Part of me thinks I should just leave this one alone.
But how can I resist?
Yesterday, I woke up to find a Facebook update from low-carb blogger Jimmy Moore regarding a YouTube video posted by a fruitarian “health guru” to remain nameless.
The objective of this 20-minute video, which based on my experience likely took 5-6 hours to put together, was to put as many low-carb/Paleo bloggers, researchers, and writers on blast (that’s slang for calling someone out in front of a group of people) for their appearances and inconsistencies. In other words, it was a 20-minute shit-talking session bordering on immaturity and self-righteousness. Pardon my French.
Those featured included Gary Taubes, Dr. Loren Cordain, Mark Sisson, Lierre Keith, Sally Fallon, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, yours truly, and a handful of others.
Now, I’ll be honest. The man brought up some very good points, things that even cross my mind every now and then. For instance, I too wonder why so many low-carb leaders and advocates don’t quite appear the part. If fat storage is all about controlling blood sugar and insulin, then what’s up with the double chin and spare tire around your waist?
