Better living through bacon

It’s a brand new year which means that millions will be signing up for gym memberships, clinging tight to resolutions to work of that holiday poundage. One of the most popular methods in recent years has involved cutting the carbs and doing high intensity interval workouts. A new book called Eat Bacon Don’t Jog incorporates both of those philosophies in a pithy, irreverent style by Northern California bicycle shop owner and author Grant Petersen.
