A long time ago you remember this workout…

Back in the tenth day on August of 2013, you and a buddy teamed up for a colossal amount of squatting and Buddy Push Ups.  The rep scheme breakdown is listed below.  Read it like this:

Weight being squatted = number of times a man has to do it to finish / number of times a woman has to do it to finish.

10000/6500 lbs. of Back Squats

  • 225 = 45/29
  • 205 = 49/32
  • 185 = 55/36
  • 165 = 61/40
  • 155 = 65/42
  • 145 = 69/45
  • 135 = 75/49
  • 125 = 80/52
  • 115 = 87/57
  • 105 = 96/62
  • 95 = 106/69

7000/4500 lbs. of Front Squats

  • 185 = 41/25
  • 165 = 46/28
  • 155 = 49/30
  • 145 = 52/32
  • 135 = 56/34
  • 125 = 60/36
  • 115 = 66/40
  • 105 = 72/43
  • 95 = 79/48
  • 75 = 100/60
  • 65 = 116/70

5000/3500 lbs. of Overhead Squats

  • 155 = 33/23
  • 145 = 35/25
  • 135 = 38/26
  • 125 = 40/28
  • 115 = 44/31
  • 105 = 48/34
  • 95 = 53/37
  • 75 = 67/47
  • 65 = 77/54
  • 55 = 91/64
  • 45 = 112/78

So much math,

So what is left…

If you haven’t been carefully logging your food and how it affects you, then you have some serious experimenting to do.  Trial and error can be the best tools to see what your body is capable of handling and what things you should completely avoid.  The best way to do that is by removing one variable at a time.  Let’s take a look…

If I wanted to see how oranges affect me, I would do some expetimenting.  I will eat the same way (or at similar as I can) for 21 days and in those 21 days, I will not have an orange or anything with orange products in it, like juice and such.  After three weeks have passed, I will reintroduce the oranges back into my diet and if I suddenly break into hives, it could be because the orange may be having some kind of a reaction with my body.  If nothing happens, then orange check out and I can move on to other foods.

If this seems tedious, then you are right!  This process can be an arduous one, but it is ultimately worth it.  Repeating this over and over can give you a gauged and calibrated understanding of how food affects you can make weight loss, general health, and physical performance much easier to improve.

And such,

Let’s clarify a few things…

There are a few foods in paleo that some may believe are in a gray area.  What about dairy?  What about sweet potatoes?  What about nuts?  Legumes?  Let’s find out…

Dairy: it contains lactose.  I know it may not affect you to a degree that it affects others, but it still contains casein, which is very similar to gluten and can act as a intestinal lining irritant.  Next…

Sweet potatoes:  Sure they have plenty of vitamins and minerals where white potatoes have none.  Still SUPER high in carbs so eat moderately.  Next…

Nuts:  Contain phytic acid and linoleic acid.  The former won’t allow you to absorb nutrients from other foods as well and the latter will increase inflammation, which is a very bad thing.  Next…

Legumes:  Even if prepared correctly, they still don’t get absorbed completely by the body, are high in carbs, and are not a complete protein.

I, again, understand that we are taking some broad strokes here, but the reality is that these foods are not optimal for an optimum diet.

And such,
