  1. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAoTsaTXxb4&feature=player_embedded#]YouTube - Leroy Colbert Speaks about The Lies of Protein[/ame]!

    oh look someone who actually knows what they are talking about!
  2. awesome video. i hate when people who don't know what they're talking about try to "correct" me
  3. lol that dude is fuckin badass.

  4. Check out his channel hes got tons of awesome videos. The Men vs Women ones are awesome he owns the fuck out of some dumb women.
  5. Thanks for sharing this video man, very helpful to me in clearing up some things.
  6. Lmao how many times did he ask for just one world class athlete that is a vegetarian?

    I guess he wasn't watching the olympics when Carl Lewis won 9 gold medals haha

    And last I checked Bill Russell, the most decorated big man in the NBA was veg

    Not saying this guy dosn't know his shit when it comes to lifting, but he is old, and new concepts and ideas just don't get through to old people
  7. Prince Fielder, major league baseball player, is a vegetarian.

    Tony Gonzalez, NFL player who will be a first ballot Hall of Famer, is also vegetarian.

    Just 2 I can do off the top of my head; with that said, I fucking love meat.
  8. ontop of all that; i find that the protein from meat is useless. More than half of it is fat. Other apes are ridiculously stronger than humans and they don't eat meat.

  9. oh yeah complete proteins from meat are totally useless...


    they arnt stronger than us because of their diet.
  10. Yeah it must be because they don't eat meat. Couldn't possibly be genetics. As for "more than half of it is fat"... well that's just ignorant. An average chicken breast has a 15:1 ratio of protein to fat. Beef comes in various fat concentrations- it's generally labeled right on the packaging. I like to buy 92% lean steak (meaning 8% fat) to switch up from chicken every now and then. Red meat has valuable creatine in it, which vegetables and starches do not have.

    With that being said, I have nothing against vegetarians. I thought the same thing when I watched the video (that there are plenty of vegetarian athletes). I've yet to find a study showing that vegetarianism negatively impacts athletic performance. However, your post was dismissive and lazy, and that set me off a bit.
  11. i could be completely wrong about this...but...i think he's hinting that we should eat steak guys.:wave:
  12. I'm a veggie, and I get my protein from soy. It is a complete protein, and soy milk is often fortified with other vitamins and minerals.

    As far as the "no vegetarian atheletes" bit, check out Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness to see for yourself. It works just fine =]

    Cool video though, thanks for posting =]
