Default New DJ article

http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=1537190

Dan's take on something a lot of us probably think about:

-the value and challenge of sifting through lots contradictory expert opinions and then sythesizing and applying what was learned.

Lot of what seems to go on here. Case in point: last check there were at least five people here giving IF (as goofy as it sounds) a shot, just to see what happens.

SHUTUP. You know nothing. We are not "goofy" for trying IF.

Sorry, I get a little cranky in the middle of the day in a fasted state.

I enjoyed this article, as I do all DJ articles. I e-mailed Dan with my comments as T-Nation now requires a separate thread after each article.

good article as I totally agree...way too many books...way too much information...so little implementation by the general public.....people need to stop reading diet books and start reading books on how to take action and accomplish daily goals....they would get more done in life....

Oh wait...a new website with a secret ebook to ultimate fat loss and strength just came out...must be new up to the date information never discovered....and he's a self proclaimed fitness expert....where's my credit card.....

I can't speak for you...nevermind I'll speak for you. IF just seem goofy. I'm doing it, I know why I'm doing it but when I try to explain it I can't. Plus, I'm so f'ing hungry right now.

Hmmm....Dave, this sounds interesting. Are you available for a private consultation so we can discuss this more? Your main points are a little fuzzy and I'd like to clear some things up.

I am writing my new self help diet book called "Yes it is your fault you are fat".....my chapters are:

Chpt 1: Accept it
Chpt 2: Get off your ass and do something about it
Chpt 3: Repeat Chpt 2

I expect rave reviews.....although my guess is most never get past Chpt 1....or maybe I should called it a "secret" or something and use marketing hype to hit them over the head with something that has been stated a million times before....wait...I think someone already did that....

Next book for kids...."Why Mommy and Daddy are killing you with sugar"...an animated series....
