Related to this topic, this weekend I was out with a friend (another "personal trainer") and we stopped by his other job for a drink and one the girls he works with asked advice about losing weight and getting fitter. Now he and I don't agree at all with each other when it comes to training so his answers fell in the range of eat your carbs, do the long slow distance cardio thing for 40 - 45 min a day, 10 - 12 exercises for 15 - 20 reps, etc.

My answers fell in the range of get some weight training in there, eat your protein with each meal, limit the carbs and up your fat, stick to intervals or sprints for better fat loss etc. Naturally I get the "WTF" stare, at times like these I am happy I have a beer in my hand so I just finished it off and headed for the door.

Intervals for better fat loss? Have you read the latest research? By this I mean actual research, not internet hype.

I'd like to see some research done with people adapted to high carb vs. high fat diets and the effect of interval training on such.

As far as I know there's nothing out on that yet.

What would be the point of such research when the results would be entirely predictable? I mean even Phinney conceded in his paper Ketogenic Diets and Physical Performance that "anaerobic (ie, weight lifting or sprint) performance is limited by the low muscle glycogen levels induced by a ketogenic diet, and this would strongly discourage its use under most conditions of competitive athletics".
