I hope I'm reading this incorrectly....

You know Otzi, from your journals and posts it really looks like you lost almost all your excess weight on low carb then lost the last ten "vanity pounds" and made your pretty abs pop out more clearly with the spud fest and then forgot what got you most of the way in the first place. (And, BTW you do look hot, bro.)
It's not just about different ratios for different people. It's also different for any one person depending on the stage of weight loss they are in. John has made some great progress but has quite a bit more to go. He is not at the last ten vanity pounds stage yet.
