    So, lately I've been trying to get into a new lifestyle. I've been training every day, playing games less, focusing my mind much more on Martial Arts research and so far it's been going well. Yesterday my family and I watched the new Karate Kid for the first time (The one with Jackie Chan). I asked my Mum who studied the body in university, how long she thought it would take for me to develop the flexibility to be able to kick as high as Jaden Smith in the film and she said with continued training, excercise and weight loss it should be about 8-10 months. So I've set this as a goal. I have a horrible diet, consisting mainly of carbohydrates, dairy and protein, with very little fruits and vegetables. Starting today I've tried to conquer this and alter my lifestyle to better healthy eating. I woke up and made a smoothie with Strawberries, apples, yoghurt, LSA (A mix of ground grains and nuts), milk and honey and a cup of tea for my breakfast, and for lunch I've forgone the Grand Final tradition of party pies and sausage rolls and made myself a rather nice stir fry, hoping to start to incorporate at least a little fruit and veg into every meal.

    ANYWAY! Point is, if anyone else is looking for some better eating habits too, I found these three pages really helpful:

    Oh yeah, reason I called this Bruce Lee was because I was most heavily influenced by the Bruce Lee Diet page :p

    Paleo Diet is how I loose weight for upcoming tournements.
    Meat, Veg, some fruit and nuts....that's it.
    If I was'nt so lazy I'd stick to it all the time, I do start to feel great after a few weeks...just ain't easy to go without my pasta, pizza's, chips, sandwiches, etc, etc :(

    We're only human dave. I too have started and stopped several different diets, training excercises yada yada yada. The best thing that's worked for me was, not thinking about it. The thing that feels different about what I've done is I havent thought about it as "I'm going to start this tomorrow" or "What if this doesn't last so long". I've thought of it as "This is what I've always done." Today when I made the stir fry today, I was only planning to put Green Beans and Carrots, but when Mum heard what I was making she wanted to put Broccoli in it. I. Hate. Broccoli. But I just stayed silent, said "okay", made the stir fry, and then ate every damn bit of it. And I wasn't phased at all. Sometimes the best kind of determination, is the kind that you silence. That way, it's not anything new, and it's not anything you need to keep track of. It's just normal life.

    “In life, the first thing you must do is decide what you really want. Weigh the costs and the results. Are the results worthy of the costs? Then make up your mind completely and go after your goal with all your might.”

    Seems apt:)

    I'm surprised that Bruce drank something so common-place as Lipton tea, especially since the high caffeine levels and lowered iron absorption would I think go against his principles.

    Other than that, his diet sounds quite logical and healthy. (y)

    will anybody explain me why the PALEO DIET doesnt allow us to consume GRAINS ????? o_Oo_Oo_O

    Probably because of the phytic acid that leads to bone problems and iron deficiency, lectins which are now indicted in autoimmune diseases and several proteins such as gluten which have negative effects on stomach linings and health in general.

    Here is another one that works very well for me... milk, bananas and peanut butter... in a blender.
    It is natural, good for you... and the protein will prevent you from getting hungry.
