Post cardio snack? Protein & high on the glycemic index for my advanced strength traing. But what's good post cardio such as 5k 7mph. Fat loss goal
Try drinking water: And not having a snack. If you want to enhance fat burning during cardio, have a cup of tea or coffee about 30 minutes prior to exercise (without sugar or sweeteners). This will help mobilize fat stores and improve endurance during your work out. Iced tea or coffee is good. And if you must have a snack try raw carrots, celery, other vegetables with hummus. Unsalted roasted almonds are good too. ...Read more
What are the benefits of high reps with low weights and low reps with high weights in weight lifting?
Sport's Nutrition: what's the best macro ratio? carbs?protein?fat? for the purpose of building or maintain muscle mass (adding resistance training).
I think it depends: My brief research into this suggests it is debatable & depends somewhat on your goals: bodybuilding vs. fat loss vs. maintenance. More carbs are needed for body building, and many fewer for fat loss. 40-60% carbs are recommended for body building, with 25-35% protein and 15-25% fat. You might target somewhere in the middle: 50% carbs, 30% protein, 20% fat. Good luck! ...Read more
Whey protein: Whey protein is good for you but please do not rely on it as a way of replacing a good diet. The shakes can supplement the other protein, fat, and carbs you eat.

I am not familiar w/the particular brand you mention. ...Read more

Will type 2 diabetes diminish muscle and strength gains from weight lifting? And should insulin use be modified when lifting heavy weights?
Not if controlled: If diabetes is well controlled, it should not diminish the effect of exercise in increasing strength and muscle mass. In order to evaluate whether Insulin needs to be adjusted, you should measure glucose before and after exercise sessions; if the sugar is falling with exercise, you could have a snack before exercising, drink a sports drink during exercise, or decrease Insulin at the meal before. ...Read more
Building strength: It is a great idea to do resistance exercise. Get a physical exam before you start a program. One thing I would suggest is to use a weight you can manage and start slowly and increase gradually to avoid injury. To build strength, I recommend using a pyramid, a weight you can do 10 reps, then more for 6, 3, and 1 rep. Inbox consult me if you want to learn more. You will build strength if you try. ...Read more

Avoid junk calories and focus on nutrition with veggies and fruits. Stay regular and consistent. Good luck. ...Read more
