RIP athlete

Brian Maxwell, inventor of the Power Bar and champion marathoner died yesterday at the age of 51, of a heart attack. Between him and Dr. Atkins it makes you wonder, YET AGAIN, which way is up with dieting, exercise, nutritional studies, etc. Like how every five years things flip-flop: I have no idea of the current healthfulness of beef, caffeine, fats, salt, eggs, or butter, because studies change the answer more often than Madonna changes personas. Make up your minds already.

Have you noticed, too, that all too often the health professionals that you see are in terrible shape?! How many pudgy nurses or smoking doctors have you come across in your life? More than a few, I'd wager. Physicians, heal thyselves.

I want to be one of those people you read about living to the ripe old age of 96 on a diet of whatever-the-hell-I-want a whiskey with dinner. Mmmm...whiskey dinner. ;)
