I’ve been into health and fitness for most of my life. And I’ve known for a long time the kind of impact the right diet can have on a person. Through eating incorrectly, I’ve known periods of poor health and horrible productivity. Even today, as a healthy 57 year-old in great physical condition, if I try something in my diet and it doesn’t work, my health and productivity can quickly take a nose dive.
Which brings me to this week’s experiment.
I’ve been concerned for some time about the potential negative effects of too much meat, eggs, and animal products on the system. I understand that God allowed mankind to eat meat after the Flood. But I also know that the first diet He provided in the Garden was raw vegan: Continue reading “Starchy Vegan Made My Body Go to Sleep”
I’ve recently been discussing why so many are failing to implement health and fitness programs–it’s because health and fitness are NOT a priority.
But let’s say that you received that message and are ready to make health and fitness a priority. How will you guarantee the success of your program?
The power of habit.
Uh, okay,,, you may be thinking that the answer sounds pretty basic. But I assure you, it is the case–habits are that powerful. Anything you’ve achieved in your life–outside of a one-time fluke–has very likely been achieved via the power of habit.
This morning I was looking at one of my training books, as I am want to do before my workout. Just looking for ideas, and thought stimulation. The book is Garage Gym Athlete by Jerrod Moon, and it’s a great one, by the way. I highly recommend it. You can pick it up for just $2.99 at Amazon (and I’m not getting any affiliate cut on this one).
If you’re the kind of person who loves programs and are into a CrossFit-type of training (particularly with barbells) , then Jerrod is your guy. He’s ex-miliary, lives and breathes programs, and is a living testament to their efficacy.

Hello! There’s a lot I want to tell you, so please bear with me for a moment…
I have two openings in my schedule right now, and I want to use them to train two motivated people who are tired of being overweight, or weak, or held back by a body that just doesn’t want to do what they want it to do.
It the “they” I speak of “you”? If it is, please do not delay your comeback any further. I can help you. Because I have been you.
It’s a time for renewal. A time for many to travel–kids out, get out! To be outdoors as much as we can.
I have always believed in natural health–in sunshine, fresh air, natural movement, minimally-processed food, and proper rest.
As weather permits, I believe in getting outside for my workouts as much as possible. It beats a dark, smelly gym! Good for the soul too.
And thankfully, there really isn’t much needed to get in a good workout; other than, as exercise minimalist Danny Kavadlo has said, “Something to step up on, something to hang from, and something heavy.”
Many years ago, I took a cruise with family to the Eastern Caribbean. It was great! For exercise equipment, I packed my yoga mat–that’s it! And that’s all I needed. I did yoga in the mornings right inside my cabin, I walked around the ship and islands that we visited, I swam in the beautiful, tropical, turquoise water, ran some on the treadmill in the ship’s gym, and did some post-cardio stretching. That was plenty and I never missed a beat. Continue reading “Spring is Here–Work Out Anywhere!”
