Article to make you laugh

Discussion in 'Dieting / Supplement Discussion' started by Meaty Portion, Apr 4, 2008.

  1. I think I mentioned this in a thread awhile back; I had read an e-mail where Matt Furey said he quit eating chicken because chickens are weak animals. I thought you might get a kick out of it at any rate.

    Hasn't he ever seen a cock fight, sure chickens are small but those little guys are tough.

    Besides, I read that birds are the modern day descendents of dinosaurs. Matt should be eating strictly bird meat, then he's bound to develop dinosaur like strength.

    BJ Penn mentions this in an interview, that the DNA of the animal is ingested. Chickens and cows are stupid,while a pig is a really smart animal, so it has good DNA.
    This is the same interview where he uttered the famous quote "Burritos are my life," so I think it was before he got serious about his diet.

    I understand this from an animist sort of looking at things. The day before my first muay thai fight I went out to a place that served alligator, cause of its tough hide and all. But then again, I'm a heathen so it makes perfect sense to me.

    The quote in my sig is from Pavel Tsatsouline, and it's so ridiculous, it's funny. Pavel I respect. Fatt Murey is a complete idiot, though, for multiple reasons.

    Matt Furey??? Is there a less credible "nutrional expert" in the world?

    no homo, but ever see that clown with his shirt off? that should be reason enough not to follow his advice.

    in any case he's a complete and total asshat. I mean he actually listens to his wife for fucks sake, can you really trust a man like that?

    I don't know the merit to it, but I've heard that herbivores(cows, deer) are the safest meat to eat while omnivores(pigs, rats, bears) often have parasites and need to be cooked thoroughly and carnivores(Polar bears, alligator) are usually very tough and also need to be cooked thoroughly to prevent trichinosis. If BJ's claim was the case, then I'm sure everyone would be eating poodles and dolphins.

    LOL. True enough.

    Bear, oddly enough, is just fucking nasty. Hunt 'em, sure. Eat 'em? No wise hunter would. And considering their diet, you'd think otherwise. Deer rocks, no question.

    Alligator is a lot like chicken, but I've heard most lizards taste like chicken.

    I used to eat bear roasts when I was little.

    I like it.
    Same with sausage from bear.

    But if Fuery was serious, he'd be eating ants, cause they're the strongest things around.

    Really doesn't make sense...muscle is muscle, no matter what the animal, and muscle is the main component of meat. Some are more fatty of course, pork being a contender for that (or any red meat). As to digesting the DNA...that's kinda silly. DNA is just protein, you break it down into aminos like everything else.

    According to his logic, eggs are the weakest protein source.

    I believe that that red meat is superior to chicken because of its micro and macronutrient profiles, and cholesterol levels. There are experts on both sides of the redmeat/eggs vs othermeats debate. Some say that if your micronutrient supplementation is good and you take enough saturated fats and cholesterol, then it shouldn't make a difference. I am on the other train of thought; that synergy works best of those nutrients come from a single source, sort of like how getting amino acids from several different plant sources isn't the same as getting it from one animal source.

    Yeah, but you have that crazy mountain-bred fortitude. The rest would die from nasty parasites.

    Loalz!

    Pavel is pretty funny, and he recommends deadlifts,kettlebells,one leg squats and pushups, so he can't be wrong.
