For The Love of Food

Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup.

Just FYI next Tuesday March 8, at 6pm PST, I’ll be participating in a live chat hosted by Monica Reinagel, the Nutrition Diva.

I’ll be joining Monica, Ben Greenfield of BenGreenfieldFitness.com, and Gloria Tsang of Healthcastle.com to discuss the pros and cons of breakfast. I’ll be broadcasting the event here at Summer Tomato. For more info check out Nutrition Over Easy.

This week around the web people are learning to love fat again, disrupted sleep cycles can mess with your metabolism and how your thoughts can influence your habits.

I read many more wonderful articles than I post here each week. If you’d like to see more or just don’t want to wait until Friday, be sure to follow me on Twitter (@summertomato) or the Summer Tomato Facebook fan page. For a complete list of my favorite stories check out my links on Digg. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

    Why is it that you can’t see any way around Vitamin D supplementation? You live in sunny California, right?

      I live in foggy San Francisco at a high latitude. Even with my best attempts at sunning in the brief breaks in the clouds, I still tested at way below healthy levels.

      If you live very far north or south (+/- 40 degrees), even when the sun shines the light isn’t direct enough to get you most of the vitamin D production you need.

    RE: New adiposity scale

    Very interesting. But we already have an easy measurement that requires no calculations – waist circumference. BMI has its drawbacks, but I’m skeptical that clinicians will ever use an anthropometric test that requires more measurements and more calculations (it’s hard enough getting them to calculate/discuss the ones we already have). Unfortunately the problems with BMI – the fact that there are large ethnic and inter-individual variations in disease risk for a given value – will probably be there for BAI as well (I could be wrong on this one, so I’m eager to see how it performs in larger studies).

    I’m curious to see how the new BAI scale pans out, and I think it’s smart to keep working on better ways to use anthropometric measurements to calculate chronic disease risk, but I’m skeptical about its longterm impact on the way that we assess risk.

    Either you need to get out and meet a wider variety of people, or I really need to try kale chips.
