Helpful article, however, I will have to disagree with your comment about sprinting. Sprinting is a maximal effort exercise which constitutes the body’s reliance on predominantly carbohydrates and not fat. The fast catabolism of carbohydrates causes the lactic acid build up. The maximal exercise will actually not burn any fat but will boost testosterone levels. Also, the exercise can produce increased muscle mass, which can increase resting energy expenditure. Since your body burns predominantly fat at rest this can indirectly help you lose fat weight. If a person wants to become more efficient in metabolizing fat and lactic acid, they should focus on long duration (greater than 30 minutes) and low to moderate intensity exercises (~20-60% MHR)
Hey Ali, what did you do during the period where you were 17-18 to optimize your hormone production? I’m seventeen and I feel like a late bloomer. I’m pretty thin, at 138 lbs, I’m a 5’8 African American, and my shoulders are about 41 inches around. I want to optimize my hormones in order to hit the maximum height for my genetic potential, grower bigger everywhere, develop a more masculine face ( chisleled jawline, wide jaw, course features, etc). Do you have your personal journal in the form of an article anywhere on the site (Kind of new to the site)? Also, I start a strength program. I’m lifting with my schools football team for 30 mins before soccer practice, but soon I will have a gym membership and do starting strength or Greyskull LP.
I created this diet to help as many guys as I possibly can. I want to change the way we think about nutrition, so we can start, once again, being optimal men. So you can experience the benefits of eating how a man should, like I have, and so many of my clients have. If you don’t like the diet, you have 60 days – no questions asked – to get a refund. I don’t want you to spend your hard earned money on something that you’re not going to use or follow. This is the best diet for men who want to burn fat, build muscle, and build their ideal bodies. But if you lack the discipline to follow it, fire me an email and I’ll give you a full refund.
