I didnt want to clog his discussion in his locker room with newbie questions, so i thought i would ask here. I ask for patience since asking a question correctly can be difficult.
The gist of the thread seemed to suggest that diet minutae after a certain point doesnt really matter. ie: once protein needs are met, fat intake is balanced out, etc then the rest is irrelevent.
My question is where does homeostasis fit into this? Im assuming that you can only loose so much fat at one time. So even if you had a superior method you wouldnt know by measureing merely body fat percentages? As your body would put a halt to it.
We all know that other indicators can be tracked but these wouldnt be relevent for pure body building purposes? So is a calorie only a calorie for body building (after a point) and completely not a calorie for health/longevity?
Maybe there is more to nutrition then just playing with our BF percentages? It would certainly explain why there have been no new methods in bodybuilding but seem to be progress in health and performance.
My thoughts are still cycling through the idea. Any thoughts?
