Quit fighting it

If getting in shape and staying that way is a constant struggle, odds are you’re doing it wrong. People who are in shape all the time either

  • Hit the genetic lottery, or …
  • Found a way to eat that they like and that works for them.

What they have in common is that they’re not spending all their time struggling with what they’re doing. And that’s the secret. “What I can stick to” is at least as important as “what works best”.

You can eat great food and get to your ideal weight:

  • Without radical changes.
  • Without feeling guilty every time you indulge.
  • And without ever counting a calorie or weighing a portion.

Once upon a time we all knew disease was caused by “bad humours”.

Imagine the things we’ll all know tomorrow.

Hang the code! Paleo for non-pirates

I don’t call this a paleo blog for the same reason I don’t claim to “eat paleo”: I’m not a good rule follower.

If you’ve been on the internet for more than three minutes you’ve already learned that people will argue about anything. And some people put the most energy into fighting people who almost agree with them.

I’m one of those people who almost agrees with paleo, but I’m not strict about it. Here’s why.

Steak over charcoal

Too much protein in middle age ‘as bad as smoking’

OMG if I eat steak I’m gonna DIE!

Or, like something like that. I guess. According to Medical News Today.

Two new studies conclude that low protein intake may hold the key to a long and healthy life, at least until old age.

How’s that? Low protein is good for a long life, until I’m actually old. Can you explain that?
