I have started to be more concious about health and life style. I have reached the conclusion that my life in front of the computer is not always good for my health. While on one months holiday on Gran Canary I discoverd how bad my physical health really was. Ten years ago I run the marathon. When I started swimming in the swimming pool it was hard to cross the pool ten times. Since I do not smoke, I have always been easily trained. When I left Gran Canaria, I had no problem corssing the swimming pool 100 times. I think I lost 3 - 5 kg wight while I was there. Now, my ambitions have increased and I intend to approach the condition I was in 10 years ago.
One thing that surprised me was that most of the people I met on Gran Canaria was concerned about their health more precisely health and physical training. I got in contact with a very interesting high school teacher that had decreased his weight and got in good shape by focusing on what is called the hunters (men as hunters) food also called LCHF, Low Carb High Fat. That implies that for some people the key to better health lies in reduced consumption of Carbohydrate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and not fat. What he told me was provoking. Potatoes, bread, sugar based drinks etc was like poisen to him personally. He could drink cream and loose weight if he controlled the level of carbohydrates below 20 grams daily.
He recommend a very interesting book written by a Swede: Istället för doping av Frank Nilsson - 9789172411753 - Bokia.se
English title freely translated by me: "In stead of drugs".
His focus is on controlling blood sugar levels.
The hunters diet, the diet we are designed for (also called LCHF, Low Carb High Fat) offers new opportunities. It does not just make ordinary people healthy and slim, but it also gives the modern athlete an iron health, as well as a normalization of the endocrine system with increased levels of testosterone and growth hormone. In addition it also provides a substantial increase in performance!
