Comment of the Week

“Re: Sunday with Sisson; I recently sent this elevator pitch to a friend:
– Cut out (or minimize) sugars, grains, and seed oils
– Eat real food that your great grandparents would have recognized
– Prioritize protein from animal sources. Ruminants are best, followed by fatty fish & eggs.
– Eat to satiety and avoid snacking
– Don’t avoid saturated fat
– Try to get ~8 hours sleep each night on a regular schedule
– Minimize stress
– Focus on resistance training over cardio”

-Outstanding, Notch.
