Sore Muscles And Lactic Acid, Concerning Exercise Pain

I go to the gym to lift weights around 4-5 times per week. I’m writing this blog approximately 48 hours after I fully exerted myself, working my chest muscles. Because it was a particularly lengthy workout, I am still experiencing some muscle discomfort and soreness. I’m using this blog to determine the causes of muscle soreness from strenuous exercise and examine how the human body reacts to exercise. Firstly, let’s differentiate between the 3 types of exercise pain. There is pain experienced either during or immediately after exercise, delayed-onset muscle soreness, and pain brought upon by muscle cramps. The first and third types of pain are rather self-explanatory, however, delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is an entirely different beast. DOMS is induced only by extreme muscle lengthening during exercise, and is not felt during exercise. Some prime examples of when one might experience DOMS include tightness after running downhill or lifting heavy weights, marking it as the type of soreness I am currently undergoing. During exercise the human body does all sorts of things to try and regulate bodily functions. There are many common misconceptions about the buildup of la Continue reading >>

    > Bladder Pain and Ketosis

    I dont know if I am imagining this or not but, but everytime I go into Ketosis, my bladder seems to hurt. Does anyone know if bladder pain can be a symptom of ketosis?? I have bladder pain and some burning sensations when I pee (I know this is a symptom of bladder infection too, but it seems to come and go with ketosis)

    Is it possible that you're reading a strong positive for ketosis partially because you're not drinking enough?

    Well, I googled 'bladder pain and ketosis' and came across this blurb..
    Ketosis is a metabolic state in which the body produces ketones to be used as fuel by some organs so that glycogen can be reserved for organs that depend on it. It is important when looking for information on ketosis that it is not confused for ketoacidosis - a very unhealthy state of being. It is unfortunately all too common for information sources to conflate these two and thus pronounce ketosis as bad.
    Because glucose is commonly accepted as the body's primary fuel source, putting the body into a state where burning something other than glucose for fuel is subsequently regarded as a form of starvation. Yet, the human body has a well-defined mechanism for literally burning fat for fuel (I think it's important to realize that even in the presence of glucose, some tissues in the human body still prefer to use fat for fuel. Ironically, the heart is one of those, despite the fact that the intended purpose of low-fat diets is to save your heart). When the body uses fat as energy, it's in a state of ketosis.
    When you stop eating glucose (ie: carbohydrates), your body begins the process of ketosis. In ketosis, the liver starts unpacking fat cells so that your body can use the fatty acids for fuel. It also produces ketone bodies, which the body also uses for fuel - especially the brain. The benefits of ketosis are numerous - lowered blood pressure, lower cholesterol, low triglycerides, improved insulin sensitivity, and weight loss without regard to calorie count. Other reported benefits are common - lack of hunger, lack of cravings, improved mood, lessened anxiety, and greater mental concentration. Variations on ketogenic diets are used to control various medical conditions including acne, heartburn and acid reflux, thyroid problems, epilepsy, and type 2 diabetes.
    Negative side effects of a ketogenic diet include light-headedness, headache, lethargy, weakness, feeling cold, diarrhea, and nausea. These side effects are only temporary and go away once the body has fully made the switch from burning glucose to burning fat (within the first week). They are almost universally acknowleged as symptoms of withdrawal from sugar.
    The body is very capable of regulating ketone bodies, so unless there is a major problem (Alcoholics and type 1 diabetics often have problems with ketone regulation), you should be just fine. For those people who do have a major problem, however, they can develop ketoacidosis. Essentially, their bodies no longer regulate the ketones in their blood, and they start building up. The more they build up, the more they change the acidity of the blood in your body, and that's very dangerous. The complications of ketoacidosis include halitosis, extreme thirst, frequent urination, contant fatigue, dry skin, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, and mental confusion.
    If you're looking to lose weight without eating less, improve your mood and mental acuity, or even to solve some common health issues like acne or acid reflux, a ketogenic diet (also called a homeostatic diet) may be exactly the right tool for you. Just keep an eye out for the symptoms of ketoacidosis, and you should have no problems at all once you get past those nasty withdrawal symptoms.

Fibromyalgia - Possible Causes And Implications For Treatment

Contents 1 How energy is produced in cells 2 So what goes wrong in fibromyalgia? 3 So why this switch into glycolysis? 4 Implications for Treatment 5 See Also 5.1 Related articles 5.2 External links Fibromyalgia is just a symptom - it just means pain in the muscles. It occurs very commonly with chronic fatigue syndrome because I suspect the underlying causes are similar. How energy is produced in cells All cells require energy in order to work. There are two ways that they can get their energy. Normally energy is supplied to cells by mitochondria (little organelles within cells), which supply energy in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) via a process called Oxidative Phosphorylation. This process requires oxygen, is extremely efficient and is the way in which the vast majority of energy is produced for the vast majority of time. You might enjoy watching a very interesing presentation on oxidative phosphorylation published on the website of Purdue University, Indiana. (Details in External Links below) The second way in which cells can get energy is through Glycolysis. From an evolutionary point of view this is a very much more primitive way of supplying energy. It does not req Continue reading >>

    I'm 4kg away from my goal (8lbs or so for the old-school measures), which I plan to lose this month. The current problem I am facing, not enough fat in my ratios (it would be great if the ratios would be something like 85% fat, 15% protein). My current diet consists of:
    Eggs (yard/organic mixed with floor-raised): 10g fat, 12g protein
    Nuts and seeds (peanuts, almonds, sunflower, pistachio, brazilnuts, cashews, etc): 48g fat, 21g protein
    Cheese (all kinds of fresh and cured cheeses): 27g fat, 27g protein
    Oils (at least a spoon of grapeseed, peanut, sunflower): 100g fat
    Meats (beef, pork, chicken, ground, salmon): 15g fat, 30g protein
    Fish (tuna): 1g fat, 99g protein
    Bacon: 41g fat, 37g protein.
    Butter: 99g fat, 1g protein
    Vegetables which have irrelevant contents
    Obviously I can't gobble oil and butter drenched bacon with eggs all day, butter doesn't stick to eggs and bacon, and I don't really fancy cream at all (I never cook it right, I do eat plenty when it's in dishes from other people). Also eating seeds and nuts can go only so far (50g or so a day) and they have lots of carbs. Like some of the other foods.
    I plan to get:
    Coconut oil/butter
    Peanut butter
    I might be inclined to get but don't plan to get:
    MCT oil supplements
    Creams
    TL;DR: Looking for suggestions of palatable foods with very high fat ratios, suggestions welcomed. Yes, this question has been posted before, no recent threads though. What do you cook/buy when you want to get the highest fat?
    EDIT: Thanks for your supportive and informative replies, I'll look into each recommendation and see how it works for me.

    Avacado. Like deviled eggs? I sprinkle paprika on my avacado - soooooo good!
    Drink coffee? Load on heavy cream.
    Eat salads? Instead of dressing I use high fat oil and occasional spices. Or look for high fat dressings too, but oil is generally good. My favourite is olive oil with hot peppers soaking in to give It a bit of flavour.
    Cover EVERYTHING in mayonnaise. For me this involves adding a generous dollop of mayo to burgers or to cutting up leftover chicken breast and making lazy mans chicken salad.
    I've been doing these things and I get a loooot of fat in my diet this way.
    Make sure when buyin meats you get the least lean kind and try to get chicken skin on. Make sure you compare Lables, some brands are fattier than others for things like bacon or sausage.

    A spoonful of coconut oil along with it helps a ton, and makes it taste awesome.

Six Lies You Were Taught About Lactic Acid

Everything you’ve learned up to this point is wrong. Lactic acid is nasty stuff. Your muscles produce it during intense exercise. It’s a metabolic byproduct that makes no contribution to exercise performance. It causes muscle fatigue and post-exercise muscle soreness. No wonder the best endurance athletes don’t produce as much lactic acid. Actually, none of the above statements is true. Recent research has demonstrated that lactic acid is not what we once though it was, in almost every way. Read on, and learn the truth behind the lies you’ve been told. Lie #1: Muscles Produce Lactic Acid During Exercise The muscles do not produce lactic acid during exercise. They produce a very similar compound called lactate. Whatever you call it, this substance is not produced as a waste product of anaerobic metabolism, as once believed. It’s actually an intermediate link between anaerobic and aerobic metabolism. Lie #2: Lactic Acid Causes Muscle Fatigue Most athletes believe that lactate (as we’ll call it from now on) causes muscle fatigue by making the muscles too acidic to contract effectively. This is not true. While the muscles do become more acidic during exercise, lactate is no Continue reading >>

    I am feeling rather upset and concerned right now at this time. I have been OP since i started this program this time around..Not a lick , taste or a bite and my numbers show the continuous losses from week to week..I have been so happy being in ketosis and not feeling hungry...
    HOWEVER... I was feeling seriously nauseated in the store today, felt like i was going to puke...so my hubby grabbed me a 1 litre gingerale and we booked it out of there pronto...I get to the car, unscrew the cap and suck it back like nobodys business...hoping that it would help..Well..good news is..it did help... BAD NEWS is... It wasnt diet ...
    I didnt even look at the label on the bottle till after i had drank some..Usually i pick up diet .... i never buy the sugar laden soft drinks..but my hunny must have picked it up in a rush, and didnt look..and of course me thinking that he has my best interest at heart..assumed it was diet....
    So now im seriously conerned i have knocked myself out of ketosis...
    The carb content per 8oz were 25 grams of carbs... 16 grams of sugar...
    I measured the rest of the gingerale out when i got home to see how much i had drank..and it looks like maybe 1/2 a cup was gone..My question is...if thats half a cup...then thats about 13 total carbs for that 1/2 cup....
    My other food for the day..has consisted of..
    morning shake: 2 g net carb
    Lunch shake : 2 g net carb
    wafer packet alternative: 6 net carb
    So thats 10 grams of Net carbs without adding in vegs yet...So 10 plus 12 is 22 Net carbs...will this kick me out of ketosis????? Ive worked so hard to stay OP 100% I dont want to have ruined it...

    Look on the bright side...this will make for an excellent update on IPTV!

    I'm way too new to be an expert, but I've done LOTS of reading on the forums since starting. I have seen more than one person post that their coach allowed for a "cheat" day (which I can only assume means they would be eating a lot more carbs than usual) followed by 2 days on VERY strict phase 1 protocol with NO restricted packets/bars. Not something to make a habit of, but it might be worth doing for the next 2 days and talk to your coach. You might stall just a little but you shouldn't lose too much ground.
