Fitness Fueling: Gender-Specific Nutrition Concerns.

  • So instead of 3 big bowls of Haagen-Dazs per day, I should have smaller amounts every 2 hours based on my activity.  This is going to be great for flavor selection.  Thanks Mike.

  • I’m open minded about diets, I just go with what works. I’ve been on the ketogenic diet for about 7 months and I’m at 9% body fat. I’ve noticed a huge improvement on my health physically and mentally. I don’t think this guy knows a lot about the keto diet the carb ratio is dependent on each person. Under 20 grams is the rule but some people can go up to 50. Also green leafy vegetable have a low glycemic index and won’t spike insulin that’s a weird point to make. People like to stay stuck in the past. I still hear people taking advice from Arnolds dieting methods which obviously have results for some people but their might be other methods that are more efficient. I would like to see a study done on the two diets on average people to see what yields the most results.

  • pro cyclists during tours eat different portions of carbs/fats/proteins depending on what the stage is like.

    so this whole thing is fucking useless, you don’t need to eat the same all the time, pro’s eat depending on what the race requires.

  • Your husband is a dogshit cyclist we get it damn lady we heard you the first ten times shut the fuck up and tell me what I have to eat

  • “Let me tell you somethin!” She did a Firemarshall Bill!  “Suppose your out on your bike and you’re about to bonk” I think the content is great but in terms of public speaking, how many times does she say “ummm” or “uhhh” or lip smack in the microphone, Right? She is not really funny in attempt to characterizing cyclist habits but it was funny when she planted FM Bill in my head. It is obvious by her comments that she is not a cyclist because of her comments the beat down she puts on her husbands routine. Most cyclist are pretty smart individuals, yes we are obsessive but that also makes us successful, and we are competitive, health minded individuals. One critique may be funny but don’t fill your presentation with critiques and “husband comparisons”.

  • “Hold the door for strangers, smile and say hello” thats just creepy and will most likely give you more stress from rude people lol

  • Important to knowlege about nutrition for cyclists-how to calculate energy needs to fuel your cycling goals on and off the bike, your body needs before,during and after yuor ride

  • I kinda chuckled when you said rides over an hour are long rides… My daily rides are longer then that

    with the hydration section, you made it so much more “complex” with the conversions, since water has like the perfect conversion rate to kg. (just chill the water to 4 degrees, you nerd ;))


  • @Firas: je te suggère de te pencher sur les travaux d’André Gernez à propos du jeûne et de la guérison de cancers et maladies dégénératives. C’était le médecin le plus décoré de France. Il a notamment traité le lien entre la croyance en Dieu en bas âge qui pourrait aider à prévenir la maladie d’alzheimer. Très intéressant. J’ai pleins de références de la sorte si jamais cela t’intéresse. Que dieu te bénisse.
    سلام عليكم

  • I think he doesn’t like keto,because he trains athletes, it’s a different story for us average joes, we can do keto and have enough good energy, even Kevin lee ufc fighter does keto and el cucuy I think ��������

  • Love your vidoes so much you are so inspirational and really informative. I love the fact you are so real and raw, Thanks so much x

  • All the “stuff” out there about nutrition, this one is by far the best I have ever seen. She breaks this down, as if it was her thesis project. With actual science, not the newest diet fad.

  • Dolce does things so that the basics are pretty much in place, which is why it works…Just his explanations of WHY he does them are flawed.

    For example, the cardio zone part. You’re looking for caloric expenditure when it comes to fat loss, not which fuel source you’re tapping into during the cardio method. If at the end of the day, you’re not in a caloric deficit it doesn’t matter if you were using fat as fuel during your fasted cardio in the morning.

  • I have huge respect for you Firas, but this broscience in mma is highly annoying. A lot of this information is either highly outdated, anecdotal or lacking evidence to support it. The most common thing we see with fighters is them following what has worked for one person before and not something that is subject to intensive studies. You sir are a wizard, but nonetheless more education needs to be brought into MMA.

  • two heaping spoonfuls of Nutella is like ROCKET FUEL! I am sooooo in caloric deficit…. yikes…. I ride approx 2.5 hours on a 40 mile run 3 times a week….. and I’m not hungry right away… it’s many hours later..

  • Maybe the YouTubes has spoiled me, but 5 minutes in and you still haven’t delivered any content. That’s an eternity in internet time. This is intended to be constructive criticism… so, solutions = Edit it down and put the speaker info in the description or put bookmarks in a pinned comment.

  • according to the intermittent fasting theory, your body activates it’s rest & digest mechanisms when you stop eating. your body also releases growth hormones and repairs your body while it’s not eating. when you eat, it breaks the fasting cycle and that’s what makes you fat. i dont agree that intermittent fasting is bad.

  • “deliver vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals….” Why does she go on to recommend oil, meat, ben and jerry, wine, cream cheese, eggs, pork… which contain non of these? Saddening.

  • Watched the first 10 mins and was banging my head against the wall. So out of touch on research on carbs and keto and insulin. God save us from such garbage

  • At the end of the day, your macros matter most and whole foods are a means to an end. I don’t think chemical vs natural is a good argument, there are plenty of natural substances like poisons that may be toxic for you while there are lab-produced compounds, such as penicillin that can be beneficial for you.

  • Ofcourse any fluid counts.. eaven cookies have some water… food has quite alot water in it. When u break down the food its like light povder.. rest of the wayght is mostly water. Water on this planet is everywere.. everithing that is organic contains food.
