If I am reading that correctly, it is stating that consuming artificial sweeteners tricks your body into thinking it is consuming sugar and produces many of the same metabolic effects so that while your calorie count may go down all of the other negative health effects are still present. Is that right?

Sup bitches. How's everyone doing? I'm doing great this week, thanks for asking.

-Lowest body weight
-PR dumbbell bench press for 8 reps
-x2 PR's for deadlift

TFW, you deadlift your old PR for 3 and then deadlift your original fat starting weight before walking the path of iron

I ate a sandwich today for lunch because it was catered for my orientation day at my new job. It was tasty. I felt terrible within 15 minutes.

Does anyone want to school me on sodium and potasium? My sodium intake has been off the charts lately and potasium has been pretty low.

Time for a big cut. 6 weeks off work. Nothing to do but spend cash on my car while crying...and work out.

-HIIT cardio 3x a week in the mornings. Wind sprints.
-6 lifting sessions a week. Volume work. Saturday will be an extra compound-lift day focusing on deadlifts, hang cleans, snatches and lots of stretching.
-Mini cardio session after lifting. 13-15 minutes LIIT/HIIT on the treadmill to help keep metabolism working late.

-Eating 4-5 times a day but keeping a caloric deficit while keeping a strict Macro scale for fats/protein/carbs.

I'm at 205lbs right now. The goal is 185lbs by the 2nd week in October.

Lets do this.

Im down to ~177 from 190. I haven't been doing strict low carb, Im still getting carbs but only from natural sources like fruit. I dont want to get in the habit of eating nothing but meat and cheese.

Like I stated in the beginning of this thread. Zero cal is ******* bullshit. How combustible food is has nothing to do with the human metabolism and artificial sugar is just as bad for you as normal sugar.
I drink water all day like a bawse.

I havent even been exercising. Just not eating **** and drinking soda, and Im losing weight. Before I was busting *** on my bicycle every day, still eating ****, and I didnt lose any weight.
Once I get back on my exercise schedule, and continue eating well, I should be able to go back to being a skinny **** like back in the day.

seems like this thread got a little of topic but:

I drink diet soda often (and probably alot more than I should) and I am at 5% body fat. So diet soda alone will not make you fat.


Also those trying to loose weight try insanity. That **** works if you follow the schedule and eat healthy. I went from 13% to 8% body fat in 2 months.

Who cares? Donuts alone won't make you fat either. Doesn't make them healthy, and doesn't mean it's not making your life harder.

Also, time for a new China Study!

but all kidding aside I really should look into this topic... But right now it falls into the TLDR category for most articles. I did cut all soda out of my diet for a year once and didn't notice much of a difference when I returned to drinking it again.

alcohol, on the other hand, is a different story. I feel much more energetic and athletic when I cut all alcohol from my diet. sorry for the thread drift.

There is no way you'll ever be able to convince anyone that drinking soda has no negative effects, long term or otherwise. I sure as hell noticed a huge difference.

Insanity is good but it burns muscle. I did it to get myself into semi-shape so I could start lifting heavy and running easily.

Now it's all about HIIT and heavy weights.

I bloated hardcore over the 4 day lake house meet. Alcohol, sugar, carbs, etc...13lbs of water weight, lol. Took me a week to get it all off.

U're gonna die regardless.

I used to drink soda. 4-5 cans a day, every day. Nothing but soda. Then I got kidney stones.. it was awful. I stopped drinking soda. Water only... 3 years later got kidney stones again.

I feel like cyotani must be pretty close to his Golden Mean. I don't think he is trying to convince anyone there are no negative side effects or that it's particularly healthy. Assuming his 5% BF is not BS, he seems to have a reasonable handle on his situation.

Mark - Screwdrivers and gin & tonics alone won't make you fat either. Doesn't make them healthy; and doesn't mean it's not making your life harder. On the other hand, it might make your life a lot more enjoyable than being a teetotaler.

Recently, I drank several bourbon cocktails the night before I ran my second competitive 5k. I turned in a personal best of ~8:17/mile pace, then I had some thick cut bacon and cinnamon rolls cooked in a waffle iron.

In what way is "HIIT" different from Insanity, which I would consider high intensity interval training? How are you deciding that it "burns muscle?"

What your analysis leaves out is that screwdrivers and gin&tonics are awesome and diet soda is nasty.
