Really good article by Robert Wright:Sam Harris’s book on that topic, Waking Up, is terrific. So is Robert Wright’s book, Why Buddhism Is True. They complement each other quite well.My best intentions would add a fourth pillar to diet, exercise and sleep - meditation. Sam Harris just dropped a podcast on the science of meditation which I'm looking forward too. Alas, Sam Harris podcasts are also my go-to for lullaby material. It might take a few attempts.
I enjoyed reading that, and with the added bonus I now know what a "way station" is, having looked it up, expecting to call out the writer on not using "weigh station."Really good article by Robert Wright:

Looks like a super researched plan MT.
I'm assuming you aren't a believer that grains are the devil then? Have read all sorts of nasty about that along with dairy regarding inflammation.
Am trying to come up with my own menu so to speak and was going to replace oatmeal for potatoes with my eggs in the morning.
Also, your thoughts on kefir, Greek yogurt, cheese and Kerry Gold type butter?
Grains aren't the devil. People who avoid grains often improve their diets by doing so, but that's not because grains are bad per se. It's because most junk foods contain grains, so avoiding grains means avoiding junk foods. Most junk foods are some combination or subset of refined flour, refined sugar, and refined oil, all of which are nutritionally unhelpful. But there's a big difference between whole-grain oats and refined flour, just like there's a big difference between a banana and refined sugar, or between a plate of olives and a glob of vegetable oil.steelerfan1 said:Also regarding your canned fish. Read some scary stuff about BPA which is in those types of cans. Wild Planet brand I believe has almost zero, but who knows if what they use is any better...
Sorry to be all over the map here, but also heard soy isn't great for a male?
Woo hoo!But as far as I can tell the best evidence is on the pro-wheat side of things for most people at most times.
This is interesting. While I don’t think the overall healthfulness of your stew is debatable, two of the main ingredients are fairly health-neutral IMO.
How did you decide to make white potatoes the heart of your stew? They’re nowhere on your healthy food list. And why bone broth, versus something like a veggie broth/miso base?
