‘Living naturally’ negates millenia of natural selection

It seems I can’t go a week without hearing something about “living naturally.” While it isn’t as common in Wisconsin, this health craze of looking toward our ancestors and their lifestyle habits and choices is all but unavoidable on the West Coast. However, I do see the slow creep of this movement in UW-Madison’s student population, and it must be stopped. I see toe shoes, ketogenic Paleo diets, functional strength training a la CrossFit and all affiliated acts as a faddish response for middle-aged men tired of the weekly spin class their significant others force them to attend. This group of ideals would almost be tolerable, and even respectable, if its proponents were not some of the most annoying people you’ll meet on planet Earth, but since they are, I feel its my job to pick apart what’s driving these fads forward.

Make your New Year's resolution a reality

With every New Year’s come new dreams, hopes and resolutions. 2014 is finally here, giving everyone the opportunity to change those bad habits or make new wishes a reality. Resolutions can seem unrealistic and extremely cheesy sometimes, but you need to take these straight on, seatbelt fastened and full throttle. However, are New Year’s resolutions overrated, things that we should just never try to make happen? The challenge of New Year’s resolutions is something that almost everyone faces, but from past experiences, I believe they are well worth it. It is not necessarily what your resolution is, but how it is executed. So as 2014 gets underway, stay strong with these changes and you will surely see results in your future.
