Why We Get Fat

I was recommended this book, and I enjoyed it. If you're trying to lose weight, then I recommend it. I already knew a lot of what's in the book, but that's because I'm odd and read a lot on the subject.

This is not a "diet book" in that it does not outline a dietary regimen. It does offer a lot of information about low carb diets and the science behind them. I was particularly pleased with the book's coverage of the history of low carb dieting. I had never heard of William Banting and the others mentioned.

All in all, I learned a few things and enjoyed the book. I'll probably read it again to help reinforce some of the material in my mushy brain.

Here are some links: Amazon's page, NY Times Review, random blog about it.

I love your blog dude...but I love what you do most...take the 4WD out for a spin...hike out to nowhere..I wish I could do that down here in Mexico.

See I go often to the states for photographic opps...and I'm always alone, I wish I could join you in your adventures, I share the fun of being out in the middle of nowhere and have had my share of adventure alone.

I couldn't find your email, therefore I posted this hoping you'd see it.

Here's mine, hit me if you want me.

The previous post seemed like the typical spam-grammar (as you say gibberish)
