    Thanks. Years of campus board training with extra weight finally pay of. But I have to be absolutely rested and can't do more than one. A young strong climbing buddy of mine (like 10 strongest here in Germany bouldering V15) can do a one arm pull up with 17kg extra weight on a crimp. That is insane. I can barely hang on that beast maker crimp one handed. But he is 24 and has been training hard since he was 16. Oh well... The fountain of youth.

    That's another thing where age comes in. I can't train more than three times a week and need at least two rest days before sending hard. He trains 5 times a week and can do 2 on one off when he is out on rock.

    Here is what those young whippersnappers do while training.

    Danny, impossible was not stated as you can see in my post that you quoted. Easier said than done...absolutely. Maybe not for you, but for many and probably most. Not everyone is a type A personality and certainly, not everyone wants to fast because that just fucking sucks.

    Genetics certainly play a role. I'm probably lucky in that department, but I was a vegetarian for 10+ years mid 20's thru 30's and still limit my red meat intake. Low sugar diet, no mcshit food, I haven't had a soda in...I can't remember when...25 years? But I drink a lot of high calories beer and my portions of healthy food are too big. I should probably be 165lb, but I really just don't give a shit because I'm happy and I'm type B.

    How can you have a low sugar diet and drink a lot of craft beer?

    Point being if you drink a lot of high point beer you are not running a low sugar diet. Which then undermines the claim of diet regulation not working. The scale dgaf if you drink 10lbs or eat it.

    every Canadian food product has a white label telling you how much a portion is and how much sugar it has but i doubt anybody looksa at it, right now post mtb ride I am drinking a can of soda water on ice avec a big shot of lime which tells me a can is a 355ml serving and its all fucking zero's

    I cut out all added sugars including honey and I check the white labels to find the product with the lowest sugar levels, at the same time I cut portion sizes, I lost 15-20lbs i lost the little gut, I went from overweight to a normal BMI and my a1c went down from almost 9 to almost 7

    So if you are overeating its more than just being fat and happy it ain't good for your blood sugar


    every since the 2 craft brewpubs openned just a few blocks away I have gained 2-3 lbs, my a1c is up maybe half a point and the rent money my tennant brings up stairs no longer lasts til the next time she pays the rent

    last year when my back was fucked i did absolutely nothing for 8 weeks, drank a lot of craft brew ate exactly the same as I always do and gained no weight

    The year I skied 106 days mostly uphill and quit drinking for 6 months the same thing happened, i neither gained or lost weight

    mutherfucking portion control eh

    Huh? Beer doesn't have sugar, or very little. All the sugar has been converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.

    My bad - inarticulate. Point being that someone with great spending habits for the most part but a little gambling addiction is going to have awful financial results. Same goes for pairing 'low sugar' diets with high booze consumption. It negates the benefits being sought in the first place.

    The emotional attachment to the dope (skittles, porters or cinnamon rolls - doesn't matter) is the undoing of many a plan to regulate weight & energy.

    oy

    carbs are sugars. there are simple and complex. the difference between a simple carb
    and complex is how easily it is digested and absorbed

    Yeah. I just started swimming laps at a late age because it's the ultimate low impact aerobic activity. Waterproof headphones, an edible, and just get into the zone. Awesome.

    These topics go right to the core of deeply personal habits & weaknesses. It's impossible for emotion not to interfere and manipulate you into thinking A or B hybrid plan can work and satisfy your impulse.

    I'd lose weight with a fridge that looked like that... since I wouldn't drink ANY of that shit.

    1. LOL at the idea that I'm Type A. No one who knows me IRL would say that.

    2. You don't need to fast, but you have a lot more wiggle room in your diet if you do. Seeing as how the most common complaints with healthy eating are the cost and time commitment, well, not eating solves those two issues quite nicely.

    Beer is good, there's no denying that. Depending on your perspective I'm either lucky or unlucky in that regard. These days alcohol just makes me feel terrible and I've involuntarily cut my intake close to zero.

    Athletic performance in your 40s?

    Getting close to 2,500 miles on the bike for the year. Woke up this morning at 138lbs at 5’10”. Heat has no effect on me right now, in fact I crave the hot days. Got back a gear while climbing, that always feels good. Trying to lean out as much as possible for the Overland on the 25th. They reopened registration a few times now, looks like about 900 people, mass start!
