Saturday, June 18. Day 7 – MCT-“fasting”:

Weighted in at 71.1 kg (156.4 lbs) today, another 200 grams (0.44 lbs) less than yesterday. The decline in body weight seems rather constant at the moment, but I expect a larger drop by tomorrow.
Since I’ve been training four days in a row, I have a MCT-“fast” with no protein today, and the fact that I have so much else going on I my life for the moment, I decided to take the day off from the gym.

I had one cup of coffee in the morning and one in the forenoon. Only 5 g of MCT oil in each cup. Also took a longer morning walk with my wolfdog, and at 1 PM we took a 4 km (2.5 miles) bike ride to meet up with some friends […]

Wednesday, June 15. Day 4 – ketogenic diet:

This night I woke up a couple of times around 1 AM to 3 AM and I only got about an hour of deep sleep. I did however wake up at 5:05 AM full of energy and I’m not the least tired.
My morning body weight was down 0.8 kg (1.8 lbs) since last morning. I’ve lost some additional subcutaneous water and my glycogen stores are now pretty depleted. I’m currently at 71.8 kg (158 lbs), so my body weight is down by 1.7 kg (3.74 lbs) since the start this past Sunday. Please note that my morning weight on Saturday, when I took my before photo was 72.8 kg, but my morning weight on Sunday when I started the diet was 73.5 kg (162 lbs.) During the last week before the diet experiment, my […]

Sunday, June 12. Day 1 – fat “fasting”:

The Diet Experiment The “before photo” from Saturday morning.

Woke up at 5:10 AM and, as I always do, had a full glass of water with a teaspoon of sea salt and a half teaspoon of bicarbonate. 20 minutes later I had my first cup of coffee with 5 grams of MCT oil. I had a total of 5 of these during the day until 5 PM. I added about 5 grams of butter to the last cup. At 7 PM and 9 PM I had 5 grams of hamp oil, 5 grams of coconut oil, and 3 grams of omega-3.
No solid foods at all this day. No protein and no carbs.

Starting weight this Sunday morning was 73.5 kg (162 lbs.), a slight increase from yesterday’s weigh-in […]

The Quick Diet Experiment

14 days to lower inflammation, increase health and get ripped again

 

This is a newly tailored Quick Diet Experiment to lower inflammation, increase health markers and to lose some fat and subcutaneous water. All main principles are based on things I’ve done with my clients for the last 10 years – with some newly added stuff. The full 14-day journey with daily journal entries will be available for subscribers at my Classic Muscle Newsletter. Simpler summaries will be posted here at bartoll.se.

Quick introduction

On May 10, I finally made a comeback at the gym. I had a quick re-visit in September and October last year, but I haven’t really been hitting the weights since 2013, so this comeback is very much needed.
It’s now been 30 days and I’ve regained about 8.5 kg (18.7 lbs). I’m still about 5 kg (11 lbs) shy of the muscle mass I had during 2008 and 2009 when I reached my lowest body fat level ever (pretty much a pound or two short of competition ready). In 2009, my body weight was about 74 to 75 kg (163 to 165 lbs) and my subcutaneous body fat percentage (Parrillos’ 9-site caliper measurement) was at about 3.2 to 3.4 percent (during March to July; but it never got above 4 % until mid 2009.)
As of June 10 (2016) at the start of this experiment, my bodyweight […]

The Powerhouse of Cells – The Mitochondria

jb_summer-2011A new free article is up at my Classic Muscle Newsletter: The Powerhouse of Cells. Learn about optimizing mitochondrial function and why it is extremely important for health and disease prevention.
Mitochondria are tiny double membrane organelles that produce ATP (the energy currency of the cell), through respiration, and to regulate cellular metabolism. Red blood cells and skin cells have very little to none, while germ cells have 100,000, but most cells have one to 2,000 mitochondria in them. They’re the primary source of energy production for your body. Since mitochondrial function is at the very heart of everything that occurs in your body, optimizing mitochondrial function is extremely important for health and disease prevention.
