Coming to the end of day three of my low-carb diet experiment. Not a ton of changes so far, but a few items of note: Slept really poorly for the last two nights. Impossible to say for sure if that has anything to do with carb intake, but it does seem noteworthy. As of this […]
One of the realities of every diet and fitness regimen is that your body adapts to the activity you’re performing. In fact, that’s why exercise (and diets) work.

We’re back to reality now, and Crystal and I will be doing a weekend of workshops in Parksville on February 5th and 6th. You can find more details […]
