Thursday, March 22, 2012      4 comments

I've come to the conclusion that the last remaining difficulties on my wellness mission all revolve around my leisure time. I've tackled and subdued most of the other lifestyle problems that I've had over the years, so it's time to beat this one... Read more
About Hope
Friday, March 16, 2012      5 comments

Another Myth Bites the Dust!
Thursday, January 26, 2012      10 comments

People will bemoan the fact that a low-carb diet is "so much more expensive" than what they're currently doing. Wrong. I keep my financial information in a set of spreadsheet worksheets, which makes it very easy to analyze where your m... Read more
