What I found was a lot of already fit people selling a lot of snake-oil remedies, expensive ‘clinically proven’ products and mystery supplements.
Digging a little deeper you can also find the various lawsuits following all of those products. From having zero effect on your health, to having a dangerous, sometimes deadly impact; it didn’t seem to me like following the bleeding-edge of fat loss into an untimely death was a good idea.
This is about being healthy and staying alive, isn’t it?
I wanted to read about fitness from my perspective.
… Not from some Hollywood reality TV star that probably spends as much time on the table getting the fat sucked out of her as she does at the gym.
I wanted to read about someone starting out trying to get fit after life-long poor nutritional choices, limited exercise, and with the majority of their time sucked away at a cramped desk job.
And that’s exactly the position I take on this site. This is my paleo lifestyle blog.
I still work at my cramped desk job more hours a week than I care to think about — and I’m still getting healthy.
I’m finding time to make the meals to fit in with my lifestyle, while making time for exercise and fun. I’m going to post things that work for me and even those that don’t. Everything from when I started out as big tub of goo to when I have my ideal body.
September 19th, 2011 Update:
Our diet remains very strict. We don’t eat grains. We don’t eat refined sugars. We eat very, very, very little dairy.
For exercise, the main thing we do is walk. We like walking because it’s easy and it works. You can get started at any fitness level and it pays dividends even after you become fit in the form of cardiovascular health.
When we started this blog we could barely walk a mile without being winded, feeling faint, dizzy, etc., and now we are going on 6+ mile walks and doing them multiple times a week.
We also are enrolled in a once-a-week self defense (Krav Maga) class. Sometimes we mix in some light aerobic activity (heavy bag work) or strength training in the form of bench presses or kettlebells.
