What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway?

      No Comments on What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway?

The Paleo Identity Crisis: What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway? http://www.gnolls.org/2226/the-paleo-identity-crisis-what-is-the-paleo-diet-anyway/ We call it “paleo” for the same reason that we call it “Latin”, even though we have absolutely no idea how it was spoken. Just as Latin scholars attempt to maintain something syntactically analogous to written Latin, paleo dieters attempt to maintain something nutritionally analogous to an ancestral human… Read more »

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Apologies for the erratic track on the map, but the technology was not playing well today. Will try harder tomorrow. Sometimes things don’t turn out how you plan, but are wonderful anyway. I was expecting to see the Bretton scenery over the last couple of days, but the trees lining the route have… Read more »

Quick Paleo and Fitness Update – 90 days

      No Comments on Quick Paleo and Fitness Update – 90 days

Just wanted to quickly update on the fitness progress.  The Paleo diet has been going well, I’ve hacked it around a bit to see what effects can be had and for me at least, sticking to the core principles is whats needed.  The lack of wheat in the diet has made a huge difference to my eczema.  I deliberately ate… Read more »

Intermittent fasting as a form of liberation

      No Comments on Intermittent fasting as a form of liberation

http://healthcorrelator.blogspot.com/2010/05/intermittent-fasting-as-form-of.html Perhaps adult hunter-gatherers are more like physically active children than adults in modern urban societies. Maybe this is one of the reasons why adult hunter-gatherers have much less body fat. Take a look at the photo below [taken] from Wikipedia. It was reportedly taken in 1939, and shows three Australian aboriginals. The Paleo Diet is great. Eat well all… Read more »

Back from Hols, But No Time to Write

      No Comments on Back from Hols, But No Time to Write

Ok, so we got back from holidays on Friday evening, but I’ve barely had a chance to write anything. Too much socialising, and off we go again! The big post-holiday news is that Paleo + exercise does the trick. I’ve lost 12 pounds in 6 weeks and as a result have hit my target weight of 12 stones (76 kg)…. Read more »

Functional Exercise and Natural Movement | Naturally Engineered http://naturallyengineered.com/blog/functional-exercise-and-natural-movement/ This is an interesting article, and pertinent to my current workout routine. I’ve been using bodyweight and isometric exercises for the last month, as being away from home means that I’ve not had access to a gym. Gym exercises certainly have their value, and what the above article misses is that… Read more »

Final Day – Walking at St. Gervais

      No Comments on Final Day – Walking at St. Gervais

Videos below! Final day in St. Gervais, and against forecast it was clear and sunny when we got up, so decided to have a last day on the slopes, but again with the snow shoes. I was fairly keen to make an assault on Mt. Joly, the highest peak in the immediate area. So we set off about 11:30 from… Read more »

Oh What Lazy Buggers We Are!

      No Comments on Oh What Lazy Buggers We Are!

I don’t know, 5 days we’ve been here and so far only managed 2 afternoons of skiing! Actually I don’t feel bad about it, it’s still a nice break. I blame the snow quality above all else, it’s just not much fun when it’s like it is. Yesterday and today have been cloudy, and again, skiing is less fun in… Read more »
