Low Carb Paleo Diet: A Neolithic Fantasy   "Are you following a “low-carb” Paleo diet?

Do you realize that Paleo and low-carb (LC) are not synonomous, and that there are no examples of LC in the Paleo literature among the population groups studied, even in the Eskimos?

After reading the above, one might start to assume that I don’t like the Paleo diet. This is not true at all. My go-to book for people making the jump to a healthier way of eating is Robb Wolf’s The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet*. I consider Robb Wolf a personal friend of mine and I truly appreciate him writing this book!"Repair Recover Restore


Winning The IT Band War

"The iliotibial (IT) band is a fibrous enhancement of the fasciae latae muscle that crosses over the side of the knee joint and adds stability to the knee. The IT band extends from the crest of the ilium to the lateral condyle of the tibia, joining the capsule of the hip joint, with the lower end passing over the edge of the lateral femoral condyle. This is the area where the lower part of the femur bulges out above the knee joint.

In more practical terms, you can feel the IT band on the outside of your thigh when you contract your leg muscles, and if you ever complain that your outer thigh is tight and painful, or experience something "snapping" on the outside of your knee when you run, you may have some stage of IT band syndrome."Tom Furman for TNation.com
