The Rules of Good Nutrition (That Absolutely Everybody Agrees On)

Fewer things can generate more controversy and disagreement than discussions about food and nutrition. It often seems that people will never reach any kind of consensus on what we should and shouldn't eat. But there may actually be a few exceptions to this. Here are 10 nutrition facts that everyone actually agrees on — well, perhaps almost everyone. 1. Added Sugar is a Disaster We all know that added sugar is bad. Some think sugar is a simple matter of “empty” calories, while others believe it to cause diseases that kill millions of people each year. It is definitely true that added sugar(sucrose and high fructose corn syrup) contains empty calories. There are no nutrients in it and if you eat a lot of sugar then you’re likely to become deficient because you aren't getting enough foods that actually have nutrients in them. But this is just the tip of the iceberg; there are other, much more serious dangers of sugar that are now reaching mainstream attention. Sugar, mainly due to

Be Happier: 10 Things to Stop Doing Right Now

An article by Jeff Haden. Jeff Haden learned much of what he knows about business and technology as he worked his way up in the manufacturing industry. Everything else he picks up from ghostwriting books for some of the smartest leaders he knows in business. Follow him on Twitter @jeff_haden . Happiness—in your business life and your personal life—is often a matter of subtraction, not addition. Consider, for example, what happens when you stop doing the following things.

Maybe you didn't provide enough training. Maybe you didn't build in enough of a buffer. Maybe you asked too much, too soon.

And when you get better or smarter, you also get hap

How to Change Your Life: A User's Guide

‘You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.’   ~Mike Murdock How to Change Your Life: A User's Guide by  Leo Babauta Start with a simple statement: what do you want to be? Are you hoping to someday be a writer, a musician, a designer, a programmer, a polyglot, a carpenter, a manga artist, an entrepreneur, an expert at something? How do you get there? Do you write your intention on a piece of paper, and put it in a bottle and launch it to sea, hoping it will manifest? No. The universe isn’t going to make this happen. You are. Do you set yourself a big goal to complete by the end of the year, or in three months? Sure, but that doesn’t get the job done. In fact, if you think back on most examples in your life, setting big long-term goals probably doesn’t work very often. How many times has this strategy been successful? I’m going to lay down the law here, based on many many experiments I’ve done in the last 7 years:  nothing will change unless you make a
