Doesn’t it make your life kind of boring? To work on this longevity health goal, not having fun every day like everyone else?
I think a lot of people never felt what it’s like, when you wake up every morning full of energy and enthusiasm, ready to go, ready to change the world, with a huge smile on your face for no specific reason and with absolute confidence you can do anything, you can push through any challenge, whatever curve ball life throws at you.
You see, longevity in 50 years also feels damn good TODAY!
If we eat what’s the most convenient, cheapest, flavorful and delicious, with the best marketing — we are all f*cked!
Overfat, oversized, overwhelmed, getting sicker and less mentally and physically able day by day, eating the most mouth-watering and cheapest diet.
That’s the future!
We are all f*cked!
Over the weekend I was doing some studying at Precision Nutrition and stumbled upon this article about the rate of millennial young women putting on weight. And what’s the rate? The fastest. Compared to all the prior generations. …
A friend of mine, game designer, developer, Charlie got into cooking recently.
“I’m so hungry all the time!”, he used to say.
After a few days of cooking according to the Angela’s formula, as people call it — fiber (lots of veg), protein, healthy and essential fats, Charlie was surprised how not hungry he felt! And intermittent fasting he recently got into — it got much easier without any bulletproof coffees and keto and lowcarb diets.
I just finished “Why calories don’t count” book by Dr Giles Yeo. The book is about metabolism, about digestion of food, getting energy out…
“So, is it another part of Angela’s weight loss theory?”
A client of mine asked me, while chatting about servings of nuts allowed, and why it’s important to keep an eye on them.
“Should I be low fat now?”, the client continued.
“No. But fat calories are denser than other calories, and because of that we need to pay a bit more attention to these yummy fat-rich foods.”
All our favorite diets from Paleo to Vegan, from Keto to Zone to low fat — they promise us a few simple rules in exchange for an easier way to maintain…
Right at the beginning I want to share this one fact of my personal diet history to give you a better idea of where I’m coming from.
I tried living on juice only once — I almost did it to 60 days, on juice and coconut water and nothing else. I had a juice-detox company in Thailand some years ago. I was a raw vegan for 4.5 years. I did almost 100% keto for almost 6 years. I’m an omnivore now. …
The mind-blowing moment numero uno happened when I fully understood this phrase — “we burn the same amount of calories no matter what” aka we “have a constraint on our daily energy expenditure”. Like whether you are a pro-athlete, training 5–6 hours a day, or a pregnant to-be mom, or an average work-from-home professional, or a Hadza modern hunter-gatherer — DOESN’T MATTER! We burn the same amount of calories because we are human species, because we aren’t gorillas or antelopes, or sea turtles.
It sank in my mind and I realized how my thinking and the thinking of most fitness…
Hi there, fellow fast-curious soul!
I’m Angela, a nutrition and health coach who’s been into fasting for more than 10 years now. It’s been a journey for sure. Not only for me personally but also for the whole field of fasting — from being considered a “fad of the past” to the present day cutting-edge field of research, that can help to cure or make better almost all of the diseases of modern food environment — obesity, metabolic disease, heart disease, chances of getting cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, allergies and sensitivities, auto-immune conditions, skin and hormonal problems, sleep disorders.
Looking back at what I learned, at my own health practice of 2020 and the results I got, looking back at my work with many clients, trying to build their best selves in different parts of the world and business, I want to share with you today, dear reader, a few simple things — nutrition, lifestyle, training — that give back the most to increase energy, help you to lose and maintain weight easier, get and stay fit mentally and physically, get sick less.
Keto, low carb, paleo, whatever-free, vegan and plant-based — these are elimination diets and they aren’t…
We got it all wrong!
I got it all wrong!
I’m 33 and for the most part, so far, I’ve been trying to develop aspects of self and change myself, as it turns out, in all the wrong ways, against human psychology and the way we naturally form habits. No wonder every change took me forever, unless accidentally I would change something “the scientific way”, not being aware of it.
These days I’ve been trying to study for a couple of hours a day consistently to advance my coaching career and to get better at communicating my ideas to other…
I’ve just finished this book, “French kids eat everything”.
Some people ask me, what does it have to do with your nutrition/health coaching career? How does it help you to coach adults better? To help adults to change their eating and lifestyle habits?
The more I work with people and reflect on my own journey of health transformation the more I’m not surprised to discover how we are still just grown-up kids, especially when it comes to food.
