Hi paleohackers. The other day on youtube I noticed that durianrider (the deficient-or so we're told-raw vegan) posted yet another one of his nearly perfect and comprehensive blood lipid tests (cholesterol, trigs, AGES, urea, uric acid,... (more)
If you don't feel that a particular person has legitimate credentials, don't buy their book. If I don't find various herbivorous cults to be appealing, I won't join them. Easy peasy.
Why do you trust fitness and health gurus? To me these people seem like some the the least trustworthy professionals out there. The incentive structure in the industry is akin to what would be that of a Hedge Fund (HF-A) who makes money by... (more)

Recently, I have been feeling like a failure with Paleo. It's been difficult to stay on track when everyone around me is scarfing down pancakes and bread and pasta. Which I love. I totally feel 100x better when I eat Paleo, but for whatever... (more)
There's this website called Health Month (www.healthmonth.com) that lets you set "rules" for yourself and make your diet into a game. I'm playing this month. It's like making a custom version of the Whole30 with rules you pick for yourself (so for... (more)
Partly, I want it to do so for support, partly to keep myself honest, and partly to brag (I hope). Don't hate me for that last one... I just tend to do better on diets and such when I feel I can boast a little. When I don't feel that I am in a... (more)
