I'm looking for Paleo cookbooks, and I was wondering if I could get some community feedback on them before buying. It's becoming obvious to me that we've evolved quite a ways from our mainstream Paleo roots. Our diet is now a mix of Primal,... (more)
In your opinion. Obviously everyone has a different interpretation as to what average/overweight looks like, but let's try to keep the semantics to a minimum. I know we shouldn't talk about a women's weight, but screw social constructs, I want... (more)
Yes, she is fat. This is not an opinion, it's a fact. Search Google Images for yourself.Of course, that doesn't make her a bad person. But, she is grossly overweight.
This upset me: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/22/business/gene-altered-fish-moves-closer-to-federal-approval I really wish those Liberals over at the FDA wouldn't just green-light every dumb idea that was thrown on their desk. Does this represent... (more)
Just watched this video that Jimmy More tweeted http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PutaZQN8R34&feature=youtu.be What do you guys think? Did Weston A Price really die of heart disease at age 58? (more)
Reading this question thread about 'Paleo' vs 'Traditional' diets it struck me that, as far as I know, there's no 'official' organisation to promote Paleo diet, lifestyle and philosophy. Traditional/ancestral diets have the Weston A Price... (more)
WAPF claims that bacteria do not cause tooth decay: As for claims that xylitol can prevent tooth decay, I can only say, “Buyer beware!” Such claims are based on the faulty theory that bacteria cause tooth decay. We know from the work... (more)
It seems that there's less and less Paleo people around. I see plenty of WAPF-type diet eaters here that recommend fermented forms of dairy and fermented/sprouted grains, but not many people who follow a strict Paleo diet. Wondering why this is.... (more)
Am I understanding this correctly? All paleo foods are a subset of all primal foods, and all primal foods are a subset of all WAPF foods? If yes, where does white rice fit? And, I guess all 3 of these are examples of ancestral diets? (more)
Please share your thoughts on this label "Paleo" and suggest a name for your lifestyle. I personally don't like this term because: We have no idea what people actually ate in the Paleolithic period. We only have speculations mainly based on... (more)
Hey guys, I love lacto-fermentation. I love the idea of increasing the digestibility of foods as well as some pro-biotic benefits. So far I've fermented alot of squash, carrots and garlic. I want to expand my horizons. HOWEVER- obvious choices... (more)
I saw it in the latest WAPF journal and it seemed kind of suspicious. http://www.westonaprice.org/cardiovascular-disease/how-does-pork-prepared-in-various-ways-affect-the-blood Even Andrew Weil, a wooish dude, seems to think it's quackery. (more)
The burden of proof as to efficacy lies with the purveyor of any new technology or methodology. Bad science and lousy medicine to assume validity barring contrary evidence.
I've been following the 30 day meal plan from 'Everyday Paleo' with my family, and the recipes are great, but gosh, it's expensive. Since going Paleo we've gone from eating meat 2-3 times a week to 2-3 times a day, and we're consuming about 5... (more)
Info here: http://www.westonaprice.org/conferences/2011/2134-2011-conference So are any of you paleohackers planning on forking over $430 to attend? I would really like to hear Jaminet and Masterjohn's lectures. However, that is a hefty... (more)
I'll be there. I find David's stance admirable and I've considered that as well, but there is a lot of good information there too and I enjoy the ability to really chill out with some of my favorite people. However, I found that the food there... (more)
So, I just got diagnosed as having hyperlipidemia / hypercholesterolemia, and I want to hear thoughts from the Paleo Hackers about it. Anyone else had this diagnosis or lipid panel results that would qualify you for it? Anyone successfully treat... (more)
Seems like there is a lot of crossover. Did you change? Why? Experiences?
I'm looking for some information on soy from reputable sources. I enjoy reading the Weston Price Foundation's information, but in the mainstream media, they are frequently portrayed as a "dangerous" and "fringe" group that advocates for... (more)
Have you tried http://scholar.google.com ? If any papers interest you post them here and I can get you full text. There are TONS of studies on Soy. IMHO WAPF is more reputable than Mercola. At least WAPF has some scientists working for them.... (more)
Following up with the "How long" question, I'm curious as to how strict people are? I'd like to gather some statistics so if people could answer according the following number system: SAD either with or without the junk food, doesn't... (more)
Sally Fallon from WAPF suggests eating nuts and seeds only after they have been de-skinned, sprouted and dried, because of enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid. If they, as she suggests, place such a great strain on the digestive system, then why do... (more)
When I prepare pecans, almonds, etc. the WP way (soak in brine for 7 hours, then dry in a food dehydrator) I find that they are less gassy and easier to digest. I don't think it's the phytic acid (IP6) though. Everybody's afraid that IP6 prevents... (more)
