Re: Nathan Pritikin and a Healthy Body

I agree with you Steven, and a strict Pritikin diet follows that theory. And, in the tradition of CrossFit, the proof is in the numbers, and the Pritikin numbers are amazing ( for wellness ).

Laura,
I was on a paleo diet for months, then went on the zone diet, and when I went back to the paleo diet, even just for one day, I didn't feel healthy. The next day back in the zone, I felt...

Re: Cheaters - your opinions sought here...

Gotta watch those metabolisms. In my opinion, you need to work with your body and try things out. Try a cheat day here and there, if you feel good about it, go with it. But, if that starts to catch...

Re: Going public...

Brandon,

Seems to me you got the work outs and exercise down. As far as the foods. Cutting out all grains and refined sugars will be a huge help in the weight loss. I currently do the Zone Diet,...

Re: Are corn tortilla's healthy?

I stick to the block count for the oil. I find if my fat intake for the day goes over 40% I start to feel sluggish and a bit sick. If I cheat at all, it's usually on the protein side. If I'm around...
