Orc65 intro
« on: August 25, 2006, 04:36:15 PM »
Hi guys (that includes all you women as well, I am an equal opportunity name caller) :)
I am a middle aged (41) wage slave :) , with a lovely wife, a son (age: 20) and daughter (age: 16), (started early, :) ).
I discovered the site while looking up anthropology, how I got here from there, I'm not exactly sure but it was an eye opener.
What I read on the theory of the Paleo diet made perfect sense to me, particularly in regard to the relationship between our diet and autoimmune disorders. So I've adopted the WOE and sort of summarily decided that my family will adopt it as well, much to my daughters chagrin. :)
While I am not being as strict as some of you, I am allowing dairy and potatoes. My reasoning is purely based on the fact that none of my family is Lactose Intolerant, hence we have adapted to dairy in our diet, and the literature on potatoes seems to indicate that they are excluded purely because they are a new world food and didn't enter our diet until a few centuries ago. (I will however reduce our rate of consumption on these).
Please feel free to correct me if I am misinformed.
As for my work out history. While I have played Australian Rules, Cricket, Soccer, Rugby League, Rugby Union (Game of Champions) :) , Basketball, Volleyball, Netball, Hockey and have been a member of several Medieval Recreation Groups, (not really any good at them, but I had a lot of enthusiasm) :)
I've been fairly inactive over the last 10 years, mainly limiting myself to cycling to and from work (roughly 20-30 km), and intermittent efforts at running (2-5km).
Never been a gym goer, but have always tried to do some exercise on a daily basis, this plus my work has kept me relatively fit, when compared to my mates, who all have office jobs and have packed on the kilos, still I fight a never ending battle against the evil spare tyre (insert super hero name here ............................   :) ), during winter it gets the upper hand, but starts retreating during the summer, (weight fluctuates between 100 and 109 kg annually).

On this site. The support is great, the individual opinions are informative and show that they are well thought out and usually have some references available to support them. Members are friendly and helpful. Information in the form of Links or book references are plentiful.
Thank you again Eric for setting this up.

Excuse me while I kill and eat this steak. :)

My body may be old, but according to my wife I still act and think like a 5 year old :)
