    Ahh, well. One of my dearest friends is a biological anthropologist. Around 15-17 years ago, due to her influence, an evolutionary framework became my default setting for just about everything in my life. Well, at least in theory. In practice, I was still veg (ethical/emotional) at the time, I absolutely believed and understood that humans evolved eating meat and that it was therefore biologically appropriate.

    Around 7 or 8 years ago, when my youngest was diagnosed with many food allergies, we started eating meat. A lot of it. At the time, it was certainly my intention to move toward a primal/paleo lifestyle but I simply couldn't get off the grains and sugar.

    And for probably 20 years, I've been interested in nutrition and related fields. So, yes, there is a hx there, one that goes much much further back than May.

    I've been on a paleo diet for just about a year now. I went heavy on the HIIT workouts for awhile to lean myself out more, but it was SO physically taxing (although it was sort of like a sick pleasure ;-) Yes, I have that Crossfit mentality...) I've come to discover that intermittent fasting (generally a 16 hour fast/8 hour feed) and doing very intense, heavy lifting sessions about three times a week (calisthenics, baby!) has given me a more stronger, lean physique without burning me out like HIIT did. Becoming a personal trainer this year is giving me even more motivation to keep myself looking strong since unfortunately, looks can sell! ;-)

    Batty, SPRINTING!!!! ;-) I've never really touched a barbell.

    Jenn, I am 5'4", 106-110lbs., at around 17% BF via a caliper reading about 6 months ago. I'm glad I inspire you! It's totally achievable if you have the right mindset and dedication :-)
    ok, now i'm really confident on the direction i'm going, because this is exactly what i am doing now! i used to be the tabata queen myself. i am glad i got over that. heh. i'm down to the last *maybe* 10 lbs of fat i wanna shed. i'll get there!

    thank you for sharing!!

    Thanks Batty. I'm sure the guys in the office are wondering why I just let out a horse laugh.
