Layne loves to call out psuedo scientists and conmen in fitness, then starts sprouting sh*t like "carbon takes out the guesswork"

What a hack

Layne loves to call out psuedo scientists and conmen in fitness, then starts sprouting sh*t like "carbon takes out the guesswork"

What a hack
His app is one of the best on the market..it does some pretty cool things with calculating calorie and macro changes based on user inputs each week. Implements keto diets really well which can be hard with protein levels so easily knocking people out of ketosis. Definitely a step above compared to something like MFP.

I'm all for throwing sh*t at people but Carbon would be my first choice if trying lose weight without a coach or much background in nutrition.

The dude is a dick to people online but he has some excellent content, his chapter on keto in Fat Loss Forever (was doing the rounds on reddit for a while) with D'Agastino was really well written.

Fair enough, but that kind of marketing spin would send him into a white hot rage diatribe if it was coming from one of his 'opponents'. Just seems very hypocritical.

I'm not seeing it man. He is all about diet flexibility and evidence based practice and his app doesn't have any conflicts with this. I've been on bb.com since 2002 when Layne was Str8flexed and going through grad school and he hasn't changed his message a whole lot that entire time.

His app is entirely designed to take the guess work out of making week to week macro and calorie changes based on goals and regular check ins - it's not being hypocritical to make a claim like 'taking the guess work out'

Layne gets in pointless wars with the likes of Fung, Tao, Sissen, Baker, Mikhaila Peterson etc when they make claims that aren't backed by a solid amount of analysis and are unwilling to make concessions. He never seems to be overly concerned about somebody marketing a product, and I give the example of D'Agastino of being about as keto as anybody having a whole chapter in his book and promoting exogenous ketone products and that's because of Dom and his message about where keto fits overall in nutrition.

But jesus he is a whiny b*tch if they make claims that oppose what seems to be his sh*t test like

- Equated for calories and protein does it have a metabolic advantage (which gets LCHF/Keto responses)
- No evidence that nutrient timing has an impact on fat loss (IF crew)
- Adherence to diets is poor, if the diet isn't suited to the long term then more likely to fail so make sure the diet is a good match for the person even if it isn't the absolute ideal (Vegan, keto, IF)
- That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

All I'm saying is that diet is a pattern of eating and not a religion, Layne has a penchant for getting triggered to sh*t the moment somebody tries to schill something that doesn't pass the sniff test but you won't see him going after other coaches or vegan, carnivore cookbooks, IF apps or some sh*t.

I don't pick sides on this stuff, I'm in allied health and did some of the sports nutrition (under Glenn Cardwell) and human nutrition electives during undergrad as well as seeing the work that SLP's and RD's do with degenerative brain conditions, renal etc on a daily basis - I don't have a side, I just like keeping an eye on the latest things that are going on.

I completely agree. The guy is a massive flog. He's a centrist and right most of the time. But he doesn't allow for much reading between the lines which annoys the piss out of me. Just because we don't have data on something doesn't make it false, it means we haven't investigated it yet.
