A Quick Look at the Fitness & Bodybuilding Pseudo/Bro-Science, Week 38, 2022, Part II

As the first article in this new series was well-received and actually wildly shared in forums and on social media, I decided on a quick follow-up while I have the time and energy. And in the future, I will most likely do one or two of these a week. If you enjoy these free articles, consider sponsoring my work by donating at the ‘buy me a coffee’ platform, or sign up for our uncensored community ‘Ungovernable.se’ where both I and many other knowledgeable members post and discuss daily.

If you’re new to me and my website, I worked daily in the Fitness-, Bodybuilding-, Gym-, and Competitive Sports industry for almost 22-years with nutrition, supplementation, and training — and was involved in it for a total of more than 26 years. Most of that time, I too was trapped in the pseudo-science of “nutrition science” and was fooled by the synthetic toxic crap of the pharmaceutical and supplement industry. My outlook and understanding took a sharp turn as I became severely ill in late 2017 with several tumors, liver and kidney damage and my thyroid shutting down. In a last effort I turned it around in a matter of a few weeks by adopting our natural species appropriate diet of the raw flesh and fat of animals and by following up with regular water-fasting combined with days of dry fasting. You can read more about that here:

My Journey – Why I do what I do…

For this second part, we will look at the most recent articles about nutrition at the Bodybuilding website and magazine known as Ironman.

Burn More Calories With These 3 Types Of Workouts

I’m not sure why this article is listed in their ‘nutrition’ archive. Perhaps their writers are as confused about ‘topics’ as they are about actual truthful information. Or maybe it’s because of the very flawed concept of “calories” as suggested in the headline. Calories are simply a unit of heat-energy from burning something and increasing the temperature of a given mass of water by 1 °C. That has absolutely nothing to do with exercise.

TDEE, Your Total Daily Energy Expenditure Explained

And no, you do not “burn fat” when you exercise, there is no “burning” taking place. You simply use oxygen and different forms of energy in metabolic processes. And if we claim to be “scientific” and “accurate,” the correct wording actually matters. Perhaps a better headline would be, “Spend More Energy with These 3 Types of Workouts.” But even with correct wording, the concept is still idiotic at best and simply a sell pitch for all the useless exercise machines you find at your nearest gym or “fitness studio.”

The truth is that excessive exercise will break you down and age you quicker, the same way as eating too much or too frequently does. If you have put yourself in such a position that you need to get rid of some excessive body fat, doing it by adding more exercise or changing your way of exercise is extremely ineffective and a big waste of time. Time is limited and should be spent on better things than hours of exercise that actually spend very little energy. All you need in form of exercise is some weight lifting or calisthenic sessions a couple of times a week to keep your muscle mass and your strength up. That is it! Lowering your body fat levels comes down to what you put into your mouth. By adopting our species appropriate diet of consuming only animals and the produce of animals will guarantee that you get all the nutrients your body needs, and thus that it will function optimally and as intended. Many times, that is all it takes to reach your ideal weight and body fat level. If you’re in a rush, or if you have a lot of fat to get rid of, the second-best way is to adopt this diet and then do some strategic fasting. You can read more about that here:

Which Nutrients Are Best For Your Health?

The featured picture for this article actually shows very few foods that qualify for being nutrient dense. Although better than anything plant-based, a chicken breasts might be the worst meat you can pick. They do have eggs though, but hard boiled which destroy a lot of vitamins within the yolk. The egg yolk should always be consumed raw. The white you can cook if you actually need the protein, or just throw it away. Usually, clueless and retarded bodybuilders do just the opposite. Go figure.
Then you have a glass of milk, which is perfectly fine if it would be untouched raw milk directly from the cow. Any kind of pasteurized and/or homogenized milk is unfortunately pure poison, especially as they add fake synthesized vitamins that are extremely toxic.
The cheese is good though, if it is aged and not from pasteurized crap. It’s a good source of natural vitamin K2 (MK4) and vitamin A.

In the article they start with “carbohydrates,” which is a big ‘fail’ right of the bat. Carbohydrates is NOT a required nutrient. It’s actually toxic and very bad for us. It’s an emergency source of energy in case of famine and starvation. We as humans are not supposed to consume foods with carbohydrate daily, not unless you want to shorten your life-span and life-quality by half – and that would obviously be retarded…

I’ve covered carbohydrates here:

Carbohydrates are NOT our body’s preferred fuel

Then they go on to fats. And the total nitwits claim that saturated fats are unhealthy and then mention unsaturated fats and that they lower cholesterol. Are they living in the 80’s? Are they totally retarded? Unsaturated fats have no place in the human diet. I dare you to find one valid scientific study that claim otherwise. And as for cholesterol, that is something our body regulates perfectly on its own. Actually, low cholesterol is a big concern and extremely unhealthy. All our cells are made from cholesterol, and so are a lot of our hormones.

I’ve covered cholesterol here:

Cholesterol is Essential to Life
LMHR Hypothesis by Dave Feldman and The Real Science on Cholesterol

The only fat you need is the fat from animals, the same fats we are made of, and that is saturated fats and omega-3 fats. All available in red meat, or any kind of fatty meat in more than sufficient amounts. If needed, add some fatty fish such as mackerel, sardines, or salmon now and then for some extra omega-3 and you’re golden.

As for “vegetable” (seed) oils and unsaturated fats, I covered that here:

Vegetable Oils – most toxic food additive?

The last macronutrient they mention is protein, which is the only thing they got somewhat right. Well, it’s a “bodybuilding and Fitness” magazine after all, and they tend to obsess over protein. If you follow our species appropriate diet, you will never have to worry about protein, ever. You will get more than enough. And if you are a big bodybuilder or strength athlete as in a weigh lifter, powerlifter, or strongman, you can supplement with a whey protein powder. It’s still animal-based and a whey concentrate also contains a lot of useful and bioavailable minerals.

Then they finish off with micronutrients. And keep in mind that you can only find bioavailable vitamins in animal-based foods. They do not exist in a bioavailable form in plants, and those few that do exist in a chemical form need to be converted within our bodies, a very costly process which yields a very tiny outcome. That is why vegans become nutrient deficient and malnourished within months of adopting their idiotic self-harming starvation diet.
As for vitamin supplements, they are even worse. Synthetic imitations of what they believe is the actual vitamin. Extremely toxic. Avoid them at all costs.

If you are concerned about micronutrients, simply make sure you get some organ meat every week or other week, that is plenty. As for muscle meat and fat, they contain all you need in sufficient amounts provided you eat enough, which is roughly 1.75g of each per kilo lean mass day. I.e., as little as 122 grams of red meat and 122 grams of animal fat a day for a person weighing 80 kg with a lean body mass of 70 kg.

Is Your Favorite Gym Beverage Harming Your Health?

This article covers energy drinks and sport drinks. And yes, all of them will damage your health. That should be a no-brainer. They are full of chemicals. Even those with electrolytes use cheap versions of the salts and minerals that our body will have a hard time breaking down (it’s like rocks,) causing them to get stuck in tissues.

I covered some of the problems with energy drinks and sport drinks here:

People are Stressed and Exhausted as They Focus on Energy Drinks and ‘Calories’ Instead of Nutritional Density

If you need to hydrate, use plain water and perhaps a pinch of sea salt. That is all it takes. And as I have covered before, we only need to drink extra water if we sweat a lot or if we cook our food, draining it of fluids and minerals, as in electrolytes. I covered that in the first part of this series.

That’s enough for this part. See you again next week!
