I took out a giant shopping bag from the fridge (not freezer) with three giant wild caught salmon filets and three seperately wrapped pounds of grass fed beef. They were all in the same shopping bag. I cooked one salmon filet around 6:20, when I... (more)

Can you afford food bourne illness and a hospital stay? Not that I think luke-warm meat for a few hours is a significant hazard.

Hi, My name is Kristen. I am new to the Paleo diet and trying to adjust my eating habits to be more healthy. I am a 40 year old mother of a little girl. For the past several years I have been battling some annoying disorders, including Fibro... (more)

Cheese is pretty okay as long as it is whole, natural, and doesn't upset your stomach. The fattier the better with cheese. Carbs are okay in moderation as long as they come from "safe sources" but I'll let you do your own research there and just... (more)

I was just wondering if someone can give me a path to becoming a nutritionist and the different things one can become from there. Just any wisdom in general would help.

Probably the most useful thing I learned is not to vilify carbs. I was convinced by Mark Sisson's Carbohydrate Curve that eating over 150 grams per day would plummet me into some sort of abyss, despite my general level of health, leanness, and... (more)

This is an offshoot from another question (here) but it seemed good enough to warrant its own thread. Has going Paleo affected how you view the news/media information? If CW was so dead wrong about nutrition, are they right about anything?... (more)

Saw this on Facebook today. It's got a couple of minor issues with it, but overall it's not bad. So what do you think? Is it just a funny graphic? Or is it darn near close to being a good overview of the paleo diet? PS. Please credit the... (more)

The new Paleo Diet Infographic (see "Click Me," right side column) is quite good. However, it's got an error of fact that could be easily corrected, and should be. The "McGovern Commission" was headed by Sen. George McGovern, but it had nothing... (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."
