I'm deployed, and I often play sports after crossfit. I Don't have the ability to eat a full meal because it will slow me down on the field. Anyone eat tanka bites after working out for protien? I don't like the idea of a protein shake, I'm... (more)
Hi guys, I need some advice/reassurance just to make me feel a little bit better. I'm in my very early stage of recovering from anorexia (actually more ortorexia + anorexia athletica = speaking human: extreme restriction and exercising three times... (more)
Well what do you think is going on? You're hungry! GO get your macadamia butter and whatever you crave, you don't have to skip your work out if you like it, muscle mass is always a good thing. Good luck!
I have been run down recently due to a change in my working hours which means i have to get up stupidly early Monday-Friday. As a result i've developed shingles at the very top inside thigh. I tried to get more sleep where i could & laid... (more)
Hey guys, I am a gym-rat. Or I was until I recently took up a landscaping job. This isn't powerlift for an hour and go home, it's squatting, kneeling and reaching for weeds and cultivating soil for 9 or more hours a day. It's breaking me. When I... (more)

Im an otherwise healthy 21 year old, athletic male. I broke my fibula and had surgery a couple of days ago. If anyone has any suggestions to ensure that I recover and heal quickly, Please share! Thanks
the foods suggested are good & logical, but fasting can also be a powerful healer, bare it in mind if you have the time to do an extended fast
I spent 4 straight weeks only Paleo - doing amazing! Then, started traveling for work again. What is the best way to get back to the results I was seeing in the shortest timeframe?
Good Morning! Very nervous today ... tomorrow I am having my first ever surgery. I am getting arthroscopic surgery on my right medial meniscus. They are going to be cutting out the torn portion. I know, as surgery goes, mine is pretty tidy and... (more)
Lots of bone broth! Also, if you're up to it, gnaw on the cartilage at the end of chicken bones—lots of collagen. Still, bone broth is my first recommendation. Hope you get back up and moving soon.
Hi all, I'm having trouble with recovery post exercise (ever since a bad injury almost a year ago). Been really cautious about what I eat after, not overdoing it, taking lots of rest. I'm down to 2-3 days of weight training (about 30 minutes of... (more)
(I think I may have jinxed myself answering a question about how fast recovery is when you're paleo lol) Been getting worse by the day, drinking water and resting, would it be that Im doing something wrong?
I recently had a wisdom tooth removed, and since I haven't been doing my usual daily 4-mile runs because I'm worried the pounding might irritate the where the tooth was. Instead of running I've been doing power walking and elliptical trainer, in... (more)
What's more beneficial from a recovery standpoint, factoring in autophagy v. fueling up to promote muscle repair? Coming from my chronic-cardio days, I always ate a lot on rest days with the mindset of 'rebuilding.' These days, if I'm being... (more)
I recently binged on dark chocolate almonds, 85% dark chocolate and chicken because of classwork stress. Now I feel like I swallowed a bowling ball. What is the best way to recover from this binge?
The best way is to forget about it and carry on life as normal. If you fall into the habit of doing excessive exercise after a binge than you set a dangerous precedent where you look to exercise off every binge you may have. Look to see what the... (more)

I really feel your frustration. It's almost painful to want to be out using your body, and yet not be able to do it (I've been there, so I really do know how you are feeling). But, sometimes you just have to take the time to heal, and time is what... (more)
Are carbohydrates absolutely essential when it comes to muscle recovery after a strength training workout? I have recently started a low carb diet,(no starches, fruit, or complex carbs just greens and cruciferous vegies/capsicums); got over the... (more)
It's always hilarious to wrap an ems band around a someone's arm, put it up to maximum power, and then shock them into punching themselves in the face. If you bleed enough, then it's great for depleting your iron levels.
I've noticed that after heavy lifting, my appetite skyrockets. For instance, yesterday afternoon I did a heavy combination of deadlifts, chin ups and rows. I PRed on my deadlift, which I was very happy about, and, being hungry anyway, ate as soon... (more)
Using D-Ribose for performance and recovery is like what my morning cup of coffee does to jumpstart my day. When I use just a bit before and after my workouts, I really feel a noticeable difference with energy and recovery. It is a supplement... (more)

Two workouts. Same result. I'm hydrating well, but suspect this is related to diet. I'm not typically hungry in the morning so don't like to eat until I am. But somethig's got to give. What's the best breakfast routine to follow with morning... (more)

Could you bring it to your workplace and share it with co-workers? If you have an office desk, you could place it out and people could just grab some of it when they stop by. Or if you have a break room, you could bring it there.
