    I don't doubt you. I've attempted to try some of his practices, and they didn't work for me at all.

    Because they're often insulin resistant. Steak and eggs are fantastic foods with nutrient density that is tough to beat. But the overwhelming majority of us will function best on a balanced diet, not a macro-restricted diet.

    Every aspect of life is a competition from the relationship to your friends, your significant other, your coworkers and especially your health. Lose the competition and you lose your job, your spouse, your friends and in this case, maybe your life. Some people are fine just sliding by, others want to be extraordinary.

    Sweet! Ribeye and salad for the win tonight then.

    lol, and if you can't make your case logically or back it with peer reviewed evidence be sure to "win the competition" with some drivel that appeals to emotion

    Intolerant to what? I've seen countless threads about "carbohydrate intolerance" and it makes my brain hurt. It is water retention, glycogen repletion and insulin resistance. People are used to being depleted, partially dehydrated and insulin resistant, so the sudden overnight change can be unpleasant. They retain water, their muscles swell and sometimes "ache" and they fall asleep from an inability to efficiently oxidize glucose.

    I eat a zero fat diet? That's news to me. The half gallon of whole milk I just bought, 4 lbs of shredded coconut in my closet, the 7 lb container of palm shortening I just bought, 3 dozen eggs in my fridge and the entire kitchen drawer full of chocolate better not contain any fat...

    I believe the term "n=1" is largely a cop out. I've seen how people "try" things for the most part. They give a half-effort and get terrified when the slightest constant changes. I can't tell you how many people fail to lose weight because they starve themselves into a metabolic shutdown but won't reverse-diet long enough to fix it because the weight gain terrifies them and they start starving themselves again. I can't tell you how many people won't give honest exercise a shot because it's too hard, or they're too busy, or they're too tired. I can't tell you how many people blame their genetics for everything when virtually everyone on this planet has the ability to become relatively strong and lean. "N=1" is an excuse. For every difference we have, we have 100 similarities because we're the exact same species. Most people don't know what works for them because they've never really tried, so they're stuck in a never-ending cycle of mediocrity.

    That's what my n=1 has taught me.

    What exactly are you talking about? Exactly where did I put myself up on a high horse? I'm telling it like it is. I'm not going to make excuses for anyone, and if you're a slacker I'll say it right to your face. What exactly does being "young" and "white" have to do with anything? Some of the most out of shape, overweight people I've seen are "young" and "white."

    Everyone on this website has the capability to reach their goals. Stop making excuses. If you have a goal, REACH FOR IT. Don't sit there and whine about it.
