Come on Donald, you're a bright guy but a lot of your posts are "Joel says this..." or "Lyle says that..."

I know you're learning all the time but let's not be so artless.

The whole spat was mindless. A kid coached by a guy who wrote a book called Starting Strength got stronger. In that process to support those gains and his hard work he consumed calories and put on weight. But he got stronger. He did not aspire to some silly 21st Century convention of looking like an andro rent boy and fearing the loss of visible abz. A bunch of keyboard warriors who favour the leg press & coke fuelled Armani models wet their pants about it.

Utterly pathetic.
The rationale for reduced gin intake and the knowledge of the perils of alcoholism and attendant metabolic derangement has almost entirely come from physicians and researchers.
