If such an occasion arose in which you found yourself headed into a dark alley surrounded by all manner of experts from the USDA, FDA, ADA, AMA, and various other corrupt, inept acronyms, which five experts would you take with you to defend your position and lay waste to the abundance of bovine feces that is likely to spew from the mouthes of the government's dietary imbeciles?
Personally, I'm taking:
-Robb Wolf. The dude is bright and funny as hell. Even if he's not the smartest guy in the alley, he'll certainly have the quickest wit.
-Chris Masterjohn. I think his writings are excellent. There will no doubt be a need for a pro-Cholesterol Captain amongst our strike team.
-Stephan Guyenet. No dogma, loves studying the brain, and doesn't jump to conclusions. Rationality and conservative science is important.
-Anthony Colpo. Love him or hate him, the guy has minimal tolerance for crap science and nonsensical claims. I'm 100% on board for his debunking of low-carb myths, although I think he could do so in a more cordial manner. Ah well, who cares.
-Denise Minger. Holy aptitude for analyzation and detail, Batman. Denise needs to come just in case any angry vegetarians arrive with weaponized China Study launchers. (Plus, she's cute.)
-Mat Lalonde. Abso-freaking-lutely brilliant. And push comes to shove, if somebody throws a punch, I feel like Lalonde could hold his own in a fist fight.
-Kurt Harris. Biting wit, dry humor, and a no B.S. approach to nutrition -- what's not to like?
