    OMG - these people must have bottomless pockets. Their members should be asking for an accounting of where the money is coming from.

    According to Tim Noakes' twitter feed, the HPCSA are appealing the judgement in his favour :rolleyes:

    Crikey! They must be gluttons for punishment. The mind boggles :wideyed:

    Wonder what their grounds for appeal will be.

    Thanks once again, @Indy51. Love the updates.

    One quote to take away from this, mentioned by the female host as having been made at the end of an earlier talk by Tim Noakes (maybe stick it on my fridge door !): "We're changing the way the world eats - one meal at a time"

    :)

    brilliant read! loved it.
    Interested to see the comments underneath it too. Lots of people saying the article was too long. Hysterical! If they can't be bothered to read an article, they are kind of doomed to keep making the same mistakes, aren't they?

    A very good article, a well thought out and presented argument. I found this refreshing, since I too try to follow the same principles, having developed a sensitive Bulls**t detector mechnism myself.

    One group of nutritionist bloggers/ magazine authors I have particular difficulty with are the Health & Fitness / body building fraternity. Magazines such as Nature spring to mind.

    I am not personally a follower of Tim Noakes, but I support his basic research efforts. I think his advice is more aligned to athletes and as a sedentary person, I think my dietary needs should be different. However, I am pleased that his recent legal battle is now resolved in his favour.
