I'm amazed how this website has changed. Lustig is taken more and more seriously, low-carbing is very popular, ... but the arrogance is sky-high. Kruse, Richard Nikoley, Kurt Harris, Gary Taubes, ... all think they are smarter than everyone else.... (more)
For the sake of argument, Let's say you're stuck in a jungle with your freind and have not eaten in about a week, would you kill him/her and eat them? I probably would. I would like to eat a paleo person. More omega 3's than your typical grain... (more)
Mark Sisson recommends intervals of play, right? I was thinking of buying a 'rebounder' (mini-trampoline) to use whenever I have a spare 5-10 minutes or so... It would be loads of fun with music, no? I just have trouble getting activity in with... (more)
Thanks for the responses. It was a calcium issue. Increasing my calcium completely eliminated the gas. Ray Peat strikes again.
In the comments for http://paleohacks.com/questions/82462/does-anyone-else-sneak-a-look-at-other-peoples-shopping someone suggested a secret handshake or a badge or button that would let other people know you were paleo. I thought it was a great... (more)
So I love eating paleo; all of the health benefits, the lack of calorie counting, and the overall happier lifestyle. However, there are certain moments when I feel the desire to enjoy a fine cigar, a quality beer, and maybe indulge on something... (more)
There are so many inspiring paleo success stories shared here that I can't resist asking: Did you use a large and/or small reward system? Of course getting fit and healthy is ultimately the largest reward of all, but what I'd like to know is... (more)
In typical male form, rather than rewarding myself when I hit a milestone, I invest in a bunch of clothes so that I stand to lose a lot of money if I regain the fat.
In the past few years I've received a few magazine subscriptions for free, but having read their diet and exercise advice I found myself glad that I hadn't paid anything for them! Of course the routine offenses include recommendation of healthy... (more)
I ran across the Whole9 Healthy/F-Off Scale again today and thought I'd ask fellow PaleoHackers to post their healthy/f-off scales. The scale is designed to measure foods along the y-axis for healthiness, and "the degree to which you will tell... (more)
From the original posts' context it seems the stuff that's high on the F-Off scale but low in health is what you deem truly cheat-worthy; in other words it'll do zero for your health but it is so good that you are willing to throw caution to the... (more)
...and instantly thought: "Bad news, Roger. At the rate you're going you'll lose the weight much faster (and less lucratively) than you think." Did you have any nonpaleo friends/family send it to you as "evidence" of conventional wisdom? :) (See... (more)
Here is one- before paleo was 'paleo', Banting was there. great prize-winning summary article (Sophie Coe Prize, 2002 Oxford Symposium on Food History): http://www.second-opinions.co.uk/banting.html full text (free):... (more)
This is a great topic because many of these texts are free. Here is Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A. Price. And My Life With The Eskimo by Vilhjalmur Stefansson (famous for experimenting with all-meat diet, proving it could support... (more)
So, we all love (or soon will love) the paleo lifestyle. The question is remains where is the line you have drawn in the sand between pursuing optimal health and fitness, and being a crazy person who romanticizes the stone-age. I am all for... (more)
If you could be born in any time period into any tribe/culture, which would it be? Would you be born into the paleolithic as a lone caveman? Or a modern hunter gatherer tribe like an aborigine? What would you choose?
Ok, so I am really going to for a Psychic reading tonight. It was a christmas gift. I have never been and could use some ideas... What should I ask? What would you ask? Just for fun -Anything funny that is paleo related? It might be fun to... (more)
Don't ask anything. If they're truly psychic, then they'll already know what you want to know. :-P Yeah, I'm a smartass and a skeptic. It would definitely be a fun thing to try though, even if purely for entertainment value.
Suppose I couldn't cut costs from my 77 bucks a week of ground beef, fish, and sweet potatoes. Give me examples of Paleo lifestyle changes for people on a budget - examples that enhance our lives and bring them more into line with what our... (more)
Me? I prepare for my hunt by shopping the overcrowded Whole Foods in the city with a very short list of items in mind. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UFc1pr2yUU# I simply couldn't resist. :) (Feel free to close if you feel too off topic.) (more)
Reading up on the recommendations of the so-called "Spartan Diet" had me musing, "Oh, please; if you were going to model your diet and fitness upon the regimen of an ancient warrior culture famed for strength, battlefield prowess, self-defense,... (more)
Does anyone have suggestions/recipes for soft, easy-to-chew paleo party foods? I recently had a wisdom tooth removed and it's the holiday season so I need ideas/suggestions/recipes for soft, easy to chew paleo party foods that won't get lodged in... (more)
I don't live in LA but I'm going. You might try registering on the AHS social networking site here and see if anyone from SoCa is there to connect with.
Not a question but I thought the community might like this video. This guy's farm lets nature grow itself. He only has to put in 10 days of human labor a year to maintain it but yields twice as much per acre as a conventional farm. "Gardening... (more)
What would a paleo substitute to this video look like?
Omega-6 and significance
