Bob Greene – Holy Grail of Health

Legendary heroes of nutrition such as Weston A. Price, Robert McCarrison, Melvin Page, Denis Burkitt, T.L. Cleave, and many others were all in search of the holy grail of human health. The key word in that sentence being ‘search. They ‘searched? far and wide, but unfortunately they came up short. Thankfully, in the year 2006 the real answer to the question, ?how to live a good,...

The Hamburglar’s Metabolism

For those of you who don’t have multiple hours set aside to read through the vast collection of over 300 interesting comments that followed the last 180 Bloggie post, I thought I’d bring you up to speed.For quite some time I have been pondering the multiple expressions of a suboptimal metabolism to the point where I have begun believing that it is the most common root source of the...

T.L. “Peter” Cleave

That’s right, everybody could use a little bit of TLC ? Thomas Latimore Cleave (also known as T.L. Cleave or even ?Peter? Cleave). T.L. Cleave is basically some British guy who had some good ideas. The first is Cleave’s Law of Adaptation. Cleave felt that the human body had adapted to certain things, and that when technology outpaced our ability to adapt, disease developed. Although...

Gerry Rigging

Sorry folks. I’ve been a busy little boy trying to get my next eBook together before the end of the month. Here’s a short little post – a reply of mine to www.diseaseproof.com. Although I know better, I’ve tried hard to open up intelligent conversations and remind the site moderator, “Gerry,” that there are gaping holes in some his logic and conclusions. Gerry...

Plant Killaz Caught on Tape!

Ah yes, the time has come for a collection of videos that demonstrate what 180DegreeHealth clearly isn’t?Or, to put it another way, and to abide by the first rule of Fat Club, get ready to ‘stick your fingers in your ears. Without further ado, I give thee a video collection of some of the kookiest nutrition gurus I can find?and you thought I was out there??!!Gabriel...

Andy Bellatti

Howdy folks, Here is a conversation between and my good bud Andy Bellatti, blog author at “Small Bites.” Andy is pretty convinced that the cure to the obesity epidemic is to eat smaller portions, and get more physical activity. In other words, he’s in the majority and he feels that fringe renegades such as the infamous Matt Stone of 180DegreeHealth are a big part of the problem...

Broda Barnes

Recently I took a trip down to Dagobah to meet master Broda. Many think Broda to be deceased, but in actuality, in his mighty Jedi skills, he flew away to a distant, swampy planet. I’ve been there. We hung out. He showed me how to boost my thyroid while standing on my head. And yes I brought my droids with me, T2D2 and T3PO. Okay that’ll do with the Star Wars metaphors, but come on,...

CBS News Fraud – Jan Kwasniewski

The other day a fried of mine passed along a CBS evening news report on Polish doctor Jan Kwasniewski. Please click here to watch. Many people have mentioned Kwasniewski’s work to me, as we apparently have come to near identical conclusions on what is more or less the optimal diet for healing the majority of illnesses facing humanity. Kwasniewski, like myself, is a strong proponent for a...

FUMPclusions

Results from a 30-day, all animal product, near zero carb escapade…This 30 day experiment was pretty dang easy. Very clear cut benefits include, first and foremost, dramatic improvement in digestion. Having to basically digest one food group and one food group only at each meal is effortless. I feel that much of the benefit of the all-meat diet can be attributed to this ? same with what...

FUMP Day 30!

I’m a free man! Holy lord I cannot wait to crack open a huge box of krispy mf?n kremes and go to town! Finally this heinous experience is over! Nah man, I don’t think so (read in LL Cool J voice). I’m saving my conclusions for tomorrow, but I will say that this was probably the easiest restricted diet I’ve ever had to follow with the exception of Schwarzbein’s...

FUMP Day 28

Holy Schnikies I’ve been busy!On day 25 I decided to change things up a little bit. Since the beginning, one of my greatest concerns was not eating enough food. I was picking up the vibe from long-time zero carbers; however, that such a thing wasn’t necessary. So I thought I’d give it a few days not intentionally trying to eat as much as possible. I also cut salt out completely...

FUMP Day 25

Today I had meat and lots of it. I roasted up a 7-pound slab of choice ribeye, totally untrimmed, bone-in, with a layer of fat on it thicker than my skull (if one could imagine such thickness).All-meat action is going well still, although I’ve got two new things to report.The first is that I was getting a little daydreamy about carbs today. I checked out a collection of Youtube videos...

FUMP Day 24

Business as usual over the past several days?The diet is going just fine and seems to be continuing to get better and better. I’ve even been able to exercise at fairly normal levels, going for several short jogs over the past three days, as well as do some brief resistance exercise. I must confess however, that I did consume something not of animal origin. Yes, I know, I’m an evil...

FUMP Day 21

Yesterday and this morning I got to experience life on the road as a carnivore. Instead of having my usual homemade goodness, I had to seek it out elsewhere. It wasn’t too bad, but can pose a few challenges.One challenge is financial. Last night I went out to dinner with a friend, and the only thing that could have really adequately satisfied the wolfman was the 12-ounce ribeye. At $38...

FUMP Day 19

This journey is almost two-thirds done. Although, I can tell you right now, it hasn’t been much of a journey. It’s been pretty uneventful really, and I’m having trouble remembering exactly what it was I used to eat 19 days ago besides meat. Meat is pretty much synonymous with food at this point. What can I say? Induction symptoms are more or less over. Sleep has gotten better,...

FUMP Day 18

Dude, this has nothing to do with FUMPing, but I was working on this today and too proud not to share it. Look for the finished version (this is just the first half), to appear in my January newsletter at http://180degreehealth.com/YOU! The Boner’s ManualRecently I hopped over to a website about Dr. Oz. Dr. Oz, for those of you who are somehow even more removed from society than I am, is...

FUMP Day 17

Nothing new, nothing outrageous, nothing smashing today. Virtually all induction symptoms, if you can even call them that in my case as they were all pretty minimal, are all gone. All vital signs in check. The biggest surprise I think is the looseness of the bowels. I thought for sure after a week or two it was going to be like pushing silly putty through a syringe. Nope, in fact regularity...

FUMP Day 16

Ho man I slacked yesterday. Oh wait, that’s not the way to start off a post. Okay, yesterday was the 15th day of my 30 day adventure, so I took, like, an All-Star break. There, that’s better.The topic of the past few days seems to be sleep. Everyone and their uncle who has ever low-carbed it has been contacting me sharing their stories of sleeplessness, which even one of the...

FUMP Day 14

Well, so much for feeling run down. When I went to sleep my heart was pounding and my body was achy. When I woke up (with the roosters as usual), I felt next to amazing.Sorry about all the blog turmoil lately. First I changed the domain name, throwing everybody for a loop, and then I totally transformed the look. Along those lines, I did have someone that was very displeased with the black...
