I am still here although this blog has gone quiet. My work has been very busy leaving little time or energy for posting things here.
I've become somewhat disillusioned by much of the drama in the online fitness/health/diet world. The debates are religious in nature with heretics fighting strange arcane battles while 90% of the world just get fatter and less active.
I am also less inclined to give much attention to the alternative, new or faddish approaches. Ecclesiastes has it right - there is nothing new under the sun. Certainly the science is interesting and is discovering things, but there is little justification for the tabloid excitement about some new diet or exercise.
I think the mainstream science is generally right. Conspiracy theory is for the crazies.
This year I've leaned out for summer by simply cutting calories - no Paleo, IF, high protein. Just being normal. I lift weights with no special protocol. I walk. I even run sometimes. I stretch too.
Eat well. Not too much. Move. Lift weights. Sleep. Laugh. Spend time outside. Relax.
So I have little to contribute.
Www.hillfit.com sums up most of my thoughts.
I'll be back when I have more time and energy.
