The Paleo Summit is Here - Day 1

The Paleo Summit is here! The first day features Mark Sisson, of Mark’s Daily Apple and Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites. Mark Sisson kicks off the program with a definition of what ancestral living really means. A basic tenet of the Paleo diet is to eat as our ancestors ate, but who were these ancestors? [...]

Paleo Diet: Thursday Link Love

It used to be Wednesday, and then I skipped a few, so Brian posted a “Sunday Link Love” article, so I think I’m going to break the rules yet again. Here it is, nearly the end of the week, and I’m suffering from that well-known blogger’s block. I really don’t seem to have a whole [...]

The Paleo Diet and The Asian Paradox

If you’ve been living the Paleo, Primal, or general low-carb lifestyle for any amount of time, you’ve almost certainly heard someone say something along the lines of, “If Carbs are so bad, how come the Chinese eat a ton of rice, but still stay thin?!”. This is actually a good question. After all, if starchy [...]

Is the Paleo Diet Conservative?

This is not a question that I had ever considered asking myself before, “is the Paleo diet conservative?” I figured it was an eating plan, a lifestyle, basically a way of living to improve one’s health that was entirely unconnected to politics. But there is one conservative writer who seems to think it is. Jack [...]

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 [...]

Doesn’t Paleo Protein Wreck My Kidneys?

I’m honestly feeling incredibly lazy (mentally) and tired (physically) tonight, so this post is going to be a “copy and paste” fest. No one really listens to what I’ve got to say anyway, they really want to hear what Robb Wolf and Mark Sisson have to say about life, love and Paleo. I’ve heard so [...]

Wolf or Sisson, Primal or Paleo?

In the last week or so, two GIANTS of the ancestral health world decided to almost simultaneously release their own versions of a Paleo/Primal quick start guide, to help all of the ancestral health newbies get a strong start on their personal road to health. First, on October 6th 2011, Robb Wolf released the “Robb [...]

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 [...]
