New Logical Losers Support Group
People have been asking how they can support the group, and I've been wanting to create a facebook group, so I've put the two together. If you go to www.logicallosers.com this will be our new community to create a safe place to talk, support, and inspire each other. If you get at least $1 worth of value from the podcast, I urge you to sign up.
Why is there a fee?Because we are talking health, fitness, etc, everybody and their brother have a product or service to tell. I believe we may be talking about services and such, but I don't want "Coach Steve" or " Fitness Franny" coming in and spamming us. There are different rewards, and again, this is all optional.

Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It - Reviewed
This is a book written by Gary Taubes, and he takes on a very controversial subject and that is that Eating less and moving more is bad advice. WHAT? Well, he spends the better part of the first ten chapters going over why, and by chapter two I was like "OK, SERIOUSLY, MOVE ON." But I had to suffer through many chapters for him to get to what we are supposed to do. So I'm going to sum it up.
Cut down carbohydrate, and cut down on Sugar. (more or less adopt a paleo diet). As he puts it,
Cut back on Carbs.
"On this diet, no sugars (simple carbohydrates) and no starches (complex carbohydrates) are eaten. The only carbohydrates encouraged are the nutritionally dense, fiber-rich vegetables listed. Sugars are simple carbohydrates. Avoid these kinds of foods: white sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, molasses, corn syrup, beer (contains barley malt), milk (contains lactose), flavored yogurts, fruit juice, and fruit. Starches are complex carbohydrates. Avoid these kinds of foods: grains (even “whole” grains), rice, cereals, flour, cornstarch, breads, pastas, muffins, bagels, crackers, and “starchy” vegetables such as slow-cooked beans (pinto, lima, black beans), carrots, parsnips, corn, peas, potatoes, French fries, potato chips"
Do Not Eat
You should completely cut out sugar, bread, cereal, flour containing items, fruits, juices, honey, whole or skimmed milk, yogurt, canned soups, dairy substitutes, ketchup, sweet condiments and relishes. Avoid these common mistakes: Beware of “fat-free” or “lite” diet products, and foods containing “hidden” sugars and starches (such as coleslaw or sugarfree cookies and cakes). Check the labels of liquid medications, cough syrups, cough drops, and other over-the-counter medications that may contain sugar. Avoid products that are labeled “Great for Low-Carb Diets!”
