Learn To Walk Before You Can Run

I didn’t really feel much like running this evening. I started a new job today and, as is often the case with starting a new job, I was a bit bored. It’s not that work isn’t interesting; it’s just that I didn’t get to do very much other than watch other people, which isn’t much […]

Fastetics Dice Fasting

This post will hopefully introduce a fun fasting protocol that I find breaks some of the monotony of fasting and keeps things fresh. One of the conversations I have a lot is about choosing a fasting protocol and how to pick a fasting window and feeding window when intermittent fasting. As a general rule, the […]


This is really interesting. I may give it a go – Ike Onwubuya

Shonda Rhimes weight loss motivation

Shonda Rhimes’ stint as a candy striper while attending high school in Chicago Heights inspired her to create “Grey’s Anatomy”, she told in an article posted online Friday. “But I was like, “This isn’t ever going to be any fun, but you’re just going to have to do it anyway”, Rhimes said. On November 10 she will be releasing her new memoir, Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person. Or nicely plus size. “Her pioneering work on Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder has redefined the role of women in media and spurred the debate about diversity in television”.
It’s Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes and she’s not letting anything hold her back. “Food makes you feel better. And then I put her down for her nap”, Rhimes said. “I have a 3-year-old and a 13-year-old and a 2-year-old, and I wanted to be around for them, be healthy”. For a long time, Rhimes said, she thought wanting to be “thin” felt amost anti-feminist, even “shallow and misogynistic”. As anyone who thinks in storytelling format for a living might have done, she decided she simply had to try spending a whole year saying yes to all the opportunities she normally would say no to and see where it led. Rhimes, 45, doesn’t have a particular end goal in sight; however, she likes seeing the numbers drop on her scale. “I realized that I could spend my life thinking, ‘I wish I could lose weight, ‘ or ‘I’m going to, ‘ or ‘I’m trying to, ‘” she adds. In the book, she shared about her last serious relationship with a man who cared for her. She, however, realized that being married to someone is something out of her priorities.

Tilapia, Prawns and Mango Salsa

Tilapia is a very popular fish used in West African cuisine. The first time I remember it paired with mango was at a Thai restaurant and I instantly fell in love. Having tilapia down in my top 3 choice of fish since I was a teenager had meant that I had become accustomed not only to […]


This meal can be used as part of a calorie controlled diet to aid weight loss. The meal will resonate well with Africans and diaspora – Ike Onwubuya
