Waghalter (Lvl 7)
When co-workers noticed I was losing weight, they eventually asked what my "secret" was. At first, I tell them about eating "real" food over processed stuff, and they nod. When prodded for more details, I talk about my avoidance of (processed) grains and sugar. That's when I start to get the weird looks. Finally, the need to simplify means the word "Paleo" or something like it escapes my mouth, and that's when I get the typical: "oh, it's that caveman thing".
P90X is good (I'm a "graduate" myself), and the exercises are "legit" (as opposed to gimmicky gadgets), but I've since realized that I can get the same results with a shorter work-out, fewer times a week, and that works better for me."It is important to keep in mind that, after all is said and done, ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is a game. Because it is a game, certain things which seem "unrealistic" or simply unnecessary are integral to the system."

Peer review is not fast, but in the long run it works. If you're not using it, I'm giving you the hairy eyeball.

What page of the MM are hairy eyeballs on again?
Anyway, the point of peer review in dietary science isn't just to see if a diet helps you lose weight- because, in all honesty, most do- but to ascertain WHY you are losing weight and if it is safe. As in, are there any unexpected short or long-term deleterious effects to one's health.
It also helps determine if a given diet will tend to produce short term benefits only- leading to yo-yo weight effects- or if it is legitimately a long-term lifestyle diet that you can be on for years with no health concerns.

P90x is the first time I have worked out to a video, and I'm actually liking that a lot. Allows me to zone out a bit and not have to keep track of time. What I'm not liking about it is the old school movements that are known to be pretty risky and hard on you, like upright rows for the shoulders and all the leg raises and straight leg sit-ups. I know enough to work around them but I wish they played it safer with the exercise selection. I wouldn't be surprised if it has a significant injury rate.
