    Default Biochemistry of Nutrition

    I am the most knowledgable person in the world about the biochemistry of nutrition. I've had an interest in this topic since I was eight but certainly was too young to know what the topic was really about.

    I began my formal studies in physiology and biochemistry when I was 19. Here, I began to lay the groundwork for what was to come. I remember the summer after I took medical biochemistry at Temple Medical School, I was able to read a book titled Regulation in Metabolism. I read it 6 times that summer committing its pages to memory.

    Then I began to collect the individual research papers on the topics I was interested in. I had a unique advantage after 1980, however, and that was when I realized that the fat and cholesterol theory of heart disease was all bullshit. The advantage? I could study fat. Others didn't bother.

    Then, in the late 80's, I did my PhD on fuel metabolism. As good as that was, I missed so much, because I didn't yet fully understand fat metabolism. The seminal work on the interrelation between fat and carbohydrate use wasn't completed until 1977, a fact that I hadn't yet uncovered.

    During the 90's, after my PhD, I began my serious post-doctoral work on fuel metabolism.

    During the period of 1999-2003 I wrote the most complete and authoritative book ever published on weight control, Ultimate Diet Secrets.

    My underlying interest was still the biochemistry of fuel use. I outlined a book on that subject but held off, thinking it would be far too complicated for the average reader. I was going to put in charts and flow charts about the individual biochemical steps, most of which had been fully elucidated during the last decade.

    It was a comprehensive overview because I found I was the only scientist to have fully overviewed all aspects of fuel metabolism at all levels.

    The vast majority of scientists never did their homework and had a fragmentary understanding of the topic.

    I learned this when I submitted my work for peer review publications and the reviewers tried to question my work. Again, they hadn't done their homework and were not familiar with the extant literature.

    My 12-page rebuttal led to a heart attack for one of the leading exercise biochemists in the world. Shoulda' done his homework. I took him to school.

    Anyway, my library grew as did my insights.

    When the low-carb revolution hit in 2003 and the non-sensical Net Carb idea arose to promote low-carb eating, I decided it was time for my book to expose that. But even better, I decided to use the opportunity to write the book of all books on nutritional biochemistry.

    The hallmark of this book is that I knew the whole history of this topic dating back to research in the 1800's. This was my style for research -- study the whole history so I could see where we had been and where we were now.

    I tell this whole story in Net Carb Scam and the Hazards of Carbohydrates, my 2004 book on fuel metabolism.

    It's fully referenced for anybody who wants to be so stupid to challenge me on the topics and whose willing to do some real homework.

    You need to understand that I have, in my own life, been passionate about the same subjects that all of you are interested in. The difference? I did all the work necessary to get the answers. I've saved you all a lot of time.

    Often, I read people on this forum saying there is no data on such and such. Believe me, every question posed on this forum has an answer.

    In my books, I show the research behind those answers.

    There's no one else even close. No one. Believe me. If you want information, content and answers, then read my books, particularly Net Carb Scam.

    Default Wow, if you said it about yourself, it must be true.

    Carl Sagan was hated by his colleagues too. The difference between you and him is that people in his field, and millions outside his field, knew who the fucking hell he was.

    Default Greg When Your Blowing Smoke and Hype

    Greg,

    You said:

    "I am the most knowledgable person in the world about the biochemistry of nutrition."

    I say prove It.

    "read a book titled Regulation in Metabolism. I read it 6 times that summer committing its pages to memory."

    Hope it was an accurate book and worth the effort, and is still considered so?

    "I missed so much."

    The only reliable and true statement you've ever made in your entire life, aside from curing autism that is.

    "I learned this when I submitted my work for peer review publications and the reviewers tried to question my work. Again, they hadn't done their homework and were not familiar with the extant literature."

    You're right, it's THEM not you.

    "I decided to use the opportunity to write the book of all books on nutritional biochemistry."

    Here's your opportunity to prove it's such a great book. List the medical and nutritional journals where your book is quoted, studies that have verified its accuracy. How about some scientists, researchers, or doctors who are referencing it?

    Here's your chance to man-up and put your money where your fat mouth is.

    Yah because everyone followed what he said. They didn't question his beleifs because they had the same beleifs as him and so did other scientists.

    Default It's all in the book

    In net carb scam he lists all the studies and scientists that prove his point. Why would he post 100 something studies from his book on to the website?

    If you go against the majority of what all scientists beleive you'll always be left out alone even though youre right. It's happened through out history.

    Default Good Thing One Is Born Every Minute.

    Be sure to share your before and after results belaglazov. Should prove very informative.

    You'll find your bank account lost the most in the end.

    Default Yeah, Greg has really gone it alone.

    And only 20 or more years after Atkins, Eades, DiPasquale, Gironda, Stillman, Banting...
