Nutrition and health has become central to much of my attention and research in the last few years. Ironically, nearly 20 years I used the same principles, that I have (re)subscribed to of late, to resolve and cure a case of stage IV metastatic melanoma. An awareness of general nutrition complacency, dissatisfaction with my general health and ongoing research connecting nutrition to brain function have all contributed to reigniting my strong interest in this area.
Living by principles instead of taking a diet
Research has shown time and time again that one of the best ways to gain weight is to go on a diet. You might lose some mass temporarily, but once you revert to older eating habits, sir simply just fall back into complacency, your weigh rebounds to the same or more than before the diet.
I've both taken, and seen in others, a much more successful approach when you take a principled, inquiry-based approach to health and nutrition.
