2 What's Your Opinion of The "Health & Wellness Blog"?
Speaking of health (or lack thereof), I should probably mention a wellness blog I recently found, which will very likely be of some interest to you:
Health & Wellness Blog
I'm curious to hear your opinions on this blog. Do you think that it offers sound advice, based in facts & solid research? Am curious to hear what health professionals would make of this site as well.....
Also, I'd like to share with you an article I found on TEF (the thermic effect of food), which is, if you don't know already, a very hot topic right now in the worlds of nutrition & wellness:
Ultrawellness Blog Post on TEF
The above site appears to be authored by, to quote the blog/site directly, a "respected medical consultant, New York Times -bestselling author, lecturer, and practicing physician Mark A. Hyman, M.D., ...a leader in the emerging field of functional medicine."
Just to be on the safe side, I'd still recommend practicing a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to authorship of websites. ;-) Guess I'm always suspect about a person's motivations when I know that they're also trying to sell me a product in the same breath. ;-)
Anyhow, back to the subject, TEF. As you may recall, I've talked about this topic several times before on this blog. While I don't claim to be an expert on the topic, I have done a lot of reading about TEF & have previously attended lectures from well-respected health professionals at Canyon Ranch on the subject. So I do atleast have some idea of what I'm talking about. ;-)
I definitely think the topic merits further investigation & discussion, is worth bringing to the attention of a larger audience.
Anyhow, enough about this. I'm curious to hear what you think. So, after reading the above-referenced articles/materials, please let me know your opinions of the articles/sites posted on these aforementioned wellness blogs. So comment away!
