The reasons for going Paleo are multitudinous, running the gamut from disease elimination to exercise optimization and everything in between. With its inflammation crushing power, Paleo is able to handle these tasks with ease, which is why it can be easy to forget that Paleo is the perfect solution to the everyday problem of weight loss.

The sad fact is that two out of three adults in the U.S. are obese or overweight, a situation that’s due in no small part to the calorie-rich and nutrient-poor Standard American Diet (SAD). We live in a world where pizza is classified as a vegetable, canola oil is considered “heart healthy” and everything is washed down with soda, so simply going Paleo and ditching all that junk can often be enough to get to a healthy weight.

Sometimes you need a little more help, however, and that’s where we come in. By joining forces with top Paleo experts like Mark Sisson, Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf and Jason Seib, Paleo Magazine is providing you with the ultimate guide to losing weight with Paleo.   Continue Reading…

“Stop. Before we do anything else, we need to build trust with a hug.”

I nervously giggled and we hugged.

“No, stop patting each other on the back. This is a hug.”

We hugged a second time, and I resisted the urge to pat. Instead, my hand reverted to a light rub.

This was the first time I had ever tried AcroYoga, and was lucky enough to have Dylan Werner as my base.

Dylan Werner is an incredibly accomplished yogi, and over the past few months of working with his material, I knew he could perform superhuman feats of strength such as planche push-ups without breaking a sweat.

I was in good hands. It would not be difficult (I thought) to trust him as my base.

That all went out the window when we actually started the AcroYoga practice. He placed his feet on my hips, and instructed me to lean forward.

I leaned forward a few inches, and promptly shrieked in fear. Continue Reading…
