Heads up everyone.  I’ll be speaking along with over a dozen others at a big online weight loss summit that you can sign up to listen to by clicking HERE

It starts in just a few days so get signed up soon.  It only takes a few seconds.  Should be a great interview.  I’ll be talking about weight set point and the most likely ways it can be altered downward for the only type of fat loss that counts, lasts, and doesn’t come with tons of collateral damage.

  1. I'm excited about this. I just found some interviews Skinny Vinny did like this a few years back of some of the latest greatest minds in exercise, including Abel. Gonna have a refresher course I reckon.

  2. Where are those skinny vinny interviews? the ones on youtube? He mentions Abel by name or what? Lay it on me Lawrence.

  3. Calm down. He did something just like what Premier Summits is doing. He was the interviewer and streamed the interviews for 24 hours {I was probably the only person to download EFOOT (every friggin one of them)} He interviewed Abel as well as Eric Cressey, Mike Robertson, John Berardi, Chad Waterbury, etc, 15 or so total, 60 mins each. I can upload em or email em to you so you won't have a stroke.

  4. I see I see. Kevin Gianni does this kinda Tom Foolery as well. I will definitely be listening to T. Colin Campbell vs. Sally Fallon in debate format though. Cream dream.

    Yeah, I'd love to hear Vinny and Scott, even with the Canadian accents.

  5. Hey Matt. FIrst time comment from me. Loving your blog man. Some really fascinating, thought provoking stuff you got going here. You've opened my eyes up to a whole new paradigm – and i've been studying nutrition for years now.

    Just signed up to the weight loss summit on your recommendation. Also payed up for Gianni's Great Health Debate which looks like its going to be freakin awesome. Looks like there's gonna be a lots of nutrient rich health edumincation to sink one's teeth into in Febuary.

    Hey Johnny, I can't tell you how grateful i would be if you were to upload those audio's. We could maybe do a swap if you want?

  6. Thanks Katty. Yeah Campbell vs. Fallon 2011 is gonna be a smackdown. Hilarious. Campbell will be all "if you eat liver you will die of sudden cancer" and Fallon will be like "if you don't eat liver you will die of sudden cancer."

    Actually, on second thought, it might actually be really lame.

  7. Campbell "vs." Fallon?

    I'm sure it will be FULL subtle and nuanced discussion…

    An american gladiators type showdown would at least be entertaining tho.

  8. Yeah, mama Sally would whoop T.'s ass in hand to hand combat.

    That's an even better idea actually – rounding up various health gurus and pitting them against one another in cage matches.

  9. I want to see Durianrider versus Aajonus…

    Reply
  10. I wanna see Aajonus eat Durianrider like a giant snake eats a large animal.

    Reply
  11. That's hilarious Matt. I bet that Aajonus would do it if he thought he wouldn't get in trouble. His followers would probably do it too if he told them that it was healthy.

    I'm going to start a petition to add another O to Oprah's name. She really needs to be referred to, particularly with her diet and body-loathing misadventures, as…

    Ooprah

    Whaddya think? Does that need an "s" in there too or does it get the "oops" point across?

    Oopsrah just doesn't look right.

    Maybe Blooprah.

  14. Matt,
    I'm listening to the summit, and just wondering your thoughts. I'd love to hear your feedback on the other speakers!

  15. I'm not listening unfortunately. If something comes up that interests you we can certainly discuss it here. Just let me know.

  16. Today the guy talked a lot about doing a 'whole body cleanse'. Are these ever a good idea?

  17. I just came across some of your videos Matt on You Tube. I also listened to your presentations on your website. I am impressed by how you sound and look. You look healthy and sound like you know what your talking about. I am just curious where you differ from the Atkins Diet. I just this week have started reading the latest Atkins Diet book I downloaded on my iPhone. I had tried the Atkins Diet about 10 years ago, and my body felt better then it had in a long time. I did run into a problem where I got to a point where I stopped losing. I am curious about your book, just not ready to spend $40 at this time. I may when my budget can afford it.

    No, that stuff is just voodoo mostly, and a good gateway "drug" into an eating disorder if you ask me.

    Ray-

    Very different from Atkins. No carbohydrate restriction for starters, and the main focus is raising the metabolism not lowering it like Atkins admitted was a result of his program.

  22. Okay, I am listening to the summit day 2 with Kelly Stallings. She is talking about changing your habits to make healthier choices and to allow yourself to have the "naughty" foods, but only every once in a while. Basically, it's eat less and lose weight, eat less forever and keep the weight off.
    Matt, I'm pretty sure what you are going to say will be very different compared to most of the speakers.

    Okay, the lady just said that you should always share an entree when you go out to eat and you should not be embarrassed about it, but then the guy said that being overweight is what should be embarrassing (or something like that.)

  23. VIDA,
    you said
    "it's eat less and lose weight, eat less forever and keep the weight off"

    good luck to anyone trying that …lol sheez it does not take much to become an expert these days …

    I wouldn't share an entree with an ant … fat gain is a normal body reaction part of it's function which would happen to anyone in the same situation should you be embarrassed to sneeze too ?

    thanks for saving me from listening ….I would probably have become dumber

    you might want to read his free E books ( i think there is 3) to get a little idea of what it i matt has to offer in his writing. It will most likely have you looking at Atkins in a new light.

  27. I just got your book and had a couple of questions about PUFA. My relatives were coastal Irish and depression and alcoholism runs in the family and I have been taking cod liver oil for epa and dha since I have heard that it is necessary due to probably not being able to make my own. Also I have taken evening primrose oil and find it gets rid of menstrual cramps for me. I eat butter and saturated fats too and avoid other omega-6 oils and was wondering if you think that I should avoid these supplements or if smaller amounts of PUFA are ok for metabolism. Thanks!

  28. Actually I did download Matt's free ebook onto my iPhone. I am about half way through reading it. I am also reading The New Atkins For The New You. I can't find the original Atkins book I bought and read over ten years ago. From what I read it sounded very similar to the Atkins style of food choices and body reactions. I am not sure if any one has heard of Joel Fuhrman M.D. And his book Eat To Live which is almost a complete opposite of Atkins. The only similarity is that they both warn on staying away from SUGAR. They both claim to lower blood pressure and reverse the symptoms of diabetes. After much contemplating this past Monday I starting reading as much as I could about dieting as I could. That is where I came across Matt Stone's videos and website. I was struggling along for weeks on my present diet. I was feeling achy and drained of energy and in fact gaining weight even though I was watching my calorie intake. I would get terrible food cravings every night too. So I read Matt's weight Phylosophy and it sounded so similar to Atkin's.

  29. Anonymous – Small amounts of Evening primrose and epa and dha supplements are fine. It's megadosing I have a problem with. 1t or 2 will do ya. I doubt fatty acids have much to do with your issue though.

    Thinking meat and fat is okay doesn't make one like Atkins. I think a low-carb diet is extremely dangerous. I like Joel Fuhrman a lot, especially when he's not being overly vegan in his convictions. I would agree with this Furhman quote wholeheartedly…

    “You may already know that the conventional ‘solution’ to being overweight – low-calorie dieting – doesn’t work. But you may not know why. It is for this simple yet much overlooked reason: for the vast majority of people, being overweight is not caused by how much they eat but by what they eat. The idea that people get heavy because they consume a high volume of food is a myth. Eating large amounts of the right food is your key to success…”

    If you eat based on my diet beliefs the only difference is the preference for saturated fat over polyunsaturated, the incorporation of more fat, and no meat phobia.

    Read my Fuhrman diet aftermath and see what you think…

  30. I read your Fuhrman aftermath. Sounds like it made you gain weight. I am curious what you find dangerous about low carbohydrates in the Atkin diet. I don't see where the carbohydrates are that low even during the Induction period which allows up to 20 grams of Net Carbs a day. After that they increase with each phase through maintenance where you are at your goal weight. Then you can increase carbs until it causes a weight gain.

    Reply
  31. RAYGREEN, Carbs do not "cause " weight gain. I'm doing a little "diet" experiment as we speak with insane amounts of carbs. It is true that following a low carb diet is a no brainer approach to causing fat to burn it is not the best way to do so, primary consequence is a metabolism that does not work quite like it used to…
    diets in general suck, restricting calories is a good way to make your body a better fat storing machine.

  32. “…remember that prolonged dieting (this one [meaning the Atkins Diet], low-fat, low-calorie, or a combination) tends to shut down thyroid function. This is usually not a problem with the thyroid gland (therefore blood tests are likely to be normal) but with the liver, which fails to convert T4 into the more active thyroid principle, T3. The diagnosis is made on clinical ground with the presence of fatigue, sluggishness, dry skin, coarse or falling hair, an elevation in cholesterol, or a low body temperature. I ask my patients to take four temperature readings daily before the three meals and near bedtime. If the average of all these temperatures, taken for at least three days, is below 97.8 degrees F (36.5 C), that is usually low enough to point to this form of thyroid problem; lower readings than that are even more convincing.”

    -Robert C. Atkins

    Diets never work out the way you think they will. If you lose weight restricting something you have to continue restricting it for life to keep the weight off, if you can even keep it off, which few do long-term. And you can't do 20 grams carbs per day or even 100 grams carbs per day and get away with it forever. Eventually you crave more carbs, get bored with the diet, or have to eat carbs to overcome health problems (like I did). And when you do, carbohydrate metabolism and digestion sucks, and the aftermath is a bitch…

    Just like cutting fats and meat out of Fuhrman's diet does the same to you but with f'ing up your ability to burn and digest fat and meat properly.

  33. OMG
    dude, I would pay cash money to see Ajanous try to digest that skinny jerky like body of d. rider!
    Love it!

    So what is your current ratio of macros for us old ladies who have no friggin hormones but the evil E? I am doing about 50% sat fat, 20% carbies and 30% protein, give or take 10% on the fat/protein ones. Am I in the ballpark or do I need more carbs less meatage?
    Love you
