For me, I was lucky enough to stumble across MarksDailyApple about 6 months after I graduated college. I was skinny fat at 200 lbs (6 feet tall). Down to 170 now and in the best shape of my life I'd like to THANK YOU! So who was it for you? (more)
As usual, Paleo's getting more and more mentions. Lots of us paleo folks shop at Costco or other warehouses, and I find it awesome to see this puff piece that mentions Michelle Tam, Diane Sanfilippo and Mark Sission and provides a couple of... (more)
let's talk about the 80/20 rule as a law of efficiency (not the 80% paleo, 20% cheat food rule), whereby you figure out which 20% of your inputs are producing 80% of the results, or in this case: which essential foods should provide the... (more)
as the Maasai looks on in disbelief!
Even if you were completely correct in thinking Paleo is a bunch of hooey, why come here and waste your time being a rude troll? What's in it for you? What are you hoping to accomplish with this?
I study anatomy and physiology and my lecturer said that people usually go into a state of gluconeogenesis (conversion of amino acids and fats to carbs) in around 6-10 hours without eating. This state is brought on after the liver has run out of... (more)
http://www.slowtwitch.com/Features/Mark_Sisson_says_training_is_no_guarantee_of_health._4.html I googled "mark sisson steroids" because I was curious how a 50-something year old can maintain such an amazing physique year round. I came up with the... (more)
I can definitely say I'm paleo and not primal, but I found Sisson's Carbohydrate curve interesting. I was wondering what people around here thought about it. Here's the link Sisson Carb Curve Just wanted general thoughts. Do any of you follow... (more)
I totally like the concept of the carb curve but question the idea that the actual endpoints of the various sections are absolute. I believe that where you are on the curve largely depends on your activity level. If you're a sedentary menopausal... (more)
Has anyone used Mark Sisson's formula and noticed a great skin glow? I have lots of beta carotene in my diet regularly so I always have clear skin from paleo eating and a glow from the nutrients, but Sisson's gives me a great look. Wondering which... (more)
Who will be the paleo luminary who tips paleo into mainstream culture? Is it even possible or even desirable? Do you care, as a paleo eater? The reason I ask is this: the other day, I had the opportunity to have a conversation with a member of... (more)
I was first introduced to the Paleo lifestyle by John Durant, www.hunter-gatherer.com, through an interview on the Colbert Report. It was very interesting to me, seemed difficult, but ultimately made sense. I stashed that knowledge away until... (more)
There is an interesting post on Mark's Daily Apple about this. Pretty confrontational in my view. Is homeopathy 'hogwash' as Mark Sisson says? What about vaccines and the controversy surrounding autism? See this link:... (more)
Some paleo experts don't eat many carbs at all (ala Kurt Harris) while others eat 100-150 grams a day (ala Mark Sisson). I'm not at all convinced that eating around a 100g a day is bad, although it might not be necessary to eat a ton of... (more)
The Primal Blueprint is an accessible version of Paleo that is quite helpful to introduce this way of eating to people who are not interested in going "extreme" in anything. It is especially refreshing when people get too vigilante about Paleo. He... (more)
Probably some Vegan.... lol
I use a combination of Primal Blueprint and ideas found on sites like WildMovement.com For me it is going pretty well. I'm in grad school in New York, so I walk every day, some days quite a bit. Some days I need to lug a lot of books. I only go... (more)
For all those who want to look sharp like Mark, he was kind enough to let me know that it's a Chanel.
I take quite a few supplements, and I was just looking at Sisson's consolidated formulas. Obviously I'm not just going to take the salesman's word. I'm looking for third party feedback. That means, if you've actually tried these products, please... (more)
Hi! After reading a recent thread on paleohacks, I got to wondering what Mark Sisson's requirement of 50-100g carbs for effortless weight loss stems from. Since he states that 0-50g is the level at which the dieter would be in ketosis, how is... (more)
All of these Internet gurus are frauds and shysters making money off of YOU. These frauds can be very DANGEROUS. These shysters appeal to people for some reason. The most scientifically illiterate fools among them include : Mark Sisson Anthony... (more)
Has anyone actually followed any of the meal plans in books like The Paleo Diet, The Primal Blueprint or The Paleo Solution? What was your experience of trying to do this? How practical are they, especially if you're the only one in your family... (more)
