    That makes three of us! Plus, I'm still in extreme amounts of pain from the last two WODS.

    Let me add just a few comments to today's article. I have worked extensively with people in Steve Freedland's lab on the ketogenic diet- cancer connection. While he has some good preliminary evidence that a ketogenic diet may slow tumor growth, there is some concerning preliminary data that suggest that combining this diet with exercise may enhance tumor metastasis. I am NOT saying that you shouldn't exercise- exercise is vital to overcoming cancer. All I am trying to say is that this is VERY preliminary basic science (done mostly in mice and not humans), and we're really not ready to draw conclusions from it yet. The best thing you can do when talking beating cancer is talk to your doctor/care team and a nutritionist. You never want to make a change like this without consulting your doctor, because every tumor is different and every chemotherapeutic/radiation treatment requires different things. We're not there yet, but we're making steps every day toward beating this disease. Sorry to go on my soap box, but articles like this make me nervous. This is an important first step, but it's certainly not information on which anyone should be making decisions on how to treat cancer. Ok, on that note, back to the tumors that are sitting in front of me in the lab... Allison

      Thanks, Allison! Guys, the articles I post everyday are just to give you food for thought along your CrossFit travels....just because they are posted does not mean we necessarily believe in what they say or endorse them in any way. Read, read some more, and then read some more. And ALWAYS feel free to respond......that is what this forum is all about! See you all at the Total tomorrow!
