‘Tis the season for thinking of others. Here is a reminder about some gift ideas that will have a major impact long after the tinsel is down and the tree has turned brown.

-The Nutrition and Metabolism Society asked in a recent e-mail, “Would you spend a dollar a day to save the life of a puppy? Please consider doing the same for your friends, family, and future generations.”

Your donation will support public education and nutritional research that can save lives. Support truth in science with a membership and/or a donation to The Metabolism Society at:

– Also, please consider a contribution to CJ Hunt’s fantastic documentary, In Search of the Perfect Human Diet. Read my previous posts about his project here: and here:

CJ recently received a significant donation from a group who wants to remain anonymous for now, but he still needs our help to cover post production costs, editing, and preparations for distribution of the four-part series. I’m sure that any amount would be welcome, but there are some serious perks for those who contribute at each level of support.

Go to CJ’s website at to join the Producers Circle and help him change the world.

– And don’t forget to pre-order Gary Taubes’s new book, “Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It.” All the pre-orders on Amazon will vest on December 28th when the book is released. Let’s get some attention by making his book open at the top of the Best Seller List. Also, write a review of the book on Amazon to help counter all the orchestrated attacks he will surely get from his critics. (Read the book first, which is more than most of them will do.)

The tree isn’t up (actually, haven’t even bought one yet), the cookies aren’t baked, the cards aren’t sent, and the elves haven’t come to help out, so I’d better get to work.

Enjoy the holidays, but take Tim Ferriss’s advice: “Eat like Santa; Look like Jesus.” You know how to do that.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

I've got my five-star review of Taubes's book ready to post at Amazon December 28. Apparently only Amazon Vine Voice members can post reviews before then.
