I'm really happy to hear that you've helped people make a positive change. I used to be really preachy when I first started learning about health and fitness. The problem I've come to accept (no matter how much it hurts) is you can't change people, who don't want to change. It isn't an efficient use of time, or a proper thing to do to someone who is unwilling to accept your albeit positive help.
If only people could understand the problem poor food and lifestyle habits pose, particularly later on in life. It hurts when it's the people you love and care about, but in essence, you can only really ever save yourself.
Your dedication to learning and properly educating yourself show, that's a quality I admire.
Very interesting stance on omega-3s. You and derp really expanded my view on PUFAs. I literally was mindblown when you mention a lot of the information I'm still trying (and will take some time) to wrap my head around and understand a bit better. I cut out ALL the PUFA's, and I do believe I see some benefits already, albeit not the same drastic effect droping Gluten was. I am after all at a pretty healthy state.
I saw it yesterday, and read it just now to see what you were talking about. It is in my opinion a slightly negative stance to a high carb approach, particularly to people who train HARD. Not saying Mark never did, but it's a different metabolic stress being an endurance athlete/ explosive athlete. Also as you mention, he may have never tried 600g + of Paleo friendly carbs, although he isn't necessarily going to probably ever need that amount again.
