Re: Carnivore diet post re: Dr Shawn Baker's bloodwork

Are there any well researched benefits to a ketogenic, actual blood markers that have moved in a positive direction, disease reversal, etc? I know tons of people are having good results with weight loss with the diet, but is that simply due to it being a diets that eliminates most people's trigger f...

And even funnier, when he was on Rogan's podcast Joe was slobbering all over his balls in agreement (as usual). Then Rich Roll will be on Rogan's podcast and he'll be in complete agreement with the plant based diet for athletes.

Re: Carnivore diet post re: Dr Shawn Baker's bloodwork

This made the rounds on the plant based blogs and youtube channels a while ago. They were hitting him pretty hard on his T and serum protein numbers. Typical of this type of debate, Baker ended up getting into pissing contests with all sorts of people who questioned his blood work. He came off as a ...

Re: Might have broken my hand...

So... I broke the tip off the Hook of Hamate. Pretty much what she suspected. Since it's been 2 months and the bone hasn't healed, she said surgery is probably the best way to go. A Guyon's Canal release is the procedure, with removal of the broken tip of the Hamate hook, then grind the remainder sm...

Hey Fats, thanks for checking in. I had to go to sort of a chain orthopedic place here since they were the only ones that could get me in last week.

Re: 2019 Goals?

I have several process goals for the year, but no real performance goals since I've been dealing with a few injuries. 1: Run healthy for the entire year.

Re: Dropping like flies

Thanks nafod.
I'm the oldest on my side and was an early baby, so all of my aunts and uncles are only 18-20 years older than me. My wife was a late life accident, so her parent's generation is 10 years older than on my side.

On the wife's side of the family.
Her uncle passed late last week, and found out her aunt went a couple days later. Have funerals Saturday and Sunday to attend.
Getting older blows as you watch those who of the previous generation go.......

Re: Pavhole's new book is out today

I've been doing swings and push-ups as a quicky workout for at least a decade or more. Not sure how you could milk a whole page out of that, much less a book. Next will be swings to a comfortable stop followed by a quick recovery jog down the block and back, repeat for 20-30 minutes. Another of my f...

Completely agree about population.

There seems to be very little understanding that we exist as one tiny part of a vast...

I've used 10% Happier and Headspace. Both of those are good, with Headspace being a little better IMO. I don't like that 10% has various teachers leading meditations, but some people like the variety of styles. I'm better when I follow a single teacher.

Lol....
Don't consider him a "real" part of the IDW, but most of the IDW has been on his show multiple times. And in true Rogan fashion, he agrees with everything they say even when it directly contradicts something he agreed with another guest on just a day before.

Re: Row off the Holiday pudge

Team is definitely in for the World Erg Challenge. If you're on the team just confirm on your page that you're in and it should log your meters to the challenge.

I could only do the Valentine challenge last month. Not military and I don't have a Skierg. I bet the 10k was a mental challenge.
