Quick post Hubby's grandmother is not doing well so off to see her. Please send prayers. She's a real gem!
UConn lost. Oh well.
UConn basketball had a bad season for both...(UConn women is ranked #4 in the country!!) FIRE BOTH JC and GA...:) (and PP, too)
That was just ‘a bit of a stretch’...
The women at least won the Big East Conference Championship on the women’s side. The men have had a rough season, no doubt. I sense that Coach Jim and Assistant Coach George are grooming former UConn men’s/NBA pro b-ball player to in time take over as head coach in the future when both retire. I sense that may happen soon down the road.
Forgot to add, “grooming former UConn Huskies/NBA b-ball player Kevin Ollie to take over as future head coach.”
Heard it. Fantastic. The main point the doc makes is that it’s NOT cholesterol (exactly what Gary Taubes said 10 years ago) but it’s carbs and above all sugars.
All of this is in my chapter in “Seven Events that Made America America,” called “Ike has a Heart Attack” but I got all my info from a phenomenal book called “Good Calories, Bad Calories” by Gary Taubes. Don’t let the title fool you: it is the most detailed medical/scientific review of all the literature that is out there you could hope to find. Taubes knows his studies. None of them point to meat or fats. All of them point to carbs.
I deal with this in my book "Seven Events that Made America America" and look at how the fat/cholesterol/meat explanation soon became the villain in the whole obesity debate. It was political from the get-go.
Kevin Ollie to be a head Coach at UConn might be good...I wonder how UHart women’s are doing...
I was thinking of Petri dish too. Ick.
I haven’t read “Good Calories Bad Calories” yet but I have read Taubes’ “Why We Get Fat”, which is, for lack of a better term a more ‘user friendly’ version. GCBC is definitely on my list though.
I’ve cut out carbs (grains specifically) and vegetable oil and eat mainly meat, eggs and butter now. 90 pounds lost so far but I’d like to lose maybe 30 to 40 pounds more.
Yes, Gary wrote “Why We Get Fat” precisely because so many people were put off by the more daunting bigger book. I haven’t lost weight-—but I do every time I go on his diet. It’s just that I’m married to a woman who is a baking goddess, and the stuff is (to me) irresistable. Since she doesn’t care that much about my body any more :) who am I to decline her cakes and cookies?
Thanks, I will look into that book but like your wife, I love to bake :)
