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).
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).
- For a thorough but simple overview of the changes, check out this post by Stephan Guyenet.
- For the geeked-out, uber-detailed, smack down version, check out Denise Minger’s post.
- 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).
In preparing posts for my blog, I spend a good amount of time reading and researching around the internet. Rather than write about everything I read, I plan to occasionally provide links to posts that catch my eye. Below are a few from the past week that you may find interesting:
- I highly recommend Dr. Kurt Harris’s blog covering all aspects of paleo nutrition. Here is an overview post for Getting Started.
- Dan Matesz at Primal Wisdom has a great post about Primal Diet on a Shoestring: a Nutritionally Complete, Inexpensive, Low Carbohydrate Meal Plan.
- Mark Sisson, author of The Primal BluePrint, has a post about how more-and-more people are using mail-order blood tests. Take a look at Doctors as Middlemen?
- For those of you that want to get a better understanding of the science of obesity, check out How Does a Cell Avoid Obesity? at Perfect Health Diet.
- Finally, I found Ned Kock’s post on Compensatory Adaptationto be very enlightening.
