Find & Follow Your Truth

find-your-truth-then-follow-your-path-blog

Four years ago, I began documenting my physical – and very much mental – dietary transformation.  I called it TRUTHOLOGY, because it described my personal quest to discover the optimal human diet.  Over the course of the last few years, I have come to find that there are multiple truths and the optimal human diet is subject to the individual.

As I stand here, about to face my imminent demise, I would like to reflect upon my short life on earth.  I was taken away from my mother shortly after I was born and never saw her again.  I will never know who my birth father is.  I am only 5 years young….but I am tired, weak and ready to die.   Continue reading

Say goodbye to yo-yo dieting once and for all

“I’m going on a diet.” Have you ever uttered these words? If so, what did you mean by “going”? Did you plan on returning? I’m sure you didn’t. The sad fact, however, is that diets are prone to fail and a round trip voyage is practically guaranteed. Based on the numbers, 90% of people who lose weight will gain it all back….sometimes even more!

Diets can be much like a rubber band.  You can stretch yourself to accomplish just about anything, but often times the rubber band will snap back to its original shape!  Many people spend their lives stretching the rubber band back and forth repeatedly, which is otherwise known as yo-yo dieting.  

A better approach to losing weight is to skip the diet concept altogether and instead make a lifestyle change. The idea behind changing your lifestyle is that the modifications you implement will be long-term and the effects will be permanent. In other words, imagine stretching the rubber band and then applying it to a hook….never to snap back and return to its original shape. Sounds easy, right? I’m kidding, obviously, but I do have some advice to share which may help out. Continue reading

Drink ’em if you got ’em

Recent research suggests that obesity has surpassed smoking in terms of ill health effects.

However, consider the disparity in media coverage (i.e. paid television advertising) warning us of the health implications of smoking cigarettes vs. eating junk food.

Having said that…based on statistics alone, is drinking a soda not unlike lighting up a cigarette?  I’m not condoning or disparaging either, I’m just saying they are relatively equal in terms of health effects, so we should be aware of the consequences of our choices.

Here is an interesting chart from the article describing sodas effect on the body: Continue reading
