The weakest link

If you treat the symptom of a disease and not the cause, you are one of the statistics.

The body is a kinetic chain and a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When you expose the body to too much inflammation, through years and years of poor lifestyle habits, you begin to pull the chain at both ends. Where the chain snaps is where your weakest genetic link lies. The problem with pharmaceutical drugs is they treat the symptom, not the cause. They go to work on where the link has been dismantled, without addressing what was pulling on the chain. Here's an example to illustrate: Giving someone a thyroid drug does not address what's causing the issue for the thyroid in...

Fixing hangryness

Eating six small meals a day will not raise the metabolic rate any higher than three square meals...or seventeen for that matter.
The hunger one gets from eating frequently is NOT the metabolism revving into high gear, it is a powerful hunger-stimulating hormone known as ghrelin. Upon completing a carbohydrate enriched meal, basal levels of insulin will rise. The subsequent fall in insulin causes ghrelin levels to elevate. Insulin and ghrelin work antagonistically to one another, much like a sea-saw effect. Ghrelin primes your strict eating schedule and is the culprit behind "hangryness." Sticking with a rigid eating schedule triggers a rise in ghrelin prior to mealtime, bringing about extreme hunger pangs. Besides those ravenous cravings, missing scheduled meals also causes sluggishness and irritability. The body adapts...

Mimicking mankind

Mankind hunted and gathered food for Millenia.
They walked for miles, climbed trees, lifted heavy rocks and sprinted to and from prey. This lifestyle approach today we call 'exercise'. We are going to mimic that. Mankind did all that in a fasted state. Not because they wanted to but because they had no other choice. If they wanted to eat, they had to earn it first - simple. No one was going to give them food. There were no cafes, drive thrus or delivery service. "If it's going to be, it's up to me" - was the philosophy. This lifestyle approach today we call 'fasted training'. We are going to mimic that. That is if you want to eat, you have to earn it first by training. Mankind found...

The power of intermittent fasting

Just imagine for a moment that the energy the body uses to function, equals the money you spend on a daily basis.

When we eat food, it gets broken down into glucose and glucose provides the body with an immediate source of energy.

Treat glucose like the money that's readily available in your pocket. It's there on hand to fulfil an immediate exchange for something in return.

Glucose is the exchange currency for energy in the human body, much like money is the exchange currency for goods and services.

When glucose enters the bloodstream, it is transported and converted in a reservoir of energy known as glycogen.

Overweight yet still starving

In the past, mankind ate lower quantities of food because it was scarce to find and rich in nutrition.
Nowadays, mankind eats higher quantities of food because it is abundant to find and poor in nutrition.  There is so much more 'food' available today but it is far from being proper food. More appropriately, what many people are presented with today is more or less, food like products. These food like products cause people to feel famished, incessantly overeat more of the same junk and get sicker and fatter as a result. People are being overfed and undernourished. They are getting the illusion of satiety with a full stomach...

TO LIVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE

If you are green you grow, if you are ripe you rot.
 
Success is not about the destination, it is about the continuing and never-ending improvement of YOU.
 
Getting there is not the goal, constant evolution is the goal.
 
The finish line is the starting line.
 

Be it to become it

Who you be, you eventually become.
That is what the word be-come means, the coming of the being. Whomever you are choosing to be right now, you eventually become it in the future. Yet there is no future. Everything that's ever happened, is happening right now - and everything that's ever going to happen, is happening right now. There is only one moment, the golden moment of now. All that you wish to become, you already are. You have it all now, you are simply not experiencing it. It's therefore up to you to reach into the sea of infinite possibility, calling forth that which you wish to experience now. You call forth that which you wish to experience now, via three main devices - thought, word and action. All three...

The nutritional book of mankind

Anthropology studies tell us that human beings have been on the planet for at least two million years.
It has been said that the human genome had fully developed, well before the beginning of the agricultural revolution - some 10,000 years ago. This means that our genetic material, our DNA, is a 99.99% carbon copy to that of our ancestor beings. Prior to the agricultural revolution, mankind evolved on a particular way of eating. If you couldn't hunt it, fish it, pluck it or gather it, you wouldn't eat it. It was as simple as that. It didn't come out of a packet, you couldn't refrigerate it or store it away for later consumption. You hunted, you feasted, you fasted - rinse and repeat. This is how...

FIve seconds is all you get.

There are golden moments of opportunity throughout your day.

These golden moments provide you with a choice in life. To do what you know you should be doing, or to continue doing what you feel like doing. Most of us seek the path of least resistance. Why is it so hard to do the little things that we know would improve our lives? Simple, what's easy to do is easy not to do. Yes, but why is it equally as easy not to do though? The mind has evolved to protect us from harm. It is designed to stop us at all costs from doing anything that might hurt us. We are not designed to do things that appear uncomfortable, scary or difficult. Our brains are trying to...
