Todays rant on the carb phobic, exercise phobic hucksters out there.

My thoughts on the high fat, carb phobic, exercise phobic ‘gurus’ out there. Im sick and tired of hearing people become sick and tired by following these ‘protein powder push’n,  tabacco smok’n, bong tok’n,  MDMA drink spiking, eat crackao for breakfast, say no to fruit cos it will make you obese’ snake oil hucksters that just pretend that healthy & fit high carb, low fat raw/vegan crew dont exist....

David Wolfe & Viktoras Kulvinskas trying to sue the Durianrider!

DW in the Supreme Court of San Diego VK in the federal court of Hawaii. Can you feel the essene love? Are you having the best day ever? Why? Well I put up a youtube [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cnhr-1V7MiI] footage what was ALREADY on youtube. Kulvinskas and I were having an FB chat about calories and his recomendations. He couldnt tell me how many cals was enough for a grown adult male wishing to obtain/sustain fitness. I made that fb chat public on our forum 30BaD. Dont you just love this plastic walmart shamans/essene priests? They both say fruit is dangerous and ‘Doug is out of balance and...

Kurt Harris ‘apples have too much sugar’.

Kurt Harris, just your everyday MD that eats at McDonalds but throws away the 1oz burger bun cos ‘it would make me fat’. LOL! Read the 4th last paragraph on Kurts ‘McDonalds strategy‘ Do these guys have anorexia or what? Dont eat a little bit of grains cos it might ‘make you obese overnight!’ and limit your ‘carb intake to 70g of carbs per day (thats 3 bananas). LOL! I mean this way of eating is NOT health focused cos anyone saying that ‘fruit is pure candy from a tree’ and therefore ‘unhealthy’ is in the same boat as...

What is a paleo diet? What about a primal diet?

I mean maybe Im WRONG! Maybe I dont even know what Im talking about?! This blog has been making the paleo/primal/low carb crew do back flips in the last week. People writing in. Robb Wofe, Sean Croxton, Kurt Harris etc. I even did a LIVE debate with Richard Nokely who is another primal/paleo king pin. Richard Nokely is possibly the fittest paleo/primal guy out there from what I have seen video wise. He was the ONLY guy that dared to a live debate. Sean Croxton, Mark Sisson and the rest, they must have been hunting wooly mammoths with IPad’s in hand cos they declined all offers to step up to the plate with your’s truly. A live debate for those guys is like Barry Bond ringing up WADA to come down and dope test him. 😉 So what actually is a Paleo or Primal diet? Im confused. From what I have read, seen and been told both Paleo and Primal fad diet followers eat EXACTLY the same as a SAD eater. Fair enough. Both Paleo and Primal guru’s, authors drink beer, eat potatoes, have fried rice, eat animal parts, eat chocolate, enjoy bovine yoghurt, eat fruits and vegetables, organic ice cream, do a BUCKET load of supplements and eat steak and eggs as ‘part of a healthy diet’. I think I owe the entire scene an apology. Ive been...

24hr race, lost in a second.

Yesterday at 2pm saw me on the start line of another 24hr solo mountain bike race. The format is: whoever can ride their bike up, down and around the 10km forest circuit in 24hrs takes first place. You can sleep as much as you want, but obviously if your goal is to do the most laps, it is a game of how can stay on the bike the longest and be most efficient in doing so. Not everyone goes out there to ‘win’ outright, but if you get to the start line and do your best, thats what really matters. Anyone that finishes a 24hr race is a champion in my eyes. Only 24hr solo riders know what I mean when I say this. Ive won this exact race twice overall before, once in 2002 and then in 2008. This years race saw ideal conditions. No rain forecast and nice and sunny. My last win in 2008 saw race leader Phil Haugthon get a free ride to hospital with hypothermia as he forgot to put on a rain jacket at 11pm when the storm rolled in and turned the remaining 13hours or racing into more of a battle of rider against mud vs rider against rider. The race actually go harder when my main competition got taken away. It was ironic. So when on the start line, with the...

Tomorrow is the live debate!!

FIRST time in internet history we have a REAL debate with 2 people from opposite sides of the health and fitness fence. Its the FIRST TIME EVER! So make sure you tune in. LOTS of people were disappointed with Kevin Gianni’s recent ‘great health debate’. Many called it the ‘great health mass-debate’. (pun intended). In all fairness to Kevin, he was interested in hosting me vs Sean Croxton but then Croxton had a dummy spit and backed out. Sally Fallon and Mark Sisson dont do live debates either. So you have all the trash talkers but when it comes to crunch time, they are too undercarbed to step up to the plate, keep their cool and share what they believe in. Sad. Steve Prussack jumped on ship and Richard Nokely stepped up to the ring. Lets see what he can bring. Its fat vs fit. Saturated fat and cholesterol vs high water content, glucose rich fuel. 10 second workouts vs all day and night stamina. 30% body fat vs 5% body fat. Fatty and greasy vs sweet and juicy. Here is the debate link. Its on baby!...

Robb Wolf: Is the paleo/primal diet killing him slowly?

Working in the health & fitness industry for the last 11 years, Ive had the chance to work, train and race with some of the household names in sports. From chit chat training rides with Tour De France winners like Lance Armstrong, Oscar Pererio to having behind life direction changing closed door conversations with world famous coaches that will go ‘unamed’. 😉 Ive worked in big gyms, small gyms and seen a LOT in a pretty small time. Im the guy that pesters people for questions. Im always listening and watching and looking for ways to improve. Todays blog...

Robb Wolf got a gut? How come the paleo bloggers/authors are chubby?

Hey, just cos someone has a bit of a gut DOESNT make em bad people! My Mum has a gut like these fad diet authors and I still love her. Im merely pointing out that these guys have to starve emselves to say half on top of their weight in order NOT to blow out. Sure some are slipping it seems and Loren Cordain and Jimmy Moore certainly are. Nice guys though Im sure. This is JUST physiological assessment. Im sure these guys could squash me if they had enough energy/fitness to actually catch me. Sadly I dont even...

Longevity Now Conference Update.

This is an email I got from a recent attendee at the Longevity Now Conference in Los Angeles. Ive kept it confidential cos the person is scared of being sued by these hucksters. I dont give a fuck cos all they will get from me is a pair of running shoes, a box of bananas and a bicycle so they can get their fat asses in shape! lol! David Wolfe and Viktoras Kulvinskas have already filed legal action against me. They dress, talk and act on stage like guru’s but if you speak up, they sue like Monsanto! Ok,...

When to eat for max life performance.

Refuelling glycogen is crucial in keeping fitness/health/happiness high. Restoring glycogen is crucial in keeping our immune system from crashing. Restoring glycogen is key in staying ‘raw strong’. Restoring glycogen is key in keeping sane!! I NEVER wait till Im hungry or thirsty before I eat/drink. NEVER! Neither should you!! The only time would be if I was caught out and literally had nothing to eat! But these days Im way more organised so I dont ‘bonk/hit the wall’ aka ‘run out of glycogen’. Cos when you do, you really put your immune system under pressure, perform like a chump...

Durianrider in a live debate.

The only person from the low carb, high fat camp that had the guts to do a debate with me was Richard Nokely. Mark Sisson, Sean Croxton, David Wolfe, Daniel Vitalis and Sally Fallon all said ‘No way!’. I dont blame em either! Its like a doped up athlete being asked voluntarily to do a doping test! Why would people that couldnt even run around the block at pace debate with some young punk who aint afraid to ask the questions that count, that is lean, fit and strong and follows a high carb, low fat, plant based lifestyle? I wish it was a live stage debate so I could grab the mic and say ‘ok, everyone lift up your shirts and show the audience what your diet has done for you for the last 10 years!’ lol!. I hear some people say ‘but Mark Sisson and Sean Croxton are in shape arent they? Well all I ever see from these hucksters is old facebook photos vs current stuff that we always put up. I mean ANYONE can do a course of HGH, take some other gear, train up for 6 months and snap a few dehydrated ab shots but to have always new photos up, thats a TOTALLY different story! Ask your guru why they wear maternity clothing, ponchos, baggy T’s or Armani suits. Ask em if its...

Ian Marber-The Food Doctor.

Ive never met Ian and Im sure he is a nice chap. I was sent an article from ELLE UK mag about ‘eating more than 1 piece of fruit a day will make you fat from the fructose’. You gotta have a laugh at that. So I looked up who on earth was writing such fallacy? Ian Marber and Gary ‘fatty’ Taubes. Both these guys say that carbs are the devil and you gotta fill up on fat and animal protein to stay fit, lean and strong. What I find amusing is that 99% of these low carb/high fat...
