1. Gluten Free Beer Brewed With Barley.
You guys kick ass… I’ll leave it at that. My question is about Omission Beer. I know gluten free beer is not the ideal beverage as far as low carb and grain free goes but once in a while a girl just needs a cold one after a big mountain bike ride. Nor Cal Margs don’t always cut it. I’ve generally stuck to beers brewed with rice or sorghum but Omission Beer is the first gluten free beer I’ve ever had that actually tastes like a real beer. Their IPA is the hoppy, bitter, liquid gold that I’ve been missing for the past 11 years of life without gluten. And the reason it’s so damn good is because they brew it with barley and then somehow magically remove the gluten. Pretty sure they do it by filtering the brew through a unicorn horn.
Question: If there’s no gluten left in the beer, do you see any reason drinking an Omission gluten free beer brewed with barley would be any worse than drinking a gluten free beer brewed with rice/sorghum (in spite of the fact that it’s delicious which makes me want another)?
Bonus question: Aside from the carbs in gluten free beer, are there any additional reasons to avoid it (lectins, nasties, etc.)?
Thanks a heap for taking the time to answer this as I’m sure you understand the extreme urgency and importance of this potentially life altering subject.
2. Mind Altering Paleo Options
Rob and Greg,
I figure the title is right up you’re alley with all the talk of blow and hookers that goes on.
I really enjoy my after work drink but sadly it usually turns into the plural of drink anytime I imbibe. I don’t plan on quitting alcohol altogether because then nobody would hang out with me. I would however like to find a good relaxing alternative to replace my after work drink. I though of pipe smoking but that doesn’t seem like a habit to pick up when you’re cultivating health. Any recommendations on Paleo friendly options that don’t have negative effects from regular use. Herbal intoxicants, magic brews, or is the NorCal Margarita my only option? Thanks for all you do and keeping it light.
3. Lipolysis for muscle hypertrophy?
I was wondering this morning if lipolysis is ever used for muscle hypertrophy?
As I understand (in the context of food), to build muscle we need to consume more energy then we expend. But would/could the body utilize body-fat for this purpose, or do you know if it simply down regulates muscle growth if energy is kept at maintenance levels despite available body-fat?
4. fats post workout
Hey Rob, loved listening to you on Joe Rogans Podcast, so i decided to give your podcasts a shot..So far i love them and my clients thank you. Im a personal trainer and am curious about the consumption of healthy fats post workout after crossfit and after a 5 by 5 workout.( bench, rows, squats, deadlifts) Thanks for everything you guys do.
Ps you and greg need to get back with Joe Rogan
5. Playing catch up
I wanna start off by saying thank you guys for all the work you do. You really change lives; you’ve saved my parents from a lot of needless suffering and I couldn’t thank you enough.
So my question starts about 3 years ago, when I first started working out. I was 21 at the time and doing some routines I found on the internet. After six months I noticed my chest really wasn’t seeing much progress relative to everything else. I had really only done football before hand and maybe did a whole whopping 100 push ups before I started working out. So I thought it’s just undeveloped and things will just get better if I tough it out.
After about a year I start working out with a buddy and he notices I’m lifting my left shoulder during any kind of press, regardless of the type of grip I’m using. He says I should try to stop that, but doing so meant dropping the weight and the hell if I’m gonna take a step backwards. The idiot I was…
A few months after that I started seeing a trainer who also said I should keep my shoulders stable and on the bench but at this point the damage has been done. I start a new program a few months later and the 1st day of the 2nd week I do chest again and say ‘This strain on my should is just way too much, there’s gotta be something wrong’.
So I go to a physiotherapist, I explain the problem, he takes one look at me and knows immediately what the problem is. My lower traps are essentially Steve Rogers before he was Captain America. My shoulder blades stick out like crazy as a result and I’m told to hold off on any kind of chest exercise: press/fly/dip or shoulder press till I get this worked out with Physio, about 3-4 months.
I was told I can go to town on legs and back; but my chest was lagging to begin with. So how the hell am I going to get things even now? Other than the physio I’m doing what kind of exercises/routines should I be doing and what kind should I be doing after recovery to help my chest catch up?
Side note: The fact that this went on for so long and even a trainer didn’t really advise looking into it too much has made me super skeptical about health advice I receive, even if I’m paying for it. Although, I always feel I’m in good hands when listening to you guys.
6. Cheat Days for Getting Ripped as Shit
So I’ve been doing a lot of reading into how to make my body not only a deadly weapon in terms of athletic movements, but also a deadly weapon in terms of looking like a badass. I recently joined a CrossFit gym (sorry) to enter into a community where there will be people to push me physically past what I was doing on my own. Worry not, the programming there tends to be 40 minutes of mobility and strength with maybe ten to fifteen minutes of sweating.
Anyways, I’ve previously lost a lot of weight following Tim Ferriss’s diet from 4HB, and got ahold of “Engineering the Alpha” too. In both books, and in many protocols like the attached GQ article about Chris Evans, the diet guy recommends taking a day per week to go totally apeshit on eating junk food.
What’s your take on this? I know Mat LaLonde wasn’t huge on Tim’s protocol, but it seems like these protocols are all similar, get results, and will help me become a monstrous athlete with the sort of abs ladies fight to eat sushi off of.
Cheers to you both, kind sirs.
Straight up. I think its bullshit. However I have been known to be wrong before.
No one has ever shown me anything that could be considered proof and I really don’t like the ignorant hippies at the health food store and subsequently don’t waste my money on such things.
But…you have shown to be rational and have some cred. So how about it?
