All metabolic pathways share some common features and grasping the chemical logic behind them will lend to the understanding of many different pathways. If you haven’t already read my Intro into Metabolism, I highly recommend that you do (things will make a lot more sense). As a reminder, here’s the key points to think about

The term “metabolism” is, mistakenly, much too open for interpretation. It has become somewhat of a buzzword, haphazardly thrown around, resulting in further misuse and confusion of a critical topic in nutrition. Supplement companies boast of their products “speeding” metabolism up and trainers assert specific exercises can influence it. Is there any truth to this?
Alcohol’s seemingly central role in a vast array of settings makes it common topic of discussion in nutrition. In my practice, I often get asked questions pertaining to alcohol consumption phrased in a way to coax the desired answer by the patient or client. For example, “What if I only had x amount, just on
Part 1 covered the some of the mechanisms of action by which muscle growth is mediated. In this post, how these mechanisms are influenced into a favorable state for muscle growth, by nutritional means, will be analyzed. Intra-Workout Nutrition Recommendations: Highly-Branched Cylic Dextrin & Protein Hydrolysates Before exploring an intra-workout nutrition protocol , the mode
An excerpt from my research paper: Influencing the Mammalian Target of Rapamycin Complex 1 by Mitigating the Catabolic Effects of AMP-Activated Protein Kinase Activity to Optimize Muscle Protein Synthesis: A Research-Based Approach Towards Intra- and Post-Workout Nutritional Recommendations (Part 1) Quite the lengthy title, I know. I hope the language used does not come off
