    10 minutes into the podcast and the book is already in my cart!! I can’t wait to read more about this stuff! Hopefully I can temper some of the damage I’m doing to myself with this desk job.

  • Brian Beaven says:

    Great interview!!! I’ve got my book ordered and its already shipped!!!

  • Bram says:

    “Sitting is the new smoking.”

  • Anoop says:

    Kelly Starrett: just another example of fear mongering and pseudoscience.

    And since you are all about evolutionary approach. How many ancestors thought about flexing their abs, their glutes, arching their back, and keeping their toes neutral? when standing and sitting?

    • Emily Dewey says:

      Interesting take Anoop. Perhaps the idea is more that due to current lifestyles (sitting, minimal movement etc), we are not utilizing our bodies in the way they were originally designed. Thanks for your feedback. – Emily, FBM Team

  • Anoop says:

    Thanks Emily!

    What Kelly says clearly contradicts the current science of pain. what he says have no evidence and we have been using the biomechanical model of pain for almost 20-30 years! In fact, we have a lot of evidence against and how it is harmful!

    I thought the defense for paleo diet was and is that we have adapted to our ancestor’s diet and we haven’t had enough time to adapt the western diet. But it changed somehow when it comes to out muscle and tissues??

    Anoop, while that is a good point for many people that promote paleo, I don’t feel like that’s relevant to the way Abel justifies or promotes it. His argument is based much more on staying away from unprocessed food, eating things that were recently alive, and being aware of what your food was eating (i.e. Grass fed versus corn fed, pesticides versus organic farming, etc). I would also like to point out that the ways your muscles respond to stimuli is very different than the relationship your digestive system has with food, so it’s entirely possible that your muscles can’t adapt to a change but your gut can, and vice versa –although I’m just speaking generally. I don’t claim to be any sort of expert on Dr Kelly’s theory, and you certainly may have information I don’t. I’m just saying that as a community, I think we should be less dogmatic and more open to change IF that change proves to be beneficial. ?
