Returning to Full Exercise after Total Hip Replacement (THR) – A Personal Trainers Research and Recommendations

0 Comment

First of all, I am not qualified in sports therapy or physiotherapy. The relevance of this is questionable to the point of this article, though I thought that I best clear it up before the spam and comments undoubtedly flood in, as they do to so many interested scholars and those with genuine compassion for a condition.

Caffeine: Biochemistry Behind the Buzz

0 Comment

Almost every other post online starts with this sentence so why don’t I go ahead and start it the same way: Caffeine is the most widely consumed drug worldwide as it is mostly legal and unregulated by almost all governments worldwide!.. Yada, yada.. We all know this crap. What I want to get into is why caffeine […]

The Government and The Farmers

0 Comment

Why does the government advise a healthy diet? This government intervention aims to give everyone a basic education on how to live healthily, not only for the benefit of our own personal quality of life because a healthy person is usually a happy person but also, which is more likely an influence for our parliament, […]

7) Don’t get thirsty Being the humans that we are, or I hope we all are, we are made of 50-70% water. The exact percentage varies depending on how hydrated we are, our muscle and fat proportions (water can’t mix with fat, so more fat = less % of water) but this water largely makes […]

In Active Fat: Causing Heart Disease I spoke about how high levels of Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) increase cholesterol build up inside the walls of our arteries. This is known as atherosclerosis and leads to a large inconvenient […]

Fatty Acid Synthesis

0 Comment

Although we know that lipids stored within the body are mostly done so as Triglycerides (TAG’S), to form TAG’s we must first have fatty acids and glycerol. In this post we will be looking at how excess Acetyl Co-enzyme A (ACoA) is converted into fatty acids in order to be stored in the body as […]

Beta Oxidation: Using Fat For Fuel

0 Comment

No. This is not a post of diet advice telling you about pills and fads and ‘secret tricks’ to lose weight. If that’s what your looking for then I would recommend reading my other posts even more! We are instead looking at the metabolic pathway that leads to the use of stored fats (lipids) as […]

The Kidneys: Regulating Water and Waste

0 Comment

Although being such tiny little things, the kidneys have a monumental task within the body removing waste products such as excess water, urea, oxidants and salts. They have a much larger role of filtering the blood of toxins than does the excretion of feces, so it’s more of a big deal than people think making […]
