Meesus TTP — being, as she is, in the midst of an full-on Face Book addiction and embroiled in the throes of planning for an upcoming High School reunion — found and posted this picture.  Wow, this brings back a flood of memories.  Is there any doubt this is a Texas High School football pep rally?  I mean, check out my belt buckle!  And though not captured in the picture, there’s no doubt in my mind that I’m wearing roper boots and sporting a Copenhagen ring in the back pocket of my Wrangler cowboy cut jeans.  I don’t know what the deal was with the sticking out the tongue thing; I guess I thought I was being cute.

Anyway, I can’t help but to wonder to what extent a  Paleo lifestyle would have bettered my performance on the field.  My gut feeling is, that it would have helped immensely.  But that’s all water under the bridge.  I really do wish, though, that today’s youth could be made fully aware of the advantages of a Paleo lifestyle.

In Health,

Keith

  1. Good post and nice picture. You are much more cut now.

    I have starting my kids on the Paleo way since I started. With all the gene expression starting in their growing bodies I think it a good idea. Their performance on the field will be greatly improved over mine due to it I am sure. Thanks for all your great advice.

    • I was about 215 at this time, at 6′ tall. As a comparison, I’m 200 lbs at the same 6′ today. I probably could have cut a good 20lbs of fat and added quite a bit more muscle on a Paleo diet. That would have helped my power/BW ratio quite a bit. Looking back, I really didn’t eat all that bad, though, considering. I never had much of a junk tooth, though I drank milk by the gallon and ate my weight in bread and potatoes. But I ate plenty of “home cookin'” as well, good amounts meat and vegetables. My parents are still, I’m sure, recovering financially from that God-awful grocery bill. They were never so happy as to finally get me on the University’s meal ticket 🙂

  2. At the local university there is a place where the meal card gets students as much as they want to eat. You should see the amount of food that guys can eat!

    Love the feathered hair!

    • Yeah, even in south Texas we weren’t impervious to the styles of the ’80’s. You should see some of the pictures Meesus TTP is digging up. Gawwwwwd!
