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)

I've found that Costco is about as hip as a large mega-chain can get. The Costcos in Arizona were quick to stock coconut oil/almond butter/Kerrygold/grass fed beef/etc. and I often find a good selection of local products, such as a delightful... (more)

Who will be the paleo luminary who tips paleo into mainstream culture? Is it even possible or even desirable? Do you care, as a paleo eater? The reason I ask is this: the other day, I had the opportunity to have a conversation with a member of... (more)

I think it's Robb Wolf. His background (and his material) suggests that he has a great grasp on the science side. I'm sure studying under Dr. Cordain helped :-)

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)

For what it's worth, you may want to look into replacing some of that grass-fed beef with oily fish. You've got the sardines on there, which could cover your omega-3 requirements, but you could also replace some of the beef with fish and get... (more)

After following a paleo eating style for the past 3 months, I've lost 35 pounds, regained vitality, skin cleared up, and an overall depression lift. Surely some of you can relate to the 'emotional' side of this strict of diet. I own it a little... (more)

I was VERY strict on paleo for about 2 years. No dairy, low carb, no cheats. I just didn't get the results I wanted (still had dry skin, still 5lbs heavier than I wanted to be) and eventually being that strict didn't seem worth it, I had a... (more)

I have tried his Vitamin D / Calcium combo. Good supplement. Noticed an improvement in energy immediately. Also tried Primal Flora. Didn't sit well. Gave me a weird type of energy that I didn't like, and caused some digestive issues. (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)

Cause you don't need to be in ketosis to lose weight, but limiting carbs still helps with appetite suppression and improved metabolic health. As does making certain your getting enough protein. Really I eat in the 50-100g range most the time. ... (more)

Paleo continues to go mainstream! Edited to turn it into a question: If you watched this, what are your thoughts?

Does anybody do it? It seems like the perfect Paleo exercise (slow, whole body, Sisson-endorsed). What's it like? How difficult? Would you recommend it to somebody with no experience?
