Gary Taubes, author of Good Calories, Bad Calories, a book we highly recommend to those more scientifically inclined, has a new book coming out, called Why We Get Fat: What To Do About it.  He also has an interesting blog.  Check out his post, The Inanity of Overeating. (Thanks to Steve N. for bringing this to our attention)

    Beginning on the 15th of this month, I will be a full-time crossfit athlete once again. I am doing a month on, with mostly crossfit, and a few runs, swims and bikes thrown in, until spring, when I will be racing again, and only doing crossfit a few times a week. It’s time to get faster and stronger again. I can’t wait to see all of you more often and to do some serious work.
    xoxo,
    Mo
