In general, I think the online Paleo community is too hard on The New Evolution Diet. I experienced bafflement at a few things, and they are all on this list at Melissa McEwen’s site. In particular, throwing out egg yolks is, I think, ludicrous. Choline is a critical nutrient, and it’s all [...]
I’m currently reading Art DeVany’s new book (The New Evolution Diet) – only the Kindle version is out at the moment.
His basic rules for eating are much more tight with the fat than what I know a lot of Primal/Paleo types eat. I have to say that, to be honest, I cannot free-eat Paleo [...]
I have to say that “The Bear Complex” sounds like something a gay male friend would say he has. Come on, I know at least one of you thought that when you saw the title!

Instead of going to Vermont and doing new mileage up there, I decided to clean up some [...]
I’ve been doing CrossFit for a while now. In fact, I completed a Level 1 Certification Seminar this weekend. The only reason I don’t know if I passed the exam is because they had a large (and frankly inexcusable) IT failure, and we have to wait for our results from HQ. Yes, [...]
After spending the afternoon at the St. Louis City Museum, I’m starting to think fun exercise is something I need fit in every week.
The grind that occurs at the gym is a big reason why I don’t go to one.
I don’t really do any exercise I don’t enjoy. If I don’t like it, I [...]
