This notion isn’t shocking – anytime you move away from a real food diet towards one like the American diet of highly processed foods, preservatives, and added sugars you are going to see weight gain. What’s interesting is noting the acculturation of the Mexican youth leading to the weight gain.
another food blog – I feel oddly connected to her – she’s from Jersey, I’m from NY (Long Island) – she relocated to the midwest (Iowa), I relocated to the midwest (Oklahoma) – she’s following a “paleo” style diet and doing well, I’m doing the same…I think things end there – her blog is beautiful and lots of nice pics of her food making me hungry…
Okay so the name could use a little work – but this is a new venture by fellow blogger and 4HB success story Justin (from MyFourHourBodyDiary.com). Nice quick vid with Justin and his personal trainer partner – they jump in to the question of whether you can have shortcuts. At just about 6 minutes it’s the right amount of time – not too long, but long enough to put out some good content.
Taylor Mali is a spoken word poet/artist/teacher – this is a great video pointing out the importance of nutrition and diet for our kids. As a school counselor by profession – I think this is more important than any subject we can teach and test on. Not everyone will go into a field requiring higher levels of math, or the ability to write 30 page essays, or name the signers of the Declaration of Independence – but all of our kids will have a job called “Life” and learning about health and nutrition should be of utmost importance in our public schools, unfortunately it’s a secondary (and often-times tertiary thought, if it’s thought about at all). For example, here where I work we do not have a health program. It’s a damn shame I say – but, anyway, Taylor Mali’s videos are awesome – check this one out!
