No sweat reduction but, Definitely no Smell. The smell is caused by bacteria and the acv kills the bacteria and keeps it away all day, even on work~out days. ;-)

Does this reduce sweating/odour? Also, good idea.

Do you notice any increase in speed due to the lower weight and therefore more advantageous power-to-weight ratio?

The vase method also works for herbs and rhubarb. Rhubarb is really pretty in a short vase.

I'm also a fidgeter. I drink a lot of water while I'm working, which requires me frequent breaks to "the little programmer's room". I like to think that the frequent bouts of moving help alleviate some of the problems associated with sitting at the computer all day.

Maybe it's not specifically Paleo-related, but it is diet/health related and it's a hell of a lot better than the usual "Is [insert processed food here] Paleo?" and getting butthurt when anyone says it's not and offers suggestions on Paleo-friendly replacements.

Yeah, I learned it from my local hippy convenience store. (It's a convenience store that is truly convenient: local organic produce, eggs, chocolate, and other assorted food and bath items.) This method keeps them fresher than in the fridge, as long as the apartment doesn't get too hot. I try to place them near a window, but they don't seem to care. It works better if you replace the water every night. And, yeah, they do look pretty!

I think a lot of things I do are considered unusual to most people, but maybe not unusual to other paleo folks.

I irrigate my sinuses with a neti pot of saline solution when I'm suffering from allergies.

I bathe with baking soda instead of soap or shampoo. I rinse my hair with apple cider vinegar.

I make my own toothpaste (from calcium powder, baking soda, coconut oil, Dr Bronner's soap, and xylitol) and deodorant (using coconut oil, cornstarch, and essential oil).

I store my leafy green veggies in a vase of water on the counter rather than in the fridge.

I squat to poo (well, I put my feet up on the seat, which has the same effect).

I try to eat liver or oysters at least once a week.

I buy whole fish so I can make broth from their heads and bones. Last week I even ate some livers and roe from my fish. I don't notice a difference in health, but I figure it is probably good.

I guess it's a quirk: I'm a fidgeter. Like, I just cannot sit still. If I try to watch TV or something, it is pretty much impossible for me to make it through even a 30 minute show. I imagine I burn a good bit of calories with my constant low-level movement and that is how I have always had a good consistent weight (aside from obvious health factors that affected it) even when I ate SAD food and hardly worked out.

My diet consists of dark chocolate (high percentage, sometimes with nuts n fruits), meat and minimal veggies. I get most of my fiber and sugar from dark chocolate. I have been doing this for a little while now. It will probably change. Again.
