You are in the middle of a river (Time) and facing downstream. The future approaches you from behind… only to recede into the past, which actually lies in front of you, moving ever farther away. If you could look far enough downstream you would see the beginning of the stream and in essence, everything.Robb Wolf, The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet.

With a focus on the evolutionary and anthropological basis for diet, health and well being in modern humans,  Dr. Loren Cordain, a Professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University, looked far enough downstream, to find the answer to today’s dietary issues. His focused backward glance in time resulted in an excellent book The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and get Healthy by Eating the Foods You Were Designed to Eat.

Robb Wolf, Co-Owner of Nor-Cal Strength and Conditioning and also a renowned CrossFit Coach read much of Dr. Cordain’s work, became a student of Dr. Cordain’s and eventually wrote The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet.  Robb Wolf’s work is an engaging study of Dr. Cordain’s work coupled with practical advice for incorporating this, the human diet, into our modern lives.

If you don’t have the time or energy, or if you’re not a pointy headed academic geek, like me (I actually enjoy reading about exercise and diet), trust me and give both CrossFit and The Paleo Solution a good 12 week trial. It will make all the difference in the world for you. After years of study and experimentation in my own life, these two methods get my highest recommendation and continued support.

Thanks for stopping by, sorry for the delay in today’s post, I suspect a later post on Tuesdays will be the norm! Joe H
