I am an endomorph, I follow a low carb diet & do a lot of cardio, would I still get to 10% bodyfat if I take a day off & eat junk food 1 day per week?

I am an endomorph, I follow a low carb diet & do a lot of cardio, would I still get to 10% bodyfat if I take a day off & eat junk food 1 day per week?

Mind change: "body type" / "endomorph" talk is mostly subscience. You'll get yourself lean when, and only when, you lose your taste for high-calorie, unnutritious food. Your athletic peers will reinforce this. It's great that you're doing a lot of cardio, but save the big empty-calorie tickets for when you're out with friends and even then, impress them by eating a salad. Ask your physician for guidance. ...Read more

Endocrinologist: Blood sugar in the 90's should not cause any symptoms. We can only measure extracellular potassium and not intracellular levels. Have you had a glucose tolerance test and, if so, was the curve abnormally flat? An endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about your diet and whether you have any malabsorption problems. Perhaps you are on an improper diet. ...Read more

What is the minimum amount of energy needed for your body to function? I consume 800Cal/day (low carb diet, but eat a bit of everything) and burn 300Cal/day through excercise-am I doing more harm than good?

Women should consume: At least 1, 200 cals/day, and men 1, 800 cals/day, even when trying to lose weight, to avoid a metabolism slowdown. A very-low-calorie diet can cause serious health issues because it does not provide all of the essential nutrients for good health.

Want to eat a high (good) fat low carb diet but it makes my acid reflux act up terribly. Take daily Prevacid (lansoprazole) now. Any advice?

Avoiding triggers: Daily or uncontrolled heartburn despite a PPI (like Prevacid) is a warning sign to stop whatever is triggering it. Fats commonly trigger acid reflux &heartburn, & are thought to do so by relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter. Although Gaviscon is a good add-on med, & lifestyle measures (raise head of bed, avoid eating late, avoid caffeine etc) can lower symptoms, it's best to avoid known triggers. ...Read more
