Very cool! Just got off the phone with Oz Garcia, who's known as the "Nutritionist to the Stars."
These offers are fabulous!
I do hope McAdams takes Oz up on this geat offer.
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, yesterday, I lamented Rachel McAdams' misleading comments to AOL, in which she revealed that "drinking maple syrup" was one of the secrets to her slim figure, and I urged you NOT to follow her dismal, disastrous "dietary advice."
Horrified by her comments, I then consulted a number of experts -- physicians, nutritionists, etc., who also warned of the dire consequences of her maple-syrup, blood-sugar bouncing beverage breaks.
In fact, I just received two more e-mail responses from shocked physicians.
Dr. Metzger cautions: "My fear is that this story will provide a reason for misdirected obese teenagers to begin drinking maple syrup to lose weight." She continues: "It is incumbent upon the press to take responsibility for their role in disseminating this type of misinformation."
Mark Hyman, M.D., co-author of Ultra Prevention, former co-medical director at Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires, who's now editor in chief of the peer-reviewed Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, notes that "Maple syrup can help you lose weight -- if you eat nothing else and don't have too much! Otherwise, I agree that the whole idea is a little ridiculous."
