    "did you read the paper, they have this new 3 hour diet, you eat every three hours and the right foods, I might try it"

    I kinda looked at her funny and she said "Have you heard of it before?"

    I said "well, it isn't really a new concept....."

    she thought she had discovered fire or something :o

    Am I the only one who's noticed some of the solid fundamentals bodybuilders have known for years starting to creep into the "mainstream" diet fad/scene/whateveryouwanttocallit ?

    Some of it. I dunno, there is still a lot of misinformation everywhere though. Some obese girl made fun of me today because I was giving advice to someone else about how working out your "core" was good for various reasons and thats why he should do squats/deads/GM's what not. She muttered under her breath to her boyfriend that "core" was the new buzzword, then argued with me later about how cardio makes you feel so much better and weight lifting guys aren't her type. :-|

    if they put it in "women's health" or "Redbook" it must be new and improved!

    who said anything about magical numbers?

    i don't know anything about the "philosophy" they might publish with said diet, but grassroots it's an easy to follow guideline for your average person who would otherwise eat like shit. i think it's a good thing :dunno:

    hey post something about that chris, about the difference between eating all calories in 3 meals as opposed to 6, or eating all calories early in the day as opposed to spreading them out.

    You know how many people are going to go out there now and eat their normal crap every 3 hours and thereby increase their caloric intake?

    the difference isn't that big...

    important meals are breakfast and pre and post workout. everything else is based on personal preferences.

    I am thinking of marketing a new book. On the cover it will say "Calories out>Calories in : The Diet of Millenium". Inside it will be blank. I will make millions.

    You can, as long as you don't eat more calories than you expend, which is more difficult with fast food.

    An older lady coworker of mine last summer tried to convince me of the benefits of the cabbage soup diet. You could eat only cabbage soup and some fruits or something for the week. :ugh2: She was one dumb cunt.

    That sounds like a cleansing diet, not weight loss.
