Often times how we recover is just as important as what we do, what we eat or how we diet. Recovery can be the KEY factor to increasing our recovery in various types of training. Crossfit athletes train multiple times a day, bodybuilders once. It's all the same.

 

Here's how to do it in simple terms. Oh, check out my new video on branched chain amino acids.

How do you thyroid, your diet and your training interact?

Why are athletes dealing with all types of hormone issues?

Individual X trains multiple times per week, some times twice per day and they eat a very healthy but low calorie diet. On top of their time at work, they have an above average stress level.  Throw all of this into a pot and you have some tired athlete with high cortisol. They visit their doctor who tells them that they have a hypo-thyroid (slow thyroid) and their Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is very high. As a result, their MD wants to put them on thyroid medication.

Now I'm not a doctor and I don't play one on the internet but I know about hormones and exercise. Let's take a look under the "hood" and why I always recommend a TSH blood test.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is produced by the pituitary gland in you brain that then signals your thyroid, that butterfly sized gland, in your neck to produce both T3 and T4,

If T3 is not converted to T4 your brain will tell your thyroid gland to produce MORE TSH than normal to uptick the T3-T4 conversion.

But why doesn't anyone stop to ask why the T3-T4 conversion is sluggish or less than optimal? 

Why are thyroids burning out?

We all experience stress.  Finding ways to deal with it, overcome it and transform it can help improve your well-being. It is a fact that stress contributes to headaches, ulcers, and sleep issues. Often your stress is an opportunity to learn and grow. When you are in it, it can be tough. When you can learn from it and move past it, it is truly miraculous!

When you are stressed it is often over a situation, person, diagnosis, medical condition, body pain, etc. There are many chemical reactions that can happen in your body.  One of the most well-known is the increase of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone.  The overload of hormones that can happen as a result of stress have been shown to have far-reaching effects.  Unfortunately these effects have shown to contribute to a host of illnesses.

The stressful state seems impossible to get out of because it is over something that you just can not stop thinking about. The emotional attachment is monumental. You have lost control.

You can find ways to temporarily deal with it.  Going for a walk, talking with a friend, taking a bath, taking deep breaths, or surrounding yourself with something or someone you love are all ways we cope.

When you experience stress, you experience a state of disarray in both your body and mind. Being that your body and mind are connected, you can indeed help your body by working at the level of the mind.  Once the mind is ‘corrected’ you can then start to see how that impacts the rest of your body. One of the main processes that I use in my own life and with my clients, takes the negative impacts of stress and flips it on it’s head.

This article was originally published on September 3, 2009 and expired on March 3, 2010. It is provided here for archival purposes and may contain dated information.

Any diet will do? Not if you want to lose fat instead of muscle. Not if you want to lower your triglyceride levels so you'll be less likely to develop diabetes and heart disease. Not if you want to avoid cravings that tempt you to cheat on your diet. And not if you want to keep the weight off long-term.

"Our latest study shows you have a better chance of achieving all these goals if you follow a diet that is moderately high in protein," said Donald Layman, a University of Illinois professor emeritus of nutrition. The research was published in the March Journal of Nutrition.

Layman's new study followed the weight-loss efforts of 130 persons at two sites, the U of I and Penn State University, during 4 months of active weight loss and 8 months of maintenance. Two previous studies had looked at short-term weight loss; this one was designed to look at long-term effects, he said.

Although both plans were equal in calories, half the group followed a moderate-protein diet (40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, 30% fat) while the other followed a diet based on USDA's food-guide pyramid (55% carbohydrates, 15% protein, 15% fat).

"Persons in the first group ate twice the amount of protein as the second group," said Layman.

And the difference in protein made all the difference in improved body composition and body lipids, he said.

Although the amount of weight lost in both groups was similar, at 4 months participants in the protein group had lost 22 percent more body fat than members of the food-pyramid group. At 12 months, the moderate-protein dieters had lost 38 percent more body fat.

"The additional protein helped dieters preserve muscle. That's important for long-term weight loss because muscle burns calories--if you lose muscle, and you used to be able to consume 2,000 calories without gaining weight, you'll find that now you can only eat, say, 1,800 calories without weight gain," he said.

What were the effects on lipids? Although at 4 months the food-guide pyramid appeared to be more effective in lowering LDL and total cholesterol levels, at 12 months LDL levels came back up until both diets were equally effective, Layman said.

"This is the first study to show that short-term changes in LDL cholesterol are not maintained with long-term weight loss. Most scientists believe that high cholesterol is more a factor of genetics than of diet," he said.

But the moderate-protein diet had by far the bigger effect on lowering triglycerides, and that lasted as long as individuals remained on the diet, he said.

"Of the two types of lipid problems, high triglycerides pose a greater risk for heart disease. Approximately twice as many people have high triglycerides, and people with this condition are approximately four times more likely to die from heart disease," the scientist said.

To ensure compliance, participants met every week for weigh-ins and nutrition instruction. "We taught participants how to follow their diet, how to grocery shop, and how to prepare the meals. They also measured everything they ate three days a week," he said.

"Studies that report there is no difference among diets also report that subjects were not carefully following the diets," said Layman. "It's very important to realize the difference between diet compliance and diet effectiveness."

The protein diet was easier to follow and maintain long-term, with 64 percent of the moderate-protein dieters completing the study compared to 45 percent of dieters using the high-carbohydrate diet, Layman said.

"Subjects on the moderate-protein diet reported that they weren't as interested in snacks or desserts, and they didn't have food cravings. When you eat protein, you feel full longer," he said.

Average weight loss for the protein group was 23 percent higher than the food-pyramid group, with 31 percent of "completers" in the protein group losing more of than 10 percent of their initial body weight versus 21 percent of the food-pyramid group.

Co-authors of the study are Ellen Evans of the U of I Department of Kinesiology and Public Health; Donna Erickson, Jennifer Seyler, and Judy Weber of the U of I Department of Food Science and Human

Nutrition; and Deborah Bagshaw, Amy Griel, Tricia Psota, and Penny Kris-Etherton of The Pennsylvania State University Department of Nutritional Sciences. It was funded by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, The Beef Checkoff, and Kraft Foods.

Here's a great article from Dr.Brad on muscle growth

Yeah so some of the traditional guidelines that have been discussed we’ve now started to learn they’re not quite as clear as we, as had been promoted. So one of my main hobby horses has been repetition ranges, or loading zones. Looking at the typical hypertrophy loading zone repetition ranges always been thought to be 6 to 12 reps and to maximize muscle you’d want to train in this bodybuilding style of training – repetition loading. And what we’re learning, and I’ve carried out now multiple studies on this topic, is that really training through a wide spectrum of repetition ranges provided there is sufficient volume within the loading zones, can produce substantial hypertrophy and rather similar effects on muscle. And that includes very light weights.

One of my studies, actually a couple, have looked at the 25 to 35 repetition range which is very, as you know, very high. And often promoted or preached that it as insufficient to build muscle. And what we’re finding out is that you get robust hypertrophy through a spectrum of loading ranges. And there is though some speculation now that I have that combining these loading zones actually can maximize the response. That having some lower repetition zone training, moderate repetition zone training, and high repetition zone training in certain, we don’t know the exact mix.

Maybe having a theoretically, I would say having more of the 6 to 12 rep is using that as your base, and adding in your higher and lower repetition during training would ultimately maximize the hypertrophic response. So to me that was a biggie. And this is not just in newbies. My research generally is carried out in trained, all trained individuals that have, usually on the average several years training experience, two to three days a week of training for several years. So these aren’t bodybuilders per say, but they are well-trained subjects who aren’t just getting newbie gains. And that was originally hypothesized by me. I tend to prove myself wrong in my hypotheses a lot because I had thought, when I saw some of the earlier research on, recent research by Stu Phillips Lab has done some, as well as some other groups, showing that this high rep training can actually promote roughly equal muscle growth.

I thought it was newbie gains. I figured that it was just these guys would, they can get jacked on cardio if they haven’t done anything. And ultimately in well-trained subjects we’re finding that’s not the case. That they can get very robust growth from high rep training. So certainly that’s one to know.
