Small, frequent feedings combined with short, intense exercise sessions - Wow, what a REVOLUTION! Granted the article recommends "pulsing" with whey "meals" (20g doses every 2 hours) then a meal at the end of the day - The idea is very similar to the Pulse Feast that was produced here months ago... And that idea is really not THAT different to the way BBers have been eating for ever (small, frequent feedings)

Just train and "eat right" and you will live a a good physique and a good life (provided you dont get T-Boned by an 18 wheeler)

Wait.. I shouldn't try to build muscle now because eventually I'll just lose it anyway when I'm older?! Geez! Thank goodness someone stopped me in time. Now I can go find other hobbies.

"The combination of intense strength training with frequent meals and a high protein and calorie intake seems to grant muscle gain. Nonetheless, this regimen may come with a price? Inferior muscle fiber quality.

Yes, a big muscle isn't necessarily a better muscle."

Blah blah blah.. big muscle are not functional..blah blah

Okay, here is a bit of a more serious look at it. Ori has been espousing that type of eating for YEARS now ("The warrior diet", it has been written about on here many times) I'm sure it works fine for a variety of goals, but here are my basic thoughts on it:

1 - It lacks widespread acceptance and "testing." for Body Building purposes. Executed correctly, the stanadard BBing diet (high protein, good carbs) is basically fail proof and I'm just not willing to try some off-the-beaten-path idea that might produce the same results. Having said that, CT seems to eat this way and claims to have been doing it for years and his results are obviously nothing short of impressive.

2 - I give absolutely ZERO credence to any idea, at this point, that claims to "reverse aging" or "turn back the clock 30 years" on muscle and tissue... This type of claim is a massive red flag. I guarantee Ori will kick the bucket at around 80-100 just like the rest of us, there will be no "turning back the clock" Benjamin Button style. (I know that's not the claim, just having some fun here)

3 - To the best of my knowledge, "western" diets are not unhealthy because people are eating small, body builder style meals every 3-4 hours (instead of fasting for the majority of the day), its because people are eating massive quantities of shitty food, drinking shitty fluids, and not exercising. ANY change in this kind of eating would be a step in the right direction health wise... So if you are living off McD's and Burger King, of course switching to a pulse-feast style eating plan will be a positive step
