Best wishes to all for the new year! This is a bit off topic, but this past year, I recovered from a stupid but very serious illness beyond my wildest expectations because of these health/life hacks, (and as of today it looks like 100%). I was even able to get rid of high blood pressure (which I had for the last 5 years). I would recommend anyone give it a try even if you feel healthy:
part 1
part 2
part 3
part 4

It seems that the key to nutrition is really simple:

  • eat lots of green leafy vegetables (Kale, Swiss Chard,...) and moderate amounts of good quality proteins and fats
  • cut sugar/carbs to below 20g/day (including fruits), zero, absolutely zero corn syrup
  • no processed food whatsoever (see the parallel with Web Frameworks yet?)

In my case, it seems that a Potassium deficiency and something called Insulin Resistance threw my metabolism off balance. It took about three months to get it back in working condition. I feel better than 20 years ago.

Of course, I would claim that's a #UseThePlatform hack :-)
Happy 2018!
