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)

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)

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)

Kurt Harris and Mark Sisson both argue that you don't need to eat 100% Paleo all the time. It seems to me if your goal is weight-loss that's pretty uncontroversial, while if you went Paleo for a specific illness you would probably go 100%. In my... (more)
