Recognizing Roadblocks in Weight Loss

I’ve just read another batch of good advice for people fighting obesity and, as usual, I’m not quite agreeing with all of  it. Here is some of my “weight” wisdom, based on my own experience. Your experience might be different, who knows?   Control…

The Good Aliens in Our Body

We, humans, are colonized by at least as many microorganisms as our body cells. A lot of scientists even say they are more, like twice or even ten times more. We inherimicrobiomet some of these  from our mothers but during our life this alien…

A Lifestyle Strategy

I’m not a fan of big words and strategy is one of them. But when it comes to your lifestyle, you really need one, “a plan of action designed to achieve a long-term or overall aim”. If your aim is to be healthy, wealthy…

Carbs and Ex’s

“Don’t eat carbs in the evening!” “Don’t eat carbs, eat fats” “Don’t eat carbs, eat protein” “Eat good carbs with lots of fibre” “Eat only good carbs and good fats” and so on, and so on. All these carbs and fats mantras they haunt…

I can do science too

I stumbled upon an amazing book,  The Personalized Diet by Eric Segal and Eran Elinav. I cite from the Amazon review  “individuals react differently to the same foods. A food that might be healthy for one person is unhealthy for another. In one stroke, they…

Know Thyself

Nosce te ipsum, “know thyself” is a saying as old as the world. Building your new lifestyle, you have to pay attention and learn your body signals. Some call this “mindful eating” or “attuned eating”  and even propose this as a strategy for weight…

Cooking for My Diet

I don’t know about you, but I’m not enthusiastic when it comes to the fancy recipes of nowadays, be they “healthy” or “comfort”. For one, too many ingredients, most quite expensive for me. Sugar or honey and salt are a must in such recipes,…

I Need a Brilliant Discovery

I don’t know about you, but I’m so bored with the existing status of the nutrition science, I feel like going in a desert and howling to the moon. For sure, eat less, move a lot more and, in no time, you’ll see progress?…

Happy to diet

One problem with keeping a diet is that, from the very start, you expect it to be so unpleasant that you’ll become forlorn, you’ll feel like loosing all the good things of life. And, yes, most of the diets are quite unpleasant, hard to follow, …

A simple strategy

Ok, you’re huge, a human whale. Only you don’t live free in an ocean but in a society whose beauty ideal is slim, slim, slim. And this is the least of your worries. You don’t need me to tell them all, by  now you…
