Cavemen life span and paleo way of eating

I've changed the way I eat in the past 2 years. I've eliminated grains and sugar (artificial sweeteners included). I've talked about paleo diets, paleo way of eating - now I'm reading Practical Paleo - there are other books I've read; but, one thing has been in the back of my mind through all of this. I've seen, heard, read that paleo is eating like the cavemen ate. The thought I couldn't quite grasp was that the life span of cavemen wasn't very long.

LAST CUP OF MOTIVATION: "As a leader you should always start with where people are before you try to take them to where you want them to go." -- Jim Rohn

FINDING ACTIVITY

 We all lead busy lives. Between work, family and the time we spend helping others, we have little time to devote to our health and wellness. This can lead to stress and weight gain, two factors that often go hand-in-hand. However, we can start to reverse this by just being more active. 

Inside Out Fitness's "Athlete of the Month" February 2013

Julie is our "Athlete of the month" for February 2013! Many people ask me what it takes to get this distinction and I tell them that I need to be able to tell a great health and fitness story. Well, Julie has just the ticket! I have been training Julie for over a year and she ALWAYS shows up regardless if she is feeling like it or not. She always gives everything a try even though she doesn't always think she can do it.

Night Cap!

I have found that we need to surround ourselves with people with the positive attitudes and desire to succeed. One of the best quotes I can think of came from Jim Rohn.

Survival of the Fittest

 February is heart month, and not just because Valentine’s Day is right in the middle of it. According to a 2009 statistic of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is still the # 1 killer for women in the United States with 24%, followed by ALL cancers with 22% and stroke with 6%. 

Lifestyle choices and our health

Lifestyle choices are by far the biggest factor that affect our health.  According to the U.S. Surgeon General, 83% of deaths before the age of 65 are preventable with lifestyle change. I've heard it all...from "I'm going to die anyway, so I'm going to eat what I want" and people continue to smoke even after they've had heart disease.  Why?  Why wouldn't someone want to make better choices for their body?
