I was reading Jimmy Moore’s blog http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/, the other day. He re-posted a column by a personal trainer who was critical of the low carb lifestyle. In the column the author implied that one could not be athletic or build muscle following a low carb regime. I am well aware that there are varying thoughts on nutrition. It is NOT an exact science. However, when a self proclaimed expert wants to deride others without genuine facts and information it makes me a little irate. I hastily took some pictures to demonstrate how exactly incorrect said author is:
I do not have the conceit to believe that I am at all where I want to be. I am still about 6 months from being in the shape I am shooting for, but I invite you to check out my 340 pound photos from March of 2008. I think I have laid to rest the myth that you can’t build muscle or be athletic on a low carb lifestyle.
Also, today I am listening to Rush Limbaugh talking about losing weight. He is claiming that exercise is not necessary and that he has lost weight before. I think I remember a similar tirade about a year ago. Watching his CPAC speech on television it appears he was not successful last time. He actually made the claim that he wants to lose enough weight so it takes him a couple of years to put it back on. What this big bellied big mouth doesn’t get, is that if he not only lost weight, but became fit— he would enjoy all the stuff he currently does and not ever have to worry about losing weight again. Also if he would get fit it would help his golf game.
I doubt the rotund Mr. Limbaugh would ever read this blog, but if he does I would be more than happy to help him scream from his golde EIB microphone, “I was Fat Then but I am Fit Now!”
