    So the low carb guy is in great shape because low carb is great, but the vegan guy is in shape for some reason other than his diet? I'd argue that you are being grossly biased.

    There is a huge difference between a diet of processed food and a diet of whole food.

    I think there are similarities... in that, if you want to lose weight it's always recommended that you go low carb (with primal/paleo), and the premise behind Atkins was that a diet low in carbs and high in fats would help you lose weight. I don't, however, see the two as being at all related. The point of a paleo/primal diet is to eat the way humans evolved to eat, whereas Atkins was just designed around the most effective way to lose weight.

    what are you recommending a vegan diet?? It really comes down to what's going on in the cells, im not an expert or anything but I know that decreasing your exposure to glucose is the healthiest way to live bases on all the research ive done. never in history have we not eaten meat but now suddenly people want to talk about living on a plant based diet. Dr. Ellis is ripped not only because he eats healthy but he's been lifting since he was 8 years old and was a former athlete. He still lifts today obviously. He was also a vegetarian for three years and lost all of his muscle mass during that period. Can't find a pic online but there is a pic in his book, "The Vitamin and Mineral Hoax"

    Yesterday was my training day. I had a pound of sweet potatoes and 4-5 bananas. This does not have to be low carb.

    I hate that they always leave out some of the most important aspects of the HEALTHY Okinawan diet of the previous generation (1970's).....particularly:

    --LARD LARD LARD (anti-inflammatory, lowers sdLDL-particles and %-sdLDL, increases particle buoyancy like other saturated fatty acids like lauric acid)

    This article is contradictory. How is it a low glycemic diet if the diet is high in carbohydrate and low in fat? It isn't apparently. This article also reference the so called health benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Watch this video, you may reconsider your high consumption of olive oil. I don't necessarily agree with everything he says but he has his facts straight.

    I also don't feel that VLC provides optimal performance for everyone. It most certainly doesn't in my case.

    Bennett is like the anti-Choco. All the insistence, none of the carbs.
