    "Making Healthy Protein Choices
     
    1. Value variety. Most Americans get more than enough protein in their diet. The problem is that most of this protein comes from animal sources that are high in unhealthy saturated fat. Vary your diet by including healthier alternatives like beans, peas, and soy foods."
     
    It goes on and on.  I called to complain about the false info, but of course the answer was "It came from an ACE website, it's a reputable source."

    New Years health talk in the lunch room at work...
     
    Coworker: I started doing Weight Watchers again.
    Me: Oh?
    CW: Yeah, it works, I lost 30lbs last time.
    Me: Ummm....did it really "work" if you have to do it again?
    Coworker: I lost 30lbs last time.
     
    I actually feel like the "I'm doing WW again because it worked for me before" is something I hear a lot and just doesn't make sense.

    Since the recent U.S. News, and subsequently CNN.com, article ranking paleo really low among "diets," people keep pointing this out to me.  The author of the article gave it bad marks for not being sustainable because it's too restrictive. 
     
    Better stick to something less restrictive, like Slim Fast.
