Peace and Slimness Without Diets

Twenty years ago you may have seen the book with the catchy title "Dieting Makes You Fat", by Geoffrey Cannon and Hetty Einzig. Even though I was a skinny child and have never been morbidly obese, or even just obese, I have subjected myself and my loved ones to dieting hell.

Fresh Frozen Vegetables and Fruit

Hey I recently found some really good green beans that I reminded me of the ones we used to pick out of the garden and sometimes string a bit on the front porch. I found these at my WallOfChina-Mart (Wal-Mart) which is the "supersize" version. I liked how simply they were packaged and how they looked to me. I brought them home and cooked them and I say they're good. Your buds may differ, of course. And yes this is not as good as something someone else might be able to do with fresh this and that but it's good and if I don't add all the great stuff from my youth they should be pretty healthy.

Tour to Tanglewood 2007 Roadskater.net Team Dinner Lucky 32

2007.09.14 6:45 pm
2007.09.14 9:00 pm
US/Eastern
Here's another event, and this one's important if you can manage a reply, so I can plan for dinner. Things may change but as it stands we'll shoot for being at Lucky 32 by 6:45. The main thing to reply about is "will you attend the team dinner this year, wherever or whenever it happens to be?" The team dinner, like the Prologue Skride, is optional and open, but may not be too interesting to those not skating or riding or visiting the tour. You may add invitees to either RSVP. Let me know ASAP! I'll have the jerseys at dinner as well.

High Carb (Carbohydrate), Low Fat Grocery Food with Sodium, Potassium Nutrition Facts

Especially in long events over four hours, getting sodium and potassium (and other electrolytes if possible) are important, and more water is not better if it doesn't contain electrolytes. Some say "peanut butter" but during an event it's hard to deal with the fat that comes with it. Those who sweat alot and who experience muscle craps are often looking for sources of potassium. So I've been looking out for convenient sources of sodium and potassium, especially as might be found in grocery or convenience stores.

High Protein, Low Fat, Low Carb (Carbohydrate) Grocery Food Nutrition Facts

I wanted to share some of my findings in my search for relatively easy to find, affordable, options for high protein, low carbohydrate, low fat food. I typically go for high carb, low fat food before and during exercise, and try to eat more protein after. I love pizza and mexican-american food, so take that with a huge shaker of salt. Nevertheless, here are some of my favorites that help me get more protein and a little less fat, and also don't require refrigeration before opening:

A Liberating Nutritional Program for Athletes (Diet Exercise Weight Loss)

I hesitate to use the four-letter word 'diet' here, as that connotates restriction, sacrifice and misery. I also hesitate to call myself an athlete! However, in this bodyweight equation and given the unusually high number of skate-training hours, let the athlete = EB.

SportsGeezer's Health and Fitness Blog

I've been noticing lately that a lot of my fitness-related searches return hits on SportsGeezer's blog. In particular, his "Healthy Eating" topic seems to cover a lot of stuff that's been discussed on this site lately. It looks like he mostly blogs on stories appearing in the NY Times and LA Times, but he's a steady poster and adds thoughtful comments, and so I thought it might be a useful reference for our gang.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and Marathon Training

This post is partly for people out there on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) who want to find out more about getting sufficient and efficient carbs for marathon, or extremely long-distance training and events. This means no sugar, wheat, gluten, grains, corn, or potatoes. I put "marathon" in the title for the benefit of any SCD runners who might stumble across this. Obviously what I'm gearing up for, the 87 mile Athens to Atlanta Roadskate, is three and one third times marathon distance. A Google search didn't turn up anything useful for marathon training and SCD. So I thought I'd put my experience out there for anybody else searching.

Slow Food: Skate Fast, Eat Slow

I heard a reference to "the Slow Food movement" today. I did some Googling and reading and it turns out to be pretty neat.

Founded in 1986, in direct response to the opening of a McDonald's restaurant in Rome's famous Piazza di Spagna, the Slow Food Manifesto declares that:
A firm defense of quiet material pleasure is the only way to oppose the universal folly of Fast Life.

The Wikipedia article on the topic refers to it as "as the 'culinary wing' of the anti-globalization movement." Its projects include the "Ark of Taste," an effort to protect biodiversity and to "rediscover, catalog, describe and publicize forgotten flavors" threatened by industrialization, standardization, foods laws, and large-scale distribution. The above article describes Slow Food thus:
