So far, I have found that food families make very little difference for me. My intolerances are all over the board wherein I’m intolerant of one food in every family! Many of the intolerant foods are things I ate all the time, but many are not.
Sadly, this leaves me nothing to go [...]
If you read Tara Parker Pope’s article The Fat Trap, you might be led to believe that weight loss is difficult and maintaining a weight loss is a herculean feat. This is just not true.
A four-year post-weight loss study by the NIH shows that motivated people *do* keep weight off. I weigh 50 [...]
In January, Men’s Journal had a terrific article about fitness by Daniel Duane. The gist of it is that you should pass on the treadmill and elliptical and lift heavy. If this is news to you, go read it.
On the heels of that, they published a real stinker in February. It starts [...]
Don Matesz has a gem of a post discussing Steve Pavlina’s raw vegan diet experiment(s). Pavlina, like Seth Roberts and Tim Ferris, does a lot of self-experimentation and then blogs about it. I do like much of what all three of them write. Pavlina’s post “How to Become an Early Riser” is [...]
After years of long study of nutrition and diet, I seem to be coming around to the idea that you can either have carbs or fat along with your protein, but not both. When I saw that this appeared to be Zoe Harcombe’s thing, I bought her book right away.
I think there’s a lot [...]
I read a number of blogs from Paleo eaters, and while I enjoy them, I’ve been seeing a lot more…excuses lately. These so-called excuses are almost always about non-paleo recipe ingredients.
Part of the problem is that every day paleo mostly consists of meat and veg and maybe some fruit for dessert or some nuts [...]
I cannot believe I’m about to link to the Huffington Post, but this article really gets to the meat of the so-called obesity epidemic.
In 1977 America changed its health advice. In a nutshell (or, more likely, an ADA approved Mars bar): Eat more starchy foods, eat more carbohydrates, saturated fats are bad. If that sounds [...]
I entered the suggested “safety and comfort” reducing diet for my ideal weight into Fitday.
It’s a little short on potassium and calcium, but those could be brought up with the “clear broth” suggested if it were made with bones. Potassium can be supplemented with NoSalt.
Here’s the food list. Pretty standard diet material.
I’d lose [...]
On our last trip to St. Louis, I did a bit of tidying on our enclosed back porch. I had set this cookbook aside for the future because I figured it would be interesting. This cookbook has at the beginning a plan for a reducing diet. The whole beginning of the cookbook [...]
