If you haven't seen this.....Brad was on some morning TV show.....and it was basically an ambush by a "DR" and "Dietician" (s the piece is even labelled "diet fads")......Hence why I can't watch mainstream media programs anymore.....hopefully maybe some people got the message....but the way the so called health experts threw out common myths you read in $3 magazines was rediculous.....like there possibly couldn't be a way that overweight people could be healthy skipping a meal....yeah because a 300lb man would starve himself to death without a healthy breakfast....(already ranted about that study funded by Kelloggs on my blog about people needing cereal to lose weight....and eggs make you gain weight...but it still irks me)

How about a study showing an increase in doctor visits and certified dieticians with the increasing diseases and obesity....then by their deductive rules it must be them making people fat and sick.

How about the new special K comercial promoting a night time snack... a new cereal with added chocolate chunks as a healthy alternative to desert. I cracked up.

Oh... and I am not saying it is intentional but in a way... they are makeing people fat and sick. Well at least by the recomended diet.

That show clip really made me mad. Those 2 "experts" didn't let him speak at all after he did his initial intro. The last thing I heard was "what is this teaching people, what are they learning." As far as I can recall the standards recommended by most dieticians/experts are pertty awful. What have they taught people, what are people learning?

I am pretty new to IF myself, only been at it for a couple of weeks now...

I am not one of these people that lies to the people they are around. At work, people ask me out to lunch at 12 PM, and I know I am fasting until around 2 PM or 4 PM. I tell them straight up that I am fasting, and they spit out all the conventional wisdom given out by health experts about why skipping meals is stupid -- about how I need to keep my "fire burning" and my metabolism high....however, they also think that I am stupid for not eating breads/grains/rice.

People who know me a bit better know that I have done my research on all things nutritional and just accept that what I am doing is the best thing for me at this point.

The bottom line is that the major challenge I have experienced in my few weeks is properly informing people of the benefits. I direct them to theiflife.com, leangains.com and over a dozen publications in medical journals but it never seems to be good enough....

These, however, are the same people who told me Rip's GOMAD was going to make me fat -- despite putting on 20# of mass in 3 months...75% of the gains being lean (about 15# lean gains...)

I guess the real point is that you can't convince people of anything. While I agree with MOD that u can see positive results on any meal plan... 1 meal a day or 10 meals a day ... there is a difference between "results" and "optimal results". Not to mention the benefits people are missing out on by not fasting...

I guess some people put us under the same scrutiny for not being vegetarians despite the endless volumes of data on the "benefits" of being vegetarian.

It takes a more keen mind and a deeper understanding -- more in depth research and knowing the right people to speak with -- to understand why something like IF is beneficial and why vegetarianism/veganism is...well...asinine.
