There are a few things that I found interesting in this article. There is other stuff that could be a bunch of hooey. I don't know.

I am interested in what you all think.

Because there is so much stuff out there, and it can be hard to know what's good or not, I follow a couple of rules:
1) Always look for references. If an author says "studies show...." and then doesn't cite the study, the reader has no way to know if the author is truthful or not. Furthermore, the data in a study can be interpreted to support different conclusions.
2) If a study meantions a nutritional supplement, espeically a brand name, you can be sure that's the purpose of the get you to buy that supplement.

This article violates both those guidelines. I found some of the information reasonable and similar to what I've read elsewhere, but without references, I wouldn't base my training on it.

An excellent intro to "Sports and Exercise Nutrition" is a book by that title by McCardle, Katch and Katch.(Williams, Wilkens 2005) It covers the areas touched on by the article in spades and much much more.
