Many nutritionists and health authorities have “actively advised against” low-carbohydrate diets, said the lead author of the new study, Dr. Lydia A. Bazzano of the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. “It’s been thought that your saturated fat is, of course, going to increase, and then your cholesterol is going to go up,” she said. “And then bad things will happen in general.” The new study showed that was not the case. By the end of the yearlong trial, people in the low-carbohydrate group had lost about eight pounds more on average than those in the low-fat group. They had significantly greater reductions in body fat than the low-fat group, and improvements in lean muscle mass — even though neither group changed their levels of physical activity.

There’s so much in the media about how we’ve got this hardline, extremist ideology, but if we’re being real, calling it an ideology is a stretch. We’ve got some bullet points we work off of. We know that if we kill a bunch of infidels, there will be virgins waiting for us in heaven, and we know that women are supposed to cover their bodies up somehow. Other than that, though, most of us are just doing this because a group of belligerent men with Kalashnikovs strongly suggested that we should. And who’s gonna argue with men carrying Kalashnikovs?

My buddy Rick and I played on stage for the first time in twenty years. We both look exactly like we did at sixteen - I was fat and grey and he was skinny and looked like Patrick Swayze in Road House.
