Thanks to Stumbleupon (wikipedia entry), I’m discovering a slew of useful sites hidden in the “invisible web”, which comprises an estimated 90% of all Internet sites. Here’s the latest interesting sites I’ve discovered:
How to Lose 20 lbs. of Fat in 30 Days… Without Doing Any Exercise (stumble reviews) – while I typically ignore “lose weight fast” type articles, this one by Tim Ferriss was worth reading. I wrote a response, modifying Tim’s rules to be more compatible with lifestyle change.
CalorieConnect (stumble reviews) – nice AJAX-powered calorie lookup for common foods. The list doesn’t seem to contain many restaurant-specific items, but it’s a fast and easy resource for quick food lookups. It appears there might also be a nutrition and exercise journal service – if so, I’ll add it to the list of services I’m reviewing.
What happens if you drink a can of Coke right now? (stumble reviews) – chronicles how your body reacts to a Coke during the first hour after consumption. Fascinating article, I’d love to find more like it.
You never know what kind of health and fitness stuff you’re going to stumble across. I’m reviewing every site that inspires me enough to “like” or “dislike” it – you can follow my reviews and join up as a friend at http://charshman.stumbleupon.com/. Stumbling yourself? I’d be interested to see the interesting things you’re finding – leave ‘em in the comments, along with your stumbleupon ID so I can join your friends list.
