Fasted training: A myth or de facto?

Orange and Keto! Is there a way to make some peace?

My journey from classical Mediterranean diet to Keto

Those scary Epsilon additives that we ignore

Modern eaters Oh, those numerous additives. They put them literally in everything. One of the key characteristics of the modern diet is the constant fresh and nutritious foods rejection.
