Carbohydrates are Energy!!!!

So,  I was watching the Biggest Loser last night (which I love, and some of the inadvertent discoveries they have made are awesome and changing the way we look at morbid obesity) when something happened in the show and I realized I had another topic that desperately needs to be addressed!   I’ll talk more about some of the groundbreaking discoveries the show is making, but first…my tirade.  There are 7 contestants left on the show this season, and they were… Read more »
