Love the Asian Paradox article. I eat a ton of rice, as I'm sure anyone who knows/reads me for a week can tell, but a) I am also extremely active and b) I put a whole lot of wonderful nutritious stuff on top of that rice. I can understand that is not the case for everyone, but I loathe when people cut it out altogether just to "diet" or go carb free. It's frustrating. It doesn't have to be that way.

Thanks also for posting the article from Rookie that I sent. It's a tough lesson for women (and some men). I still struggle.
