A friend and I were having a conversation about exercise/crossfit and paleo diets. I was saying that I have been a slacker in the exercise world for a while until recently but enjoying paleo food. She was wondering if people who have desk jobs and... (more)
I have been studying nutrition on my own for quite sometime and my philosophy and habits are pretty much in line with the "paleo diet". I am a college age girl and do my own mix with surge training,yoga, and weight lifting, but nothing extreme or... (more)
I'm 50 years old, male. Once a week I do a Doug McGuff BBS style weight session lifting heavy things and once a week I do an HIIT session on an exercise bike. Warm-up, 30 seconds sprint, 4 mins recovery x4. It takes around 30 mins. I practice... (more)
I race mountain bikes, and I took time off because I wasn't getting anywhere, I was gaining weight (somehow) and I wasn't enjoying it. I'm 14 and I felt like an old woman. So I've been off the bike for 3 weeks now. It's not a long time at all,... (more)
I have been doing weight training for six months now, and have significantly improved on my push ups, sit ups, squats, etc. but I still can't get one dang pull up! I have worked on pull-downs, assisted pull-ups, negatives, mixed grip, you name... (more)
I have a sort of complex multi-faceted question and I'm not even sure where to begin, so I'll give you my background first. I started Crossfit this past February and was immediately hooked. Begin eating paleo shortly after and was about 80/20. ... (more)
I've been trying to hone in my diet based on three goals: 1) Optimum physical and mental performance 2) Metabolic flexibility/ability to perform without eating frequently and/or obsession about macros 3) Lose a bit of weight. I've also been... (more)
I've been Paleo for a few weeks now but with a few wobbles when I ate non-paleo things. Initially I was making good progress and my sleep had reglated really well so I was waking early enabling me to go for morning workouts. The past week and a... (more)
I have a problem with sugar/carb binges that starts with one small cheat, maybe a cookie or ice cream...and results in me eating any sugary carby item i can get my hands on until my stomach hurts. Its almost as if i punish myself for cheating and... (more)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/19433800/ As we know, exercise increases insulin sensitivity. This study says vitamin C and antioxidants negate that effect. Apparently it shuts down the benefits of autophagy... (more)
I found this New York Times article to be interesting. The article, Debunking the Hunter-Gatherer Workout, has this to say about the "Hadza people of Tanzania, one of the few remaining populations of traditional hunter-gatherers": The Hadza live... (more)
Hello. I'm a recent college grad on a shoestring budget. What little money I have I devote to food and I've been on the Paleo track since May (about 4 months now) and I've been impressed with the results. I have grass fed where I can, and I'm not... (more)
Log time guys. Hope your well? I was wondering what is everyone favourite or most effective pre workout meal before they train? I usually stick to chicken breast and fruit. But just looking at what everyone else has? Thanks Neal I do 2 sessions a... (more)
Okay, so I am following a low carb paleo diet. And I recently had some heart rate issues, that turned out to in fact be hyperthyroid in nature. So far as that is concerned, I am waiting six weeks with reduced iodine in my diet (was high, lots... (more)
Hi there folks. The name's Cricket, and I'm new to the Paleo community, started in roughly April this year while I was over in Los Angeles, and like most people I'm aiming to lose weight and become healthier in the process. SO, I'm pretty much... (more)
On what grounds are people voting to close this thread? How does it violate any paleohacks rules?
I read on a post recently where someone was suggesting to rest or don't do physical activity during IF. My personal take is I feel just fine doing any level of activity. I regularly do long hikes the day of an IF, having eaten the night before... (more)
So, I started doing squats (no weight, just my own body weight) and I am surprised at how weak I am. I can do about three sets of 6-8 before I feel weak and my legs are shaking for the rest of the night. How long should I wait before I do... (more)
Does anyone else use a Garmin Forerunner with Firstbeat heartrate Technology to measure calorie expenditure? Or any other HRM to measure their workouts? If so what kind of numbers are you showing for HIIT training, Crossfit, etc?
Hello there! Just turned 20 and I'm back home this summer from college. I'm slowly (with a lot of road bumps), integrating Paleo into my lifestyle. This is something I want to do my health, not just for weight loss. So I'm also trying to find a... (more)
I think your job as a waitress would cover most of your needs, assuming you were busy and not sitting around, it's a lot of movement and carrying stuff around. I'd probably still try and lift heavy weights once or twice a week if possible.
Howdy folks: I'm a 9-5er and wanted to get other ideas on ways to keep active in an office environment. Here's a few of mine: Run to the top floor of your building each time you're coming back up the stairs (easier for some) Inclined pushups... (more)
I walk to a different bathroom in the building every time I have to go. I pee in the first, fix my tie in the second, and get a sip from the water fountain by the third. I drink a lot of water so I this pretty often throughout the day.
So I know this lady. I just learned that her hands shake after working out. It does not matter what she does either. Yoga, cardio, weights... anything. Do you have any idea what may be causing this? I thought about a possible sensitivity to... (more)
Hey guys, I've lost around 7Kg in 7 weeks just on diet alone. I'm really looking at improving those numbers and I know I need to add exercise. I don't have the funds to pay for a gym membership or a personal trainer but I have seen some of... (more)
