The NPR story you posted is just one man's opinion on a complex system and how it functions. The NPR site says, "In his new book, Good Calories, Bad Calories, author Gary Taubes challenges widely held beliefs about the healthiest ways to eat." He challenges widely held beliefs. Mel Gibson also challenged widely held beliefs about whether or not the holocaust occurred. It doesn't mean he is right. Gary Taubes did not study biology, nor did he study physiology. He is a physicist
by training. He does not hold an M.D. He is not exactly a qualified expert on the subject. My professors are paid to research the human body.
Tendons can do a lot of work. I don't think you understand how slim some girls are. Probably because your sister resembles some sort of land-whale. I'm sorry its hard to wrap your head around the idea that there are girls thinner than your sister.
I'm not surprised as she probably takes exercise advice from you. I don't really think someone is in "great shape" if they can't even do a single pull-up.
How can I be jealous of someone who cannot substantiate his claims about his body with any sort of proof? 25 pullups is nothing. For your information, I have 600lbs of SHEER MUSCLE. I have accumulated massive debt from my university for breaking hundreds of pullup bars. They couldn't withstand the thousands of reps I did. I think you're the jealous one. Jealous and buttmangled.
Zacchaeus was a wee little man
And a wee little man was he
He climbed up in a sycamore tree
For the Lord he wanted to see
And as the Savior passed that way
He looked up in that tree
And He said, "Zacchaeus, you come down!
For I'm going to your house today
For I'm going to your house to stay"
