Manvotional - The Power of Truth

Manvotional: The Power of Truth

Man is usually loyal to what he most desires. The man who lies to save a nickel, merely proclaims that he esteems a nickel more than he does his honor. He who sacrifices his ideals, truth and character, for mere money or position, is weighing his conscience in one pan of a scale against a bag of gold in the other. He is loyal to what he finds the heavier, that which he desires the more—the money. But this is not truth. Truth is the heart’s loyalty to abstract right, made manifest in concrete instances.

Exceptionally good read, go there now and soak it in.

Running with Ghost

Because I am who I am, I've switched up this site's platform again. This time to Ghost, and I have to say, it's really nice being able to post updates from a browser again. The last system was really nice, but it locked me down to a computer that was setup to run and deploy the site.

So far so good.

Food “lifestyle” people need to get their poo together

I am so sick of hearing all these different diet system promotors vilify and debunk every other system. Paleo debunks Vegan that debunks Atkins that debunks Low-fat that.... aw, forget it!

What is a person with high blood pressure and high cholesterol actually suppose to DO? Do you go Paleo? Do you go Vegan? Do you just sit and die of heart disease? When your life is on the line, what do you do? There is no going back from a massive heart attack...

It's all fun and games if you're just looking to get healthier or try something new. But, what if you have an actual condition that needs to be reversed? Who do you believe? Who do you trust?

Everyone has an army of doctors promoting their system, and they all contradict each other. Wonderfully helpful.

  • Eggs are good, eggs are bad.
  • Meat is good, meat is bad.
  • Milk is good, milk is bad.
  • Low fat, no, low carb.
  • Grains are healthy, no, grains are the problem.
  • No sugar. No peanuts. “f*ck quinoa!”
  • Bacon is good, bacon is evil.
  • Up is down, down is up…. dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria!

ENOUGH.

By the way, "just try it for a while" won't really work. So, am I suppose to try eating eggs and bacon for 6 months to lower my cholesterol levels? What if it goes in the wrong direction? What did I just do to my body? Can that now be reversed? Did I just dig myself a deeper hole?

I want, no I NEED, an answer... not someone's opinion. Get it together!
