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)

It seems to me she's a few pounds heavier than what most of us would prefer for aesthetic reasons. But WAPF is not an automatic weight loss solution, and nor is paleo -- just read through the boards here, there are lots of people who don't lose,... (more)

What a retarded video. I'm sure it's just as easy (if not easier!) to find a bunch of miserable looking veg*ns and pit them against folks like Sisson, Wolf, and the host of other new young paleo authors.

Wow, where to begin. First off that's not hypercholesterolemia, as even mainstream medicine puts the cutoff at a TC of 200 mg/dL. For reference, when I went crazy eating butter my TC hit 391. Panicking at 191 is kind of funny, actually. You... (more)

Bean sprouts are typically soy bean sprouts. That puts them at the top of my personal banned list. Soy is about as neolithic a crop as exists. For those of us who don't have East Asian ancestory, soy is a brand new crop to our diets. It was... (more)

The problem with the paleo label isn't the label, it's folks insistence that X is paleo while Y is not. And then fighting over it. Paleo is a big umbrella.
