Far be it from me to take issue with the guys at Ace becoming metros concerned about their waistlines; it is a function of age. Also, as Gabriel Malor points out, physics.

Blaming our food rather than the real problem, which is that we eat too much of it, is de rigueur for fad diets. It's the preservatives, they say. Or that evil high fructose corn syrup. Or (for the truly far-out) the dreaded "toxins." If you think corn syrup is part of the problem, here's an idea: eat less of it.

Ace is an Atkins enthusiast, apparently. For me, it is has just been a question of moving the body a bit more while putting a little less food in the body over time.

Just as well as I have a television appearance to contend with presently. Kathy Shaidle, Bob Tarantino, Jason Cherniak and I are guests on the Michael Coren Show, August 14. I have enough to worry about avoiding a human rights complaint without inflicting too much Flea upon Canadian viewers.

I am relying on the great beyond to upload the event to YouTube.

That's one hell of a lineup. Other than Jason, I mean.

You will notice I said nothing about you ordering that salad and sparkling water instead of steak and beer.

Too much Flea? Balderdash.

Will Mr Coren allow you to make some music while fading to commercial break? Fans on the west coast who can't see your live shows are hopeful.
