This is the /fit/ FAQ. You should read it.

It contains a fuckton of incredibly useful information for anyone seeking to improve their physical fitness.

If you post a question which has already been answered in this FAQ, don't be surprised if you find your post mocked, saged, or missing.

It's here for a reason.

Credit belongs to ZigCat for the original FAQ, with small amendments by /fit/ as a whole. RIP ZC.

hey people,
so I've never posted on here but I thought maybe you guys would have an idea of what I"m looking for. I haven't been able to find any reliable info about the amount of calories burned at my job. Some say 200 an hour, some say 400 for six hours.
I work at a grocery store as a clerk, so I lift boxes (~10 - 50lbs) of product onto carts, push these carts, and then bring them to shelves and stock.

I generally work 8 hour shifts - breaks = ~7 hours of work generally.

Any ideas would be helpful, thanks!

I'd say something like fifty calories over your baseline metabolism. Unless you break a sweat light work doesn't add up

I have a theory that all my ailments like frequently recurring flus, irritable bowel, etc. derive from my tonsils and the swallowing of bacteria that fester in my mouth overnight when I wake up. I have the mouth issue resolved mostly through mouthwash and brushing teeth which I take and do before bed and in the morning, but the tonsils are a problem. I know they are deep pockets with too many folds or something which accumulate debris and pave the way for that awful smell that always lingers in the back of your throat if you open things up a certain way. My bedroom stinks in the morning because of it. It is just foul. And my body must have a sensitive response to the bacteria which the body quickly remove once ingested by fluid-like passing of fecal matter.

How do I dig deep into the tonsils regularly to clean? I know, I know,


is what everyone will give me, but it seems to only scratch a bit of the surface and nothing deep into it. I want to go deep and remove everything to feel alive for once. Is there professional tonsil cleaning offered somewhere that cleans everything?

For the record, I've already noticed that my shit solider by regularly washing out my mouth with bacteria-killing fluid.

The bacteria you excrete, normally live in your bowels. The dry weight of your feces is approximately 40% bacteria. You have more bacteria living in your intestines than you have cells in your whole body.

If what you said was in any way, a correct way of thinking, the following situation would be true:

Person A(OP): I had such a terrible headache yesterday, I felt as if demons were jumping on my right forehead.

Person B(me): There are no such things as demons, OP, you idiot. You probably suffer from migraines or something.

Person C(you): How do you suppose that you have been bestowed the position to get upset at/discredit someone's first-hand experience of something with your own supposition--the kind of supposition you throw OP down for? Is thinking of new reasons against your self-policy?

I would end with a decent ad hominem, but I don't think you deserve it.

>The bacteria you excrete, normally live in your bowels. The dry weight of your feces is approximately 40% bacteria. You have more bacteria living in your intestines than you have cells in your whole body.
Right! So with what you just said, we can go back to the argument that started all of this: what /if/ there are some people who are allergic to these bacteria? Whether the ones living in the body or ingested? The bacteria that sit in your mouth over night (and some that get caught in the crevices of the throat for long periods of time (hence that extremely foul smelling breath in certain people which goes beyond the tongue and side cheeks) which are then swallowed and rejected by the body in the same manner that bacteria-ladened food (of unwanted kinds) is rejected by the body?

How can you correlate demons with a logical idea that starts at an observation and deduces a conclusion?
What's more confusing than the process of trial and error is someone who is so confident in a refutation that they immediately reject the logical idea and put in place their conception of it to be in line with folkloric demonism. You will never agree because that's just the way you are: you're stubborn, and I wouldn't go so far to say that you are unintelligent simply because I know somewhere in your brain exists the capacity to consider new things and how they are relevant in some tangential way or another. When there are no answers, a consistent observation is more interesting than your (I'm trying not to say unintelligent, but is it actually appropriate here?) correlation to demonic mythology.

There exists conditions in which white blood cells attack organs because it is considered a foreign object to the body. To go a leap and a jump "out of the box" from this, how is the thought of OP less to consider than the possibility that your own body can attack itself?... To "refuse" parts of the body that should or shouldn't be there, normally or not. There is currently no known cause to IBS, so I'm jumping on the bandwagon of opportunity rather than your absolute miserable, inhibited, stubborn confidence.

If this idea turns out to be untrue, those who are interested in finding a cause will move on and find another. You can't just pretend the answer is no to everything.
Is it possible that your ego is fuelled on giving the appearance that you are right all the time? Do you chance the likely odds that the answer is "no" regardless of the quality being presented? The reason I question this is because of your intellectually-frightening correlation to demons, your abrupt denial, and the ego are putting up which I know is very rigid.

Anonymous 15/04/18(Sat)08:56 No. 18090

but darling, for me to respect your opinion, you musn't form word groups like "allergic to bacteria"

the disease in which your white cells mistake your own cells as foreign bodies is called an autoimmune disorder. Irritable bowel syndrome is not an autoimmune disorder.

Besides, you are missing the point in two ways:
1- The scientific bits
Almost all bacteria you ingest are eliminated by your stomach. The ones which would colonize your tonsils do not have the mechanisms necessary to survive this harsh acidic environment.
The bacteria which live in your gut are composed of different organisms, mostly neutral and some actually beneficial. We call this the gut flora (as in flora "and fauna"), or gut microbiota.

OP thinks all his ailments ("recurring flus, irritable bowel, etc.") are caused by him swallowing his tonsil-colonizing bacteria.

Flu is caused by viruses, not bacteria, and not the side-products of bacteria. This rules out that OP's tonsillitis causes the recurring flu.

Irritable bowel syndrome has multiple causes, such as immune deficiency, stress, or bacterial overgrowth (even that, not by the bacteria which involve the tonsils).

Do consciously and/or intentionally taxonomically analyse things in your everyday life? I want to find out if this is normal and healthy behaviour. Please state if you are a scientist or have OCD. I have both so it might be due to one or both of those sources of deviance.

Anonymous 14/06/05(Thu)04:24 No. 14166

I analyze and categorize most of my and others actions and behaviors, and mostly any other thing I care for. It's just my way to relate with the world.
It's normal and healthy as far as you're comfortable with it and you're somehow socially functional.
Because you asked, I'll state that I'm an advanced medicine student, but I'm pretty unsure of my own mental health (or the very existence of such thing). I think you're healthy if you feel so and none tells you otherwise. I don't think psychiatrists would necessarily disagree with that, and if they do, who cares for those idiots.
The question is, why do you think your behavior could not be normal or healthy, and why would you care about it.

The Ketogenic Diet 14/12/01(Mon)08:42 No. 16691 [Reply]

File 14174197602.jpg - (41.30KB , 440x331 , ketone-diet.jpg )

Hey /fit/,
After reading up on the ketogenic diet, I've come up with a couple of questions and qualms about it.
I know a couple of you here are firm adherents to the keto diet, so can you explain these please?

1- The brain works on glucose, and will have no substitute. Your body metabolizes the fats into ketone bodies, which can cause ketoacidosis if unmonitored. This state of constant mild hypoglycemia, I'm sure, leads to defects in mental function (named the "keto-mind-fog"). This is not as unsignificant as websites would have you believe, such a mind-fog would be devastating for people whose jobs require high mental output.

2- A high-fat diet means chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, and HDL; bubbles of lipids and lipoproteins in your bloodstream, transporting the fuel to wherever it is needed. The problem is, a high LDL amount is linked and causative with vascular diseases like atherosclerosis. Conversely, a high HDL is linked with a reduction in such diseases. The function of HDL is to bring fats back to the liver to be metabolized during the fasting/hunger state. Does the (presumed) increase in HDL make up for the increase in LDL? Is it even safe to have so much lipids in the bloodstream to begin with? A high fat diet increases the expression of inflammatory mediators, which leads to all sorts of health problems, and also causes insulin resistance (the pivotal point of developing metabolic syndrome).

3- Besides supplements, you can only get a certain percentage of necessary micronutrients from a ketogenic diet, like minerals, folic acid, fat-burning phytochemicals like adiponectin. Also you consume a low amount of dietary fibre. Diets rich in fibre have been shown to reduce the risks of breast and colonic cancer. While red meat (especially the processed kind) has been shown to do the opposite. Is this trade-off for better physique/weight loss favorable?

4- Just making your portions smaller (calorie counting) combined with regular exercise should work with everyone (unless they have a medical condition - though I cannot think of any). Why should people try to adapt to such a drastic change in eating routine? It might be useful from a public health perspective to promote this in countries like the US where people drink sugary "soda"s to oblivion, but the Mediterranean diet provides a much better (though perhaps not as efficient) alternative in terms of overall nutrition. Wouldn't it be better to remove simple carbohydrates (like potato starch or simply sugar in the form of sweets, chocolate bars, etc.) from the diet in such countries?

Please don't get angry with me, I'm just trying to find out if there is something I've missed.

This is just a fleeting reply, I don't have the necessary amount of concentration at the moment:

Dietary fibre is known to decrease cholesterol (we even know the mechanism behind it), it also gives a better-tolerated consistency and frequency to your bowel movements. Heck, there is quite a lot of research suggesting it decreases the risk of colorectal carcinoma; and the opposite is true for red meat.
Your paragraph proves my point that the brain needs glucose to operate. Gluconeogenesis is the body's way of creating glucose (gluco-neo-genesis), so it can be used by organs (especially the brain and muscles -though via different means) in the fasting-state. There is nothing laughable about this (and I don't like your tone in this sentence either). The liver creates glucose so the brain uses it. Why? Because the brain will have nothing else.
"Fluffy large particle LDL that doesn't damage arteries" there is no consensus on this subject. But I'll give you the benefit of doubt. Even so, what makes pattern A (large fluffy) levels increase? What makes them decrease? Fasting? Diabetes? We can't say for certain at the moment.
If the person indeed does have insulin resistance, then the bad thing to do for them would be to get on a diet they themselves have cooked up (instead of one given by a dietitian).
Although I'm pleased with the insight you've provided, you know that anecdotal evidence is pretty much useless...
Let's keep the discussion going though (I had forgotten I had created this thread)

Anonymous 15/03/01(Sun)01:16 No. 17675

Hello 7/fit/

I come to you as a refugee. I apologize for necroing the thread but the other /fit/ is anti keto. Here's my question:

Okay keto vets, I get into ketosis about 2 weeks out of the month. I understand the basics about alcohol and ketosis. Thing is I've never personally done it.

I'm currently in ketosis and I know my preferred drink (whiskey) will not kick me out of ketosis, but it will slow the fat burning process due to my body burning the alcohol before the ketones. I know all the alcohol has to be gone first, but how long does this process take? How long would it take for my body to burn say, 5 shots, and return back to burning ketones? Just the 300-500 calories from the whiskey?

Anonymous 15/03/05(Thu)03:05 No. 17705

OP here

I'd refrain from drinking alcohol while dieting, because it's basically just empty useless calories (and impairs your fitness as well). (you probably knew this, but I'll say it anyways)

However, those kinds of dry drinks (vodka, whiskey, gin, etc.) are probably the best you can go to in a keto diet, because they do not contain any carbohydrates (afaik). So, I think you should be fine once you burn the alcohol calories (easily done if you work out regularly).
