the folowing link FS/WS deals with losing weight. what I read in the link flies counter to what is being promulgated here on the message board.

why can't the nutrologists and the doctores get in agreement with what type of diet is best for the human body?:bangin:

Franklin, thanks for posting that article. I found it interesting and helpful. I think the key message is the same, but the route might vary a bit. ie. eating grains rather than more veges.

Jimmy Yeh 01-26-2007 09:26 PM recommends eating a lot of carbs to lose weight?

It touts the USDAs stance on high carb diet, which is what they have been selling to an ever widening American public. If you took out grains and just stuck to fruit, beans and vegetables I would be more likely to agree with it.

At least they suggest a protein source at every meal, this is probably an improvement over the way most people eat.

Take into consideration this is from "runners world" Lots of the "permanent weight loss" is probably muscle and bone mass!

The article says your calories should be 49% carbs, doesn't Zone prescribe 40%? The "high carb" intake doesn't seem all that much higher.

Assuming, however, that it is combined with exercise (like running) I'm sure this would result in [i]weight loss[/i]. Making sure you keep the total calories down.

Like Craig points out, this is not necessarily the same kind of "weight loss" overweight Crossfitters are likely to be after.

Interesting article though, thanks for the link.
