Environmental Pollution in Your Area (US)

Watching Mike Mutzel on YouTube and he is speaking with cancer survivor and expert Dr. Nasha Winters on how you can let the body heal itself through diet and other techniques.

She mentioned the following website where you can find out how toxic your local environment is by entering your zip code.

I lived in a heavily industrial area as a kid and I was not surprised at my results (bad).

Here is the website: scorecard.org

I recommend you watch the video (and all of Mike Mutzel’s outstanding interviews).

Swing and a Miss for Wink

OK. Tried the Wink desserts you may have seen advertised on Facebook. Bought 8 pints of various flavors. With two special deals, I got them for 43 bucks and change.

I give them props for the effort but I won’t reorder. They don’t begin to touch Halo Top in flavor or texture.

The Good Men Project: Intermittent Fasting for Men’s Health

I totally get the science behind tossing calorie counting and adopting Intermittent Fasting and Keto or Low Carb High Fat diets without regard to calories.

But for me, it does not fully work without considering the calories. There is no doubt I radically slowed my metabolism by eating too few calories for a few years. But recent attempts to fix it by eating 2200-2300 per day have just added weight back on that I am now trying to get back off.

I’m still trying to find the secret for me. It has to be some combination of all these theories. But while I do, I’m going to publish the latest thoughts.

I found this to be a pretty good primer on IF, but he sure is hard on the calorie counters!
