Andrew, I think Charles was fond of you and I just do not believe if this ever has anythink to do with raw or cooked (like all the others mention) as long as members don't go on and on about raw/cooked (you don't)...

Hey, I had a friend named "Andrew" who wanted to be my friend, so I thought it was the "Andrew" from this forum. Turns out, this guy was a spammer and all he sent was pornography links! I unfriended him!

Rawzi- I agree (I think) but why has it taken 3 years and not two years? and my hayfever doesn't come back even if I cheat? How come IBS comes back with even one little  ;) cheat? weird

    Healing fully can take a long time.  That may be why.  If you cheated long enough, the hayfever would possibly come back too.  The IBS possibly gets affected first because it's due to what you're eating, and food is more likely to touch your bowel more than your sinuses.  What part of your body is affected can also be due to other factors besides food, which can change in each person with time, even if a doctor says not.  You may have other work to do to heal in addition to food and exercise, and I don't mean herbs.

Completed a number of triathalons/adventure races/ocean swims recently. Feeling fitter and got back into deadlifts and squats also. 
 
Doing well all round. Ate fish for the first time in a while (years?) not a fan.

My brothers an RPDer and he's become noticably taller over the last year, I would say at least an inch probably more. He's taller than me now he's also doing (proper)40kg dips 3x8 @70?kg not bad! The only difference is he eats wild meats while I eat domestic. He's 30. I'm 32.

I had a high speed head on collision on a country road on Monday night with a highly medicated woman. 

I feel like I cheated death and have been laying really low, don't really want to tempt fate?

If you can please post the video, I think it'll be a nice addition to the exercise collection.

He maybe up for it, he is very busy though. Way to busy to even go on this forum.

He does one armed pull ups as well.

On the height thin he puts it down to heavy weight training has helped his posture.

Hope you didn't get too damaged by that crash. My own recent experience re accidents has made me less trusting of other sportsmen, whereas before I thought I could always avoid such incidents.

Mine was Jan. 2006 with a teenager who knew not how to drive on frozen slush. Thought I had a broken rib, but it was just a bad bruise from the shoulder belt. 130+ km/h. Car was written off.

Not the first time I survived by a miracle, meaning not my plan (the airbag worked).

I like the idea that we die when time's up, and can do damn near anything before that and get away with it.

She was on coming, crossed onto my side of the road I swerved just enough and we side swiped both at 100km/hr . I went off the road and thats where my car was wrecked hitting a sign and then into the the bush. Walked away.
I had just had a motorbike lesson that day plus I hadn't eaten all day so I was superfocused, that saved me.

Back in late Feb I injured my back squatting very deeply. I'm gutted really, felt like I stretched it. When I did that deep weighted squat my back cracked and stretched and felt such a relief.The main problem I have now Is have difficulty sitting for long periods and get extremely stiff on long drives and takes about a minute to stand up straight once I get out of the car, I look like an old man.

I'm really annoyed that even sitting causes problems. I'm totally fine working, can still surf and run with no problems but any sitting causes real problems. Mountain biking sets it off slightly.

I'm back on strict diet to help me get over this problem, I also want to solve some work problems as well as I want to rule out any possible psychosomatic causes.

I''ve resigned to complete rest for my back issues. 3 months of trying to ease back into excercise hasn't worked and has caused me more probs. I just can't sit in anywaY whether in a car seat or at a desk or on my bike or kayak.

I kneel at my work desk or tilt my laptop so I can stand up, luckily I don't work at a desk much.

Eating heaps of marrow at the moment... also eating brains...they make me smart..arse..ish. Had crazy dreams too like cargo liners falling out of the sky.

I would have thought you needed massage therapy or 1 of the related alternative-medicine approaches. There's only so much a diet can do, however high-quality.

I haven't got that far yet and b elieve alternate therapists are 99% con artists.


I have resigned myself to the fact I may have to quit racing mountain bikes and weight training and I will live.

I haven't discounted psychosomatic cause due to recent work stress.

Quit all exercise and start doing zhan zhuang. It involves just standing without movement and just being aware of your body. You will heal this in less than 2 months. Don't be fooled by its simplicity, it's much harder than you can imagine. Just wait when your legs start shaking after just a couple minutes. You start 10 min a day and build up to 30-45 min over a course of couple weeks. Your internal power will grow daily and you will feel it. This is the best book to learn the practice. You should give it a try.

PaleoPhil brought up the the positive thinking thing

I'm not a fan of positive thinking, it doesn't work and the human subconscious is way to smart to fall for that crap and for that matter I'm definitely against positive thinking for seriously ill people as they will probably feel worse when their positive thinking fails to heal them.

I believe the subconscious and hidden emotions can cause havoc on the body, I've long believed it's at least 50% of your healthiness. The subconscious can create illness for secondary pay off eg not cleaning your house/or getting a job or distracting you from the fact you really don't want to marry your GF. The more intelligent/creative you are, the greater the ability of your subconscious is at distracting you from what you really need to sort out. Unfortunately the more intelligent/creative your are the more misery your face compared to the average chump!

The solution is to eat well and then to uncover what's bothering you or your putting off, unfortunately the last part is fucking hard.

I've gone back to sports that I stopped because of back pain. I still have the pain but I ignore it and it's disappearing.

It's a distraction for my mind. When things are going well my mind sabotages me.

The pain didn't make sense...first of all it moved around which is weird. My back would seize up and I would have to spend a couple of minutes getting out of a car...but only when I worked with a couple of people I don't like. Then I would go for a surf and be totally fine! WTF surfing uses the most violent movements and your back twists and bends.

Tricks that the unconscious use are anxiety/headaches/backache/RSI/CFS whatever is currently in fashion really. I've heard things like allergies are caused by repressed rage which I agree with but it's only about half the equation, diet helps as well (a lot)

Back pain is gone and when I get a tinge I purposely sit incorrectly or lift badly and totally ignore the phantom twinges etc.

I always thought it was ridiculous when people say they hurt their back bending down to pick up key or something really soft then I'd see them playing football or something. It's pschocological pain directed to parts of your body.

I've crashed into anxiety over the last 9 months, it slowly crept up on me until I was totally ill. Mostly because of external influences but also the cheating Ive done over the last 9 months (both have gone hand in hand) I want to take a break and just chill, I've worked 4 years straight (wow you must be thinking! but hard work for some else is dumb and I've never liked working) I want to spend some time in the sun. I've got a business idea so I could chase that fulltime. Start a new hobbie. Go travel or even a staycation. I'm motorbiking around OZ next year but I'm ready to go NOW

Feeling better. Back on track with everything. Been doing small chores around the house (the anxiety cure), got rid of my wrecked car too.

Freezer full of Grass Fed organs, Beef cheek, ox tail and tongue.

Did some deadlifts today and was fine.

Got a cleansing surf in too.

Feel human again  :)

Resigned from my job to start a new position (I was too good for that joint  ;) ). I like the owner who interviewed me, looked me in the eye...I like that...he pretty much hired me on the spot. I'm looking forward to a new field, I want to work with confident people.

Interesting to see what they do for lunches/dinners/friday drinks. I'll be one the road mostly so I'll have jerky, water.

Every year a compete in a 10km off road race, beat my PB by a whopping 4 minutes! 50.11 down to 46.03min. This is not just running but rock scrambling, steep hills/descents
