I'm tired of people looking at me with disgust or confusion because I do not eat junk like the average American. Aren't you constipated without eating fiber? Aren't your arteries going to clog from using bacon fat to cook? What exactly do you... (more)

I had about 3/4 tsp of sole this morning before my workout. I felt fine for the next few hours. I did have a rather salty lunch (broccoli with tamari), but it's common for me to eat a lot of salt. I've stayed very hydrated and had nearly 100 oz... (more)

Tabata - google it, briefly shown that short duration high intensity exercise is way more efficient. combine that with some intermittent fasting like 16/8 and a Paleo diet. Works for me.
