While Muscle & Fitness has lost a lot of readers over the years, and rightfully so, they still rank among the top 15 “fitness” websites in the world. One of their featured “nutrition” articles aimed at fat loss is called “10 things you need to know when starting a new diet plan,” written by Emmie Satrazemis. As most brainwashed nutritionists, dieticians, personal trainers, and coaches, the staff at Muscle & Fitness, including Emmie, are […]
I started fasting early afternoon on December 29, and on December 30, I cut out all fluids and entered my dry fast phase where I still had contact with water, but nothing passed my lips. This morning, after my dog walk (3.50 to 4.45 a.m.,) I had some water and electrolytes, and as I write this, within the hour, I’m about to break my fast with some egg yolks mixed in heavy cream and
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.

So, yesterday evening I had a whey protein drink with raw milk and heavy cream followed by steak and eggs.This morning, all I had was a pre-workout with 20 grams of slow-acting carbohydrates and 20 grams of essential amino acids. The photo was taken about 30 minutes after the
I had trouble falling asleep yesterday since I was very “wired”, but when I did, I slept pretty good for a total of about 6 hours (usually aim for 7.5 hours). My resting heart rate is down another 2 bpm, and a total of 7 bpm since the first day of the fast. My body weight is down to 70.5 kg, a drop of 0.5 kg since yesterday, and a total of 4.6 kg
