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)
Scott - you should write for the Enquirer you sensationalist!
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)
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.
vol??un??teer v??l??n??ti(??)r From Urban Dictionary: 1) The act of giving of yourself to help others. Often followed by a rush of happiness at knowing you've made a difference, but sometimes frustration occurs at going unappreciated or... (more)
Just when I think I can't love you anymore than I already do you go and get all gushy-hearted on us. Great topic! I was lucky to be raised by parents who believed in giving back and we started at an early age. We were raised to be of service to... (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.
Sometimes you think you've nailed it--an incisive question, a well-researched on-point answer, or a brilliant display of wit. Then . . . NOTHING -- a big fat zero or you might limp in with +/- 1 Here's a chance to dazzle the PH community again... (more)
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)
Hi PaleoHackers! I wanted to spark more off-line activity amongst Paleo enthusiasts the world 'round and therefore have created a Meetup Everywhere page. Use it to self-organize and find Paleo folks near you and on July 8th 2010 have a great... (more)
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!
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.
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)
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.
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)
I'm going to college at Auburn University and I would love to get a group together, find some like-minded friends, just someone with the same interests, a workout partner or group, etc. If you live in Auburn and would like to get together, leave... (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)
Several of us, behind the scenes, are working on a project that may help our community. It is designed for the mainstream patient to begin to open their mind and begin a national conversation of the primal/paleo lifestyle to improve over all... (more)
Thank you for the awesome question and the intention behind it. It's a true community service. I've been working on attempts to help friends and family for a while, but my resources as an individual are limited and I can immediately see the value... (more)
Lately I???ve become enamored with the idea of building one of these tiny homes. Thoughts, ideas, live in one now?
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)
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)
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)
