business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Associated Press reports on University of Minnesota professor David Bernlohr, an obesity researcher who found that he was getting fat. So he came up with what he calls the Northwoods Diet, which basically has him eating three meals a day but in smaller portions – and never, ever eating after 7:30 p.m.

Breakfast reportedly is heavy in carbs, which Bernlohr says “stimulate production of insulin, a hormone that helps cells convert blood sugar to energy.” Lunch is a mix of carbs and protein, and dinner is heavy on protein. He calls it as common sense approach that can work when combined with basic exercise.

It certainly has worked for Bernlohr, who has lost 40 pounds in a year.

It is amazing how basic, old-fashioned common sense approaches continue to make sense and work.
