Weekend Link Love – Edition 22

Taking a lead from last week’s plyometric post, Andrew from Go Healthy Go Fit incorporates plyometrics into a jump rope routine.

Do you read product labels on autopilot when shopping? Do you think the supermarkets have some nerve putting the low-fat, high sugar items in the ‘healthy living’ section? You might just be a low carber. But if you’re not sure, Musclehack has 38 more clues in this tongue-in-cheek list, You Know You’re a Low Carber When… (here’s one: You know you’re a low carber when you read Mark’s Daily Apple every day, even on weekends).

If you’re interested in creative problem solving, relieving stress, or heck, flying on a magical unicorn, perhaps you should try lucid dreaming. Read Crabby McSlacker’s guide to controlling your dreams.

Okay, this is coming a day late, but if you’re looking for some tasty Halloween ‘spirits,’ Mary Dan Eades, M.D. will treat you to a wonderful low carb caramel apple martini recipe.

The rise in American childhood obesity over the past decade is no secret. But what about the rise in cases of kidney stones in children? Go Frolic investigates this odd epidemic, and analyzes possible causes.

Sitting at a desk in front of a computer all day certainly wasn’t Grok’s M.O. But for the cubicly inclined, FitSugar has a tidy list of desk exercises for the office. And if the desk stretches just don’t cut the mustard, check out this interesting and possibly ridiculous device that turns your computer chair into an exercise bike.

and last, but not least…

Whole Health Source has a brief literature review on saturated fat and health – Part 1 and Part 2. As Stephan says, “Eat the fat on your steaks folks. Just like your great-grandparents did, and everyone who came before.”

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
