Just a quick courtesy post to inform anybody that has followed this page that at the end of the month I will no longer be updating this page.

If you would like to continue to follow my writing and receive information on health and performance please check out my other site, The Primal Dave. I am posting almost weekly. All of my new content can be found there.

Thank you for reading. Hope to see you over on the new site.
