Recently I joked around about starting a “180 Hot Chicks Club” designated for the first 180 women who managed to hit a basal axillary’temperature (without fever) of 99 degrees F or higher on a Vicks digital’thermometer. First 180?members will receive a free t-shirt (once there are 180 members)!

Okay, that t-shirt may be an empty promise. However, if there really were 180?girls hitting that temperature following my general ‘rest and overfeed’ recommendation?for achieving metabolic healing (via HED/RRARF or the?milk diet and “chillaxin'”), I probably would take the time and effort to?create a t-shirt for that. That would be pretty outrageous.

It is official by the way. There are now 3 prominent members of the 180 Hot Chicks Club…

1) Recent inductee?Kathy C. has gone from the low-97’s to 99 in 3 weeks (while gaining 15 pounds, but “feeling like superwoman at the gym”)! She’s old enough to have a daughter?graduating from college by’the way – if some of you “I’m too old to be a 180 Hot Chick” gals are demoralized by some of these hotties.

2) Milk Maiden Elizabeth Walling of http://www.livingthenourishedlife.com/

And, to my delight…

3) Sarah Braun who did a guest post only?7 weeks?ago on her adrenal fatigue after years of fighting the diet war. See how far she’s come since then…. CLICK HERE

In other news, please go check out the short guest post I did at Chris’s excellent blog:? Zen to Fitness. Chris is all about a relaxed, enjoyable, level-headed,?and sustainable approach to good health – and we are thus big fans of one another. CLICK HERE

Last, and certainly not least – Stephan Guyenet has done an excellent?podcast that is?more or less an oral narrative of everything covered in 180 Degree Metabolism. He was mad-dogged for it too, as this podcast appeared on a?blog by a typical eat less and exercise more diet author. It was painful to look at the comments and?listen to the follow-up podcast that the blog authors did to debunk Stephan (who is, in no uncertain terms, the f’ing?MAN). Seems that all those people losing weight really wanted to believe that it was off for good, and was?in no way compromising their metabolism or appetite. One guy likened hunger to “tired muscles” from working out. Oh boy.

Anyway, enough about that. I highly recommend listening to it. It’s all about leptin, the set point, what happens when you go below the setpoint (uh-oh), how the cause and cure of obesity remains unknown – but speculation points to omega 6, refined fructose, white flour, and a diet with low nutrient density, and how?any and all efforts to help overcome obesity must focus on lowering the set point, not just lowering body weight via calorie restriction. Those who have read?my new eBook will find virtually every word that he utters to be strikingly familiar. CLICK HERE
