    I have around 70 pounds of fat still to lose, am taller than the average woman so I tend to be able to put a lot of muscle on, although I haven't really changed my exercise routine.

    Like a good Grokette should, I regularly make a bone broth with leftover chicken and pork chop bones. I pour freshly-squeezed lemon juice (am allergic to vinegar) and boiled water over the...

    Fasted training sprints?

    I'm interested in the concept of fasted training, AKA 'train low, race high', and I've tried it out a few times.

    It makes sense to me that you could improve the efficiency of your metabolism and...

    I'm unsure of the actual mechanisms involved - undoubtedly a mixture of nature and nurture. But to really understand why homosexuality persists and isn't bred out, and may in fact be an evolutionary...

    Long term ketosis

    I've been Primal for 5 months and I have noticed some interesting changes in that time. I've had some ups and downs in how I felt, but my weight loss has been steady throughout - 33lbs so far, yay!

    Some people say they still overeat with primal, but I say they're not doing it right. Eat a large meal of high-fat animal protein with low-fiber veggies, and you will struggle to finish it. If you're...
