The Grunter, the no-wiper, the bluetooth person. These are just a few of the eccentrics who frequent most gyms. Life Spotlight covers the rudest, most ridiculous, most outlandish, and yet most common gym habits. So read up, and don’t be one of these guys/gals.
Statins. Do we really need another reason not to take them? Sure, why not?: Statins may decrease joy of sex. (thanks, George!)
For the CrossFitters, P90Xers, and Prison Workout enthusiasts, MizFit has a new pushup variation to toss into your strength training mix.
USA Today harps about a new study that proves you can lose weight on any diet if you restrict calories enough. Is this evidence for you to start a burrito diet or perhaps the half-donut-a-day-and-nothing-else diet? Or maybe good health is something more than pounds lost.
The department of obvious studies (UK division) is at it again, this time proving that lifestyle affects your risk of a stroke. Via Diet Blog.
First there was soft serve chicken, then there were the atrocities that make you fat. This week it’s time to go global with “I Can’t Believe They Call That Food!” from My Travel Web.
Two of my favorite bloggers, Scott Kustes of Modern Forager and Mike O’Donnell of The IF Life, have combined forces to bring you a new Uberblog, The Life Spotlight. It’s a central hub for eating/moving/living like a modern caveman. Go there, read them, and update your RSS feed.
Methuselah at Pay Now Live Later is going all-out Grok this week with his Letters From a Caveman series. How would Grok react were he transported forward thousands of years to the present and forced to blog?
Can you tickle yourself?
Before we get to this week’s link love I’d like to make a request. Whoever is sending harassing emails to a particular health blogger that doesn’t agree with my opinions regarding health and fitness please stop. You are going about things in exactly the wrong way and I don’t support it all.
Okay. Now that that has been said, off to the links!
According to the results of the Justification for the Use of Statins in Primary Prevention: An Intervention Trial Evaluating Rosuvastatin (JUPITER) 80% of adults over 50 are eligible for statin treatment as the primary method of prevention against cardiovascular events. You probably know what I think about that.
For a personal take on the PB experience, check out Primal Fusion, a new blog chronicling the adventures of living and eating Primal. Keep up with Angie and Ryan as they experiment with salad spinners, sausage, and even…muffins?

Running wild through the internet like a greased pig at a county fair, it’s the bacon explosion. The bane of vegetarians and the New York Times, but is it unhealthy or is it Primal? Feel free to chime in.
I received a few emails this week from frustrated readers who had read a post from Fitness Fixation discussing the struggles of low carb dieting. While I don’t agree with much (anything?) of what the nutritionist has to say, I do believe many people jump into low carb dieting without much knowledge on how to eat right. The result is a diet low in both carbs and fat, thus not enough fuel to maintain strength and energy. Let me know what you think.
Regular readers know how highly I esteem omega 3 fatty acids. But if you’re new on the Primal playing field or you want to learn the nitty-gritty, I’d suggest reading Best Life’s in-depth look at Omega 3’s.
For those in need of a new scale and a new toilet seat, now you can hit two birds with one stone. Read about the commode that weighs you at Switched.
I’d like to apologize to everyone who has been following the Primal Blueprint. Apparently I’ve been entirely wrong, and the only true way to be healthy is to just eat cookies. There’s even a new store that caters to all your cookie diet needs. And just in case you were wondering, yes, it’s located in Hollywood. (Thanks for the link, Mark.)
The locker room can be unbearable. For anyone who remembers those painful, self-conscious moments after P.E. in middle school, The Great Fitness Experiment has a funny and revealing post about showering at the gym.
Will Smith is just full of good advice. Ross Training posts about the wonderful moment in The Pursuit of Happyness where Smith talks to his son about protecting one’s dreams.
Forget skiing, forget snowboarding, Lift Magazine brings you extreme sledding. Extremely fast, extremely fun, extremely dangerous, and extremely expensive.
Do me a personal favor by following this link and selecting “Six Until Me” as the Best Patient’s Blog of 2008. My friend Kerri runs this great site and I think she deserves to win (check out her site and judge for yourself or just take my word for it). And check out her husband’s fitness site, I Look Like Fit, while you’re at it.
You may remember the misguided buzz about low carb diets affecting short term memory, but what about high sugar diets affecting long term memory?
Did you eat too many Christmas cookies? Having a hard time overcoming that holiday weight gain? The good folks over at NPR explain how overeating effects the body.
Here at the Daily Apple type 2 diabetes is a common topic, but type 1 is rarely mentioned. Six Until Me offers some great personal insight on living with type 1 diabetes.
Hungry? Why wait? Eat some dark chocolate. Dr. Briffa explains why dark chocolate may satisfy the appetite more than milk chocolate.
Can one be both vegetarian and Primal? Modern Forager does a good job of tackling this meaty subject. And also, check out these vegetarian protein possibilities.
