Hello, my name is Lydia. I believe the best way to predict my future is to create it. To do that, I make it a habit to improve my health.
My goal is to maximize my physical performance and mental clarity, body composition, and most importantly my overall health with a wholesome diet and exercise.
Why am I so concerned, you may ask. My motivation came from watching my mother suffer from numerous illnesses. Her life was regulated by when she had to take her drugs.
I have been retired for a while and I have yet to experience any of her illnesses. I attribute that to eating a wholesome diet and exercise.
I supplement my diet with high-quality vitamins, mineral supplements.
In my posts, I focus on two diets: the Ketogenic (Low-Carb /Atkins) and GAPS (Gut and Psychology / Physiology Syndrome) diets.
My exercise of choice is Dr. Doug McGuff’s Super Slow High-Intensity Exercise Program that I do for 15 minutes, once a week. Here is the link to the PDF version of his book https://ia801905.us.archive.org/23/items/BodyByScience/Body%20by%20Science.pdf
