I found this while doing some research and found it to be quite the wake up call (no pun intended). I am not a doctor, and while I don’t agree with all of the advice in the documentary, some of what they say strikes a chord with me. It is also a reminder that even though our family has had a rough year, it is time for us all to get back to a clean diet and exercise routine.
King Corn is an interesting documentary about the over abundance of corn in the American diet and the ramifications this has had on our health. This is particularly concerning due to the large amounts of pesticides used on this majorly genetically modified crop. Two thumbs up from us at Liskabora.
After a break of a few years from one of my old favorite activities, I finally decided to start up again. I only lasted about fifteen minutes today, but that is a good start. Hopefully in a week I will be able to make it through a full run. The next step after that will be to make the transition from treadmill to the great outdoors. I should be in good enough condition to handle that in plenty of time to fully enjoy running outdoors in the beautiful fall season. My new kicks make this so much more fun too!
