Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I just wanted to throw out a little tip for reader’s that use Firefox. There is a great extension available for it called Scrapbook. Instead of bookmarking a post, you can use scrapbook to save it to your hard drive. It will recreate a web page just as you viewed it, and you can even have it drill down to include links found in the page up to several levels. Try it–you’ll like it! :-)

  2. I wish we could edit our posts. Change “Their” to “There.” :-)

  3. I’d be very interested in reading about the different nutritional needs of average folk versus athletes. For instance do we need more protein or just more calories overall? Are there foods or nutrients that are especially beneficial to the athlete? What is a good pre-training or pre-competition meal? Should the diet of a female athlete differ greatly from the diet of a male athlete?

    If it matters, I’m (another) roller derby girl. I train 3-4 times a week and am in good weight and health.
