Suppose you follow my Smart Protocol, Tim Ferriss’s Slow Carb, or a similar lifestyle. In that case, it’s imperative that you overeat on the weekend. This is the design. You won’t be healthy or look good unless you do. Take a look at keto fanatics; they have flat muscles and no tone. If you don’t want your head to be wider than your shoulders, you should listen to the concrete contractor, yours truly, and not disobey the design. It’s a shame that those people keep on preaching their wrong ways; why the stubbornness?
Many people ask me about a certain Youtuber and social media individual with a large following. I investigated the matter and found that the guy is not a strict keto follower. He admits to carb-ups every now and then. That’s why he looks good and, more importantly, if you checked his older photos when he was fat, you’ll see he’s an individual with a blessed partitioning. He obviously is not on the red end of the nutrient partitioning spectrum. He simply was overweight because of overeating, and any calorie-restricted diet would have worked for him. Keto and fasting wasn’t his only choice. The sad truth even fasting and keto works better for people on the purple side of the spectrum. But don’t be discouraged as it still works and works fine for you and will keep on working. It will give you the results you desire.
If you are on the red end of the spectrum, then to any considerable degree, both fat burning and muscle building are practically impossible unless you adopt a lifestyle that matches your metabolic nature. The “calories in versus calories out” and all the fitness advice do not apply to you and simply won’t work. If you try to “bulk,” you will gain lots of fat, and you will lose muscle, and if you try to “cut,” you’ll lose more muscle than fat. You are damned unless you follow my advice. You reached a point on the spectrum where biochemistry impedes the common fitness rationale.
Yes, calorimetry and the 1st law of thermodynamics still apply, but you partition differently. When you consume “clean” foods such as oats and rice every day, your muscles get starved. The rise of insulin or consuming fructose or some other factor results in insulin resistance in the muscles, and nobody still knows for sure why it happens. So what can be the purpose? I gave it lots of thought. How can that be beneficial to our survival? Are the muscles trying to protect themselves from harm, or do they become resistant because an ancient system perceives constant feeding as a sign to prepare you for hibernation? The 2nd option makes sense if you think about it. Your body will need to store fat for you to survive the extended hibernation and wouldn’t need the muscles because you’ll be sleeping.
If you use your stretched, your deductive, logic a bit, you can also find an explanation for type 2 diabetes. You eat as if you’re going into hibernation, but you don’t hibernate, and you keep on eating. Your body just can’t keep up, and the fat cells themselves become resistant. The fat cells have stored more than enough to keep you alive through the longest possible hibernation. Everything that happens after that if you keep on eating occurs as a result. The solution is not medication but to tackle the main problem. Some of you may ask, so why are type 2 diabetics constantly hungry even when the fat stores are full? The answer is simple: you are not supposed to be in this situation in the 1st place, and your body isn’t designed for that. What happens is your muscles are starving; they keep sending some sort of an undiscovered yet signal that they are starving, and at the same time, they are resistant. They won’t take enough nutrients from what you consume.
I believe several small-molecule chemical messengers haven’t been discovered yet. Short peptides composed of a few number of amino acids or amino acids linked to a cation. Just look at how powerful the more active form of the thyroid hormone (T3) is and its effects on almost every aspect of human metabolism. It’s a tiny molecule composed of 3 iodine cations linked to an amino acid. The odds are that several other small molecules do exist and send powerful ancient signals about energy status and demand. If you’re well informed about the technical aspect of laboratory testing methods, you’ll know how impossible it is to discover such molecules.
can we assume that there are different types of humans?
Beyond the teenage hormone balancing years, is the adult man supposed to be virile every day of the year? Let’s think about it from an evolutionary or a survival point of view. The most challenging part of this that complicates the analysis is knowing which environment the dominant genetic aspect of the individual is supposed to survive in? Is it good weather all year, or is it a cold, harsh environment where you’re supposed to hibernate? If it’s the 1st one, were there predators that killed many humans, and we needed to breed whenever the chance presented itself for the race to survive? Or should we eat according to the seasons and become virile only at a particular breeding season if it’s the latter?
We can also look at it from a different logic. If the females of the human species are fertile and ovulate every month, then shouldn’t the males be virile all the time? How about animals that hibernate, for example, the grizzly bear? Is the female grizzly bear fertile all year? Does ovulation occur during hibernation? If the answer is no, then can we assume that there are different types of humans? A type that was genetically designed to hibernate and reproduce in certain seasons, therefore, needed to overfeed to get fat and unmuscular to hibernate again. And maybe a second type that evolved somewhere else and did not hibernate.
