  1. Hi! A friend of mine uses a natural supplement called bee bread (naturally fermented bee pollen). He contends it is very potent and beneficial for any kind of sports and a few academic researches I've found seem to support his thesis. I consider trying it as well, but it is not exactly cheap, so I am still doubtful.Has anyone tried it themselves and if yes, what are your experiences and opinions? It also undergoes natural fermentation in hives, so could it supplement a paleo diet? Thank you.
  2. June 1, 7:39 am Today is the day that I woke up eager to start the reset and upgrade of my life. My Motivational playlist playing, my inspiring pictures flashing on my background, water bottle within my reach and my energy eager to go. 20 body weight squats 10 push ups 20 walking lunges 10 dumbbell rows (using a gallon milkjug) 15 second plank 30 Jumping Jacks The beginners Workout. I only did one set, and that's O.K. I am getting my body ready for more sets in the very near future. After the workout. I like the idea of taking a set of photos on the 1st of the mon
  3. Hello, my name is Patrick and I found Nerd Fitness while at work. I love the philosophy behind treating life and fitness like a video game, and because of my experiences in Asia and fascination with the spiritual I'm torn if I should go down the path of the Monk (I'd love to learn Taekwondo and there are several dojos in my city) or meditate to become a Druid (I've always been fascinated by yoga and tai chi and wanted to get more in to them). I'm definitely not adverse to strength training or weight lifting, but am not yet ready to take the plunge and join a gym just yet, I want to clearly
  4. 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
  5. Hi! My name is Cheyanna Miller and I'm 18 years old. I'm a hobbit, it's as simple as that. I'm 5'3 and 245. I love food. My goal is to lose 100 pounds overall, but my short term goal is to lose 15 pounds in the next six week challenge. Another goal is to cut out all soda and sweets from my diet. I am going to be starting the Paleo diet to help put my diet on track. I want to be an Assassin. It's going to be a lot of hard work and dedication, but I am ready for the challenge! 👊
  6. Everyone falls sometimes. Take it from me. Six months ago, nothing could harm me. I was rocking 50 pull ups and 200 pushups a day and have the least % body fat in my life-- then I switched my workout the maintained my muscle mass. Since the beginning of the last challenge, I kept losing weight. I was forever hungry. Then I kept losing muscles, my strength, and my mind. Relationships fell out of places. Even my best friends pulled away-- my work was on halt. I sat in front of computer several hours a day and got no work done at all. The worst was my heart. My heart wanted to leave my che
  7. Hello Everyone! So I was around last summer, and lost base. So here I am. Starting over. A bit about me: My name is Taylor. I'm in my fourth year at Purdue University, and basically my life is planes (along with all my fandoms... Dr. Who... Sherlock..... Harry Potter..... Game of Thrones... lots of stuff). I stress eat. I bored eat. I basically just eat a lot. So I'm in this for the long haul. I'm trying to really take my time and get healthy. I need lifestyle changes. I weigh more than I did last summer, and am in even worse shape. But here it goes. Main Quest: To graduate from co
  8. The Story: After the spy mission in Seven Kingdoms, Phytomancer learns that he needs to find the locations of rain gardens, the shrines of the rain god Viruna, hidden in 4 modern US cities, then learn the secrets of its magic. At the same time, the potent mantra will tax his energy. Like other magics, the power of the gods are secret to humans, and if a human yeilds this magic without training, their muscles will turn to willowy grass and their stomach will swell. (No-- his stomach already begins to expand like a balloon!) Slowly, he will turn into a potbelly monster, rendering the knowle
  9. Samaiya finished feeding the baby and laid him down for his nap so that she might straighten up the house. As she worked, she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror. She stopped working and faced it fully. She appraised herself with a mix of nostalgia and remorse as she realized that the last month of work had come to make hardly any difference. Granted the last week or so she hadn't been as vigilant in her training. "You are just not one of those lucky ladies who bounce right back, are you?" She whispered to herself. "Don't be so hard on yourself." Samaiya jumped as her husband s
  10. So, I've tried a new "diet" regimen to jumpstart my progress. I've stalled in my motivation, and needed a kick in the tush. Mon/Tues, Thurs/Fri = Strict-ish paleo. No dairy, no grains. Sugars from fruit/veg only. I will eat peanuts, though. (Not peanut butter, unsalted peanuts in a nut mix for example). Sat/Sun and Wed = Free, healthy eating. A little pasta is okay, as are things like cheese and milk in my coffee Here's my reasoning: I don't believe in setting myself up for failure. Committing to 24/7 paleo is currently not realistic for the state of my willpower. I literally lasted
  11. It was on 4/2/2014 that I became a member of the nerd fitness family. When I started I weighed 83kg and I was overweight for a guy who is just 5'5''(165cm) tall, I simply had enough of being out of shape and promised myself that I was going to do something about it. Back then I could barely even do a push up and my CV fitness was horrendous. After spending quite a few hours exploring the vast amount of free resources nerd fitness had to offer (and still does); plus some more research reading literature recommended by nerd fitness and its wonderful members I set myself a routine. I adopted th
  12. I am planning on starting the Paleo "diet" on Sunday (I need to wait until after payday to go grocery shopping.) I have grass fed beef for free, my family owns a farm. What else should I get at the store? When I go, my cabinets are going to be pretty much bare so I need to stock up.
  13. Im not trying to lose weight, or bodybuild. I just want to look good, while feeling good. And im doing the looking good part, but i eat terrible, so i was thinking about paleo or intermittent fasting. whats you guys opinion?
  14. Ok just have a question Re: The Paleo Diet. My 1st goal: Eat a Diabetic healthy diet to get my Blood Sugars back in check. I was just wondering if anybody out there has already combined the two and what success (or pitfalls) have they had. Also anyone who has any ideas or feedback on the matter please give it. Thanks in advance, Probie
  15. HER JOURNEY BEGINS … The calm before the storm always starts with a classic story around a fireplace. While my home doesn't contain a fireplace, I have an unhealthy addiction to candles that could turn into a hefty fireplace if all burnt at once … so let us use those whilst I tell my story. I'm digging that cheese-ball introduction. Hello all! My name is Infinitely North, but you can call me Stacey. I'm a first timer to the Nerd Fitness Rebellion from the great white north of Canada. I found Nerd Fitness only a week ago, so I'm rather thrilled at my spectacularly awesome sense for
  16. I thought that since a lot of people are wanting to live a Paleo lifestyle. It would great if people could share cooking websites that they've found. http://paleomg.com I've tried a few of the recipes on this website, and they simple but delicious.
  17. For the next six weeks I am going to focus on prioritizing my health with the goal of running my first 5k Nov 23rd. To get there, I will run three days a week, strength train three days a week, and stretch after warming up and cooling down. (In the past I have made excuses for skipping stretching,). Most importantly, I will stop saying yes to various activities, commitments, whatevers that take away from the time I need to focus on my health!! Yahhooooo Let's Dooooo Thiiiiiis!
  18. I've been loosely following the paleo diet for probably 3 or 4 months now but I'm coming across some consistent problems (lets call them enemies) that I'm having trouble slaying. I was hoping for some feedback from anyone willing to weigh in. Before I get into my opposition, I want to give a quick background, I started at 297 lbs., currently I'm 220. I love junk food and I hate the feeling I have after eating it. I also really enjoy the paleo diet as well. I want to enlist in the Marines and this is my main motivation for losing weight. I recently joined a local MMA gym and plan to utilize t
  19. Well, here I go with my first challenge. I work in an ER so I don't have the usual hours that most people do with the added bonus of super stress and long work hours. (Holidays, what holidays?) So getting to do things for me is a bit harder than it might be if I had a 9-5 job. I also come for a very carb addicted (and subsequently overweight) family We're also goddamn pack rats. So I'm trying to break the cycle of hoarding and weight issues. I've actually developed into a bit of a runner - my younger self would never ever believe this - and am signed up for a 5k in the end of August. There is
  20. Hello Nerds! I just read a recipe about homemade almond milk. And now i'm thinking about whey protein with almond milk. Is ok drink whey protein for a paleo follower? I mean, maybe a paleo whey? *laughs* []'s
  21. Hello Fellow Rebels (that's fun to say =P) Smilen here with a pre 3 week update and some pictures! I had started a 3 week challenge to change my diet and work out every day because I had joined in the festivities of Nerd Fitness halfway through the current challenge period. Instead of waiting, I decided to take some action and get some habits going (21 days toward habit creation right?) So, come this Friday 7/12, I will have 3 weeks of consistently eating Paleo (with 1 or 2 slips ups that left me feeling pretty sick) and doing the body weight workout along with Intervals every other day (w
  22. Hello Everyone, I'm new to nerd fitness but i'm excited to start this 6 week challenge with you guys. Here are my 4 smart goals. Drop 4 % body Fat. Eat 100% Paleo for 6 weeks. Run 6 sprints before lifting. Lift heavy. Record my progress along the way.

  23. The Wolf is BACK!!!! AHHHHHHHHHROOOOOOO! Hello everyone As most of you know, 2013 has not been a very kind year to me... SO FAR. BUT, I'm an assassin-warrior who gets stronger with each passing day. I generally have a positive outlook on everything and according to my friends and family, I'm one hilarious mofo! I like to keep things light, have a good time, laugh, workout, eat right, and spend time with my son, Racer. He's my whole world, and I love the lil guy to death! I also have another baby due, April 11th!! I can't wait!! We don't know if we're having a boy or girl but the name
  24. Newbie here at NerFitness! I've been researching and slowly transitioning my diet and exercise for a healthier lifestyle. Let me know if I'm doing this wrong. Ha. I've been on WW for almost a year now, lost about 9 lbs on the plan. But, I noticed I was doing it wrong. I was still eating a lot unhealthy things by sacrificing meal points for junk, drinking too much, and not getting movement in my daily life (I have a desk job, wah wah). I'm ready for greater things! ME NOW: (I attached my first progress photo) Height: 5' tall (cough cough, 5' short) Weight: 125 lbs Waist: 26.5" Hips: 38" Neck:
  25. I've been hovering around the Nerd Fitness world for several months now, but this is my first time really engaging. It's also my first real use of a forum, so I'm excited to join this network of like-minded individuals. As with many people, in high school I was incredibly athletic. A multi-sport player, I even got to a point my senior year where I was so dedicated to fitness that I could even see the muscle definition in my abs. That all ended once I decided to ditch sports in favor of hard core academia in college. In addition to gaining lots of knowledge in college, I unfortunately als
