The reason why you Starting Strength evangelists and the main bulk of uneducated gym rats in general get almost everything wrong about strength is that they don’t know the fundamentals of human physiology! You can lift more without becoming stronger, in a physiological sense, but if you got physiological strength adaptions(i.e. myofibrillar hyperthrophy) then you de facto became stronger, no matter how much you can bench or squat! Try reading some of the articles that I linked to above again, not that I think it ever will sink in though…

Obese people and those desiring to lose weight should perform hard work before food. Meals should be taken after exertion and while still panting from fatigue. They should, moreover, only eat once per day and take no baths and sleep on a hard bed and walk naked as long as possible.
