Along with carb-paranoia and veganism, one of the more popular diet trends in recent times is “intermittent fasting” (IF). Long time readers will know the concept leaves me cold; the research to back all the lavish claims made for IF simply doesn’t exist. More research has emerged indicating IF is not all it’s cracked up to be, in the form of a recent randomized clinical trial that studied the effect of IF in middle-aged participants.
The Game Changers claims a vegan diet is the ultimate for athletic performance and will give you steroid-like muscle growth. The movie even claims animal foods lower testosterone, while eating vegan will make your dick harder! This article explains why these claims are complete and utter horseshit. Oh, and you’ll also learn why Arnold Schwarzenegger is a blatant hypocrite.

An Australian woman attempting to prove “vegans can do anything” has died while climbing Mount Everest.
If, after recent events, you thought Gary Taubes could not possibly sink any lower, then … you thought wrong.
Find out why the so-called ‘non-profit’ Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI) is in fact a lucrative cash cow for its founders, netting Gary Taubes and Peter Attia an estimated $1,800,000+. To top it all off, after several years and after spending millions of other people’s money, the organization has so far produced only a single study which simply found what dozens of others have already shown.
For years, low-carb author Gary Taubes has been belittling and snidely dismissing those who disagree with his nonsensical claims about carbs, insulin and obesity. A couple of days ago, at an obesity conference in Canada, researchers announced the results of yet another metabolic ward study debunking Taubes’ claims. But this was no ordinary ward study – it was a study that Taubes himself helped conceive!
Polyunsaturated ‘vegetable’ oils have long been promoted as “heart-healthy”. Researchers recently presented yet more data showing these oils are in fact more likely to increase cardiovascular and overall mortality!
Thanks to a viral YouTube video, a best-selling book, and countless media appearances, Robert Lustig has become a widely-quoted and highly influential anti-sugar commentator. Which is a pity, because most of what he says is complete garbage.
