    Nearly every "health" oriented site or authority I peruse on an occasional basis still pushes the wholesomeness of "whole grains" and legumes, low-fat schemes, etc., etc. I can't name one...

    "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield. It's one I continue reading nearly daily for inspiration or a quick pick-me-up. I believe a new edition is on its way.

    I've been "thin" now for about a year and half (6'4," went from 242 to 192 lbs. in three months. Working out has added about six pounds back). It's distressing to see that the clear majority out...

    I do like the expression "extinction diet" to refer to how most Americans now eat and, increasingly, the rest of the world. If you subscribe to evolutionary theory, theoretically those eating a paleo...

    I'm fifty-eight. I do a half-hour weight-lifting routine twice a week (grumblingly at first, but I'm always glad at the end. I push to near failure, not complete failure) which keeps me a fair shape...

    Time Article On Psilocybin

    There's an interesting article on 'shrooms in Time's online health magazine. I searched the forum to note Magic Mushrooms are occasionally discussed but didn't find a consensus (yet) on whether their...

    I drank "alcoholically" for thirty years, frequently a fifth a day, so I'm surprised to still be walking around. I can say it really shapes the kind of life you're going to have (obviously). It's a...

    Beans (Kidney, Black, Navy, etc.)

    I'm getting the impression the legumes exclusion (as part of the primal diet) is relatively new as, when researching MDA and this forum, older posts often recommend beans as a super food. In today's...
