I'm calling BULLSHIT on this one.
Aggressive exercise and calorie restriction? WHAT THE FUCK, DUDE.
I may be no doctor, but this flies in the face of current (and long-standing) Center for Disease Control studies that say for people to lose weight & keep it off long term, they're better off doing it through slow and deliberate behavioral change:
So let's go with anecdotal evidence
Who among you has had any long-term success with "aggressive exercise and caloric restriction"?
Who among you has found "aggressive exercise and caloric restriction" just fosters yo-yo dieting, unhealthy physical and psychological habits, and in the long-term just doesn't work?
And if that's not enough...
Let's look at Dr. H's own body of work -- how well did "aggressive exercise and caloric restriction" work for his Biggest Loser patients who may have lost the weight, but seriously fucked up their metabolism (and their mental well-being) in the process and just gained the weight (and in some cases extra) back?
