Idaho Cheerleaders | 09/22/08
In a shameless plug for traffic: Idaho Cheerleaders ditch Skimpy Uniforms after Complaints from Fans. I could have used some cheerleaders in my grudge match with Tim last night. After abandoning my beloved spread offense I was able to eke out an OT win in our first game before he bludgeoned me something like 58-21 in the second game.
As part of my ongoing Get Healthy movement I was required to read Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy and it's a frightening book. Just like I no longer trust Google to give me accurate results now that I know how easily those results are manipulated, I feel like I no longer trust the government to give me an accurate idea of what I should eat. The food pyramid, as defined by the USDA, is apparently controlled largely by lobbying groups and is not at all what your body needs. What your body needs, the "healthy eating pyramid" is unfortunately not at all what I like to eat, with things like potatoes in the "you'll die" section. According to the book, fats were made into the "bad guys" when in reality only trans fats are really terrible. The bigger problem is the simple sugars found in white ______ (bread, potatoes, rice, etc). More than anything it was sad to read how our government has dumbed things down because we are apparently too stupid to understand there's a difference between frying things in olive oil and beef fat. Well, maybe we are that stupid because 60,000 people just showed up for a Palin rally in Florida. I hope they're serving donuts and baked potatoes.
