Hi! The book I referred to in my blog was Gary Taubes' "Why We Get Fat, and What to Do About It". Every day it seems there's a new study that tells us that this thing or that thing is bad for us. We know instinctively that most of them are wrong but don't really know why.
Taubes is a science journalist who has examined the actual clinical trials and studies and picks apart the good science from the bad. What's left is a hypothesis of why we get fat that really rings true. What remains to be done is to rigorously test the hypothesis and prove or disprove it once and for all.
If you haven't yet read it I highly recommend it. His earlier book, "Good Calories, Bad Calories" is even more complete, but a much longer, drier read. 1833 days ago
I just read your blog and really commend you on omitting sugar from your diet. I am so addicted to it, but it is one of the things I am working on with myself (well, among other things too...I am a work in progress :)
How horrible...car accidents, a flood, fibro...I guess you are a strong woman to survive and maintain a positive attitude. I am sending light and healing energy your way...catch. I have had some problems with fibromyalgia and found some help going to the chiropractor and having acupuncture treatments. I was lucky as mine was not full-blown. It is such a horrible malady as people do not understand how it affects your whole life.
I just wanted to stop by, say hello and that I added you as a spark friend. Also, I wanted you invite you to interact with us at "Passionate People Creating Positive Thoughts". There hasn't been a lot of activity in our team, but I hope to improve that. I had also been dealing with depression and, unfortunately, many things (like life) gets put on hold during the down times.
Take care, my new spark friend, we are here if you need some help with a positive attitude or just want to talk. I hope you can feel better soon so you can get back to painting. Julia 1836 days ago
