Paleo Diet News: Science, Money and Bias

We’ve reported previously (here and here) on the erroneous conclusions drawn from the recent meat-and-mortality studies.  This is a prime example of the kind of bias that can slip into a so-called “scientific” analysis of foodstuffs.  It’s something to be aware of whenever you read the words “a study has shown that….” Something else to [...]

Excited by this review by Mark Sisson of the forthcoming film In Search Of The Perfect Human Diet Mark also has some interesting stuff to say about the benefits of taking a personal retreat - something I enjoy doing from time to time, and need [...]

A Day’s Snacking on the Paleo Diet

A Day’s Snacking on the Paleo Diet

Another “hit and run” article from me today due to continuing I.T. issues.  No, I haven’t taken leave of my senses – I’ve already blogged about the role of snacking in the paleo diet.  For those of you know want to tackle the munchies when they strike (or who want a fast meal) here are [...]

A Day’s Eating on the Paleo Diet

Today, I’m going to be brief!  Internet issues mean I keep getting booted offline, so I figure I’ve got just about enough time to post these three videos, which make up a day’s eating on the paleo diet: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Enjoy! Breakfast Lunch Dinner So there you have it – a day’s eating [...]

Insomnia and the Paleo Diet

This week, in the space of the just 24 hours, I’ve received two separate comments about insomnia and the paleo diet.  The first was from a work colleague who has been giving paleo a try, having seen the fun I’ve had with it.  He told me that after just a week of paleo eating, he’s slept better than he [...]

Paleo Diet and the Perfect (British!) Steak

Paleo Diet and the Perfect (British!) Steak

Steak – it’s surely a staple of the paleo diet, so I thought it would be fun to see how some top chefs cook theirs.  These luminaries of the British cooking scene have been teaching us to cook for many years, and they each have their own take on this old favourite.  You might have to [...]

Killing Some Sacred Cows of the Paleo Diet

Killing Some Sacred Cows of the Paleo Diet

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s article on the winding path of paleo, I thought it would be worth posting this fascinating discussion between Harvard University’s Matt Lalonde and Steve from Evolution: This View Of Life. It’s of particular interest, because – as you’ll see – Lalonde takes a scientific approach to evolutionary nutrition that amounts [...]

The Winding Path of Paleo

I’ve been spending some time recently reflecting on my paleo journey: evaluating my progress to date; re-evaluating my goals; and considering my options for the future… Heavy stuff, huh?  Well, this reverie was prompted by the fact that I’ve reached the point where my immersion in paleo literature, paleo-based friendships, and online paleo/primal communities brings [...]
