    The Short Mile (Healthy Habit #10)

    Run a mile every week. Why A mile is just too far to sprint, yet too short to jog. To do this effectively, you will have to run fast, but in a conservative manner… There are many advantages to running, and when you’re only covering a mile there are...

    Big Game (Healthy Habit #9)

    Have a meal which is almost all meat. Why In the last healthy habit you were unable to get a proper meaty meal all week, your little tribe has made a concerted effort to get a big game kill – and with great success. You now have a big...

    No Kill (Healthy Habit #8)

    Go 2-3 days this week with no meat. Why? Imagine you are living 50,000 years ago. You, or a member of your small tribe was unable to make a successful hunt. You are disappointed, but its not uncommon, so, today, like many other days, you go without meat. It...

    Primal Movements (Healthy Habit #7)

    Keep Your Skin On (Healthy Habit #6)

    Eat food with the skin on. This obviously comes with a bit of common sense. Don’t, for example, eat a banana with the skin on, and don’t eat an orange with the peel on (although maybe don’t pick off all the little bits of pith). You can leave the...

    Bad Baker (Healthy Habit #5)

    Avoid bread, and similar foods you would find in a bakery for a week. Why? Whilst I’m not opposed to the odd bit of wheat here and there, it shouldn’t be a staple part of your diet, even if you are not intolerant to gluten. Bread, and similar products...

    +2 (Healthy Habit #4)

    Eat 2 more portions of fruit/ veg each day. Why? Fruits and vegetables are high in a variety of micro-nutrients, and are our only natural source of many micro-nutrients such as vitamin C. Many people are consuming an average of 2-3 a day (although there are some who struggle...

    Explode! (Healthy Habit #3)

    Do one explosive workout this week. Why to do it? By an explosive work out, I mean one which requires you to use a vast amount of energy really quickly. Think something like sprinting (on land or swimming), running up stairs or even trying to do 100 burpees in...
  • barefoot-in-garden

    Make Contact (Healthy Habit #2)

    Spend 15- 20 mins bare-feet outside, 3-5 times a week. Why? Yes – this might seem strange and odd, but bear with me. This is called ‘earthing‘, and before you dismiss this as hippy nonsense let me explain. Early man would have spent all day walking outside bare-foot, outside....
