Re: Paleo Diet + Antibitoics ?

You probably won't have trouble with the antibiotic, but people can get an upset stomach/diarrhea. If you really want to stay away from yogurt, you can take a probiotic like Jeff said. They have...

Re: Recommend brand for purchasing a spin bike.

I found a Johnny G Spinner for my wife on craigs list for $200, the thing is built like a rock. The parts aren't cheap though, so you want to look it over (resistance pads, chain, etc).

Re: Going to the gym once a week or two?

Re: Shoulder Pain Under Collar Bone

Your story sounds like mine. I've been to the doc as well, he thought it was probably some micro tears around the upper pectorals, subscapularis, but it was mostly a guess. Nothing was obviously...

Re: Shoulder Pain/Injury
