Has anyone written about paleo in Chinese? If not, would someone be willing to?

I live in China, and, having been paleo for about 6 months and lost about 40 lbs. in that time, I've been getting a lot of questions, and the expected incredulity when I try to explain my lifestyle. I'm sure those of you of east Asian descent know what I'm talking about- most Chinese think they literally will starve to death if they don't eat rice.

Anyway, I'm looking for a good Chinese article about the paleo lifestyle. Googling "????????????????????????" (Chinese for "paleolithic diet") does bring up several articles, but my Chinese is not quite good enough to really evaluate these articles, and certainly not good enough to write one myself (workin' on it...).

Could anyone point me to a good article? Otherwise, anyone out there willing to write one would be doing a great service.

I know how you feel. It took me a while to convince my parents, but now my mom is super happy that her waist size has gone back down to the slimness of her college days, and her friends comment that her arms look "buff"!

Xie xie nin! I've been looking for something to give my Chinese parents to read. They still think I'm crazy.

If you find stuff in Chinese that might refer to paleo and want it translated, send it over. Alex dian Woods xiao laoshu gmail dian com.

Yup, in the Phillipines, they believe you will actually become physically ill and die if you do not eat rice. Just try telling them it has no nutrients and already they are not listening to you cuz you are nuts. Don't even bother telling them to not eat it. The only tact I can take is to emphasize eating lots of meat and vegetables with it instead of just eating rice alone. This seems to work much better.

It took me a while, but I have my Intro to Paleo page translated to Traditional Chinese here: ???????????????????????????.

Currently only the Intro to Paleo page has been translated. My Chinese grammar is a bit rusty, so any feedback is welcome!
