I think I figured out why everyone is fat. Excellent review on ketogenic diets and endurance. Eating 6 small meals verses 2-3 big ones. 6 meals part 2 Finally, I have to throw a plug for Pop's grassfed beef.  Their stuff is about the most reasonable around and their customer service is spot-on.

Fat and Meat

Posted by & filed under Nutrition, Uncategorized.

     It drives me nuts every time I hear a "nutrition expert" or doctor condemn fat and accuse it of being the root of all our health woes.  But, if we look at different traditional diets throughout history, many are extremely high in fat.  The Masai survive on the cow:  Blood, meat and milk.  The… Read more »

    My eye always catches articles on health and nutrition whether on the news, web, or newspaper.  So much of the "healthy" advice given by the doctors and registered dieticians in these articles is total garbage.  Getting on my soapbox:  America is outraged at the deaths of the 4000+ volunteers who willingly and knowingly made… Read more »

The subject of cholesterol came up at work the other day.  One of the guys who eats a low-carb, paleo diet had his cholesterol taken.  The results caused bells and whistles going off with the doctors.  Of course these doctors advocate a low-fat diet and (incorrectly) assume that the lower the cholesterol, the less risk… Read more »
