Any other key points to add? How did I do with writing up a simple myth buster type of article about paleo and primal living? It's mostly based on the conversations I find myself in around real, non internet life.

+Terry Newton​ I'd love your two cents ☺💪✌

If you're thinking about getting a fitness tracker, Google Fit is a free and easy way to have a go
About 40% of those surveyed said they use a fitness tracker (16% with a specific device like a Fitbit or running watch and 25% using just their phone). Another 25% confessed that they're thinking about it. While activity tracking could just be a flash-in-the-pan trend,  there's little doubt that logging steps, distance energy burned and everything else technology allows has definitely gone mainstream. If you're thinking about tracking your physical activity, Google Fit is an excellent app that is simple, available everywhere regardless of what device you have and entirely free. Here are the main reasons you should give it a try.

If there's one piece of technology that has really exploded in popularity in recent years, it has to be fitness trackers. As recent as 3 years ago wearing devices around your wrist, clipped to your clothing was a niche market...

Coffee: yay or nay?

Flavoured, sweetened drinks don't happen often, but I love a good latte with fresh full cream jersey cow milk.
What constitutes as healthy, especially in terms of food can be a complex question to ask. It seems that for many foods, there are just as many people professing health benefits as there are proclaiming they'll lead to cancer...

As it is nearly December I just wanted to let everyone know about my new book A Paleo Christmas which provides spectacular five course Paleo festive menu which everyone will enjoy. With all the favourites included (plus all the trimmings) even non Paleo eaters will love it. There is a selection of starters, mains, side dishes, desserts (the chocolate orange tart is amazing!) as well as Paleo friendly cheese course and petit fours.

Anyone else get a bit upset when wrong "balanced diet" float around the internet?. It's a nice sounding phrase which doesn't mean much - just like "everything in moderation". 
“Everything in moderation” is a term that gets thrown around too frequently. It’s not exactly bad advice. The idea that you shouldn’t gorge on any one particular food, nor will a teaspoon of any other food bring about instant...

Given the attention and false reporting of +World Health Organization study on #redmeat  and #cancer , I felt compelled to refresh my memory on the health benefits of quality meat. This will be nothing new to the fellow #paleo  and #primal  people out there, but it may be interesting nonetheless. 
A little while ago, the World Health Organization made occupied many major news feeds when it published a study linking processed meat and red meat to cancer risk. While the research behind this, and the findings published ar...

It seems to me that the WHO news reveals cooking methods as being the biggest part of the problem -- roasting, grilling, and deep frying -- as well as the amount of consumption. A Time magazine article I read said nothing about baking or sautéing. I think it's worth paying attention to, but it doesn't mean you have to stop eating meat. We evolved to be omnivores. Personally, I don't eat beef, chicken, or pork. I do eat lamb, turkey, and fish. (I follow the blood type diet and what I eat is also now influenced by Paleo.) So, I'll pay attention to consumption, quality, and cooking methods.

How do you deal with a day of bad eating? Thanksgiving is approaching for Americans right? There's bound to be some cheat days there. My favourite thing about the Primal lifestyle is the calmness that comes these cheat meals. There's no need to punish yourself with a torturous interval session the next morning, nor is there any despair and self-loathing. Eat what you want, but be mindful of how you feel. Comes to terms with what your body tells, and enjoy the indulgence. You know it's temporary and wont throw you off in the long term. 
This whole week has involved researching “benefits of red meat” pieces to build on for the next article. The goal is to prove a simple, up-to-date reminder for those that may be confused by the the cancer study published by ...

How are we going with New Year's Resolutions?. I understand why many think they're silly, and in terms of arbitrary short-term goals, they are. But a resolution is a self-improvement which has no calendar affiliation. It's not so much about "losing 10 lbs this year" but becoming healthier. The short-term measurable goals may help guide the grander long-term change, but it may help to ease the pressure, and increase the significance to frame resolutions as permanent improvements rather than goals you'll reach this year, which implies their only temporary and therefore less important. 

#NYResolution #paleo #primal #health #fitness
It's easy to finish the year incredibly determined to start the next one off on the right foot. January is the busiest month for gym memberships. It shouldn’t be surprising that when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions, those ...

With December literally on the doorstop the festive season is well and truly upon us and that can only mean one thing; Christmas parties! Alcohol has always been a bit of grey area in the Paleo lifestyle so we have taken a look at how you can enjoy a drink or two (or three!) within the parameters of your Paleo principles during the party season.

Sugar can be a controversial topic when following a Paleo diet and it can be confusing knowing what you are able to use. Whilst it is true that sugar is ultimately sugar regardless of its source we take a look at the role of natural sugars in a Paleo lifestyle. What is your position on sugar?

Is the +World Health Organization advising that people stop eating red meat? No, nor should it. There's a lot of excellent information to be had from what they published last week - verifying the evidence which links processed meat and red meat to cancer. That being said, this information is nothing new or controversial. Here's what to keep in mind when thinking about your red meat consumption. 
The World Health Organization made major news last week by publishing a summary of findings from a study linking cancerous carcinogens to processed meat and read meat consumption. While this significant, and generally reliabl...

Gigantic junk food chains vs local fresh food markets

In case you haven't heard, companies like Coca-Cola, Dunkin Donuts and McDonald's have been declining for the better part of a decade. Massive global grocers as well are seeing profits drop unless they take local fresh food seriously for its customers. At the same time, local markets and organic based shops are becoming more popular and economically viable.
