    I'm only mentioning this because it comes from a guy I respect. Basically he makes an argument for carbs late in the day rather than early. IDK ....

      I typically don't read much in to an article when the before/after pics are taken at such varied locations such as his. You can't tell if any progress was made because of light manipulation, plus he used a shitty camera on before, then a less shitty camera on after. As far as thoughts on alternative diets and such, they're everywhere, and they're sometimes crap. This one just seems like a feelgood diet, one that gets "in tune" with your biorhythms and makes sure you feel all giddy about dieting. I've met some folks who are in to the holistic and natural approach to life in general, and they're good people, to each his own. I think the key with these diets is finding something that works for you and your lifestyle, regardless of what it is. So long as it's sound and not some off the reservation method. Just my person .02.
      …Time is so precious….and you need to ask yourself, what are you going to do today but more importantly, you need to ask yourself – how are you going to do it?

              Throwing around the term biorythm is just marketing to make it seem like something that has been around for a while is completely revolutionary.

                I don't think he ever said it was. I thought it was an interesting read though.

                I don't think the before and after pics are the best either but I also didn't think they were the highlight of the article....I found this article interesting because Skip here is against carbs before bed I'm pretty sure. I'd love to here his take on this article.

                I don't think this was too complicated so I don't get what you mean....



                I'm curious to if this works well. I'm always looking for an easiest way to skin the cat if you know what you mean and I have never really had a large amount of carbs before bed so I am curious to what skip would argue against this. I remember him mentioning something about GH release while sleeping being affected by carbs or something but I am kind of foggy in the memory department today. Curious to what others have to say though!

                  I am going to fast until 2pm every day, and then eat a regular days' worth of food from 2p-10p. I am going to only eat carbs in my last meal of the day which will be a pig out, and the rest of my meals will be prot/fat. I am also going to Skipload on Sundays and am contemplating doing a full fast on Sat, during which I will just sip BCAAs all day, to really maximize the effects of Sundays. Mon-Fri I am also going to use a High/Low every other day caloric cycle to really mix things up. I will remain Gluten-Fee throughout it all. I am going to use this dieting approach until January while recovery from my injury. I will not be doing any weight training or cardio of any kind.

                  I am going to call this the "Every Diet I Can Think OF Minus Anything That's Traditional Diet" or EDICT OF MATT Diet for short. Thoughts?



                  Edit: for the record, this is not really what I'm doing. I'm actually going to get as fat as possible and set myself up to be the perfect before/after candidate for the next great fat loss pill. Get me a mother fuckin scholarship!

                      Oh, but that's the beauty of it; there's built in cheat days every 1.5 weeks, so it's a non-issue!

                      and I get to cheat with my lovers weiner.. win-win

                        word. There's nothing like a warm, swiss cheese filled sausage to curb cravings while dieting.

                              That guy is Blade, he's a diet coach and he posts on this board sometimes, Skip likes him I believe, they seem to have some sort of friendship from their posts.

                              I will read the article tomorrow then comment on it, I have heard of carb backloading from Mark Bell on a podcast and thought it wasn't very interesting.

                              Martin Berkhan, from leangains, does something similar in that he fasts all day and carb loads for 8hrs, again, I beleived that it doesnt really matter if the carbs are in the morning or night, the important thing is that insulin levels are low most of the day.

                              Lately I have been reading a lot on dopamine, serotonin and their precursors. Playing around with taking a tbsp of leucine before everymeal and realized that this stopped me from sleeping if taken to late in the day because it stimulated dopamine/nor-adrenaline.

                              We are kind of meant to eat nothing all day, hunt, have lots of cathecholamines going, dopamine, gh, low insulin all day and then at night feast.

                              Carbs increase serotonin which leads to relaxation and deep sleep. I am starting to think that all those dieting bodybuilders complaining about not being able to sleep might want to try eating their carb portions right before bed instead of early in the day and I think they will be surprised by how good they feel, how well they sleep, how less hungry they are in the day and they will still be getting as lean as before.

                              The warrior diet is something along these lines as well.
