Could it be that the conventional wisdom is correct for once? Further research has shown that transfats, whatever health effect they have, have another effect. They help your abdomen store fat. That’s bad, no one wants fat there. So, bravo, … Continue reading Transfats still not curing cancer
One thing I’ve learned in researching health news is that the government is full of shit. So, when I see the hate being directed at trans-fats, I wonder how big of a lie we’re being forced to eat. First, the … Continue reading FDA bans trans-fats, countdown begins for news transfats cure cancer
We’re all American here and so we all understand this scene: But wait a minute. Let’s think about this. How many times do you put sugar on sugar in a meal? That’s what you’re doing, you know. That’s for deserts… … Continue reading Why are you putting carbs on carbs?
So, I found this: “Amateurs in any discipline are the best, if you can connect with them. Unlike dilettantes, career professionals are to knowledge what prostitutes are to love.” And I like it. We all know that the American Heart … Continue reading Interesting Quote
One thing you discover once you go low-carb (not even paleo, just cutout some carbs you used to take for granted), is that it’s only a hop-skip-and-jump to intermittent fasting. And, as I’ve said about IF, it seems to create … Continue reading Time to fire that dietitian?

So, there’s a study out that seems to suggest that Splenda will raise your insulin levels 20 percent higher than glucose and water alone. No big deal, right? That just means that Splenda has a glycemic index of 120. I … Continue reading Zero Calorie Fatness
So, the conventional wisdom is that your body is basically a big food battery and that it stores extra calories you eat in fat cells. The only way to lose those fat cells are to eat less or exercise more. And of course, you need to eat a low fat diet because fat is high in calories and the more calories you ingest, the more you store fat because you’re only burning so many calories, fella. Especially if you run baby-step style. And of course, you drink diet beverages and use artificial sweeteners because they have fewer calories. But, … Continue reading Wow, You Just Can’t Win
Like most sane people, I tend to avoid pop-medical articles that pop up on the internet.

People drink low fat milk to avoid the fat and excess calories of milk. Which is cute. The whole low fat fad was cute. What better way is there to turn nature’s perfect drink into soda? Basically turning it in … Continue reading This is why you’re fat – you’ve been told to avoid fats
Even in designing a workout routine and diet that will give people the athletic performance and looks they want, I’ve always thought there was a limit to fat loss. Sometimes, the best a person can hope for is that they … Continue reading Intermittent Fasting Journey…What if this stuff works?
You are in an airport. You are hungry. You go to the bar. What do you order? I was once in an airport and sat down to eat and I came to a realization. Wow, the healthiest thing to eat … Continue reading The Beer and Wings Are The Healthiest Things on The Menu
So, let’s just get down to brass tacks and say it, the American Heart Association is The World’s Greatest Terror Organization.

So, in researching the pernicious quackery that led to the death of MCA, where he was led to follow his saliva cancer surgery with this crap: In October 2009, Yauch sent an email update to Beastie Boys’ official fan list, … Continue reading Oprah’s War on Science, Celebrities (or, in reality, feed cancer by being vegan)
This is controversial but only because vegans are very, very convinced that their diet is the morally and dietarily perfect. Adam Yauch, the beloved member of the Beastie Boys passed away from a very treatable form of cancer because of … Continue reading Science, Diets, Cancer, and Adam Yauch
Here’s a problem for dieters or people trying to lose or maintain weight: We’ve been filled with lies about what is or is not “healthy”. Case in point. This thing: hi would you like some pure carbs? I was in … Continue reading Dubious Achievements in Healthy Foods
Taking charge of your diet is an important part of weight loss…or better yet, preventing excess fat deposits from being added to your body in the first place. Unfortunately, the people who sell you food aren’t your friends. In fact, we’ve seen that the people who regulate your food aren’t your friends either. So who is your friend? Well, you are. And me. But mostly you. Be your own buddy every time you get ready to eat. Make it good. Now, good doesn’t mean boringly bland. I like pizza and I like chinese food. I tend to make these for … Continue reading The worst thing I’ve ever eaten.
Not to get political on you, and this isn’t political. It’s about bad science and bad laws commingling into a policy that ignores scientific advances in diet and health based on old wives’ tales about what is and is not healthy.
