You are Unique (Almost)

I have had the JOY of studying functioning humans for over 30 years.  We have conducted hundreds of experiments on exercising/working people at all levels of fitness.  What have I learned?

I have a learned a few things about:
Suspension trauma
Personal cooling
Recovery from Training
Clothing and micro-environment
With occasional forays into other areas.

In view of that I have learned one thing, over all others, that may very useful for all of us.  And that thing is:
We are ALL Different.

What works for one person, fails for another.  In any group of a dozen test subjects, one or two will respond differently, sometimes oppositely, from the others.  If this is true, and I believe it is, then general recommendations for exercise, diet, weight loss, medication, or anything else, only applies to the average person, and no necessarily to you personally.

So here's the take-home message.  Take all advice, including mine, with a BIG grain, maybe a shaker-full of salt.  It MAY NOT work for you.

Of course there is ONE exception to this message.  "It is appointed unto man once to die, and after that the judgment."  (Heb 9:27).  We are all in the same spiritual boat.  G^d sees us as individuals, the Christ died for us as individuals, but some of G^d's decrees are universal-- there are no exceptions.

So how's that for self-contradiction?
