    It's The Wooo

    Post by chris c on Wed Nov 16 2016, 22:02

    If you read many blogs you will probably have come across It's The Wooo. She can be sharp and sarcastic, especially when dealing with the likes of Stephan Guyenet who believes insulin makes you slim and did a 180 on most of his previous views when he became a professional researcher, even to the extent of cancelling a lot of his earlier blog posts and all the comments (sound familiar?)

    Anyway it look a while to get around to reading her own blog, she's very wordy but quite brilliant.

    Except for the obesity this post pretty much explains my past

    Yes agreed.

    So many of the Old Guard have more or less stopped posting (Eades for example) and some have gone quite insane (Guyenet), some were always insane (Carbsane, Nikolei) but there are some excellent replacements.

    Eades does post on twitter occasionally but having devoted lots of his time to the cause maybe he's decided it's time to sit back, Briffa was another he wanted to spend more time with his family and who can blame him 

    Totally agree about Carbsane and Nikolei both completely off their rockers Ally would fit in well with them, not forgetting my old nemesis phoenix for she was fan of carbsane

    Agree Carbsane and Nikolei both stark raving mad, but Nikolei used to write some thought provoking stuff. I went off him big time, when he put forward an argument a 17 year old girl was asking to be gang raped and beaten up. Both of them have a chip on their shoulders the size of a house. What makes it worse, is they have no cause they are fighting for, other than their own self aggrandisement. Nikolei used to be Paleo (when he was flogging books) he used to be low carb, I suspect he used to be a lot of things.

For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Yes agreed. He and certain others are *against* things while being *for* nothing.

    Money quote from Wooo

    "Nigel I absolutely will throw the baby out with the bathwater if the baby is nothing but a hollow plastic doll that we are all treating like jesus christ in the manger at nazareth. "
