Hello, I bought the book on the weekend and had great intentions on reading it in full, but I found it incredibly boring! I dont know if I am suffering 'diet book fatigue' (I just made that up but it feels real!) Or if it was the first chapter... (more)
Hi PaleoHackers, As some of you may know, I am a big fan of Paleo and launching my new book later this month, The 4-Hour Chef. Patrik and I were chatting the other day, and he suggested that we have some fun, and that I involve the PaleoHacks... (more)
Bare with me, I've posted a few questions on this site and have answered a few. Concerning Paleo, I feel like I know a decent amount of knowledge. I've read Robb Wolfs "The Paleo Solution". And I'm always reading on this site and other sites... (more)
I'm curious if anyone knows of a distance learning program for nutrition that supports the paleolithic philosophy of eating, even if it's not strictly paleo... Any ideas?
I just read my question and it sounds angsty! I don't want to ask if you spend all day worrying (such a waste of time) but rather do you trust less? For example I have only been Paleo since the end of January 2011. This has been a steep learning... (more)
Hej Folks, i just got a newsletter from frederic patenaude. He is a raw vegan advocate, with focus on a low fat diet. So in the whole thing different than paleo. I dont wanna bash anyone or any diet. More this is a text, or some ideas of someone... (more)
I had a lot of these symptoms. His solutions for them are idiotic though. Geez, if only some pathetic little flax and hemp seeds could have saved me! I was already eating those things + B12 supplements and they did nothing.
I'm now taking extra time in the grocery store to read every label, and do my research, and evaluate all things anew, because you never know what is in the thing till you read the label...( deep breath ) The stores are full of things I would not... (more)
I'm always eager to learn more and more about nutrition, but when it starts to go down the biochemistry path I get lost easily. Is there any good textbooks out there that would introduce the most important concepts for people without any... (more)
I saw that we have an ongoing thread for Paleo quotes so I thought it'd be cool to have a place to put new Paleo articles that come out. Especially easy to digest ones such as this Reuters article. Reuters: Cancer Cells Slurp Fructose. (Fruit... (more)
So. As I mentioned in a previous thread instead of hiring a nutritionist for a "Lunch & Learn" at work this month, I talked them into letting me give the presentation! \o/ My audience is about 30 men, blue collar workers, middle/middle... (more)
One thing I have noticed (and admired) about the Paleo movement: In addition to the inevitable impulses toward boosterism and dogmatism, there's a self-correcting trait among leading theoreticians and practitioners. The street word for this... (more)
Sometimes this is simply a matter of these guys needing to re-emphasize caveats, exceptions, or context-dependent options already mentioned or implied in prior work, but it gets filtered out and flattened when delivered to general audiences.
Here's a little bit of background, with regards to what made me ask this: I was thinking about how it would be easier for me to keep to my eating habits if my boyfriend would agree to try and eat in a similar manner, but I don't want to push him,... (more)
Have you seen this paper yet? It's 21 pages long but I thought it could be a really useful tool to either refresh your "paleo" knowledge, or to use when needing to direct someone to something thorough and comprehensive. I have for one already... (more)
I love to nerd out on some good paleo reading, but I'm not sure where to go next. I would like something a little more in-depth, science-laden and preferably somewhat up to date. I've read the following: - Paleo Solution - Primal Body, Primal... (more)
Hmmm. You want something "a little more in-depth, science-laden and preferably somewhat up to date" ... sounds like the Jaminets' Perfect Health Diet would fit the bill quite nicely.
So I recently got a job at a very prestigious university, and have the opportunity to audit a course next semester, and possibly take courses for credit the following fall. Who has a recommendation on what to study to learn more about the paleo... (more)
Hi, If someone votes you down or you lose reputation because of something you've said either due to incorrect information or being off topic etc, how do we know why? While I totally agree that the voting should be anonymous, it might be helpful... (more)
