Feast/Fast Blog – Half-Way!

5 weeks completed now on my Feast/Fast experiment, and below are a few things I’ve noticed over the last month and a bit.

Gym Life – 80/20 Diet Strategy

I love pizza. I mean, I LOVE pizza. I hold my hands up. It’s pretty much the perfect food. And you can’t get a bad one either. The worst pizza is still probably better than any other meal in existence. Even the crappy deep pan pizzas (not to be confused with deep dish pizzas, which…
