A Quick Look at Creatine

Creatine 101

 

What’s the deal with creatine? I hear so many misconceptions on this supplement, which is actually one of the most researched supplements in the sports nutrition world. Such as it’s a steroid, it doesn’t do anything, you will destroy your kidney’s if you take it (no study as ever showed increased kidney stress to the point of clinical relevance in a healthy kidney btw). Here’s a short little review on just the performance research on creatine, with a rarity in blog articles: references! (There’s a lot more research on other benefits out there).

Enjoy!

Of Glucose and Finger Pricks — Is Personalized Nutrition Possible?

Individualized Nutrition

With the publication of the latest book of our friend Robb Wolf: Wired to Eat”, the concept of individualized nutrition has quickly become a hot topic around fitness groups.

I sincerely think that personalized nutrition constitutes the binary that nutritional science should follow to instruct humans on which is the “best diet” for them and how to manage it.

The fact is that personalized nutrition, to be “personalized”, requires a much higher degree of quantification than most people are capable, or more so willing, to do.

In Wired to Eat, the reader learns about how a…

Why I Stopped Testing my Ketones on a Ketogenic Diet

On measuring Ketones.

Like many people, when I first started a Ketogenic diet in early 2014 I bought the Ketostix and just couldn’t wait to see the color change.

And change it did!

It was neat, and it provided motivation for me to continue.

Eventually, I got a blood meter, a breath meter and spent lots of time (and money) testing ketones. Between a Ketonix Breath Ketone Analyzer, as well as dozens of blood ketone test strips, I’ve probably spent well over $500 testing ketones. The main thing I learned from my extensive ketone testing regimen is that…

My Eulogy For Keto Sanity

No clever titles. No fancy graphics.  No amusing anecdotes.  No fancy SEO tricks.  Just my heart and some raw emotion this one.

I used to believe that what would kill the ketogenic movement would be the quick fix mentality and the “give me a pill” culture of western society. I’ve recently come to the jarring realization that what is going to kill the ketogenic movement has nothing to do with pills and powders, but rather runaway pride.

My concern is that the ketogenic diet, a dietary intervention which has aided so many people in getting a grasp on their…
