I was reading some answers here and one of the answers really sparked some curiousity about how food is allotted in hunting/gathering groups around the world. Who gets the most, or is the food divided equally? What about male and female... (more)

Many traditional hunter-gathers have a communtarian culture. For example, among the Sioux, the best hunters gave away much of their meat to show their generosity and gain social status towards being chosen for leadership positions. Traditionally... (more)

http://gizmodo.com/5911825/why-real-men-eat-red-meat I wonder what the gender breakdown is amongst the greater Paleo community. As mentioned in the article, both genders tend to associate meat consumption with masculinity. Would this result in a... (more)

I'm curious about the demographics of the paleo community. Is this information available? I'm interested in these types of demographics: Age: Average age of a paleo person? Would it be good to see this number lowered significantly? Gender: Are... (more)

(warning, long rambling post, might be repetitive and have errors) The way to resolve the problem of people who have good metabolic health telling those who don't what they can and can't do is resolved by proportioning one's beliefs to the... (more)

I'm just wondering if the current primal/paleo exercise paradigm is too male-oriented. Would women have been more likely to sprint or dance, for example? Does the female body and hormonal environment change the rules at all or is what's good for... (more)

I am on both sides of the fence here. As a woman who likes to keep fit, I adhere to the "lift like a man" method. I go heavy, Olympic style lifts. I also do high intensity intervals. I used to (as a teen and in my 20s) run long distances, but it... (more)

Since I am not an anthropologist, and these issues were raised in a previous discussion I need to state the little that I know about it and try to discuss it here. From a material point of view, if compared to any industrial or even most neolithic... (more)

The short answer from me is yes. All foods cause hormonal changes in our body and can effect gene transcription. Men and women handle foods differently and the diseases they get have commonalities but there are striking differences as well. My... (more)

Most of the paleo literature out there is gender-neutral, with no specific guidance for men or women. Outside of paleo literature, we've heard that women should eat less red meat than men in general. If this is indeed not a myth, then what... (more)

It's definitely a myth. Women need more iron than men since we lose it during our periods, childbirth, etc. It's actually a certain population of men that should eat less red meat (some men accumulate iron). There is an evolutionary aversion... (more)

Most of the women I know are obsessed with eating junk food, and just eating in general. I've never known many guys to obsess about wanting to have a slice of cheesecake. I just don't get it.
