Re: Anthony Colpo: They are all MAD

I read this a while back. I agree with some of his criticisms against Taubes, but he also didn't touch the vast amount of great points Taubes brought forward in GCBC. My gripe with Taubes is he's the most obnoxious and sarcastic person I've seen give interviews, and aside from his implying exercise plays a small role in weight reduction, I have no gripes at all with his book.

Re: Anthony Colpo: They are all MAD

Scott, were you referring to Taubes or Colpo being obnoxious???

I can't even read AC's remarks anymore. He'll be an easy one to spot why excessive anger causes inflammation and early disease...

I was referring to Taubes. I agree about Colpo, that guy gets quite silly as well. That said, I enjoyed GCBC and The Great Cholesterol Con.

Re: Anthony Colpo: They are all MAD

No comparison. Colpo has some serious issues.

Re: Anthony Colpo: They are all MAD

And I thought I had anger issues...holy cow, Colpo is clinical.

I read both (Colpo and Eades), understand where both come from, and still come out on the Eades side.

Is my data scientific? Probably not, but months of food logs show me one thing...how is it on a 3000 a day diet I was still losing weight? Impossible I tell you. IMPOSSIBLE. LIKE MY FONTS?!?!

Re: Anthony Colpo: They are all MAD

Eades is just very easy to read and seems open to changing his mind if necessary. I think he also has the weight of a lot of clinical experience on his side.

I haven't read any of Taubes stuff, to be quite honest. He'd have to be plain batty to be worse than AC. My opinion of the whole thing is that all of the folks in this interweb MAD debate really like mentally masturbating...it's just not worth it. I hope Eades uses his time to move on to other issues that will benefit people more than this one, and I believe he will.
