Food Porn – Bacon Explosion

Josh PalmerKnowledge Is Power, Nutrition13 Comments

I couldn’t think of a more fitting concoction than this mound of porky goodness to kick of the ‘Paleo Food Porn‘ posts on this blog. The ‘Bacon Explosion‘ has been around for some time now (http://www.bbqaddicts.com/blog/recipes/bacon-explosion/) but rarely have I seen anyone in this country actually attempt to make one. This may be because actually getting the main component (really … Read More

Josh PalmerBJJ, Grappling Events, TrainingLeave a Comment

Wow, every so often something great comes along and tries to shake up the standard outlets for our fantastic but still niche sport. The next one is this: the Metamoris Pro BJJ event.

Josh PalmerKnowledge Is PowerLeave a Comment

I don’t read as much as I should and I go through spates of frantically devouring books every week to never seeing a printed word for a few months! Either way I’m generally happiest when I’m consuming some sort of educational or thought provoking material. The one thing I don’t read is fiction. The current read: ‘Bounce: The Myth of … Read More

No Arguments – Blogs Are Awesome

Josh PalmerKnowledge Is Power, Nutrition, Random Thoughts, TrainingLeave a Comment

People have a lot of varying views on the value of blogs – particularly in the nutrition and training realm where there seem to be so many conflicting ideals not to mention that dreaded over-bearing shadow: conventional wisdom! I know some who think everything not printed in a text book is just ‘Broscience’ and haven’t quite accepted that a lot … Read More

Josh PalmerNutrition, TrainingLeave a Comment

I’m a member of the Nerd Fitness forums, a site dedicated to nerds/geeks from all walks of life to come together and treat their lives like a computer game, leveling up 6 weeks at a time.

I can admit, I am prone to knee-jerk reactions. Thankfully they last all of a matter of seconds before I digest the real implications of whatever just happened. But this one has me firmly split down the middle… As I mention in my back story, I had a pretty significant way of commemorating the combined landmarks of 100lbs weight loss … Read More
