All told, it's a pretty decent article though they make it sound harder than it is to get enough protein. It was nice to see them debunking the protein combining myth.

Yeah, I thought this was surprisingly objective for a Times food article. They tend to be one extreme or the other.

I stumbled upon this article this morning as well, was expecting a vegan bashing session and was pleasently surprised. Most of the negative commentary on the dietary aspects (i.e. that big time runners - and other major athletes - think they are guru dieticians) was pretty spot on.
