A theoretical interaction exists, but should this impact your decision to eat steamed broccoli? Next, I explain why I recommend one, maybe two days of sprinting a week, in contrast to the exercise studies that often use 3 or 4 days/week sprinting programs to great success. Then, I give a few tips for a person wondering about getting sufficient sources of Primal protein while on an Orthodox Lent fast. And finally, I explore the potential health effects of saunas./p

pFirst, that we don#8217;t know what our ancestors were truly eating./p
pSecond, that there wasn#8217;t just one paleo diet./p

pBefore I address these, I want to make an important point. The anthropological record provides a framework for further examination of nutritional science; it does not prescribe a diet. It gives us somewhere to start so we#8217;re not flailing blind men dropped off in the middle of a strange city. That is why we#8217;re interested in what early man ate (and didn#8217;t eat)./p
