When I was younger (so much younger than today), I would take four things out with me as standard.

It was a little mental run through I would do before leaving the house.

“Wallet, watch, keys, phone”.

I stopped wearing a watch many years ago though.

And don’t take my wallet out all that often any more.

Google Pay on my phone is fine for the vast majority of transactions I do.

I’ll only take the wallet if I need cash or am doing higher value purchases.

It’ll be a few years, I’m sure, but the keys’ days are probably numbered too.

The phone and / or finger print or retinal scans will probably start my car and get me into most places at some point in the foreseeable future.

And will we even have a phone in the end?

Maybe yeah olde chip-in-the-brain?

The world, is of course, changing.

But, the fundamentals still apply.

I still have on me a way to tell the time, to pay for stuff, get into things and to contact and interact with other people.

Like the world of food we live in is very different to that of our great grandparents.

I don’t know how accurate the figure is, but doctor and author Larry McCleary famously said “About eighty percent of the food on shelves of supermarkets today didn’t exist 100 years ago.”

The truth won’t be all that far from that mark, I shouldn’t imagine.

But the fundamentals still apply.

The added complexities don’t change the fact that our bodies still need enough energy to function.

Enough proteins, fats, carbs, vitamins, minerals, etc.

But not too much.

Weight loss still boils down to being in a calorie deficit.

Getting enough of the other things will maintain or improve health and probably make that deficit more doable.

Getting the majority of these macro and micro nutrients from fresher, less processed, more natural foods isn’t the only way to do it.

But we find it’s a way that works well for the majority of people we have encountered over the years 🙂

Much love,

Jon ‘Manic Street Preachers’ Hall and Matt ‘Goldberg’ Nicholson
