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 [...]

Paleo Diet News: ‘Good Calories, Bad Calories’ Redux

Gary Taubes‘ book ‘Good Calories, Bad Calories’ has been on my reading list for some time, but I must confess it keeps getting superseded by other - shorter! - books I’m interested in reading. So I was thrilled to stumble across this terrific summary of the book on the Guts & Black Stuff blog.  Greg does [...]

Paleo Diet News: The Truth Behind ‘The China Study’

There can be no doubt that T. Colin Campbell’s book ‘The China Study’ is one that has gained considerable prominence amongst nutritionists from all backgrounds, not least because it proclaims itself as ‘the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted’. Some hold it up as the manifesto which proves the sense of a plant-based, vegan diet (the [...]

Dehydrators: A Great Gift for the Paleo Diet

An important appliance for the Paleo kitchen is a good dehydrator. A dehydrator will allow you to make jerky and pemmican as well as dried fruits and vegetables.  You can also make fruit leather and dehydrate nuts after soaking.  You could even make yogurt! Paired with a vacuum sealer you can create packets to take [...]

Paleo Diet Thanksgiving Feast

Paleo Diet Thanksgiving Feast It has been a little over a week since Thanksgiving 2011 and I know that by now everyone is now stuffed to the gills with turkey leftovers, stuffing and pumpkin pie, but I thought I might share my interesting Thanksgiving experience. Every dish at the meal was Paleo. No grain flours, [...]

More Good ‘News’ about the Paleo Diet

There really is a trend, at least among CBS affliliate stations to encourage people to follow the paleo diet. Last week we reported on the CBS News affiliate in Philly which gave a Thanksgiving spin to their story.  Dr. Kim Mulvhill started the ball rolling at the CBS affiliate in San Francisco when she lost [...]

Guilt-Free Paleo Diet Thanksgiving

The message of the effectiveness of the Paleo diet is spreading, at least through local media news. A second CBS affiliate, this time CBS Philly, has reported on the Paleo diet, with a Thanksgiving spin. Dr. Kim Mulvhill of CBS News, San Francisco, first reported on the Paleo diet last month when she tried it [...]

Who Are Your Paleo Diet Heroes?

Who are your paleo diet heroes? I was pondering this question recently after someone asked me how I “discovered” paleo.  Perhaps surprisingly, I realized that I had found my way via 1990s low-fat fitness star Susan Powter, who recommended the work of the herbalist Susun Weed, who led me to the work of Sally Fallon and [...]

Best Gift for the Paleo diet: Rebounders or Mini-trampolines

A Paleo diet home gym does not need to be complicated. There are a few pieces of equipment needed for an effective workout. The gym might include a doorway pull up bar like this or this, and a set of kettle bells, like these. Fortunately, none of these pieces of equipment are very expensive. Keep [...]

Paleo Diet vs. Traditional Diet

What is the opposite of a fan? Perhaps antagonist? Well there is yet another antagonist to the Paleo diet, Manuel Villacorta. He has looked at the Paleo diet and doesn’t like what he sees. He advocates eating a traditional diet, like our grandparents or great, great, great grandparents. For him it is a case of [...]
