Rules are good!

Rules are good. They guide us for the better. They offer structure and discipline in a world of chaos. Here are some rules to live by according to Michael Pollan, author of the best seller “Food Rules.” 

Rule 63: “Cook”

Pollan says “the decline in home cooking closely parallels the rise in obesity”—not because we flock to fast food places, but because most restaurant chefs go crazy with sugar, salt and unhealthy oils. (See: Why is Sugar So Bad for You?)

Rule 60: “Treat treats as treats”

Food marketers want us to believe that we get pleasure from eating foods that are bad for us (the old “you deserve it” trick). Having one “cheat day” a week helps curb overindulgence.

Pollan has a more structured variation of the rule: “No snacks, no seconds, no sweets except on days that begin with the letter S.

Rule 13: “Eat only foods that will eventually rot”

Sometimes things become such a staple in our diet that we forget they aren’t actually food (you’re familiar with this example). When we stop eating real, rot-able food, it seems that we—just like the major food manufacturers—only care about the bottom line. But in our case, it’s the wrong bottom line… we go for the cheapest, fastest food we can find, with little regard to how it lowers our quality of life, or how much time and money we’ll pay later to fix the damage.

A few more rules of thumb for finding real food: “If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t” and “shop the peripheries of the supermarket.” Read More

On Not Losing Hope

Written By: CrossFit Lisbeth

Never lose hope of being better than you are. Never. This is harder than it sounds.

The world is full of broken dreamers.People who have tried and failed, for whatever reason: money, will, circumstance, faith. The cause of their loss is not germane to their story, although they may spend inordinate amounts of time trying to explain it. Affixing blame becomes a priority for some folks, after the loss. Listen and move on. Don’t linger. This is important. Your dream is not theirs — although both might look, sound, and smell very much alike. But your dream is yours — and you are you.

Broken dreams happen to everyone. There is not a soul among us who has received everything they ever wanted in this life. Not one. There are, instead, people who choose to take the lessons of the broken dream and move on. Use that pain to make the next dream a reality. They sit on those stories no longer than the cat on the hot stove. Lesson learned. Time to do something else.

If you would better yourself, then do the same. Learn to quickly identify the broken dreamers in your life and limit their contact with you. Enough  to learn, not enough to permanently scar.

You have bigger dreams. You have the heart to achieve them. You will be better than you are. Go make it happen.
