I can't guarantee the accuracy, overtraining (or at least overreaching) is a progressive condition and likely different with different people. By the time you're actually overtrained it's too late really. I'd expect it to be due to a complex... (more)

Couldn't one game the test by doing a pronounced, ie. 24-48 hrs, fast prior to the blood draw? I'd think any Paleo-er worth their salt should be able to swing a 48 hr fast, especially if a few hundred dollars are at stake.
