Crossfit does not add muscle to most men the way it does women (the difference I believe is hormonal), if you want to add muscle consider working out like a bodybuilder. Two of my good friends are ranked top 10 for the upcoming CF games and both... (more)

I believe you should cook potatoes. I cook my veggies, except for when I am eating a salad, because I digest them better that way.

I'd ditch the multivitamin. Can't give you a great reason but I have a hunch we're probably better off without those type of supplements.

Organic greens (spinach, kale, salad greens, etc.), liver, grassfed butter, bone broth, meat, wild caught fish - especially salmon. Good quality extra virgin olive oil, red palm oil. What's not paleo: spam!

How hard was it for grok to get into a coconut? Should we treat coconut meat/butter similar to that of other nuts? The challenge of harvesting the edible portion is so great but worth the nutritional density.

Is it possible to overdose on thiamine supplements, or does it have any other negative effects like folate? I take a 100mg tablet every day, I try to get what i can from food. I also take folate, but in the metafolin form.
