She sounds like she knows what she's talking about in that clip, doesn't she? Just yesterday I was thinking about that. It's the idea that we can know all about something, yet this something isn't necessarily real or true. There is one thing I'm sure she knows with absolute certainty she will never do (again) - debate Taubes. I mean, Taubes has this knack to make people realize just how ignorant they are when it comes to nutrition and health science (it certainly happened to me with GCBC). Prolly cuz he read it all. Anyways, I get the impression she watched that uber fail we all remember about her, over and over, and realized she just didn't cut it. Not in the content, but in the style. So she practiced, and practiced, and practiced, exactly the same kind of wrong, but due to all that practice, she now sounds like she knows the subject matter. Sort of like an actor repeating his lines over and over with exactly zero understanding of what the lines mean.
Conversely, I watched a couple clips from a genuine scientist lecturing about some weird property of water (Gerald Pollack - EZ water). He actuallly knows the subject matter - he's the lead scientist. But boy oh boy does he sound like he never lectured before. To me, what matters is the content, not the style, though I'm sure a minimum of style helps communicate this content to the audience. But then when it's all style and no substance, like Jillian's, I'd rather watch an actual movie instead.
“I don’t understand. Like, why would anyone think this is a good idea?” Michaels, 44, said in a video for Women’s Health, and she goes on to imitate a keto creator. “‘You know what we need to do? All fat and animal protein!’ No! Bad plan. For a million reasons.”
Euh, like, wut? Keto ain't "all fat and animal protein", it's just low-carb, although "all fat and animal protein", AKA meat, is also keto and low-carb. Bad plan for a million reasons? Mkay, name just one.
In the clip, she says keto "helps significantly to manage your insulin levels (then summarizes how that's a good thing)". That's not a reason for keto to be a bad plan. It's a reason for keto to be a good plan. Try again. She then says "if you're not eating a bunch of processed carbs and processed sugar...you won't have insulin levels that go through the roof". Euh, that's keto. Try again. She says "the foods that we eat are protein, fat and carbs...when you're not eating one of those, you're literally starving yourselves". It's the only part of the whole phrase that isn't nonsense. Cuz she talks about aging, telomeres, epigenomes, "the foods that we eat, our cells, are literally protein, fat and carbs...starving yourselves...and disabling it to function properly". I mean, wut? Anyways, it's nonsense so I can't figure out if it's a reason for good or bad. Euh, try again? Then she goes "ketoe bad cuz...calorie management...calorie restriction...less oxidative stress...better for aging...gives more energy". I mean, wut? Calorie restriction gives more energy?!? I MEAN WUT? "High-fat diets shorten your telomeres at an accelerated pace". Da hell did she get that from, huh? Euh, Ima call BS, so not a reason. Try again. Never mind, stop trying, just stop.
Come to think of it, forget what I said about style. She ain't got any of that either, it's all over the place. I mean, where do I start?
