Week #27

February 04, 2018

  1. [Food] Foods to ABSOLUTELY avoid (4 min): Basically avoid sugar-based foods. Marty breaks down different sugary foods with numbers, and provides a survey at the end to help you determine the best approach for your goals.

  2. [Science] What is Time Restricted Eating (TRE) and Can it Help You Lose Weight? (4 min): Short answer, yes. Basically TRE is a form of intermittent fasting. Different TRE schedules work for different people - start slow and figure out what works for you. TRE with low-carb works wonders for your insulin/blood sugar/weight loss numbers.

  3. [Non-Exercise] Non-Exercise Physical Activity is going down. This is not good. (2 min): As we are slowly realizing ourselves, there is more to general wellness than diet and exercise. This study was particularly insightful - “A generally active daily life was, regardless of exercising regularly or not, associated with cardiovascular health and longevity in older adults.”

  4. [Recipe] Dippable Crispy Cheese Chips (30 min prep | 8 min cook): One ingredient only (spoiler, it’s cheese). Tastes great with guacamole. Perfect for the Superbowl.

  5. [Nutrition] FAQs with an MD (16 min): Questions like “Won’t meat, fat and cholesterol clog my arteries?” and “Don’t I need to eat carbohydrate to fuel my brain?” are answered in clear, simple terms with clear answers by Dr. Georgia Ede.
