I’ve really appreciated David’s perspective as well.
As for the topic: I really miss the blog posts. I’ve learned way more from the comment section in them than from anywhere else. Reading the accounts from average, normal human beings has brought me way more useful information than just being told how things are from Matt himself.
The forums are great, but without the blog posts, discussion here is definitely declining. I could be very wrong, but I’d imagine traffic to the site will have decreased as well, which defeats what I believed to be the purpose of making this change in the first place.
Thanks, Amy and Alatoras- It’s funny to me that I’m now a voice for moderation, since in the past my views on diet were often a bit extreme. Of course, the more extreme I was, the less healthy I got.
I’m not sure how I became a moderator here, but it does seem that the three most regular moderators here lately (me, Thomas, and Amy) are also some of the biggest proponents of a moderate approach to diet. Maybe that explains how we got our titles.
Agreed! I miss having everyone chime in on the same thread.
(Whatever happened to Julia G?)
Thomas, I tried finding the 180 degree facebook page you mentioned (I’m assuming this is different than just “liking” Matt’s 180 degree health page). I couldn’t find the group on Facebook… Is it under a different name, and is it possible for anyone to join?
