Bodybuilding is 85% Nutrition

The High Fat Diet

It worked for me; I found a diet that SUSTAINED me. Sustained me with a minimum of food. I was in Positive Nitrogen balance and I needed an energy source that lasted longer than an hour and a half.

I needed a 6-hour energy source – which is fat. There are some experiments that I'm going to conduct on fats that are 100 years old. I guess you might say I'll spring it on the unsuspecting physique world.

Maybe I should consume a quart of lard everyday and then let someone take cholesterol and triglyceride tests, ha, ha.

The Soy Controversy

Get ready for an onslaught of advertising hype about soy products.

The government has given the green light to the soy folks to make claims related to heart disease and other health concerns.

Claims will include that it is designed to make you younger, save you from heart disease, solve all you female hormonal problems, lower your cholesterol and protect you against cancer.

The Dangers of Antacids

Don't ever take antacids, Prylosec (the purple pill), Pepcid AC, or Axid, as that would be a huge mistake!

The Optimum Muscle Growth Environment

Larry Scott Muscle Growth

Muscle growth is dependent on 2 things:

1. Utilization of Amino Acids by a muscle cell for cellular growth (bigger myofibrils).

2. Entry of Amino Acids (final breakdown product of protein into cell).

For this to occur the Amino Acids must be in the serum (blood) and they must have the mechanism to get into the cell.

Bile, Digestion, and Fatty Tumors

Vince GirondaWhen the ingestion of fats and proteins occurs there are mainly two substances that the body secretes to administer digestion.

One is hydrochloric acid, for the protein, and two is bile, for the fat.
