So I went to two of Tim's talks at the Woodstock Fruit Festival. I had a good impression of him. Very fit, friendly guy, very good speaker. In one of his talks he explained that he tried the 801010 way, but didn't feel optimal. He said he couldn't afford it as well. Currently he's eating a green smoothie in the morning (kale, bananas, berries, dates), fruits during the day and a huge salad in the evening (plus an avocado and some olive oil) (he even apologized for the olive oil, but he said he just likes the taste). No fruits in the evening, because it made him to jittery.
He guesses his carb/fat/protein ratios are approximately 70/20/10 on average, his caloric intake between 2000 and 2500. He also made the interesting observation that people just don't need all the sugar from the fruits- it will just be excreted from the body (I believe he said through urination, might be mistaken).
He's running quite a bit daily, up to 2 hours a day, and winning a lot of competitions. So he seems to be doing quite well on his approach. My wife has ordered me to try his way, since it would mean we would save quite a bit of money on groceries!
Any thoughts about his approach?
Dutchie! I can't match up username with anyone I met. I'm sorry can you remind me when we met?
I can honestly say that the only time I get even slightly depressed is when I'm not looking after my basic needs, particularly the big ones - enough carbs, sleep and water. On a side not (If I remember correctly) Tim said he has trouble sleeping which is a classic sign someone isn't eating enough calories, particularly carbs. The brain keeps us active in order to find more calories. Fasters are notoriously bad sleepers.

If you are refering to the interview with DTM he said he was sleeping better/deeper if he had a protein/fatty meal in the evening and gave an explanation of why he think that is so.
An alarm bell rung for me when Tim said that he wakes up most mornings and doesn't want to live because he is so depressed.
Did he say this in one of his talk and was he talking in present tense or past tense? I saw the lifegenerator vid in which he talked about experiencing deep depression in the past but I interpreted it as he had overcome this now?
do you have any idea of approximately when the videos from the lectures will be available in full?
