    Mehdi banned me from Stronglifts forum!

    Primal Fuel
    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 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.
