You Should Never Go To Paleo FX…
….. you would rather skip the gun show.
When attending a convention such as this, you know you will be surrounded by others that truly care about their health which makes the view rather enjoyable 🙂
Check out this article by Heather Juergensen at TheStrongWoman.net and see if you can guess which gun belongs to who!
Don’t go to Paleo Fx if you you hate cheaters.
No I am not talking about cheaters in the traditional sense like when your brother lies to you in a game of battle ship… every, single, time (true story) or when you cheat on your diet by downing a bag of marshmallows…(um…I plead the 5th). I am talking about the many high quality, performance optimization supplements for the mind and body that give you an advantage over someone not taking these awesome physiological upgraders. I am talking about supplements that turn your mitochondria into super powered super engines. Supplements that send more oxygen to the brain for super hero focus and clarity… and quite possibly x-ray vision! Okay, not really but the mental focus and clarity with nootopics are pretty extraordinary.
One of the supps I am referring to is Unfair Advantage by Bulletproof.

2 minutes jammed into 15 seconds! This is at 850x the speed! I did the fit test at Paleo FX and held the record for a whole day and a half for dead lifting my body weight for the most reps in 2 minutes. 145 lb for 45 reps. Then beast mode girl busted in on the last day and did her body weight for 55 reps… awesome! After that I had to hit up the oxygen bar at the bullet proof booth! #pfx2016 #deadlifting #reps#nevergiveup #fitnessmotivation #fitchick #fitchicks#fitspo #workouts #fitfam #fitfamily #gf2crew #getfitgofigure #bikinicompetitor #bikinibody #npcbikini #npc #noexcusesjustresults #everydamnday #bodybuilding#NANBF #naturalbodybuilding #earnednotgiven #killinit #glutes #hammies #quadz
Don’t go to Paleo Fx if you hate germs.
Suja Probiotic Waters was handing out full size, refreshing drinks all weekend and had me hooked! And my gut flora thanked me for it. 😀
Another gastrointestinal support supplement I nabbed samples of was Prescript-assist.
Just stay at home if you strongly dislike sleep…
No, we weren’t partying to the break of dawn.. well, maybe I wasn’t but I’m old people… okay not that old but I value my sleep! Who doesn’t like sleep? Well, okay, due to the fact that my young children never want to take naps and get up before anyone else in the US is willingly up, yeah, they don’t like sleep. BUT, aside from them, who doesn’t like sleep? Everyone feels GREAT after a good quality rest! Getting in not only enough sleep, but good quality sleep is a huge importance for your health.
Doc Parsley and his sleep cocktail is designed to help you get just that. It contains L-Trytophan, GABA (as phGABA), 5-Hydroxytrytophan, Melatonin. Take 30 minutes before bed and sweet dreams to you!
Another product designed to help you get your best sleep vending at Paleo FX was Ancient Minerals magnesium oil spray. Yes spray, you can absorb magnesium through your skin! You can also take magnesium citrate orally 30 minutes before bed as well. I really like ancient Minerals magnesium spray oil as it absorbs well and even tingles a bit after application.
See more on the importance of magnesium in this article, Magnesium, Your Body’ s’ Spark Plug.

Don’t even think about Paleo Fx if extraordinary coffee leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
There were many coffee vendors at Paleo Fx, each doing their own thang. Bullet Proof had their trademark bullet proof coffee blended with grassfed butter (yum).
Caveman coffee did their version of cold brew nitro coffee. They took concentrated coffee mixed with fizzy water before drinking as they didn’t want to haul around the nitrogen tank.
And then there was Four Sigmatic mushroom coffee… pretty good. Definitely had mushroom undertones but in a convenient little drink you enjoy every morning. The benefits of mushrooms are pretty great and how often do ya’ll eat mushrooms vs drinking coffee… m’kay, m’kay.
Just stop now if you like supplements full of crap harming your health.
Vital proteins was another good one and I use their flavorless Collagen Peptide powder daily in my post workout mixed with my Trutein Naturals protein drink.
Other great tasting protein supplements I really liked included Natural Force, The Perfect Paleo Powder, Fit 365, Too Fit USA Sports Nutrition and Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein. Very hard to choose which protein powder I liked best but again…ID life hooked me with their super tasty supps…
Why are you still reading if you hate Guiltless superfoods.
Never attend Paleo Fx if you quite enjoy toxic skin care products…
Never travel your ass down to Austin, Tx for the PFX conference if you would rather avoid the most efficient way to get fit.
And after you kill your quadz fighting a powerful machine you will need to recover. Try the Bullet Proof whole body vibration plate or quicker recovery time and to help detox the immune system. Now, I am just standing here on the vibe plate but you can do yoga, push-ups and all sorts of other movements while on this thing.
Never go to Paleo Fx if you could give a rats ass about biohacking your way to better health..

In Austin TX for the Paleo Fx conference. Right off the plane we hit up Onnit, got a good workout in, sweat it out in the sauna and then did a little cryotherapy session where you get butt naked, put on gloves and shoes to protect your feet and cover sensitive receptors in your hands, step into the chamber where nitrogen is pumped in creating an environment at -150 C (-302 F) for 3 minutes. It was cold as fuck. My legs felt like they were going to snap off but I found it to be WAY easier then an ice bath! Why would anyone do this? Well, there are excellent health benefits with regular practice using hot and cold therapy: Lowering body fat Increasing hormone levels Improving sexual performance and fertility Lowering blood sugar Cutting food cravings Improving adrenal function Fixing thyroid issues Enhancing immune function Improving deep sleep quality Increasing pain tolerance Reducing inflammation @onnit @paleofx #cryochamber #coldtherapy #sauna #onnit #PFX16 #fitchick #bikinicompetitor #crazy #cold #nitrogen
DO NOT GO TO Paleo Fx if you like to beat up your body so that it’s shot by the time you are 40.
Another great class I took was called Primal Play by Darryl Edwards the Fitness Explorer. I LOVED his class and the exercises we did. These are things that I do with my kids now and they don’t even know we are really working on balance, coordination and getting exercise! 😀
And finally, just stay home if you don’t like awesome people…
