    great stuff @Paz5 late to the party as always.

    I dont think alcohol qualifies in anyway as a macronutrient. its not present in the majority foods and on its own offers not nutritional value.

    I think its also worth talking further about amino acids, essential versus non essential especially for the purist vegans.

    Good and bad cholesterol deserve a mention as well especially good cholesterol and its role in cellular membrane formation and maintenance and the production of hormones.

    keep up the good works.


    ps on spread.

    Great stuff mate , thank you
    I have allways had a decent diet but never more than trying to eat balanced healthy meals , I have no idea of my calorie intake or macro split , I don't I tend to be strict with a meal or diet plan as I don't need to but I do want to get a little more serious than I am now and actually look at what I am eating ,
    I clearly have alot of reading to do and trudging through the mountains of crap info , just googled lean bulk diet plan , wow it of shit
    I will continue my own reasearch but does anyone have an app or web site that has a sensible meal plan that I can use to start ,
    Peace

    Honestly I think you should invest the time in developing a meal plan with foods that you enjoy and reaches your macro-nutrient targets for whatever goals you have. Having that knowledge and being able to do things on the fly (even easier now with apps like myfitnesspal) will go a long way.

    Cheers mate , yeh I really should invest the time , it's not like I want to be super lean or bulk like crazy but yes diet is a major factor and one area that I have neglected to look at closely , I do have a healthy diet though , but yes it's worth giving it a go and seeing what difference it makes ,
    I wi check out myfitnesspal , can't right now coz I am at work but home in a few weeks so will look then , any other diet apps or sight recommendations would be golden

    Cheers for your reply

    Even if you just track things for a little while it will go a long way down the track because you'll develop a good idea of what macros are in foods you eat often.

    www.calorieking.com.au is another pretty good site for getting nutritional information, but myfitnesspal is the best I've used for actually tracking your diet

    I suppose this belongs Here; this is an interesting discussion on another forum (non bb related). The Op was about calories in v calories out, that if someone has a caloric excess then they will undoubtedly gain weight. Then -

    Not necessarily. Some people will just do larger turds. You're assuming that 100% of the energy consumed (eaten) is converted in the gut, it isn't. Food generally stays in the gut for the same amount of time (per volume) - but some peoples gut flora is less efficient at breaking down starches etc into sugars, meaning that those people, even if they eat calorie dense foods, don't harvest all of the excess energy.
    Unfortunately for people who are obese and have been eating calorie dense foods for a long time, their gut flora is more likely to be more efficient..


    Thoughts??

    gut health and digestion are nearly as important as what you eat.

    types of foods, the combinations and amount of fibre all play a part. as does water consumed. but generally food will be in the guy long enough to start getting absorbed. Its the acids and bile in the stomach that do most of the breakdown its a very strong acid and unless you have health issues its unlikely you will have huge issues with breakdown. of course not always 100% bit not small enough to not count, unless your ill.

    remember CHO absorption starts in the mouth, finishes in the small intestine, its the small intestine that does most of the nutrient absorption. the large intestine the poo poo. other factors above and internal health control how long food sits in the small. more food of course equals more poo poo. you will still get fat on excess cals if your on the play station or fb all day. sad fact. :euro:

    ps gentic freaks and sick people aside.

    Thanks [MENTION=2479]grubeface[/MENTION], oh wise one. I'd have thought though for the vast majority the cals in cals out argument would be a one?
