I did an interview with the New York Observer on standing desks. The reporter messed up my diet, but otherwise it’s a great piece.
“John Durant eats raw foods and lean meats [WTF?] as a follower of the Paleo Diet, and owns a lifestyle brand themed around mimicking ancient human behavior in modern times. He tried to build a standing desk in 2006, using a milk crate and a variety of objects he found around the Midtown management consulting office where he worked as an associate. The contraption lasted for two days. Standing at work felt awkward, and, judging by the sideways glances of his colleagues, it looked equally odd. âCoworkers think itâs goofy and they tease you about it,â he explained. âIt makes them feel like theyâre lazy. Itâs like being the one person at the office birthday who turns down a piece of cake. âJust eat the cake!ââ He sat back down for four years.”
I eat raw and cooked foods. I also eat lots of fat from both plant and animal sources.
Here’s the whole article, interesting throughout.
