    I've read some of his articles. I wouldn't have layed articles out in quite the way he did with boxed paragraphs inside articles, but I haven't noticed anything factual that I flat out disagree with.

    Just to look at his most recent series of posts on 'A calorie is not a calorie'. Seems like there's science in there.

    Autophagy reference for those so inclined. My eyes blurred a couple paragraphs in. Beyond my competence.

    Actually, I did not. This is what I said:

    That quotation is not prefaced with "Mark Sisson says." What I was referring to is the overall context of the Primal Blueprint, where copious amounts of added fats are okay but the same does not hold true for sugars, even though most sugars (honey, maple syrup, molasses, brown sugar, palm sugar, sucanat) are more nutritious than most fats that are given the green light.

    Anyone who has ever made any impact in history would strongly disagree with you. When you try and please everyone, you please no one.

    It varies wildly. I give into my cravings. I know when I want fats, I know when I want carbs. I just choose good sources of fat and carbs. Some days I do a huge run on potatoes and fruit. The past two weeks with the weather shifting, I've been wanting bones. Fruit has really taken a back seat with the cold, although I've developed a huge craving for apples. In the past 2 weeks, I've eaten lamb shank, lamb loin, chuck short ribs, beef back ribs, 3 dozen eggs and I got my first butternut squash. I'm usually not a huge fan of bone-in meats but I've been dying for them lately, so there's probably a reason. Why fight it?

This isn't the first choco thread of this nature. (although, he's only 20% of the posts here, so not really spamming the thread).

    Why do you think there are so many posts about beating a dead horse?

    Also, could you please substantiate the bit I bolded? Or at least add something more that would make your post a rebuttal rather than an ad-hominem.
    Do you suppose I quit my job to find time to reply to every single post on MDA that I'm referenced in? That amount of time spent in front of blue light sources surely isn't Primal.

    I think I do a decent job following up here and there, but I don't get paid for this shit. If you want me to read something specific, PM me or something. There has to be some consistency here. If I respond, then I'm spamming. If I don't respond, it's because I've been debunked and I'm too small of a man to admit it. What do you want me to do? Some of you are like children in the father-son pee race. If you pee longer than me, you win because you peed longer. If you don't pee as long as me, you win because you finished first. If I play by your rules, I always lose since it's a fight I cannot win, so why bother? You can't talk to someone that doesn't want to be talked to.

    Eat some carbs and some fat. Play with the ratios however you want. Autophagy is good sometimes but don't go crazy about it. Logic. Now go back to the dead horse flogging.

    Huh?
    Anyone reading the above would read it as you slamming Mark Sisson for ALL the points in that paragraph. Shame on you for being disingenuous
    I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for everybody, and I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for a person through every stage of their life

    According to Mark Sisson, refined fats are superior to fruit, dairy, tubers, nuts and chocolate and should make up a larger part of your diet than said real, whole, nutritious foods. Sugars, which are often more healthful than fats, don't even make the list at all.

    Do you see this as a problem? I surely do. To promote refined fats - the very definition of empty calories - above fruit, dairy and nuts is ridiculous.

    By quoting himself that one single sentence and not the entire paragraph as you have, Sweet Leilani, that is his way of backpedaling, spinning and pretending he didn't say the stupid things he always says.
