My Diet and Exercise Recommendations

  1. Dr. P: Could you provide the link to your Diet and Exercise Recommendations again? For some reason, I’m not able to access the pdf.

  2. So I love everything on this diet already. I have a new kitchen and am really enjoying cooking which I think helps to control what goes in my belly. However, I do often grab a protein bar for pre-workout snack that is fast and easy. I can keep them in my gym bag or my car. The one I like is the RX Bar and has these ingredients: 2 dates, 14 peanuts, 3 egg whites, chocolate cocoa, sea salt. it this ok? Are the dates too much sugar? And is sugar from fruit ok? even pineapple and pears and peaches? I eat mostly apples bananas and blueberries.

  3. Hello, I’m thoroughly enjoying reading your blog (and finding plenty of evidence-based support for my habits :). I have two questions:
    – what are your thoughts on soaking (and rinsing) nuts before eating?
    – your ‘Best Diet 2018’ – what about fermented foods? I come from a region where diet is traditionally rich in fermented foods (kefir, sauerkraut, fermented field cucumbers, etc.) and poor in fresh veggies (due to climate). Wonder if these are interchangeable to a point/compensate?

    • Thanks for your kind comments.
      -on soaking. I don’t do it because it seems like too much work and my limited investigations on the benefits haven’t convinced me the benefits are worth the work.
      -fermented foods. I think you are correct. Personally, I love fermented foods. My daughter, an internist is really into them and gifted me theArt of Fermentation by Sandor Katz which is fascinating. My recollection of the observational data on fermented foods is that they are generally associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
