A story of salt, the outcome, your health & the female picture. The Science of healthy living.
Let us start from the tail of the end. Because we all know that every good tale comes equipped with an end that
makes the rest of the story worth reading.
And as such, the developing story of salt is a story of the roughly 2.5 million deaths around the world which could be prevented each year if
global salt consumption was to be reduced below the recommended levels.
A life of fitness is a game of chess. The Science of healthy living.
When it comes down to health and fitness, and the cerebral battlefield of chess the simple truth is that they are very much alike.
There are no unearthly and illogical surprises waiting in the dark of night that will upend and change the actual fabric of the landscape.
Your opponent can not cast fiery magic and summon demons from the netherworld to do their bidding.
Instead what we have is a beautifully defined field of known and still developing, yet for now, unknown for you and me facts and variables,
and the vast amount of personal choices those known, but evolving facts allows us to make.
And at every step of that personal journey, chess and fitness will leave you standing as the sole commander, at a vast field made up
of pure facts and deductive knowledge and the cause and consequences that every single choice will give birth to.
'The people that bleed' is our own label for a series of videos, all produced by UFC, that I feel show us a
more real and nuanced, intimate perhaps view of the
actual soul and personality of the real human being that makes up the flesh and bone, heart and thoughts behind the bravado and attitude of the
MMA fighter persona.
In this 9 minutes long video, we get to meet Brad Picket (25-14 MMA, 5-9 UFC), a tiny blue collar sized UK based fighter whom retired after his final UFC fight on march 18, 2017 against Brandon Vera.
The Unhealthy Practice of MMA weight cutting The Science of a Healthy Life
For most people getting a bit more fit, and healthy by eating cleaner food and less calories and working out more is a great life improving choice.
And for most, that will lead to health improving reductions in unhealthy body fat levels and body weight. But as we previously talked about in another article, when you are
already in shape, rocking a fit and toned body, eating healthy amounts of healthy food, doing weights and cardio, there comes a limit where dropping
even more in body weight and body fat becomes damaging and unhealthy instead of health and fitness improving.
And beyond that basic reality, you have the insanity of MMA and Boxing weight cuts that far to many pro fighters go through just so they can fight in a weight class that they are
to athletic and big to actually be fighting in.
I am saying that because MMA style weight cutting is not something that anyone interested in health and fitness should ever do.
Neither should pro fighters in my own opinion. In a ideal world you would be the only one doing MMA style weight cuts, allowing you to fight people 20 to 30 lbs smaller than you, with much shorter
leg and arm reach, 20+lbs less muscle mass and all the disadvantage that would give them in strength, endurance, strike impact and absorption.
But you see, when every other fighter do the same weight cut, no one benefits, and everybody suffers from the exact same detrimental and unhealthy exhaustion that MMA style weight cuts are.
With less fitness come fight night and potentially worse health for the long haul as the only real result.
Dairy for the fit and healthy guidelines The Science of a Healthy Life
Time and science continually march forward, and that is a thing of utmost beauty. But that simple fact also requires all of us to keep
an open mind towards the way we do our own
fit and healthy life so that we can continually adapt and improve as we uncover new layers of scientifically established health and fitness
and at times, accept that new health and fitness science-based knowledge might force us to change direction and toss out old established "truths".
So today we find ourselves in a brave new world where a comprehensive Swedish study covering the
health impact of daily dairy and fruit consumption
ended up giving us
so much new scientifically based knowledge about our health and food choices that the time has come to update our "dairy for
the fit and healthy guidelines".
Organic and sugar-free yogurt is still with us, while milk is completely tossed to the side, yes even lactose-free milk gets the boot out my door.
Why you might ask?
Well, the answer is simply put science baby, adapt or die :).
Milk is as far as we understand it right now causing real health issues over time that simply do not
happen when you consume sugar-free yogurt or no dairy at all.
This Swedish study involved close to 200 000 people, and the accumulated data over several years indicates that a high milk consumption
shortens individuals life span through increased
oxidative stress and inflammation caused by that daily milk consumption.
And as such milk has to go since yogurt provides all the same high-quality nutrition as milk and thus, all the benefits of dairy
can be met through organic, sugar-free
yogurt without risking the by now, strongly implicated long-term health issues associated with drinking milk.
Air Pollution and our health The factual Science of a Healthy Life, updated with WHO data, march 2017
Science continually spits out more reasons in a never ending string as to why anyone interested in their own health and body should also be caring for a sustainable society and world.
As if it is not already bad enough with modern day life´s annoying sidekick, air pollution, causing cancer, asthma and respiratory diseases and crazy smog in a growing number of cities. We can now add dementia to the list of unpleasant and unhealthy effects that life in any unsustainable society will cause through air pollution.
Swedish researchers at Umeå University have uncovered compelling evidence for a direct link between air pollution and dementia. The run down is that if you happen to live in an area that leaves you exposed to air pollution you will run a 40 percent greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia compared to if you would have chosen to live in a city with healthier air and environment.
Meat vs Plant when Protein gets to battle Protein & age. The Science of a healthy Life
In a recently published study, we got to take a pretty comprehensive look at nearly 3,000 men and women all aged between 19 and 72.
The study participants complete protein intake as well as all the various protein and food sources they consumed was measured.
Including various dairy products, red meat and the healthier fish & chicken and plant-based protein sources.
Beyond that the study also made sure to measure each participants lean muscle mass, their bone density, and individual strength.
When looking at the complete study, it was evident ( and to no surprise ) that the less protein you consumed the lower amount of muscle mass and
strength. But to the surprise of some, the type of protein each person favored did not have any impact on their strength and musculoskeletal health, and there were no differences based on gender or age group.
So keep active, eat healthy and make sure to include enough protein, and yeah, skip that red meat based protein right away because it provides zero health and fitness benefit for anyone.
To Dine and Kiss in Space Making love in zero gravity The Science of a healthy life
Making love, off world. And some of the many wondrous and perhaps flat out strange things you can expect to encounter during your future romantic, space date. In our rapidly approaching near future and a few fortunate souls present day reality, the perplexing realities of dating far away from planet Earth will no longer be confined to the silvery screens of yesterday.
Soon a rapidly growing number of people will be able to prepare and plan for romantic weekend dates out and away from Earth´s atmosphere. But beyond the tantalizing, and highly romantic aspect of kissing high up above as you look down back on this blue marble. What else is there to going off the reservate and into the dark unknown?. What about the little everyday things when you kiss, hold hands and make love beneath the stars, way out in space.
The health and age of your brain & how it correlates with Obesity The science of a Healthy Life
You already know how we can rejuvenate and strengthen the health and fitness level, and physical size of our brain even at age 85 by lifting challenging weights on a regular weekly basis. ( read the 'a healthy biceps equals a healthy brain article' ) But how about the opposite?. Will sedentary living and over eating harm or physically affect our brain earlier on in life in a negative way?. The answer is, of course, an absolute 'hell yes'.
Our Arctic Sunrise, Year 4.5 Billion The Living Planet Report
Anthropocene is a word I personally like. You encounter it quite often in the things I write and talk about. It is, in my opinion, a word that is as beautiful as it is powerful, and it is a word that shifts our entire world on its axis. This simple word encapsulates all that has progressed through human history, every single day of our global past and our shifting present day reality. It is our shared, mutual future. The word Anthropocene goes far beyond geology and hard to understand science. It captures the simple thing that is all our reality, the way humanity has lived and the cause and effect of it all. It also shows us the globally shared responsibility we all must shoulder. It is a word and a concept that defines the facts of our present day reality.
This single word provides a focused lens that captures the changing reality of human life and planet Earth. There are no obfuscated truths here, no shadows to hide within. Life in the Anthropocene is the simple truth of life on Earth and it is the summary of the catastrophic effect modern day society has already had and continues to have. Not just on this planet, whose planetary bounds we have broken and shattered. But the industrialization of the last 100 years has harmed human life too, not just a few, but all of us.
All the soon to be 10 billion homo sapiens and all the rapidly diminishing animals. We are all this single word.
It communicates the urgency with which we must act and it shows us how the lies and global capitalistic worldview of infinite natural resources and exponential growth that greedy shareholders and owners rejoice at must come to an abrupt end. It tells us these things because we are no longer a small entity on a big and everlasting, infinite planet. We, the human race, are now a cataclysmic devastation on a small planet, where we have reached the saturation point in the last 100 years.
One such truth is roughly 40% of all Giraffes being wiped out from planet Earth in the last 30 years, and no one even noticed it until now.
Arctic Sunrise - Year 4.5 Billion the birth of one more year
In front of me. The vastness of the arctic spreads it's wings over billabong and fields. Snowy valleys and frost clad mountains. It is all illuminated and painted by the lingering nightly shadows. Dressed up to play in the cold and vibrant arctic scenery. Fluffy white and deep ocean blue are the colors that mix so well with the pale red and yellow of the rising winters sun.
The scene that unfolds before my eyes this morning was given even more depth by the plume of misty winters fog that effortlessly reached out into the sky to greet the warming blanket of the winter sun.
We all know that natural sunlight helps our body produce essential Vitamin D.
And today we also know that a small, daily dose of natural sunlight is equally beneficial for
our mood and mental well-being,
it helps us improve and maintain our bone health all through life.
Reduces cancer risk and strengthens our immune system, possibly through the increase in the capacity of T Lymphocytes that daily sunlight exposure has proven to give rise to.
In short, get a small 20 to 60 minutes dose of outdoor daylight, every day, all year round all through
life. It is that essential for lifelong health in body and mind.
So, go ahead and kick the lazy bug in the ass and just get some daily exposure outside in the sun.
20 - 60 minutes per day.
It is that essential for lifelong health in body and mind. No matter if you are a sedentary and unhealthy person or a kick ass fit and active super food eating beast :).
To the surprise of some perhaps, make sure that the daily 20 to 60-minute exposure is free of protective sun-blockers.
This is the first piece in a short series of gym and fitness articles that will take a look at the great compound exercises that should be a
recurring part of every fit and active, and healthy living persons weekly workout schedule. And in this article, it´s all
about the mighty beast called deadlift.
More than any other exercise deadlift is the one I think of as
the king of a strong and healthy full body development.
TLDR Health, Obesity and Genes, the science of healthy living cuts risk with 50% even with 'bad' genes
Middlesbrough currently has the highest level of obese children ranging from 4 to 11 year old in the UK. In total England is estimated to have
198,036 overweight or obese children in that age group. But pointing that out has nothing to do with good looks and physical ideals, it is not about fat shaming, but
it has to do with health, however. Adults decide what children eat and how sedentary they are in that age group. At home, and at school.
So be an adult and make healthier choices for all those children's future health. Sedentary living and unhealthy food choices, or simply overeating hurt individual health,
and there is no way around that.
Body & Mind Train your biceps because it equals a healthier brain too
We all knew this. A healthy body equals a healthy mind. But a recent science study showcase something that might be news for you. Wonderful, health inspiring news and incentive to keep fit and active all through life. In short: A group of people between age 55 to 86 with a case of 'mild cognitive impairment', commonly called dementia were tasked with lifting challenging weights a few times per week. The recipe was simple, Rep away on roughly 80% of your maximum one rep weight. The conclusion: The stronger their body became, the stronger, fitter and bigger their brain also ended up being. Or as the lead scientist said: "improvement in cognition function was related to their muscle strength gains".
Never buy Caged hen eggs a simple and healthy choice that also happens to be the humane choice
Nothing much needed for this one. Eggs is a superb and healthy food choice, and you should absolutely continue enjoying that. But never, ever dumb yourself down to neglect how filthy and inhumane the industry behind caged hens are. So the way forward is as simple as it gets. Buy eggs from modern day farmers that caters to sustainable and healthy and organic, free walking farming. Your health deserves that, the hens providing you with that superb nutrition deserves it, and our planet deserves healthy and sustainable modern farmers.
Reducing cancer risk by keeping fit and active Your Fitness Tribe
Researchers recently found that a high level of cardiorespiratory activity was linked to a much lower risk of lung and colon cancer in middle-aged, and older men. Unrelated of age, both men, and females diagnosed with cancer also lowered their risk of dying if they maintained or started to do a high(er) level of fitness.
Excessive Air Pollution Is hurting almost every human being The Science of a healthy life
This is a short 10-second news snippet regarding our individual and global health: WHO, the U.N. health agency revealed in a new report published September 2016 that 92 percent of the global population now live in areas where air quality exceeds what WHO consider safe for your health. Southeast Asia, eastern Mediterranean, and the western Pacific regions are the hardest hit but it apply to the entire world.
The worldwide data broken down to national and regional accuracy was produced from new satellite surveillance as well as traditional measurements of pollution, in about 3,000 places across the world.
Not only is one in nine deaths worldwide in some way caused by air pollution, but perhaps more importantly, beyond that number, hundreds of millions of people are affected in their daily life with various health issues due to human-made air pollution. So the question remains, is it not time we all realized the immense health as well as financial toll of not adopting a far more sustainable and healthy way of life in society. People talk about the cost of going green and clean, but it is quite obvious the other way around.
MMA Workout Body and Health through MMA The Science of a healthy life
Movement in feet and body. Hooks, cross, jab, kicks and uppercut. Knees and elbows all combined make for a wonderful way towards better health and fitness. Mastering martial arts makes you better at self defense, sure. But more importantly it provides tremendous health and fitness benefit no matter age and previous experience. And it is great fun too, enjoyed as much by men as it is enjoyed by girls.
A fit ass will benefit your entire body The Science of a healthy life
Squat, Deadlifts, Lunges. The represents of the holy trinity of leg and ass workouts. And for good reason. They shape you, push you, and evolve your entire body and health better than anything else out there. But, there are, of course, a lot of other exercises out there that also deserve some attention. One of those is the odd bird called 'Hip thrust'. And while I usually prefer compound exercises over smaller and more focused exercises this is actually a wonderful exercise for keeping your ass not just fit and toned, but as a side effect your entire body healthy and strong as well. In fact, as far as your gluteus go, Hip thrust is scientifically speaking the number one exercise when it comes down to isolating & activating that delicious looking thing that is your ass.
Healthy living & Tasty Food Sustainable Designer Prawns The Science of a healthy life
We all know that seafood has the potential to stand right next to chicken ( and insects :P ) as the by far healthiest meat options. But seafood is not at all an easy choice since it has it´s fair share of major issues. Over fishing, depleted and completely unsustainable fish stocks. Insane amount of human caused pollution in the sea ( which affect both our own health as well as the health of a long range of animal species ), lackluster nutritional information, and even human slavery. There is a lot of reasons why anyone conscious enough to live a healthy and active lifestyle would choose to not include seafood in their daily food choices.
So, how about the best thing? The taste and texture and nutrition of shrimps, but without all the negative side effects of the fishing industry?. Enter, eco friendly and sustainable algae-based, vegan shrimps.
Healthy living & Tasty Food a fresh taste from the Scandinavian wilderness The Science of a healthy life

Fresh cloudberries or blueberries. Sugar-free and ecological yogurt and kvarg ( think really creamy greek yogurt, smooth like the sweetest vanilla ice cream ever tasted, and choke full of proteins ).
And if needed, you can spice it up by adding a tiny little bit of luxurious real whipped cream and cacao on top.
Read on to get the super easy and super healthy recipe in full.
Healthy living & Tasty Sustainable Food is the sweet answer The Science of a healthy life
Farming 2.0 which makes use of both high tech advancements in technology and science, as well as sustainable, organic principles holds the key to feeding our global population while also preserving our planet.
In a study published earlier this year, scientists making use of 500 different food production scenarios focused in on the task of feeding a global population of 9.6 billion people without expanding our farmland footprint which we already use.
Biceps & Triceps workout 'Like a Viking' The Science of a healthy life
This weeks biceps and triceps workout took
place today and I decided to switch some minor things up, resulting in a wonderful and sweaty challenge.
After 5 set of close grip bench press for triceps I decided to create one giant set by combining dips ( triceps ) and barbell curls ( biceps )
with a special biceps pull up version of "hanging leg raises".
I repeated this giant set 3 times before finishing my workout with 3 set of biceps dumbbell curls for each arm ( no rest between sets for those
dumbbells ) and one more set of hanging leg raises.
In addition, todays workout ended with 5 minute of sprint intervals and 20 minute of MMA.

Fit beyond 40 active, fit and healthy, becoming ageless
Life as a young, fit, healthy and toned guy/girl do not end once you leave your precious 29 behind you. Instead, the fit and healthy, young and happy feeling definition that people so eagerly, and so mistakenly wrong have persisted in pushing on to each other as a young person's realm since the dawn of mankind will only keep on moving up, up and up as we continually increase our healthy lifespan by making healthier choices.

My Workout(s) for the day - Your inspiration? The Science of a healthy life
There is, of course, nothing perfect or news worthy with what I did today. But hopefully, my workouts for the day can serve as fuel for someone to kick up their own health and activity choices for the week and days to come. And if so, me taking the time to write this little write up in the middle of my wonderful but stacked day is well worth it :). In short: Chest + abs and not just one, but 5 cardio sessions kept me one happy, fit and healthy pup today :).
Red Meat is making you age prematurely The Science of a healthy life
I could have added a ? to that headline since it is not yet 100% verified that eating all forms of red meat on top of other negative health effects also speeds up our biological aging process. Then again, I am choosing not to do that since I am of the opinion that there is so much ample scientific evidence by now that people that care about their own and others health do need to cut back on the amount of red meat they eat. Be it cancer, obesity, vascular aging, mortality chance in general, diabetes or a destructively rapid aging process, red meat just isnt a great day to day food choice if health is a concern/interest.
Today I spent precious time with the rising sun and the UFC. In between a flurry of calculated fighters violence, there was the warmth and calm pleasantness of the rising sun that washed away the coldness of night with each passing breath.
Adults with diabetes quadruple since 1980 The Science of a healthy life
WHO recently came out with a simple report that highlights how worldwide diabetes have quadrupled between 1980 and 2016. Sadly, zero people are surprised, or should at least not be surprised, since the increasing prevalence of diabetes ties directly in with the rise of over eating on shitty and healthy food and sitting still far too much.
A change that continues to walk hand in hand with the rise of obesity.
Fulfilling Sex and our Daily Health The Science of a healthy life
When it comes to sex you already know that I am always talking about the fulfilling kind of sex, for all involved. Naughty or sweet, outlandish or innocent does not matter. That´s up to all involved, how they all enjoy doing it. So, if we assume that you and your partner(s) already have a wonderful and fulfilling sex life. well in that case it will probably make you smile from ear to ear hearing that not only is sex generally speaking an incredibly fun way to improve ones general health, but it even protects against prostate cancer - and the more you do it, the better the protection.
Creatine for improved health In body & mind The Science of a healthy life
Long thought of as one of few actually working sports supplements for increased anaerobic performance, more and more research is also revealing significant health benefits in body and mind for those that supplement their daily food with 5grams of creatine. Making it an especially interesting option, perhaps even essential, for the active and healthy people that have already reduced their meat consumption in order to further improve their long-term health & fitness level.
Body & Mind Health the same Way The Science of a healthy life
It sadly still surprises quite a lot of people around the world that what promotes a healthy body, also promotes a healthy mind. And yes, just as you can strengthen you body all life long, you strengthen and maintain your minds health, performance and youth. All life long. So let us talk about neurogenesis, the science about a healthy mind for all of life.
Kitchen island gardens & farms Technology is making us all smarter farmers The Science of a healthy life
Once upon a time, yes really, virtually every human being was one way or another also a farmer. Cows in the garden, chickens pooping out breakfast eggs and pigs for the slaughter. The industrial revolution changed that and farming became owned by a few mega-corporations, with animal abuse, health, and environmental issues in tow. But now, in a world of climate change and awareness, technology have finally come full circle, making us all greener, healthy individual farmers again.
Growing Fresh Neurons in old Minds The Science of a healthy life
Old age. Such a terrifying word for countless of people around the world. But admittedly, up until now in the long and winded history of our mutual species, it has indeed been quite bleak to grow beyond your 20´s. Not only did people die damn early in previous centuries. But out of those that survived beyond their 30´s very few was allowed to age in a graceful and healthy way. Broken bodies and frail minds came out of an every day life made up of bad and seriously unhealthy, even toxic diets and daily living conditions. Made even worse by incredibly unequal societies. Countless of wars and actual scientific knowledge still being in it´s infancy did not help either.
Body Types & Your Genetic Makeup Tiny little Myths The Science of a healthy life
A brief article of mine where I talk about a short, sweet and accurate post by Neila Rey for one of the many basic things a lot of people still get wrong about their body, health and fitness level/potential. In short, you are not held hostage by your genetic makeup.
Morning walks and evening weights Coffee & water The Science of a healthy life
Yesterday was all cute frost and frozen berries, and today was rain and misty autumn views being served as breakfast. Yesterday was chest and abs, and today it was all about that mighty back and triceps.
Morning haze and frost Coffee & steel The Science of a healthy life
Waking up this morning, the outsides of the bedroom window where as frosty as the ground itself. Leafs and leftover blueberries looking more like frosty status than organic material when I later stepped out.
MMA Cardio The wonderful Science of a healthy, fit and active life
Welcome back people to part two in our MMA Cardio articles. Your body, mind and overall health benefits not just from lifting weights and eating healthy food.

Going with the previous notion of how anyone can greatly improve their health with just a few minutes of cardio every day. Here is an easy to do cardio-form which you can enjoy doing 7 days per week if you wish. Casually, low impact style, or high paced, highly explosive. 5 minutes or 40 minutes per day.
Reduced mortality in adults aged 60+ years with 15 minutes of daily low impact physical activity The Science of a Healthy Life
While not breaking news for anyone following us. A new study by Dr. David Hupin (and others) of the department of clinical and exercise physiology, University Hospital of Saint-Etienne, France have confirmed that even a small, easy to do low impact physical activity of 15 minutes per day greatly lowers mortality in people age 60 and above.
Barbell shoulder press is one of my personal fav exercises. Well, come to think of it, I, of course, enjoy every single exercise there is :). But still, Barbell shoulder press is an excellent exercise for sculpting toned and strong, and healthy shoulders. And as a bonus, you will also activate your triceps and traps.
This is the second article to focus on the truly body shaping lower body exercises. In our first one we talked about the properly named
"Deadlift", and today it is time to dig deep into its virtual twin "Squats". In many ways, an exercise that is extremely similar to both
deadlift and the amazing back exercise Standing barbell row.
But just like those two Squats is deserving of you doing this bad boy/girl every single week for the rest of your life.
This is part 6 in our ongoing series of articles that sees us covering all the great compound exercises that should be a permanent part of every fit and active and healthy lifestyle. In this article, it´s all about the classic bench press. A timeless chest exercise that´s stood the test of time for a reason, it works, and it works damn good when it comes down to creating a healthier and stronger upper body.
Welcome to article number five in our series of articles covering the great compound exercises that all should be a permanent part of
every fit and active, and healthy life. In this article, it is time for us to talk about dips, we previously mentioned this gruffy old classic
article about closed-grip bench press
and for good reasons, they are put together pretty much everything you will ever need for developing a strong, kick ass triceps.
This is article number four in our series covering all the great compound exercises that more than deserves to be included as a
permanent part of your fit and active, and healthy life. In this article, we will take a look at one of the classic back exercises that also
happens to be one of the very best things you
can do for a strong, well-rounded and healthy body. This apex puppy is called Chins, or perhaps you prefer to call it Pull ups, either way it is the same thing.
Close Grip Bench Press The Science of a Healthy Life
This is the third article in our short series that sees us focusing on all the great compound exercises that should be a permanent
part of every fit and active, and healthy living persons weekly workout schedule.
In this article, the time has come to talk about the beast that is close-grip bench press.
The only triceps exercise together with dips that you should always do.
Standing Barbell Row The Science of a Healthy Life
This is our second article in a short series that will take a look at all the great compound exercises that should be a permanent part of every
fit and active, and
healthy living persons weekly workout schedule. In this article, the time has come to give the stage to
the king of not just back exercises, but the king of upper body exercises.
Standing barbell bent over row.
Yesterday had me do a 3 workout split that went like this: Morning: coffee and water + a sprint based interval run. Midday: Triceps, Biceps, Abs. Evening: Hiit MMA that consisted of Kicking and punching at a high pace at first, and then followed by body weight squats and a slower, more yoga like approach to slowly moving between various martial art stances.
