  1. Top 10 reasons not to run a marathon

    these are associations which may not tell us the true picture

    99% (i’d say) of people who participate in sports – and probably particularly running sports – carb load. they consume massive ammounts of simple sugars – far more than even Wetsern dietary habits

    this will produce huge problems with immune dysfunction, insulin production and muscle wasting – all these would lead to injury and hyper inflamation

    we need studies comparing proper fat based diets and long term physical stress


  2. Perhaps it was a joke, but I wouldn’t be so flippant in flipping off Phidippides! He did much more in his last week than merely run a marathon! His “work out” was more like cross fit on steroids, and would probably kill you (and me too, for that matter)! Look it up if you wish.

    Saying his running was bad since it killed him, is as logical as saying it’s bad to eat meat since someone chocked and died on a ham sandwich!

  3. Thanks for the love! Now Kelloggs will definitely be after my blog to shut it down! Yikes. Ha. Now back to eating my eggs that will make me fat.
