Myra’s Story: “You don’t have to be perfect…”

The only thing I can see as a “starting factor” to my eating disorder is that I began taking birth control about the same time and started dealing with depression off and on. I have been battling with bulimia, bingeing and purging, since I was 19. Now, almost 32, I Read more…

Fish Oil

Ahhh…fish oil. A whole industry built around supplying us with something that should be a natural part of our food supply. Prior to the 1970’s meat and dairy in the United states was still grass fed so we received ample amounts of the main constituents of fish oil, EPA and Read more…

What is the Paleo Diet?

It’s funny, but in all the time that I’ve written on this paleo diet topic I’ve never really defined (in my terms) what I think constitutes a “paleo diet.” I laid out some general guidelines in the book and FAQ of course, but I’ve never done that for the blog. Read more…

Expedition Impossible: The Modern Gypsies!

I’ll admit it. I kinda dig reality shows. Well some of them. Anything with “Jersey” in it I prefer to wait for The Soup highlights to catch all the bronzed-boobs, nip-slips and cat-fights. But adventure shows, I am “in.” Now, what if we had an adventure show that had a Read more…

MovNat: Explore Your True Nature

It’s kinda funny…I’ve archived plenty of blog posts but I’ve never done it when I knew I’d not see the blog for 2-3 weeks. It’s kinda like writing material for your funeral or maybe I need to take more time away from social media more often. Wacky! Well, now that summer is settling in Read more…

My Training at 39

I receive quite a few emails asking what I’m up to with training and nutrition. Now seems like as good a time as any to do a little update on that. Birthdays are always a good point for reflection…see what’s working, what’s not and what trajectory you are on. (Note-I Read more…
