Just started, and want to know some things!!!
« on: May 05, 2012, 12:03:14 AM »
Because Im doing the caveman diet while training, would I be able to take protein shakes ? Or would it be best not to?  And also do you loose muscle while your on this diet?

as a reply to your muscle loss question, loss of muscle due to inadequate nutrition is called Kyphosis. As long as you make sure you get a variety of nutrient and don't just eat the same 5-10 things every day, every week you should be fine. Protein supplements are a good way to make sure you have the necessary protein, if you want some tips on diet and nutrition visit exrx.net. They have all sorts of information on all kinds of parts of healthy living, all for free.

Hope this helps!

Are you sure that Kyphosis isn't a plain simple deformation of the vertebra?

prize to lilnicki and jana, Ketosis is more of what I was talking about. Sorry, I was typing this in the middle of seeing some patients for spine work, my brain is not quite what it used to be. Nice catch though everyone!
