Dr Harris was years ahead of the rest of the paleo gurus. A couple are just now starting to catchup while the mainstream gurus are getting more conservative. I would still revisit his blog even after he stopped writing. Sad to see it go down, ... (more)

Has a Paleo guru ever given you advise that you ended up following and eventually came to the conclusion that in the end it was bad advice?

I never asked a paleo guru for advice. I doubt many have. EDIT: It's been called to my attention that I'm getting a little snarky 'round here. Mea culpa, I'll tone it down! I think that I do not like the notion of "paleo gurus,"--but that's my... (more)

Totally agree with him. A lot of people use starch as a butter delivery system, which will spike LDL (perhaps with no negative health effects) and just generally greatly increase energy density. The amount of butter that you can make "disappear"... (more)

Can ketosis be attained without Dairy? I'm a little confused after reading a lot of Dr. Kurt Harris' stuff. Can anyone clarify, is it just easier with butter and full cream, but can be achieved while still being Paleo?

Getting into ketosis isn't about what you eat, it's about what you don't eat: carbs.

Either way, protein gives the most satiety per unit of energy and has a higher thermic effect. Any effective (and tolerable) fat loss diet should be built primarily around lean meat.
