I am not using this to promote myself at all, but I am a personal trainer with over a decade of expierence and I have found through all of the fad diets, get lean/fit quick schemes, supplements, etc. that there is one truth, there is no substitute or replacement for a proper diet. Clean up your eating, tweak it as your fitness level/goals dictate, and the rest will work it's self out! In my opinion, and I can not stress that enough, Optimal living is 80% diet and 20% fitness. Remember the old adage, " you can't out train a poor diet", this in my opinion is 100% true! My 2 cents.

And for all but the last several thousand of those millions of years, our species regularly went long periods of time without food, interspersed with times of red meat gorging.
Early humans were HUNTER GATHERERS. Just because they didnt have red meat to eat, didnt mean they didnt eat anything.

I dont know much about fasting first hand, but I do know that the several doctors I have asked about it said not to do it. At very least CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR before trying this.

Go vegan! Meat rotting in your colon at 98.6 degrees for a day or two doesn't sound like a good way to detoxify to me. I've never felt better since switching my diet to not only vegan but nutrient dense, simple foods. People scoff at the thought of giving up animal products but it's been like magic for me.

My great-grandma lived on cabbage, potatoes, vodka, and tobacco. Makes me think twice about paleo.


I keep hearing how great cabbage is for IBS so I went to KFC and bought some cole slaw. Nothing happened.
Then at Costco I bought a huge box of fried Ling Ling Cabbage Rolls. No change either.
I guess I'll move on to eating potatoes. Of course they'll be fried from Mcd's. I'll let you know how that goes. :lol:

I was just reading Scott Jurek's new book, Eat and Run and in it he talks about his choice to go Vegan. One of his reasons for not eating eggs was because he felt eggs are created in cruel envioronments. But what if those eggs are organic and come from pasture raised chickens? No mistreatment whatsoever. They live like kings. Would that allow for an exception to the rule? I can see going Vegan but I can't understand the egg part of it. Anyone?

I ate a vegetable once, not really for me.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

What exactly were you doing with the meat?

In an effort to lose my recently gained injury weight, I elected to try the new squirrel diet fad. I started it this morning. While I know I'm not a small rodent, someone called me squirrelly once, and I really admire the squirrel for its tree-climbing ability.

Breakfast: 5 acorns, raw
Morning snack: 1 pinecone, raw
Lunch: 10 pine nuts, previously digested and excreted in bird feces
Afternoon snack: 3 mushrooms, of any variety
Dinner: Green vegetation, raw
Dessert: 2 walnuts, boiled in my own tears (I know, I know, but I was feeling like I deserved a treat!)

I find that copious quantities of tequila and green chile is very effective. I might feel like crap for a couple of days after the treatment, but then I feel great!

+1 ... =D> :detonate: :wft: :-"
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM
