There Is No Secret To Weight Loss

Posted on 3/23/2015 by

I read a book recently titled “Zero to One” by Peter Thiel and Blake Masters. You might know Peter Thiel as one of the founders of Paypal. He has an interesting quote “we know more about the physics of faraway stars than we know about human nutrition”.

Chronic Diseases and How We Got Here

Posted on 2/11/2015 by

I came across an article, written in 2000 by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD for the Weston A. Price Foundation that encapsulated so well the history of how we got to this chronic disease state, that I thought it deserved a blog and a link.

Why the Pure Form Omega Formulation Works

Posted on 11/23/2014 by

Fish Oil starves muscles of essential fuel making you less effective in the gym—the OPPOSITE of what is required for success! Know that this is counter to what many of you are currently using and believe. There is very good evidence behind this statement. British Medical Journal of Nutrition (2003), 90, 777-786 published, “Fish-oil supplementation reduces stimulation of plasma glucose fluxes during exercise in untrained males”.

Posted on 9/25/2014 by

Hockey and football season is upon us, and as usual, concussions occur more often. There is tremendous pressure on kids and young adults to return from concussions too early. The old standard of “wake them up every 2 hours” is not good advice. In fact, the full impact of a concussion may not be apparent for 3 months! Was this always the case?

Can You Trust What Your Doctor Says About Nutrition?

Posted on 8/25/2014 by

It’s very interesting to see “ask your doctor” when looking at supplements.

Posted on 7/27/2014 by

Well it’s interesting that there are only 2 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) yet other fatty acids are being labeled as essential. Essential means that it can only be derived from your diet and the body cannot synthesize them. Our body can make all other fatty acids that we need from these 2 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s).

Cellular Oxygen Transport - The Real Story

Posted on 7/11/2014 by

Well, after a fairly exhaustive search, it is remarkable how little is published on this subject. All the papers I have read assume that the rate of oxygen crossing a cell membrane is not a rate-limiting step. There are very few papers that even try to measure that rate.

The Truth About Rancid Oils

Posted on 6/26/2014 by

First let’s define rancid. Dictionary definition is "adjective (of foods containing fat or oil) smelling or tasting unpleasant as a result of being old and stale". An example would be fish that is left out too long smelling “fishy”; it is actually going rancid.
