Here are a few items that caught my eye during the past week:
For a bit of inspiration, take a look at Dave Parsons’ story at Mark’s Daily Apple. Below are his before and after photos (16 months apart).
- Dr. Kurt Harris at PaNu wrote an interesting post a couple of years ago called Eliminate sugar and refined carbohydrates like wheat flour. For the average American, 22% of daily calories come from sugar and HFCS and 30% comes from wheat flour.
Unbelievable! What a waste of an opportunity to eat something nutritious.
- The USDA has updated its dietary guidelines again (amazing what a room full of bureaucrats can dream up).
- Finally, if you would like to make progress like Dave Parsons, don’t emulate these folks who ran in the annual Krispy Kreme Challenge (over 5000 people entered).
