Putting together a cadré of wellness experts

When I was in my young twenties a friend introduced me to a trio of Chinese medicine practitioners: Dr Kuang, the acupuncturist; his wife, Dr. Yao, the herbalist; and their assistant, Nurse Ling. For the next 15 or so years the three of them fixed every ailment I had, from joint pain to flu to the weird virus that left half my face numb and my balance off-kilter. Life was easy. But then one day they upped and left. Their neighbor informed me they’d returned home following their son’s hijacking. He was fine, but they weren’t taking any chances. I can’t blame them. As for me, my dentist was now the sole medical professional in my phone book. While excellent at keeping my smile healthy, he was in no position to take over from Dr. Kuang et al. That’s when I realized the importance of having a cadré of wellness experts to call on. What constitutes a wellness expert? First, let’s start by unpacking what constitutes a wellness expert. You...

The case for fat

Even the healthiest among us want to lose weight, or at least avoid fat. The best way seems to just be controlling your appetite, right? The problem is, very few people know how to go about that. But how much thought could it possibly require? What if the answer wasn’t eating less but eating better? What if the way to be less hungry and even lose weight is to eat more… fat?

The things you really want to be eating are usually available in “diet” form. Just eat those and avoid things like cottage cheese and avocados. In fact, dieting is pretty easy when you look at it like that. However, anyone who is struggling with their appetite but thinking a low-fat, diet-food alternative will help them get control of their weight again (or even lose weight) is in for a rude-awakening. In fact, those same items...
How to get a fit and sexy body

How to get a fit and sexy body

The majority of people would like to improve their body shape in one way or another. Achieving a fit and sexier looking body is often the original reason for many people to join a gym in the first place. Of course, a “fit” or “sexy” body is going to be somewhat rooted in individual opinion and can be very subjective. For this article, I am going to focus on a generalized definition of those words. In most cases, getting a fitter and sexier body means an individual is aiming to do two things: lose some fat and build a bit of muscle. As I already mentioned, this is quite a subjective topic so the amounts of body fat and muscle mass requires to make somebody look fitter and sexier is going to vary. However, the bottom line is that most people who want a better-looking body will be aiming for fat loss and muscle building. With that in mind, you now have your goals for achieving your sexier physique. The problem arises when you begin to...
