While You Wait… I’m still working on my “Why I Chose Low Carb” post. In the meantime, here’s a long list of things to keep you busy.
- Healthy Things to Do While Watching TV ★★★★☆ — Very good.
I hate TV. Loathe it. It sucks away my time and I never get those moments back.
A few years ago, when we moved into a new house, I took the plunge and ditched our beloved satellite dish and DVR. For a year or so, I still occasionally watched a few series on the Internet and I searched for ways to watch hockey games. Then I stopped even that.
Now, when I get home, I spend four hours a night on Facebook instead. (Just kidding. ;-))
Actually, I talk with my family, do some chores and honey-dos, and help with learning. What a concept.
If you can ditch the oh-so-appropriately-named idiot box, I encourage you to do so. If that’s just too much to ask (believe me, I understand that feeling), this article has a few tips which can at least make it less of a health-sucking monster than it otherwise would be.
(Unfortunately, what it does to your mental condition will stay the same.)
Very good. Mostly stuff we already know but it’s good to have it all in one place. I’d add isometrics.
Uses food-reward as its basis. Conclusion? It depends.
Pretty good. Some tips about HOW to cheat if you are going to, and how NOT to if you want to stay good.
A good review of the facts about stevia.
Two good points here: be honest; do it small but (as) consistently (as possible). Great quote: “Life is happening now, not ten pounds from now.”
Decent advice (though it does fall for a few clichés such as “don’t eat before bedtime”).
So-so. Still stuck on BMI but at least it adds waist-to-hip ratio in to help, ahem, round out the advice. BMI doesn’t account for frame or muscle mass. WtHR requires measuring body parts which I have always found to be devilishly tricky to do consistently. IME, there is NO single measurement which will encapsulate your health. Either use a combination of things to help estimate your status, or find some other way to gauge your progress and satisfaction. See also: Waist-to-Hip Ratio Estimates Health Risk
All mental tips. Why not adjust your body chemistry through low carb and not FEEL those cravings anymore?
