You are even worse than an ignorant person. You cling so blindly and dogmatically to your beliefs that you refuse to see any other possible way.
No one likes your crap. There's two sides to every coin. I accept that there are merits of a high-carb diet. Perhaps you should do the same about other people's views.
"Your" way, or the methods that you espouse so fanatically on these boards, is by no means optimum for every single person on the planet, contrary to what you would make those that are less-informed believe.
nowhere in this thread did I argue for a high carb diet, nor do I think a high carb diet is necessarily the best for everyone.
However, it's pretty freakin ridiculous to me that people seem to think that 3 grams of carbs in milk is whats making/keeping them fat. As if no one has ever gotten ripped while drinking milk. give me a break.
it's called missing the forest for the trees, and virtually every thread that I post in is guilty of the same problem.
His post, while slightly neurotic, probably stems from the fact that milk in general is often touted as highly insulinogenic, and therefore is not as ridiculous as you seem to think. Also, what dedicated physique athlete (or someone engaged in similar pursuits) do you know that is not slightly obsessive?
If those observing don't mind, why don't you expand on your particular beliefs regarding diet philosophies. Particularly, a diet for someone looking increase lean body mass and also a diet for someone who seeks a reduction in body fat.
You can't dispute the fact that no one can even open a thread on this site to discuss anything related to low carbohydrate intake without fear of ridiculing from you.
I have noticed a trend of late of the poster you are referencing seeming to come across as harsh especially to posters relating to low carb intake. The difference I do not fear being ridiculed by this poster. I make an effort for my posts to be honest and as informative as possible. Of course there are times when I just post something with no hard proof but just sharing it because I have found it works well for me.
Not everyone is the same but I know for a fact that by lowering my carb intake and increasing my fat intake I can lose body fat much easier. However I am not concerned at all about drinking milk or Hood (especially chocolate!) because it is a great source of protein that I enjoy.
And I completely agree. And I wasn't implying you were afraid of him either. I was just stating for the record that I am not afraid of his posts. I share your concerns also but it is an open forum.
I am far from perfect but I honestly do make an effort to be as informative and helpful as I can. Even when someone posts something that could easily be answered with doing a search. I feel it is more helpful to answer them as best as possible and also encourage them to do a search for more information rather than just telling them to do a search and belittling them.
the difference is, successful physique atheletes obsess over things that actually MATTER. People who constantly spin their wheels for years getting absolutly nowhere, on the other hand, obsess over the shit that doesn't matter, like if the 3g of carbs in their reduced-carb milk is going to make them fat.
mass gain diet: 17-18 calories per lb (as a starting point) 1-1.25g of protein per lb, 20-35% of calories from fat (including 2-3g combined EPA+DHA), the rest of your calories fill in with carbs, making sure to eat plenty of fruits and veggies for health.
for fat loss: 11-12 calories per lb (as a starting point) 1.5-2g of protein per lb, 20-35% of calories from fat(including 2-3g combined EPA+DHA), the rest of your calories fill in with carbs, making sure to eat plenty of fruits and veggies for health.
no food is off limits (dairy, grains, refined starches, fatty cuts of meat) as long as they fit into your calories/macros.
fat stores itself even better in the presence of insulin. insulin is considered the king of storage/anabolic hormones. in the presence of high insulin, lipoprotein lipase drives storage of fat and inclusion of nutrients as fat. This is just one reason, mind you.
You're arguing against science, and so your statements are weak/negligible at best. move along
Right. And as mentioned before, this doesn't usually bother people who have been around for a while. However someone who is new could more easily be turned off by it. Maybe not everyone wants to help, but it is a good thing to help and it makes you feel nice.
You do realize that simply stating another way in which the body can store fat by another mechanism, says absolutely nothing against insulin's amazing ability to store fat as well? You're changing topic and mechanism because you know you're wrong, and you can't win this argument. move along
