Paleofication: Just Because The Label Says Paleo Doesn’t Mean It’s Healthy…

“All Right folks, hang on to your britches.  It’s been a while since I’ve gone on an epic rant about a food related topic, but it’s about to go down. I’m not changing my overall philosophy and still believe that there are no EVIL foods, BUT there are a few things that need to be talked about – so brace yourself, this is may hurt.

In our happy little Paleo world we like to ridicule and point out the major flaws of the whole low-fat and fat-free craze that went down in the 90’s and early 2000’s – and there’s definitely merit to our arguments. Fat free cheese, muffins, ice cream, salad dressings, margarines; reduced fat peanut butter; Snackwell’s cookies (although the devil’s food ones were pretty damn tasty…); Lean Cuisine; pretzels and even fat free candies like jelly beans and licorice got the green light while nuts, avocado, olives and most meats were blacklisted. Food manufacturer’s made LOTS of money and America got fatter. While we ate up all these seemingly healthy processed foods we neglected NATURALLY low fat and fat free fare – you know- vegetables, fruit, lean meats… So, basically what we did was trade REAL FOOD for packaged, processed, sugar heavy, unsatisfying junk all because we were being told it was good for us AND we could eat as we wanted and not get fat. BONUS!!! Well, that ended up not working out real great in the end, right? We moved AWAY from real food to stuff that tasted good and that was quick and convenient (because grabbing a bag of frozen veggies and a can of tuna was WAY too much work…).”

Crossfit nutrition díl 1.

Ke crossfitu mě vlastně přivedla Paleo dieta ( http://goo.gl/DE4vvx ). Hledal jsem co jíst a nejíst, abych se cítil dobře, podpořil svoje fitness cíle a samozřejmě vypadal dobře bez trička. V tomhle směru jsem prostě normální ješitnej chlap. Narazil jsem na Paleo dietu a zjistil, že naše tělo se dlouhou dobu vyvíjelo v podmínkách, kdy jsme si potravu buď lovili anebo sbírali. Takže jednoduše Paleo dieta je o tom, že jíme potraviny, které jsou nám přirozené. Tedy to, co lze někde sebrat a ulovit. Zemědělství je něco, co známe přibližně 10 000 let a to je z evolučního hlediska extrémě krátká doba. Proto naše tělo na mnoho zemědělsky vyšlechtěných plodin nereaguje moc dobře. Při vyřazení těchto plodin na alespoň 30 dní pocítí člověk obrovský rozdíl. Skvěle o tom píší Dallas a Melissa Hartwigovi ve své knize Jídlo na prvním místě ( http://www.melvil.cz/kniha-jidlo-na-prvnim-miste/). A nebo moje nejoblíbenější kniha o Paleo dietě je od Marka Sissona Primal Blueprint ( http://bluevision.cz/primal-blueprint/ ).

How Does CrossFit Endurance Help Train Runners?

 

Adapted from the new book Unbreakable Runner by Brian MacKenzie and T.J. Murphy. Learn more at unbreakablerunner.com.

Most long-distance training plans adopt the standard Lydiard-based training model, which has high mileage as its cornerstone—the more miles, the better. There’s no disputing that Lydiard developed a pathway for success, which he described in detail in his book, . But is the high-mileage model the only way to the top? Or the healthiest?

Lydiard argued vehemently that it was, but not everyone agrees. For some, the risk of injury is not worth the benefits that high mileage bestows. For these runners, it makes more sense to make every step count than to take as many steps as possible.

‘Text neck’ is becoming an ‘epidemic’ and could wreck your spine


(Courtesy of Dr. Ken Hansraj M.D.)

The human head weighs about a dozen pounds. But as the neck bends forward and down, the weight on the cervical spine begins to increase. At a 15-degree angle, this weight is about 27 pounds, at 30 degrees it’s 40 pounds, at 45 degrees it’s 49 pounds, and at 60 degrees it’s 60 pounds.
