“It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
~Harry S. Truman
I thought I’d post this link to an interesting lecture, by Dr Loren Cordain, on the Paleo Diet and Multiple Sclerosis, brought to us by Dr. Dan at At Darwin’s Table. The lecture, in its entirety, will cost about an hour of your time — but if you don’t have that kind of time to spare , just watch the first 10mins as this gives a really good introduction to the Paleo Diet in general.
In a broader sense, this lecture will open your eyes to the plethora of diseases inflicted upon our genotype by the consumption of a substandard diet. The focus here is Multiple Sclerosis — a disease I hadn’t really given much thought to as being largely diet-driven; Dr. Cordain, however, delivers a good bit of evidence to the contrary, and it’s highly interesting stuff. Now, the good doctor and I don’t see eye-to-eye on everything diet-related — the consumption of saturated animal fats, for instance — (he, for the most part, being against it), but this is a minor contention, as otherwise I believe that he and his brand of Paleo are spot-on.
In other news, I plan on writing a “day in the life” post for Saturday — kind of a “highlight chronicle” of a typical (or, not so typical, as it wound-up being a “working ” Saturday) — but nonetheless, it may provide some insight for those curious about how I juggle eating, exercise and my work schedule. Now, I’m chronicling Saturday’s highlights, however, it may be a few days before I post. My work schedule has been a tad demanding as of late. Hopefully it will be worth the wait though, as I’ll include the recipe for the awesome pressure-cooker roast Meesus TTP made last night. Yummmm, yum!
