Anabolic Continuum they will continue to have inconclusive results.…


Anabolic Slow Down

The effectiveness of your weight training workouts might be dependent upon where you are in the anabolic continuum.

This may be why different people get different results on the same workout program.

Where you are in the anabolic continuum may also be you best indicator of which exercise program to choose.

In todays podcast we’ll discuss the concept of Anabolic Slow Down and Anabolic Resistance, and your “Training Age” vs your “Biological Age”

We believe this is the biggest confounding variable in resistance training research and the reason why results are not consistent.…


Fasting for Life Extension

September 22, 2016 philife 0

Life extension and anti aging products are becoming more and more popular ranging from diet protocols, to drugs, supplements, workouts and other medical therapies.

One of the biggest and most common claims of life extension comes from the benefit of intermittent fasting (up to 30-40 years life extension)

But how could we ever actually measure this? It would take at least an entire lifetime to know if it actually works.

The only way to prove if something actually works for life extension would be to study someone for their entire life (and a long one at that!) How could we ever do this?

It seems that life extension therapies or techniques aren’t something we could actually experiment or test just yet.

The best we can do is find centenarians (people who live to at least 100) and super centenarians (people who live to at least 110) and ask them how they did it!…
