I wanted to give you some top notch information to challenge Anthony Colpo and James Krieger.
James Krieger is the bullsh&%tter, not Gary Taubes. Gary Taubes, as imperfect as his own replacement model is for obesity, is absolutely correct to criticize the 2,000 year old nostrum " eat less, move more" that is no more likely to work today than back then.
Dr. Jeffrey Friedman says that advances in 21 st century medical science will allow is to do much better than reiterate that nonsense. It does NOT treat obesity long term.
James Kreiger uses small sample sizes, short term, cherry picked , obscure studies to support his agenda. They are NOT reputable. Perhaps those two uneducated clowns ought to familairize themselves with the Women's Health Initiative Trial, where it was tightly controlled and very well conducted to ensure patients stayed on their diets.
Women ate 360 calories LESS for eight years. The result? INCREASE in waist circumference and andominal fat.
Those guys are part of the diet industry which exists precariously on false assumptions and false promises.
I encourage all of you to publicly challenge those guys the next time they bully people on other forums with their misinformation or when they constantly criticize Gary Taubes
Dr. Jeffrey Friedman is a GENIUS
. He discovered leptin and is probably the TOP obesity researcher in the world.
Please watch all of his numerous lectures available on YouTube anbd Google videos.
Please read Dr. Linda Bacon's FAQ section where she publicly dismantled Krieger's assertions from a fan boy.
Please read Dr. Linda Bacon's manifesto
Yep, they were embarrassed badly.
Please see my blog where I completely debunk those 3 jokers.
James Kriger can insult Gary Taubes all day long , but that does NOT change the fact that his own advice us WORTHLESS. The truth is science does not yet know how to make an obese person lean and maintain it long term ( decade or more )
The TRUTH is we do NOT know nearly enough about fat cell behavior and regulation .
The TRUTH is we are still figuring this obesity thing out. There are far more unknowns than knowns and real obesity researchers will admit this.
A good scientist works tireless for many years to disprove his own hypothesis. All Colpo and Krieger are interested in is defending their own failed theory. They are the complete opposites of scientists, and they are arrogant and mean on top of it all.
Do not let Anthony Colpo and James Krieger con you. Hold on to your wallet tightly. They only are fooling the lesser educated among us.
I think it's time someone confronted Colpo publicly. I am glad my blog did that and shows him to be the misinformed person he really is.
People , do a Google search of "Dunning Kruger Effect". That's what Anthony Colpo has, as well as delusions of grandeur.
Those 2 jokers are nowhere near as familair with the scientiic literature on obesity and body fat regulation as Dr. Jeffrey Friedman and Dr. Linda Bacon are. There is nothing those Internet clowns could throw at them that they would not already be very knowledgeable about.
I really despise those 2 bullies and their actions , and I hope more people will make use of this information from reputable sources to challenge them.
They are self appointed Internet gurus, nothing more. Their sites make nothing more than good comedy.
