See what I mean about people trying to defend what they like regardless of what is right in front of them? Baker has deadlifted over 700lbs in competition and at 6'5" walks around at a very lean 240. Not bad for a 55 year old non-bodybuilder.
OK, I deadlifted 800lbs, squatted 950 and benched 525 in a real powerlifting meet during my 27 year of real competition The 800 deadlift was a portion of the 14 World Records I set in my career. I did my best at almost 50 years old I opened up with 700. I retired from the sport in 2007 and I walk around at right now at 260lbs and 5%BF at 6'1", I am 10 years older than Baker is. Trust me, I see the pictures above. I would never want to look that bad. He is in awful shape for being 55 years old. My blood work will also make his look like he needs to be in critical care and mine is judged by a PRACTICING cardiologist at one of the best cardiac care hospitals in America. By the way, I did an incline bench yesterday on chest day at 315lbs for 6 reps after doing a set of 15, 12,10 and 8. Do you think Baker's imaginary lifts impress me? Seriously??? The guy looks sick to me, lean, no sick. I would offer him a sandwich but he won't eat it. Now tell us what you have accomplished Gunslinger? Anything but losing what, 43 lbs? Hard to deal with all of this false hero worship that is going on with you fad diet guys.. Hell....263 free testosterone? If that is what red meat will do to us I am not eating any more. Fuck that! 100 year old men average 360. 125 blood glucose, very high A`1C. No thanks I have seen what diabetes does to people as they age, nothing like going blind or losing a limb. This guy Baker is like the pied piper leading people to the early grave. Good luck to you.
Gunslinger, there are a whole lot of very serious accomplished guys here that have actually walked the walk in powerlifting and bodybuilding. This is why you have gotten such a backlash trying to come off as an expert. I have gained and lost more weight in my time as a real athlete that you will ever see, Never had to follow some fraud or fad diet to do it. You guys are like these damn wannabe crossfitters or the Zone dieters when they came out, flapping your gums about how you know best, the rest are idiots and have to continually shove you life choice down everyone's throats. Yet us idiots who are wring about everything are the ones actually walking the walk in real life while people like you create a façade.
Gunslinger....keep eating what ever you like but this discussion was about vitamins and minerals not this silly fad diet. I honestly wanted to see a good discussion of about this subject not being a part of kissing the ass of this hero you seem to worship. Go start your own threat about the Carnivor diet.
