Paleo Man!

I did not care for my primary care physician at all, so I followed a recommendation from the fine folks at our local natural food store and switched to a very, um, different sort of doctor. Lane Sebring, M.D. spent more time with me in our initial consult than anybody I've ever gone to see before. Here are some highpoints of our visit:
  • He extolled the virtues of hunting and gathering.
  • Vegetarianism and low-cholesterol diets are both vile propaganda.
  • I can choose to juice up my libido with a liberal course of testosterone.
  • His favorite breakfast: a 6 or 8 ounce buffalo steak with a side of spinach.
So he's taking me off statins ("What are they for? Certainly not for your health!") and putting me on the Paleo Diet and I'm going to turn into some kind of primal man. Now we're talking!
