I borrowed that caption from Dr. Donald W. Miller after I watched his captivating lecture today on YouTube. This is a video everyone must watch! I found it both educational and highly entertaining. It's about 53 minutes long, but entirely worth every minute of it. I like the fact he brings up a whole host of studies and states the facts and clears up the misconceptions behind them.


As I watched this video I kept screaming out loud "THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I ALWAYS SAY!!!" Of course my wife who was watching with me kept telling me to 'Hush Up Dr Know-it-All', while simultaneously rolling her eyes and laughing at my adolescent antics." She said I was acting like the Giants had won the Superbowel again...Ha ha, I just wrote Super bowel by mistake, not Superbowl; is that like a euphemism for megacolon (just a little GI humor for everyone today :-) I am sure my non NY Giant fans out there can go off on that typo, but this a G rated blog, alright maybe sometimes PG 13, so be nice....

OK, I confess, I was jumping up & down every time Dr. Miller would repeat or show a study that I relate to my patients on a daily basis; I guess giving ghost high fives and thumbs up, with the cool head nod of "Yeah, that's right..who's the man now, huh..." while watching the video classifies as 'adolescent.' I guess what got me excited about the whole video was that I didn't know about Dr. Miller and this was the first time I had come across this video. I also feel embarrassed because I should've come across this video a long time ago.

If only more docs would open their minds to understand the truth about nutrition. My next phone call is going to be to Dr. Miller; let's see if they put me through :-) to relate to him that calories mean nothing in human nutrition as I didn't hear that point made in his lecture.

P.S. I'll let ya'll know if I actually get to speak to him. Going to find his podcast he did with Jimmy Moore now and listen in.
