Paleo beyond Food

Paleo seems to be the hottest buzz word these days. Not only are we digging into our ancestral recipe books for new food ideas but we are also going into their shoe boxes and to our surprise they are EMPTY. New research is contradicting the theory that more shoe support is better; instead they are presenting theories that our cavemen ancestors were a healthier bunch than our modern day man due in part to their simple lifestyles, clean wholesome foods, and lack of thick comfy shoes. Sans shoes actually make your feet stronger and maintains proper walking/running form. This wordContinue Reading >>

Silent Killer: Hypertension

  If you have ever gone to the doctor for a checkup or walked into a pharmacy you may have found your arm in a cuff experiencing a slow compression, release, and perhaps a blank look on your nurses face.

MNT has been an area of interest to me for years especially because of its role in Diabetes Management. We (the collective society) have finally realized that Medicine, Lifestyle and Health areContinue Reading >>

New age food logging

The one thing I admire about crossfitters is their dedication. They come into the cell time after time and take a beating or two from a chipper or Kelly or Fran or some other wod on crack and then they write it down as evidence! Why? Because journals help you measure performance… you don’t see and know how far you have come along unless you remember where you started and what better proof than to see it written down. The same rules apply when it comes to your nutrition. In order to make serious changes to your nutrition lifestyle youContinue Reading >>
