I recently stumbled on to this: http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/HEALING%20LIFESTYLE.htm He seems to advocate what is pretty much a Paleo diet, but with some differences. He's big on hair mineral analysis to fine-tune the diet, and coffee... (more)
The internet is full of health "experts" or gurus. Sometimes they are media sensations. Other times they are humble and don't claim to have all of the answers. Either way, they still have a group of people that hang on every word and don't... (more)
So I'm sick of hearing spirituality associated with vegetarianism. At some point, eating all those beans are going to interfere with meditation or spiritual practice. LOL. BTW - the hubby and I had much better meditation post-Paleo then... (more)
Here is a listing of our dear paleo gurus. I got the ball rolling, please suggest adds and edits to make it more accurate. Whose viewpoints have you cobbled together to make YOUR viewpoint? THE BEST SELLERS-- These gurus wrote books that... (more)
---------THIRD PARTY EDIT------------ The below hack is old stuff. It's interesting background from the spring of 2011, but you might want to read these more current posts: What???s the deal with PaleoHacks, Dr. Kruse and the FBI? Richard's blog... (more)
Blanket statements and poor biochemistry aside, I cannot stand his poor grammar and lack of punctuation on this site. Most of the time his answers look like they were written by a 3rd grader. I'm expecting to be down voted by his all too faithful... (more)
Related to this thread: http://paleohacks.com/questions/33857. Has anyone here consulted with a guru or other paleo-inclined naturopath/health coach? If so, why? Did it resolve your issue? How far into paleo were you when you decided to seek... (more)
Before I get to the gist of my question, I have to be fully respectful and make sure my overall belief that Art is a good guy and valuable asset to anyone who listens to him is not lost. Having said that, is he now at risk of becoming something... (more)
[MODERATOR NOTE (for PaleoHackers who view answers by 'vote' and not 'oldest' or 'newest'): the quotes in this answer are from another "answer" to this question - linked here.] "However, modern meat is taken from obese animals on the order of 33%... (more)
Robb Wolf's Book Paleo Solution is the only Paleo/Hunter Gatherer type book I have read, besides various blogs and message boards. My question is, do you see the need to read other paleo books or do they just say the same thing? I don't mean... (more)
If you don't want to retread the paleo stuff, I second Good Calories Bad Calories. It's got lots of good facts for why the paleo diet works better than the low fat one.
I'm thinking of purchasing Mark Sisson's Damage Control Master Formula. I'm looking for something that will help with my low energy levels and kick start some weight loss, as well as promote good health, but $129 is way too much to spend on a... (more)
Every review I have seen is a real love-fest with the book. They also mention he goes into great detail on the biological mechanisms behind what he espouses in a section of the book- which is good! I am still wondering what the scientific detail... (more)
He has a (long) list of references at the end of the book, but he doesn't cite within the text itself. (e.g. He'll just say "Cortisol causes gluconeogenesis" but doesn't cite which reference you could find it in)
In his "Primal Blueprint Fitness" e-book ( http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-fitness/ ), Sisson quotes Earle Liederman on defining adequate fitness: ???Every man should be able to save his own life. He should be able to swim far... (more)
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)

Yesterday I compared Dr. Harris with Dr. Kruse : You come over like Dr. Kruse, to be honest : lots of sensational speaking but nothing meaningful except the already known. Patrik was right when he said, later on : Hey Bruno --- comparing... (more)
