so and so
This came to my mind while listening to the first hour of the audiobook:
- listen to your body so you can develop a sense of what seems to help or hinder your bodies performance.
- drink slowly/small amounts at a time when you are thirsty (you might actually need less than you think)
- eat slowly/small amounts at a time when you are hungry (you might actually need less than you think)
- don’t overdue it with any exercise (it is not normal/good to collapse after any exercise …)
- avoid extremes / avoid alcohol / avoid drinking from mountain streams / bottled water is nonsense -> get a good filter or filtered water / some coffee might be better for you than you think
- have your body supplied with just the right amount of water/minerals/energy well prior of beginning exercising
- learn to think ahead / being prepared is a good thing
- IMHO some of the information regarding food seems to be outdated -> read current books like Grain Brain - Wheat Belly - GAPS - Eating on the wild side -
to learn about and how to identify food that should be good for you
- IMHO make fat “your friend” not “your enemy” (again reading good current books about fat is required)
