I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.

Just a simple question/poll. Do you prefer a bodyweight-exercise program, like MovNat, or a barbell-training program, like Starting Strength or Stronglifts? Or, do you mix both? What are your programs like?
