The OliveTomato

Here is the link to the latest Post by my favorite source for Mediterranean anything, but diet and lifestyle in particular. She does a great job of balanced coverage of the issues that come up in the research and the press around all things Greek and as it relates to the Mediterranean Diet.

A lot of people have a lot to say about a lot of things: Most don’t know as much as they would lead you to believe. She does.

You have to be careful who you listen to…

Truth: On Many Levels (Seth Godin)

Relentlessly lowering expectations

We always compare performance on a relative basis. “Well, it’s better than it was yesterday…”

Toddlers, for example, seem like geniuses compared to the babies they used to be.

Some people around us have embraced a strategy of always lowering expectations so that their mediocre effort is seen as acceptable. Over time, we embrace the pretty good memo or the decent leadership moment, because it’s so much better than we feared.

And some? Some relentlessly raise expectations, establishing a standard that it’s hard to imagine exceeding. And then they do.

If you’ve been cornered into following, working with or serving someone in the first group, an intervention can be rewarding. For you and for the person trapped in this downward cycle.

Raising our expectations is a fine way to raise performance as well.

Fasting and the 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine

A student of fasting for over 40 years, I began Blogging about it some eight plus years ago, in a post on Juice Fasting. In fact things have gotten to the point where we have to put “fasting” in quotes, to clarify what we mean because it is becoming as meaningless a word as “natural”.

Here there are a number of Posts on the subject.

This Blue Zones Blog Post reviewing the work of Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi, who did win the 2016 Nobel Prize for Medicine as a result of his work on autophagy (a process that happens when you abstain from food – or by the way – to some extent when you exercise), is the most important Post on this entire Blog!

My wife thinks that this Wedge of Awareness Post is my best, but here, in this Blue Zones Post is a gold mine of amazing information that can and would change your life for the better – no matter how bad off or how well off you are right now.

It is not something that you do; it’s something you don’t do!

It is free. It takes less time than whatever it is you are doing now. It is simple. And, with just the simplest and easiest of rules to follow, you can not screw it up. You can do it in progressions: start where you are, and gradually lengthen the time between “supper” and “breakfast”. Simple. Drink water (you know the water that I recommend, but get the best water you can find and afford).

(This needs a disclaimer: do this only under the supervision of a doctor – you may be too sick for the cure – it may not be for you. Perhaps there is some valid reason why you can not stretch out the time between supper and breakfast (you might be in the 1% – a guess – for whom this is not appropriate). If it turns out to be a rough ride from where you are to get back to health, you may want a partner to help guide you. Include your doctor in the process, it will education them as much as it does you!)

I could get more emphatic, but…

… it would not do any good.

Now it is up to you.

New Words in Nutrition: Polyphenols

Recent research done on fruit flies indicates that polyphenols have an important influence on longevity.

That is nice. What is much nicer is that recent research on JuicePlus+ indicates that it supplies these polyphenols and they are both absorbed and assimilated into your body.

If you haven’t started taking JuicePlus+ yet, why not? If you are ready, contact us at the office and we can help you get started (425-348-5207).
