What I've been reading lately

My sidebar doesn't reflect it, largely because I have been reading them too quickly to keep up, but here's a quick run down:
The China Study, Forks over Knives, The Engine 2 Diet, Keep it Simple, Keep it Whole. You can pick them up at your local bookstore, or order them here. I checked most of them out of the library.

As I was musing over the weekend about the path we've decided on, I realized that it was just a small step along the journey that began way back in college and before. I started adding whole grains back into my diet then; I've always been a fruit and vegetable guy. As the kids were growing up, we slacked off on the whole grains a bit and had more meat/fish than before. But, while I was working for a video wholesaler in the 1990s, I was exposed to Covert Bailey. He had a PBS program that we sold and I received a free video.

The video led to reading his books, especially Fit or Fat (which is now revised) and Smart Exercise. We made changes to our diet, incorporating more whole grains, dropping more fats out, etc. The stuff that I've learned in the last 2 weeks simply confirms what he was saying back then—just a bit more.

So, if you are looking for more reading, there you go...
