Batman Neck Fix; How To Make It To The New Year One Step Ahead; And A Cool Study About UPF

The average Thanksgiving gorging alone won’t set you back any more than a romp through a bucket of cinnamon rolls on Christmas Day.

“The real problems arise in the days, hours, and minutes leading up to the task, and the minutes, hours, and days, after. It all comes down to preparation. Attention to detail. Redundancies. Redundancies. And redundancies.”

That is one of the many beautiful quotes from David Fincher’s most recent film, ‘The Killer.’ And the one, I think, that most perfectly describes the time between now and The New Year,

“The real problems arise in the days, hours, and minutes leading up to the task, and the minutes, hours, and days, after.”

The average Thanksgiving gorging alone won’t set you back any more than a romp through a bucket of cinnamon rolls on Christmas Day. It’s the time between. The reunions, get-togethers, shindigs, parties, and hootenannies.

It’s the between-time that gets ya.

Great. We know the problem. And chances are, we’ve been dealing with it for years. Maybe decades. So what’s the solution?

“It all comes down to preparation. Attention to detail. Redundancies. Redundancies. And redundancies.”

It’s that simple. Not sexy, and certainly not easy, but it works.

It’s getting up out of bed at the same time every day. Even when it’s cold. Even when it’s a holiday. Even when you don’t want to.

It’s setting each menu the night before and sticking to it.

It’s deciding, right here and now, when you’re sober and in your right, unsugared mind, which meals will be entirely off the rails, which won’t, and then adhering to that plan.

It’s being weekday you even when it’s a holiday.

“Redundancies. Redundancies. And redundancies.”

Cool — And Timely — Study

Here’s one study that gets specific about what UPF might be causing later on down the road.

“Compared to a low intake of UPF, a high intake was associated with a 44% higher risk of dementia.”
