Paralysis by analysis.

Some good points but overall mostly just overthinking.

What is this?

"8. You Can't Build Muscle On A Sub-Maintenance Calorie Intake Diet

It may be a little harder, and it may require a little bit more know-how and a little bit more conscientious effort, but it can be done. The fact is, the obese state in humans and animals is not universally correlated with absolute levels of caloric intake and neither is the accrual of lean body mass. The ability to realize changes in lean/fat ratios is regulated by components of the automatic nervous system working in concert with several endocrine hormones; this is called nutrient partitioning.

For example, certain beta-agonist drugs like Clenbuterol increase meat production in cattle over 30% while simultaneously diminishing bodyfat without increasing the amount or composition of their feed. Other drugs, including growth hormone, certain oestrogens, cortisol, ephedrine, and IGF-1 are all examples of re-partitioning agents. All increase oxygen consumption at the expense of fat storage--independent of energy intake.

Drugs are not the only way to do this, however. It's true that a significant component of this mechanism is genetically linked, but specific nutrients, in specific amounts, when combined with an effective training programme, can markedly improve the lean/fat ratio of adult humans. MET-Rx is one such nutrient re-partitioning agent, and several companies are trying to duplicate its successes."

The guy who wrote this is hoping that you stop reading and just buy his product - training program. 

Its mostly a blue pilled article disguised as red pill.

Nothing on bodybuilding.com is ever gonna be a true red pill - it's too mainstream.

Yeah and if you read the comments under their articles the community is so naive and gullible.

Similiar to the t-nation articles - one article says do high reps, one says go heavy, one says deadlifts are overrated, one says deadlifts are underrated, one says steroids are overrated, another says steroids work so natties must use smarter training to make up for it, etc

In the end you left on the merry go round until you finally decide enoughs enough and its time to think for yourself.
