This idea that the body will upregulate its carbohydrate metabolism to keep pace with carb consumption, with the result of very little, if any, lipogenesis taking place is being argued by JMoUCF87 based on a couple of studies. Now it’s interesting that when he was asked how this theory was working out for himself or his clients, he went into a tyrade about not needing clients or even needing to train in order to be able to use “logic” to figure something out. He said he’s just a guy how likes to “talk nutrition”.
I’m sorry, but this is the same guy how believes that as long as you get your requsite calories and macronutrients, it doesn’t matter where they come from! A guy, in sarcasm, responded to his carbs don’t cause lipogenesis rant by saying he was going to slam some skittles and pop-tarts and get shredded. Our resident expert said, in all seriousness, “sounds good to me, as long as you’re getting your macros”!
This is the same guy I had a long disagrement with on the “If You Want to Eat Pure Food, You’re Crazy” thread. In a nutshell, this guy basically argues against everthing we at T-Nation take as foundational to a sound, sensible, life.
P.S. he also advocates for the authors who (apparently) were attacking the claims behind the “I, Bodybuilder” program–which hasn’t even been published yet. Granted, I know nothing about McDonald or Aragorn.
