‘Whey’ing In: Are Protein Powders Paleo?

This is a story about a guy I know – we’ll call him ‘Magnus’ (he’d like that).  He likes to lift heavy things and has been known to grunt and swear while lifting these heavy things.  When he opens his (massive) gym bag it’s like taking a trip to GNC Read more…

Make the Most of the ‘Off-season’

The last ‘big’ races/events are over for the season – triathlons, cycling, marathons, the Games – all done for another year.  It’s officially the ‘off-season’; the time for our bodies to rest, recover, and start preparing for the next go.  While the ‘off-season’ is commonly associated with athletes, it truly Read more…

Myra’s Story: “You don’t have to be perfect…”

The only thing I can see as a “starting factor” to my eating disorder is that I began taking birth control about the same time and started dealing with depression off and on. I have been battling with bulimia, bingeing and purging, since I was 19. Now, almost 32, I Read more…

Fish Oil

Ahhh…fish oil. A whole industry built around supplying us with something that should be a natural part of our food supply. Prior to the 1970’s meat and dairy in the United states was still grass fed so we received ample amounts of the main constituents of fish oil, EPA and Read more…
