More Media Coverage of the Paleo Diet

I’ve been trying to keep tabs on how many CBS affiliates around the US have reported on the Paleo diet, but I’ve lost count. The latest station, CBS 4 in Miami, has a short report which features two people who are following the Paleo diet for different reasons. More Media Coverage of the Paleo Diet [...]

Paleo Diet: Fighting Within The Ranks…AGAIN!

I guess it was bound to happen. For a while there, the Paleo community on the whole seemed to get along nicely, like one large reasonably cohesive family…..but now, not so much. Recently, the Paleo community has witnessed a little, sometimes-unfriendly fighting within the ranks. First, everyone began taking shots at Don Matesz for his [...]

The Paleo Diet Main Event: Harris Vs. Matesz

Apparently, Dr. Kurt Harris of the “Archevore” blog, has become a little annoyed with the recent chain of inconsistent information that has been streaming from Don Matesz of the “Primal Wisdom” blog. So annoyed in fact, that he decided to lay down one of the most intense, no-holds-bared smack-downs that I’ve seen in a long [...]

Are Nitrates Paleo Friendly?

For months now I have seen a continual flow of people on the various Facebook Paleo groups, who either ask about nitrates, or have an established opinion that nitrates are an evil entity, and a nefarious destroyer of health. We know that Paleo focuses on overall food quality. We seek out the best sources for [...]

Longevity and the Paleo Diet

I’m sure that many of us read with interest the announcement on Tuesday - by Survival International, an indigenous rights group working in the Amazon – that the world’s (assumed) oldest living person is about to celebrate her 121st birthday.  Maria Lucimar Pereira is one of the Kaxinawá tribe, and lives in the western Brazilian Amazon. She [...]

The Ever Changing Face of The Paleo Diet

Exactly what the Paleo diet is, and what it means for everyone is a question that has been asked many times. With any named lifestyle, there is always a group of puritans who believes that the Paleo diet is embodied by a very specific set of guidelines that people should stick to without question in [...]

Fat Phobia on the Paleo Diet

It’s gratifying that the paleo diet and lifestyle are becoming better known and increasingly discussed as a way of achieving vibrant health.  However, a concerning trend is becoming more and more apparent – namely, that of paleo pundits advising that the diet is based around the consumption of lean meats.  This recent article is a [...]

Is The Paleo Diet Just Low-Carb in Disguise?

After the recent Ancestral Health Symposium, there was a lot of talk in the blogosphere about how a large percentage of the presenters were from the low-carb community. Tom Naughton, Dr. Eades, and Gary Taubes to name but a few. But does that mean that the Paleo diet is just another low-carb diet in disguise, [...]

How to Cheat (Sort Of) on the Paleo Diet

One of the main reasons I prefer to think of the paleo approach as a “lifestyle” rather than a “diet” is that the word diet often implies its opposite: cheating! Of course, the beauty of the paleo diet is that it’s deeply satisfying, so breaking the diet becomes much less of a temptation.  However, many [...]
