Examining Alpha Brain from Onnit: “Clinically studied” Means What?

Dear Onnit, I would like you to actually do the study on Alpha Brain you share with us on your website. Your 17-person proof of concept is not a real study. And you are kind of lying in the marketing of your most successful product.

Loving the Body: Size, Weight, Color, Age, Fitness, Happiness

As I am evaluating and learning to love my 50-year-old body, I am also aware of the 50-year-old women’s bodies in my range of sight. I have not had much time to look at them. I have experience with really only one such body, over the years. I loved all the changes in my then-wife’s body. I was into my older woman.

A Highly-Biased First Look at the Apple iPhone 8 and ATT Customer Service

Pancakes for Everyone Else But Me

I love pancakes. But I need the butter and syrup to make them extraordinary. So, today, at breakfast I made a smashing round of Pumpkin Spiced pancakes (organic ingredients only) and fed them to my kids. Yes we had the organic maple syrup. And I had two eggs over easy. What I’m really craving, most […]

Starting with the Body I Have
