True, I'm sure. But there's some bonafide knowledge there. It's one of those odd balances where you can't trust everyone with a degree, because they may be selling you a product or a point of view. But you can't distrust everyone with a product or a point of view, cause some of them are actually really knowledgeable. But I do always have my BS-ometer when I read or watch videos, because I know that they could just be trying to make money.

Re: Insulin and LDLs -- Dr. Connelly's CFJ Seminar

I too have a BS-ometer and it did not go off in my entire time of watching this... I do agree with the notion that he is not pompous about his knowledge. I hope that Dr. Connelly makes an appearance at the CF games so that I can shake his hand.

Re: Insulin and LDLs -- Dr. Connelly's CFJ Seminar

Can anybody summarize some of his points for me? I plan on watching the video, but I don't have time right now.

more protein, less carbs. shoot for over 200g Pro, under 200g carbs.

This doesn't really do the video much justice. Yes, these are some take away points but it must be said that giving a summary is quite difficult as Connelly certainly isn't a "summary" type of guy.

Watch the video, the best summary is the title: 'Insulin".

If that's meant to be general advice applicable to everyone it's actually dumber than The Zone Diet.

It's actually fantastic advice if you are selling protein powder.

Taken out of context it sounds like a silly prescription, but he said that was what he told people who were basically doing nothing and eating a SAD. He realizes that it's more complex than that. His comment, as far as I gathered, was that you might not make 200g of protein, but you'd get a lot fuller that way while keeping carbs limited. I don't think it's fair to assume just because he's selling something that he's lying or doesn't know what he's talking about. A listen through the videos would be a good start to discussing/criticizing his opinions. He spent all of 5 seconds discussing macronutrient rations and another 90 min discussing disease risk factors, hyperinsulinemia, etc.

That's why you only really see evidence of it during clinical trials where there's deliberate massive overfeeding.
Wow.

OK, one question, what are typical one day energy requirements then?

I've found I can maintain weight/bodyfat at around 200-250g of carbs per day (at roughly 200 pounds and a high activity level). And below that, I tend to lose/burn fat.

So does this mean I could eat 800-1000g/d of carbs for a week before I start adding fat? That seems very hard to swallow (pardon the pun).
