By Amber Rogers (Go Kaleo) I started strength training 4 years ago because my doctor told me that it can help improve function for people with osteoarthritis of the knee. At 36, I’d recently dislocated my kneecap, which exacerbated the arthritis I’d already developed from carrying around 80 extra pounds for 25 years. I was dealing with chronic pain, stiffness and reduced mobility and couldn’t even climb a flight of stairs like a normal healthy adult. I was desperate, so even though I’d hated exercise all my life I decided to give it a shot. My results far exceeded my expectations. Over the next few years my knee mobility improved and my pain started to subside, my strength and functionality returned, and I started seeing health improvements in areas I’d never… Read more »
“Your blood is like a soup that needs to be seasoned just right. [Eat for Heat] helps to teach you what to watch for so you don’t screw up your “soup” by drinking too many fluids (which waters it down) or not seasoning it enough (with things like carbohydrates and salt).” ~Dr. Garrett Smith; Review of Eat for Heat: The Metabolic Approach to Food and Drink We often hear that our bodies are “mostly water.” The rough approximation is that an average person with a relatively average amount of body fat will be composed of about 60% water. Over the course of the lifespan, the percentage of body water gradually decreases. This is often used as justification of drinking lots and lots of pure water as if doing so will… Read more »
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Greetings 180D party people- Rob here, writing to give you a heads up about a couple of guest appearances Matt has going on. One of them is a radio interview with Joni Cox of Homegrown Health Radio, airing today from 3-4pm EST. Tune in to Natural News Radio to listen live or here anytime afterward for the downloadable archived show. Another is an article for Donovan Baldwin over at Fitness Over Forty. Piggybacking on the recent topic of metabolic decline as we age, Matt outlines why what we eat does not correspond so tightly to how healthy we are, or what our specific health biomarkers will be. It’s an always useful message for those would would oversimplify the complex relationship between what we eat… Read more »
I’ve been thinking a lot about aging lately. My grandfather, age 87 and my last living grandparent, ain’t doin’ so hot. And yes, he’s old. He’s falling to pieces. He’s going to eventually die. I’m not fighting that, and tend to look at whether it happens now or several months or even years from now as pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Sure, he’ll miss a few golf tournaments and football games on tv, but from this point forward it doesn’t really matter when the big day arrives. The world will go on whether he is alive to watch The O’Reilly Factor or not (Yeah I know that’s kinda mean, but he’s at the bedridden diaper stage – the stage where most people promise themselves and their loved… Read more »
My girlfriend’s daughter just turned 7. We were eating some food at a restaurant the other day and I watched her eat 2 cheeseburgers, half an order of French fries, a small milkshake, and a few good sips of a soft drink. I looked up all the nutrition data for her meal, and it totaled, by modest estimates, 1,200 calories. She weighs a whopping 49 pounds. That day she consumed over 2,500 calories. No I don’t meticulously count all her calories. But I did that day because her appetite was extraordinarily large, and well, you know, I’m a nerd. Metabolism has been the epicenter of my research for the last several years, and that’s just too impressive not to calculate and ponder. To put it into perspective, that single meal… Read more »
