So I’m not the only one BariatricEating is moderating.

After my blog post yesterday suggesting people ask for the science behind Journey, people started questioning the missing posts and the questionable science.

Now?  Their facebook page is completely blank.

I’ve been around the Interwebz since before a GUI really was in place and there were text-based links for the BBS system that WAS the Internet.  This was back in the dark ages before teh Google or even teh Windows.  (Yes, there was a time before time..  I’s remembers it.)

So I recently had a blood draw done at my PCP.  And I really like my PCP because he’ll draw what I want and really not fuss too much about it.

This last time, I got a copy in the mail with no notations.  I’d already looked at it, noticed what needed to change, planned those modifications (ie my vitamin K needs to go up) and moved on.

While in Texas, apparently, I got another copy, this time with notations by my PCP, who, obviously means well but knows nothing about vitamins.  As a point, when I was bruising he told me to discontinue ALL vitamin K supplements as they would make my bruising worse.  Umm, hello?
