    The Myths of Losing Weight

    Put down that bag of baked potato chips and listen up. Gary Taubes, the author of Why We Get Fatóand What to Do About It, has some controversial opinions about the reasons Americans are obese (33 percent of us areóup from 13 percent just 40 years ago) and how we can slim down. According to Taubes, a science writer who studied applied physics at Harvard, these commonly accepted truths just donít stand up to the evidence:

    Actually, that article, read on a plane, led me here. And changed me forever. I am quite happy.

    And while Rd is not a great thing, it is good for quick reads and plane rides. This comes from someone who reads like crazy. I literally feel withdrawal symptoms if I have not gotten to read words by the end of the day. I need to read.

    Yeah, I have that reading addiction too...I have even resorted to reading cereal boxes (pre-primal) if I didn't have a book or magazine...

    I have a Kindle; actually just ordered a new one since I dropped my original one once too often. RD serves its purpose in life. It's great for non-readers. I, however, have the aforementioned reading "addiction." I used to read the shampoo bottle in the shower when I was a kid. My husband calls it a true addiction and sees me get a bit crazy when we are actively traveling and I haven't read in a while.
