Welcome all seeking refuge from low carb dogma!

Quotes to Live By?

The thing is, it’s very dangerous to have a fixed idea. A person with a fixed idea will always find some way of convincing himself in the end that he is right.
~ Atle Selberg

Three guesses where this comes from and the first two don't count!

What's really funny is that a google search for "it’s very dangerous to have a fixed idea" brings up this blog post, which is barely a half-hour old, before it brings up GT's reference.

Reminds me of Jimmy Moore and his determination to make prolonged low carb dieting work for him, regardless of accumulating health problems.

"I can't imagine where I'd be with this had I not gone low-carb in 2004."
- Jimmy Moore

@Andrew: Dr. Andro of SuppVersity blog (who seems to know quite a lot about hormones and such) commented that the testosterone cream probably wasn't the best solution and maybe he should consider something else (don't remember what at the moment). He also said perhaps a more "sane" amount of carbs might be in order. Jimmy would have none of that ... maybe that word *sane* .... In any case Andro is going to be on Jimmy's podcast in March, I think, which means he'd be taping some time this month. Could be interesting.

@Tonus: Gotta love it! The other day I was trying to Google Books GT and hit enter too soon so it just did his name. The single image for a summary of images was from this blog. It was the Che Quiero Taco Bell dog from this post: http://carbsanity.blogspot.com/2011/09/exasperating-gary-taubes.html
Today in Chrome there were several images, it's still the first, followed by the Stevens Tech "Doughy" one ;-) Ha!!
