I'm Still Alive!

Hello my dears!

I know I said last time that it would be a week or two before the new site was up and running. Well, as you can see, two weeks have come and gone, and then a few more weeks have come and gone.

My apologies for the delay. The transition is basically done, but there are some problems with formatting right now. Basically, for some reason, the spacing in many of the posts has not transferred properly and they look like giant walls of text, with no spaces between paragraphs and sections. Oy! They’re readable, but it’s not pleasant. Once I get that figured out, I’ll make the switch and get back to posting more often. (Yay!) I have so many (so many!) posts bouncing around in my head. It’ll be on me to actually write them, but I have a couple already set to go so I won’t have to keep you waiting even longer.

I guess I’ve been waiting until I have more content for the site. Not just blog posts, but actual content. A low carb & ketogenic FAQ, troubleshooting guide, food lists, etc. All of those and more are in the works, as are the posts I gave previews of last time. What this boils down to is my own laziness. There is truly no other reason this is taking so long, except I was waiting for things to be done for which I, myself, am the only thing standing in the way. Working from home is a great idea if you are a self-starter and are motivated and disciplined. I am none of these three things, so joke’s on me. (The even bigger joke was on me when I thought I could learn to be disciplined and a self-starter by joining the military, but it turns out no one—not even drill instructors—can force you to be something you’re not.)

Okay, enough wallowing in the swamp of self-pity!

TL;DR: New site coming soon-ish. I need to work out the spacing problems and play around with the fonts and colors until I find a look I’m happy with. Sorry to keep you waiting! In the meantime, you can always find me on Twitter, where I post irreverent thoughts of my own as well as links to nutrition & health things that might be of interest to you.

P.S. What I’m reading now: The Salt Fix, by Dr. James DiNicolantonio, with whom I collaborated on my very first peer-reviewed journal article, Added sugars drive nutrient and energy deficit in obesity: a new paradigm. (Yes, I have an article on PubMed! How cool is that?!) The “experts” were wrong about cholesterol, saturated fat, and red meat. Could they be wrong about salt/sodium, too? Signs point to yesRead James’s book to find out why. A physician I follow on Twitter said it’s like “a salty version of The Big Fat Surprise,” which I reviewed here.) I agree!

  1. Thanks for the tip about "The Salt Fix"; I just started reading it. I actually wanted to order your book, but they don't ship it here- (I'll wait until I visit the States; just a few weeks now). Looking forward to your new articles on the blog, whenever they appear.
