There's a thread with conflicting opinions going on right now in nutrition section. Seems there may be more than one Max Heart Rate depending on what activity one is engaged in according to some.
The principal conflict in nutritional advice is in the protein/carbs./fats ratio, which varies from 10-80-10 (Pritikin) through 30-40-30 (zone) to 30-20-50 (Atkins). High-carb. diets are great for the aerobically active, such as many of us, but they can turn couch potatoes into type II diabetics. Conversely, I have severe reservations about the long-term health effects of sustained low-carb. eating.
