Beat the Heat – Don’t Eat!

Posted by Rob on 5th June 2015 in Food and Drink, Health and Fitness |

Just a quick note today. My wife and I are trying out a thing called alternate-day fasting — something that science is suggesting may be tremendously good for people. Skirting past the plethora of potential health benefits for now, there are a few other reasons we’ve been finding we like it. It’s easier than you […]


Once more unto the breach

Posted by Rob on 11th February 2015 in Food and Drink, Weight Loss |

Dieting is a bloody pain. This isn’t news, of course, but after a while, it can really begin to piss you off. It’s not so much that you CAN’T do it, but rather, the aching reality of the fact that you CAN do it, and haven’t. Nothing is so liable to make me annoyed as […]


Ketogenics? Pah…

Posted by Rob on 14th December 2014 in Food and Drink, Weight Loss |

Okay, so that didn’t work out so well. Christmas is coming, and Ketogenic diets are all well and good, but they’re nutritionally deficient — the kind of thing you might do for a short while, but not the sort of thing you’d want to live with, especially if it makes your hands and feet go […]


Ketogenic Dieting

Posted by Rob on 30th November 2014 in Weight Loss |

So, this is the new thing. I tried this once before, in the form of the famous Atkins diet.  You know, the one that people say killed him, except it didn’t?  Righto, that’s the chap.  It’s one of the stricter and weirder diets out there, though there’s science suggesting lately that ketones are good for […]


Today My Role Is…

Posted by Rob on 14th November 2014 in Weight Loss |

The Villain. Oh, no! Here comes a healthy dinner! Save me, save me! This is unfortunate, but necesssary today.  My wife and I have had a very relaxed week of food, beginning with pancakes a week ago — primal pancakes, so acceptable — and then continuing through a whole spate of eating things that are […]


Festive Foods

Posted by Rob on 9th November 2014 in Weight Loss |

It’s one thing to plan for what you’ll do when the weather turns cold, Halloween sneaks in, and Thanksgiving is on the horizon — but it’s quite another to actually go on and do it. Although I’m quite good at keeping myself in check, the change of the seasons does trigger the desire for foods.  The cold […]


The Acceptable Pie

Posted by Rob on 16th October 2014 in Weight Loss |

As fall creeps in and the weather turns cold, the mirage of baking appears on the horizon.  The weather signals the arrival of fall foods, of apple pies, thick stews and baked brownies.  They’re warm foods — not just warm from being cooked, but warm in the way they make you feel.  They’re the kind of […]

Oh Sucralose, Oh Aspartame…

Posted by Rob on 16th October 2014 in Weight Loss |

It looks like the sweeteners are going out the door. There’s an argument made sometimes that sweeteners are worse for you than sugar.  I’m not sure that’s true — sugar is a pretty malevolent little beastie once it gets inside you, and it can cause all manner of havoc.  But sweeteners are definitely no little […]


My Foodie Crutch

Posted by Rob on 15th October 2014 in Weight Loss |

So, when I’m not feeling great, I eat.  This is a contributing factor to my impressive waistline, and certainly one of those things that I’m supposed to remedy, I think–it’s a bad habit.  But in practice, I think what happens more often is that instead, I just go and eat things I’m allowed to eat when I’m […]


The Creep of Winter

Posted by Rob on 6th October 2014 in Exercise, Weight Loss |

So, winter is on its way!  Jingle bells, jingle bells!  The cold isn’t quite here yet, but once it’s here, you’ll see me grinning an awful lot.  There’s something about that crisp bite of winter that I’ve always loved.  I cope with the heat about as well as a bowl of ice-cream, but the winter […]
