#58 Health Blog – Fasting Burns Fat

Good Morning!

In the last two health blog posts I’ve written about how and why we store fat. This post is going to cover the easiest way to get energy out of the fat cell.

To quickly recap

  • Insulin is ‘the fat storage hormone’.
  • Eating carbs will cause insulin to go up in body.
  • Any excess energy not used from what is taken into the body will be stored in the fat cell.

#57 THEY WON!!!

Good Morning!

I can’t believe I woke up so late this morning.

Well, I understand why I did though, it’s because The Toronto Raptors won the NBA Championship last night and I watched the entire game!

It’s kind of a big deal.

It’s the first time that a Canadian NBA team has won the Championship.

I’m not a huge fan of basketball or any other sport for that matter, but out of all sports I do enjoy watching basketball the most.… Read More “#57 THEY WON!!!”

#56 Health Blog – Let’s Get Serious About How Body Fat Works

Good Morning!

I want to start out by saying that we still don’t know what causes obesity as a matter of general consensus. This kind of seems crazy to me because the current evidence is so compelling, but information like this takes a long time to spread throughout the medical community and then even more time for people’s individual opinions to change.… Read More “#56 Health Blog – Let’s Get Serious About How Body Fat Works”

#55 Reading Faster

Good Morning!

On Monday I wrote about increasing the reading speed and linked to the free speed reading software, that trains you how to read in phrases at readspeeder.com.

The idea to reading in phrases is instead of reading single words you’re reading groups of words, much like you read groups of letters and not the individual letters themselves.

Reading in phrases allows you to read more visually, actually visualizing what your eyes are showing you.… Read More “#55 Reading Faster”

#53 The Meta-Habit To Improve Your Life

Good Morning!

A common theme that keeps getting talked and written about in the personal development content I’ve been consuming for the past couple weeks is to read more books.

A lot more. A book per week minimum and the more the better.

This  idea was solidified after reading about this in a couple blogs and listening to other podcasts with Gary Vaynerchuk, T.K.… Read More “#53 The Meta-Habit To Improve Your Life”

#52 Thank You

Good Morning!

Ya know, I never thought I’d be sitting here, typing away on my computer making content for a living. Creating content is probably the most challenging and creative career I’ve ever decided to undertake.

It’s testing out every task and time management ability that I have and every single day I’m learning something new. This is exactly what I set out to do.… Read More “#52 Thank You”
