Everything You Know About Lactic Acid Is Wrong
Have you ever produced so much lactic acid that you just couldn’t do another rep?
Have you ever had so much lactic acid in your muscles that you could barely move the next day?
If you answered yes to either one of those questions, then you may need to read this article from Competitor.com: 6 Lies You Were Taught About Lactic Acid. There are a lot of common misconceptions around lactate/lactic acid. We have known for at least 15 years that lactic acid doesn’t cause DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), yet still to this day it is commonplace to hear someone say, “Oh man, I’m so sore. I need to flush out all the lactic acid from my workout yesterday.”
At the end of the day, does it really matter if you know exactly what lactate/lactic acid does or doesn’t do? Probably not. You’re not any physically fitter for knowing. But hey, as they say, knowledge IS power.

Vegans Gone Paleo
What do Anne Hathaway and former President Bill Clinton have in common? They both vetoed vegan diets and voted for animal protein-powered low-carb diets. Hathaway’s decision to shift to a Paleo-diet style food plan occurred just before she turned 32. Anne celebrated her birthday with husband Adam Shulman, revealed the Daily Mail.

That’s the opening paragraph in this new article, Ex-Vegans Anne Hathaway And Bill Clinton Praise Paleo-Style Low-Carb Diets For Energy And Weight Loss, on the Inquisitr. It’s funny, there are so many people who claim that Paleo is on it’s way out, but you continuously see it popping up in articles about folks from Lebron James to now Bill Clinton.
I have to say that I am not surprised that Bill Clinton has gone Paleo. I read an article a while back that talked about his “Vegan” lifestyle. He was not a vegan in the true sense of the word. He said in the article that he ate salmon once a week or so. Hey, Mr. President, fish are animals too.
I really have nothing against people who follow a vegan lifestyle. It’s something I would never choose to do, but to each his/her own. Interestingly enough, I have talked to a lot of people who told me that they are way healthier now that they have gone away from the vegan way. Food for thought.
