Coconut Protein Shake Followup
Monday, July 04, 2011      1 comments

Ok, judging from the comments, people don't seem to enjoy the coconut as much as I do. ;) So just a couple of points of clarification. I should have mentioned the reason why I chose coconut milk. It is not so much for the aesthetics or t... Read more

Exercise for Living, not Losing
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      15 comments

I used to believe exercise was the key to weight loss. I would spend hours at the gym, peddling away furiously. When I didn't lose weight, I'd rationalize that I wasn't spending enough time at the gym. An hour a day 5 days per week. Gyms sho... Read more

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      14 comments

Contrary to what we have been lead to believe, obesity is not due to the sins of gluttony or sloth. Obesity is a state of malnutrition and biochemical imbalance. Our bodies want to be lean and healthy. They do not want to be overweight or... Read more

Why, Dr. Oz, Why?
Thursday, June 23, 2011      24 comments

How many of you watch Dr. Oz? I would guess most of us. He's a cardiologist, he's entertaining, Oprah made him a star, oh, and he's cute! ... Read more
Normal BMI!
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      24 comments

For the first time in 10 years, my BMI is in the normal range! I'm no longer overweight! Ok, ok. I know BMI is a terrible standard. But still, this is huge! As a much better yardstick, my bodyfat is below 30% for the first time in 1... Read more
Blood Type Diet?
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      46 comments

This is one of the topics that I can't talk about on the general forums without getting quashed because it falls outside conventional wisdom. This morning, for some reason, I woke up with an idea in my head. I don't even remember how all t... Read more

Dietary Apostate
Friday, June 17, 2011      14 comments

I read Spark's article on the new USDA "MyPlate", and just sighed. Of all the articles I've read lately about it, Spark seems to be the only one with a generally favorable opinion. Compare the Spark and LiveStrong articles regarding "MyPla... Read more
Another Piece of the Equation - Leptin
Thursday, June 16, 2011      13 comments

A long time ago, I didn't understand the whole low carb thing. I had an image of people eating gobs of bunless burgers, bacon, and no vegetables. I didn't think that could be good. Now that I am a convert, I still don't think that is a go... Read more
Exercise is Important
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      10 comments

There is some debate on whether you can lose weight on diet alone, and if exercise is less important. Gary Taubes says exercise doesn't really matter for weight loss. I say, it depends. I agree that nutrition is the first place to sta... Read more
