Jimmy Moore To Sally Squires: Lay Off My Eggs!

Filed under: In The News — @ March 27, 2008

If you are even a casual reader of health journalism these days, then I’m sure you’ve run across the regular columns from The Washington Post health and nutrition columnist named Sally Squires. Her regular “Lean Plate Club” feature includes lots of news and commentary on the latest developments in the world of diet and living healthy. Unfortunately, Squires comes at it from the conventional low-fat, low-calorie, low-cholesterol, everything-in-moderation yadda yadda yadda approach that has dominated our culture for decades now.

And I’ve had my run-ins with her too: she dismissed weight loss bloggers like me as mere “amateurs”, I chided her and other so-called “experts” for giving weight loss advice when they themselves are overweight, and I even praised her for her column about having a wide-open weight loss effort. You take the good with the bad, I suppose, but Sally Squires is back again with some decidedly BAD dietary advice regarding eggs.
