Paleo Diet News: The Truth About Fat?

Paleo Diet News: The Truth About Fat?

I watched a documentary last night the name of which promised a great deal to anyone interested in the paleo diet: ‘The Truth About Fat’ (Horizon, BBC).  Sadly, it fell significantly short of the mark. It was presented by surgeon Dr. Gabriel Weston, who guided the audience through her journey of looking at the probable causes [...]

Paleo Diet: Is That Loose Skin, or Just Body-Fat?

This subject is actually a large concern for a lot of people. It has concerned me in the past because…..well…I’m vain, and I didn’t relish the idea of having pieces of loose skin on my body, as I lost weight. I was never really more than about 20lbs overweight, even at my heaviest, but after [...]

The Best Way to Eat Eggs on the Paleo Diet

Eggs are a major staple of the Paleo diet., or they seem to be among the Paleo practitioners I know. And they should be. Eggs are a fantastic source of protein and fat and are full of nutrients like vitamins E and A and omega-3. They are also relatively inexpensive - a great value for [...]

Paleo Diet: Is It Worth It To Count Calories?

It has to be one of the longest running arguments in existence… calories count? Considering that a calorie is a unit of energy, and our body is in the business of using energy, it would be silly to think that calories mean absolutely nothing to us. No-one can completely discount calories, because whether a person [...]

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 [...]

Paleo Diet News: Friday Link Love

Watchout, here come the excuses! The main reason that I chose to do a link post today is because I’m currently dropping into deep Ketosis after eating a high-carb diet for the last month. I’m 24 hours in, I’ve eaten less than 10grams of carbs today, and my brain is barely functioning at this point. [...]

Paleo Diet News: Gary Taubes on the Red Meat Study

This morning I posted a somewhat humorous take on the whole “red meat increases death” debacle since I knew, through the methodology of the study, that it was likely to be incorrect. Since others had covered why it was wrong, I didn’t see the need to beat it up here. But I would like to [...]

Paleo Diet: What If Sugar Doesn’t Cause Diabetes?

It’s a serious question. What IF sugar doesn’t cause diabetes? I know, everyone in the world “knows” that diabetes is a functional breakdown of the body’s ability to effectively utilize and remove excess sugar (Glucose) from the blood stream, but does that mean that sugar is at the very root cause of the disease? Isn’t [...]

Paleo Diet: What? More Excuses?!

A few days ago I posted an article called “Don’t Let Excuses Stop Your Success” about not letting excuses stand in the way of our health and happiness that some people found rather motivational. Isn’t that a happy coincidence?! After I wrote that article, it occurred to me that there are still several pieces of [...]

Paleo Diet: Don’t Let Excuses Stop Your Success!

“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him” – David Brinkley There are some people in the world who respond to my favorite kind of motivation, known as “tough love”, and there are others who do not. Some people like to be gently lead [...]
