Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog


This week we’re discussing the book “Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog” by Grant Petersen. In it, he destroys 30 years of conventional health wisdom and offers a common sense approach to weight loss and fitness.

The main point of “Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog” is the real reason we need to drop carbs from our diet and instead embrace fat. On top of that, he sees no real health benefit in jogging. High intensity workouts that hurt like a bitch are what really help.

The jogging thing I struggle with, as it was jogging that helped me to get into the shape I’m in now, and shave off the excess fat I was lugging around. It is for this reason that I like to refer to the book as “Don’t Jog, Eat Bacon.” They’re both very dear to me, but one more than the other.

We also return to the kitchen to cook a quick 15-minute meal – Chicken with Chilaquiles and Green Salsa.
