it might not actually be your birthday, but something tells me it'll feel like it when you read this:

Thanks Robert. Now if we can just get him to come around on the "Continue to emphasize fruits, vegetables and whole grains" part, we'll know he has indeed seen the light.

It would be nice if Weil (and other health bloggers) would include citations of the studies he mentions. It sounds convincing when he says what the study said, but it becomes less convincing when I say that he said that some researchers said whatever.

It's a little odd that he seems to equate steak with ice cream.

Haha. I'm sure he was referring to foods with sat fat.
