Check out the Facebook profile for yourself:

"Try eating all red meat before 3pm and all white meat and fish after 3pm. Red meat stimulates the body where white meat and fish calm it."

"Not chewing food enough causes digestive enzymes to not function properly creating food allergies and intolerance"

"Eating breakfast longer than 1hr after you wake up will increase your chance of being obese by 200%."

"Loading up on carbs the night before a big lift at the gym will increase strength output"

"Squating, deadlifting or cleaning in shoes with air soles doesn't transfer energy properly and decreases your lift"

Seriously what the fuck.

"Loading up on carbs the night before a big lift at the gym will increase strength output"

"Squating, deadlifting or cleaning in shoes with air soles doesn't transfer energy properly and decreases your lift"

what's wrong with these? I mean the carb loading thing is over simplified but it's still somewhat true


#3

those last two i take as gospel (well, carbs 10-6hrs before works for me), but the rest is...strange


#4

actually, some of its ok, like remembering to take a shit before training, and the poor posture and tight hams stuff

"Going to the washroom before a workout can increase your lift by up to 20%"

I don't get this one.

And I'm pretty sure not chewing your food enough does not cause enzymes to not function properly. At most, I believe it would only decrease the rate of activity due to the fact that there is not as much surface area as opposed to food that has been chewed more thoroughly.


#6

Only if you push out a turd that is equal weight to 20% of your lift.

"Never cook your protein powder. Only add protein into foods after they have been cooked and cooled a little" Obviously DNAFitness isnt aware of what Lowery has to say about cooking protein in his "Six Things You Need to Know About Protein" article.

They're working off old assumptions.

"Eating fats at night is a great way to stay full and burn bodyfat during sleep. Don't be afraid to have a small snack before bed."

Yes, I've read be burned fat at night but why would you want to eat more fat. You'll be back to square one, no?


#9

^what? thats a new one to me...Maybe eating fat before doing physical activity might make some kind of sense. Train your body to burn fat or something. But right before sleep? Storage much?

During periods of fasting (such as sleep), your body uses the glycogen in your liver and fatty acids as fuel sources. My understanding was that people ate fat before bed in order to slow down digestion, not to "train" your body to burn fat.

I guess that person's assumption was that because fatty acids are used as a fuel source during fasting, it is ok to take in some fats as they will be used as fuel sources.

"Eating breakfast longer than 1hr after you wake up will increase your chance of being obese by 200%."

I think the wording is off here, but the general meaning is pretty true. Usually, the fattest of the fat don't ever eat breakfast, which grinds their metabolisms to a halt.
