People used to all the time but two things have changed: I stopped talking about it. I think I came across as a bit of an evangelist to some, and I can see why. "Why don't you have some cake? - Let me tell you what it's doing to your body!" ... (more)

NPR has a blog article in which they highlighted comments about a previous post of theirs on the paleo diet. One of the highlighted comments was this: Robert McNealy (wooddragon) wrote: The term "Evolutionary Medicine" is a bit deceptive. Diet... (more)

The idea that natural selection only plays a point up to age of reproduction makes sense when it comes to animals that spawn a bunch of offspring and then have served their purpose in life (i.e., propagation of the species). However, humans are a... (more)

File this under "good problems to have" for most.... I have been eating primally for well over six months now. I am 5'2" and 110 lbs (and holding steady). I feel great, I eat great, I THOUGHT I looked well, and I have been happy with the... (more)

"Next time I see you, I want you to have 5 less lbs on you." See how they like it.

This is a very non-scientific question, out of pure curiosity. The last 3 years I???ve been kickboxing passionately, I started lifting weights and then, one year ago, I started crossfit as well. (I was in high school and took a year off after... (more)

Male perspective. Some body types are clearly more popular among men, 36/24/36 is a cliche for a reason, along the axis of Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek. Too skinny, too muscular, and wide swimmer's shoulders are a turn-off for majority of white... (more)

Do you consult any non-paleo sources of information? Sometimes my friends criticize me for getting all of my information from one source - the paleo blogosphere - which biases the type of information to which I am exposed. This criticism rings... (more)

I get most of my info from scientific papers, which are decidedly not paleo, but I have found that when I want to get relevant info on something, it is often better to search for "X paleo" than simply "X."

Those of you follow PaNu/Dr Kurt Harris probably have read that he will be cross posting at Psychology Today Online. As a big fan of Dr Harris, I am very happy for him and the masses that will be getting exposure to Paleo principles. In his... (more)

To quote Logan: "... but a fervent view that their way is the ONLY or best way for everyone what can make those paleos dubious." The moment you start to believe you've found the one way of eating for everyone is the moment you start being... (more)

Intellectual honesty demands that we understand and respond to the smartest & best arguments our critics make. What are the best anti-paleo arguments? And what are our responses to them? Note: I'm interested in logical, factual arguments --... (more)

I don't know that he offers "a smart anti-paleo" argument, per se, but Dr Ornish's program is highly divergent from Paleo when it comes to red meat, fat, animal sourced foods. He also includes grains, legumes and other non-Paleo foods in his... (more)

What do you look for in a paleo friendly blog what draws you to read or subscribe to one or another? Do you want recipes, studies, tips, advice, fitness? I want to add to my blog things that people want to read... I made my log to share my... (more)

I have a short attention span. I'm looking for (1) good writing, (2) humor, and (3) a fresh "take." It's a crowded field, especially the "foodie" sites. In order for your appeal to go beyond family and friends, you have to stand out in some... (more)

I think his points are all right on. He doesn't strike me as a hater at all! In fact, it seems to me that he goes out of his way to provide a reasoned analysis of the flaws in the way CF is implemented in many affiliates. If you want haters, you... (more)
