It can seem like a cruel contradiction: lose weight, lose bone mass. Lose a lot of weight and lose even more. (Rest assured there’s more to the story, but we continue….) A collaborative study involving researchers from the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri highlights the downside of weight loss by calorie restriction both during and in the months following weight loss.
The 30-Day Primal Health Challenge to act “as if” has come to a close. From the updates I have received – from the few that were kind enough to send in weekly results to the dozens of emails I have been sent over the course of the last month from other challenge participants – I can pretty confidently say that on the whole participants are fitter, leaner and (dare I say?) happier. Don’t get me wrong. There were hurdles. Making the transition to a lower carb lifestyle can be tricky for some. Some people experienced lower energy levels early on. But for those that pushed through and stayed the course there seemed to be light at the end of the tunnel in almost every case.
This month we analyzed everything from dark chocolate, low-carb fruit, and how to eat healthy when you’re in a financial bind to health marketing schemes, drugs in sports and the context of calories. Be sure to check out any post you missed and stay tuned for the final results of the 30-Day Primal Health Challenge. I’ll be publishing them shortly.
