A small rant, then it gets to the point of the thread, lol

They should take each over-the-counter so called fat burning pills, make them completely illegal and throw all of them in the friggen trash so it doesn't continually feed bull-sh#t and stink up the mind of the general public.

Over the counter fat loss products, are designed to manipulate the consumers personal senses; it goes to the very core in what the potential buyer is trying to manipulate. And, this sells products.

And, in the marketing sense, this works and is a powerful manipulative force to one that doesn’t look at these products through: Educated Eyes.

However, the general public has a disease. And, this disease is not getting "properly" educated and not seeing this bull-**** and allowing it to stink up their mind.

Some don't get physicals when they should. Some don't combine these physicals with a more thorough examination to eliminate any biological or hormonal complications.

Additionally, some don't take the time to thoroughly educate their selves in what they plan to participate in, and in the process don't self examine their selves through the view of education of their own body.

Throughout the day, the body juggles a "balancing act" according to its design. If this is "disrupted" or "abnormal" in some biological or hormonal fashion, then one "should" seek medical assistance if the body is proving to be inefficient in its traditional processes. Its simply a medical necessity.

Otherwise, all one needs is: Proper food, proper activity, water, and a properly connected and educated mind and body.

One should understand the "concepts" of energy balance; think of your body as a vehicle that operates 24 hours a day and 7 days per week. It never stops burning gas ()--that is calories.

You would never expect your car to get you from one place to the next without systematic refueling, just as you know there's no point in putting more gas in the tank than it's designed to hold. The hand/mind coordination is in control on whether one over fills the fuel tank, as the vehicle has no mind what so-ever.

The body is no different: Get over it.

If you over fill your vehicle's gas tank, it spills over on the concrete and gets on your exterior paint (fat storage/some muscle repair and rebuild, and other energy expensive operations).

Once its full (glucose storage/excess calories), how this fuel is processed (and thus the mileage you obtain) will depend on the health and efficiency of the engine the vehicle is "powered" from and the other mechanical (biological) parts that are involved in the process of movement and motion.

The younger it is (or closer to new) the more it seems to "tolerate"; the more it advanced in age (and mileage it obtains) it tends to lose some power and efficiency (but it can be effectively dealt with).

Though out this process, the most important issue is: "Educated Maintenance".

"Proper" maintenance of your personal vehicle.

Like vehicles, some bodies can tolerate lack of maintenance or improper maintenance for long periods, while with others it cannot be tolerated. And, if you depend on this vehicle to get you to school/work, lack of maintenance or improper maintenance is going to catch up with you one day. And, if you "depend on your body's health to carry you through life" improper maintenance or lack of maintenance will likewise catch up with you.

The difference?

You can always get another vehicle. You only have one body to carry you through life; it is a one shot arrangement.

You muck it up, you just might not be able to fix it.

A lifestyle change, physical activity, correct and proper education, and calorie/macro nutrient manipulation are your thermogenic (or fat burner if you will).

The human body is designed to eat and perform physical activity; I think this is a rather safe and obvious fact.

How one manipulates these base facts, how one manipulates "choice" within their personal operating environment (life style), and react to the corresponding body reaction and adaption, will determine the quality of the results.


Let me give you "one example among many":

What is it about "strength training" that can create an "after burn or energy flux", if you will?

The most important factor is muscle repair/rebuild. A quality hour of throwing the iron around causes your muscle tissues to break down at a higher rate than normal. I say a higher rate than normal because the body is always repairing and rebuilding, however, progressive weight training taxes the system above the "norm".

The act of "progressive strength training" forces the body to perform biological processes "above homeostasis", and this can be a very biologically expensive process.

You have a "biological and energy expensive" process going on within the muscles (and some organ function) themselves just through muscle repair/rebuild. Protein/amino acid turn over can be energy expensive, and this occurs long after you have finished your workout. This muscle repair process effects the rest of the bodily system because other parts of the body have to be involved to complete the process.

If one does NOT workout (say at all), this process above norm isn't taking place, which means less energy (calories) and nutrition are being expended and/or used, logically.

In this EXAMPLE you have two stimulants impacting thermodynamics : 1. The hour of strength training, and 2. The biologically expensive muscle rebuilding/repair.

When one first begins a "program" this process (1 and 2) can be quite expensive to the body. Extraordinary gains/losses can happen---until the body "adapts and becomes more efficient"--to your external activities and feeding habits. Then it becomes less expensive as compared to the past, and its just a matter of time before the fitness person sees this materialize in one form or another on the outside.

But the logistics and items used to AGAIN gain a Thermogenics advantage are the same. Since a lifestyle change has already occurred, you "may not" need to change specific items here; however, what may need changed are approaches on:

1. Amount of calories (how one is manipulating them, and using "types of food to your advantage"), 2. Possible manipulation of Macro-nutrients, 3. A decrease/increase in intensity/progression and type and timing of fitness activities (weight training and/or cardio), 4. And, making some hard and "sometimes difficult" choices supported by being educated in items 1 through 3, dependent on the fitness goal position (like trying to remove the last bit of lower ab fat, that I term the body's preventive starvation fat, and is one reason it "can be difficult to remove".

The Thermogenic is being educated in items 1 through 4.

It is not in a pill. You walk in your Fat Burner Pill: Your Body.

Do not be foolish and look to an over-the-counter fat loss pill.

Look to yourself…….and education for the absolute win.

This is all you will ever need.

Some seem to think obsession is a disease for the bad. I disagree. Look around to the successful Olympians, Body Builders, professional cyclists, and successful fitness individuals. They are all obsessed with dedication to be successful in their chosen path. The weak choose it as a disease and simply can't handle it.

Get.......er' done.



Now, start ROCKEN-OUT…….with education.

Best wishes

That info I was talking about:

The Anterior Singulate Cortex, a part of our brain, can be made use off, by us , to get our cravings under control (apparently); all we have to do is to imagine eating a food for around 90 seconds and the craving will subside...it makes the food in question less appealing.

But don't ask me how

Random Thoughts on the thread topic:


Lets face it folks: If you deficit diet your body is going to "yell at you": it just doesn't like using "itself for dinner", and likewise, if you overeat the body will "yell at you" by adding energy stores because it has "no current use for itself".

You must be the "Master of both disasters".

Like in life, the same is true for dieting: You MUST "Master yourself" to be successful.

One MUST "have consciously aided intellect when dealing with the biological and mental cravings to EARN your goal".

No one knows yourself, better than YOU. Learn to master them, as they are apart of you; this is the KEY to your success.

If you "whine" and give in on a consistent basis, it is a sure bet, your body is going to "whine" right back at you and give you a result that is consistent with your "whining".

To be your goal, you must think and act according to your goal on a consistent and on-going basis, and likewise, your body will be consistent in rewarding the same.

You must "Master yourself" to reveal your inner and outer true power.

Let me throw in a comparison of sorts: During the concentration camps during WWll, the Nazis gave the jews starvation levels of calories, and over time they became mere bones at these levels (and environmental factors).

What is the difference between YOU and the persons in the camps? Why is it more of a different type of difficulty? They had "No Choice", and you "have a choice", and there in itself is the main issue to become "master of".

If given no choice, it can be done. And, you must apply the same type of demand and become the "Master of choice".

Great info.

My love of PB is extremely high as well. I've adapted by using a lower carb/higher fat diet. It works for me, but my wife doesn't like it.

Fortunately we are dealing with good fats here. The unfortunate issue its calorie dense. I can sometimes mix NPB with Chocolate whey powder and banana/frozen yogurt, create an awesome smoothie. Also tend to eat more of it, when working with a glucose depletion diet, and this assists with psychological/physiological complantency.

We all deal with the side effects of ourselves as we live this life, making a choice of laboring under the bar, and dealing with certain dietary goals. This thread is for dealing with these side effects, and brain storming ideas to combat them, and dealing out good old fashion blunt truth in the matter.

Anyone feel free to post comments, problems, answers, etc. Even if this helps one fellow Maber, its worth the effort.


Peace.

While we pursue ourselves:

"THE REAL ANABOLIC/CATABOLIC 7"

(by Chillen)

Price Tag: PRICELESS.

1. Proper Education to Support Fitness Goals

A. Study applications of various dieting techniques.
B. Study application of various resistance training techniques, methods, and programs
C. Study methods to overcome weaknesses and improve strengths.
On the mental side
On the Physical side (how to prevent injury, work with injuries, and weak points, etc)

2. Proper Personalized Diet

A. Develop a Diet Journal (until you don’t need it anymore)
B. Carefully (and reasonably) watch your body's adaption process
C. Adapt to this Personal Feedback and Personal History--education based
D. Learn how to manipulate the calorie and macro nutrients
E. Understand "your glucose stores" and how it works
F. Understand the importance of when to increase blood sugar and when not to (especially having a dieting lifestyle to lose quality tissue).
G. Pre/Post workout meals
H. Food Cravings: Master them with FOOD, and proactive involvement, and with education within (A through G).

3. Proper Weight Training/Fitness Routine

A. Develop a Weight Training Journal
B. "Aggressively assaulting" progression at every affordable and reasonable opportunity given on-the-fly IN the gym, and preparing for it OUT of the gym.
C. Carefully (and reasonably) watch your body's adaption process
D. Adapt to this Personal Feedback and Personal History--education based
E. Proper form and execution of exercises.

4. Proper Rest/Recuperation

A. Diet gives the biological base for growth and/or decrease in body fat. Weight training is the stimulation to give the opportunity for the biological base to function in a biologically expensive process, and this rebuilding and growth occurs at rest OUT of the gym.

5. Learn and Adapt from Mistakes Made from applying educated principles within your diet and weight training. Use your mind to create a remarkable and unparalleled ability to realize and use mental resourcefulness to master all personal difficulties to create personal opportunities to improve. Implement. Make a mistake? Adapt and overcome.

6. Master yourself. Master your life. Prioritize your fitness goals and create lifestyle habits.....that points to your fitness goals.


7. Motivation. Learn what motivates you to perform items 1 through 6.
