Thank you! I'm honored. Hunger is a curiously neglected subject in the nutrition field: people aren't obese because they enjoy being obese, and diets don't fail because people dislike being slim and healthy. Diets fail because hunger overrides our other motivations. And there's more to say on the subject before I wrap up the series! -JS

Your KGH analysis is right on. Sisson's writting is superb, but at ten-to twenty times the volume, he hasn't said half of what Harris has said.Reminds me of Jimmy Brown's career. Just stops in the middle of it all, to become an actor, or used car salesman !

Nah, not Jimmy. His podcast is popular, but he himself has very little direct influence in the paleo world. People don’t ask him for paleo advice, people don’t point to one of his blogposts, people don’t point to his books, etc… Paleo Hacks and the paleo blogosphere is filled with “Mark Sisson recommends” or “Jaminet suggests” or whoever says, but not “Jimmy Moore says”.

@Nance: I soooo agree with this. J. Stanton is really an unsung hero. This series was massive and sooooo well done and brought forward so much that was not in the awareness of most folks and needs to be factored in, big time, into thinking. And as a formerly obese person, I prostrate myself on the ground to J. Stanton for his desire to understand and to foster understanding at large re: the complexity of obesity and post obesity.

Pray tell how can a nipple massage can be a Faileo? Inappropriate time perhaps? Like in the middle of Trader Joe's when you discover a killer sale on bourbon vanilla beans? But even then it may be okay, given the price is really good.

I would like to nominate Nipple Massage as best new Paleo phrase. It's not new but it definitely can be used in a variety of ways. Actually, it works very nicely with your current suggestions! Examples:

  • That was one Faileo nipple massage.
  • Don't you be nipple massaging my safe starch!

And, well.. Paleo Babby and nipple massage are pretty much perfect together like almond butter and chocolate.

Mer! I would assume that if one were to go braless and put tape over their nipples, and and a NM is attempted that it would be bad. Bonus: @ @ = nipple massage

Pray tell how can a nipple massage can be a Faileo? Inappropriate time perhaps? Like in the middle of Trader Joe's when you discover a killer sale on bourbon vanilla beans? But even then it may be okay, given the price is really good.

@Nance: I soooo agree with this. J. Stanton is really an unsung hero. This series was massive and sooooo well done and brought forward so much that was not in the awareness of most folks and needs to be factored in, big time, into thinking. And as a formerly obese person, I prostrate myself on the ground to J. Stanton for his desire to understand and to foster understanding at large re: the complexity of obesity and post obesity.

Thank you! I'm honored. Hunger is a curiously neglected subject in the nutrition field: people aren't obese because they enjoy being obese, and diets don't fail because people dislike being slim and healthy. Diets fail because hunger overrides our other motivations. And there's more to say on the subject before I wrap up the series! -JS

Most influential figure, male
Dr. Kurt G. Harris, Hands down! I mean, this guy never posts and we are still talking about him! Mark Sisson has to post every day just to come close. I really dig it when he posts about cars and guns.

Most influential figure, female
Denise Minger, by a nose
Tough call, Emily has so much going for her, but anyone who can get TCC off of life support long enough to attack her, gets my vote

Hottest body, male
What no Matt Stone? No Anthony Colpo? Where IS the love?
Mark Sisson, period. The abs, the smile, the niceness. And dammit, he posts every friggin' day!

Hottest body, female
Tie Denise Minger & Melissa McEwen
I'm a sucker for the ribbon around her neck, but I also likes the wavy hair and glasses! Anyone got Sally Fallon's phone number?

Most controversial figure
Write in winner - Paul Jaminet for "The 'Safe Starch' Chronicles"

Book of the year 2010/2011
Perfect Health Diet - It just is.

Best new paleo phrase

Your KGH analysis is right on. Sisson's writting is superb, but at ten-to twenty times the volume, he hasn't said half of what Harris has said.Reminds me of Jimmy Brown's career. Just stops in the middle of it all, to become an actor, or used car salesman !

Nah, not Jimmy. His podcast is popular, but he himself has very little direct influence in the paleo world. People don’t ask him for paleo advice, people don’t point to one of his blogposts, people don’t point to his books, etc… Paleo Hacks and the paleo blogosphere is filled with “Mark Sisson recommends” or “Jaminet suggests” or whoever says, but not “Jimmy Moore says”.
