Mark Sisson says about me that I do ‘endless miles to stay lean’. I averaged 36km per day in 2010.
Sisson says ‘Carbs make you fat, fat makes you lean and so does protein’. But he says Im lean cos I do ‘endless miles and a high mileage programme. IMHO I dont call 36km a day cycling and 2.7km running (around 80 minutes) a day ‘high mileage/endless miles’!. Sure some months I bang out some km’s but then there is weeks where I have recovery and just chill. That gives me the balance of recovery and fitness growth stimulation. Mark Sisson should know better as he was someone that trained up to 30 hours a week consistently. I dont advise people to train more than 10 hours a week consistently unless they also live the lifestyle that allows em to do that and still get enough sleep/recovery etc.
Mark Sisson said recently in Kevin Gianni’s ‘Great health debate’ “My goal is to LOOK fit, not BE fit!’ . Sounds like an admission of HGH to me. 😉 Look at all the products Mark Sisson sells!!! And he says that a fruit based vegan diet ‘aint natural’. He Mark! Where is the protein powder and the rest of the crap found in nature bro?? Oh thats right, dont question what your getting told and sold. Just sit back and buy more. The great american dream: consume more crap in the hope that one morning you will wake up looking like the HGH abusing guru that sold you the fed ex box of false tries, fish eyes and marketing lies.
Sisson says not to eat more than 150g of carbs per day otherwise you risk obesity. I regularly eat over a 1000g of carbs per day and at 6ft and around 65kg, I wouldnt exactly say Im joining the sumo wrestlers anytime soon. I mean you ever seen a vegan sumo? A sumo that eats low fat, high carb? ME EITHER! Good thing Mark Sisson’s target market is so undercarbed that they cant see this elephant in the living room. I mean he does some HGH shots, takes some diuretics and uses the same few photos from 7 years ago, again and again and people dont question it. He prays on complacent, carb phobic, apathetic, overworked, desperate Americans that have more money than sense and want to hear good things about their bad habits. Basically Sisson’s carb starvation programme involves pig legs stuffed with chicken flesh, crap loads of supplements and frequent visits to paypal to eat this ‘primal blueprint’ fad diet.
Hey Mark: You go on and on about how primal it is to eat chickens and cows but have you ever stopped to think that these animals were not around until recently? Cos you use the same argument against high fruit consumption saying ‘well we wouldnt get much fruit back in the day’. But if your customer base ate loads of fruit then you would be out of business cos they wouldnt need your thousands of $ of yearly supplements that you ‘sincerely advice’ people consume. So consuming protein powders etc is a recent thing vs ‘primal’?
Thats right dude! Its 2011 and its time we started living like humans instead of neanderthals driving porsches and loading fat people up with more fat! Hey Mark, isnt your wife a Vegan that eats a Dr McDougall programme? I was told you went to DrMcDougall’s retreat recently. How come your wife aint fat on all those plant foods? Interesting huh? 😉
Here is the 1 of 4 shots that are on the net. This shot is from a few years ago. If you look at Mark’s recent youtube vids you see him wearing a shirt and just giving a face shot. He doesnt have the low body fat levels/muscle mass that he had in these shots.
Mark obviously doped up to get this shot with HGH, diuretics etc and so these shots from years ago just circulate around and end up on the computer screens of complacent people wanting to hear why they should stay away from cardio and have double beef patties fried in extra pig’s body fat and followed by stevia sweetened cheesecake with extra cheese on top!
I dont hate Mark Sisson but I do hate these sort of marketing techniques that are used to blatantly exploit overweight people that have no idea about health & fitness and therefore cant descern fact from marketing hype like these dudes promote.
This is what he REALLY looks like in 2011. BIG DIFFERENCE! (now Im not making fun of fat people but if your a ‘health guru’ then you gotta expect people like me to put you under the spotlight when your making claims that high fat diets turn you into a ripped, HGH using cave man that spends all day sitting in spa baths with bikini models and eating pigs body fat. 😉
