So I'm halfway through the book which I purchased during the March 17th blitz, despite having followed the blog and the PB for about 9 months now. A couple of things piqued my curiosity:
1. At one point in the book, Mark suggests that just as we would with meat and vegetables, we should opt for locally produced olive oil (and other oils) instead of imported. One, I'm an Old World snob ha ha and two, in the 16 years that I've been living in Ontario I have never EVER seen an olive tree. How the heck am I supposed to find local olive oil?
2. On page 167 Mark indicates that the ideal body fat range for females is 12-20%. Twelve percent strikes me as dangerously low - doesn't anything below 15% or so cause amenorrhea etc?
