Review: Theravent Snore Therapy Strips

I’m not entirely sure what’s happening with my snoring.  It’s either getting worse or the BJJ Cavewife is getting more sensitive.  Our solution of running the air purifier on the MAX setting to provide enough white noise to drown out my snoring is not enough anymore.

Somehow my snoring can now pierce through all of that white noise and stab the BJJ Cavewife’s eardrums, waking her up multiple times a night.

She responds by gently sliding her hand under my back and tenderly balling it up into a fist which in turn wakes me up and forces me to turn onto my back.… Read More

Gut Shield: Kiefer changes his tune on the gut biome… and incidentally has something new to sell

 

It’s been a while since I’ve written about anything John Kiefer related mainly because he’s largely retreated from public life.  Carb Nite and Carb Back-loading remain unchanged in their 1.0 status with version 2.0’s supposedly always around the corner but never quite materializing.  He occasionally sends out marketing e-mails whenever T3 Fuel and Carb Shock are back in stock but that’s about it.  He’s remained absent from his Body IO FM podcast which are now mainly run by his minions.  No more interesting episodes with him and Rocky where they crap on everyone else in the industry.… Read More

Review: RxBar

 

One of the BJJ Cavewife’s biggest problems is that she has a habit of not eating enough and at times out right skips meals.  Her mornings can get hectic and she’ll run out of time to prepare something for breakfast so she’ll just rush out of the house without eating anything leaving her famished until lunch rolls around.

This problem also presents itself when she goes to BJJ or Crossfit.  She’ll be time crunched and skip out on eating something before the workout and find herself light headed in the middle of a WOD or roll.… Read More

The Whole30

whole-30

Our Crossfit gym recently ran a group Whole 30 Challenge and invited us to join. It was a way to get people motivated and excited about eating healthy in the setting of a supportive community.

They created a private Facebook group where members could pose questions, show off their latest Whole 30 approved culinary creations, or just whine about all the goodies that we missed while doing the challenge.

The BJJ Cavewife and I were both enthusiastic about participating. While we generally ate healthily, we had been getting more lax with our eating habits since the cross country move.… Read More

Kimera Koffee Review

 

kimera-koffee

I first heard about Kimera Koffee in a sponsored ad on the Ben Greenfield podcast.  Ben espoused the benefits of having nootropics in coffee and how great he felt when he drank this.  He even took to sprinkling in additional boosts like chaga mushroom powder and various other things that created a super potion for him.

After hearing him talk about this enough times, my mind inexplicably went from, “you’re not going to catch me with your fancy marketing” to “hmmm maybe there’s something to this, why not give it a try?”

I swear I really must be a podcast marketers dream.… Read More

Breezing Metabolism Tracker Review

breezing-1a

This is a review of the handheld Breezing Metabolism Tracker.

After my recent series on the Biggest Loser 6 year followup study and my deep dive into the world of calculated resting metabolic rates (RMR), I started wondering about my own metabolism.

I had it measured before in 2013 at the Cleveland Clinic with a research grade metabolic cart.

The protocol was similar to the one used in the Biggest Loser Study: they placed me in a dark room, had me lie down, strapped a facemask on me, told me to relax, and instructed me to breath normally for 30 minutes without falling asleep.… Read More
