Following Dr Fung’s fasting protocol of three, thirty-six-hour fasts per week has really helped with my glucose levels. I eat pretty much what I want keto-wise, and I did some experimenting to see how much very, dark chocolate I can get away with on eating days. Not as much as I hoped, but still more … Continue reading Fasting Update
There were some leftovers in the fridge that I played around with to spice up my yolk only omelette. My better half had made tacos for herself the night before (I was fasting), so I took some taco meat, homemade salsa and manchego and folded it into my omelette. This was maybe the best omelette … Continue reading Omelette Odyssey Continues
We’re at the end of the line folks. The final chapter is essentially how to follow a paleo-diet. This is not a surprise as both authors have advocated paleo elsewhere. The only real difference now is that “Many have used this type of diet [paleo] successfully but have failed to consider the importance of food-based … Continue reading Eat Like a Nutrivore
After another summary of the book’s key arguments, which is really unnecessary, we get to this chapter’s crux: can monocrop agriculture be replaced with regenerative systems and feed the planet’s population (give or take a billion people)? The short answer is yes. However, our authors admit a problem: it takes more land to “produce well-managed … Continue reading Feeding the World
Some readers will recall that I was hit with some really bad pseudo sciatica before Christmas. It’s long gone, thank God, but after Christmas I was waking up with some lower back tightness. Six weeks ago, I got a minor flare up of pain and a hint of sciatica again. I went back to my … Continue reading Inversion Table for Back Pain
Long-time readers will know I have some hens in the back garden. Gerty, Ester, Rosebud and Ginger give us four eggs a day. That means I eat a lot more egg yolks (I’m allergic to the whites) than I ever did in the past. Egg yolks are one of the more nutrient dense foods out … Continue reading Egg Yolk Omelette with Tomato, Basil and Cheddar
This short chapter is a bit misleading. It is really just a review of the arguments made in preceding chapters rather than giving the chapter title much of treatment. Monocrop agriculture is not the way forward. Meat and animal products should be at centre stage when it comes to healthy diets and sustainable agriculture. Meatless … Continue reading Why Eat Animals If We Could Survive On Only Plants?
Our authors make the case that for many vegans and vegetarians meat is vilified in order to demonstrate their own moral superiority over barbaric, knuckle-dragging meat eaters. If it was only about personal health choices, then the vegan mobs wouldn’t exist. It would be a case of live and let live. A fascinating aspect of … Continue reading Why Did Meat Become Taboo?
I said a couple of weeks ago that someone suggested I read Dr Fung’s The Diabetes Code if I wanted to beat the dawn phenomenon. Well I finished the book. It helped with the dawn effect and a lot more. It’s a gamechanger. I’ve been following his fasting programme for two weeks now, and I’ve … Continue reading Diabetes Code Follow Up
I think readers can guess Rodgers and Wolf argue the answer is a emphatic no. How do they make their case? Oh, so many ways. Their approach is “death by a thousand cuts.” Death to anti-meat arguments that is. Let’s dig in. A lot of this chapter revolves round the idea of “least harm.” Human … Continue reading Is Eating Animals Immoral?
