Pondering, and Feb. 2019 Boot Camp Details by Stephen Cooper

Years ago I used to send out my newsletter only once a month.  Yes, only once a month.  It had about four sections, including a book review and a nutrition section.  At that time, I really felt that once a month was enough information to handle for my clients.

I laugh to myself as to how things have changed when it comes to the availability and the avalanche of information.  I just read a "social media expert" who suggested that businesses post 6-7 times per day alone, on Instagram.

But I wonder...

Does more information produce better results or more happiness?

I don't think so.

When you are thirsty, you need a cup of clean cool don't need a firehose blast of questionable city water.

I don't believe that the incessant stream of breaking news, tips, photos, fads, and other interruptions really produce lasting results.  It's like drinking a soda.  Sweet and enjoyable in the moment, but fat producing and depressing in the long run.

Here are a few things I've been pondering over lately...

Why the calorie is broken.  (article)
"A calorie isn’t just a calorie. And our mistaken faith in the power of this seemingly simple measurement may be hindering the fight against obesity."

Why You Shouldn't RELY on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements (video)

10 Tips from the Brazilian Health Ministry, The Brazilian Guide to Weight Loss

" Eat food, mostly stuff that has grown in Brazil for centuries, with other people."

That's it for this month.  Make the most of each day :)

Our current camp will end on Friday June 26. On Monday the 29th we'll start right back up with another four week session. This will be the last session before "summer break" when I'll be in Brazil till late August. We'll start up again probably around Aug 26...I will give you the specific details before I leave for vacation.

I am still working on the details for Boot Camp in Rio (second week of August) but it has been a little more challenging than I had expected. I will post any news as soon as I know.
