Lessons Learned – Facebook and Twitter Accounts

I’m removing the New Moon Fitness Facebook page. There are numerous reasons, but the final straw was the privacy fiasco and bad faith response with which Facebook has consistently operated. To maintain a business page, I must also have a personal page, and that requires upkeep time as well as...

Why Keto? Why Progress from Paleo to Low Carb

I just received Mark Sisson’s new book. As happens to many on Paleo or Primal diets, he progressed to a Ketogenic diet. (I have, too.) When Mark does something, he brings plenty of research along with it to share. This book has so much information and straight-forward steps to guide...
