     Huh       I never heard of sterilized bones?

 


They sell them at our local Fleet Farm - American made - they're stuffed with peanut butter flavored "stuff".
7902  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Pet Board / Re: Pet Insurance on: April 01, 2007, 05:32:10 PM
bones are bad if they're cooked.


RAW BONES ONLY

Sterilized shin bones ok?

my boy is crated

He has to be or there would be no home to come home to.

Sounds like more exercise is in order.
Seems like exercise is the answer to 99% of behavior problems.

Are you having a meniscectomy or are they going to try and repair it?

when you're not home?

I'm amazed at how well Scout behaves when we're not home.  No separation anxiety, no accidents, no mischief...  He didn't even have a problem when the roof was being replaced a couple of months ago and that was REALLY noisy.

Does anyone have it?

I got 30 days "included" with Scout when I got him from the Humane Society.  Out of about $250 bucks in vet bills (he had an upper resp. infection which was covered), I got back about $13 bucks.

but will he lose muscles?

That's going to happen on any diet.  Sparing as much as possible through macronutrient and exercise manipulation is a challenge we all face.

seriously, people with a cat will have a different calorie intake than people with a dog or a rabbit.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

What if you have one of each?  Do they cancel eachother out?
7915  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Dieting: Help me get cut and dry on: March 30, 2007, 07:25:51 PM
I'm gonna start dieting next week and i need some advice.

How many cals should i eat? how do you figure out how many you need?
Should i keep them at the same amount, or start high and gradually decrease them ?


Generally, 10-12 calories per pound for weight loss.  Try starting out with 12 and slowly decrease when you hit a plateau.
7916  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Carb question on: March 30, 2007, 07:09:19 PM
I read this post and have a question,

If you want to lose fat and build muscle...if you are over 15%bf, do 4-5 low/no carb days and then one very high carb day (refeed, that means ONLY carbs, or very low protein added)

4-5 low/no carb...what is considered a low carb? and what do you eat instead of carbs? what are they replaced with?

one very high carb day (refeed, that means ONLY carbs, or vey low protein) What does refeed mean? What kind of carbs can you eat? Are there safe carbs, versus unsafe, very processed carbs? And why very low protein?

thanks
P.

CKD diets generally work best if you're under 15% to start. 
Isocaloric, such as the Zone would be a good choice to get you there.

No.  You do not need to supplement a regular diet at all.

There was a recent study that implicates Multi-Vitamins with various health problems and a Greater Death Risk, notably a shortening of lifespan.  Further studies are coming as a result.  Seems to be pretty interesting.


Vitamin supplements linked to early death

28th February 2007, 9:45 WST


 

 
Millions of people who take antioxidant supplements such as beta carotene and vitamins A and E may be putting their lives at risk rather than improving their health, according to a major review.
   
And a separate study has warned using supplements and complementary medicines to boost fertility may have the opposite effect.
   
Danish researchers suspect that by eliminating harmful free radicals in the body, anti-oxidants might interfere with essential defensive mechanisms and cause toxic reactions.
   
Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association, doctors from Copenhagen University Hospital warn their findings contradict claims that anti-oxidant supplements improve health.
   
Their analysis of several studies into the effects of the supplements found vitamin A products increased the risk of death 16 per cent, while beta carotene and vitamin E increased the risk of death by 7 per cent and 4 per cent respectively.
 
But they said the jury was still out on whether vitamin C had a positive or negative effect on life expectancy
   
“Considering that 80-160 million people in North America and Europe consume these supplements, the public health consequences may be substantial,” the researchers warned. “Beta carotene, vitamin A and vitamin E, given singly or combined with other anti-oxidant supplements significantly increase mortality.”
   
Complementary Healthcare Council executive director Tony Lewis said it would review the findings but it appeared the research was based on high-level dosages not allowed in Australia.
   
“In Australia these products are regulated as medicines, so there are tight controls. The findings might not have the same relevance for us as for others,” he said.
   
In another shock finding, Australian fertility experts believe couples may actually be reducing their chances of having a baby by taking multivitamins and herbs.
   
Writing in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, they warn couples trying to have a baby to make sure they tell their doctor if they are taking alternative remedies because they can reduce the chances of conceiving.
   
Researcher Marcin Stankiewicz, from the Flinders Medical Centre, said he did not want to deter couples from using alternative therapies but it was important to document their use so doctors could study the effects on conception.
   
Dr Roger Hart, a reproductive medicine specialist at the University of WA and medical director of the Fertility Specialists of WA, said while the value of taking folate before conception to prevent birth defects was well known, the benefits of other complementary medicines remained unproved.


We've been over this one before.


The report relates only to synthetic supplements and not to fruits and vegetables in everyday diets which are natural and contain less concentrated levels of antioxidants, said the study from the Centre for Clinical Intervention Research at Denmark's Copenhagen University Hospital.

It said the increased death risk is about 5 per cent higher than those not given supplements and that figure is probably conservative.  It was reported the study found Vitamin A was the worst offender, raising the death risk by 17 per cent.

The finding drew fire from critics who said it was flawed and based largely on studies of people who were already chronically ill before they were treated with the supplements.

While the review did not pinpoint any biochemical mechanism that may be behind the increased death risk, it may be that "by eliminating free radicals from our organism, we interfere with some essential defensive mechanisms," the study concluded.

Antioxidants are believed to fight free radicals, atoms or groups of atoms formed in such a way that they can cause cell damage.

"Beta carotene, vitamin A, and vitamin E given singly or combined with other antioxidant supplements significantly increase mortality," the study found.

It also found no evidence that vitamin C increases longevity and though selenium tended to reduce mortality, more research is needed on that topic.

Balz Frei, director of the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, said the study and the data studied are both flawed because more than two-thirds of the previous research that was examined involved people with heart disease, cancer or other risks who were being treated to see if the supplements worked.

"This kind of approach does not work," he said. "Over the years it has become clear from these clinical trials that antioxidants don't work in disease treatment."

The Complementary Healthcare Council (CHC), which represents the industry in Australia, said the results were based on old data and included trials which allowed doses of vitamins not accepted in Australia.

CHC executive director Tony Lewis would not comment on the study's claims but said the evidence was "weak".


7921  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: cutting question on: March 29, 2007, 07:19:09 PM
why is it that i only see results sparaticly?  like im cutting right now, and i stay to my diet and see nothing for weeks. then out of no where i wake up and its like 5lbs of fat just melted off me.  then i keep on my diet see no little changes at all, then another huge difference like month later...is it supposed to be like that?

Im not going by the scale, but by noticeable differences in the way my core feels and looks, and the cuts inbetween muscles

Very common, even moreso in women.
7922  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: calorie question on: March 29, 2007, 07:14:43 PM

the Stepmill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! discuss.

The only problem I have with the stepmill is the steps aren't deep enough to get your whole foot on, so then you end up either on your toes/balls of your feet, which hit the calves a lot OR stepping on it bow-legged.
7924  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Ezikiel Bread on: March 28, 2007, 12:43:24 PM
I know Cutler swears by this stuff does anybody have any macronutrient breakdown of a serving. 

I usually NEVER eat bread while dieting for a show (gluten=water retention) however this stuff might be great and easy to prepare.

Are you going to make your own or buy it?

It's usually found in the freezer case in the natural / organic section.

7925  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Prohormones? on: March 27, 2007, 09:08:20 PM
wrong info given by a moderator priceless!!!! actually the first generation prohormones were pulled from shelves jan 20- 2005. that was the last day to be able to buy them legally.  but they released the best stuff after the ban such as superdrol and ergomax and halodrol-50. so you can still buy these legally and they are way better than any of the 1st generation prohormones.

The ban WAS in '04 and (perhaps the "the last day to buy") was in Jan. '05.  They did the same thing with ephedra.  Superdrol is not a prohormone.  It is a steroid, designer steroid, prosteroid - whatever you want to call it.   It's an active compound, not like a prohormone which needs to convert to the active compound within the body first.  It has been discontinued by the manufactuer and it's also illegal to sell. Ergomax and Halodrol-50 have also been discontinued.


you can still buy these legally

Let us know where.
