Links I Like

Golly, it’s been a while since I’ve done a Links I Like post. I am going to try really, really hard to make this a weekly feature again. Without further ado:

  • I’ll admit that I’ve been a practitioner of moderate-to-high-protein eating plans (most notably when doing the Burn the Fat Challenge two summers ago). So I read with intense interest this post from Marion Nestle about a really rigorous study that adds weight to the argument that calories count more than the specific macronutrient ratio (protein, carbohydrates, fat) of the diet. She also mentions a Washington Post article about the study…you can link to that here.
  • Some awesome new Food Rules from Michael Pollan. Numbers 2 and 4 are my favorites. I need to go buy some flowers…
  • Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Here’s some encouragement and tips for success from the New York Times. This slightly mitigates the somewhat depressing nature of “The Fat Trap” article from the previous Sunday.
  • Foodborne illness: Badly underreported. This is no lie…the readings I did for my first Food Safety class confirmed that, in somewhat mind-numbing detail.
  • Finally, do you do yoga? So do I. I found the article “How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body” informative and a bit enlightening. I will no longer fret because I can’t do shoulder stands or head stands.

Happy reading, and have a great week!
