A certain blogger who shall remain nameless is reading a book i just finished, and so far just DOESN'T LIKE IT. If this turns around, the blogger assures us, we'll be informed....
Where do i start? Well, there's a reason she is no longer on my right-hand-column list -- it has to do with egotism.
To be honest, i'm rather disappointed with "Grain Brain" too. The author doesn't provide much meat on the carcass he serves up, and he's too fond of telling us what exciting things he's planning on communicating LATER which never seem to live up to the promise. He's probably trying too hard to be accessible to the average reader, and only succeeds in being bland and tepid.
But the biggest gripe the aforementioned blogger has to communicate at this point in her reading is -- Perlmutter suggests most people are best off eating no more than 60 grams of carb per day, and that's just WRONGGGGG! She needs lots more than that ... and by the way, she's a young mother/professional-woman/crossfitter.
It obviously never occurred to this egocentric idiot that not everybody belongs to her demographic, although she apparently feels that HERS is the only one that really counts. If you're not a Harvard-trained crossfitter, you obviously don't deserve to live, let alone have a book addressed to improving your health and well-being.
And by the way, she REALLY enjoyed and endorses that new book from "the trust-fund boy."
