    TIME TO START THINKING ABOUT REGIONALS!! CF ATL is sending 1 team of 6 (3 men, 3 women) to Jacksonville to try and qualify a team for the crossfit games. If you have ANY LEVEL of interest to be on this team (for regionals) either write your email address down on the white board at the gym or send me an email: [email protected] . I STRESS: ANY LEVEL OF INTEREST- do not over think whether you think you’re good enough or not….this is preliminary interest we’ll do the talking later.

    Mike, I have been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD and took medications for it for years. I think that the medications commonly given for this condition are harmful, addictive, and ultimately counter-productive. I have found that whilst I still have aspects of ADD that affect me, eating a good diet that is low in sugar helps tremendously without requiring methylphenidate or amphetamines. I’m not a doctor, obviously, and certainly not a psychiatrist, so I’m not intending to give medical advice here. What I am saying is that ADD is very manageable with a low-sugar/low-carb diet and the medications have virtually zero positive effect on me in the long run.

    Dave, thanks so much for that feedback. your personal experience is exactly the kind of thing Im lookin for here. I have an eleven year old client with pretty severe adhd, but i know the severity is directly related to his diet that day. there is a lot of information out their on how sugars, dyes, grains and dairy affect these behavioral disorders. so much so that I think their effects may be analogous to gluten and celiacs. everyone to some degree has an intolerance to gluten, really celiacs patients are just extremely sensitive to it. I think anyone would admit that a twinkie chased with a blue powerade has a much different affect on their mood, thoughts, and energy, than a steak with broccoli for instance. My experience is that kids diagnosed as add
    or adhd are just far more sensitive to the affects of sugars, dyes, grains, and dairy. or anything with lectins. the short run pay off of the meds is a controlled subdued kid. the teachers tell the parents that they are much more productive. are they really more productive, or are they just less work for the teacher? the doc tells mom and dad little johnny cant focus on any one thing and his attention span is next to nothing. this may be true, but is it possible that this kid is simply processing far more information at once than the average person? how much of this creative intelligence is blunted by speed? Dan commented on how hes been told that psychotropic drugs affect moral development and the parts of the brain that control and develop reasoning. The few times I ever took adderall in college to study, i always felt mean and aggressive. I hope others will share their experiences, thoughts
    and opinions on this stuff.

    Mike,
    I currently take a fist full of xanax and klonopins before breakfast and dinner and have found that they absorb much quicker due to the lack of processed foods, breads, grains…etc in my body. If i wash them down with my typical 4-ounce shot of Gentlemen Jack it helps loosen up my joints and my back pain usually goes away. I pretty sure that ive never even begun to develop morally but i am starting to notice that I no longer view woman as objects to be conquered but as beautiful, loving , wonderful, perfect, creatures that need cuddling and holding. Thank you Paleo…and this is only day 3!!!!! Cant wait to see my moral development by the end of the month..i may even be holding the door open for some lucky (or unlucky) girl:) …BTW the above email was just a joke…plz dont take me seriously. I only take xanax..ill never take klonopins again.

    You can tell from the team pictures above who worked hard and who didn’t. For example, Queen obviously worked the hardest as indicated on his face, whereas Adrian could have probably gone another round.

    Mike, I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 11. Over the years I’ve “evened out” and am not so hyper. From what the doctor said it’s common to slow down with age. In regards to ADD, I took Ritalin for many years and stopped right before college. I started back sophomore year and have been taking it since. It’s not a miracle cure and one size does not fit all. There are many medications out there that are non-amphetamine based. I agree that diet is a large part of any lifestyle, but if the kid has legitimate problems concentrating/anxiety/etc I would strongly suggest that he and his parents speak with a professional.
    A lot of these drugs that are prescribed for ADD, anxiety, depression, etc will have the opposite and possibly adverse affects on most people that do not suffer from what they are intended to treat.
    In regards to Paleo, I’ve not gone w/o medication so I have no basis for comparison. I’ve not thought about stopping, but maybe I’ll give it a try this weekend. If you’d like I’ll be happy to speak more about this in or outside xfit.

    Adrian’s ability for speedy recovery may be seen as a positive thing in some circles.
