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 would expect, for one. It’s really cheap. And it requires next to no careful planning (beyond trying not to eat total junk all the time, which is just a good rule of thumb regardless).
And recently, we’ve noticed, it keeps you cool.
And because we run cooler now, as the hot weather sweeps in, we’re finding it much easier to live with than we did last year. It’s a rather pleasant side effect — though it remains to be seen how fond we’ll be of it after the summer has ended…
P.S. – eat those eggs!
While I’m throwing out a health type post, here’s a link for the curious. Cholesterol may actually be good for you, saturated fat can’t be linked to risk of death, and the data that made people think otherwise was deliberately fiddled.
