Welcome

Is this just an other same old health blog? Hell No!!!

In this blog:

I’ll talk about nutrition using the approach I’ve been using in the last 2 years which I think is the healthiest even though still controversial (using a low carb higher fat approach or even ketogenic, pale principles and intermittent fasting), learning how to get lots of healthy fats back in the diet and which ones actually are healthy and most importantly getting rid of processed foods that contain a lot of garbage, too many carbs and unhealthy oils.

Regarding sports, I’ll talk mostly about how to start an activity if you don’t do anything yet, like running that doesn’t need much equipment or cycling that is low impact, weightlifting to get some muscle mass back on, boost the metabolism and gain some strength. You can do that at home with minimal equipment or in a gym. Once you get it going, we are going to push it to the next level, but don’t worry, always one step at a time.

Linked to sports, there is mobility work with foam rollers, lacrosse balls, and other weird torture objects to prevent and heal injuries. These are things you can do on your own to keep injuries away. I also discovered how yoga can help athletes (and everyone else for that matter) to stay flexible and agile, which is important, especially when we grow older… Yes, we all do…

Sleep is a bit left to the side in our modern fast paced life, but it plays a huge role in health, performance, recovery, memory, etc… We will talk about how much is needed, how to optimize it, quantify it and the importance of  the power down hour (what to do and what to avoid doing in the last hour before going to bed).

About meditation: I’ve never been into it but tried it after listening to (too) many (amazing) Tim Ferriss podcasts. According to him, about 80% of the successful people he interviewed had some kind of a meditation practice which plays a role in their life and their success. There are different ways to meditate, like mindfulness, transcendental and many others or simply breathing exercises (box breathing, Wim Hof breathing, etc…). We will dive a bit into that and discover the health benefits of these kind of practices.

I guess there is going to be many other things to talk about in the future, but we will start with that and see how it goes.

Thanks a lot for reading me and don’t hesitate telling your friends about it if you want to help them as well on their way to a better health.
