The legions of marketing mavens hawking running shoes will tell you a
heel strike is safe with their shoes on, but some scientists happen to
vehemently disagree. The controversy over this subject can be as heated
as the ideal-diet debate. Dr. Daniel Lieberman is a professor of human evolutionary biology at
Harvard University and an avid runner. His research on human evolution
and accident prevention has led him to believe in—as well as utilize—the
forefoot running pattern.

Yippee! Cost of Government Day was Aug 19 this year, and is now behind us.  Per Americans For Tax Reform, the total cost of government at local, state, & federal levels is now 63% of national income.

    Can you take whey protein PWO on paleo?

    This question has come up a couple of times on the crossfit mainsite boards (board.crossfit.com). Everyone agrees whey protein powder isn’t paleo (technically it is dairy). Two schools of thought here: one, if you are getting better results and aren’t dairy sensitive, use it anyway. Two, you shouldn’t be drinking your calories anyway. I’m in the first school of thought.
    There are a bunch of alternative (and expensive) protein powders available — Mark’s Daily Apple discusses them here: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/whey-egg-white-casein-pea-hemp-rice-protein-powder-supplement/
    and you might want to look at the companion article here: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/whey-isolate-concentrate-hydrolysate/
