comment How important is it that a person be able to touch their toes?
Remember that you can bend different parts of your body as you reach for your toes - hips, lower back, upper back, shoulders. I think hip bends are the healthiest, which requires long hamstrings. So just "can you touch your toes" leaves a lot of questions unanswered.

comment My hip goes out of place within a matter of days after the Chiroproactor pops it back into place, is there any way I can pop it back myself?
Ask your chiropractor about exercises to strengthen the appropriate muscles to address this issue.

+1 for don't get stepped on. I have munchkins running around, and every time I lie down they jump on me!

comment Which activities increase flexibility?
@Sparafusile: I'm just a regular guy who can't touch his toes. :-) My flexibility is generally bad all over.

comment How much water is too much?
Drink when you're thirsty. (You have to play attention to how you're feeling for that to work.)

comment How can I stretch hamstrings in isolation?
It seems like the amount of stretching force I can bring to bear on the hamstrings is limited by the strength of my lower back. Is that correct?

comment What is the least damaging way to eat unhealthy food?
85% chocolate isn't that unhealthy in my book. It has a lot of complex substances that may meet needs you aren't aware of, beyond just "protein/vitamins/minerals/etc." Not a lot of room for sugar in there. You may be doing just fine. You lost 20kg, after all.

comment How can I maintain my energy levels?
This is the "food coma" that comes after a large, high-carb meal.
