They were always leaning that way. When me and my wife were near vegetarian (20 yrs ago), we took a one week bike trip in France (beautiful). But in the hotels at night we would get zucchini wrapped in bacon, or potatoes roasted and soaked in duck... (more)

How do the French/italian/japanese stay so slim eating loads of carbs? I keep watching all these Italian cooking shows and had me thinking.

I recently read a book called Bringing Up Bebe, a memoir/parenting journal of sorts by an American who raised her kids in Paris. A few things really grabbed my attention in the book about French eating habits no snacking or mindless... (more)

Taste should rule within bounds of course. For me it is vacuum first then French press and chemex drip depending on the time and situation. Early am Fr P. but later drip but after full dinner back to vacuum. Da Jim

I follow Perfect Health Diet pretty closely with great results, hence the reason for the carbs. Anyways, I peel a potato, then cook it whole until its pretty soft in the middle. I then cut the potato into decent size wedges and fry them in... (more)

I like the idea of using bacon instead of butter. Sounds tasty though...

My LDL cholesterol jumped 50 points to 190 after two years drinking French press coffee, 2 mugs a day. When I discovered the alleged link, I switched to paper filter coffee and lost all 50 points in three months, a period so short the doctors... (more)

And I feel AWFUL. My self esteem has gone way done. I feel ugly and bloated. I want to be "cleansed" (the feeling I get after my first week of paleo) but for some reason I have a really difficult time during the school year. I come home from... (more)

The last time I fell off the bandwagon was a couple of days ago. I fasted the day after and have eaten probably less than 300 calories for a couple days after that (I had very minimal hunger pangs during this time, i probably binged enough to... (more)

I'm curious about the international presence of the Paleo lifestyle. Are there any books/authoritative sources on the Paleo diet that are popular in non-English speaking countries? Is the Paleo diet especially gaining momentum in any other... (more)

Paleo has its followers in Hong Kong but currently nothing organized. Probably it's also because the Crossfit scene has not taken off yet. Trying to offer a platform for primal people be it residents or tourists to exchange knowledge and advice.... (more)

Is there something specific to snails that would make them desirable as a paleo food? I know the French love their escargot, now my question is whether I am missing any specific nutrient by not having snail, or my intake of fish and beef already... (more)

I've had snails in French restaurants and as street vendor fare in Korea. Personally, I don't really like the way sea snails taste (too briny, with a little sand thrown in) but when you're out in Seoul, there are only a few options from street... (more)

The Mediterranean and French lifestyles are somewhere in between the Standard American Diet (SAD) and many Paleo diets. They eat fewer processed foods. But, cornetti/croissants and gelato aren't paleo. Because as the SAD invades those countries,... (more)

Great Question. If you saw the queues outside Macdonalds here at lunch time, well, you would realise that the SAD diet is alive and well here in France. I must just add a few things about the French diet, it is not just about cheese and wine. It... (more)

This seems like a dish right up the Paleo alley. Does anyone make their own steak tartare? Is it safe? Is it tasty?
