Re: Are plantains paleo?

Neither rice nor wheat are real food, go pick some wild, eat it, and see how you feel. Theyre both toxic in their natural state and require a good amount of processing to eat. Once processed, white...

Re: Josh Bridges

Pretty sure I heard at the games that Josh was an active duty seal on leave for the games. But for the life of me I can't remember where I heard this so I can't comment on it's credibility. I want...

Re: Final games thoughts

Someone said it before, thats not a fair comparison. In football for example, you play a game of football in every round of the playoffs. In Crossfit its a different 'game' every round. If you...

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

Rich was ahead by so much going into the final 3 that he would have had to finish dead last in all of them and had Bridges or Smith win all of them to lose, or pretty close to that. Since all 3 were...

Re: Final games thoughts

I can't believe noone mentioned those retarded watt bikes. That was by far the worst part of the games, it was like everything stopped and a lazy spin class started. If you're going to put people...

Re: Rob Orlando

rumors I heard at the games were that Rob was struggling some in the swim and put his hand on one of the paddleboards that the lifeguards were on and got instantly DQ'd. And that for Mikko he got...

Re: Are wallballs safe?

Wow that was perfect, thanks! I think it'll be a little awkward looking up with just the eyes without craning the neck and it will definitely be harder standing further from the wall, but I'll have...

Are wallballs safe?

I haven't been on the boards in a while but this is something I've been thinking of and I wanted to hear others' input. It seems to me that wallballs are unsafe and should be removed from Crossfit. ...

Re: paleo "change your life in 30 days"

Red wine is paleo-friendly. Wood aged spirits such as whiskey, brandy, scotch, and cognac are also acceptable. All of the above have like 3-5 carbs a glass while providing all sorts of benefits...

Re: High blood pressure

Go paleo for a month. Kick the grains, sugar, PUFAs, and dairy. Assuming that fixes things, add full fat dairy back in and see how it affects you. Im not convinced sodium intake has any real...

Re: full fat!

High total cholesterol means nothing, small dense LDLs are bad and has nothing to do with total cholesterol. In fact the bigger and fluffier your LDL (which is good), the higher your cholesterol...

Re: Wings

Not all paleolithic food is good for you, not all neolithic food is bad for you. Butter is one of the awesome, healthy, neolithic foods; it's pure animal fat.

Also, there's nothing wrong with...

Re: Not so much an injury but... bump in my hand....

Re: Ear issue?

I know what you're talking about, this happens to me sometimes too and it's quite annoying. However I have no idea why it happens or how to prevent it, hopefully someone has the answer.
