South Pole trek fueled by butter and bacon
This article tells of a Canadian trio who have broken the record for travelling from the Antarctic to the South Pole, and they did it on a steady diet of bacon, cheese, and butter. I think it's amusing. There are so many people who like to tell me why the Atkins diet is so unhealthy for me, and how I won't have energy and whatnot, and then I read articles like this where sure, probably the main reason they brought these foods was portability, but also because they *give* energy. You don't need grains, even whole grains, to do that. Breaking a record with 6 days to spare? Thank you, thank you very much.
