Support This Blog Or I’ll Kill It!

You need a break. Enjoy.

I pay $3-12 to license many of the photos and diagrams here. I won’t steal someone else’s intellectual property.

Have you noticed how some blogs just fizzle out? No new posts for a year, then they’re gone?

One reason is that it costs money to maintain them. For instance, I pay WordPress $30/year to keep them from posting advertisements that would interfere with your reading pleasure. I also turn down many offers from advertisers who will pay me for access to my audience.

The biggest “cost” of the blog is my time that it takes to write posts.

I hope you find my writing worthwhile and interesting. You’ll find information here, at no cost, that should improve your health and longevity. What’s that worth?

If you’d like to support the blog, the best way is to buy one of my books, or recommend one to your friends or relatives. The second best way is to post a review of the book at Even a brief one.

I’d be grateful for your support. Your continued readership is also encouraging to me.

Steve Parker, M.D.

  2. LOL, thanks for the reminder that investment counselors often make: “there is no free lunch!” Yep, Feedback is the Breakfast of Champions, and we often forget that a good Blog Operator needs feedback to ensure someone is listening and gaining value from the efforts. I appreciate your efforts and have purchased at least one of your books for personal use and sent another to my (overweight) brother with diabetes. I’ve just lost 30 pounds on the Ideal Protein Diet and am moving toward the Maintenance Phase mid-FEB. Your Advanced Mediterranean Diet will be my guide toward maintaining a healthier weight and food diet life-style. Thank your for your Blog efforts! David
