Default T-Nation interview with Jonny Bowden

http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...bout_nutrition

I've never heard of the author but this alone was worth the read:

Quote:
Let's say we put all T-Nation readers on an island for a year. We give half of them nothing but protein and fats for that year. The other half gets all carbohydrates — no protein, no fat. That group, the carb-only group, would be dead in a year. The other group will do just fine.
And this:

Quote:
When you see a dietician, run the other way. Sure, talk to experts in nutrition, but avoid dieticians like the plague. It's like trying to get objective advice about religion from the Taliban. The ADA is a pathetic and irrelevant organization.

Bowden: Well, they can make you fat. That's a definite. It's not just the calories, it's the fact that your body stops processing fat while it gets rid of the alcohol.
Huh?

I like him.

And yes, your body does slow down fat processing (liver multitasking) but probably not completely... unless you're trying to waste yourself.
