@ned the word of God is not being spoken tonight but our high school holds their band concerts in one of the local churches.

Someone on the Tweeters asked to tell them what I am proud of accomplishing this year. Here's my list:

1. Grow the user community I am responsible for: community.checkpoint.com
2. Reduce my A1C to the normal non-diabetic range
3. Maintain 100lb/45kg of weight loss with and despite 175k miles/281km of airline travel

Been a busy year.

So are carbs really bad for me? I'd say yes.


Did anyone see the Amazon commercial where they used Can You Feel It? Why do I get the feeling Michael Jackson rolled over in his grave? I’m sure whoever owns his music rights is quite rich.

Gary Taubes at Low Carb Houston, 2018

A proper investigative journalist who went down the diet rabbit hole some years ago only to discover everything we’ve been told since the 1960s is completely wrong.

Been a while since I’ve been able to sit on my patio. It’s not too bad out here for a late fall afternoon.

Just reviewed my lifetime miles on United and Delta.

United (going back to the early 1990s): 409,233
Delta (going back to 2010, becoming my primary airline in 2015): 532,222
