“Trust your medical professionals, they always know best. Or, try a simple experiment: Follow a Paleo diet, and assess how you feel and perform. I know, I can hear the MDs now, that it’s ‘just anecdotal.’ If you are going to save your ass you are not likely to get much support in this matter unless you have a forward-thinking and aggressive primary physician.”—Robb Wolf, The Paleo Solution (via bephf)
“In the group of women I work with – spanning the decades from late twenties to early sixties – it is noticeable that youth and beauty don’t dictate the happiest relationship, the kinkiest sex or the most wildly romantic love affair… Men, those devils, watch porn and, weirdly, still lust after women without pneumatic tits, fake tans and plastic sandals. They fall in love and lust with less than perfect female bodies, and are thrilled to bits to get their hands on all the bits women love to hate about themselves. Go out into the street and look at the people holding hands, feeling each other up and gazing passionately down each others cleavages: most of them aren’t world class beauties with gym-toned bodies, they are perfectly ordinary people hiding what someone else finds exceptional and arousing under not-next-season’s clothes and quite possibly a roll of flab. Here’s what women, and men, want: someone to turn them on and make them happy. Funnily enough, all this mainly goes on in the brain, which is why you don’t need botox and silicone to get laid, or loved.”—
I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.
The Iron is the best antidepressant I have ever found. There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength. Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it’s impossible to turn back.
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
“I REALLY like helping people and if you work with me I will do my damnedest to help you achieve your goals, be they performance, health or longevity. That said, I am not a therapist, spiritualist or self-help person. Everyone has shit going on, but if you eat a paleo diet, sleep 8-9hrs per night and exercise once in a while I’d be shocked if the rest of your life woes do not dramatically improve. If you are lacking in sleep, Paleo foods or exercise, do your best to fix it. See! You don’t need to call me! You can do all this on your own, Tiger!-Robb Wolf”—(via christinadoeslife)
Day 2 of my glomming onto CFV’s Fall Paleo Challenge (but not “competing” in it). Forgot to take pics of some of the stuff, so just summarizing:

1pm: 4 hard-boiled eggs with salt, pepper, and a bit of extra-virgin olive oil
4pm-ish: chicken pad prik king from local Thai place that delivers in the rain.
5:30pm: ChocoCocoNana Paleo Bowl (keep coming up with different names for this)
