The Amazing Testosterone

The primary anabolic and sex hormone in humans is testosterone.
A hormone talked a lot about in the weight lifting arena, and a hormone that more and more men have low levels of. Interestingly enough, women feel the effect of testosterone more than men do.
We’ll take a closer look at this very important hormone.

Are White Potaoes Paleo?

When I started eating Paleo, potatoes weren’t a part of it. It was almost considered as bad as bread. This always had me a bit confused, but I stuck to it and thought that the starches in white potatoes was the thing to look out for as well as the glycoalkaloids it contains, a sort of chemical seen in all nightshades.

As we find out more about our hunter and gatherer relatives, how they lived, what they ate and how they prepared their food, we also have to tweak the Paleo diet. Nothing is consistent.
Not long ago, more and more people within the Paleo community started to write about the white potato not being banned on the Paleo diet anymore. I thought we’d take a closer look at why this little beloved tuber.

Minimalistic Footwear

I found a post on my facebook page from 2010. I had posted a link to Vivobarefoot’s page about FiveFingers. I had written something along the lines “what the heck is this? This is ridiculous!” Or perhaps a bit more gentle, but the meaning of what I wrote was “WTF!”

6 years later I own a pair of vivobarefoot and Luna sandals, and I am looking at purchasing a pair of fivefingers and Lems Shoes. My partner has 2 Vivobarefoot, one all-year-around shoe and one water resistant shoe, and he has 2 pair of fivefingers. Imagine that!
