Some cool pic of downtown Eureka Springs Arkansas and surrounding area. Plus bikes of my 30 closest friends...

...spent a week on the road last week on my bike was great. Stayed mostly Paleo. Biggest cheat was mass amounts of beers.

Food & Diet / Vitamins and Supplements
« on: March 26, 2012, 10:21:59 PM »
I was never much on taking them. I've had periods where I would take them for a while but never long term. I always figured I'd rather spend the money on healthy foods.

Recent studies are showing they may do more harm than good. Of course it's a multi-billion dollar business so word is slow to get out.

Vitamins and Supplements May Lead to Earlier Death

Added vitamins may harm more than your wallet

Advice Column / The problems with Fruit juice
« on: March 13, 2012, 08:37:44 PM »
Found a good article on the subject after a recent study linked juice consumption to an increased risk for heart attacks.

Sounds like bottom line is, Eat the fruit don't drink only the juice. Or if you must drink the juice at least don't drink it on an empty stomach.

Was checking to see what Mark had to say on the subject...
"Fiber: Again, when you juice you’re deliberately leaving out the skins and pulp (or most of them anyway). Just as the skins and pulp usually hold a lot of the nutrient load, they are the primary (if not sole) source of a fruit’s or vegetable’s fiber content. While I’ve said before that our medical culture overplays the fiber issue (convincing us to down large quantities of grain-based fiber products to “clean us out”), I nonetheless believe that we do require some plant-based fiber for intestinal health. Another crucial benefit of fiber in this case? It slows down the digestion and absorption of the juice’s sugars"

Food & Diet / Variations of Paleo diets

There's lots of variations... lots of reading, experiment and see what works for you.

Some sound basic principals(note #30)...

Food & Diet / Gluten sensitivity
« on: July 17, 2011, 06:02:08 PM »
CNN had another article on gluten sensitivity. Funny that so many people could benefit from a gluten free diet and never try it.

"One thing to consider is that many people feel better on a gluten free diet because they are eating less food overall (due to fewer choices) and cutting out most sources of refined grains, both of which are a good idea even if you don't have gluten issues."

From my car forum, from a guy that hasn't seen me in several months commenting on pics from our Galveston Run  ;D

"Sorry I couldn't make the run. Those photos just don't look right without a RED Spyder.
Everyone looks great and so do the cars. But who is that skinny guy that looks like Mark?"


Me (Mark) on the left, drinking the water and not smoking the ciggy  8)

Drop 45lbs and people notice.

Food & Diet / Staying(mostly) Paleo on vacations
« on: May 25, 2011, 03:06:54 AM »
Attended a 4 day Spyder rally last week in Eureka Springs AR. Lots of times on trips like this I just totally give in to old eating habits and feel like crap because of it. I'll admit I cheated a little but never went crazy.

Tuesday night was an all-night 10 hour drive just to get there. Ate before I left and took a bag of nuts and seeds to graze on along the way. Passed by many fast food joints  ;D

I had breakfast in Eureka but stuck to eggs and bacon as everybody else gorged on the monster pancakes and biscuits smothered in gravy.
Lunch we did Mexican, went for the chicken enchaladas, a couple of corn tortillas never killed anybody.
Dinner instead of the fried fish and potatoes everybody else pigged on I went for the boiled crab legs and a baked potato.

Breakfast was bacon and eggs again, surprise  ;D
Lunch was a greek salad, I skipped the pie and ice cream most got, although it did look tempting  :o
Dinner was a german place and I had a dinner salad and shrimp in a mushrrom sauce with peppers and veggies, very yummy.

Breakfast bacon and eggs
Lunch was beef ribs without sauce and coleslaw
Dinner was beef enchaladas, very nice.

Breakfast I had to cheat a little since we ate an old mill that's famous for their biscuits, had one along with my eggs and sausage
Lunch was grilled spicey shrimp with pan potatoes and carrots
Dinner I opted for shrimp again, I can eat a lot of shrimp.

Now I wasn't perfect, mass amounts of dark beer were consumed but I never had trouble waking up early and would get in a brisk 1 hour walk on Eureka's hilly streets every morning. Took lots of pic(see below)

Checked the scales and didn't gain a pound and felt great the entire trip. Slight hangover Sunday morning but I'm sure it came from the 1/2 bottle of champaigne I consumed Saturday night(on top of several Belgium beers)  ::)

A few pics of the rally...

A few pics of downtown and nearby Civil War battlefield...

A video one of our guy's wife took(that's me 3 cars ahead)

General Discussion / Megan Fox is Paleo
« on: March 16, 2011, 04:41:30 AM »
Picked that up from the ABC story yesterday.

Anyways,  her story...
Megan still eats whole food sources instead of processed foods and avoids grains. This is similar to what many people call the
“Paleo Diet”. Which is similar to eating like our ancestors. A description of the Paleo Diet:
Avoid Grains. Hunters and Gatherers ate fruits and vegetables as their carbohydrates. The
human body was meant to eat fruits and vegetables, not grains. Lot’s of natural sources of
protein things like nuts, eggs, and meat is a great source of protein. Fats are good for you. Yes,
you heard it right. Megan Fox’s diet has a good amount of fat. She eats an ounce of almonds
and a few eggs ever day.
