This little book is about what has worked for me, and about what has worked for others when I’ve lent a supporting or guiding hand.
A few years back, to help a good friend of mine lose sixty pounds in about six months, I researched and wrote a series of short articles about the basics of weight loss, which I’ve included here.
I have also touched upon my own long-term, somewhat radical (some would say), food regimen—Earth Alone. It may seem too simple, but listen, it has worked for going on thirty years and keeps working, so don’t knock it.
Of course, other factors have bearing on a long and healthy life as well. Exercise, nutritional supplements, spiritual outlook. I’ve touched on these as well.
I share this with the wish and hope that it will be of some help.

About the Author
Ulf is a Swedish name that once meant Wolf. So, yes, Wolf Wolf, that’s me. I was born Ulf Ronnquist one snowy night in late October, in one of those northern Swedish towns that are little more than a clearing in the forest. Fast forward through twenty Swedish years, ten or so English ones, and another twenty-four in the US and you’ll find me in front of an immigrations officer conducting the final citizenship interview, at the end of which he asks me, “What name would you like on your passport?” And here I recall what a friend had told me, that you can pick just about any name you want at this point, and I heard me say “Ulf Wolf.” That’s how it happened. Scout’s honor. Of course, I had been using Ulf Wolf as a pen name for some time before this interview, but I hadn’t really planned to adopt that as my official U.S. name. But I did. I have written stories all my life. Initially in Swedish, but for the last twenty or so years in English. To date I have written six novels, four novellas and two scores of stories; along with many songs and poems. My writing focus these days is on life’s important questions (in my view): Who are we? What are we doing here? And how do we break out of this prison?
