Post your favorite bro science comments, questions or beliefs.

I just read this comment on a thread this morning. Sneezing Stardust brought it up yesterday:

"Do Omega 3's turn to Omega 6's when heated?"

A guy at the gym keeps telling me I need to eat only eggs post workout if I want to make gains.

Not sure if this can even be classified as bro science...it's just straight-up stupidity:

"A calorie is a measure of energy. Heat = energy. Therefore, by putting your foods in the fridge for an amount of time before eating them, you are lessening the caloric value, which is a great option for dieters."

Those are good ones.... not sure if this is BroScience, or BS...but what about your body can only handle a certain % of your weight in grams of protein at one time?...

The only thing I've heard concerning something like this is to drink water ice cold. That way, the body must use "heat/energy" to warm up the water, therefore you can burn more calories drinking ice water.. I wonder how many super fatts just drink ice water and think they are making a big difference..

Some of my favorite bro science comes from the health community, such as...

Eating cholesterol raises your cholesterol.

Oh man, I used to work with a guy who lived on cholesterol health. He didn't care about macros or nutrition stuff, just cholesterol. It was so funny...he really thought that by eating as many eggs as I do I was asking for trouble... He once told me eating 1 egg, can raise my cholesterol levels 5-10 points..

I tell these types of people that the body produces 3 to 4 times more cholesterol then they can eat. I next tell them to cut out junk carbs if they want to lower cholesterol.

They will clutch tightly their Oreos, but willingly give up eggs. Bro sciene Jedi Masters, they are.

I've heard the cholesterol one. It's like the whole "don't eat whole eggs" mantra. So stupid.

I love this one:

"Drinking too much water makes you RETAIN water."

hahaha..that's a classic. The only thing drinking too much water can do is kill you...and that's if you drink multiple gallons, refuse to pee and have an internal breach causing mass toxicity. Yeah, sounds crazy..but it happened. Some lady was in a contest to "Hold your wee, for a Wii"...She came in 2nd, then died.

I used to believe that the body created new fat cells and never lost them.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/05/he...rch/05fat.html

Quote:
The result is that the total number of fat cells in the body remains the same, year after year throughout adulthood. Losing or gaining weight affects only the amount of fat stored in the cells, not the number of cells.
It seems the body does replace 10% of the cells each year, and creates new ones to replace them. But it doesn't add "new" new cells.

The body is such an amazing machine. The code and chemicals required for the body to know and do this astounds me.
