I find it funny that Matt Stoner's point is to be "unbiased about dogmatic and restrictive diets". But from sifting through the crap that is his blog (it's very difficult to do if you're a somewhat rational human being) this seems more like a cult of a bunch of strange, confused individuals that any other Vegan forum I've stalked for shits and giggles.
Seriously scary stuff.
At first I thought it was a spoof blog. "Hey, look at my success at keeping my body warm after eating a bunch of oatmeal, potatoes topped with butter and donuts!" Hahah funny.
Then I was concerned...
I feel like he's not telling us the whole story. Why did Paleo suddenly fail to work for this guy? I know he talks about restriction to be a cause for heightened cortisol (duh) but he himself says he didn't exercise and didn't count calories and viola!
Where was the restriction? Oh woe that is me bountiful fresh berries, butter, cream and bacon... the deprivation! Oh the horror!
Then I started reading his blog with genuine interest, I'm always open for new revelations (I even tolerate Jack Kruze, who sometimes spouts erratic advice; his new thing is eating a pound of seafood every day. But his are actually based on his vast knowledge and practice, not from reading "50 books a year" *ooh wow*...) I was open minded but the more I read the more convinced I became that HED has fried his brain.
And like his diet, his tasteless humour is hard to stomach (pun intended).
I guess you have to buy his 209382309 ebooks to find out.
Paleo for Population Control! – 180 Degree Health
Diets are Like New Girlfriends – 180 Degree Health
-- I guess free love is in accordance with this not-at-all dogmatic lifestyle ;/
Anyway, to actually find out what his premise is you'd need to buy his 23098193 books, and I'm well-stocked on toilet paper.
