Just got off the phone w Sisson. He thought you might enjoy getting this.   I might go public after I see how things play out, but for now, both of us would like our names kept out of it.

I'd appreciate keeping this between us, for now. It's not that I'm totally adverse to going public as that's kinda the way I do things, but even that post on DeVany I did way back when took weeks of deliberation. i just learned of this last evening and did my due diligence this morning.

Here's the link. I assume some of you have seen it.



While I've certainly suspected Kruse lies a lot, I did not have 1st hand knowledge, until now. I got that just now, and exercising caution because of the spoof/parody Twitter account, noticed immediately that the FB post was from "Jack Kruse" while his FB Page is "Dr. Jack Kruse" and the profile pics are different. So, given what happened before, wanted to be sure. I'm absolutely sure.

...I don't really mind hyperbole in all the stuff he does. A hyperbolic progress pic is picking the right clothes, having a tan, sucking in the gut, best lighting, etc. Posting a pic of an entirely different person is just a big fat lie. And it's a bad, stupid, easy to detect one, which makes it almost worse, in my book. I knew immediately upon seeing it that it was not Jack, nor will it ever be.

So, I did all the DD. Found he has a personal FB, same profile pic. Joined the IPMG group, scrolled through hundreds and hundreds of posts going back to a week ago, and here it is, indeed. To even take the final step, I did the reverse image search and yea, that pic has been around a long time and has been used by a lot of marketers.


Robb and I stuck our necks out for him publicly. Robb looks to have had his patience worn thin a few days ago and now mine is spent as well.

I can't tell you how many dozens of DMs I have with the guy back and forth admonishing him to tone it down, take the high road, and on and on. I thought the guy was trainable. I guess not.

I'm open to suggestions on how to proceed.

Was that an e-mail discussion which the writer wanted to remain 'non-public'? As in, ' but for now, both of us would like our names kept out of it.'

I lose track of all the players in these dramas. I know they ARE dramas, and because of all the vituperative exchanges on diet boards about low-carbing, vegan, calorie counting, AMA, Weight Watchers, low-fat, doctors, Big Pharma, etc., dramas are interesting when they play out. But I don't even read these guys' blogs. I don't want to. Reading them just gives the nuttier ones more attention.

Yes. But it came from Nikoley who was a "hostile party" and at this point, I'm not going to protect Mark Sisson's good guy reputation any more. He told Dick to pass the info to me for a reason.
