I like a lot of what the paleo movement reccomends but I think its too early to conclude that saturated fat is some miracle superfood when there are too many conflicting studies for any one to reccomend we start eating these fats with reckless... (more)

I'm wondering if anyone one here heard about meat and poultry leading to poor bone health from a loss of calcium? There are a number of studies showing animal protein causes a high excretion of calcium from the urine. I've spoken to another paleo... (more)

Hi guys, My dad is in his early fifties, overweight by 30-50 lbs and has poor bone density, and when I've gotten him to eat more paleo for extended periods, he hasn't lost the weight he was expecting to (he's been an on/off Atkins guy for years) ... (more)
