Yes, because if you remove IF (which he was one of the first to promote this), the protocol is simply a HIT-based weight lifting routine, with lots of protein and caffeine.

Which obviously isn't...

I'm not defending him or being an apologist for him or his book.

I'm simply stating a fact. Intermittent Fasting is not part of the Lean Gains protocol in his book. It's a separate chapter and he...

Nah he just doesn't have it as part of the Lean Gains protocol. He has a chapter on it, but it's simply another tool one can choose to use if it works for them.

I've read most of it, but some of that seems a bit off. For example, he mentioned the 16:8 part, but it's not necessarily part of the protocol.

But your main point stands.

Yeah, I caught that part.

I was just responding to this part of the post, and should have quoted that.

He has to eliminate anything having to do with Alan from the e-book, and then re-do the hard copy.

He had a lengthy post about it a week or two ago.

It would be akin to the studies done on meal frequency comparing absurd unrealistic amounts (something like 15 meals to 1 meal in a day).

While interesting to a degree, no one eats like that.

A study done with longer rest periods would be interesting though.

The issue of practicality due to workout length will always be there, but it would be interesting nonetheless.

n = 2, n = 4...that wouldn't fly in the biopharm world. That's uh, obviously no way near statistically significant for a "thesis".

He tweeted about it today. He didnít specify who sued him (I wasnít even sure if it was just code for something or if he really got sued).

It sounded like they settled already, but who knows.
