The Fast Five Lifestyle

  Scott Carney’s book, What Doesn’t Kill You… mentions something called “the fast five diet”.  It is an official fad diet, which is based around the idea of only eating within a small window each day, and fasting the rest of the time (water, tea, etc okay).  The official diet got its name by making that window…

WHM Advanced Course (Part 2)

Part 1 was written just after I got back from the course, and was focused on what I learned.  This part is going to be more about the experience and higher-level components the course.  But I’m more driven by knowledge than I am driven by experiences, so I procrastinated on writing it after I’d gotten…

Breath Holding and Polar Plunges

WHM Week 6+:  Breath Work in Cold Water So when I went through week 6 and 7 in the online course, it wasn’t clear from Wim’s poor English (in videos and in writing) what you’re really supposed to do.  It turns out I was doing it wrong.  He wants you to do breathing NOT in…
