Note: This is not medical advice.  I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV.  Always consult with a medical professional before beginning any diet or exercise program.

Garcinia cambogia is a fruit.  I’ve heard the fruit tastes good.  Feel completely free to eat it if you would like.  It becomes a scam when people attempt to market it to people as a weight loss supplement.  We are going to play a game called what does the literature say.

carrot-kale-walnuts-tomatoesThe Italian Economist Vilfredo Pareto observed in 1896 that approximately 80% of the land was owned by 20% of the population. What is fascinating is that this seems to hold true in many other regards.  Often 80% of our results come from 20% of our efforts. Continue reading “Pareto’s Principle and Dieting”

I’m sure this title is catching some of you off guard.  It certainly appears if you look around my site that I run a diet website (all these go to different articles about weight loss).  But that misses the purpose of this website.  The tagline for this site is:

Eating for health, happiness, and longevity

That is what I study, and what I am trying to understand how to accomplish.  Oftentimes a diet is counterproductive to one or many of these goals. Continue reading “The Futility of Dieting”

Wheat Belly Scientific Review: Chapter 1

Image result for wheat belly

I previously reviewed Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis here.  However, because this is a dense book relying on a variety of scientific studies I wanted to give the book the analysis it deserves.  This will involve both a look at the way he structures his arguments and a look at whether the studies he cites support his argument.
