"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."
This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

From reading many of your books I have become very familiar with your nutritional protocols which call for 60-70% carbs, 25-30% fat and 10-12% proteins. I also have noticed the many success stories that you have had training clients with this diet. In many cases these clients have increased lean mass and lost fat mass. However, I have done a lot of reading which suggests that carbohydrates are the main reason why so many people are overweight. Much of the reading I have done says how carbs are the cause of increased fat due to how they influence the hormone insulin in the body. It has been mentioned that higher fat diets allow the body to increase fat burning as this will be the main source of energy for the body when carbs are restricted. It seems logical as the higher fat diet would allow the body to use much less insulin. However, I am a bit skeptical of this approach. Is it true that higher carb diets such as the one you choose would cause insulin to pack on too much body fat and limit fat burning? I bring this post up because every where I look there is conflicting material on nutrition and I have no idea what to believe.
