Friday, June 28, 2013      13 comments

If you have ever judged anyone who is obese in your mind or if you have ever been judged by others for being obese please watch this 20 minute video. It is about a physician who is honest about his mistake and is now spending his life to change ... Read more
Lifeguard training and chance to use it
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      7 comments

My daughter just finished her lifeguard training and was told that most lifeguards never actually get a chance to use their skills for years, something that makes it harder for them to stay alert in the long run during hours on the stand. But ... Read more
Do calories matter?
Monday, June 24, 2013      13 comments

This may seem like a ridiculous question to ask. It is obvious that calories matter, but not in the way most people think. The calories we take in do not determine our weight. The key to understanding calories is to ask the right questions abo... Read more

What I am interested in is two things: - If money and health were not an issue, what/how would you eat? Feel free to add other info, like how often you would eat, if you would cook at home more or eat out more, if you would eat by yourself mor... Read more

Still sprinting a little and trying hurdles
Wednesday, June 19, 2013      16 comments

I can't say that it has had any effect on my speed during long runs yet, but some of the sprint workouts are actually fun. 200 meter repeats are short enough that they are not very uncomfortable and they still give me a feel for what running ... Read more
Running for fun?
Saturday, June 15, 2013      7 comments

I listened to a talk by Christopher Mc Dougall today and he raised the question about whether we are running for fun or to run a good time. I have always been firmly in the camp of running for fun and my very slow times, showing my aversion to... Read more
Is there any harm in giving up wheat?
Tuesday, June 11, 2013      14 comments

Some people consider the evidence that wheat is dangerous and acting like a powerful drug in our body as not strong enough to eliminate it from their diet. If your reason to eat wheat in the form of flour, processed foods, cereals, bread etc. ... Read more
Sugar - how to handle it in everyday life
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      15 comments

It's addictive, it's necessary for our body to function, it's toxic, it gives energy, it's everywhere in our food supply, some people don't care for it, some foods need it (ever tried 100% dark chocolate?), it's in most fruit and some veggies, a... Read more

Is sugar toxic? Food addicts, this is for you!
Wednesday, May 29, 2013      13 comments

This is the latest blog post by Peter Attia and it will require you to think and deal with a little bit of science, but I think it's understandable for the non-scientist as well if you are willing to take a little more time for this well-written... Read more
A sprint workout - Wow, did I really do that?
Friday, May 24, 2013      10 comments

The last time I did this much sprinting was in Junior High and I HATED it. I was getting short of breath very quickly and felt I could not breathe. In retrospect I would call it exercise-induced asthma, or maybe it was dairy-intolerance induced ... Read more

Do you live to eat or eat to live?
Monday, May 20, 2013      12 comments

It is really that simple, note that I said simple, not easy. People who live to eat make me sad. As enjoyable as eating can be, there are so many other joys in life that we miss out on if we give food this much power. I believe that people w... Read more
