Kidding aside, the typical sedentary office environment is a serious public health problem, and we’re tackling it head on. I’m working with biomechanist and popular author Katy Bowman [2] on a comprehensive multimedia course called Don’t Just Sit There!. Stay tuned for more on that in the near future.

I was recently on the Low Carb Paleo Show podcast. Go have a listen [3].

Episode #23 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast [4] is now live. Brad has a lively discussion with Paleo Girl [5] author Leslie Klenke about her background, her story, her new book, and why parents should read it alongside their teens.

Why cramps actually occur, and how Gatorade probably isn’t helping [15] matters.

Everything Else

Looks like the “3500 calories = a pound of body fat” law is more of a canard [17].
