    The Terms


    Wondering what everyone is talking about? Here's some answers:

    Please post any others that you think need to be added.

    PWO = post work-out

    ecto = ectomorph (a body type)
    meso = mesomorph
    endo = endomorph

    RMR = Resting Metabolic Rate

    BMR = Basal Metabolic Rate

    LBM = Lean Body Mass

    EPOC - excess postexercise oxygen consumption

    P/C/F = Protein / Carbohidrates / Fat

    40/50/10 = these random numbers mean the same thing as P/C/F but not always in that order

    Carbs = Carbohidrates

    2g/lb = 2 grams per pound

    Macros = Macronutrient Ratio

    GI = Glycemic Index (High = carbs released into blood stream quickly. Low = carbs released into blood stream slowly)

    CHO = carbohydrate

    GH = growth hormone

    --------------
    Measurements
    --------------

    1g protein = 4 calories
    1g carbs = 4 calories
    1g fat = 9 calories

    8 ounces = 1 cup
    12 ounces = 1 pound
    16 tablespoons = 1 cup
    1 gallon = 16 cups

    Calculator for Converting Almost Anything

    Nutrition Journal = Nutrition Data & Fit Day
