Push your fitness limits, give up sugar, cut back alcohol

Michael Pollan is famous for his slogan: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” This is a great message because it has both health and environment benefits.

I do think it is vague and actually hard to do though. And the word “food” is very much up for interpretation. He means whole foods, minimally processed, and if processed, done so with very few ingredients. You should recognize and be able to pronounce all the ingredients as well. Not too much is well, who knows. Too much for one, is not much for another.

I am trying to develop my own slogan for healthy eating and living, but have been struggling. I then looked down at an older vogue issue (that has Rihanna on the cover) and saw three things: “Push your fitness limits, give up sugar, cut back alcohol.” I think this pretty much sums it up. The cut back alcohol is up for interpretation but I think I could work with these and provide something more specific.

Back soon with my health slogan…

      Why wouldn’t I? During the paleolithic age, they didn’t have much sugar, very little alcohol and the ran around hunting and foraging. Perfect! Minus the 2 pounds of red meat every day…
