    One thing you should look out for in a nutritionist is someone who likes to eat. Far too often I meet nutritionists who seem to follow a textbook with everything they put in their mouths. They clearly know what’s good for them, but if they don’t ever tamper with what’s bad for...

    Johnny Carson used to have a joke about it. A friend of his had sworn off coffee, cigarettes, alcohol, red meat and sex. The guy was doing just fine, Carson quipped, until he committed suicide.
