  • Mehdi banned me from Stronglifts forum!

    At least, banned me from new posting, edited two of my posts, and prevented me from sending PMs. Because I recommended a guy on there try Paleo. Mehdi himself responded "Paleo is a fad diet" and posted two terrible links from the mainstream press. I suggested he read up on the subject and provided a couple of links. Two posts later I found myself unable to make new posts.

    He let this other guy diss Paleo freely, he himself posts links and disses paleo, then shuts me down. The absolute opposite of what a "discussion" board should be. Just had to vent and let people know about it.

    That's too bad that he's so closed minded.

        that blows. though, i gotta say, this forum is way better than stronglifts. i guess i'm not surprised that mehdi would have a problem with primal/paleo...he advocated so strongly for joel marion's 'cheat your way thin' which recommended gorging yourself on the crappiest food imaginable for refeeds

          Lyle McDonald disses paleo all the time too. Lyle's blog is still good for people that want to get brainy as hell on fitness.

          I just really don't understand arguments AGAINST eating natural foods. Really boggles my mind. Fuck medhi though, all he was good for was ripping off Rippetoe in creating 5x5.
          I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

            I could care less what the guy thinks. But if you read it, you only get to read the parts of messages that he approves, yet you think it's a "discussion" - it's like reading a newspaper article that's been censored without knowing it's been censored.

            Hey guys, tell me honestly: I'm not a dick am I? I always believe that if someone thinks you are obnoxious you should stop just for a minute and say "am I obnoxious?"

              I definitely associate certain characters on the forum as dick-ish (sometimes, comical dick-ishness, which I rather enjoy). But you are not on that list. As proof of that, no self-respecting dick would ask for confirmation about whether they were or weren't one!

                No. It sounds like this mod guy is though.

                You can just be happy with the thought that you're aging slower than him and his ignorance is literally killing him.

                  Nah Lyle doesn't rip on the paleo diet itself, but rather the flawed rationale that *some people* have with regards to why it works. His book "The Ketogenic Diet" is the best technical text out there on low-carb eating. He's definitely well aware of the benefits.

                  I agree though, I don't understand how anyone can make an argument against eating meat and veggies.

                      Your first few posts have to go through and editor first, and he would probably delete your = constructive = feedback anyhow.

                        Tfarney, you are definitely not a dick. I know, I can be the biggest dick of the all when I want to be. I would say you are the oppisite, in fact. The anti-dick if you will. You're normally the one coming strong with the reason and the logic. I say fuck them. Now you can post more here. There loss is our gain.

                          I guess you got banned because a diet free of processed foods and one that by and large advocates NOT buying ready-made food goes against Mehdi's financial interests...

                          Back to Lyle, he jumped all over that "grains were used by paleo peoples" article that was all around a few weeks ago. I just don't think he cares for paleo itself even if his Ketogenic diet book advocates low-carb eating. There's also a thread on his message board where everybody's playing grab-ass making fun of paleo, Lyle included.

                            Keep in mind also that the SL crowd tends to be all about gaining weight moreso than losing.

                              1) you're not a dick.

                              2) this is absurd. absent dickitude, why would you ban someone?

                              3) I read his "book". I found it to be a longwinded crock that was a rip off of Rippetoe (who did a far better job with it). He comes off like an arrogant prick.
