What I love the absolute most is that you fling dogmatic adherence on the LG community, yet they provide peer-reviewed data along the way. Not only that, but there is also recognition amongst the entire IF community that many different methods of IF exist and each has their own merits. Even Berardi has his own ebook on IF, so it is extremely ironic that you brought his name into the fold when he recognizes that there is merit to the many protocols of IF on body composition.
Celorza suggests OP just skips breakfast. Due to a lack of explanation, this was interpreted initially as if the OP should just skip his macros altogether.
It was stated this is a horrible idea. People on the leangains diet puffed up defensively.
The conversation then shifted to applying Diet Y to Diet X while defending Diet Y on Diet Y's terms and scattered across multiple threads in multiple forums.
Celorza came back and let everyone know that he does not, in fact, bulk or ever want to outside of his intial "amazing" newb gains where he started looking too much like a refrigerator at almost 150 pounds, yet he continued to give bulking advice to Diet X using Diet Y principles.
Other people chimed in with various angles along the way, whether on topic or not.
And here you are!
welcome to the big show!
Yes, LG proponents have been providing peer reviewed information to support their claims while ignoring the same when it doesn't apply though the conversation spilled over to multiple threads and it's hard to keep it all organized. I realize Berardi has an IF protocol out there. As the conversation morphed from an evident miscommunication over Celorza's post to a defense of LG and attack of frequent, high protein meals, my stance was that multiple diets work through various metabolic pathways, including IF protocols and I said so many times in many threads on this topic.
The problem is that people attacking a diet that has been shown to be effective for decades from the pros to the joes argued one diets principles as if they are the universal dietary guideline. And they are not.
Let me state directly, IF protocols work. Applying Diet Y principles to Diet X isn't a good idea and neither is arguing from that stand point. You can not prove frequent, high protein meals are ineffective because they are, even if a white coat hasn't put it on paper.
And yes, nutrient timing and TEF are applicable to metabolism and fat loss within the right diet plan. 1000lories, whether split up in to two meals or one will wind up as 900 calories. We then have to discuss nutrient aborption rates and storage but this was ignored completely. While a fasting diet may prime the body to absorb more nutrients in a sitting given hormonal responses, a frequent meal plan will not. That said, various macros ellicit different TEF responses and this is one angle of high protein ingestion.You can eliminate total calories by choosing the right foods to stoke your metabolism through TEF. And studies were posted to show this. You simply ignored the context to disregard them.
And ftr I edited your post for the Berardi link. I can't post them yet.
Oh for crying out loud, we are back to this?
Jesus... Either prove one needs breakfast or move on. Macros to be hit don't require a breakfast to be accomplished. Suggesting he skips breakfast in no way shape or form infers that he should reduce caloric intake.

You already had ad hominem, red herring, and burden of proof. Now, you can add straw man and arguing in a circle to your list of BS arguments.
However, I'll start with a simple science lesson for you since you really seem to be struggling in this department. AAS will skew results; this is not a point of debate, but you fail to realize that this skewing of results completely nullifies any application to the lay population as they push the boundaries beyond what is possible under non-PED usage conditions. My personal usage or non-usage has absolutely nothing to do with this thread.
You also seem to think that meal frequency has something to do with macronutrient breakdown as evidenced by your linking of meal frequency and high protein consumption, which, again, is not something that has been said along the way. High protein consumption is not the same thing as frequent feedings despite your attempts to link them. This protein consumption and subsequent TEF has absolutely NOTHING to do with this thread. At no point was macronutrient breakdown ever discussed until you decided to throw the thread in that direction in an attempt to use that to prove the merits of frequent feedings. In addition, you seem to really misunderstand nutrient timing and it's application to the non-endurance athlete population and how using these principles as attestation for your position actually works against you, but insulin sensitivity, GLUT-4, etc. would again steer the conversation into a different direction beyond the scope of the thread.
I thought we settled this already
Instead of addressing diets utilizing TEF values and frequent meals, we largely ignored them as irrelevant to leangains, which of course they are. But then we bring them up from left field to win an argument about leangains, effectively recycling the application of Y to X on Y's terms though nobody is denying that leangains works.
Texasguy, you argue like my wife. That is not a compliment.
Ladies and gentlemen, Leangains is the only diet you will ever need. Throw out all the rest and the corresponding success along with them. Buy Rodja a chicken dinner but not eggs at breakfast.
Absolutely do not do what people who have accomplished what you want to accomplish did to accomplish it. Just fast and use PES products. This is the magic equation we've all been seeking. Nevermind the myriad of variables and real world success found with other diets. Actual results don't matter.
As far as logical fallacies are concerned, a shifting premise isn't a legitimate debate platform to begin with.
Oh ya, if you follow a low carb/high fat diet, don't be afraid to add rice, oatmeal, dinner roles and honey buns to your daily meal plans, evidence supports high carb diets too so it's cool. Studies show high carb diets won't necessarily make you fat and that's all you need to know. We will ignore application altogether though, because that would be an illogical tangent.
Leangains! Leangains! Leangains!
Someone saying that breakfast is not needed and can be skipped =/= telling everyone to skip breakfast. Do whatever you want, just drop the bullsh1t that everyone must have breakfast and eat every 3 hours, since it is a debunked myth. That is all.
And would you like some cheese to go with that?

You see what's funny about this thread, is that I earned a fan club for one day of acting like this...and this guy has been doing so for the past week and nope, no groupies yet.
Fridge, you are doing something wrong bro!
