I can't believe I've added a men's fitness guru to my reading list, but James Fell defies the muscle-bound, testosterone-addled stereotype: a skeptic in the fitness and dietary industry AND an outspoken critic of the Men's Rights Movement. You can tell by the photo on his blog that this is a guy who doesn't take himself as seriously as he does his commitment to science and education. Read his take-down of the Paleolithic Diet which he humorously dubs "the Scientology of Diets."
In my fitful way, I'm back to swimming laps three times a week and plan to gradually increase my walking. Huffing five blocks up a downtown hill the other night to see PZ Myer's talk at Town Hall convinced me I had to start doing something to regain my stamina. Perhaps some sensible weight loss / exercise advice will bolster my resolve.
