They assume if they are getting good info, the person will follow their own advice and "look" it.</div>How a person looks means pretty little to me these days. A 6' 170lb guy who has coached world class olympic athletes recently helped me get up to a 835 deadlift....I've also been reading Lyle's books...he doesn't look like he lifts weights.....a teeny guy from China helped me improve my grip....etc. etc. <div></div><div id="QUOTEHEAD">QUOTE</div><div id="QUOTE">And the very few societies that did eat a meat ONLY diet like the Inuit are NOT representative of our evolutionary diet as a whole, they lived in harsh conditions where food choices were limited. Most experts on our evolutionary diet put meat as a primary food source, along with varying proportions of vegetables, fruits, nuts...etc.</div>THis isn't a big deal. I'm experimenting here, not trying to latch on to some new life long diet plan. Neither am I preparing for a competition. I've cut down to low bodyfat levels plenty of times, and it's always been a huge pain in the a** for me. I've always done it by consuming few cals and few carbs. In the process I lose size and strength, and I don't enjoy that process. Using the principle of PCB no one can teach me how to keep my strength levels, because it can't be done. The lectures and interviews I've seen of Taubes has me interested in giving this a try, and I know I"ll regret it if I don't see the results (or lack of them)for myself . I don't expect to keep my strength or size any better than I have done in the past, but the results thus far are pretty exemplary (minus the diarrhea). Anyway, My GI problem needs to be corrected, if it's not fixed after giving up my supplements, I'll know the diet is crap (no pun intended), and go back to the same BS I know works. No one is going to die here. This is no different than trying a new plifting or bbing program.
