Cooking Oils
Getting busy in the kitchen? You're going to need a little bit of fat to add flavour and moisture and keep food from sticking in the pan. While some fats can handle the heat, others don't fare so well, losing their original taste and nutrition content in the cooking process. Oils which do hold up (i.e., have higher smoking thresholds) tend to be best for cooking, at least for those of us who prefer our meals without a side of char. Find out how to pick the best fat for cooking any dish.

The Importance of Sleep
One of my favourite feelings in the world is collapsing into my bed, physically and mentally exhausted, knowing that I have a long, deep, deserving sleep ahead of me. But that’s not just lazy indulgence, as a good night’s sleep isn’t a passive activity, but rather, I think it’s just as actively valuable as regular exercise and quality nutrition.

How Protein Works
Protein has a number of important roles in the body including the manufacturing of hormones, enzymes, messengers and immune-system components, as well as playing the main structural process of every muscle fibre. The amino acids that make up various proteins are therefore critical for the structure and regulation of cells and without adequate protein from our diet the body simply will not function. Protein can also help to reduce body fat levels due to the enhanced feeling of satiety and increase in fat utilisation that typically occurs. The effects on gastrointestinal health are also highly documented with increased glutamine intake being shown to develop overall gut function as well as aid decline in the immune system. The amino acid cysteine (typically found in high amounts in whey) will also help to promote glutathione level in turn having a positive effect on the immune system.

If someone was living in a hole they would likely eat to their surroundings, game meat, small poultry, eggs, fish, veggies, some fruits in summer, nuts and other seasonal fare. Although none of us are living in holes nowadays, hopefully, we can indeed learn a lot from what we consider to be a paleolithic diet without the staples of the modern world for enhancing our health, weight loss and athletic performance (1-3).
