Another good infographic, this time on barefoot running. The human foot is the result of hundreds of thousands of years of evolution and shoe technology is not going to improve upon it that much… more likely it interferes with proper foot function. That being said, humans didn’t traditionally run on concrete or other very hard surfaces either, so certain concessions must be made. Get a shoe that allows for natural foot mechanics and proprioception, but has enough cushioning to protect your feet. Start of at shorter distances, progress to longer runs.

This is a great visual representation of how to eat well. If you haven’t read Paul Jaminet’s book, it’s in my top two for books to read on nutrition. Check it out here: Perfect Health Diet.

I was recently sent this Infographic on the hazards of going to a hospital. I do my best to stay out of them, and this is even more reason to do so. Note that I still recommend going to the hospital if you get shot, stabbed, rabies, or any other major acute health concern.

We got the first “Dietary Guidelines for Americans” in 1980. Look at the changes in rates of obesity starting in… 1980.

I had an article published in Eric Cressey’s newsletter in August, called Why You Should Never Take Nutrition Advice from Your Government. In case you missed it, check it out.

It generated quite a bit of controversy, over 40 comments on the article, dozens on facebook, and over 15 emails. Check out the comments thread for some hilarity.
