Colored male and female sign vector

If there’s one thing that seems to get overlooked more than anything else when it comes to physical health – it’s hormones.

Don’t believe it?

Okay, we don’t have empirical evidence, but start asking people that you’re close with about their hormone levels.

Ask them if they know if their testosterone and/or estrogen levels are high or low. Ask them if their doctor has ever checked it, or even brought it up in conversation.

I think you’ll start to notice a few things rather quickly. [Continue reading]

The Mob Has Been Selling You Fake Olive Oil For Years.

OliveOilScamThat’s right.

The Mob has apparently made the transition from money laundering to selling all of us canola oil disguised as the far more healthier (and more valuable) option: olive oil.

All these years we’ve purchasing the ” healthy” cooking oil instead of the sludge used at McDonald’s  –   We’ve actually been buying the McDonald’s sludge all along  –  but at double, sometimes triple the price.

I have to admit.. this hurts. I’ve spent significant amounts of money buying olive oils.. We’re big advocates of the health benefits of Omega-3 rich olive oils. Surely all of that delicious olive oil couldn’t have been the same bland stuff that seeps out of those devilishly delicious golden fries?

Well, maybe not all of it – but many estimate at least half of it is.

Meet Mother Nature’s Perfect Macronutrient Ratio.

MacronutrientCellStructureIf you’ve ever attempted to stick to a diet that required you to count each and every calorie consumed..

Then you may well know that it isn’t the easiest thing to do. Fortunately… There is a better way.

Unfortunately, this “better way” seems to be basically over-looked anytime the Paleo diet, or nutrition in general, is brought up for discussion.

Knowing how to “piece together” meals in order for them to have optimal macronutrient ratios, is a foundational component to evolutionary nutrition.

As more and more people come around to realizing that the way in which they’ve been eating has set them up for a myriad of potential health related problems down the road, it’s important that they don’t jump out of the frying pan… only to land in another, even hotter, frying pan.

And such is the case for many that have been searching for the diet that will actually provide them with the life-changing results that they want..

When expanding your understanding of food and it’s affects on your health.. Having a solid grasp on macronutrients is absolutely essential in order to see the big picture.. Continued nutritional education is the other critical component of the Paleo movement that sometimes gets over looked.

Below, we’ll not only discuss how to make sure your macronutrient game is right, we’ll also talk a bit about why proper macronutrient ratios are so important.

The Truth About Diet Soda and Your Health.

DietSodaDiet soda has been the saving grace for many thousands of dieters..

Desperate for just one sip of that sugary, syrupy, carbonated nectar that most all of us have known and loved at one point or another.

The problem is, diet soda hasn’t actually been the “saving grace” so many thought it was..

In fact, It would be more appropriate to label it a crutch, a justification, a “success”, a distraction..

But what the marketing of diet soda has really done was divert a massive amount of people’s energies – that would’ve otherwise been used to make changes that were actually worthwhile.

If it seems like a bit of a stretch to say that a “massive ” amount of human energy has been wasted directly as the result of diet soda.. Well, I suppose I could see that point.

Just bear with me for a minute.. Consider that many, many thousands of people drink soda on daily and consistent basis.. I’ve personally known people that literally drank Dr. Pepper as if [Continue reading]

RehabDietImage

Have you ever just felt unhealthy?

Most of us have.

Even the most dedicated health nuts among knows that next morning feeling, after a night where you didn’t just fall off the healthy eating train.. You completely derailed it.

One night is one thing.. but the truth is, many of us go through weeks, months, and even years of giving in to these self destructive eating habits.

One, at some point, must start to consider the damage that has been done at a fundamental cellular level – and whether or not it can be undone.

Feeding our bodies some twisted mixture of a diet that includes everything from a vast array of modern day chemicals and preservatives, to a variety of genetically “enhanced” foods, and malnourished animal meats, will inevitably take it’s toll on the biological make-up of your human body and it’s ability to function.

It’s really only a matter of when. [Continue reading]
