No Carbs, No Energy? Wrong.

Here’s a nice Dorsey Kindler article in Men’s Journal: “Paleo’s Latest Converts.” Mr. Kindler points to three endurance athletes who have become paleo and have drastically improved performance and/or lengthened their careers: a professional cyclist, an ultramarathon runner, and a triathlete.

So many players, so many paleos. CBS Sports has published a fantastic article on NBA players who have gone paleo to retard the aging process, heal up after injuries, and kick sugar addictions. Ray Allen of the Miami Heat had become entirely dependent upon anti-inflammatory meds to keep him going until he went paleo. I stamped [...]

Kobe Bryant Turns Federal Food Pyramid Upside Down

Saturday, February 9, 2013 7:32 1 Comment
