5 "Must-Reads"

5 "Must-Reads"

It’s been waaayyy too long! I hope to get some more regular blogging in once my schedule settles down a bit. Okay, it won’t and I’ll just have to MAKE more time for it!

In the meantime, I’ll link you to 5 things I think you should check out – some of them my Diet Blog articles and others are things that I think you’ll find informative/entertaining.

  1. Gwyneth Paltrow has bones like “Mr. Glass”: Not eating and avoiding the sun gives you brittle bones! This one sparked quite a debate between yours truly and someone who thought a) I was mean, b) higher protein intakes would make your kidneys spontaneously combust and c) ketosis is caused by high protein diets and is dangerous.
  2. Insulin: An Undeserved Bad Reputation: Super-duper smart guy James Krieger pens this outstanding 2-part (so far) series of how insulin became the red-headed step-child of weight regulation and why this concept is largely a steaming heap of ostrich poop. You can also read part II here.
  3. Fit Marker: Friend and colleague JCD and partner-in-unapologetic knowledge bombs FitJerk founded a revolutionary hub where you can access the best of the best of training, nutrition and health information.
  4. The Truth about Alcohol, Fat Loss and Muscle Growth: Martin Berkhan: Swedish for common sense. Berkhan delves deep into the science and practicality of alcohol intake and its impact on fat loss and muscle.
  5. Should Obese People be Given a Handicap Parking?: Another pot-stirring piece courtesy of my fellow Diet-Blogger Ted Kallimer. A fascinating debate, indeed!

Hope you enjoy the bits!
