Deft Tummy

Michael Pollan says, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

That’s easy to remember, and I’d add “five or six times a day”, advice, as I recall, from Groppel and Andelman’s Corporate Athlete.

A thrift shop title about storing food gave me “buy what you eat, eat what you buy”. The Berkeley Food Co-op of blessed memory taught me the value of buying basic organic ingredients. Shopping this way renders coupons irrelevant, which makes procurement simple.

The Ayurvedic medical tradition says to pay attention to the paste that passes through the gut, because it’s valuable feedback. Eat flax seed.

As far as I know, that’s all it takes to steer one’s metabolism in a healthy direction.

2015 Update: define an eight to twelve hour window in which to consume food.
