Hannah Espada: So if your weight loss plateaus from the extracellular matrix not shrinking as fast as the adipose tissue is shrinking, how can we make the extracellular matrix shrink at the same rate so as not to cause stress? Or did I understand what he said wrong?

Chris Sartoretto: Cool video, keep it up!

stillett12343: I turned in to a big guy through many ways, not my fault, and few ways that could be due to age. But at the end of the day, what aggravates me, is that. People want me to go to the gym!, I always was obsessed with going to the gym. i even joined government organisations example: "(army)(Royal Marines)(USMC)".
I took on challenges to have that diet that worked for me to make it through the day at the pace i lived to train. My point again, is that. I go to the gym. I see people i knew who claim they support me. they do not need to support me. but by claiming, or ignoring the fact i used to know them, puts me in that position of pure imagination. before me is people that live to change memories. to live a life of imagination, there for there is no real support, and i get overpowered by peoples support to want me to not be obsessive in going to the gym., not wanting me to be fit and healthy. yet. When i go to the Gym, Just having the muscle that i gained from the endurance i set about. lets me know i can do what i need to. just without the support. I need to be safe, need to

MIRA KARIM: Incredibly interesting! :)
