comment Can I do push ups every day?
+1 for the importance of rest. A surprising amount of people dont/don't want to believe how necessary rest days are.

I guess the answer to this question is rooted in a bigger question so it's hard for me to understand it on this scale, but I didn't want to get too general.

yeah, the calorie content wasn't really what I was worried about. What I was really looking for were the effects that it had on insulin production and what not, which I'm still a little confused about seeing as paleo isn't quite low enough carbs to be centered around ketosis (or at least I think). Also I'm not even really sure what an increased level in production of insulin from chewing a piece of gum would cause.

I remember someone telling me that ring rows are ineffective if you pull too much with your arms, as your back is much stronger and should be principal in doing pullups. Any weight to this?
