Getting the Caveman to Come Out of the Man Cave!

Blair River, a big man with a big heart, died on Tuesday.
"River, who stood 6-foot-8 and weighed about 575 pounds, gained a measure of fame in the past year as spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill, a Chandler, Arizona restaurant that specializes in thick hamburgers and fries. He died on Tuesday at the age of 29.
Heart Attack Grill is an unabashedly unhealthy restaurant — the menu consists of huge burgers, milkshakes and fries cooked in lard — and having such a big man as a spokesman was part of its tongue in cheek "glorification of obesity."

The fact is, though we cannot live 10,000 years in the past, we cannot live on fast food and hope to survive as a species.  In defense of the Paleo eating patterns, I agree that cutting down on those simple carbohydrates in the form of grains and sugar can have a very positive effect on our health.  Dr. Wayne Anderson in his book, The Habits of Health, shows us how to chose foods and create  habits that will lead us to live a life of "Optimal Health."

Whether you are a meat eater or a vegetarian, you can find a balance that can help you live a long and healthy life.  Join us today at HealthCoachResource.TSFL.com and learn how you too can create optimal health in your life.
