    Big Food vs. Tim Noakes: The Final Crusade

    Post by graham64 on Fri Jan 06 2017, 22:21



    Tim Noakes’ Final Crusade

    An American may not be able to grasp what Tim Noakes means to South Africa since no equivalent to Professor Noakes exists in the U.S. In South Africa, Noakes is a nationally famous exercise scientist and physician who has transformed the practice of sport by challenging most commonly held beliefs. And yet, Noakes’ own university and colleagues, along with the medical establishment, have suddenly turned against him in what he describes as his “final crusade.” Having demolished dogma on subjects as diverse as hydration, motivation and fatigue, Noakes may have gone a step too far. He took on carbs.

    It's long post but well worth a read

    Oh yes! Just saw this and had it lined up to post here. Excellent stuff!

    Today was dull and cold, and wet at times, so I mostly stayed in ploughing through Twitter and pausing only to get some more liver, bacon and mushrooms down my neck, this time with purple sprouting broccoli.

    Tomorrow I'll need some more sprouts and probably a walk including some more Kendrick-approved rays. The same idiots have tried to ban the sunshine, how long before they come for our low carb vegetables? Perhaps they'll make a law that you can only have Brussels sprouts if they are given away in a box of cornflakes.

    And the liver will only be available on prescription.
