I am motivated to write because I don't feel comfortable with my picture being the first thing you see, regardless of how good I feel about it! I have been asked a lot lately about what I do. I still haven't figured out the best way to answer this, as what I do is not what a beginner should do. The most important thing is to find out what works for you, but you should start with Mark's Daily Apple. This helps you get rid of the REAL bad stuff and is a good starting point for all of the research each person needs to do on their own. I have said many times, I am not the expert here, but what I am doing is definitely working. However, to answer the original question, I eat Primal, lift heavy things and I do not use shampoo, soap (in the shower), shaving cream, lip balm, lotion (suntan or dry skin) and any of the other stuff I know our ancestors did not use. I do not eat breakfast very often, because I can't picture my ancestors eating a big breakfast before the hunt. I train for triathlons with sprint training, not chronic cardio. I have been alcohol free since Feb, but I consider that a personal choice as I think we have always tried to get wasted one way or another. I go to bed to read at 9 and wake up at 5:45 to work out every weekday. I eat more protein before dinner because it does not destabilize my insulin, but after dinner I don't worry about anything I eat. This means minimal carbs and fruit/fruit juices during the daytime. Please have a safe and enjoyable Holiday!
