One of the questions I have is while the whole Paleo Diet concept is charming I want to know just how scientific the diet really is.

‘Cleansing’ diets may be worthless or even dangerous and the only thing they will really cleanse is your bank account of cash. In short don’t waste your time or money on the “cleansing” snake oil quackery and scams. Parenthetically speaking if you hear someone cite the long lost “research” and writing of Arnold Ehret (1866 – 1922) you should immediately consider why his writing is long lost. It was for a very good reason. It was quackery.

  • Shopping Low Carb: Whole Foods, Supermarket, Trader Joe’s, and Amazon Subscribe and Save | Low Carb Confidential

    Shopping low carb – at least the way that I do it, can be a pain in the ass. The reasons for this are:

    • The conventional supermarket has the most variety and the best prices generally, but the specific items I’m looking for are either unavailable or at a higher price
    • The specialty markets (ie: Whole Foods) have more of the items I am looking for and the prices are comparable or better than they would be at the conventional supermarket – the problems is that the rest of their stuff is immorally overpriced
    • The ‘value specialty markets’ (ie: Trader Joe’s) provide an eclectic selection that ranges from treasures to junk
    • Some things are only available mail order – or only economical mail order

    What this means is that I have become used to buying food at 5 different stores.

    A pain in the ass – see what I mean?

Mark Bittman on Morning Joe Wednesday, June 5, 2013

VB6EatVeganBefore6Saw Mark Bitman (who I always enjoy seeing and/or reading) on Morning Joe this morning (An excerpt from Mark Bittman’s “VB6″ — MSNBC) promoting his new book VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health . . . for Good,

A couple of times he used the phrase “the science says” or “the science tells us” but what he was saying wasn’t really jiving with what I come to believe “the science really says” thanks to Gary Taubes so I googled the keywords ‘Mark Bittman Gary Taubes’ and found these articles so I could see where they cross paths:
