The food we eat is important to our health and ability to feel awesome! And, the things our food has eaten or been forced to ‘take on’ is just as important.
This post (and video when you read further) is about Fox ‘News’ journalists being fired for discovering Monsanto putting Bovine growth hormone in cows, which of course is then passed on in some for to the humans consuming that cow’s milk or meat. Why care? Bovine growth hormone is linked to causing cancer, and Cancer is bitch.
Some general advice on selecting the food you put inside your body, which then becomes part of your body (and mind…)
Go for Grass-Fed beef when possible. Pasture raised beef means it might/probably has been fed grain though will have lived a better life than the meat labeled as just ‘Beef’. If it doesn’t brag about being organic, grass-fed or wild then it has probably received hormonal treatment.
Likewise, (especially in the USA) fish, veg and fruit that are not labelled as organic or non-GM are probably Genetically Modified or farm raised (terrible conditions for fish).
Farmers markets are a pretty safe bet, though it is worth checking how the farmers market is regulated and by asking the sellers about their products – this might sound a little over the top though the reality is, 3 years into my world travels, focused reading and interviews that more and more we need to check and check again about the origin of the food we are eating and the food that our food has eaten.
Anyway, here’s the video on Monsanto and Fox ‘News’:
Training in the gym, lifting weights, hill sprints and squats (etc) are all awesome for developing your body in different ways though you know the key thing to achieving the physique and peace of mind you want? It is to LOVE what you’re doing. That way it will be sustainable. There are a million ways to develop your body and train your mind. Find the ways you love and enjoy them…
Those of you out there loving what you’re doing – that’s awesome! If you’re not sure if you like the gym or go because you think you have to – maybe try something different?
Its all about Seaweed and it’s awesome properties!
Seaweed is something that makes so much sense for so many reasons. High in Calcium, high in protein (per gram), all of the good minerals you’d find in sea salt (without the sodium). It’s also high in Iodine which is critical for the function of your thyroid gland…
(This is Jeff DePeron’s website we are in the middle of writing a book together. It’s more about inspiration, self-deprecating humor, effective tips and lifestyle enhancements rather than a ‘eat this for 5 days and you will be 15 times as fast’. We do love those kind of books too…)
This is absolutely not about training & fat burning and at the same time it is EXACTLY about training & fat burning, and feeling amazing! (which by the way helps fat burning and creating a healthy life)
