I have been Paleo for about 3 weeks. I see recipes that I thought werent included in this diet. I thought you cut out dairy, grains, added sugar and legumes. But I am seeing Paleo recipes that include some of these things. What is acceptable??? (more)

it depends. Rice is acceptable to many, including me, specially if cooked in a way that enhances resistant starch (there is a recent post about it). Eggs are acceptable to many, but I find that egg whites are more inflammatory than not-paleo... (more)

Many ancestral populations are cancer free or near cancer free. Of course paleo theory does not account for the vast effects of our gut flora, but if you eat well and have a good flora, you will be fine.
