Cut out the dried fruit, cookies, chocolate chips, and apples. Get a copy of Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe and follow his program instead of the one you are using now. It doesn't matter how much you have lifted weights in the past. For now... (more)

Download OpenOffice or LibreOffice. There's an Excel compatible spreadsheet program that should be able to open whatever spreadsheet you're trying to use. You could also try to re-download the spreadsheet, maybe it got broken.

Are you combining your lifting with an intermittent fast? You might try that if you want to avoid cardio. However, sprints, hills and bleachers are not the same as running and walking. Interval training is a form of high intensity training (or is... (more)

If you're really eating paleo you should be getting plenty of protein from meat, fish, eggs, etc. and you really don't need to supplement. 80-120 grams of protein, for most people, is more than enough and if you're eating a protein/fat based diet... (more)
