The China Study Explained

The China Study is considered to be one of the best and most thorough epidemiological studies on human health ever conducted. The New York Times, in typical absurdly idiotic fashion (like when they told us all about the WMD’s to help create a national panic that led to ‘Iraqi Freedom’), calls The China Study “the Grand-Prix” of nutrition/health studies. It was thorough no doubt. Way to go T....

Addiction Article

Hey amigos.  Just wanted to let the 180 faithful know that a lengthy article of mine on the topic of addiction was recently posted at another blog.  Please check it out.  There are some valuable lessons for everyone there, as addiction is something that effects us all in some way or another. ...

180 Kitchen!

I’ve got a new blog set up and it’s called 180 Kitchen!  It’s dedicated 100% to preparing healthy food 180-style.  I’ve got photos, I’ve got imbedded videos, I’ll be answering your food questions, and otherwise hooking my peeps up with divine grub.  Check out my first real post!...

Canadian Swine Flu Video

I’ve gotta give it up to Merc Daddy for posting this to his newsletter.  This is truly a solid video.  Top notch.  180 fully endorses...

Vegan Aftermath

My experiences after going on a two-week vegan escapade couldn’t be more reaffirming of the general conclusions that I’ve come to over my several years of study. It’s certainly worth sharing and pondering now that I’ve had some time to let the whole experience digest. Although I certainly enjoyed stirring things up in the low-carb community, pointing out many of the ways in which low-carb dogma...

Swine Flew

And so it is revealed, my girlfriend’s very clever Halloween costume idea – Swine Flew. No, you won’t catch me getting vaccinated. Sleep well, eat well, spend some time on your feet out in the sun – and you’ve got little to worry about. Then you can make fun of the paranoid mask-wearers and H1N1 vaccine-beggars  and the Pepsi-guzzling chip eaters that actually get this disease and have...

FUDA Conclusions

Nice work to those who voted on Monday’s post, It’s Over! You guys are sharp cookies. The vast majority of you chose the correct answer on both of the polls.  For starters, the meal that sent my glucose levels the highest was not the uber high-carb meal in which I ate all of it without fat or meat. It was, indeed, the meal which combined it all and also contained refined sugar and starch....

It’s Over!!!

The experimental diet is over! F.U. FUDA! For those interested, here are the fasting readings taken on an extremely high-carb/low-fat vegan diet vs. a low-carb/high-fat carnivorous diet. The first numbers were taken after pigging out on what were about to become forbidden foods. For example, I consumed an entire pint of heavy cream right before bed the night before the diet began. Aurora ate...

FUDA Day 13

I can’t believe this FUDA diet is almost over. I’m almost sad, but I’m sure a buttload of pizza tomorrow night will help me get over it. That’s right, pizza has been chosen as the mutual mixed-meal postprandial competition between Sunshine the carbophiliac and Aurora the carbophobe. In English, Aurora and I are going to eat pizza, a food with balanced levels of animal protein, fat, and...

FUDA Day 11

“Sigh” says Matt Stone as he listens to an interview between Gary Taubes and Jimmy Moore on filing a class-action lawsuit on the government… Yeah, I was just listening to a Taubes interview done by Jimmy Moore of “Livin’ la Vida Low Carb” lore. It was painful. It’s like, I love Gary Taubes so much. He makes the most sound and sophisticated arguments challenging the weight loss mantra of the...

FUDA Day 10

Both the girlfriend and I had some slight deviations in our diets yesterday, and surprise, surprise, our fasting glucose levels were both higher this morning.  I will also point out that Aurora has been exercising like a fiend the last couple of days, which certainly can’t help much either.  That adrenaline is triggering some glycogen release. My deviations included having some...

FUDA Day 8

Well folks, not much exciting happening here except of course that both diets are proving to be useful at dropping glucose levels. Our fasting glucose levels this morning were 80 and 82 mg/dl – both in the perfect range. My levels are remarkably consistent, having busted out a 79 or 80 for 5 straight days now. We are both feeling pretty good too. My skin is ridiculous, and my teeth feel great...

FUDA Day 7

Alright,so blood sugar control is still excellent. On day 6 I posted a fasting glucose of 79 and this morning an 80. This, in comparison with the GF’s 89 and 85 on ultra low-carb. This puts me right in the middle of the “perfect” range according to the work of Emanuel Cheraskin on dental health, who discovered that 75 to 85 mg/dl was the magic range. Once again, to quote Nancy Appleton: “Dr....

FUDA Day 5

We have a winner. This dietary experiment will forever be known as the FUDA Diet. “F.U. Dr. Atkins!” Kinda harsh treatment for a dead guy, but political correctness isn’t exactly the theme here. Whaddya expect from a guy holding a pig’s head that shares the same first and last name with one of the co-creators of South Park? “Page realized that the (dental) plaque, decay, and deterioration he saw...

Sunny D #4

“We do not remember seeing a single cancer case who had a correct blood sugar level, yet in most non-cancer cases this is easily obtained by means of a (refined) sugar-free diet alone.” -Melvin Page and Leon Abrams The correct blood sugar level was obtained by doing a fasting glucose test similar to what I’ve been doing each morning. The ideal level was hovering closely around the 85 mg/dl...

Day 3 of the Sunny D

It’s day 3 of the Sunshine days. Things are all well and good with the exception of my friggin’ bloated stomach. I knew better than to throw beans in my soup, but didn’t want to short-change Fuhrman and his bean-lovin’ ways. He loves beans enough to earn himself a name like Joel Sanchez or Senor Fuhrman. There was a radical change in the blood sugar tests this morning though. I busted out the 83...

My Name is Sunshine

First off, I’ve got a very important announcement to make for those of you that don’t frequent a ghetto supermarket like the one in my town. It’s National Doughnut Month! Yes, there is such a thing and we are in the throes of it right now comrades! Get out there and getcha self some. Secondly, I am now requiring everyone, for at least the next two weeks and perhaps a little longer, to refer to...

Summer Recap Part II

Well, I’m not going to totally go off on my summer diet. I did want to give a few basic details for all those interested. For the first time in several years, I did decide to experiment with a little ice cream. I chose Haagen Daz because of the short ingredient list and lack of indigestible substances such as Guar Gum, Carageenan, and/or Xanthan Gum. On my days off I would intentionally do...

Secret Revealed – I am Stephen Colbert!

Ha, ha, ha! Yes! Gina Kolata has appeared on the Colbert Report. It also appears that Colbert and I have the same sense of humor – alluding to Pat Robertson’s holy weight loss products and singing, “Do you like Gina Kolata?” Man that is weird. http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/86212/may-02-2007/gina-kolata For those of you who have no idea what...

Summer Recap Part I

My summer has been a flippin’ whirlwind. Apologies for the many highly-engaged followers who had many a question fall on deaf Matt ears. I’m back though. Full-throttle. I thought it would be interesting to give some highlights to what I’ve personally been doing and thinking about over the course of the summer – and how my health has been affected by my actions. This, of course, is not to be...
