Debunking the Paleo Diet?

April 16, 2013 Leave a comment

If you have not seen this new TED talk I am sure you have heard of it. There is much wrong with it and some really good stuff. In my opinion the title is just for bringing in an audience and not proved in any way in her presentation. Please watch THE WHOLE THING and then read the post by Robb Wolf.

RED MEAT and CARNITINE

April 16, 2013 Leave a comment

Want a reason to understand much of what we are told about health is total BS and much of the research is BS not real science? Here ya go! The headline RED MEAT KILLS AGAIN hit the scene last week and now that the dust has settled we can see the reality of the situation.

See the article HERE

See the full journal study in Nature Medicine

What does this mean? They are saying when red meat is digested the bacteria in our gut produce TMAO which promote heart disease.

What you need to know is below. Please read about how and why the above headline is BS and you don’t need to worry.

Mummies and Heart Disease!

March 13, 2013 Leave a comment

You may have seen the Headline that distorts a study about mummies and health.

See it HERE

Basically, the tone is this – mummies had heart disease so the “paleo” diet or any diet that simulates our ancestors will also lead you to heart disease.

  • The mummies are only 4000 years old.
  • They ate grains and lots of carbs – look at the study
  • Many other lifestyle factors play a role.
  • None of them ate the diet we prescribe here.
  • Atherosclerosis does not always lead to these diseases.

The STUDY IS RIGHT HERE for free in the Lancet. If you read through it you will simply see how awful the media is at reporting science or any skeptical theme.

Please look at Melissa‘s blog, HUNT GATHER LOVE, for much more detail. She does a great job

And that atherosclerosis is a complex condition that does not always lead to disease. In studies of forager-horticulturalists like the Kitavans (who smoke like chimneys, though cigarettes are probably less unhealthy that arctic cooking fires, which produce coal-miner-like lungs) it has simply been assumed they did not have high rates of atherosclerosis because they did not have high levels of diseases associated with the condition, but in reality this might not be the case because atherosclerosis does not always lead to these diseases…But if anything, this study shows the need to not assume atherosclerosis is low just because disease is low. Since there are few relevant studies even on different Western dieters, it’s hard to say if there exists a diet that can possibly prevent this condition.

Animals To Rescue our Grasslands

This is astonishing and yet simple. We need animals to keep the life in our soil and grasses. Keeping them as slaves in one area, as out current agriculture practices, is harmful to them, us, and our land. No one wins.

Women of Crossfit

February 21, 2013 Leave a comment

Strength is Beauty! Frail skinny fat women are not the new-cool. A real man wants a strong confident woman. If you are competitive, want to tone and loose body fat, and level up your confidence crossfit may be for you. Check out your local gyms and find the one that fits you. Cannon Crossfit.

If some of these women look “too buff” that’s fine – they will be doing more than you should be doing. For you, just stick to the basics. If your body type is naturally very lean then you NEED to do weight training and tone up. It’s about doing it smart.

Women can do everything men can.

Fact.

Swim Coaches and Life Guards

February 20, 2013 Leave a comment

This is a great analogy from Coach Greg Glassman, founder of Crossfit

Physicians are life guards. Trainers are swim coaches. When you need a life guard you need a life guard, not a swim coach. But if you need a life guard you probably needed a swim coach and didn’t get one.”

Easy to understand. We shouldn’t be relying on a doctor to give us pills. Throw your pills away and change your life.

If you are looking for a trainer that does more than just tell you what exercises to do, and focuses on your whole lifestyle and helps you, all the while practicing what he preaches look into Cannon Crossfit.
