There have been some superb posts recently on diet, weight, body image etc. I thought i’d share a few favourites.
A slightly snarky look at food fads and the ‘wisdom’ of the internet. The Terrible Tragedy of the Healthy Eater.
And on weight, BMI and the dangerous approach of healthcare reducing us all to a single stat. Female Bodies: A Weighty Issue
Generally a pretty good site for information and body image positivity… Fat Girl, PhD
While Juliet E McKenna is best known as a fantasy writer, she is also a long term martial artist and has written sensibly on a number of subjects. Her site is worth checking out for articles like this one on the Nigella restaurant incident and why fighting back isn’t always easy.
This video of a girl beating a number of Jui Jitsu opponents was posted on Leicester Shootfighters facebook page and is well worth a few minutes of your time.
While he’s not been training for a while Alasdair Stuart’s achingly honest Judo Diaries are my go to when I feel frustrated or doubts set in.
Thanks to Alec McQuay for this article by Henry Rollins
Please add your favourite links on nutrition, training, body image etc in the comments.
Edited to add more links from friends.
My PT Karl suggested EliteFTS
For those of you who like to run (I hate it, there will be a post on that shortly) there is also the Zombie Run App.
Thanks to everyone who has given their suggestions. I shall refer back to these when I feel frumpy, unsure, uninspired or am just having a really bad day with my hair. 🙂
