yeah wow I like a lot of stuff i read there. heck tommorrow he'll have an article about how great a raw food diet is so dont get too worried.
but that article really takes things out of context to say that he doesnt know how important good fats are for the body is a joke. He knows clearly how important they are and if they read the book the china study they would realize he knows how important good fats are. He just doesnt think there is any need to eat so stinken much of them!! lots of things are good for your in small amts.
to finish it up with how a low carb diet is so optimal is a joke. I did a low carb diet and yeah i lost TONS of weight. But athletic performance wise its just not there. and anyone who thinks they are great for athletic performance hasnt tried a high carb raw vegan diet yet. I ran great on a low carb diet or at least I thought i ran great. Till i started running on high carb then i realized how bad it was going for me.
Just yest I read about some low carb runner and it sounds like he still took in some carbs. I didnt read too much into it but i'd imagine he's still sucking down carbs to fuel his long runs. Either that or he's fighting it a lot more then he has too.
Eating High carb and being a runner is like having the proper tools to do your job. Yeah you can do it without the right tools but its a whole lot easier to have the right tools.
That article and the comments on it are painful to read. I can't even comment on the page... just too many stupid and/or uneducated people.
yeah that's why it was hard for me to be civil. good call. thanks guys. its true he does some stuff on raw food healing, and then turns around and promote raw milk, too! so true, jim. everyone is worried about protein and good fats, but they have no idea how much you need!
people advocate high protein for a few reasons. on a low carb diet what the heck else are you going to eat to get enough calories. it also causes appetite supprression and allows them to starve themselves more comfortably. theres no reason to shovel in so much protein unless your trying to keep the hunger at bay and avoid carbs.
Right, even human babies don't need very much protein and they're actually growing!
Benson's goading the vegan community to provoke interest in his article.
He tries position himself as an authority while attempting to discredit Campbell's work.
Overall, desperate and superficial.
