comment Suggested Protein/Fat/Carb Ratio?
I believe that the 'maximum quotas' of protein we all hear about refer to the amount that the body can assimilate into tissue. Your body can manufacture glucose from excess protein for general energy as well. The protein quota ideology comes from the carbohydrate centric food pyramid era. Excellent advice though.

@JohnP your exactly right. People are starting to find the link between exccesive glucose in your diet (from carbs) and inflammatory based illnesses like heart disease and high cholesterol. Saturated fat actually helps to LOWER cholesterol. Whenever I hear people talk about the virtues of high carbs and low fat I just have a hand to head moment. Stuck in the dark ages.

The journal articles have been showing that while high protein diet people lose pretty much the same as someone on a low calorie diet, their body composition improved significantly. This is the key to the success of the high protein diet. You keep most of your metabolism pumping/fat burning muscle. Calorie deficient diets lose equal amounts of each. You end up a skinny/fat person with a terrible metabolism on traditional diets.

"Bonking" as you refer to it only happened with me when I was on a low carb program WHILST eating insufficient calories. I now eat my 3000 (50% protein) and I have never felt better energy wise. I don't even need pre-workout drinks or anything before I train.

Wow people still believe that low carb is harmful in 2012? People confuse lowER (in comparison to the carb rich diets of our largely overweight populations today) with the ketone diet (zero carb). There IS debate over the long term effects of a zero carb diet (using ketones as opposed to glucose as the primary fuel source) but not much at all over the efficacy and benefits of a lowER carb diet.

Its a personal hypothesis that is entirely unproven - much like your 1:1:1 theory. I've removed it.

comment Impact of Marijuana on training
"Marijuana is a drug, and drugs are not good for you" - a very useless and nonsensical statement. It implies that part of the definition of "drug" is a substance that harms you. Here is the actual definition "a medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body".

Whattt? Pilates doesn't make you to gain muscle or loose fat but makes you look different? It does not alter your body composition but makes you look different? Ok. I guess the Pilates 'guru's have found another mysterious substance that makes up our bodies. LOL

comment Which one adds to our body fat - carb or fatty foods?
Its well proven. Fat being the evilest of the macronutrients is old science.
