    Do you take fish oil? If so, stop

    and that's what it's all about
    isn't it strange, how something that seems odd or doubtful, or a wild turn of events that may seem depleted (or diminished, or even deleriously outrageous) -- can actually lead to personal growth and discovery?
    sure sometimes there is nothing to it - but that in itself is actually a learning experience

    always be balanced, healthy skepticism is tremendously valuable (as been mentioned)
    always question everything, not in the paranoid sense, just logically and thoroughly
    never believe everything you are told


    for my part, i learned that hey - maybe science (esp in regards to compositional factors) may not be so bad after all..maybe i like it
    (i still always carry healthy skepticism lol)
    and, my next realm of self-discovery in dietary discretion may just be tackling the total gluten-free barrier..
    signs point to this being absolutely conducive with other beliefs of mine, and further enhancing my quest for not only health but also my appearance

    dig it

    Take 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar 1-2x/day. You'll be fine in a week.

    This. I had horrible acid reflux, took ACV for roughly a week and havent had it since. Although i regularly take ACV now for the plethora of benefits it offers.

    You think there is ANY Difference betwen the caps and the real deal/liquid

    Also highly debated

    I haven't personally tried the tabs of them to compare them against the liquid, but I generally defer to the form found within nature, which is obviously liquid.

    Plus I imagine liquid is less $$

    Possibly the culprit can be low stomach acidity. Betaine hcl is worth a try IMO

    betaine very intriguing, lowers homocysteine levels which of course if elevated contribute to a host of health risks (cardiovascular etc)
    betaine could help digestive issues - also plays a role in methionine cycle (which has intrigued me for long time)
    good call

    and none of this has anything to do with your above apparent understanding of WHY milk adds weight to you

    protein itself -- IN ANY FORM be it liquid powder or otherwise -- is the LEAST conducive macronutrient with which to gain WEIGHT
    by far, not even close
    Can you elaborate on this(maybe you have already and I have not read it yet)? If you have, I will get to it sometime, when I have a chance to read all these pages.

    He's saying that the least likely pathway for protein is too add weight because of all the other roles in which protein has take precedent. Amino acids have a huge amount of varying roles including but not limited to transportation of molecules through the blood, form enzymes for digestive function and provide the building blocks for tissue repair. Because of the importance of its role, the body tries not to break it down for any purpose in which it is not needed.

    When protein needs are met, the body deaminates proteins (remving the amine group from the carboxyl group), and after conversion to urea, it is pee'd out as waste. The remainding Carbon group is then free to be used as energy (dependant on the amino acids) or stored.

    EDIT: its my interpreation of what Snag is saying

    Ok, I am following you, that clears up what I was confused about. Thanks for the reply.

    well, jiigzz gets technical about it, but sure
    to put make it simple, the basic TEF formula (thermic effect of food)
    looking at it another way, is hardest for body to digest, so makes body work harder
    to view it in numerical value:
    protein - @30% of every protein cal burned in digestion
    carbs - @6-8% of every cal burned in digestion
    fats - @2-3% of every cal burned in digestion

    while protein will help in muscle tissue repair and growth surely - the great value in bb'ing circles should not be looked at as protein = "gaining weight" but rather (in combination with lowering of other macros) viewed as protein helps you lose weight (or aids in body comp)

    digestive energy expenditure is (in my opinion) a most overlooked aspect in this realm, by nutritionists and diet "gurus" alike

    Betaine hcl =/= betaine anhydrous
    betaine anhydrous = TMG ( Trimethylglycine)
    Betaine hcl = betaine hydrochloride

    Betaine hcl can be used for low stomach acid. Worth a shot to try for your reflux.

    Betaine anhydrous is great stuff too but not the same. See - Betaine As An Ergogenic Aid for more on TMG

    ahhhhh, true
    (love some clarification, and always good to question)
    is why i simply stated "betaine" in my shortened abbreviated post (was going to bed), and did not specify the form in any of my statements

    good catch!

    betaine in general is a very interesting beast, and has many different components/uses
  29. Re: Protein Shake vs FOOD Source


    Just wanted to clear it up because betaine hcl taken at the dosage that TMG is recommended at will not be fun for someone.
