Scott - you should write for the Enquirer you sensationalist!
I'm 23, live in Brooklyn and have been paleo for about a year. In that time I've had a much harder time than I expected finding a community of fun, young paleo peeps in the area. I know there are a couple Meet-Ups, but most of their outings are... (more)
I think hacks is a good forum, but limited. I am wondering what is a quality high traffic site to promote new paleo projects? If it can make an impact in the paleo-sphere you should be able to discuss the ideas not JUST answer questions directly. (more)
Will Paleo be lumped into other diets, or will it make long-term success? Will be there be a lot of infighting and egos, or can we unite together on the 80-90% we share in common? (I hope for the latter). Will the internet make us more then just... (more)
what an odd question. paleo as a group is irrelevant to the way i choose to live personally. maybe if a national political party were to immerge from our commonalities, i might care 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)
Trying to discover the extent of the Paleo community in the UK, where are the hotspots? numbers in or around our location. OK so if you stop by and are from the UK please leave a note stating where you are and what your personal experiences... (more)
I was in Cambridge/Canterbury, now in Norfolk. There's also a thread on this here.
Today, I was curios about whether the "other side" had a strong blog community like the paleo community does. Are there any nutrition, science based blogs that promote the low-fat diet or is the paleo community unique in this respect?
I'm trying to maintain one Twitter account for the sake of following all Tweets considered Paleo/Primal (i.e. Mark_Sisson). For those of you with Twitter accounts, would you care to share them if you're so inclined? I think it would make for a... (more)
Check out this thread - lots of Twiiter peeps listed there. And there's me: @NEKLocalvore!
Is the paleo community falling into the nutritoinism so pervasive in the modern world? "Nutritionism is a paradigm that assumes that it is the scientifically identified nutrients in foods that determine the value of individual food stuffs in the... (more)
IMHO one of the reasons omega-6 fatty acids are harmful is because much of what we consume (and what is used in studies!) is oxidized. It's been through a bunch of processes that expose it to light and heat, which are the major causes of... (more)
This is a very real and serious condition that I'm sure many readers can be classified under. I'm just wanting to get in contact with people who have fatigue and share coping strategies, work, school, life, treatments, cures, etc. Doesn't matter... (more)
I feel that very recently, I've started to see the dining options where I live (Seattle) growing more paleo friendly. More chefs are cooking with paleo-approved fats (or receptive to cooking with tallow and olive/avocado/coconut oil when asked),... (more)
I must say in Wichita, KS the answer is no. We do have a Natural Grocers here now that carries local grass fed meat. The closest thing we have to a place to eat out and stay paleo would be Chipotle Grill.
A recent post made me think that possibly there is something missing in the Paleo community, and a potential for starting something pretty powerful. As we all know purchasing organic products are expensive, and because of this a lot of families... (more)
Definitely...ideas that I have seen people participating in and/or participate myself: meat shares, meat csas, community ownership of dairy animals, purchasing a whole animal directly from a farmer and sharing it out with friends, veggie csas,... (more)
The more time passes, the less interest I have in diet and the more interest I have in lifestyle. Society has become so different than what I imagine hunter-gatherer, or even pastoralist, life was like. Sure, we have it better in countless ways,... (more)
Instead of living in a master plan community that surrounded a golf course, how about a farm instead? You could walk and get your raw dairy and fresh eggs. It sounds like a good idea to me.
I recently discovered the town of Roseta, PA in the course of reading a book unrelated to diet. The claim was made that the people of Roseta lived longer and healthier lives than those in surrounding towns. Expecting some dietary explanation, I... (more)
Somebody once said, "Ask not what your Paleo can do for you, but what you can do for your Paleo." I forget who said that. Maybe it was Mark Sisson. I don't know. One of those guys. Anyway, I have heard the call and am ready to pick-up that... (more)
Is it feasible for the paleo-community to directly fund real, legitimate and useful scientific studies regarding nutrition/health? What kind of studies might provide the best bang for the buck? How much value might we expect to get from such... (more)
Reading about Hunter-Gatherer societies, I am reminded that they were based upon commmunalism and not the dog-eat-dog competitive paradigm that certain types of evolutionary psychologists (i.e. Steven Pinkner) would have us believe and that... (more)
An interesting aside is in oregon where I live lots of the organic / biodynamic / permaculture farms donate veggies, eggs, cheese, and meat to local food banks or other free community food resources. Some cities and towns have programs to harvest... (more)
At the risk of sounding like an idiot, what is the Community Wiki? Why would I click on it when I answer? Who are the people that go to old questions and mark them Community, and why do they do that? IS THERE a wiki somewhere with all this... (more)
Grok [grok] "Do you feel like nobody groks you? Don't worry, Robert A. Heinlein does. In his 1961 best-selling science fiction novel,??Stranger in a Strange Land, Heinlein coined the term to mean an understanding so thorough that "the observer... (more)
Good morning (and happy St. Crispin's Day for anyone looking for a reason to feast!), I live in northern LA county, in the Santa Clarita Valley. I thought it worth while to throw a feeler out to see if there are any other Hacks in the area that... (more)
I am assuming that at least a few people on here follow Dean's blog. He has announced a new community he is setting up that has an annual subscription. Has anyone looked at what he is offering and are you planning to join? I am wondering what you... (more)
Fight Gone Bad is a Crossfit event for charity giving to some very worthy causes. I thought this might be a good place to get the word out if you're doing it to help generate some more funds. If you dont know about it, here's some info -... (more)
