Why doesn’t Cathy eat breakfast?

with 2 comments

Unsolved mysteries of our time (or the 1970s):

Why doesn’t Cathy eat breakfast?

If anyone can tell me what the National Dairy Council wanted us to think, I’d be much obliged. (They have managed to include a dairy product in every kind of food shown!)

In the meantime, I can only suggest: Maybe because it’s not such a great idea after all?

Nutritionism

leave a comment »

An article called Unhappy Meals in the New York Times Magazine. Nearly 10000 words, every one of them worth reading.

Something (possibly unrelated) Freakonomics quorum on the obesity epidemic.

And Dean Ornish’s TED talk and an article.

Some more links I haven’t carefully read: Is nutrition science not really science?, Junk Food or Junk Science?, Diet and Fat: A Severe Case of Mistaken Consensus.

Also, What if it’s all been a big fat lie?, and (heh) The Physics diet.
