Yes, she is fat. This is not an opinion, it's a fact. Search Google Images for yourself.Of course, that doesn't make her a bad person. But, she is grossly overweight.

Hey everyone, As I mentioned in my previous post I haven't been able to run lately due to shin splints (upping my mileage too quickly - not an issue with my shoes, gait or footfall) and I've been without a good run in two weeks. I've been running... (more)

I find a lot of paleo is use dogma and fear mongering. Grains/carbs are not the evil they are made out to be. Any food becomes evil when you abuse it. Hence, if you look at Sisson, he used to pound grains WAY in excess all day long- so now he... (more)

I think Rippetoe's youtube videos are highly informative, but I'm not sure doing squats 3 days a week is a great idea for everyone. Particularly if they're under eating.

Do you drink cream? Saute your meals with heaps of butter? Eat tons of starch? Two pounds of meat a day? Maintaining my weight is starting to become a hassle. How do you guys do it?
