About Andy Beans

I said before, my name's Andy and this is my site; Beans is not my real surname obviously.  I know you're all dying to know more, so before you start pouring through Facebook for me I'll be giving you some more information as time goes on (have to maintain my enigmatic, Man of Mystery status, ha).

In the meantime please have a look at my blog, sign the guestbook or give me a shout through my contact page if you want to know more.

I've also got a Facebook Page if you'd like to pop by, all 'likes' are greatly appreciated!

Disclaimers

Music

All of the music I produce is my own work. I use customised instruments and rarely uses samples from other artists unless I am sure of my rights to reproduce those samples or they have been sufficiently altered to prevent plagiarism and dissociate the use with the original works.  I am always keen to hear views from other producers and to talk to rights holders to ensure that I stay the right side of any copyright claim.

The music I mix is rarely my own (I don't beat my own drum THAT much), but I only publish mixes of other peoples work on platforms which allow me to properly list the works played and which work with rights holders to ensure they are properly rewarded for those works.  At the moment I use Mixcloud.

Health and Fitness

I am not a personal trainer nor am I a dietician or nutritionist.  The information I have provided does not constitute formal advice; it is simply my account of how I keep fit and healthy and why I think it works for me.  If you disagree with what I have written then I am open to discussing it, but if your sole aim is to denigrate my chosen lifestyle then I would prefer you take your crusade to another forum.

I am willing to provide my insight/experience upon request, just as I encourage open, positive views from others following similar diets and training regimes.  However this should not be taken as advice and if you have any doubts as to the safety of the lifestyle I follow, or concerns about your ability to perform any of the techiques described in a safe manner or about how it will effect any preexisting medical condition, then I recommend you seek proper medical/physiological advice in the first instance.

However, I guarantee that that advice will be to avoid HIT and ketogenic dieting.  The medical profession is guided solely by research by the food industry, who want to keep selling you cheap-to-manufacture cereals and processed sugars, and supported by the fitness industry who want to sell you gym memberships and personal training contracts.  There is another way, I follow it and you are welcome to take it or leave it.
