Greg Johnson – Monthly Update 201709

Personal Update 201709 | 30 September 2017 | Saturday


I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update.

Health & Wellness

The big wellness news this month is that I’ve started another 120-day wellness challenge. This time I’m developing a 1,500 calorie-per-day diet with mostly low-carb foods and little or no sugar. The early results are quite good. I’ll have some clinical data for you in a few months. For further details, read “7 Powerful Wellness Videos on Weight Loss and Insulin Resistance” where I share further information about the program and some of the videos that inspired it.


If you’re interested in seeing some of the videos I’m producing, you can visit to see the latest uploads. You’ll find videos on technology, bicycle riding, woodworking, and other topics. One of my favorites was a humorous old-style “jingle” advertisement for Iowa City Computer Support.

Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.

    1. Yep, it does seem severe, but surprisingly it seems like the right number for me to lose about 2 – 3 pounds per week if I also exercise a lot. I seem to have a very ‘efficient’ metabolism. 🙂

  1. There is more to nutrition and wellness than counting calories? I hear you mentioning dairy alot. How about veggies? Increase in beans?

    1. When cutting calories to 1,500 it’s similar to living in a tiny house. One needs to quickly determine what their priorities are. So, with such a small calorie budget, I make sure I get the nutrients I need like protein. I limit carbs and sugar quite a bit since those make people more hungry. I don’t worry too much about nutrition. I take supplements and eat a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and nuts along with oatmeal, etc. I need to make an inventory of the foods I eat so I can share that with people. I expanded on this resource page which contains the sources of information I’m using going forward.
