Happy Thanksgiving Day to my fellow Canadians, and Columbus Day to readers in the USA!
[Thank you all for reading, and helping me get this site started right! I appreciate your time and input. A special thanks to all who have inspired me to do this......]
Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family, enjoy the company of friends, and reflect on the subtle beauties of life. Family time, golf with friends, and the gorgeous sunshine made this long weekend particularly more enjoyable for me. Its times like these that we start to appreciate the opportunity we all have to create our own path and live a life we desire.
Why Give Thanks?
Let’s get back to the inspiration for this post. It is time for me to give thanks to the people and ideas that inspired me to transform the way I eat, train, and live. That sounds pretty hardcore, really it isn’t. Since beginning my weight loss journey I have read too many books and too many blogs, but all the knowledge I devoured has left an impression on me. When I started this blog my goal was simply to help people. The best helpers/teachers are the ones who have been inspired by others. So this post is dedicated to them.
Most importantly I want to thank you for reading and sharing my work!
My starting point (The pioneers of the new health generation)
I started this blog to help people take control of their weight for the rest of their life. I am giving thanks to the following people and websites that helped me along the way.
I have stated this before, but the friendly nature of his site and the free information he offers are a major part of my body transformation success. There are too many items to list, but if I had to pass on my favorite resources it would Marks Carbohydrate Curve. Thank you Mark Sission
Rusty Moore at Fitness Black Book provides quality content on a wide range of fitness related topics. I think I read his site daily for a few months straight last year. If you want to know more about how to get lean, and stay that way, Rusty is the man! Thank you Rusty Moore
It was on this site that I found specific details about the Paleo Diet, as well as simple explanations of where to begin. Here is the link to the page that helped me the most. PaleoNutrtion. Thank you Dr. Kurt Harris
Richard Nikoley at Free the Animal is the most raucous of primal/paleo supporters. His opinions are so intense; I just love the passion he shows for the subject matter. He takes the bullet for all Paleo supporters, as well as providing great meal ideas that I have tried many times! Thank you Richard Nikoley
I only used the Crossfit training program for a few months, but its principles live on in my training. Crossfit opened my eyes to non-traditional ways of achieving a high level of fitness. Thank you Crossfit
Carrying the Torch
Now for the new friends I made along the way. These sites are helping spread the word about the New Health Generation and provide such quality content; I hope you find time to check them out. It is impossible for one site to be so comprehensive that you need not look anywhere else. That is why I want everyone that visits the Healthy Teacher to get a broader perspective of what the new health generation is all about. Enjoy!
There are many more which I will be adding to my list in the near future. Thanks again to the readers! You make the path on this journey even more exciting.
