Best Quotes/One liners of 2009:

Best Quotes/One liners of 2009:

The point being in your battle against weight loss, you need to start where it matters the most…in how and what you eat. From there you compliment your efforts with “effective” exercise…and not “excessive” exercise. Too many people are being excessive in what they do, expecting faster results somehow.
– Aerobics (Cardio) is Not Your Priority in Lasting Weight Loss

onesami

With the caveat that sugar intake should be VERY minimal, I’d rather go ahead and give my body the substance that it can process rather than some unknown chemical. … Again, better is a relative term. It’s better to smoke one pack of cigarettes than to smoke two packs. Cocaine is probably less harmful than crack. That doesn’t make it healthy. It’s even better to do neither.
– Real Sugar Vs. Artificial Sweeteners: Which Is Better?

one-scratch-head1

I eat clean 90% of the time so that the other 10% of the time, I can relax and do whatever. I can eat sushi without being concerned about the rice. I can dig into the chips and guacamole at a Mexican place before my plate-load of carnitas. I can have a drink or two while watching football with friends.
– Cheat Meals, Flexible Eating, and Dietary OCD

one-captain-caveman1

“Stimulate and don’t annihilate”
– Get Bigger Muscles by…Walking?

one-barefeet

In the end, we all just need to go back to the basics. Eat Real Food! Do that and you can forget worrying about the cardiovascular protection of omega-3s or how many egg yolks you should eat to lower your blood pressure.
– How A Paleo/Primal Eating Plan Improves Your Health; And Why None Of It Matters

one-brain-300x225

Along with trans fats, sugar is the worst thing you can put in your body.
– Marketing Lies: There Is No Such Thing As “Healthy Sugar”

one-rhan1148l

Perfection is an illusion, it means there is some final destination to be achieved (and disappointment to be had if you don’t get there). Strive for living daily instead, not trying to achieve a goal that your happiness is depending on. Your happiness is now.
– Deep Thoughts……More on Weight Loss, Health, and Living

one-2-friends2

So many people accept illness as a regular part of being alive. But is it really? Is illness the normal human life, an inevitable part of drawing breath? I don’t think it is.
– How Do You Repair Your Immune System?

one-freegirl-main_full1

Many people are overweight despite eating hardly any food…so while calorie deficit is needed to lose weight, it’s only in relation to how optimal the overall metabolism is running in the first place. Have a hampered liver and it will also negatively affect your fat burning metabolism.
– Speed Up Your Metabolism – Fatty Liver Disease

one-diet-and-exercise11

You probably noticed I left one off. Here’s a statement to ruffle some feathers: Do not drink soy milk. If you want to know why, go back to the anti-nutrient section. Add to that very high levels of omega-6 fatty acids in soy fat. It’s really not good for you.
– Nutrition In Milk And Milk Substitutes

onemilkman1

We have seen healthy societies with various %s (high and low) of carb intake but they all have one big thing in common…they all eat natural “real foods”. They also have another thing in common, once people from their culture move into a more “modernized” food environment, then the health benefits seen previously decrease dramatically.
– Are Low Carb Diets Over-rated for Health and Longevity?

one-low-carb

The reality is that humans started cooking food because it makes food more easily digestible, rather than making it more difficult to digest. There are some exceptions, but for the most part, this is true. And the only measure of how nutritious a food is, is how well the body can digest it.
– Are Raw Vegetables Healthier Than Cooked Vegetables?

one451px-arcimboldo_vegetables

If you don’t like something….change it or quit whining about it. Anyone can change their job, anyone can move to a different state, anyone can stop doing so much inorder to spend more time with family, anyone can make time for simple exercise, anyone can find ways to eat healthier. Dump the excuses and just take action to make a change now.

one-no-excuses
– Urgent Changes to Make in Your Vocabulary Today (for Health and Happiness)

one-irishnewskeithduffyfamily

Proteins and fat lowered a bit % wise, but carb% increased dramatically (primarily thanks to the whole “low fat” movement that could turn out the be the worst advice ever given). We are not saying carbs are the enemy, but we know that quality matters…..so let’s see where we are getting our carbs from. While fruits and vegetables have marginally increased, cereal grains and sugars have skyrocketed.
– Obesity, Diabetes, and Other Diseases vs Food Trends in Pictures

So knowing that pastured eggs are markedly more nutritious than conventional eggs, along with being more flavorful and safer, you have another reason to support your local farmers. Pastured eggs are more expensive, but they are also more nutritious. Check out your local farmer’s markets and buying clubs.

“If you told me you were going to jail and only had a barbell and didn’t want to get raped in the showers and could only do one exercise to put mass and strength on, then I’d tell you to do the snatch deadlift on a platform.”

If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you already know that I’m no fan of grains, whether processed or whole. Unfortunately, those of us that think such blasphemous things against those “wholesome” grains are an anomaly. So for those that still think whole grains are an important, healthy, wholesome, and necessary part of the diet, let’s look at just a few of the issues.
– The Real Truth About Those “Healthy Whole Grains”

one-whole-grains

It all boils down to the simple equation that if you put your feet in a stiff shoe, you are not going to use all the muscles in your feet. What happens when you don’t use muscles? They get weak. Add an addition unnatural stride (heel striking) with weak feet and you create instability at the base of your body (your feet hitting the ground). That translates up your knees, legs, back and creates compensatory movements (such as overpronation) and injuries.

Instability of the scapula is a major cause of shoulder issues, so my goal is to teach the muscles to work together to make sure my scapula is moving within the joint as it should be. And there are a load of muscles that connect to this bone: deltoid, traps, biceps, pectoralis minor, rhomboids, serratus, and rotator cuff to name a majority.
– How To Improve Scapular Stability For Healthy Shoulders

one-hands_in_air1

IF is not about starvation, it’s not about crash dieting, and it’s not about quick weight loss (even if results may happen quickly for some). To me it’s all about a lifestyle and lasting approach to improving your health, redefining your relationship with food, to reduce unnatural cravings, get back in tune with the natural survival design of our bodies, optimizing your glucose energy metabolism and just an easy and simple approach to lasting results.
– Intermittent Fasting has a New Name….Intermittent Feeding

As you can see, I don’t think that you need to 100% give up coffee or alcohol to be healthy. I enjoy both and am unlikely to go completely clean from either. If you stick with the a low intake of both and pay attention to how you feel after having them, there’s no reason that you have to be completely ascetic.
– Caffeine, Alcohol, And Health – How Much Is Too Much?

one-kitty-coffee1

The bottom line is that humans have been eating eggs, meat, and butter for a really long time without heart disease and cancer. Yet somehow, now heart disease and cancer run rampant and the food industry is always there to protect us from eating these wholesome foods.

Goal Setting Made Simple

Here is what I call the Bakhtiar Formula for setting goals and accomplishing them.

Bakhtiar Formula
1. Decide exactly what you want and write it down in the present tense.

Be specific.

Your goals should be clear that a child could read it and explain it clearly to another child.

(I need to lose 19 pounds of body fat, I need to get my waist down to 30, etc….)

Young Girl Writing 4

2. Set a deadline for the achievement of your goal.

Because of the fear of failure many people set vague and unrealistic goals and avoid committing themselves to a timeline.

As a result they have no benchmark or standards to measure their progress, and they eventually give up and quite.

( I am going to lost 19 pounds by March 1st )

bfdeadlinestressed

3. Determine the obstacles that you will have to overcome to achieve your goal.

Identify the major constraints that hold you back from achieving your goal at the present time.

Fully 80 percent of the reasons you are not achieving the goals are internal.

They result from your lack of some quality or ability, which is largely under your control.

Only 20 percent of your obstacles or difficulties that are holding you back are external, in other people or situations.

(Lack of time? Manage your time better, lack of knowledge? Hire a coach, Lazy? Get off your a**, etc….)

5. Identify the people, groups, and organizations whose cooperation you will require to achieve your goals.

bfhandshakefriends1

6. Make a plan out of your answers in the previous questions.

A plan is the list of activities organized by sequence and priorities.

A list organized by sequence means that you decide what you must do before something else.

When you organize your list by priority, you decide whats more important on your list and what’s less important.

bfpriority

7. Take MASSIVE ACTION on your plan immediately.

Step out in faith.

Once you begin, do something every day that moves you in the direction of your most important goal.
