Nursing School Search recently posted their top 100 women's health blog picks, and I was overjoyed to see that they included a Nutrition and Special Diets -- and that Fear and Loathing made the list! A big thanks to Kelly Sonora for that.
I'll be checking out several of these blogs, especially A Gluten Free Guide (a little carby at times, but great recipes and pics) and A Life Less Sweet, the trials and tribulations of a woman trying to avoid high-fructose corn syrup. In Canada, we aren't bombarded with HFCS but from what my American friends tell me, it's in bloody everything. Even chicken. Why anyone would add HFCS to chicken is beyond me. You wanna add something to chicken? Try BACON. Unless it has HFCS in it...
Also featured in the Weight Loss section is Jennette Fulda, whose podcast interview with Jimmy Moore I just listened to last night. She lost almost 200 lbs on a South Beach-type diet, and her book Half- Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir sounds like a damn good read. I'll read pretty much anything to do with food and diets, and if it happens to have "ass" in the title, all the better. If you've read it already, let me know what you think -- I have about 628 books sitting on my coffee table/bedside table/living room floor/toilet tank waiting to be read, but what's one more?
What are you guys reading lately? Listened to any good podcasts lately? Let me in on it. I've been away for a while, and have a lot of catching up to do!
