This was a table I made for myself to summarize (what I think) James is saying in the article. I apologize and take full responsibility for things I may have misinterpreted, but this was helpful for me and might be helpful for others.

P.S. Not sure if all hormones were really in priority order, I think he just mentioned that the HPA axis was most important.

I may be mistaken, but is this the same stuff that a T-Nation article a week or so ago talked about "skinny-fat/hard gainers"? It sounds eerily familiar. Of course, they may not be related.

Isn't this kind of the stuff that Poliquin talks about as well?

All interesting, but a bit confusing too.

Yeah, this is Poliquin stuff. Some more questions would be: when James talks about supplementation and detox for the estrogen profile, what is he referring to? Detox from enviromental extrogens? What supplements does he recommend?

Poliquins biosignature stuff is one my "to-do" list at some point. Some are not so keen on P-daddy but if you take some of his analysis techniques for nutrition and hormaonal status and couple that to a CF regime...you get folks like OPT and AFT. Interesting, no?

One could certainly do worse. I look forward to his future installments.

Well, I think most aren't too keen on some of Poliquin's training advice rather than his biosignature stuff (although I could see that as well... -_-).

I've been looking around the 'net at some of Poliquin's biosignature stuff and am fascinated. Can't wait for the next installments of James' articles.

I agree with Steven. I am fine and pretty much in agreement (with the limited, yet expanding knowledge I have) with most of Poliquin's nutritional ideas. The training though... not so much.

For anyone interested, there is some stuff on T-Nation that touches on this subject.

Why would indivduals that have millions of dollars and glory to protect keep going back to Poliquin if his training was ineffecive?

He's trained hundreds of professional and olympic athletes.
