Central Nervous System (CNS) Fatigue

One of the primary objectives of 180DegreeHealth is to provide information, not on the dangers of sitting around on the couch pounding big bags of Doritos and 3 Liter bottles of Mountain Dew, but on the dangers of the modern exercise and dieting fads that have arisen in response to the unhealthy modern diet and lifestyle. A few weeks ago I wrote a post that included some thoughts about the...

Terrible Tragedy of the Healthy Eater

A while back I posted links to some of the best articles I had recently read. Readers seemed to really enjoy being directed to these great reads. Here’s another installment… The first is an absolute must-read. I love information, but I have a weakness for really clever and creative writing.

Nutrition Comparison

I hosted a fun game on the 180DegreeHealth Facebook page last night. Sort of a “Guess this food” type of game based on the mineral content. Today, we square two foods off against one another.

I never for a second believed my ovaries to be a hindrance to anything I should want to do, besides maybe pee on a wall....

Small Changes Big Results

When I first started health-geeking I lost touch with reality and practicality. I was just a single 20-something dude with a seasonal job, no debts, and very low expenses. I could afford to up and leave wherever I was living and just milk cows in exchange for raw milk, or volunteer at an organic farm to load up on local produce – both of which I did. I also had plenty of time and space...
