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

As you probably know, 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 and why I do what I do

So, it comes at no surprise that I receive a lot of messages and questions about my former field of expertise. Since accepted “science” is nothing more than paid propaganda and lies, there is a big need for real information. So, in order to please some of you, I’ve decided to try out a new series of articles where I take a quick look at what these “Health & Fitness” websites are currently writing about.

Please read this before moving on:

Understanding Nutrition and Breaking Free from Ideology and Pseudoscience

For this week, we will look at the most recent articles about nutrition at the Bodybuilding website of Flex.

When It Comes to Carbohydrates, Consider Glycemic Index

Oh, please no. This totally useless index has been debunked so many times that it should have disappeared at least 20 years ago. Actually, I wrote an article about this, out of necessity, in 2019. You can find it here:

The Glycemic Index is absolute rubbish

And my conclusion from that article still stands.

The main question is… does it even matter? Even if you could get a ‘lower blood sugar response’ from focusing on certain ‘low glycemic carbohydrates,’ they all end up as sugar/glucose in the bloodstream anyway and that is, physiologically, the last thing you want to happen. Your body still has to do everything it can to rid itself of that excessive amount of glucose as it is very damaging to our arterial tissue and blood vessels. It doesn’t matter if carbohydrates are absorbed quickly and cause a high spike in blood sugar, or if they digest slowly and cause a prolonged medium curve. In the end, any carbohydrate-rich food has to be digested and every single gram will be turned into glucose nonetheless. And that also means that the body has to release pretty much the same amount of insulin to deal with that amount of carbohydrates, no matter if it is deemed ‘fast’ or ‘slow.’ And as far as insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes goes, either repeatedly high spikes of insulin or chronic elevated levels of insulin over time will have the same effect and outcome – especially if combined with vegetable oils. So, no matter what kind of carbohydrates you consume, they will contribute to this metabolic disease. And the more often you have them, the quicker you will arrive.

How To Avoid 4 of the Most Common Holiday Diet Destroyers

This article deals with stupid shit such as the lady at the office tempting you with cupcakes, waiting for the perfect time to join a gym, surviving Thanksgiving with bottles of booze, and meal planning for Christmas.

Well, if you understand that humans are meant to consume animal-based foods, such as the meat and fat of animals and their produce such as eggs, there should not be much confusion. That is our species appropriate diet that we thrive on, and once you follow it, you take a huge leap in your level of wellbeing and health. Most people are shocked once they realize the truth and eat correctly. Depending on your personality and how you feel when you incorporate toxic slave foods, doing it once in a while because of family or other “social obligations” is not a big deal. What you do during the rest of the year, the big picture, is what matters for your health, wellbeing and energy levels. There, I just saved you $250 or more in coaching fees.

Use Pumpkin to Lean Out or Bulk Up

For f**ck’s sake, no! Pumpkins are plan-based toxic crap. Anything that grows from plants are not meant as food for humans. While we do have the ability to extract some sugars as energy, and at times some minerals, from plants, it’s simply a means for survival when we cannot get enough of our species appropriate foods. It’s nothing you use for “leaning” out or for “bulking up.” It’s toxic! It’s a stressor on your body.

If you want to change something with your body, whether it be better health, lower body fat, or more muscle mass, you need to give it the nutrition it can use and limit everything else that causes stress and toxemia.

If you need to “bulk up,” as in gaining body weight and muscle mass, you need to get plenty of meat and fat. And if you’re very active or already somewhat muscular and have a high energy demand, you might use some carbohydrates at strategic times (as before and after a training session.) And if so, you should choose the least toxic sources, as I summarized in this article:

Weight Gain and Why Some Pack on the Pounds While Others Struggle

7 Best Carbs for Muscle Growth

Guess what you clueless writers of Flex Magazine… All carbohydrates break down to sugar, to glucose. And sugar, as in glucose, is extremely toxic for humans. That is why our body prioritize it as fuel and store it as fat, to get rid of it as quickly as possible, as high blood sugar destroys our arteries and would kill us if left unmanaged. However, that is not the only problem. All sources of carbohydrates contain deuterium in various concentration. Deuterium, or ‘heavy water’ binds to the energy process in our cell’s mitochondria, robbing us of energy while increasing oxidation. As less oxygen is drawn from the blood, energy levels are reduced and your redox potential decreases. A lowering of your redox potential means a huge increase in your risks of chronic diseases.

And to add injury to insult, we also have fiber, something that can really mess your gut up. So, if you really need a bit of carbohydrates now and then (which pretty much never would be the case, but I’ll humor you,) then you should choose the most processed version available that is void of fiber and has lost as much other toxins as possible. So, white parboiled/converted rice, white bread, honey, pasta and such. Or, some limited citrus fruits or wild berries.

8 Sodium Facts Bodybuilders Should Know

This is the regular “sodium can cause water retention and high blood pressure” yadda-yadda – and you need this and that amount if you’re training hard, and so on and so forth.
In real life, if you follow our species appropriate diet, as in being fully carnivore, the use of sodium is actually governed by your grade of cooking.

Ideally, you should be eating all meat and organ meats raw, including raw eggs and raw untouched milk. When you do this, the food already contain the perfect balance of sodium and other electrolytes. However, as soon as you start cooking, the first to escape with the meat juices are sodium and electrolytes.

So, yes, if you for some reason cook your food, you need to replace the sodium you lost with some sort of sea salt. That’s about it, really. Not more complicated than that.
And once your body is in tune, you can tell if you need salt or not by the taste and your desire to have it.

There, I saved you a few minutes and hopefully crushed some of the fake science that hurt people on a daily basis.
