  • David shared from Wheat Belly Cookbook: 150 Recipes to Help You Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health by William Davis MD
    It is well-established fact that foods with a high glycemic index promote diabetes, while foods with a low glycemic index—or, even better, no glycemic index—make diabetes less likely. What food has among the highest glycemic indexes of all foods out there? Yup: Foods made of wheat. Ironically, whole wheat is worse than white (though both are bad, of course). Whole grain and multigrain products improve the situation a bit, but remain triggers of high blood sugar despite the extra fiber and B vitamins.
    Note: I just think you should know the truth about wheat. #fb

    two slices of whole wheat bread have a higher glycemic index than nearly all other foods—higher than 6 teaspoons of table sugar, higher than a Snickers bar, higher than ice cream.
    Note: Our food pyramid is a blatant lie. Advising people to "eat more healthy whole grains" is wrong. #fb
  • David shared from Influencer: The Power to Change Anything, First edition (Hardcover) by Kerry Patterson, David Maxfield, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, Al Switzler
    a recent study showed that the family dining table is vanishing from homes at a rapid rate. A parallel rise in family dysfunction and discontent suggests that familial unity is declining at a similar rate. Could there be a correlation here? The idea is not that a drop in furniture sales will harm family solidarity. It’s that the dining room table is a significant facilitator of family togetherness. Do away with the table, and family members lose a fairly large portion of their time together.
    Note: I believe in the value of eating at the family dining table. It's healthy in numerous ways. #fb

    First, if you want people to change their persistent and resistant view of the world, drop verbal persuasion and come up with innovative ways to create personal experiences. Second, when you can’t take everyone on the field trip, create vicarious experiences.
    Note: Telling is not selling. Helping people by way of the experience is how to get the deal. #fb
  • David shared from Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think by Brian Wansink Ph.d.
    People who watch a lot of TV are more likely to be overweight than people who don’t. The less TV people watch, the skinnier they are.7 It doesn’t matter if they’re 14 or 44. It doesn’t matter if they watch network TV, cable TV, the Food Network, or the NASCAR Network. As TV viewing goes up, weight goes up, and there are good reasons why. People who watch a lot of TV exercise less and they eat more.
    Note: Another reason to turn off the tube. Apparently, it makes you fat. #fb
