Hello! I specifically remember Maria Emmerich (Check out her books) mention that glycinate is the best option, with it being more expensive - that’s another hint that it is better (unfortunately, the way the keto cookie crumbles).
Magnesium glycinate offers the best bioavailability out of all of the other magnesium derivatives. It is a chelated form and so bound to an amino acid which makes absorption easier. Citrate however is around 15%??? I think. It also can have a laxative effect which isn’t too great (so watch out for that).
The same with oxide, even if it can be easily absorbed doesn’t mean you get the entire amount of magnesium :-) Hope this helps.
THANK YOU! This is a lovely, lovely message.
I got this when I was having a bad say and it made me feel SO happy, so thank you for spreading your kindness to me - it’s lovely.
You are an absolute Goddess! Congratulations!! :D
I’ll be sure to come follow your badass journey :-) - Thank you again, beautiful!
<3!! :D squattallica
It could be a whole number of things, stress (hormones), adapting, your body changing, but just keep going.
I used to and I still like do guesstimates. Anywhere from 1300-1500 and then some more if I exercise :-).
The calorie hypothesis doesn’t seem to determine my loss though.
doitright-thistime - Hello! First of all congratulations on the running! I’m also so happy to hear you’re enjoying it.
I think it’s so important first of all to try to understand our bodies in relation to stress, rest, exercise. Exercise isn’t the only thing that can tire our bodies out. Stress certainly can, a hard day at work can, a restless or poor nights sleep can, or simply just having a bad day can!
We need to work out if we’re rested enough and that doesn’t just mean limbs, it’s the entire body. Having sore muscles also isn’t an indicator of whether or not you’re rested enough. For example you may run a 15km, not be sore but because your central nervous system isn’t rested enough then you may not be able to do your usual max on your overhead press (even though you don’t use your arms to run).
It’s gonna be normal that you have good days and bad days, even with exercise performance.
So don’t be worrying yourself over something that’s so natural, consciously or subconsciously. It’s important to be aware of why you’re body might be doing what it’s doing and to love it unconditionally for allowing you to even get outside. Workouts and success are not one steep curve, it’s all over the place and it’s important to remember we have bad days so we can appreciate the good ones :) (you’re still lapping everyone on the couch)
My glasses are so wonderful ++ Thank you :)
