Sometimes it's not that complicated.

The data on these things are EXTREMELY clear.... Sometimes they help, sometimes they don't.
That's really the major point of @unplugged_book , not to bash fit technologies entirely, but to make sure people realize both outcomes are common, so prepare appropriately.
Excellent advice from @alexqmaclin for those ever needing to measure food intake. • from @alexqmaclin - The other day I posted about why "how much food you eat" matters. But how do you figure out how much food you're eating and what's the *best* way?
Some of the ways I recommend are:
⚖️using a food scale
👋using hands, measuring cups, or meal prep containers
👀eyeballing or taking a pictures of meals
First off, the *best* way is what you can do most consistently on a daily basis. If you're not ready, willing and able to use a food scale regularly, do you think it will work for you? No.
Second, you should understand that all of these methods *can* work but how potentially well they work is different because they have different precision. More precise methods have the potential to help you get faster and usually better results but they often aren't as convenient as a tradeoff.
Precision refers to how repeatable the measurement will be. Let's say I want to measure some chicken and the scale reads 100g. Next time I measure some chicken, I can put enough on the scale to read 100g almost every time. It's precise. This doesn't necessarily mean I have a true 100g (accuracy) and that doesn't matter because if I want to lose weight, I just have to say 'maybe I need to eat 80g now' and I can weigh out the amount and get it every time.
If I use something like measuring cups or my hands, there's more room for error. For example, food can be shaped and fit differently in the hands or cups and the precision decreases. They can still work though because I can just say, 'how about I use a smaller cup or half a hand serving next time'.
Eyeballing amounts on a plate can even work but it's the least precise. You can still make it work if you are honest with yourself, pay attention and truly change how much you are putting on your plate.
The factor for success is still consistency. Choose the most precise method that you can do the most consistently. I usually use a food scale but if I want a break or don't have one with me, I use less precise ways. I'm still measuring quantity though. That's the point!

Muscle fiber size reduced by 40% after 5 days of an ultra-endurance race at altitude.
Fascinating study by my former Doc student classmates @adamkonopka1 and @christopher.wolff
from @kevinmurachphd - A big shout out to @adamkonopka1 and @christopher.wolff and @robvmusci for publishing a very interesting case study in JAP! They looked at muscle energetics and morphology in a trained athlete before and after a multi-day ultra-endurance race at altitude. This study had sooo much cool data, but what stuck out to me was the ~40% reduction in muscle fiber size after 5 days and ~580 km of racing (CTR, white is pre black is post). They attributed this to robust glycogen depletion and associated water loss from muscle cells, which makes the most sense. There were ~65% more central nuclei after the race as well, though. Could it be fiber splitting too!?!😀 My friends do the coolest research. Well done, fellas.

Chapter 2 of @thebodyofknowledge was all about @thekennykane . Hear him tell his fascinating story of transitioning from martial arts, to a professional career as a stand-up comedian (including an amazing/hilarious story of sharing the stage with a comedy legend), to owning one of the 1st ever CrossFit gyms, and how he used all of that to develop his uniquely profound philosophy he calls “context”. #thebodyofknowledge #comedy #martialarts #crossfit #podcast #health #exercise
Article I wrote for @trainheroic is up now on their blog.

Incredible gift from @powerspeedendurance and @iamunscared
Go to the website, do the quick test, and get a CUSTOMIZED breathing program.
If you've been considering exploring this breathing stuff, you'll never find a better chance. ------------------------------------------------- Regrann from @iamunscared - An individualized approach to breath training. Understand principles, understand your needs, apply. •
The BREATH ASSESSMENT is for anyone from elite athletes to elder immobile populations. In our trials (with a minimum of 10 minutes per day) we have observed:
Better warm up times (finding sweet spot sooner)
Better tissue response to mobility
Lower respiration rate
Better immune system

My lady keeps breaking my heart with these.
I open the foil expecting meaty, cheesy, breany, sour creamy wonderfulness...and I get this.... Swiss chard filled with broccoli sprouts, kimchi, hummus, radishes, chicken, garlic fluff, bell peppers, and cucumber. "Super yummy and super good for you!" She says. Half right I say... BUT I decided a long time ago that food doesn't get a magical pass with me. Just like waking up to an alarm, going to work everyday, grading papers, etc. There a certain sacrifices we elect to get the outcome we want. Why should food be exempt from that list?
OCCASIONALLY, I'll pick what I want over what's best for me, not more often then I choose to take a day off work, or sleep in.
