17 Push-Ups to Make You Paleo Fit

In this list, we've covered the basics and some common variations, as well as a few quite challenging ones. Feel free to substitute any of these variations into the PaleoFit workouts where push-ups are programmed—You ARE … Continue reading

Stand Up for Good Posture

Posture Is More Than Standing Straight Good posture means good health. Having good posture helps you exude confidence, poise, and even sexiness.

Should You Skip Your Holiday Workouts?

We've got a big meal coming up (not to mention a whole string of holiday parties and events), and even if you're going to do your best to stay Paleo this Thanksgiving, there's still a very good chance that there may be a little tendency to overdo it. And it has nothing to do with pumpkin pie, I swear. I'm here to help. Well, to help you help yourself. Now, I'm not here to give you a magical workout pill that … Continue reading

How Not Exercising Obsessively Is Improving My Life

I have a confession to make. I haven't deliberately exercised in 17 days. I just carried my duffel bag and backpack, which tipped the scales at a whopping 20 pounds, through Denver International Airport for 25 minutes and realized that's the hardest I've worked in over 2 weeks. I'm feeling lazy. Unmotivated. And I'm busy with other things. And I think some of you--namely the fanatical exerciser types among you--should try this out for a while, too. Generally I climb … Continue reading

Move Your Butt. Win Cool Stuff.

Here's one easy workout you could do... I'll admit it. I'm not doing the 30-day challenge with you guys. I have a good excuse, though! My diet is pre-tty darn Paleo, I already feel awesome, and I'm at a weight I really like. It's taken me a while, but thanks to eating this way, I can say that now. What I AM working on during these 30 days (and beyond) is physical training. I may not have resolved on January … Continue reading

Fatigue and Belly Fat, Continued

After my last post, Q&A: Fatigue and That Pesky Belly Fat, I received a message from the member who originally wrote in with the question.

She answered some of my questions from the post, and gave us more details about her situation. Dear Neely, Thank you so … Continue reading

Q&A: Fatigue and That Pesky Belly Fat

A member recently wrote us in response to my recent post, Paleo for the Active Person, and I thought some of you might be able to relate. Q: I’m stuck. I haven’t lost weight (belly fat) in two months. I strictly eat Paleo via the plan everyday… week after week and now month after month. I walk and was even going to the gym… until the low energy got the better of me. I have hypothyroidism… and according to my … Continue reading
