This is going to be short and sweet A) So no one sues me B) Because I'm busy with things that pay my mortgage. B leads me to my point....please don't spend hundreds for weight loss advice or supplements. Do I want you to click on that Amazon ad to the right so I get 18 cents from your diaper purchase? Yes, it would be great if I could pay for the costs of this blog but it is not why I write. I write here so that I can inspire and help a few of my friends get their bodies and energy back to where they want it to be. And so far it has worked for at least 13 of you that I know of....hopefully there are a few more that avoid telling me so my head doesn't get too big.
I have asked you to buy two books, for a total of $25. The other investments I have asked you to make don't cost you anything: read the books, download a free app, eat fats instead of carbs. Could I probably help more people with a nice website that summarizes those two books with cool graphics and daily meal plans? Yes. Maybe someday Dr. Volek and Dr. Phinney will let me do that, but until that happens you are stuck with actually reading the books and reading this graphically lacking blog. In addition to this horrible excuse for an eating blog, there are at least 10 other great high fat/low carb blogs written by people with actual credentials and graphic designers.
Just by reading these books and opening your mind to fats (and closing it to sugar=the devil) you are already ahead of the thinking of 99% of our society...and a hell of a lot of people who actually claim to know what they are talking about and try to sell you crap! You are on the cutting edge of dietary science...well the earliest known humans figured it out the fat thing, so let's say...You are on the cutting edge of modern dietary science.
Experts Applaud Dietary Guidelines That Lift Dietary Fat Cap
"In recent years, evidence has been building that diets higher in healthful fats -- even when they exceed the current limit of 35% -- can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. At the same time, no evidence suggests that diets low in fat but high in carbohydrates prevent any major diseases."
My suggestion is to save your $150 a month someone wants you to spend on advice or "super-diet-explode-hydro-cut-abs-extreme" and use that money to buy real food. *Now, if you are a serious athlete I think there are things other than food that you can benefit from, but for this blog I'm talking only about losing weight.* Next time you go to the traditional old grocery store, do all your shopping on the outside of the store (except toilet paper...get that in the inside isle). Veggies, fish, meats, cheese, beer (ooops- skip that area), butter, eggs and heavy cream. That pretty much sums up about 90% of my meals. Enjoy your 4th of July BBQs and remember: burger, no bun, extra cheese, bacon, avocado, and a little sour cream- if you feel like getting crazy.
