The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Fat Land by Greg Critser - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Fat Land: 

How America got fat.

My favorite Greg Critser quote from the book:

"Some guy called me fatso."

Questions to ponder while reading Fat Land:

How much processed food do you eat?

Has the global agricultural revolution hurt or helped our diets?

My review of Fat Land:

A great look at the dietary mishaps of the U.S.

There is no single smoking gun.

Check your labels, check your waistline.
