Trees & Pizza

“People will say things like, “But you never eat junk!? You HAVE to enjoy your life!” You have to re-frame that stuff and go, “Wait, are you kidding me?” What the heck does eating pizza have to do with me enjoying my life? If I abstain from pizza, are my kids going to get sick or am I going to start fighting with my wife or lose my job? This stuff isn’t about enjoyment and those are ridiculous statements that we make to ourselves.” -Jason Seib on this week’s Paleo Solution Podcast

A way of life I can get on board with. No pizza required. Just add trees, coffee, and sunrise.

Lots of great quotes on Robb Wolf’s podcast again this week. I really liked his conversation with Jason Seib. They talked fat loss, aesthetic goals, and the psychology behind why we do what we do. Though their point on why we don’t sleep with our best friend’s spouse made me want Christopher Ryan, of Sex at Dawn, to join in the conversation.

Also liked this story about local dudes making things from fallen trees. We had giant trees in my front yard growing up. The year my dad died, they died as well. It would have been so great to make something out them. Good thinking, guys.

Took shitty notes this week. Will do better next week.

Did you see this post from RP on the FB?


Interesting… And yes that does sound a little crazy. What about nutrient variability, metabolic flexibility, and such? Though props to this chick for her commitment. If someone told me to eat the same thing for 3 months I’d ask for my money back.
