A Quick Look at the Fitness & Bodybuilding Pseudo/Bro-Science, Week 47

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 …

Dry Fasting – The Best way to Fast? Part 1 of 2

We’ve been told by the lying establishment and the Rockefeller pseudoscience of ‘modern medicine’ that fasting is starvation and therefore bad. Of course, anyone who have looked into it know that fasting is the best and quickest way to detoxify and heal pretty much anything, and most importantly, a way to extend your lifespan. However, among those who know this, we still have people telling us that ‘dry fasting’ is bad and dangerous. This …

Know Your Poison: Phytic Acid

In this part of covering all the toxic plant chemicals, we will look at phytic acid; one of the few antinutrients that at least some people actually know exists. While it fades in comparison with some other plant defense toxins, it’s still a very serious and dangerous one. As with all antinutrients, they are simply chemicals that bind to nutrients that the plant, or seed, need in order to grow. Phytic acid is no …

Meat and animal foods. It’s not only about protein, ya know…

I’ve spent most of my career within the ‘fitness industry’ and the ‘medical field’ as a nutritionist, writer, author, coach, personal trainer, and speaker. Although most of the people I’ve coached have been competing bodybuilders and fitness athletes, I’ve also worked with top athletes from most sports, as well as people just interested in improving their body composition or health. I’ve been around countless other coaches and ‘personal trainers’, and as you can imagine, …

Food labels are mostly nonsense, what matters is what you actually absorb.

After a chemical analysis and on paper, most vegetables, nuts, seeds and fruits look like they contain some vitamins, minerals and even protein. Unfortunately for us, we do not have the complex digestion and fermentation chambers of herbivores. While vitamins and minerals are in chemical form, which cannot be absorbed by humans and need to be converted, other problems also arise, such as antinutrients, fiber, and poisonous plant defense chemicals. The bioavailability and bioconversion …

10 Diet/Nutrition Myths That Must Die In 2020

Plants cannot run away from predators. Therefore, they have developed several sinister defense mechanisms to prevent them from being eaten. These include toxins that are highly poisonous in larger quantities, antinutrients that block nutrients from being absorbed and can cause cellular damage, and phytoestrogens that will make the predator infertile. As for vitamins and minerals, none of these are in bioavailable form and must be converted in our bodies. The bioconversion rate is between …

The Vegetarian/Vegan Protein Problem: The Dangers of Soy Products such as Tofu Written by Joachim Bartoll, September 2016Classic Muscle Newsletter, October 2016 (issue #25) In my Ketogenic article series, I touched on the “protein problem” with vegetarian or vegan versions of the ketogenic diet.

Low Protein Days: Fight protein habituation, improve cell health and performance

Low Protein Days Fight protein habituation, improve cell health and performance Written by Joachim Bartoll, April 17, 2016Classic Muscle Newsletter #19, 2016 In my second book, ‘The Maximum Muscle Guide,’ published in mid-2009, I wrote a chapter on protein cycling. The main reason for including “low protein days” (less than 50 g protein during 24 hours), was to avoid protein habituation. At the time of writing the book, I had used the concept of …

Healing tendon injuries with nutrition Written by Joachim Bartoll, January 2016Classic Muscle Newsletter, March 2016 (issue #18) Tendon injuries can be one of the worst hurdles for anyone who regularly participates in exercise or sports. They heal slowly and can seem to last forever, and the current therapies to treat them don’t seem to be very effective. While minor muscle injuries are more common than tendon injuries, such as strains or sprains, they often …
