HI I’m Andrew with the Foolish Couple.
Do men look sexier as they age?
Well, if you have been following this blog, then you know that men can get sexier as they age, but only if they take care of themselves. I feel sexier now than when I was in my 30’s. I have more energy and stamina, my complexion is clear and every morning, I actually wake up feeling refreshed and alert, without any aches and pains.
I have been sharing tips over the last couple of weeks on how to look and feel sexier as a man. If you’ve missed the older episodes, I have included the links here so that you can go back and watch them later.
Now, I’m not talking about doing Botox or anything extreme like that. That just doesn’t look natural and potentially can have all sorts of side effects. All I’m asking you to do, is to sleep, drink clean...
Welcome back to the Foolish Review. I am Andy, and I have just celebrated my 49th birthday last week and for many of us, birthday is the time to review how our last year went and really get in touch with our inner selves.
For Minna, who also has the same birthday as me, we feel blessed that we feel younger and healthier than ever. If anything, not only do we not feel any older, we actually feel younger, we have more energy, our body shapes are a little more flattering, and our posture is also getting better.
And all that, comes with daily nutrition and the proper types of fitness routines. So if you want to stop feeling older every day, we have some tips for you.
Last time I talked about the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. Nowadays, people compete on how little sleep they get and I think that is going the wrong direction. In fact, to really track how well our sleep is, as our birthday presents, we both got ourselves an Oura ring which not only...
We created this series called ‘Demystifying Fats’ because we grew up thinking that fats are fat. Fats makes us fat, and fat gives us high cholesterol, which leads to heart attacks.
But that’s not entirely true.
In this series, we’ll go deeper into the history of how this ‘belief’ about fats came from, and what is the real truth. We talk about how fats can heal our bodies and what we should eat that will not only improve our health, but eating the right kinds of fats can actually makes us leaner, gives us more energy and vitality, and keep us feeling younger and stronger.
Hi. We are the Foolish Couple. My name is Minna, and this is my husband Andy. So far, in this video series ‘Demystifying Fats and the Truth about Sugars’, we have been talking about fats. Today we are going to switch to sugars. Do you ever wonder if you have metabolic issues? We’ve often heard of the...
Hello. I am Andrew, This is my wife Minna, and we are the Foolish
Couple. Both of us have suffered through a variety of health issues, me
with my major accident that left me feeling like a 70 year old man, Minna
with her issues with eczema, allergies, and anemia.
Over the last two years, I lost my dad through Parkinson’s, my older brother had a few scares with diabetes and his kidney, and seeing my mother-in-law slowly
lose her memory through Alzheimer’s. I feel the pain when my family members are suffering from poor health. And many of you probably do too. Fact is, when you suffer from chronic pains and diseases, the people around you also suffers with you.
We want to help you alleviate some of this pain, so we came up with this
video series because we are fed with so many lies about what’s good for
our health. As children raised in Chinese households, our parents always
taught us what we should and should not eat. What our parents thought
were healthy for us,...
The last couple of years has been particularly hard on us.
My father passed away due to complications from his Parkinson’s disease, which is something he had been suffering for over 12 years.
Minna’s mother broke her hip and got a hip replacement a couple of years ago. But she never really fully recovered from the surgery. Every time we see her, she seemed to have deteriorated a little more.
My mother has osteoporosis of her knees and her knee pains are getting worse every year.
And what hurt me most this year was when I found out that my older brother, his name is Sam. Sam has been diagnosed with kidney failure and I have made multiple visits back home to support him, take him through his tests and diagnosis and trying to change his lifestyle and habits to reverse some of his symptoms of his diabetes, high blood pressure and lose some weight because all these chronic diseases ultimately led to his kidney problems.
So over the course of just 2...
Hello. We are the Foolish Couple. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and we help couples achieve total success in health and in relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be talking about "Healthy Aging".
To us, healthy aging means:
We came up with the 3 pillars of healthy aging. And today we’ll talk about the first one.
The first pillar to healthy aging has to do with our eating habits. Too many of us eat like it’s our last meal. They eat whatever they feel like, without thinking about the consequences of how the food affects their bodies.
Good foods can heal you, but bad foods can really hurt you. Your choice of food is...
Well, that’s what we’re going to talk about today.
So far this week we have been quoting excerpts from our free downloadable e-book Gut Matters that is available now and you can get your own copy. We’ve talked about the gut brain connection, what microbiomes are, and in our last episode we talked about the 6 factors that influences inflammation inside our gut, and we also talked about what leaky gut is.
Today, we’re going to talk about the 4 ways to optimizing your digestion. Because, after all, what’s the point of knowing all this about your gut if you are not going to do something to improve your gut health right?
We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and our goal is to help people achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercises, mindset and lifestyle.
So here it is.
Your gut can make you happy and it can make you cranky. Your gut may affect your emotions without you ever knowing it. Do you wonder how that happens?
This week we have been quoting excerpts from our free downloadable e-book Gut Matters that is available now and you can get your own copy. We’ve already talked about the gut brain connection, how your gut and your brain talks and replies to each other, and that’s how your gut can affect your mood also. We’ve also talked about microbiomes and how it heavily impacts your overall health.
Today, we’ll tell you more about gut problems. You’ll want to stay with us because we are going to tell you the 6 factors that influences inflammation in your body. And inflammation is pretty much the culprit of almost all chronic diseases.

The Gut-brain connection
How well do you know your gut? We sometimes talk about having gut feelings, or that our gut is not feeling well. But do you really know where your gut is and what it does? What are the different parts of your gut and how do you keep your gut healthy?
We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and our goal is to help people achieve true health and healthy relationships by nutrition, exercises, mindset and lifestyle.
Your gut, which is also known as your gastrointestinal track (GI track), is a magnificent processor with a genetic intelligence that is encoded in every one of your microbes. (Excerpt, Gut Matters, Chapter 1).
Your gut, in addition to promoting normal gastrointestinal functions, also provides protection from infection,...
Welcome to Foolish Insights. We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna, nutrition coaches and success mentors. We created the FoCo Academy to guide and mentor people to achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle changes.
So far this week we have been talking about a few myths on health. We’ve talked about how a 60 year old actually has the same capacity to build muscle mass as a 30 year old, but only if they have the same levels of nutrition and they do muscle building exercises.
We also confirmed the fact that you really don’t need to eat everyday, 3 meals a day. Both of us has done extended fast for 5 days and not only did we survive, our bodies actually came out thriving as a new fat-burning machine. Yesterday we explained how saturated fat is not bad for you but is actually essential for your good health, but highly processed foods are the real culprits behind a lot of...
