I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.
Hello all! I wanted to ask your advice on my situation. I have been adhering to a rather strict form of Paleo for the past 9 weeks. I have had no dairy and no grains in this period of time. My diet mainly consists of meat (steaks, chicken, and... (more)

Does anyone do Les Mills Bodypump? I read on here some folks bag it and say it's not like crossfit or heavy lifting, but it's not a fair comparison. I've been doing it for a few years and really enjoy it. I love the trainers and class atmosphere.... (more)
has anyone ever switched from low carb to high carb after having amazing results with low carb? in other words has anyone perhaps had an issue where they had to go low carb (ex. insulin resistance, carbohydrate intolerance, etc) then, through... (more)

Evening all, I've been having some pretty worrying knee problems since a rugby tournament 7 weeks ago. Being the idiot that I am (and also not speaking too much of the local language), I've neglected to see a doctor until now. I'm relatively... (more)

This might be a weird question but since I started sprinting my right food has been having these waves of heat. It's not painful just a strange feeling. It's usually occurring while I'm sitting at my desk. It also feels as though I need to "pop"... (more)
Thanks for all the answers. I actually found out I have a pinched nerve in my foot. Basically I need to chill out for a bit on the sprinting until I can figure out how to fix this.
A little background: I was more or less obese when I was child because I ate a lot of crap and didn't almost move from the sofa. Then at 22 I started doing fitness/endurance running and improved a lot, but always struggled to get 'ripped to the... (more)

I get the impression that most people here are running or weightlifting or crossfittin' it up almost every day. I miss being able to do that, but for the past 5 years a varied collection of undiagnosable joint problems has severely limited my... (more)
