Greasy Food, Joint Pain, Being Obsessive Compulsive, Training Well & Enjoying Life, Matt Foreman
Greasy Food, Joint Pain, Being Obsessive Compulsive, Training Well & Enjoying Life
Matt Foreman  |  July 9 2014  |  Nutrition
Okay, I’ve got some important ideas to share with you, and I just came up with them about two hours ago. So I need to get everything down on paper before I forget it. Make sure you understand something right from the beginning. I have to start this article by talking about myself, but I’m going to transition into talking about YOU. And you want to hear what I’ve got to say, because it might keep you from having workouts that are as wretched and miserable as the one I had t......
Sewage Shake, Mike Gray
Sewage Shake
Mike Gray  |  September 18 2011  |  Nutrition
I dig the nutritional aspect of the weightlifting game. I really try to get the most out of what I eat and I love to come in just under my weight while trying to hold onto the most amount of muscle I can. Watching what I eat has always been pretty important to me and having to make weight gives me even more reason to really think about what I consume. I have read plenty about post-workout nutrition and I understand its importance so I devised a shake that tries to encompass everything I bel......
What's In the Water?, Yael Grauer
What's In the Water?
Yael Grauer  |  September 23 2010  |  Nutrition
Even if your water supply is amongst the cleanest in the country, it could still be harmful for your health. Yes, you read write. Even if your water source continually meets or exceeds the requirements for both federal regulations and non-enforcable health standards, it could still be filled with prescription drugs and other contaminants. How do water suppliers get away with this? Because many chemical contaminants found in the drinking water are entirely unregulated. “It is certainly p......

The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf: Book Excerpt
Robb Wolf  |  September 12 2010  |  Nutrition
Our good friend Robb Wolf has been kind enough to allow us to run an excerpt from his new book, The Paleo Solution. This book is a story about us. You know, H. Sapiens. It’s also a story of how to optimize our performance, health, and longevity. While combining such monumental plot lines might lead you to believe this is one of those family saga novels that jumps all over in time, don’t worry. This story both starts and ends in the past. However, in order to fully appreciate this st......
The Acid-Alkaline Question, Yael Grauer
The Acid-Alkaline Question
Yael Grauer  |  April 30 2010  |  Nutrition
When I was still in high school, I found myself cooking food at a really bizarre dinner party. One of my friends happened to be renting a room from a macrobiotic guru in town, and all of the macroneurotics (as they called themselves) would show up to cook and eat strange rice variations and weird vegetables. The first thing I remember is getting yelled at for rinsing veggies in warm water. "This is supposed to be a raw salad," someone scolded, "and you're cooking it." I also ......

The Protein Debate: Dr. Loren Cordain & T. Colin Campbell
Loren Cordain  |  March 19 2008  |  Nutrition
Introduction Protein plays a litany of roles in living systems: structural elements, peptide hormones, cell recognition, antibodies… the list is staggering and continues to grow as our understanding of biology expands. What, however, is the role of dietary protein in health and disease in humans? Is the source, type and quantity intimately and directly tied to optimal physical development and continued wellbeing? Is it causative or preventative of disease? How do we know, and how can w......
Dietary Cure for Acne: Interview with Dr. Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf
Dietary Cure for Acne: Interview with Dr. Loren Cordain
Robb Wolf  |  May 5 2006  |  Nutrition
In this months Performance Menu we have a brief interview with Prof. Loren Cordain regarding his new E-book The Dietary Cure for Acne: http://www.dietaryacnecure.com/. (we managed to pester him with a few other questions as well). Professor Cordain, please tell our readers about your new E-book, The Dietary Cure for Acne. How is this information different than the information one might get from the dermatologist? Although the medical and dermatology communities generally have gone on ......
Diet and Stature, Robb Wolf
Diet and Stature
Robb Wolf  |  April 28 2006  |  Nutrition
Nicki and I were shopping in Trader Joe’s the other night and the woman ahead of us was having an interesting conversation with the cashier. She was buying a whole slew of soy products and the cashier said he just read a news piece about the possible health downsides of soy. The woman (about 5’ tall) said she was from Japan and that soy products had been part of the diet for thousands of years and if there was a problem with soy she would have heard about it by now. I chimed in that ......
