Healthy Sexy And Kinky

We all like to look sexy naked, G and I exercise pretty regularly, some weeks more than others, but we try to be consistent about it.  We do yoga, lift some light weights and try to play some sort of sport.

But really the key to our overall health is the way we choose to eat. We eat primarily nutritionally dense foods, i.e. lots of fruits and veggies. To us that has been the key to maintaining a healthy weight. Sure we do enjoy the sweet decadent stuff, but we dont buy it, or bring it into our house. The added benefit of eating this way is if we miss out on exercising a day or two, or sometimes three, our bodies still maintain our desired look.

It took us a a long time to come to this realization since I was raised on a farm, ate what we killed, and was taught that meat makes men strong, and milk makes your bones stronger. The blank stares I get from people when I tell them I dont eat meat or dairy, is always followed by the question; Where do you get your protein/calcium, etc ? I point out that a serving of broccoli has almost the same amount of protein as the same serving of meat, and more calcium than milk. The thought that always comes to my mind is if milk is so darn good at making strong bones then why do we have such high instance of osteoprosis in our society ?

There were two books that I read that changed the way I look at eating. The first is The China Study, by Thomas Campbell, and the second is Eat To Live by Dr Joel Fuhrman. Both books look at the causes of obesity, additionally they provide evidence of the disease preventing benefits of a plant based diet. Especially check out Dr. Fuhrmans website Disease Proof.

Now before you scream Vegan! we dont look at it that way. Eating this way has many many benefits over a traditional “diet”, first there are no calorie counting, carb counting, or anything like that. When eating nutritionally dense food first you dont have to worry about eating too much of any one food, your body will naturally distribute the nutrition where it needs to go. Second, treat meat, dairy products, and processed food which are high fat, carcinogenic foods as sides, a small portion to add to your meal.

I have always been a thin person, but had the “Buddha belly” thats inherit in the men in our family, after changing my food choices I dropped a little over 30 pounds, most of it pretty quickly. Georgia, dropped a little over 80 pounds when she changed her diet, both of us even when we dont exercise stay within about 5-10 pounds of our preferred weight.

It takes work for persons to change their diet, I couldnt have done it alone or without support. But after a few days your taste buds begin to change, the excess water weight disappears, eventually you will find yourself craving sweet fruit or creating super healthy dinners with your partner, cooking sweet treats for that sweet ass !

  1. I’ve just started to change my regime to a more healthy one with plenty of exercise and now I need to look at my diet.
    You raised some interesting points and I will be looking in to weaning myself off the red meats. I can’t contemplate giving up bacon yet but who knows. 🙂

  2. I know we’ve talked about this before, but I totally understand how it feels when people ask where you get your protein or calcium. Lol. 🙂 There’s a lot of misconceptions in the USA about nutrition, and it’s just frustrating to me I guess.

    I also know you don’t call yourselves “Vegan”, but I do, and I think it’s funny that no matter how many times I explain to my mother that I don’t eat meat, she asks if I still eat fish and chicken. Lol. Gotta love moms.

    Very insightful post, and I completely agree with you. 🙂

  3. @kitty – lol…you are correct about misconceptions and moms.

    @sexpress – I remember when bacon was a staple around our house, you know the thick sliced smoked bacon, slow cooking in the morning, mmmm.

    Thanks for the comments, I will elaborate more about how we eat in other post and include some recipes. But I really encourage people to get the book eat to live, lots of explanation backed up by science.

    Disclaimer: we do eat fish and poultry, but we limit those dishes to weekends or minimal servings. Georgia is still having her ongoing love affair with shredded mozarella cheese, which I tease her about mercilessly.

  4. What a great post! I have been an animal rights kinda person all my life and my dream guy, who has been a vegetarian for years (and is big and strong) convinced me what a hypocrite I was to fight for animals and then come home and eat one.

    Thanks for this post!
