Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: Chin-Ups vs. Pull-Ups and a Little Bit of Bittman
It’s been brought to my attention that some of you who have been long-time subscribers to the blog (through Blogger or Google Reader) haven’t been getting any updates of current content. As it so happens, when we switched over to the new site, I was an asshat and forgot all of my login info for the old site. Go figure!
As a result, we had to set up a new feed through feedburner, so for those interested here it is:
Unfortunately, my first choice, http://feeds.feedburner.com/Mr. Alicia Keys was already taken. Nonetheless, hopefully this clears up some of the confusion, and I appreciate all of those who contacted me personally to give me the head’s up that this was an issue.
And now, here’s some stuff you should read.
Pull-Up or Chin-Up? Which is Better? – Mike Reinold
Mike discusses some interesting research and breaks down the chin-up and pull-up and explains which one is “better.”
Is ‘Eat Real Food’ Unthinkable – Mark Bittman
One of my femaie clients sent me the link to this article a few weeks ago, and I was just able to sit down and read it the other day. All I have to say “right on!” Here, Bittman calls out the USDA and basically states what friends like Cassandra Forsythe, Mike Roussell, Brian St. Pierre, Leigh Peele, John Berardi, and a lot of other really smart peeeps have been saying for years. Namely, the USDA needs to get their head out of their ass.
How to Make Oatmeal….Wrong – Mark Bittman
Yet another female client sent me this link, which essentially sparked me to read the article above. I figured that if two separate clients sent me two different articles, from the same author, I should probably check them out.
I gotta say, this Bittman guy has a new fan. I love his no BS approach. It’s weird how practical, common sense can go a long ways.
