What Happens When You Cheat
June 18, 2021
On Wednesday, the company I work for had a party to celebrate the reopening of our campus. What a joy to be around great friends, many of whom I had not seen in person in well over a year. And there were adult beverages. And I’m following a strict ketogenic diet. I had a couple of glasses of dry red wine with my friends. But cheating has consequences. I recently learned from Dr.
Poke the Bigs in the Eye
June 13, 2021
“The Bigs” include Big Agriculture, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, and, of course, Big Government. These malfeasant monsters get a lot of help from Big Tech, which silences dissent and demands conformity to the Bigs' “approved” beliefs. But the Bigs care nothing for your health and wellbeing. The Bigs look for ways to increase the prevalence of chronic conditions and diseases. On June 14, I wrote about the spiritual dimensions of keeping your body as healthy as possible.
God Needs You Strong in Body, Mind, and Soul

December 23, 1944. ‘Battle of the Bulge’ An entire US Armored Division was retreating from the Germans in the Ardennes forest when a sergeant in a tank destroyer spotted an American soldier digging a fox hole. The GI, PFC Martin, 325th Glider Infantry Regiment, looked up and asked, ‘Are you looking for a safe place?’ ‘Yeah,’ answered the tanker. ‘Well, buddy,’ Martin drawled, ‘just pull your vehicle behind me. I am the 82nd Airborne, and this is as far as the bastards are going.

I stopped drinking for 90 days Many of you know I enjoy the occasional (hurrumph) adult beverage. You might be curious about my experiences during long periods of abstinence. I’m doing Exodus 90. My exodus began January 21 and ends Easter Sunday, April 21. Exodus 90 is Catholic thing. It challenges men to escape from the slavery of this world through prayer, asceticism, and fraternity. The asceticism includes abstaining from drinking.
2019: Year of the Fast
December 31, 2018
Fasting is probably the healthiest thing you can do for yourself. It’s also the cheapest healthy thing you can do. Unlike most diets and exercise plans, supplements, and, especially, trips to a doctor, fasting actually saves money. When you fast, you don’t eat. Further, fasting is the simplest thing you can do to improve your physical and mental health. There are only two things to remember: Don’t eat. Drink some water.
Here's what's at stake on November 7
October 24, 2018
I get the feeling a lot of people think mid-term elections are like pre-season hockey. These people think the only election that counts is the presidential election. These people are, frankly, idiots. Sorry. They are. What’s at stake in less than two weeks is huge. One of the biggest mid-term elections in your lifetime. If you want it reduced to a simple either/or, here it is. Donald Trump will be an unstoppable swamp drainer and job creator or a lame duck.
Primary Fast: Day 14
August 6, 2018
You made it. If you began the Fast with me, today is the last day of skipping breakfast and lunch. (Unless you decide to makeone-meal-a-day a permanent habit.) What Fasting Can Do Here’s what happened to you during the fast (if you followed the prescription): You probably lost about five pounds. Your pants feel looser. You pull your belt a notch tighter. You saved money. (I saved $98.) You learned that food is an option most of the time.

I invite you to join a centuries-old tradition: fasting for a cause. Moses and Jesus fasted for 40 days. But this Primary Fast will last only 14. Some fasts require that you eat nothing during the fast. But this Primary Fast lets you eat one full, wonderful meal a day. Did you know that General Stanley McChrystal has lived on just one meal a day for decades. And one meal a day was enough to drive him through the war against al Qaeda.
Government Diet Makes You Fat and Kills You
February 9, 2017
If you’re sick and fat, it might not be your fault. You listen to your doctor. You follow government diet guidelines. You eat more fresh fruit and vegetables. You cut down on animal fat. You eat more grains. And you just get sicker and fatter. You’re told it’s your fault. But it’s probably not. You might be a good mom or dad who wants your kids to learn healthy eating habits.
Why Are You Letting Your Doctor Kill You?
February 5, 2017
If you’re overweight, have high cholesterol, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, or cancer, it’s probably not your fault. You’ve been told to eat poison your whole life, by people who are supposed to know better. Here’s some truth to set you free. Actually, I don’t know why. But it’s happening to you and millions of other people. Doctors are killing their patients. And they’re getting a lot of help from the government and big agriculture.
How to Hold Your Breath for 3 Minutes
January 29, 2017
Remember when you were a kid? All the weird challenges and contests you’d wage with your friends? There’s a good chance that breath-holding was one of them. Who can hold their breath the longest, right? I was always good at this when I was young, but I’m not that young anymore. I’m 53, but I held my breath for two minutes and 47 seconds last Thursday. And I could have gone longer, but I was bored.
