Bimagrumab: an elusive potential inhibitor of myostatin (the muscle blocker)

[Patron link]

Miragrebon: a beta-3 agonist, fueler of BAT thermogenesis

Tl;dr: both work. In addition to tirzepatide (or its subordinate, semaglutide), exercise in a [poly]pill may have arrived…… including UPF-free #eTRF if you are so inclined or striving for #Optimal™ jk  

Tl;dr: we weren’t wrong about myostatin, we just didn’t have the right tools to influence it. Now, we do.

Next time someone says you can’t gain muscle and lose fat at the same time, here’s another example proving them wrrrongo (pronounced with a rolling “r”):

Think of DHA like ball bearings

Suggested pre-reading: Vegetable oil fatty acids are not essential (P<0.05) (includes disclaimers)

In brief, the recommendations for essential fatty acids (EFAs) are based on animal models, some medium-quality evidence, and wishy washy endpoints. Eg, at what point does dermatitis become clinically severe enough to deem EFA deficiency, and can this be replicated in a double blind randomized controlled crossover trial? What are the control groups?

Death cycles of bodybuilders | The poor, misunderstood calorie

RIP Cedric McMillan (2017-2022, age 44)

[Patron link]

Disclaimer: this is interwebz resurch; neither RCTs nor my wheelhouse, really. It could all be lies. This opinion piece is not restricted to dead athletes or bodybuilders, but also a commentary on performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) in general. It’s a complicated topic.

Stay tuned at the end for notable exceptions, black swans. It’s clearly not all dose and/or duration.

#eTRF 2022 | The poor, misunderstood calorie

Yo! How you gonna design a weight loss study comparing two interventions but initiate the most rigorous ISOCALORIC reinforcements – regular counseling, phone calls, emails, etc., etc., to all but ensure no difference in weight loss? Yes, because CICO (don’t @ me).

Early Time-Restricted Feeding for the Prevention of ...

And please don’t forget all the recent studies on #eTRF. Eg, Randomized controlled trial for time-restricted eating in healthy volunteers without obesity (Xie et al., 2022). #eTRF vs. skipping breakfast, #eTRF came out on top.

The new one is calorie restricted (both arms): TRF vs. non-TRF.

Tirzepa-what now?? | The poor, misunderstood calorie

And an old school tinkering “biohack” (if you can call it that; based on speculation, etc) (see below)

[Patron link]

I shoulda saved “what a time to be alive!” for this post. You thought semaglutide was the greatest progress in managing obesity, right? Say hello to tirzepatide.

Both of these are once weekly subcutaneous injections. Semaglutide is available as a significantly cheaper generic; tirzepatide not yet (to my knowledge).

Weird-looking molecule,,, I bet it tickles more than one receptor…

The next phase of CIM/EBM debauchery

Skip this section if you’re a seasoned reader:

[Patron link]

CIM (carb-insulin model of obesity) = carbs caused the obesity epidemic, they make you fat, and the cure to everything is keto. There’s a large overlap with the anti-seed oil movement and they’ve been actively shifting away from carbs to UPF (ultra-processed foods) and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), rightfully so. Nothing against fructose in particular, but HFCS is a good marker of UPF. The low fat Dietary Guidelines cause food addiction (to carbs/sugar).

EBM (energy balance of obesity): eat less, move more; CICO (calories in, calories out); obesity is caused by eating too much; the Dietary Guidelines didn’t cause obesity because no one followed them. 

TBM (The Bill-Man): potato chips. Passive overeating of UPF for whatever reason. Boredom? Oral fixation? Tbh (to be honest), Idk (I don’t know).
