(BPT) - An ever increasing body of academic research is showing that the current level of salt Americans consume is not only perfectly healthy but that adopting low-salt recommendations will actually harm people. The most recent example of this is a review of all available research on salt and health by the Institute for Medicine (IOM).
One of the questions I get regularly asked about my Paleo diet is how I can survive in America's bread basket without bread. This actually has been kind of a challenge for me, but not because I miss the taste of bread.
(BPT) - Only 8 percent of people who make New Year's resolutions actually achieve their goals, according to a recent study by the University of Scranton. This year, instead of making a promise to lose weight, make small but impactful changes to the way you eat to ensure you reach your resolution goal.
The Friday before Christmas we had a "treat your coworker day" - basically a food sharing day. I expected a lavish spread of sweets, to which I was prepared to avoid. I, of course, brought Paleo alternatives - good but not sweet.

Great Bend Tribune Managing Editor Dale Hogg and his wife, Volunteers in Action Volunteer Coordinator Linn Hogg, have embarked on this two-month lifestyle change experiment as a couple. This is their final update on how it all went.
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Office workers in search of snacks will be counting calories along with their change under new labeling regulations for vending machines included in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law.
A few weeks ago, I sent out a request to all of you to send me your best soup recipes. After going through the first real cold snap, I realized that my soup recipe collection was woefully lacking on soups acceptable on the Paleo diet. Most of the soups I make are loaded with noodles, dumplings or beans, which I must confess, I thoroughly enjoy.
This week was a hard one. I lost one more pound since last week's column (up to 22 of the 40 I set out to lose). With my pregnancy finally out of the closet, I can admit that my saving grace in sticking to the rules this week has been nausea. You would think that a persistent aversion to food would help boost the weight loss. However, eating less doesn't always mean losing more.

After my first month of Paleo, I decided to add back some dairy products. Now, before anyone gets too excited, that means hard cheese, butter and cream. It also still means that when mixed with non-Paleo ingredients, they are still on the banned list, so, no ice cream. Of course, after this cold snap, who is really in the mood for that? But, I wonder if I can figure out a way to make Paleo powdered sugar ... I could go really go for a maple-walnut truffle.

Going on an adventure with your favorite four-legged buddy is always a great time. However, sometimes we don’t remember the little things when we’re having all that fun. Whether it’s during the car camping trips or the multi-day journey, below is a list the things you might need to make your trek a little easier.
I ran my first marathon a week before my youngest daughter turned one. Never in her memory has there been a time when I didn’t dress primarily in spandex, consume copious amounts of gels and energy chews, or spend the dark early hours of a Saturday morning out on a run. It was after one of these long runs that I returned to find Ali, who was three at the time, on her stomach rolling back and forth over a foam roller. When I asked what she was doing she simply said, “Playing mommy.” In her eyes, this is ...

Does stretching reduce sports injuries? This question is a hot topic with much debate and conflicting evidence. I will present a few studies and then make my recommendation based on experience. I have run four marathons and countless other long distance races and have some insight on this topic. I am also a chiropractor and treat many sports-related injuries.
