SlowBurn Exercise and a Low Carb Diet

by Fred Hahn on March 5, 2017

Do you want good health, lowered inflammation and protection from autoimmune disorders? Don’t juice or carb up – do just the opposite! Back in 2015, researchers at Yale School of Medicine revealed a compound that appears to inhibit inflammation in our bodies. The substance is known as β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB).  From the paper:  In their study, published in the […]

Life and Death

by Fred Hahn on March 23, 2014

People say it’s cruel to kill animals to eat them. Well, as I see it, how you kill them is the most important issue. You can do it horribly or humanely. I opt for the latter. I was talking to a client about this the other day. She agreed and understood that we need to […]

Can You Afford To Eat Well?

January 27, 2014

I saw this on the Let Fat Be Thy Medicine. I hope they won’t mind my shameless promotion of their movie by using this pic. And…you won’t be buying nearly as many (if any) antacids, acne cream, arthritis meds, cholesterol meds, insulin (if you’re type 2), dry skin salves, eye drops, ear wax removal liquids, […]

FredTalks – Strength Worth Spreading

December 4, 2013

I just realized that it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I place the blame on FaceBook for this. It’s all too easy to just toss a rant up on your wall and watch the sparks fly. It’s fun and it is easy. Too easy in fact. FaceBook posts are certainly not nearly as classy […]

Do Calories Count – Simplified.

May 3, 2013

If…you are eating crap and getting fatter and you start eating more crap, you’ll get even fatter. Probably. If…you are eating really well and becoming leaner and you start eating more (of all the right stuff), you’ll stop getting leaner and get fatter. Probably. This is how calories count. But… Eating more or less calories […]

You’re Seven Feet Tall Because You Eat Too Much

March 7, 2013

Or, do you just eat a lot when you’re seven feet tall? Think this is a dumb point to make? When this young man walks into a room, does anyone think “Wow – that is one tall kid! He must be eating too much!” No. Of course not. We know that he has a hormonal […]

Protein – How Much You Need and Why

February 6, 2013

Protein is the major structural component of every cell in the human body. The word “protein” is thought to come from the Greek word proteios which means “the first quality.” Protein is a very important dietary nutrient and many people do not eat adequate amounts of it or the most nutritious forms of it on a […]

Dr. McDougall a.k.a Dr. Potato Head

December 10, 2012

The purveyor of the potato/starch diet, John McDougall M.D., strikes again with more starchy gobbledy-gook nonsense about low carb/paleo diets. There is so much to dissect and render inert in his article that it may take me three parts to accomplish the task. Perhaps I can lick it in two. But whether it takes two […]

Don’t Eat Wheat

December 7, 2012

Here’s why. Listen closely to what Bill Davis M.D. is saying (and try not to listen to Oz). What isn’t said well on this Dr. Oz episode is that wheat is pervasive. It is put in foods you’d never realize like soy sauce, creamed spinach, french onion soups made with beer, french fries (to make […]
