So I’m still at that darned set point. My weight this month fluctuated between 180 and 183. Not horrible. But still oh so frustrating. Part of me wants to blame Hurricane Sandy for this. But even though it would be convenient, I can’t. I did it to myself. In 2003, I went through Hurricane Isabelle. [...]

Three weeks of drinking nothing but raw milk (3 1/2 quarts to a gallon a day) and watching the changes that came over my body was a revelation to me. I lost [...]
In August of 2010, I was at a house party in Upstate New York when I realized that I was most likely gluten intolerant (if not celiac). For the last 10 years, I had followed a mostly low carb diet. It worked and I considered it a very healthy diet for me. Meats, full fat [...]
