I try and eat healthy! I really really do. I mean, I obsess over it probably because I am inundated, day in and day out with patients who suffer the effects of the nutrient devoid Standard American Diet. Some folks chalk dietary obsession up to vanity or some impossible desire for immortality at the cost of culinary enjoyment but assuredly, neither is the case. I just don't want disability, plain and simple. And nothing can safeguard you more from disability than a clean diet! Sometimes life gets in the way and we have to eat on the go... that's where this page comes to the rescue!
I have a major sweet tooth and deciding to go Paleo was a challenge! Then (apparently my parents didn't hug me enough as a baby) I decided to given nutritional ketosis a go! Life almost lost all its meaning until one day I discovered a treat glistening in the glorious light emanating from the golden horn of magical unicorn riding across a rainbow cloud of puppy laughter. And this treat was KetoBrownie... and it was good.
Consuming healthy fats create the feeling of "satiety". You may be familiar with this feeling following a big (and healthy) meal. It's not bloated, it's not "busting at the seems", it's simply satisfied. When we are satiated, we are content and focused. This is the perfect zone to be in when starting your day. I incorporate this with a 116-18 hour fast and it gives me the energy till well past noon.
I don't take too many supplements in pill form but KSM-66 is the exception. KSM-66 has many documented effects including reducing cortisol levels, anxiety, and inflammation. It's also shown to give your immune system a boost.
As a father of two small kids and burning the candle at both ends and in the middle, my quality of sleep can take a beating. KSM-66 combats many of the negative side effects of this. It's good stuff... try it out!
One of the benefits of coconut oil besides boosting immunity, decreasing obesity, reducing blood pressure, improving cholesterol, lowering blood sugar, nourishing hair and skin, improving thyroid function... (to name a few)... it contains a medium chain triglycerides. These are fats which can be directly converted to energy without having to be processed by the liver. So, Onnit isolated these MCT Oils and packed them into a potent supplement! I add this to my coffee before a workout!
Whey? NO WHEY! Most paleo protein powders claiming to be “paleo” are derived from whey…but whey protein is dairy and not paleo friendly! PaleoPro uses lean beef and whole eggs. I went on a 4 day drive with the fam to FL (2 down/2back) and I took this along for the ride as eating a restricted diet on the go can be tricky. I just put two scoops of this with water in the morning and threw it in the cooler. The only set back was having to pee out the accompanying 20 oz of water on the side of the highway!
I went to a concert around 15 years ago and there was this guy in the parking lot with a blender powered by a weed whacker! I thought that was pretty cool. I was also in my early twenties and thought doing a headstand on a keg was cool too...sooo.
Rather than bring lawn equipment along with you on trips, pick up a blender bottle. There is nothing worse than drinking some protein and swallowing that undissolved glop from the bottom.
Not really a supplement but made me feel better at the end of a long day in the office.
Caution balance boards are guaranteed to decrease your reproductive capabilities as no one in their right mind would want to reproduce with a fool standing on one! BUT... what happens in private ;-)
Balance boards are a level-up from those weekday warriors who claim they are somehow superior athletic specimens because they stand at their desk! Try standing on a chariot while fighting dragons! Because that's how you will feel after adding this little guy to your primal prescription of excellence! One more exclamation point!
Sulforaphane is probably the most important supplement that you should add to your daily regimen. Here is the catch: it only seems to be activated by the mastication(chewing) of broccoli sprouts! Why? It's complicated but luckily I wrote an article about this panacea over here for you to check out! But if you're lazy, here is the short of it. The compound is created when enzymes are mixed together by chewing (like crushing and shaking up a glow-stick). It is shown to reduce types cancer, Alzheimer Disease, inflammation, control blood sugar, blood pressure and gives you a huge energy boost! So... sprout yourself some sprouts and stay healthy. below is all you need to begin:
