helpful start page

A guide to where to start and how to use ancancha.

NOTE I am continually updating and revising the content on this site to provide members with the latest and most relevant information about my experience and other medical and scientific discoveries.

ancancha is made up of pages and diary posts.

The pages

are laid out as in a book, so a good order to read them in would be to start at:

  • what, then read
  • you need to know, then
  • you need to do, etc.

then go onto the next section:

  • diet
  • menus
  • sauerkraut, etc.

Note that the top level menus headings are also pages ! i.e “exercise” is a page as well, and not just the headings below it, e.g. the gym, background etc.

Nothing should be a tablet of stone though ! dip into whichever page(s) interest you at the time 😉

TIP once you are logged in, and you need to be logged in to access all of the pages and posts on ancancha, you can use the members search to find anything of interest.

The diary posts

are set out in chronological order, starting at the first day of my first serious attempt, the 28th May 2011 to the latest diary entry. The diary is quite repetitive at times, but do persevere, as there is some great critique of fat loss programs, where I also continue my insights into my personal weight loss and health issues.

Tracking your weights and measurements

I think it is important to keep a note of how things are going. Mostly I use a spreadsheet to keep track of my weights, measurements and the other metrics I consider important:

  • Sleep
  • Hydration
  • Activity
  • Structured exercise

I do use an app on the phone for recording my weight training reps, and as of late 2019 I have an Apple Watch to record Activity and Health.
