Stubborn Body Fat

Yesterday, the T-Nation staff published an anonymous article about “stubborn body fat” due to what they call “insulin insensitivity.” And as usual with these bro-science and pseudo-science-based fitness-websites, they almost got a few things right — but as always, they got most of it wrong. Let’s see what they had to say on this subject. They introduce their “article of solutions” by explaining that it is easy for a guy to go from 25% […]

Biohacking is Complete Bullshit

Inspired by a post at our community forums over at, about the hydrogen water gimmick, I decided to make a short article about this nonsense called ‘biohacking.’ And be prepared, I will not pull any punches today as a bloody nose might be what is needed to wake some people up from their indoctrination and reversed ‘logic.’ To make it easy, I will define ‘biohacking,’ also known as ‘DIY biology,’ as a futile

No, Never Eat at Night

As the year comes to an end, we return to T-Nation and a short article by diet- and protein-obsessed Chris Shugart. This time it’s about late-night eating, and although he understands that it’s a bad thing, he still misses the big picture and presents some very bad advice. He begins his article with quite a cliché, citing: “An old expression goes like this: “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner

Do This Instead – Meat and Eggs

As Saturnalia, or “Christmas,” approaches with people finding excuses to shovel toxic life-shortening fat-building crap down their pieholes, Chris Shugart of T-Nation is back with a “One Protein Shake a Day for Muscle” bulking-up article for boys and gals who want to be swole without looking like fat pigs. Always with the f**king artificial man-made crappy protein powders and shakes. Jeez. Shugart begins his article with advocating for a “smarter” bulk approach with gaining

Intermittent Fasting – Quick Guide and FAQ

The pharmaceutical shill-website Healthline just posted a “beginners guide” to Intermittent Fasting, and it’s not too bad considering their previous abysmal and mostly pseudo-scientific nonsensical content. So, lets break it down. First off, Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. This could be, for example, a daily ‘feeding window’ of 6 to 8 hours, leaving 16 to 18 hours a day for a ‘fasted state,’ (the

Review: The 90/90 Fasting Diet

Back in the 90’s, circa 1997, when I ran Ironmag; the first real online magazine of its kind, we featured the Animal Diet, one of the first real ‘intermittent fasting’ diets for bodybuilders and gymrats. It was tailored for fat loss and simply consisted of a pre-workout snack and a post-workout ketogenic-style meal. That was it, and it still was better than most other ‘intermittent fasting’ diets that followed 10 or even 20 years

Man From Antioquia, May Hold Clue to Alzheimer’s Prevention, Media Suggests on May 16 – And a Bit of Real Science

The story goes like this. A man who seemed fated to develop memory loss in his 40s or 50s, based on family history, kept normal function for decades longer than he should have. He seems to have been protected by a rare gene change that enhanced the function of a protein that helps nerve cells communicate. The man is part of a large family in Antioquia, Colombia, with many members who have inherited a
