Dr. Mike’s “The Fallacy of the Calorie”

Published

There is some good advice to be found in this book if you can sift through the posturing and insults about the intelligence of the general population (but, Dr. Mike tells you, you’re not dumb if you’re reading the book—natch). BMI is taken too much into account. High fructose corn syrup is garbage. There’s just a lot of ancillary information to absorb before getting to the crux of the book: Dr. Mike’s detox program. It may work for some people–and it thankfully isn’t over-reliant on liquid fasting–but in the end it’s another program to follow. And, in the end, this book is self-promotion; Dr. Mike has another book called Eating Well, Living Better, after all!

The takeaway of The Fallacy of the Calorie is this: if you want to read Dr. Mike’s book, don’t get it mixed up with the similarly titled The Calorie Fallacy by Dr. Libby. Also, eat in moderation and don’t eat food with a lot of preservatives.

The Fallacy of the Calorie can be found on Amazon.

For the second year in a row, the Small Press Expo (SPX) is proud to announce it is a sponsor of the National Book Festival, presented by the Library of Congress. As a part of this sponsorship, SPX is bringing Gene Luen Yang, Liza Donnelly and Bryan Lee O’Malley to the National Book Festival.

The primary goal of this sponsorship is to bring creators from the indie comics community to the National Book Festival to provide greater exposure for them and their works to the diverse audience that attends this prestigious festival. As a partner with the Library’s Center for the Book, Small Press Expo looks forward to help promoting their various literacy initiatives and events. More information about the National Book Festival can be found at http://www.loc.gov/bookfest.

Gene Luen Yang is a writer of both graphic novels and comics. His book, “American Born Chinese,” was the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award and the first to win the American Library Association’s Printz Award; it also won an Eisner Award in 2007. “Boxers & Saints”, a two-volume project set during the Boxer Rebellion, was a National Book Award finalist, noted on Booklist’s Top 10 Religious Books for Youth, awarded Library Journal’s Best Book of the Year and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His latest work, The Shadow Hero, “explores the immigrant experience through the genre of superheroes.”

Gene was selected to be the first graphic novelist to be one of four authors to give a presentation at the gala event for the National Book Festival, whose attendees include National Book Festival authors, members of Congress, the Librarian of Congress Dr.James Billington, as well as other Library of Congress senior staff.
