Carb intake can serve multiple goals. It may be replenishing muscle for past use, it may also be storing for future use. It's all rather meaningless, what matters is the big picture, in other words your average intake over a longer period. Your body is perfectly capable of maintaining energy levels, whether it's in muscle, blood or the liver. Just make sure you stay fed throughout the day, and that the food you digest comes with the nutrients it's supposed to have.

Anti-oxidants mostly. Herbal teas contain many phytochemicals with a wide variety of effects. An article on ginseng, often put in Chinese green tea:

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Just an example, other plants contain different phytochemicals but may have similar effects.

Correct. They have special coolers in which it freezes within minutes, preserving nearly all the nutrients.

Blast freezers. I done some work for a company where we used blast freezers to preserve the nutrients found in seaweed, which was later extracted for use in agricultural fertilizers, which leads me nicely on to seaweed based foods such as Nori and Kelps. Seaweed based foods are typically rich in calcium, protein, vits B, B2, C, iron and magnesium, all of which are particularly beneficial to athletes. I believe that Wakame, a type of kelp contains Fucoxanthin (sp?), which is excellent for burning off fatty tissue. There are some downsides such as a very high sodium content, but as a small addition to your weekly diet, the odd seaweed soup or seaweed salad dish can be a tasty, low calorie meal that is bursting with beneficial nutrients.

Excellent addition. Sea vegetables are high on basically every mineral in existence. Sea salt (not regular kitchen salt, that's just sodium) contains at least 75 different minerals and trace elements. It's the soup we originate from. The sea, unlike soil, always provides enough nutrients for plants.

You mean baby food I assume?

A positive aspect is that it can't contain certain questionable additives as they're prohibited in baby food. I often buy forest fruit syrup with added vitamins, also originally meant for babies. I use it instead of lemonade on hot days, or I add it to buttermilk.

Back in my days of ultimate fitness, I ate everything I wanted as frequently as I could. I was lean and mean. Body fat was 4%, 5'8" 140. I was a high school sprinter with muscles on muscles. To me it wasn't so much the diet, as much as the amount of time I spent working out, and how I worked out. I was in training at least 3 hours daily, every day. Intense repetitive sprints and power building exercises. Everything was about building the most explosiveness possible, from both the upper, core and lower body. I couldn't run past 200 meters without dying, but my body was not trained to do that. Now that I'm older and running and walking long distances as an alternative to stay in shape, I can't get ripped, pumped or anywhere in the same general shape I was in back in my sprinting days. I'm convinced it's the workout that effects physique. I find myself eating only twice per day now, and even then, I have alot of trouble staying under 180. I eat right, cut the fats and do lots of cardio, but it's not the same as explosive building exercises. Problem now is, I'm old and every time I try building explosive power, I injure myself. My body simply can't take the repetitive stresses of those kinds of workouts. So I will keep walking, eating right and maybe some day, it will have the same magic bullet effect. But much like my hairline, I think those days are gone forever.
