Results 1 to 10 of Hope you find it helpful with deciding on getting the book. When I was about 11 years old I remember that infomercial sweater guy had a speed reading course on his amazing discovery "show" and I wanted it so bad. Needless to say I didn't get it, but I did learn to read pretty fast anyway.

For anyone not familiar, Alan Aragon was one of the much revered sports nutrition authorities on this board who, believe it or not actually posted occasionally. He was notorious for having the science to back up his opinions. He, like Lyle McDonald and John Berardi, seemed to fall out of favor a bit since the great paleo uprising. But I've veered from the path a while now, and need to get back into gear, and as always what was old is new, and what works works.
I was thinking of buying Precision Nutrition, but it's a decent chunk of change, while Alan's book is half the price. So anybody have this? Any good? Basics of Alan's ideas on diet? Any names you want to call Alan? I'm a carp on a boat, gasping. Gimme a few splashes here. Or in parlance, "Lay it on me, bro. Envy , Oct 6, Joined: Oct 27, Messages: 1, Likes Received: 0. Yeah Aragon and McDonald are great in terms of nutrition. I think Lyle had some things about post workout fat intake that I didn't agree with but he's still the man.
BoxingFan , Oct 6, Alan is a badass. May just have to buy this and be the first to review it. Damn you Alan Aragon, making me pay for your fancy cars, your big bank account, your celebrity friends, your Victoria Silvestedt, playmate of the year By the way, the missing "A" in the title was totally on purpose.
Too many friggin A's in Alan Aragon anyway. Joined: Aug 4, Messages: 7, Likes Received: 0. If Berardi is your first choice, you shouldn't settle for something else Do you find it lacking something? XTrainer , Oct 6, Joined: Dec 27, Messages: 11, Likes Received: 0. I heard the book basically teaches you how to interpret diet research, dieting philosphies, tis etc.

If having the information well-organized and compiled is important to you, paying for this stuff may be the way to go But maybe I'm wrong. XTrainer , Oct 7, Beraedi, for instance puts out free content, such as the 7 habits, then every diet he designs, such as Dave Tate's or the Grappler's Guide sample diets violate half the rules. Alan Aragon talks about carbophobia, and how ridiculous it is, then posts articles on his blog that seemingly show superiority of low carb diets in reducing fat mass.
And Lyle, well Lyle's Lyle. I feel like if I raised my hand in a class he taught, he'd death-glare me into slowly lowering it. Envy , Oct 7, Monger , Oct 7, Very mistaken. I spend tons of time going through Alan's blog info and he's always been of the opinion that low carb diets work At the end of the day, he's not espousing low carb dieting but I can tell you that when it comes to losing weight quickly, draining your glycogen supply and not regularly eating foods that contribute to it's re-occurrence does help you get to the fat losing part of dieting.
That's where the wisdom of low carb dieting comes into play. You can also just as reliably lose weight based on cals in vs. Time and time again, Alan's the guy saying, "Quit worrying about carbs" and that's because in the long run, for folks already fit or folks that handle moderation well, it's all going to net the same result.
However, if you like pigging out on pasta or french fries before bed and you start following a low-carb diet to lose weight and you adhere to it As for Lyle, the man is consistent, possibly a genius and maybe a little narcissistic but then, when you've been preaching grass roots nutrition for years based on research and everyone wants to argue you with you based on bro science, you probably get downright pissy after awhile. Damn, this AARR is the bees-knees!
Now I could stop trolling PubMed every few weeks to see what's relevant, and just use him as a meta-journal! Yay for you Alan! If you ever need a grad student to exploit in your work for only minimal returns and recognition I'm your man!

I'd definitely say it's a good investment if you really like to keep up with research. If I were studying this in grad school, I'd be subscribing for sure. I wonder if Alan has published in peer-reviewed journals??? I did a quick plug in PubMed and didn't see A Aragon's that looked like him.
