    6 months into the Paleo approach to nutrition and exercise has resulted in a 48 lb weight loss. Needless to say I pretty much need a brand new wardrobe! The last time I weighed 165 lbs was my last year of high school.

    I have been involved in the health and fitness industry since my 20s and its hard to believe its taken me this long to really understand the key to weight management. We are programmed to be healthy, we just need to get back, as closely as possible, to our ancestral diet and let our body gravitate to it's healthy set point. Eating a clean diet, eliminating gluten containing grains, trans-fats and foods that contain excess additives and sugar will free up our body's natural desire to be healthy. Simple really.
    Oh now come on, if you keep getting faster like this I'll NEVER catch you! (

    Awesome time, I will aim for another improvement next week!

            Absolutely! Wonderful to hear from you. Great start, you will absolutely get into the 180's if you adopt the Paleo/Primal diet and exercise plan. Feel free to check out my logged experience at my Facebook page link below. Hopefully it will be of help and provide some motivation. Best of luck!

                    Are you Sprint Adapted?

                    If you have embraced a Paleo/Primal lifestyle then you know what the term "Fat Adapted" is. But how many of you have become sprint adapted? It's initially challenging to move outside your comfort zone and start to incorporate sprints into your weekly fitness activities but like going through the process of becoming fat adapted the results will amaze you. It will take you about 2 to 3 weeks to adapt to sprinting but once you do you will look forward to the exhilaration of maximum effort. Take your time and build up to it, starting at 70% efforts and let your body adapt over time, there is no rush. There are many incredible biochemical and physiological changes that take place once you have become sprint adapted not the least of which is a tremendous boost in HGH. Sprinting re-ignites our ancestral genes in many unique and positive ways.

                      If you are looking to reduce body fat then consider high intensity interval training. Repeated high-intensity exercise sessions over 6 weeks (2 d·week) is a powerful method of increasing whole-body and skeletal muscle capacities to oxidize fat and carbohydrate in previously untrained individuals.

                      Sprinting is definitely the fountain of youth for seniors. Driving up Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone. After 3 or 4 weeks you will feel like you are in your 30s. Start easy and gradually build intensity until you can handle 8 to 10 100 yd sprints with a 1 minute walking/slow jogging rest in between reps. I usually jog a mile to the track as a warm up, do the first rep at about 70% and gradually increase until I'm going all out by rep #5. There is no rush to get up to 8 reps, take your time and build slowly!

                        Hello canuck416, You're awesome. A real inspiration! I am 62 and 350lbs. I am a constant failure at this Paleo/Primal lifestyle thing but I won't give up. I hate this fat and the way I look. I hope I can make it before this weight takes me out.

                          You can do it Sugarisatoxin! Don't think about the long journey, just one day at a time and before you know it you will be down 100 lbs. Its not unrealistic for you to be at 250 within a year. Its never to late to regain your health. Wishing you much success!

                            I'm going to start adding meditation to my daily routines as well as experimenting with High Performance Yoga (Check out Steve Ilg's incredible book Total Body Transformation). Some new adventures in my journey to great health!

                              Just finished a sprint workout using a resistance sled. Wow! Pretty intense. I was over at the high school track and notice a pulling sled on the football field and asked if I could try it out. I would love to use something like this on a consistent basis and see how it improved my conditioning. Here's an interesting link I found that reviews this training tool.

                              Conventional Sprints or Resisted Sprints?

                                In order to maximize fat loss, we must elevate growth hormone secretion, minimize insulin spikes, improve muscle insulin sensitivity, and keep cortisol under control. This is best achieved by keeping training sessions brief, brutal, basic and intermittent.

                                If you are looking to step up your training intensity to maximize fat loss and not sure where to start, here is a some good info that may help.
