Is Your Marathon Addiction Killing You Faster?

Research has embraced my long standing belief…

Something in my gut always told me that running for much more than a few miles didn’t really serve a purpose. Here’s how my unscientific thinking began:

  1. Running for long distances was not something man was ever required to do for basic needs
  2. Animals don’t hunt this way (sprint, kill, and take a break)
  3. No sport requires us to run and run and run (sprint, make a play, and take a break)

So with that said, I urge any marathon or ultra-endurance athletes to pay attention. I know, it can be addicting. But if you think you’re doing it for optimal health, then stop.

If you know running long distances on a consistent basis is not good for you (and your heart to be specific), then run on.

But watch this short video first from Dr. James O’Keefe first.

 

And no matter what exercise you ultimately decide to do consistently, make sure your body can move from a strong foundation. Make sure your body is in balance. If it’s off, any exercise may end up hurting you even while it’s helping you.

My Healthy Living Plan

If you really digest these bullet points, it can replace several health books.

  • Simple is better with nearly everything
  • Movement = Energy = Growth = Life
  • No Movement = Fatigue = Atrophy = Death
  • Eat only organic foods (dinner out a few times a month is okay)
  • Drink lots of fresh, pure water first thing and throughout the day
  • Eat for nutrition, not to stuff yourself and pass time
  • Know where your food comes from and how it’s raised
  • Grow and eat some of your own vegetables, fruits, and herbs
  • Drink one super green mix drink a day
  • If you can’t do a pull up or push up properly, stop using weights
  • Variety of movement is the key (run, jump, roll, pull, throw, kick, crawl, climb, walk, squat, and bend)
  • Play a sport at least once a week for exercise
  • Don’t be a lazy bench parent at the park (slide, swing, climb, and jump)
  • Walk around barefoot (always in the house and outside when possible)
  • Pull ups, push ups, hand stands, squats, jumping rope, and anything with your body trumps fancy machines. It’s not even close.
  • Push, pull, and lift heavy stuff at least once a week
  • Never blindly take any pills (or shots) a doctor says “are perfectly safe” without looking more closely at what you’re taking and the effects long term
  • Take a walk after dinner with someone you love
  • Eat “real” junk food for desert (grass fed butter, raw honey, dark chocolate, fresh fruits, etc.)

Custom fit orthotics are similar to Killz paint for stained or moldy walls. You can paint over the ugly wall and make it white, but you didn’t really get rid of the ugly problem. It’s still there.

Tired and achy feet don’t need special orthotics. Yes, there may be the rare exception. But let’s not talk about the rare exception. Because products like Dr. Scholl’s “custom” orthotic machine in stores would make you believe everyone should be wearing orthotics.

The reality is most people would start to feel better if they simply spent the vast majority of their time walking around in bare feet. And when they have to wear shoes, a pair that’s as minimal as possible. Meaning, a pair of shoes where you can actually feel the ground you walk on.

The Kenyans that run in their bare feet are not exceptionally gifted. They just didn’t brainwash their bodies with technology. Imagine that.

Orthotics don’t address the real problem of why you’re feet are tired and achy. They might mask it temporarily. The same way a special wrist brace does for people with “carpal tunnel syndrome.” Anything that prevents your body from moving in a 100% natural, unrestricted way will have negative side effects over time.

Think about it. If you’re restricting your movement with a brace, you’re preventing the body from performing in a natural way.

Compensations are sure to take place.

It’s important to look at what caused the problem in the first place. Again, it’s not the tire that’s the problem.

It’s the car’s alignment.

So doesn’t it make sense to figure out what’s causing the alignment problems?

If one hip is higher than the other, it’s not that one leg is longer or shorter. That’s ridiculous. click to continue…

Is Organic Food Better Than Conventional Food?

A recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine essentially says that organic food is no better or safer for you than conventional food.

I don’t want to make this a long, drawn out post researching all of the likely flaws of the study. In terms of studying the effect of organic vs. conventional foods, let’s just stick to the key stuff and draw some reasonable assumptions for you.

It’s more important to look at what something really means for YOU.

First, the study only followed people for two years. This is nowhere near long enough of a time to study the drip effect of pesticides on foods effects on the body.

And the pesticide effect, to me, is the most relevant piece in the puzzle. The study did indeed indicate that eating organic vegetables and fruits reduced exposure to pesticide residues by about 30 percent.

Now, let me counter something right away. Don’t give me the line about how conventional foods pesticide levels are within the allowable limits. According to whom? The FDA or other organizations controlled more by large companies like Monsato, that makes billions off of Genetically Modified Organisms resistant to wonderful products like Round

Up that kill everything else around the GMO crops, but let the GMO crop thrive – say it’s good for you? And you’re going to believe them? Good luck with that.

So the key question to ask is: “Over time, would exposure to 30 percent more pesticides likely worse for my body?”

Sorry, I did guide you a bit in that question.

Of course 30 percent more pesticide exposure is worse for your body. Is it really necessary to dig deeper into why pesticides that have DANGER WARNINGS on the label would be bad for your health long term?

When someone says, “Well it’s only a little bit,” I say, “Well, let me put only a little bit of dog poop on your dinner plate. I mean it’s only a little bit right?”

Point made I hope.

Don’t read headlines and let people confuse you.

The second point has a deeper implication. It’s the effect all of these chemical and pesticides have on the overall environment. The vast majority of the fish is unsafe to eat because waters are polluted. To the extent we can control the bad stuff going into the ground, water and air from the crops we grow we should.

And ditto for household products. Plenty of natural, biodegradable alternatives exist. And nothing cleans much better than scorching hot water.

Now, one final point to consider for your overall health.

Stop eating organic junk.

It’s this organic junk food industry that has grown leaps and bounds, and too many people foolishly think they’re eating healthier when they really aren’t. Yes, less pesticides, but not healthier foods.
