Cleaning Out My Notebook Of Health Tips

Posted: April 10, 2013 in Dan Price White

I consume a lot of nutrition and fitness information, for better or worse, and started a practice of keeping notes of everything interesting in a notebook. In fear of losing my notes, I figured I would archive them here for myself and any readers who like such things.

Also, the headline of this blog keeps making me think of “Cleanin Out My Closet” by Eminem, so I Invite you to play this song while you read my tips if you wish.
