The numbers on Canadian fitness are in, and they’re ugly

Jill Barker, Canwest News Service Published: Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Statistics from the recently released Canadian Health Measures Survey (see details below) stating that Canadians are fatter and less fit than they were 25 years ago shouldn’t have come as any surprise. News of our expanding girth and couch-potato lifestyle has been circulating for years. Trouble is, we’ve done very little to curtail what is often referred to as an obesity epidemic. Read more

Ben’s Paleo Challenge

Monday: was the cleaning day…… sort of. Again not going to lie I spent most of t on eBay trying to find cheap kit for army stuff. Found out it kind of doesn’t exist.

Breakfast: My favorite omelet again. Yes I buy a lot of eggs when I go shopping each week, green peppers no mushrooms onions and a very VERY small pinch of cinnamon. Tastes great!

Lunch: which was around two today…..Cough (EBAY ADDICTION), was very nice tried out the old chicken salad. Cut up some chicken breasts length wise then quarter them. Cabbage, carrots, cucumbers and spinach. And if you spice the chicken up with some cilantro it adds great flavor to it. Mind you I made so much I didn’t realize id eaten it all while doing the eBay thing.

Dinner: was very simple I had some burgers, mind you these burgers were completely within all the rules. Grass fed no preservatives. Taste was to die for. Seriously go to any butcher lay the rules down. Organic butchers are pretty good for this, tell them what your looking for and most of the time they get you some great stuff. Just stay away from chipolte steak. …… three words. RING OF FIRE.
