I was a skeptic before I found paleo... now I'm cynical/skeptical of almost everything I hear. My non-skeptic/SAD friends probably think I'm a big ol Debbie Downer. As far as the news goes, I trust Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart more than any... (more)

I'm not sure that this is a question, but it highlights many of the problems around at the moment. It's not as if it's completely wrong, but these arguments are being had by vested interests (and too often that includes scientists as well on... (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)

Holy Cow (no pun intended), but I'm sure you can get by on such bad nutrition when you look like you haven't lifted anything above 5lbs your entire life. This woman needs some meat(again no pun intended) on her bones. Sometimes I wonder if... (more)

Does the source of your information on diet and health determine how you accept the information? Do you question and research into advice from paleo* online/book sources as you would from your Primary Care doctor or other conventional... (more)

I'm one of those people who looks up from the paper and says "Hey, this is interesting/horrifying/ridiculous, listen to this...." Unfortunately for me, no one in my immediate circle is or understands paleo. So whenever I see an egregious piece of... (more)
