Back in 2013 a chance encounter with a sphygmomanometer led to me discovering I was hypertensive.
Today I went to the doctors today to get checked out once again. He took my blood pressure - getting a reading of 130/80 (this reading was taken immediately after sitting down and with holding my arm in the air for the reading, all of which can elevate readings).
Forget Potatogate - you eat a diverse range of 'real food' (you KNOW what this is when you see it), with a seasonal bias, you're eating in a particular time-window/IF'ing, and, you are physically active - from taking the stairs (or parking the car a little further from the entrance to the store), to several sessions of strength training a week.
Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the evolution and role of Circadian
Rhythms, the so-called body clock that influences an organism's daily
cycle of physical, behavioural and mental changes. The rhythms are
generated within organisms and also in response to external stimuli,

I'd love to see The Notorious on a climbing wall. No better way to develop his inner boa-constrictor! But judging by the fight with Aldo, he is happy to go with striking like a cobra. Brutal skills.
"We need to stop thinking football is only a matter of the
body,...Skilfulness will only grow if we better understand the mental
part of developing a player.
"Cognitive readiness, improved perception, better mastering of time and space in combination with perfect motor functioning."
Remember, paleo is a lifestyle philosophy based on the broad conditions of ancestral selection, not a brand that repackages modern life as-is. Doing the same thing under a different brand-name is doing the same thing - and will leave you in the same place.
