A FIB / Atrial Fibrillation living and overcoming with diet. Heart health from the kitchen. January 28, 2019

I have been living with A Fib / Atrial Fibrillation for about 2 years. The symptoms vary and they come and go. Now in the heart of the winter I think I am retaining more water/ fluids since I am not sweating as much. (Need to hit the gym some more, maybe wear a sweatshirt).

Most of these posts are personal research BUT I hope this can be helpful for other folks.

Later today I will head to Trader Joe’s for some food. This research just confirmed what I already know/ knew. It also reminded me me of the ” sins” I was making in feeding myself and MY HEART.

Time to do it better.

** Interesting video with some very basic information. SUMMARY: cut out salt, oil and sugar, highly processed foods.

Now what diet to Follow? Metro, No. arb , High starch, plant base or vegan?

No processed foods????? How about the newly popular Raw Food Diets, which are also plantbased?

** Some general heart healthy and Blood pressure positive foods, very important for A Fib.

Booger Freeze before Brain freeze on the Morning Jog…. January 7, 2014

I remember the first time I saw this Calvin and Hobbes strip and nearly busted my spleen laughing. After running for 25+ years and many winters all around the US when traveling .

I also spent 4 chilly years at Notre Dame and northern Indiana gets down into the signal digits and the wind quickly freezes the boogers- eyes wide open and Brain freeze is faster than a slurpee (don’t even think about peeing behind a tree…..)

Keep your sinuses clear or the freeze can silence your brain..YIKES!

If really susceptible- make a face shield with a poly race shirt from last summer.
