The idea of eating as my genetic ancestors naturally ate somewhat resonates with me, but how do I find out what they would've really eaten? Also, given the vast array of healthful foods across the globe, would eating strictly ancestral for my... (more)
It seems to me that Paleo is sort of a rebranding of the Zone style low/no carb diets that lost popularity after being shown to be unhealthy, and extremely difficult. Is science behind this, or is it the animal agriculture industry? I'm just... (more)
So you are obviously a vegan troll, and not here for healthy debate. So I just have one question for you.... Do paleo people actually go on vegan boards and troll like this? Or is this just something you do?
How would I find out what my own specific ancestors ate? Also, what if my mother and father have vastly different lineages? For instance, my father is Persian, my mother is Russian and Polish. I have a feeling their ancestors may have eaten... (more)
Is it possible that there may be another side of Paleo which we have not really gotten the chance to dig into yet. For example should someone originally from Eastern European descendant try to mimic what their ancestors 20,000 years ago ate. And... (more)
This question is spawned from another one of today's threads called "Compassionate Paleo" There is a great discussion going on over there on the difference between killing certain types of animals for slaughter. By nature, this can be as... (more)
True foragers generally don't eat animals that they raised. I've seen this in many ethnographies. I posted an example about the Koyoukon: A few years back, a government agency promoting the American agrarian ideal shipped baby chickens and... (more)
I'm pretty sure our ancestors acquired salt from drinking an animal's blood and from seafood. I'm fascinated by the new studies that say salt is good for you and I was wondering how much sodium Grok ate and how much should we eat?
When my fingernails and toenails get longer they get in the way and are more likely to get snagged or broken (grimace). I figure nails evolved to be the way they are just like everything else. How do we think our ancestors kept their nails at a... (more)
I tend to be REALLY thirstless. I'm almost never thirsty, I don't really like the taste of water unless I'm dying of thirst (slight exaggeration) which is almost never, sometimes in hot weather I end up deyhdrated and I don't know what hit me and... (more)
Maybe you just have a feedback system that doesn't feed back. Thirst merely signals that the body is low on water. I don't see why an adaptation would evolve to fool a desert dweller, and not warn him he is about to die of thirst.
Some bodybuilders these days look like absolute beasts. But we all know that many of them are using performance enhancing growth hormones to achieve that look, something that our ancestors surely never had. Further to that, looking like 'the hulk'... (more)
