We Have Winter, Yupiii!

Maybe this sounds crazy, but we are accustomed to very cold winters, with a lot of snow, not with a Spring weather in the middle of January like this year. I wouldn’ t want a harsh, nasty, long winter,  just a bit of snow for the children to play with and  for me, to enjoy…

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 control, opposed to any diet. Mindful eating “eating teaches you to…

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, why, I don’t know. And then, cooking such a recipe seems…

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? Oh, yeah? Nope, progress is so slow you have to have…

Happy to diet

Daily Prompt: Allergic

I confess, I’m kind of allergic to diets. I mean I’m not sneezing or skin itching or whatever else, it’s my mind that is allergic. And why shouldn’ t it be. Is any diet logic or scientific backed? Ok, maybe some of them, if you accept the idea that the results of a study involving, let’s…

Your Diet Project: Viable or Not

I’m against diets, in general. If you’re young and don’t have to much weight in excess, just change your lifestyle. Move a lot more, eat a lot less, eat good food, not junk bla bla, bla…. By now, you should know the lesson well. What if you’re a lot overweight? A human whale or elephant……

Treat or…

One parameter missing from most obesity studies seems to be the stress level. You see age, sex, some health parameters, how many of this or that one eats but nothing to describe the stress level, not even  a  personal evaluation. Oh, wait, maybe how many hours of sleep you’ve had.  Not so relevant, in my…

Reservations over diets

When it comes to diets, I’m having reservations. Each diet promises you a Holly land. Do this and that and you will be blessed. Actually it is hell on earth, anyone who has been through a diet knows this too well. And it seems nowadays a lot of people have reservations when it comes to the…
