Evelyn: go f*ck yourself ~Robb Wolf
You kiss your wife and baby girl with that mouth?
Yes folks, this is the class, professionalism and appropriate behavior we've apparently come to expect from a leading member of the IHC? Below is a screenshot of the Twitter exchange after reading this post: Evidence Based Medicine: Fraud, Double Standards And Ignorance
I shall address that post at some future date, but in it he again sought to attack readers for some lack of reading comprehension on their part, as he's done a few times of late. For example, in his interview with Anthony Colpo, Robb said:
R: Honestly, I think you helped refine folks’ aim when they decided to try to take my head off on this topic, thanks!
It’s funny, for years I’ve talked (via the podcast mainly) how low carb has incredible value for the metabolically broken, but is likely a disaster for the athletic crowd, particularly the very glycogen dependent activities like Crossfit or MMA. I never received ANY push back from that but recently I wrote what was intended to be a two-part series on “My thoughts on Low Carb and Paleo”. The vitriol I received from this was jaw dropping. Friends I have in the blogosphere forwarded emails to me from irate people who were calling me a sell-out and asking how I’d been duped! All I said in Part 1 was that there are and are not appropriate places for low carb. HOW that is selling out is beyond me. So, the two part series became three parts with Part 2 just being a curb-stomp on my part towards the people who either have terrible reading comprehension OR a religious like attachment to low carb as a panacea for all situations.
Gee, I wonder where anyone got that idea from?? Could it be that this is what HE said? Low Carb And Paleo: My Thoughts Part 1
... Slowly I realized, both by experimentation and by really looking at the literature: CALORIES MATTERED MORE THAN CARBS FOR BODY-COMP.
I have to say this was a pretty big shake-up for me. I’d assumed one could eat as much fat as one desired and STILL get leaner. As I mentioned above, when I first started eating LC, or more specifically, cyclic low carb (CLC) I was leaner than ever in my life. I know based on blood work and fat deposition that I had insulin resistance while vegan, and CLC helped with this immensely, but it was my new-found energy and activity level that drove my leanness, not an inability to store fat in the absence of significant insulin. I think this is one of the most damaging messages that comes out of the LC camp to this day, I was duped by this, so I’m not going to do what a lot of other recovered LC writers do and make folks out to be idiots for still believing this…but, it is time to face facts. ...
As you can see from the C&P of my Google search on "reading comprehension", Mr.Wolf likes to throw that around quite a lot. Hence my query. While yours truly could have been more tactful, there is no justification for this man's behavior.

Oh wait! There's a backstory? LOL ... Trust me folks, there ain't no backstory here to justify this. Put up or shut up Robb.
