    By: Bob Ryder

    TNA iMPACT! drew a 1.0 rating for last night’s broadcast on Spike TV. That’s down from the 1.1 the show drew the last two weeks. Ratings are based on data compiled by Nielsen Media Research.

    ecw for the last two weeks has done a 1.2 and a 1.3 rating…tna cant even compete with a one hour show that sucks and ill admit ecw is horrible but tna cant even beat them…how do you people say tna is the best show when it rates below ecw in ratings…give me a break…Total Nonstop Angle is what tna stands for because they focus everything on him….and they make people like aj styles thank pokeom diamonds….what the heck is a pokemon diamond…wonder how much pokemon paid him to say that….

    What’s with the ridiculous warning? I had to laugh out loud. Fats don’t just float around in the bloodstream. They are encapsulated and carried by lipoproteins. It is impossible for any fat, let alone saturated, to “cause red blood cells to clump together” due to their “stickiness”. The only time these lipoprotein encapsulated fats can cause harm is when they become oxidized and turn rancid. Of all the fats, saturated fat is the LEAST SUSCEPTIBLE to oxidization.

    Hm, I’d like to know more about what Oz was saying about “steroids” associated with the belly fat– up until this point I’d only heard about insulin. Don’t get me wrong though, I think Oz is wrong, and this is proved by his dismal failure as Oprah’s personal doctor. Oprah should hire Taubes or Eades- then we’d get a success story that’s in the limelight for once. But no, our society is successfully indoctrinated to believe that eating animals can’t possibly be good, so she’d lose viewers.

  4. Yoshi5020 says:

    Also I hate these 5 minute debates. Why does it have to be a competition? I honestly don’t know why these authors don’t all get together and take the time to compare their evidence, point by point. Couldn’t we reach a conclusion that way? At least they wouldn’t be confused about each other’s opinions and misrepresent them in a debate such as this.

  5. larrygentry says:

    Oz is wrong and he’s trying to protect his book sales. Taubes is absolutely right. Many authors echo what Taubes is saying. Read The Schwarzbein Principle, for example.

  6. SnapeSoul says:

    Christ, this is ridiculous. Nobody is denying that REFINED, SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES (i.e. sugars) are bad for you! This is agreed upon by ALL diets–both the insanely restrictive ones and the more moderation-based diets.

  7. SnapeSoul says:

    You can lose weight on any diet–if the calories you take in are LESS than the calories your body burns. However, is this diet HEALTHY? No…too much cholesterol, too little fiber, doesn’t promote exercise. And carbs are the body’s main (and preferred) source of fuel and energy. The body is not meant to be in a fat-burning state for long periods of time…this diet can ONLY be a temporary weight loss tool, not a lifestyle for permanent weight maintenance and loss.

  8. nismoz31turbo says:

    @SnapeSoul
    The inuit lived their whole lives in a state of low/no carbs. It was a lifestyle to them. Considering they lived their whole life like that and were healthy, that sounds pretty permanent to me.

  9. SnapeSoul says:

    The inuit also lived in extremely cold temperatures that required more body fat stores, and their diet was designed for keeping the weight ON to support their active lifestyles.

    Were you also aware, by any chance, that the majority of inuits died between the ages of 25 and 45? Yeah, didn’t think so. Please do your research.

  10. nismoz31turbo says:

    What time period did the Inuit have that mortality rate? I am willing to bet that in whatever time they had that mortality rate, it was comparable to or better than others of the same time period that had different diets that included carbs.

  11. SnapeSoul says:

    @nismoz31turbo You are most likely correct in this regard, but I am merely indicating that their lifespan was not that greatly improved in comparison to others of the same time period, and that since they died at such an early age, heart disease would not place as great a toll on their bodies. I must admit, however, that even lifespan is a poor indication of diet value alone–as many factors could play into their low lifespan, such as availability of food, warfare, and etc.

  12. SnapeSoul says:

    @nismoz31turbo But, to continue my point, it has been proven through numerous scientific studies that a low-calorie-restricted diet, with an ADEQUATE balances of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and macronutrients has been shown to INCREASE life expectancies in the modern population. And you must admit, your low-carb lifestyles are also low-calorie but mostly low-vitamins-and-minerals, unless you eat a LOT more fruits and vegetables than you do meats–which, honestly, who does that on this diet?

  13. TWCGroup says:

    I’m glad there are actually people with this train of thought still. It takes the demand off of real food and makes for an affordable healthy diet.

    Interesting that you say carbohydrates are actually preferred by our cells. Can you please explain this? What type of foods are you talking about?

  14. norwaydbp says:

    Oz’s ability to dance around Gary’s science, without actually addressing the points he raises, is amazing. Instead of actually answering Gary’s questions about fat metabolism, he simply states correlative (not causative) facts about the Amish, and states “there is no simple answer.”

    It’s tragic that he is one of our “leaders” in pop culture on fitness.

  15. drummerlars says:

    shit gary taubes owns this other clown…. that other guy is drowning

  16. jgraglan says:

    Oz says, “It’s not that simple.” Actually it is. But if it is that simple there is no reason to go out and buy a book, video, whatever.

  17. lazur1 says:

    Oz is a good speaker, -nothing- more.

  18. ReflectionEternal2 says:

    Dr Oz’s only defense is constantly cutting Gary off when he attempts to speak…

  19. Gameboob says:

    omg they wrote that Taubes claims that exercise makes you fat. Come on stop skewing his message, don’t make him sound crazy.

  20. realeyz says:

    Wow… “If you exercise you will just get hungrier” – Please let me at this doofus so I can knock some sense into him. It must be nice when you can make loads of cash by selling books that essentially turning issues like this into simple and stupid semantic arguments.

  21. barryman9000 says:

    Oh MAN! I agree with just about everything Taubes says (I eat primal), but my buddy used to be built and lean when he swam in college. Now he’s about 100Lbs overweight because he doesn’t swim anymore. I would say that swimming (exercising) kept him lean.

  22. scott9805 says:

    The host of this show needs to shut the and let them finish there thoughts!

  23. agustinromanii says:

    get him gary GETTEM!!!! lol

  24. mjxshipton says:

    I’d like to thank that stupid bitch Joy Behar and Mehmet Oz for effectively shutting the guest out of the entire conversation. Excellent work.

    @realeyz Have you read the book or listened to any of his arguments? Clearly not.

    Taubes knows what he’s talking about. “Dr.” Oz does not. READ THE SCIENCE, PEOPLE.
