I’m doing a prerecorded online presentation to the V Congresso Nacional de Alimentos e Nutrição, Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto, at 8:00 p.m. on my book Unsavory Truth (Um Verdade Indigesta). Information about the conference is here. It runs from October 4 to 8.
Never mind low-carb v. low-fat: Get a Lab (dog, that is)
A reader who prefers his name to go unmentioned writes this in response to yesterday’s post about low-carb v. low-fat diets:
It is pretty simple.
1. Calories in, Calories out!
2. Eat less. I cut out beer and ice cream.
3. Get a Labrador retriever and walk everyday. If you don’t the dog will drive you crazy and probably destroy your house.
I got my first Lab in 2002 and weighed 240. I am on my second Lab and now continue to weigh about 210 after having lost 35 pounds by 2006, and have crept up about 5 pounds.
It ain’t complicated!
He could make a fortune. Just think: the “Get a Lab” diet—a guaranteed success!
