What the bleep do we know about carbs?

I realized something hilarious today. Dr. Jack Kruse is the What the Bleep Do We Know? of Paleo. You know, that pretentious movie about "quantum physics" that was actually woo dressed up in scienecy language? Here is a fun game, which quotes is from Dr. Jack Kruse and which is from What the Bleep Do We Know?

A Food Manifesto For Wussies

Maybe it's inadvisable to post while running a fever. Yes, I've finally succumbed to a winter illness. I could blame forgetting to take Vitamin D or traveling I suppose, but instead I'll direct my fever feistiness towards ill-mannered blogging. 

A Sardonic Review of The Four Hour Body

TIMOTHY FERRISS, nominated as one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Business People of 2007,” is author of the #1 New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and BusinessWeek bestseller, The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been published in 35 languages.

Wired magazine has called Tim “The Superman of Silicon Valley” for his manipulation of the human body.

Fuck this, I'm getting the cassoulet

Scene 1: I'm at a party. There isn't that much to eat that won't upset my stomach, except some nice roast potatoes. Suddenly a girl appears smiling benevolently. Is she about to say "Oh, actually we have steak in the kitchen"? Nope. Instead she giggles and asks "Are you allowed to have those?" 

I grit my teeth and spitefully add an extra helping to my plate.

How do I love thee, neolithic foods

Have you seen Chris Masterjohn's latest post? Since his last posts have been rather serious, I thought he was seriously going to write a paleo book. ANd I thought...well that's quite a bit unlike the Chris I know and a little odd to boot. But seriously, it reminds me of all the reasons I'm not writing a book any time soon.

SEE A FRICKIN DOCTOR

While I don't have lots of faith in doctors, there are plenty of serious conditions that basic tests can rule out. I'd feel pretty stupid if I didn't get them and ended up dying or seriously ill from something that eating a good diet might not save me from. In paleolithic times people DID die of infections that are preventable now. They weren't diabetic and didn't have heart disease, but bad things can still happen to the human body.
