Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
It’s over two hours long, but worth watching the Weston A. Price Foundation‘s press release regarding the USDA guidelines.

The Twinkie guy, the potato guy, now the chip lady… can we think of a name for these ridiculous people? How about “monogastronomers.” Does that work? Anyone have a better word?

I thought you might enjoy the standing desk I put together recently.The items used:
4 CORK Trivets by IKEA – 7″ Round
12 Pack of Magnolia Brush 5 qt Galvanized Metal Pails
Rolodex Bridge Desktop Manager
I lifted the desk so that each leg would rest on 3 nested pails. To reduce the stress on the bottom of the pails, I placed an IKEA cork trivet on each. To lift my monitor, I used a rolodex desktop manager, and a laptop stand I had lying around. I am still looking for the best way to elevate my keyboard. I’ve had it for a week, and I can report that it works for me – I feel great.-Danny
