Default 21 day challenge...man goes low carb and high carb


Found this referenced in a video I linked under carb counters called Diet, Health, and the Wisdom of Crowds.

So he goes on a 21 day 5,000 calories plus a day diet with low carb. And?????? He does gain a couple of pounds but loses an inch on his waist. So he gained muscle.

Then he goes on a 21 day 5,000 calories more conventional, USDA, food pyramid recommended diet (ok more of it). He gains 16 lbs in 21 days and 4 inches on his waist....

Ok I watched more of it. His high carb diet was pretty low quality. But still remarkable results.

I would take this with a grain of salt. It's anecdotal at best, and we're relying on his word (not saying he's lying, but it's not a scientific study either).

This is actually high quality state of the art science compared to the most central diet 'truths'of the last 50 years.

Saturated fats are bad? Zero proof. Ancel Keys was a hack and fraud. Vegetable oils are good for you? Mind blowing nonsense.

Whole grains are good for you? Completely made up tripe. Get the free ebook through March 3rd I mention in carb counters if you don't believe me.

Yes this isn't a valid study, in it being so small. But at least the form is a randomized clinical trial. He controlled for virtually all confounding factors by using himself twice and the same amount of calories both times.

If you've bought any of the standard diet advice the last 50 years, your eating is based on a lot worse studies. And I did buy into it. Thank goodness not any longer.
