The Godfather of Fitness

I was just looking for a Jack LaLanne quote, which I found at Wikipedia, of course.

Reading the story on Jack LaLanne (a Chiropractic Doctor, by the way), I am just struck by what an amazing example he was. I remember as a child in the 60’s doing the floor exercises with my mother… In the 70’s his name and story were there as I read the works of Paul Bragg. In the 80′ his name always came up in the bodybuilding, muscle and fitness magazines that I read. I think it was the 90’s that he was famous as the juicing celebrity – not to mention the feats of strength that he would perform as he celebrated each decade of life – stunts that no one attempts to duplicate (that I know of).

He was something.

Oh, and the quote that I was looking for? It is the last sentence of this longer quote of his:

“Dying is easy. Living is a pain in the butt. It’s like an athletic event. You’ve got to train for it. You’ve got to eat right. You’ve got to exercise. Your health account, your bank account, they’re the same thing. The more you put in, the more you can take out. Exercise is king and nutrition is queen: together, you have a kingdom.”

What is the point of a Nobel Prize?

Well, it is too honor the contribution of the folks who receive the prize. But it is also to apply what has been learned to our daily lives – and thereby enrich those lives – or that might be one point, anyway.

So think about this year’s Nobel prize in terms of what it means to do all the things that people do that messes with their circadian rhythms – because it is profoundly impactful to their health and well fair.

Which is more difficult to come up with?

This morning I was told a story about a woman who will be having heart surgery next week. It will cost  in the neighborhood of $100,000 dollars.

All I could think about afterwards was how much JuicePlus+ $100,000 would buy.

When people choose not to take JuicePlus+ they usually mention price as a big part of the reason: too hard to come up with a couple of dollars a day for whole food in capsules to cover the serving of fruits and vegetables that they do not, can not, or will not get in their daily diet.

Question: What happens when you chop all of your raspberries down in the fall?

Answer:  You don’t get fresh ripe raspberries until September the following year! But they are amazing.

Eating Timing and Skin Cancer: I wish I had known this earlier!

Of course the research on humans is yet to be done, but if you are a mouse – and maybe if you are a human – it matters whether you violate the 8-to-8 Rule, it terms of skin cancer risk.

It is precisely because we have such a feeble grasp of the nature of nature that we really should pay attention to what we do know…

The Importance of Breath

“For many people it seems difficult to believe that changing breathing patterns can have such significant impact on mental and physical health. Not to mention performance and recovery.
It is the lowest hangning fruit and very few poeple are picking it. Instead many are looking for complicated methods or become dependent of pharmaceuticals.”

– Paul Silfverstrale, Wudang Practical Tai Chi Chuan

Here is his recent Blog Post entitled Nasal Breathing: https://wudangtaichichuan.wordpress.com/2017/07/29/tai-chi-chuan-qi-nasal-breathing/

It compliments, perfectly, all that I have said on this Blog on the subject, including the very recent Post on mouth breathing (the problem).
