Science concludes: “ We need to focus on our drifts to change behaviour. “

University professor Katan, an expert on health and food matters from VU University Amsterdam (The Netherlands), has stated recently on national dutch televison that we are victims of our drifts.

“Obese people are suffering from their instinctual forces to eat. And since there is an overload of food available we keep on eating. Diets have no value for creating long term results”, he said.

What is going on?
The human race has built-in limitations that are the foundation of our dysfunctions. These built-in limitations are a result of our (personal) past in the form of memories, habits, beliefs, behaviour, culture, education, etc., with other words: brain wiring. Continue reading


De invloed van stress bij ouders op hun (klein) kinderen.

kinderen en stressIedereen begint zo langzamerhand wel te onderkennen dat chronische stress zeer ongezond is. Kortstondige stress kunnen we prima hebben, daar zijn we goed op ingesteld en kan ons zelfs boven onszelf doen uitstijgen. Maar chronische stress leidt op zowel fysiek als geestelijk niveau tot een veelheid aan problemen, zoals bijvoorbeeld immuniteitsissues, overgewicht, hart- en vaatziektes, depressiviteit en dementie.

Rutting – the reason behind PPD resonance

It seems to be that many people are really specialists and see diverse application of their speciality in every field of human endeavour and I include myself in this. Lawyers see ways to solve disputes. Teachers see educational ways to solve behavioural problems. Doctors see drugs as a way to solve problems et cetera.  We all get into our ruts and we love them to bits and we live them and often make them so deep we cannot see out of them.

rutting and ppdsThe problem is as I see it from my rut, there is a lack of balance, and a tendency to focus on one particular area to the exclusion of all the others. When in reality they are all important. What is worse is when one particular aspect of life is excluded or ignored by the majority of people in the field whatever the endeavour.

Sports and it’s rut
With this in mind I want to comment upon what goes on in sport and athletics and fitness as an example. There seems to be an overemphasis on the physical components like nutrition, exercise etc. Continue reading


Disfunctioneel gedrag? Nooit meer! (dutch)

De gezondheidzorg in haar huidige vorm lijkt aan het eind van haar Latijn te zijn gekomen. Te dure medicijnen, hokjesgeest, onbetaalbare nieuwe technologie, onpersoonlijke behandelingen, over-medicatie, we worden geconfronteerd met de gevolgen van een systeem dat oncontroleerbaar groot is geworden en iedereen dreigt te verstikken of buiten te sluiten, zorgprofessionals en cliënten.

Max My Performance heeft het al jaren zien aankomen en heeft een andere aanpak gekozen. Continue reading


Our roots are our history, know it or not.

This is a true story about a cow and its calf. The old farmer said to his son, ‘make sure the cow is away from her calf when the men come to kill it’. Unfortunately the son came back too late and the men who came to kill the calf came too early. So the mother cow watched her calf being strung up killed and carved up. The cow died three weeks later, it pined to death.

This story illustrates many different features of the human situation. The old farmer knew from experience and possibly ancient wisdom the effects of such a trauma. The modern educated son was not so understanding of the importance of this situation otherwise he would have been on time, and the modern educated men who came to kill the calf didn’t have a clue about trauma, they were completely emotionally illiterate.
