Close the thread. There is nothing to be learned here.

So is there point other than the op doesn't need to cut carbs to be happy and content with himself?

Re: The only reason I'm going low carb right now is to lose bodyfat (very short rant)

What's the point of this? It's odd that someone who just registered this month would jump right into making a thread of this caliber. Low carb of any kind, Paleo, Zone, etc. are certainly not for me, but that's not to say that it isn't the right way for others. Have someone with celiac disease choke down a few bowls of oatmeal and see what their opinion is of whole grains.

I thought this was someone dragging up an old thread as I just had a massive feeling of Deja vous............ and it was pointless the first time I though I read it.

Well he's getting bashed because he is opening up an invite to do so. Can you guys think of a better way to start something other than "I'll post on the CF boards and say that I love carbs, there is no point to this thread but im gonna tell you guys how much I love carbs, and in the process here is a picture of me showing off my guns, and oh by the way I have to cut down to look really good for something I won't discuss".

You want a pat on the back?

Im not being a jerk by the way, just calling it as I see it.

Zone isn't low carb and Paleo is more about food choice than ratios or quantity.

So people aren't annoyed because he's offering a different view point. They are annoyed because he's ignorant about the topic he's trying to lecture them about.

As usual, Anthony, you nailed it.

Plus, it isn't that I "cannot" learn anything new from a 21 year old kid - but there are a lot of us on this forum who've been on the planet a bit longer, and in that time we've somehow fell OUT of shape. We then realized we needed to get FIT. For a lot of us, we needed a structured program to follow, because the plan we'd been using for many years wasn't working very well.
