Grab a cup of tea and sit down for some good reads. It’s the Wholesome Weekend Roundup featuring my top health and wellness links from around the web this week.
How the Ketogenic Diet Affects Running Performance – This article clearly has some biases. A ketogenic diet improved my running performance and lowered my bad cholesterol markers. But to each their own…
What You Need to Know About Marijuana and Breast Cancer – This is interesting. However, I think there are better therapies to spend your money on…such as organic food and grass-fed or pastured meat. Eating well is far better for treating breast cancer (or any cancer really) than marijuana could ever be. I’m not opposed to the idea of it helping though.
American’s to Pay More for Sugar – Yes! A sugar tax is a great idea. I’m not one for taxing people at all. But this one I feel might be necessary to offset the rising medical costs that a diet high in sugar has caused in our country.
12 Healthy Foods That Help You Burn Fat – Yes to all the things on this list, except for whey protein. My body has been telling me I need to add coffee back into my life. I was in Utah last week and drank some at my friend’s house. It was so good! I know I said no to caffeine, but it’s all about listening to my body.
Reclaim the Joy of Childhood – I am all about avoiding the news. Well major headlines that is. Especially anything having to do with President Idiot and politics in general. Health news I’m cool with. But all other news is depressing for the most part. Ignorance is bliss.
A Third Of All Humans Are Now Either Oveweight or Obese – This is not a surprising statistic, sadly. But it’s disappointing because it’s so treatable. Something has gone horribly wrong somewhere because humans are not designed to be overweight or obese. Something needs to change.
“Everything in Moderation” is Dangerous Advice – My mom says “everything in moderation” all the time and it makes me cringe. Would you give someone with a peanut allergy peanuts in moderation? No. Would you give an alcoholic alcohol in moderation? Definitely not. So why would you give a sugar addict sugar in moderation? There is no such thing as ‘moderation’ when you’re an addict.
4 Ways of Making Sure Your Telomeres are Long and Healthy – ‘Telomeres’, much like ‘mitochondria’, is a fancy new buzzword in the health and wellness scene. Do you know what to do to keep yours long and healthy?
Two Reasons Conventional Medicine Will Never Solve Chronic Disease – Money and ignorance. Okay, I made those up…kind of. But read this article. It’s really insightful.
12 Benefits of Near Infrared Sauna Therapy – I so desperately want a house so I can buy a near infrared sauna to put in it. I’m nerdy like that.
Have an awesomely healthy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
