As usual, Paleo's getting more and more mentions. Lots of us paleo folks shop at Costco or other warehouses, and I find it awesome to see this puff piece that mentions Michelle Tam, Diane Sanfilippo and Mark Sission and provides a couple of... (more)
let's talk about the 80/20 rule as a law of efficiency (not the 80% paleo, 20% cheat food rule), whereby you figure out which 20% of your inputs are producing 80% of the results, or in this case: which essential foods should provide the... (more)
I take quite a few supplements, and I was just looking at Sisson's consolidated formulas. Obviously I'm not just going to take the salesman's word. I'm looking for third party feedback. That means, if you've actually tried these products, please... (more)
Hi! After reading a recent thread on paleohacks, I got to wondering what Mark Sisson's requirement of 50-100g carbs for effortless weight loss stems from. Since he states that 0-50g is the level at which the dieter would be in ketosis, how is... (more)
Probably some Vegan.... lol

What do you think? LOL !!!!!!!!
He uses expressions like "PROVE." Science does not "prove" anything. That is not how the process works at all. THis fraud was also pimping low carbohydrate diets ADAMANTLY back in 2005: **http://www.lowcarb.com.au/health/common-myths.htm He... (more)

Even if you were completely correct in thinking Paleo is a bunch of hooey, why come here and waste your time being a rude troll? What's in it for you? What are you hoping to accomplish with this?
I study anatomy and physiology and my lecturer said that people usually go into a state of gluconeogenesis (conversion of amino acids and fats to carbs) in around 6-10 hours without eating. This state is brought on after the liver has run out of... (more)
http://www.slowtwitch.com/Features/Mark_Sisson_says_training_is_no_guarantee_of_health._4.html I googled "mark sisson steroids" because I was curious how a 50-something year old can maintain such an amazing physique year round. I came up with the... (more)
I think it's a valiant attempt with some major blind spots. He bases his argument on the premise that omnivorism is believed to be unethical (i.e. traditional PALEO is unethical) because it results in the death of animals. He then argues that if... (more)
I use a combination of Primal Blueprint and ideas found on sites like WildMovement.com For me it is going pretty well. I'm in grad school in New York, so I walk every day, some days quite a bit. Some days I need to lug a lot of books. I only go... (more)
To keep myself sane and not obsess too much about counting calories, I'm trying to "eyeball" carbs, trying to focus on Mark Sisson's Carbohydrate Curve by staying below 100g/day. So far, I've only come across basic things like: 1 slice bread (20... (more)
I recently read that Mark Sisson's at MarksDailyApple.com consumes 60% of his calories as fat. For those of you who have not seen him, he looks like this: His fat intake strategy, shape and age (58) got me wondering how my fat intake stacks up... (more)
I was first introduced to the Paleo lifestyle by John Durant, www.hunter-gatherer.com, through an interview on the Colbert Report. It was very interesting to me, seemed difficult, but ultimately made sense. I stashed that knowledge away until... (more)
Has anyone actually followed any of the meal plans in books like The Paleo Diet, The Primal Blueprint or The Paleo Solution? What was your experience of trying to do this? How practical are they, especially if you're the only one in your family... (more)
