Not What Everyone Wants to Hear: Protein in the Diet

The message of the meat eaters has gotten through to the general public: when you ask about what they eat, they know the answers they are ‘supposed’ to give and mention meat, meat, meat. Paleo is popular.

And, while it may not be a fad, it misses the mark by a mile as to the healthiest way to eat. Here, the Blue Zone take on things lines up with recent research: eat vegetables first, then nuts, grains, seeds and beans – that is where to get the majority of your protein.

Not a popular message, but not a new one either. Many will prefer to follow the voices that tickle their ears and tempt their eyes – willingly hypnotized into choices that will cost them dearly down the road. Follow the ‘narrow path’, not the ‘broad road that leads to destruction’.

Mental Rehearsal – Visualization

Neuro Science & Doing Tai Chi in the Dark

One thing tai chi people do, eventually, is train in the dark (or with the eyes closed). It has a profound effect on a number of things – but it effective in spades when it comes to training balance and the motor control that that implies. Here you can read about how profound that effect might really be.

This is just grape!

Researchers here are talking about the potential for treating depression with two components of grapes. It is important that you do not pay any attention to their message: ‘We’ll concoct a formula and treat depression, and we will all get rich selling the product we put together.’

That is nonsense, not common sense. The real news isn’t news: eat grapes and consume grape products because the result is health!

Aah, don’t get me started.

(I had grape ‘butter’, on top of nut butter, on top of sourdough toast, with my breakfast. What did you have?)

If you can not, will not, and do not eat the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables (7-10), then get whole-food supplements that are proven to provide those same nutrients – if you want to be healthy.
