Food Inc, very interesting watch. Recommended by a family member, then passed on to another family member after we watched it. Supports some of the concepts of the Paleo diet, and our need for better nutrition. I really enjoyed the film, and as a result found out that most of my family is allergic to a variety of food.

Not necessarily due to the movie Food Inc, but as part of the overall fitness move within our family (and extended family) we now enjoy a much healthier high fiber diet, get regular exercise, and watch ... very closely... what lunch is made of. Of course going out to eat is a bit like walking the proverbial minefield, with so many varied needs.

Also, I'm very intrigued by the concept of Gluten Free and Endurance Sports. Joe, do you think the inflammatory response that so many of us have without even realizing it, would slow down recovery time, increase muscle fatigue, and decrease economy? This is a theory bouncing around in my head.

There's some coaches that insist on their cycling teams going GF (Gluten Free) during training, and event. I believe team Garmin is one, and there's another that I can't remember off the top of my head.

Geoff A—Thanks for your comment. There’s no doubt that diet is critical to recovery and performance. What exactly all of the up/downsides are is still unknown. You can’t go wrong, however, by eating real food as opposed to supplements.
