Max Ungar

Hello, my name is Max Ungar and I have been following a Paleolithic/Caveman style diet for about 3 years now and it has completely changed my life. Before I started the diet, I was around 225 at 6'0 and 16 years old. After a couple of months on the diet, I was down to 195 and after a few more months I was 6'2 195 lbs. Not to mention I felt better, and was performing better athletically. Having just been drafted by the Washington Nationals, I now attend Denison University where I am studying how to be awesome, as well as a health nut. I believe in healthy lifestyles, paleo eating, crossfit, happiness, living life one step at a time, family, expecting nothing, and experiencing everything. Hopefully this blog will help you delve into the life of a paleolithic diet and keep it through tough, busy times such as college, parenting, or just life.

“Why I don’t do CrossFit”: A Logical Response

Every now and then, I read an article that specifically spells out why doing paleo, CrossFit, weightlifting, etc. is a bad idea. I do this to stay humble and up-to-date with the most recent arguments against some of the things I tend to endorse. There has been an article circling around recently that fits this […]

14 Lessons I Learned My Sophomore Year

14 Lessons I Learned My Sophomore Year

With the school year ending, I thought it would be nice to write another reflection piece on what I have learned this year. Sure I’ve learned about metabolic pathways, modal reasoning, and trophic pyramids, but the most important lessons learned came from a less likely source: outside the classroom. After my Freshman year, I wrote […]

Spring Cleaning: What’s Important?

Finally, the weather here in Ohio is starting to gradually get nicer and nicer, which means one thing: Spring time! Growing up in the DC area, I have grown pretty fond of the Spring. Cherry blossoms are blooming, temperatures are rising, and it’s time to crawl out of our dorm room caves and into the […]

(20)14 Realistic New Year’s Resolutions

Above, a picture from a great trip, with friends, to Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah, VA (Photo Credit: Daniel Neuberg) I never really saw the point to making new years resolutions. If I want to do something, I usually just go out and do it. It doesn’t take the new year to inspire me to […]

Why I Stopped Following The Paleo Diet

Why I Stopped Following The Paleo Diet

About three years ago, I started following the paleo diet. If you are unsure of what a paleo diet consists of, follow THIS link. After just a few weeks, I saw some really positive effects.
