  1. Hello! I am of the alchemical persuasion (i.e. I am a chemist). Also, I am new to the paleo / primal lifestyle! For me this mean lots of reading, and the one thing I keep coming across which I cannot understand is phytic acid. Mostly because I was interested in the no beans / legumes part of the primal lifestyle. Can anyone share some science based articles about phytic acid? I've read several of them which are on the 'paleo' websites and they leave me with a sour taste in my mouth. Also Scopus and ENTREZ searches haven't really shown me very much. To be clear, I don't want this to s
  2. Oh my he is great! I read the first book when I was freshman and high school. I have been following him ever since! Have you read Clariel?
  3. He is great! Do you like other short stories?
  4. I think that most major cities and smaller cities have their pride in June because that has been designated as Pride Month for as long as I can remember!
  5. Hello! :-) Gay male here! Super new and fresh to the Nerd Fitness family, but it seems like it is going to be an excellent fit for me! I had a wee bit of a "DUH" moment recently... for me... Being gay is totally part of my weight loss struggles, we recently had a ten year class reunion and people submitted pictures for it, and I saw a picture of myself! Wow, I look amazing (except for the outdated clothes). Why did I feel so awkwardly fat and uncomfortable?! I think it was because I was soo in the closet (small town america can do that to a person). I wish it wasn't so, I am goin
  6. I was just thinking! I should share some of the things I love to read! Current Common Reading Material... 1. The Economist, now don't be getting any ideas about me! 2. National Geographic 3. GQ 4. Vanity Fair Books with Bookmarks in the Them... 1. Clariel, the final in a series by Garth Nix! If you haven't read his stuff go give it a read 2. In the Garden of Beast by Erik Larson, my first book by him and so far I am hooked! 3. Something Rich and Strange by Ron Rash, I love short stories! 4. Periodic Tales: A Cultural History of the Elements, from Arsenic to Zinc
  7. I have general question about receiving updates... If you want to get an email alert or something when posts happen in a feed you follow is there way to do that?
  8. I guess that I will just start with the basics, and then go from there (you guys can learn my idiosyncracies as we go on or this wouldn't be very fun?!) So to begin... Why did I think I was to cool to start the challenge with everyone else? Simple answer, it was my birthday and my birthday weekend so I knew that I would be to busy to get much done in terms of thinking productively and getting ready to start on the primal track! I think that a Week 1 goal was to post some smart goals and here are mine! MAIN GOAL: I want to lose pounds by April 1, 2016 (about 2.5 lbs per week) MINIGOAL
  9. These are the smart goals I laid out over the weekend, I was little behind the eight ball so this is just going to be a 5 week challenge for me! MAIN GOAL: I want to lose 40 pounds by April 1, 2016 (about 2.5 lbs per week) MINIGOAL:I want to establish a good sleep routine In bed by 11:00, no more media except for a physical book after 11:00 MINIGOAL:Increase from 2 strength training days to 3 strength training days a week, what metric should I use to score this goal? (I was thinking about picking out specific weights based on the recommendation of a friend, but I don't know even know a good
