Welcome to my site . . If you'd like to browse books from my Outlier Publications, please select a tab above.
However, the front page will be devoted to my TOPIC OF THE SEASON, a kind of billboard for the current topic that is of interest to me and one that I think is important. So . . . please read on.
TOPIC OF THE SEASON – Health Management and Weight Loss
If you are overweight (and maybe have significant weight-related health problems), and you believe it is because you eat too much or exercise too little (or any variations of these)–you've been lied to. Suspend your disbelief for a couple of days and explore the resources and links below–especially Dave's account–and you'll never look back. You'll never look back at a bulging gut, fat thighs, a horrendous self-image from looking in the mirror, and the social stigma attached to being obese or grossly overweight. Believe me–this works!
What This Lifestyle is Called: A Primal or Paleo eating plan that mirrors what our bodies were designed to thrive under, what our ancestors ate and how they used their bodies.
A Source for Serious Research: Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taub
For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. In this groundbreaking book, award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.
User-friendly Research: Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It by Gary Taub
An eye-opening, myth-shattering examination of what makes us fat, from acclaimed science writer Gary Taubes. In his New York Times best seller, Good Calories, Bad Calories, Taubes argued that our diet’s overemphasis on certain kinds of carbohydrates—not fats and not simply excess calories—has led directly to the obesity epidemic we face today. The result of thorough research, keen insight, and unassailable common sense, Good Calories, Bad Calories immediately stirred controversy and acclaim among academics, journalists, and writers alike. Michael Pollan heralded it as “a vitally important book, destined to change the way we think about food.” Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.
Results That Will Blow Your Mind!: Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davix
A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.
Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100
million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.
After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic—
and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In Wheat Belly, Davis exposes the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering and agribusiness being sold to the American public as “wheat”—and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new, wheat-free lifestyle.
Summation of the Conclusions: Sorry, you need to dig into it for yourself–it's a lifechanger!
