Have you tried testing dairy distinguishing A1 from A2? A1 is bad for me, grassfed A2 casein has no noticeable effects on me.

I believe he pushes selective ones based on the hormonal imbalance and a person's goals for health. If one believes that humans evolved in a mineral-, omega-3, ALA-rich (bitter greens), polyflavanoid-rich (herbs, tart berries), meat/seafood-rich environment w/functional movements, then what he advises (like wt lifting, zinc, omega-3, herbs) simulates it.

Harris's "Get Started" list is an invaluable resource, though I quibble with his current prioritization. The Dr does well drinking cream, but lots and lots of folks would benefit from avoiding all dairy aside from ghee and maybe hard cheeses...

Sure - that's completely reasonable. I'm sure if has something to offer. I have read him, and just don't agree with his arguments re low carb. I also don't like his self-promotion, as mentioned above. His HED idea just doesn't resonate with me either.

CT - have you read him? His criticisms of low-carb diets are reasonable, and stem from his own experience. What I like about him is that his mind is never made up -- he is constantly challenging nutrition dogmas and his own assumptions. His basic philosophy of 'health is complicated, listen to your body, eat real foods' I find quite sane.

For beginners: Whole Health Source is one of the best. Always well researched, always well written. Stephan never preaches, always informs.

I always enjoy PaNu (linked by Bryan). Harris can have a bit more bite in his tone, but it's never over the top. Very thoughtful posts.

If you only read one or two blogs, I'd hit these first. Then, if you want to expand your reads, go to Mark Sisson's list, which Brian provided.

Of course, don't forget Robb Wolf. His spelling, grammar, punctuation are terrible (and he knows it), but his content is rock-solid amazing. Not where I would start a newbie, but the insights here are invaluable if you are looking to refine your nutrition. Apparently I can't post more than one link, but it's just robbwolf and then add the dot com.

The FatHead documentary/blog of Tom Naughton:

http://fathead-movie.com/

Somewhere between low-carb/paleo/libertarian, but always humorous. His blogroll includes PaNu, Sisson, Hyperlipid, Whole Health Source, Protein Power, Free The Animal, etc.

I use his page as a jumping off point - clicks to other blogs always opens a new window.

I gotta give props to Dr. Mike Eades/Protein Power:

http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/

Until reading numerous posts there and looking elsewhere for confirmation, I was afraid of saturated fat and dietary cholesterol. He really started my nutritional education. Great anthropology posts there as well.

I think Peter is the largest contributor of the paleo blogosphere in terms of developing nutrition and metabolism theory.

This is not a blog but a, probably now little known, information recourse site. I thought I would share it here anyway as it may interest readers.

http://www.naturalhub.com/site_contents.htm

Most of the information is 11 years old, as long as I have been interested in paleo nutrition, now but still relevant. It is an anonymous site, no idea who by, but it's well researched and contains alot of interesting articles and information hard to find anywhere else. This inculdes:

  • Wild plant and animal foods available around the world during our evolution.
  • The origins of many domesticated plants and livestock.
  • Theories about evolutionary appropriate diets.
  • Info on growing your own paleo food.

Hi all!

How thoughtful of you to start and collect a list. Great! I have been writing a paleo blog in Hungarian for almost a year now here http://pocakpanna.blogspot.com but I have also written the recipes down in English and linked in a Pdf file in my posts, but now I've decided to open a new blog completely in English, just started yesterday but going to update day by day here: http://paleoliscious.blogspot.com . I would be glad if you could check it out and leave a comment to me on how you like it! I have a whole bunch of cool paleo recipes on my hand about to share on the blog. Decent list by the way! Go for paleo!

Matt Stone at 180 Degree Health is currently my favorite health blogger. He has a ton of dieting experience and seems to be the one guy talking about the huge potential detrimental effects of a low-carb diet (and dieting in general). Wish I would have found him earlier, as I have run into my own low-carb problems.

CT - have you read him? His criticisms of low-carb diets are reasonable, and stem from his own experience. What I like about him is that his mind is never made up -- he is constantly challenging nutrition dogmas and his own assumptions. His basic philosophy of 'health is complicated, listen to your body, eat real foods' I find quite sane.

Sure - that's completely reasonable. I'm sure if has something to offer. I have read him, and just don't agree with his arguments re low carb. I also don't like his self-promotion, as mentioned above. His HED idea just doesn't resonate with me either.

My site isn't totally a paleo nutrition site, but lots of stuff in that realm, plus some rants and training stuff.

I try to keep it simple and interesting. I add links to long scientific stuff. I keep it direct.

Razwell has a great blog where he discusses obesity. This information is hardly known by the public.
