  • Let's see photos of the Mega Posters

    There are quite a few very regular posters on this Forum dispensing information, insight and advice. It is my rule of thumb that I base some of my opinion on their expertise by studying a a picture of these nutritional and health experts, who you would think follow their own advice, to see the results of their healthy lifestyles. Some like Paleobird have posted amazing pictures and even had their success story printed, others like Grizz and the more recent mega poster JamesS have never (to my knowledge) posted pictures of themselves. I challenge all frequent forum contributors to post a photo and show us that you practice what you preach.

    Um, not everyone wants to post pictures of themselves on the internet, dude.

      That's fine and I respect their choice, it would just help their credibility to show the results of their practice on a forum focused on health and wellness. IMO

        Why don't you just go with what seems logical and backed with a little bit of evidence, then try it on yourself?

        Most things work a little differently for everyone anyway, not to mention everyone having different goals.

        Prime example - I'm shooting for brain healing after injury, not really weight loss, even though I'm probably 15 pounds overweight. I have pictures of my brain, but I can't post them. Have a bit of a chub for a belly doesn't mean what I'm saying is any less valid.

            Point taken, I do seriously look at all advice and apply it when I feel it would be beneficial. Good luck on healing your brain injury!

              there are plenty of pics around of me. what does that prove? not much. i wasn't very heavy to begin with, and my long term goal is health (as much as i talk about aesthetics). my pics might show that i know which foods and quantities work for my body.

              awww kenn, don't be so shy. we were just giving you a hard time.

                I don't post pictures of myself on forums. I figure I'm credible enough by the fact that as of this morning, I'm down another 10 pounds from the beginning of May, but if you only want to believe people who post pics, go ahead. Protecting at least some of my privacy online doesn't mean I am being dishonest about my health and weight.

                  You want photos of me? Go digging through my journal. I never had much to lose; I'm almost exclusively in this for my health. I generally don't give advice on weight loss, mostly because I HAVEN'T been there, done that. How to help your thyroid? I'll generally give guarded advice on that, with lots of caveats. Basic primal? I've been doing it long enough that I feel I can give advice on the original blueprint with no tinkering. Ketosis, very low carb, muscle gain, celiac's, and all the stuff I haven't dealt with myself? Don't expect me to give advice.
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    To be fair, no one says you have to post a pic of your face.

                      Exactly, also I'm not saying people who don't post their picture have no credibility, my point is that it adds to their credibility and gives it more weight. I also completely understand if someone does not want to post their picture for whatever reason.

                        What's that? You want proof that my new swim suit fits me? And then we should meet to go swimming? Sounds like fun, mister!
                        In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                          Do you need actual pictures?
                          How about measurements?
                          Will that be enough to visualize?

                          I'm 5'0" and 103-105 pounds depending on the day.
                          34-26-35.
                          I still have a bit of pooch lower belly and one smallish fat roll right at belly button level.
                          I'm still a little skinny fat, even at my weight. You can see it from the measurement (waist a little big).
                          That's because I hate exercise and I really need to get back into it.
                          I also tend toward sugar binges. Yeah, I know.
                          My goal is to lose 3 pounds of fat and gain 3 pounds of muscle in the next 4-5 months.

                          Maybe you think I'm lying about my measurements, but I could lie with the picture too.
                          5'0" female, 45 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently 111.

                              Anybody demanding pics is looking for people to look like models or to have 6-pack abs, something many of us older women have criticized Mark for using in his success stories as opposed to more realistic women. My picture in a bathing suit has been posted in a few places. I wish I could do better but that seems to be about it for me.
