Interesting article Mario Deal I just want to point out two things.
1: This article outlines how the contestants on “The Biggest Loser” were rather literally starved and fed intense drugs to induce their weight loss. To the degree that they have suffered severe organ damage as a result. It’s horrific and something that I thought you may wish to be aware of in light of your using said show as an object lesson in your piece.
2: Glycogen/glucose storage in ones muscle masses can actually be enhanced by high intensity weight training, as is laid out in this article.
Thanks for the fascinating and thought provoking article Mario.
