I've read them all and they all come to different conclusions about overall health and weight. Oz, Eades, Mercola, Atkins, Campbell, Taubes, Stone, Peat, Sisson, Cordain, Wolf, Schwarzbein, Rosedale, WAPF/Fallon/Enid and all the famous blogs eg.... (more)

I think you've perhaps set up a false dichotomy: the choice isn't to either eat anything you want or to be obsessive. There is a middle ground. In fact, I think Mark Sisson himself is in that middle ground -- remember the 80-20 rule? By... (more)

Seems there are alot of "Lol I scared my doctor with my test results" posts around here. Could it be possible that paleo dogma is supplanting common sense when it comes to interpreting these established measures of health?

But some of the Doctors are so "under-informed"! My doc saw a total cholesterol of 220 and was writing a 'scrip for statins. This is with an HDL over 100, trigs under 35, and c-reactive protein that was "not measurable"..... so yes, it is fun to... (more)

Eating from nose to tail means getting lots more fat than you would if you only ate the muscle, because bones and organs have a lot of fat. Or so I read in many paleo articles/threads. Bone marrow is essentially all fat. But organs? A serving... (more)

The things that come to mind that were eaten by our paleo friends that are high in fat are brains and sweet breads. Cow brains are like 48 grams of fat per pound, I am going to guess that this is similar for many other animals. Sweetbreads are... (more)

According to the site records records, Andym has trolled before and been suspended. Considering this is a second offense and a rather offensive offense, he will probably be permanently banned on the site. Also, I am changing this question to be a... (more)

One of the dangers of following any diet is becoming dogmatic, developing tunnel vision and, as a result, failing to adapt the diet to your own needs (bio-individuality). What alterations/adaptations to the Paleo diet have you made and why?

I don't buy any paleo 2.0 things. I believe that optimization is always better than a dogmatism stance. I believe like Peter Drucker said in his business books if you can measure it you can manage it. That is how I treat my myself, my family,... (more)
