Things aren't as simple as Taubes puts it, since there are many groups that eat high carb diets without gaining weight. (note, not refined carbs, I'm talking about the groups that eat sweet potatoes all the time.)

    Steven Guyanot at wholehealthsource.blogspot.com has a nice takedown of the whole issue in his post on the twinkie diet.
    I agree that he's not totally correct, but still, his point that calories in alters calories out and vice versa holds true (as well as that the type of calories and other factors alter both of those)

    Mehdi can be close minded, but his strength regimen works. Remember that the website is about strength. I use stronglifts for my training and this site for dietary advice (not a bad combination).

    I never bothered with the SL forms after Mehdi started tightening the rules and made it all private. That's no way to run a forum imo.

    It works because it's the same thing as Starting Strength but with more (and unneccessary) sets at the beginning. Funny that this thread got resurrected from 2010.

    I heard he wasn't that strong either.

    But his routine? Since it's basically a modified copy of SS, it's got roots.

    Well, it, and the Starting Strength program that it is a copy of, are not bodybuilding programs in any way. They don't promise anything about "definition" or "physique" - they promise that you'll be squatting 300 and deadlifting 400 within a year. Go look at the form check videos on the Starting Strength forum - there are lots of middle aged and overweight guys getting darn strong, but not necessarily with great physiques.
    strong does not = looking strong.

    You are obviously well-liked and respected here tfarny. No need to propose that Mehdi might indeed be a bit of a muppet.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    Is that a penis in your mouth or did you go vegan?
    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.
