Carb Backloading is Wrong

A pretty interesting happening in the nutrition world, John Kiefer, the guy who created the whole carb backloading/carb nite diet recently admitted that he was wrong. Pretty gutsy to stand up and say something he believed and preached for so long is actually incorrect. I know there have been various threads around here on carb backloading so this might be of interest to some.

Interesting, wanted to watch that interview a few days ago and then forgot due to lack of time.

He said he was wrong about it (carb backloading) being "best" for fat loss.

IMO that does not mean it is wrong in its roots; timing carbs around workout to replenish glycogen as I've also read Lyle's work on it and he uses same principle in one of his book.

Kind of. Not sure which book you are referring to but if it is UD2 then it more has to do with going through a depletion cycle to a non depletion cycle instead of timing your carb intake around your workout or during specific times of the day.

So, Original Snake-Oil™ didn't work but New Improved Snake-Oil™ will be awesome?

I really don't understand why people listen these scam artists. <sigh>

Snake oil is quite profitable

Listened to podcast. Cant wait for his book.

His "theory of everything" sounds intriguing, pretty much what I have been experiencing/learning, but I hope it will be backed with proper science as he promises.
