Look at who is educating the general public and has the larger advertising budgets.....supplement companies.....like EAS and their Muscle Media magazines....where are people getting their information from?

OTOH, I have family friend, currently a guest of the state who has been gaining gobs of lean muscle and strength on pretty much oatmeal and tater tos. his max protein per day is a cup of scrambled eggs.
Thus, the thread title remains relevant, "What works for you?"

I've seen a lot of improvement the last couple months on a (mostly) Paleo/IF plan. I can't rightfully call it a Zone diet anymore. In an effort to simplify things, my diet looks like this:

PRO: "Greater than or equal to" 1 g/ LBM
CARB: ~ 3 bowl fulls of fruits/ice cream/veggies plus whatever veggies go on my salad
FAT: olive oil, about 2 seconds per pour, several times a day

In Zone terms, it's roughly 24/12/60, which approximates Robb Wolf's fat-for-carb swap plan.

Gant you just inspired me to take a swig straight from my olive oil bottle right now.
