Is the Paleo Diet, just like Atkins or any other low carb diet?
Paleo does not necesseraly have to be like Atkins. Atkins (if i understand correctly) was a high-fat, High-protein, low carb diet, but with Paleo you can make it as high or low carb as you want. Also, with Atkins, you can have artificial colors... (more)

You lost 5-6 pounds without exercise and no tracking calories? That's pretty good. Get some simple walking in if you're not already, and keep it up. You're doing good.
Hey guys, so I am in need of dire help. I am a person who does crossfit most of the week, and if I get too sore, I take a break. I have been doing this for a couple years. I eat healthy but claim that I'm not 100% perfect on doing Paleo (I rarely... (more)

I was told as part of a "triple-drug therapy" for H. Pylori overgrowth that I would need to take proton-pump inhibitors in addition to a few antibiotics + Igg. I didn't want to say no, but I'm pretty sure those inhibitors caused H. Pylori in the... (more)

I use cardamom when I brew coffee, probably once a week. (The rest of the time I just brew it black.) My mother used to do that when I was younger, as did my grandmother on occasion. It reminds me of them (and tastes amazing).
So maybe it's because the games are coming up or because I've noticed more of them at my gym, but some of these guys are huge and it doesn't make sense to me. Granted, there are a lot of "average" sized men and women doing CrossFit but some of... (more)
