I'm hesitant to even TRY asking this here because of the amount of self proclaimed experts and anecdotal "proof" people espouse... so please, keep it factual, and cite your sources if you can. I'm new to sports. I've been a healthy eater forever,... (more)
I've started to eat mostly paleo now, because it makes me feel great (the only non-paleo things I eat moderately are rice and peanut butter) but I'm a bit disappointed, because I thought when I cut gluten, processed food and crappy vegetable oils... (more)

I know that somewhat traditionally people tend to eat lots of starches and carbs to fill glycogen stores (like the carbo loads the night before highschool football games), but this seems more difficult from a Paleo perspective. I have a Crossfit... (more)
I don't have time to do the in depth answer I would love to do, but I wanted to get you at least somewhere to start. First of all, if this event is coming up soon, like in the next 2 weeks, I wouldn't change anything you are currently doing. You... (more)
Im seeing more and more MMA fighters adopt vegetarianism and it got me to thinking that we almost never hear about a professional athlete contribute part of their success to Paleo. Shane Carwin is a beast of a man and just went... (more)
Rumor has it (from the man himself) that Charles Barkley has been signed up for CrossFit. I admit that I'm kinda excited about this because at our house we have a soft spot for him. :) On one hand he could be back to fighting form fairly quickly... (more)
I started running barefoot and in my vibrams last summer. I didn't play sports much - just tennis a few times. It was very weird playing barefoot and in my vibrams although If i did it over and over again I may have gotten used to it. What do you... (more)
I agree with Vivienne that water is best, but plain filtered water such as from a bottle or tap is not. The water of our evolutionary ancestors would've been loaded with minerals and electrolytes. When participating in sports and sweating heavily,... (more)
Ok this is a very weird question that came to my mind yesterday. I was thinking back to my journey regarding nutrition and sports that started 8 years ago. Back then I became a bodybuilding fan and started to implement a bodybuilder-like diet and... (more)

Sweet potato, banana, dates, raisins. All good source of carbs/energy. Sweet potato should be eaten at least an hour before, others can be more of a "quick snack right before" thing (depending on your timing)

This superbowl thang got me thinkin' about the whole idea of being a spectator. Americans(I'm sure others as well) are really into WATCHING other people play hard...for some, this is a favorite form of entertainment. We get extremely attached to... (more)
