I'd say I wish my metabolism was like Chaco's rather than Chaco's like mine, I just don't think I can achieve it the way he thinks it can be done by everyone.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
Being just an old fashioned guy myself; I’m beyond tired of all these fragile mama boys (and girls!) with powder in their gluteus and soft pillows under their arm pits that cannot recover from their 3 days a week abbreviated “strength” routine…
The arrogance of young men can be quite startling. But from an evolutionary standpoint, perhaps it was necessary way back when. After all, most young girls are more attracted to the guy who seems to know everything than to timid guys who are honest about trying to find their way.
That said, we no longer mate for life at 14 or 15, so once again an adaptation that might have worked for Grok just comes off silly.
I don't write Choco off totally and hope that someday he'll look back at his youthful arrogance and blush maybe just a little.
Besides, everyone knows it's we Baby Boomers who know everything, not those young muscle-heads.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
I don't see what Choco Taco is doing wrong. He eats whole foods, just with higher carbs. He still eats primal foods. He even says that he cycles high carb and higher fat days/meals. His goal is to increase his metabolic rate. He isn't ruining it by eating junk food. Any junk food he eats is high in saturated fat anyway (not PUFAs).
He found what works for him. Cool. But he won't let other people do the same thing. Double standards everywhere.
Whole bunch of hating going on in here, but, to throw it out, my metabolism has gotten better than when I was teenager. Based on an algorithm(crude estimation, really, but works well enough) I coded, going by weight gain/loss and average calorie intake plus exercise vs sedentary, on a weekly or monthly basis(I coded both) it puts my maintenance calories at near 3.8k. I never ate remotely close to that when I was a teenager, and put on weight easier.
Choco, and I, are doing it right by supporting metabolism earlier, so, I seriously doubt his is going to "tank" and gain 50+ lbs as a jealous user put it. It's obvious it slows down, but, by being healthier early, and negating stress as much as possible, I highly doubt he's going to run into too many problems.
Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.
