Enough said. Talk is cheap.
I live in Adelaide and know of both DR and Colpo. I have much respect for DR and nothing against Colpo other than believing his diet methodology is not as ideal as the 811.
To be honest, I do think we gain nothing from getting into "my diet is better than your diet" debates with Colpo or anyone else. To the outsiders it just looks a bit weak and does nothing to add credibility to our dietary views. I believe it would be fair to say most of us had different dietary views at some stage in the past and would have defended our diets of the time equally strong as Colpo. I lost 15kgs a few years back on a low carb diet. So I thought it was awesome. I have since learned that the fat loss was as far as the benefit went and that I couldn't train adequately and my health would ultimately suffer if I continued. My point being don't blame anyone for believing in their diet. Let us just be positive examples and not give them cause to criticise 811 or vegans in general as a defense response.
Afterall his diet is better than the big mac diet....one day he may figure out that a fruitarian diet with a little b12 shot is the right way to go...but it wont happen as long as we give him cause to defend himself.
Anyway that is my view. I am not normally the peace and harmony vegan hippy type but maybe there is some of that in me after all :)
DurianRider, if you ever want someone to ride with on one of your cruisier days drop me a line. You are clearly a better rider than me but you did say if someone wants to become a better rider then ride with someone who can drop them! (p.s. I want to become a better rider :)
For Darren. Would be great to go for a chill spin when Im back in town. :)
"George "I eat up to 70 bananas a day.." What a Jackass!!! The caloric value of a large banana is approximately 120 Kcal and contains about 600 mgs of Potassium. So this wacko, claims that he digests up to 8400 Kcals and 42 grams of Potassium per day, without crapping his pants every 10 minutes and all this with a body-weight of 66 Kilos!!! Plus, the maximum daily intake of potassium is around 4 grams. Larger quantities can bring up intestinal problems, diarrhea and heart rhythm disorders. Well actually, 42 grams per day can bring up death!!!"
^ LMAO uneducated.
Darren is banana's. I didn't want to debate with Colpo, but show him we're not afraid to. He is just taking away from people who could be fruitarians. I suppose most people won't listen anyway..
With all the allegations that Anthony Colpo is a steroid user Im surprised he wouldnt come for a TT with me up Norton Summit. I mean its not like he is 120kg bodybuilder or anything. His excuse is he weighs 75kg lol! Lance Armstrong weighed that much when I rode up Norton Summit with him in 2009 lol!
I can just imagine Lance saying 'Hey DR, would love to go riding with you but too heavy at the moment...'
I rode past Anthony Colpo this summer up a local climb. He was red faced and puffing. I smiled and waved but don't think he noticed me.
I put out the olive branch a long time ago and all he said was 'piss off wanker!'.
What a nice guy.
