AJ and Chris dive in to an all new mini-series called the PNW State of Mind Series. Taking a bird's eye view of something often neglected, but highly critical to our well-being: Our health! The duo talk
- Wrapping up the hiking season, and changing my mindset in approaching food
- Requiem for a personal newsletter
Primer: Published Aug 8: NYT OP.Ed. The Toll of America’s Obesity
Beyond the human suffering, diet-related diseases impose massive economic costs.
By David S. Ludwig and Kenneth S. Rogoff
Dr. Ludwig is a pediatrician. and Dr. Rogoff is an economist. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/09/opinion/cost-diabetes-obesity-budget.html
Diet discourse, views and opinions
- Slow carb diet
- Intermittent Fasting.
- Slow Food- Carlo Petrini (Italy)
- “Slow Food was started by Carlo Petrini and a group of activists in the 1980s with the initial aim to defend regional traditions, good food, gastronomic pleasure and a slow pace of life. In over two decades of history, the movement has evolved to embrace a comprehensive approach to food that recognizes the strong connections between plate, planet, people, politics and culture.
- Our approach is based on a concept of food that is defined by three interconnected principles: good, clean and fair.
- GOOD: quality, flavorsome and healthy food
- CLEAN: production that does not harm the environment
- FAIR: accessible prices for consumers and fair conditions and pay for producers
What AJ is trying:
- Eating healthy- not as a diet.
- Eating “Culturally and Traditionally”
- Son with allergy issues, means some things can't be in the house or used in cooking; adapting what goes on the family plate.
- RECALIBRATE that sweet tooth.
- Have tried/using Zero fasting app:
- See books + Argus app + Netflix as reference.
- Yes weight-loss as a result for the last month, but went into this for the mindset of better wholistic diet health; not as a diet.
- Observations from traveling abroad, and borrowing from Japan; BENTO

- Mindless Eating: https://www.amazon.com/Mindless-Eating-More-Than-Think/dp/0345526880
- “This book will literally change the way you think about your next meal. Food psychologist Brian Wansink revolutionizes our awareness of how much, what, and why we’re eating—often without realizing it. His findings will astound you.”
- Omnivores Delima - https://www.amazon.com/Omnivores-Dilemma-Natural-History-Meals/dp/0143038583/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1534452217&sr=1-1&keywords=omnivores+delimma
- Michael Pollan- “
What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, with The Omnivore’s Dilemma, his brilliant and eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species. In the years since, Pollan’s revolutionary examination has changed the way Americans think about food.”
- In Defense of Food - https://www.amazon.com/Defense-Food-Eaters-Manifesto/dp/0143114964/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1534452286&sr=1-1&keywords=In+Defense+of+Food
- Because in the so-called Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion--most of what we’re consuming today is longer the product of nature but of food science. The result is what Michael Pollan calls the American Paradox: The more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we see to become. With In Defense of Food, Pollan proposes a new (and very old) answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
