I don't see the point of you having to write that first bit about the loss of sodium because that's what I was saying the whole time. In my first post, I was concentrating on the importance of sodium in athletes, and of course, glucose, the insulin generator.
Actually, there is a point, you only posted the importance, I think I posted what was needed, the loss and why and how you replenish the loss of sodium, while you only posted the importance, if your going to give advice about nutrition then do it properly because he’s asking for advice, not a theory based on opinion and then mumbo jumbo on singling out little ingredients to foods to prove your theory.
Well, I do agree with what you have to say in the second bit about the practices of athletes, but really, you can't deny that athletes (in all sports, even the big names) are known to drink and party every now and then, which indicates a bad habit, but they work it off right after and only use the drinking and partying as a mental boost for themselves in order to be ready and prepared (hopefully prepared) for training and what's ahead. I haven't heard of hypoglycemia, so I can't comment on that, but from the books I've read, they say in the first 4 hours after exercise glucose is very important in possibly a meal or a large amount for stimulating the insulin response, for optimal recovery. That's what all sport-related scientists are pondering about these days: how to be able to perform optimally.
Those athletes are professional elite level athletes not to mention, most of them are of age to drink, that’s the difference between you and them, they are pro and you’re still a kid, still trying to train to become pro... I’m pretty sure while they were training for trials and such they worked really hard, probably don’t or didn’t go near a morsel of junk food or alcohol for the matter. On that note, since they are elite athletes, they have trainers and nutrionists at their expense also they have remedies for their injuries and hangovers, while you don’t, so why not open up those ears and eyes of yours and learn more, knowledge is power, the more you know, the better it is.
I think you have to prove to me that build and metabolism and personal health doesn't make a difference in the way different foods affects our growth/health. From what I know, because the way the human body is designed (in different individuals I mean), the digestive system is designed to digest food in the best possible manner and to get the most out of it (nutrients), while turning the remainder into waste and sending it to be excreted. Because all humans are different, the ability to absorb nutrients, and sometimes a specific nutrient, can vary upon individual. Food takes about 35 hours to fully digest, but it is proven that it varies between people, thus supporting my argument. However, they have not yet found a way to test whether or not a food is fully consumed before it is digested, or if the nutrients are drawn out fully from a food.
I think you already know that, build and metabolism and personal health do affect and make a difference but it doesn’t make any excuse for an athlete to eat crappy, just stop making excuses, for god sake..Of course ones metabolism increases the way it processes rates of different kinds of food and yes body types/builds do make a huge difference, like say someone with a more muscular body type can of course eat different foods that will make their bodies react differently .Its like Rome_ leader says, It’s like drinking and being huge, as opposed to drinking, and being 110 lbs! Major difference, this isn’t rocket science. The body has physiological mechanisms for lipolysis and lip genesis which are activated by hormones; hormones released as much by the quality and timing of what is eaten as by the quantity.What more important is that, anabolism and catabolism are as affected by the body's environment as much as they are by nutrient intake. Do glycogen stores need to be replenished? Is there cellular damage that needs to be repaired? Yes, and those are the only reason glycogen is used. As I stated how and why in the above posts.
Really, in the fast food chart, it really doesn't explain the separation between fats and sugars, what type of sugar it is (like in some sports drinks they have "commercial" ingredients, in order words useless ingredients), and the calories match that of a standard meal (1000-1200 calories). The amount of carbs it posts is also limited, so therefore your "spike" has a good chance of not even happening. Plus human tolerance also plays a factor as the human body learns to endure with each experience, so your "spike" can also decrease with time, to a point where the damage is too small/non-existant. Free-radicals, a term actually more used in prolonged muscle fatigue, is something I'm familiar with, so where exactly would the free radicals form? In the end, the stuff about blood pressure, tissues, and related vary from person to person, because of the way they intake foods.
First of all who would honestly, read a fast food chart, and why would explain the separation between fats and sugars, and what types of sugars it has, if it did the companies would run out of business, and no one would actually take advice from a McDonalds chart either especially if you’re an athlete. Yeah I agree with the sports drinks they are just as much mass marketed but a true athlete would know which drinks are more helpful then the other because they want an optimal performance, but the sports drinks are more helpful to your body then a big Mac meal and I think S4L and AFC said that it matters more where the calories are coming from than just eating up to add to ones calorie intake but what would help you more a big mac meal or a crappy sports drink that may help restore the fluids’ back into your body through exercise, really what part of a big mac can do that for you?.The amounts of carbs are not limited, and my “Spike” has a better chance of happening, then you bulking up on a fast-food included diet. So if “human tolerance play a factor as the human body learns to endure with experience” then your weakening your immune system by eating crap, its basically malnutrition and your body’s immune system and personal health will affect it ,such as iron and vitamin deficiency your saying that eating a big mac meal wont give you that? If you continue to have big macs and pop and all the other crap that you mention? Of course you will have side affects that includes your personal health really from your skin, to your body and I think I already explained a tiny bit of it already and maybe you need to see “supersize” me. It will all catch up in time, and may have other factors that affect your play also if the body is to tolerate and endure crappy foods, it will just weaken your immune system not strengthen it, another reason to not eat junk food really. Yeah my “Spike” will decrease in time, but it will cause damage, your body will be tired and fatigued so the damage is existent, and let me point that out, coning your body like that is really unnecessary as an athlete and let me point out, that I posted the reason why you would need a high glycogen levels in order to produce energy, and that it is mostly done during game prep time and that and its also done properly.
What they are: very reactive molecules which can seriously damage cell structure; they are the cause or one of the main causes of various disorders and diseases and also stimulate aging
How they form: Oxygen is important for the human being to survive, but it can become an enemy to the human body and of some specific structures in particular. Free radicals, very reactive substances which are harmful for our health can originate from oxygen, consequently free radicals are produced in much greater amounts in those who practice physical exercise and therefore consume more oxygen. Other factors can stimulate the production of these molecules which includes air pollution, smoking, ionizing radiation(including sun radiation),some drugs, FATS in foods, alcohol etc
And for the last bit, I'm saying potato chips are bad. I avoid them most of the time (I have a small 50g bag every 6 months or so). I know all the nutrients are gone after its gone through its processing. I don't see why you didn't understand what I was saying and had to go to all that trouble just to "prove me wrong", while I was adding something interesting for futbol26 to know.
Well firstly you said it was to support your argument, secondly it seemed that “adding something interesting for futbol26 to know” was to convey your message across, I mean are what was the point for that, do you cradle it? Do you need it? Does it help your bodily functions run smoothly? He wants to know if it eating out is bad or good, if it will help him with gaining his six pack, or if he can do this another way not “interesting facts” about tiny little things in food. Food is either good or bad, it can’t be both. It can be used for different things but it’s a yes or no topic
But like I said before, glucose is only useful because it stimulates the insulin response in the first 4 hours at a high rate, after that complex carbs are far more effective. If you're saying whole wheat digests slower, then the glucose isn't released in time and is useless. I'll read your guide when it’s posted.
Yeah,I know that, I said glycogen is used to restore muscle tissues, and carbohydrates that have been lost in exercise but that doesn’t make it okay to have white carbs and the other things you said on a regular basis, I just proved it, yeah I know whole wheat digests slower that’s why I posted this
* Low GI carbs prolong physical endurance
* High GI carbs help re-fuel carbohydrate stores after exercise
