You left out the classics such as "I'm not saying they're a bad person..." or "this isn't a hate video..." or "I'm not hating..."

Great video and very important.

So you support a misogynist? Because he's a vegan.

Does Bill Cosby deserve a ton of support for all the stuff he's done over the last 50 years. He made a difference, I mean after all, what's drugging 20, 30, 50 women and having sex with them? Hey and he's a comedian too! (though some of his stuff falls under education)

The point with VG is that he is hateful towards women, and many of his comments in the Blogilates and TP videos showed exactly that. He called Blogilates a "fucking cunt." But hey, they're meat eaters, so what's a little hate? 

I think vegans should go on supporting him, because he's reaching his little audience and everyone's different etc. That's been the excuse for Richard up until this point.

Own him.

Oh yeah, about that compassion thing. meh, right?

And at least it was a human baby he was stomping on, imagine if it was a baby cow or puppy.

You're misrepresenting DR/FL's recommendation. It's not "2000 calories". It's 2500 minimum. They say 2500-3000 calories a day smashing in the carbs. (don't count carbs, but count enough to make sure you're getting 2500). 

DR/FL are very specific that you can.not.gain.weight. on RT4, no matter how many calories you eat which is b.s. And if you do it's "metabolic damage". DR's fond of putting up his blood tests, what are the blood tests and/or markers for metabolic damage?

You also misrepresent how much time HCH spent on RT4 (here's her video talking about going off of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPfZKBh6sFE). She was on RT4 for 9 months, not 5 weeks. The video was made in June 2014, and she just came off RT4 and started it in September 2013. It's not hard to actually check facts from the source.

She was also eating the recommended amount of calories, 2500+ a day. 

Also, on the starch solution, she wasn't calorie restricting and said as much in that same video. She's getting in about 2000 calories a day, eating until she's not hungry. Any more and that's binging. 

Yes, you are saying all the "i'm not picking sides" words, but you are picking sides. In support of RT4 you say HCH's doing it wrong and you imply that she's not eating enough calories right now, both of which aren't true. You claim "they are all the same diet's", then why are you even making a video criticizing her? 

Because the fact is, the trick of the HCLF diet is whole foods. Making a 1200-1500 banana-date smoothie and pouring some cane sugar in is not "whole food".

LOL. Objective? You need to do more than say "I'm objective".

As you said, "based on my own education, knowledge, experience, and opinions."

You have no actual data of Hannah from a nutritional science/medical perspective. You a say "she has metabolic damage." How much, for how long, what are the exact markers for that in her?

Data data data. You need data to be objective. You have none. You have distant observation and opinion, and you are providing objective diagnoses? You're not.

I'm sure you've stepped into a sports science lab. To get accurate data takes a lot of effort.

Then you're going to guess at what her BMR is? That's an actual measurable thing and you made it up.

It would be more accurate to say, here are my subjective opinions on Hannah based on my own biases. That would be honest, and probably more useful.

Schattenparker - as Hans and Franz would say, a schattenparker is a "girly man" a wimp, etc.

Love the announcers on the pitch at :46. Even on the replay they are droning on about  minor league umpires. They sound like they are even boring themselves and can't be bothered watching the game. It's like they're commentating on paint drying.

Good analysis on Lewis. I've been thinking a bit about the scruffiness of Lewis when he's not running from the front - he doesn't seem as sharp as he did prior to the dominance of Mercedes. 

Here's my thought, and it ties in with Vettel - if you're constantly running at the front, you're bound to be less sharp with wheel to wheel race craft just from not needing to use it, except rarely. For a driver like Ricciardo, being in the mid field with STR and now with RBR, he needs to really rely on that race craft to make something happen. 

Anyways, just some thoughts. Talking about Lewis not knowing what Ericsson or Nasr might do reminds me of Vettel in Brazil 2012 -- he doesn't know what the drivers around him would do, and at the same time, they don't know what he'd do.

please actually educate yourself about human evolution. It's not like some unknown thing, like whether there is life after death or something. This stuff is knowable and has been studied by experts.

If you don't want to do the research, then all the other stuff you say is as baseless, since you don't actually use science for anything. ("we should look at what science says" - yes, exactly).

They've recently found that Australopithecus, the precursor genus to the genus Homo, some 4 million years ago, had tools to hunt and cut meat? 

There's also a community of chimpanzees who actually make spears and hunt small animals with it.

Do we need meat moving forward, that's a different question. If I was to solely rely on your take, based on your certainty around your incorrect understanding of evolution, I'd say - don't do what Bananiac does, he doesn't know.

I think the shark was totally misunderstood. He just became a vegan and was excited to share the message with the surfer :)

Excellent point, many vegans talk AT non vegans. They come across as religious evangelists (You're going to hell unless you confess your sins and take Jesus into your life).

Am I just being defensive when I turn those evangelists off? I don't think so.
