Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Makes sense. You have a high metabolism. People like you have it easy at losing weight.
High metabolism? He considers a high carb diet 150 g CHO. That isn't very 'high'... Metabolism is based off of chemical reactions. There's anabolism and catabolism. Your metabolic rate, which is what you are refering to, is largely based off of metabolic conditioning. Judging by the way he/she is conditioning their metabolic rate, 150 g CHO being considered 'high carb' does not = high metabolism.
Calves are also reliant on genetics, for the most part. You'll see top level IFBB bodybuilders (cough - Dennis Wolf - cough) with horrible calves despite putting in insane amounts of work.
