Entry #672

I was supposed to babysit my nieces today. But I had to train, so I booted them in the backyard and made them work like dogs with me. All told, it was about an hour and a half of punching bag work. I even taught them how to hit decently. They weren't bad for 4 and 5-year olds, I suppose. I first met them only last month, and I told them my name was Batman.

I'm planning on trying the Anabolic Diet soon. The book itself is poorly written and isn't enough to convince me. Rather, I've been interested in several studies depicting increases in lean body mass on low-carb routes. This is an ambiguous delineation, however. "Lean body mass" is a percentage, so it's not necessarily the same as actual muscle growth. Lean body mass can increase while losing muscle mass if the ratio of fat catabolism exceeds that rate. I will be cautious but open-minded.


  1. My single caution with the AD is to try to avoid binging on the weekends (or, if you follow the NHE approach, every 3rd/4th day); I don't know if it would actually have any effect given your normal food intake, but I found that I felt a hell of a lot better on the refeed if I restrained myself.Speaking of NHE (Natural Hormone Enhancement), I'm told the book for it is much better-written, though since I never figured out a way of buying it, I don't know for sure.

  2. Are you still on it? Did you notice any difference?
