When I bothered to check out the stats on my new blog tonight, I was kinda surprised by how high the numbers jumped up. I was getting a lot of traffic from:
Interesting, I thought. If you don't know Anthony Colpo, he's the author of "The Fat Loss Bible" and "The Great Cholesterol Con". Personally, I haven't read either book, but I've seen recommentations by Paleo bloggers to read "The Great Cholesterol Con". Anthony Colpo was cited in the comments of the interview below.
I scanned through the cited post, reading some parts more carefully than others. I commented back. One of my observations was accurate, the other not so much. My bigger mistake was using some negative terms to describe parts of the post like falsely reports and misrepresents. I should have known better, negativity only breeds more negativity. This is one of my character flaws that I've recognized for many years, and my sarcasm easily displays itself in electronic form.
Anthony ripped me a new one. You can read it for yourself if you are curious, but if there are kids in the room, beware of some nudity. Somehow, he got the idea that I've been a low carber for years and poorly performed in the 2004 Chicago marathon (although 3:13 isn't all that bad for a recreational runner) due to a low carb diet. Actually, I just started eating low carb in March of 2011. For the record, Anthony could be spot on about athletes needing carbs for performance. I don't know. But I'm curious if conventional wisdom has it right or wrong, so I'll continue on a path of self experimentation and reading about others experiments.
I appreciate getting the traffic boost(I went from an Alexa global ranking of 14 million to 10 million, woohoo!), but I apoligize for spreading bad karma. Something else to work on.
