        Finding press ups etc a bit painful at present but I am improving slowly but surely. I can touch my toes again but still can't get my palms on the floor. I am seeing a physiotherapist every two weeks and she has given me some stretches to do. Because it came on suddenly I thought Sciatica would go suddenly too.
        Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

        • This is a great article that charts the reasons the modern diet is unhealthy and why we have an obesity epidemic.

              • Great interview with my friend Bill Vick and his on-going battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Bill was 74 when the interview took place and he is now coming up on his 76th birthday. I recently met Bill and his wife here in NorCal and he looked amazing! Wonderful story on taking control of your health. It reinforces my belief that embracing a Paleo/Primal lifestyle has it's biggest impact on those over 50...

                Bill says "I'm one of the very, very few (1 out of 200,000) who is beating the odds and this April I'm running in a 5K in support of Pulmonary Fibrosis. My 76th birthday is the day before the race and my intention is not only to run but win my age group. Wish me luck please."

                  Yes, I think this is likely true, and also this is the time when lifetime of substandard lifestyle choices - food, drink, stress... will come home to roost so it would be better to adopt the necessary changes sooner rather than later. Imagine the difference between someone who followed a primal lifestyle for thirty years turning 50 versus someone trying to overcome 30 years of neglect.

                    Yes, good point on the accumulated effects of poor lifestyle choices coming home to roost beginning in your 50s. The great thing is the body wants be healthy and is always striving for health. We just need to feed it and exercise it in the right way and it will move toward balance and health.

                      This is a positive way of looking at the body and I like that. But is it really true, I wonder? How do you reach this conclusion?

                      • The great thing is the body wants be healthy and is always striving for health.
                        I absolutely agree with this. my theory on this is we were designed to move. we were nomadic hunters. we need to be able to move in order to live. the healthier we are, the easier our life is. and our body wants us to have an easy life hence our propensity to take the lazy way out and store fat too. except the lazy way out and fat storage now means something completely different. If any of that makes sense!

                          I come to this conclusion based on personal experience and through the experiences of those I've helped embrace a Paleo/Primal lifestyle. If you feed and exercise the body the right way, eliminate toxins and deal with stress then your body will move toward balance and health. Personally, once I committed to the Paleo/Primal lifestyle my body adjusted my blood pressure to normal, arthritis and allergies went away and blood chemistry, body weight and body fat moved to ideal levels.

                            • You might also tell them that one of the MDs (Katz) who compiled the report also said that although he rated the Paleo/Primal diet last he did so because he felt most people would find it hard to follow not that he thought the diet was unhealthy. Based just on the diet itself, he thought it might be one of the healthiest. You can read his response here:
                              Judging the Judging of Diets | LinkedIn
                              One of the criteria of U.S. News was that the diet be easy to follow. I assume that those doing the evaluation had a weighted measure and that "easy to follow" counted more than some other measures.

                                Exactly, our body wants to be fit and healthy, we just keep throwing up roadblocks.
