So I have seen a couple of these on this website and I thought id ask your input on a routine that I just came up with. I am basing it a little bit off of stronglifts. I plan on starting this soon, but I'm not very experienced with these lifts so... (more)

Personally, I can't imagine I will. But that seems so bizarre! Currently I eat bacon 3-4 times a week (140g/time). Mostly for breakfast. I truly can say that I doubt I'll ever get tired of it! What is your Go To Paleo Food that you could eat day... (more)

I'm a big fan of Mark Sisson's approach to exercise (see below). I think it's a really "less is more" kind of thing. You need to be active in general (as much low and slow as you can do), but what you have to do specifically as "exercise" is a lot... (more)

Maybe, especially since you seem to be using your body a lot, having a starch a few times a week would be a good idea. Mashed sweet potatoes are awesome... I'm also wondering, based on your description of your diet, whether or not you're getting... (more)
