Regular Guy Reads of the Week

As I mentioned on Facebook, I'm going to do a weekly roundup of good articles I've seen on the Web. This is my first shot at it. Hope you get something out of it! And hit me up on Facebook or Twitter if you've seen (or written) something you think would work for the list!

What 2000 Calories Actually Looks Like: This is an older article but a real eye-opener. Are you being honest with yourself about your intake?
