Tom Naughton's movie was my gateway into paleo... The exploring I did after watching his movie made me wonder at one point if he was crypto-paleolithic. If so, then he was wise to omit the term "paleo" since it is just insider's jargon, and not helpful in introducing new ideas to the public.

@Andy, chill out and watch the old Planet of the Apes. Future paleo with tacky costumes. See if you can match any of the apes with Paleohacks posters.

Food reward is regressive, and not in a good way. And Paleo isn't a diet. None if this is helpful in any case.

idk if food reward is the "last word" but it sure as hell is way more effective than simply cutting carbs. food reward is the next level for those that stall on the Paleo diet so yeah, i've got another thing coming: better health and ripped abs.

True, *Fat Head* isn't paleo, but if it encourages people to cut their carbs, for *most* people that means bread, pasta, chips, etc., which means they'll be more paleo than before, which is a good thing. By the way,you are aware that low-carb as a diet (rather than just the way most people ate) predates Taubes by a few decades, right? Yes, by all means go read those articles on food reward, and also read Taubes's responses to them. If you think "food reward" is the last word on the subject, any more than the carbohydrate *hypothesis* presented in *GCBC* was, you've got another think coming.

Though I have to admit this movie is really more Pliocene than Paleolithic. Maybe there is a sequel "Two Point Six Million Years B.C."?

besides Taubes isn't even right, his attack on all starches is simply unwarranted. read Perfect Health Diet by Paul Jaminet and Stephan Guyenet's article series on food reward (internet blog)

One of my all time favorite movies: "Quest for Fire" or "La Guerre du feu". I'm not sure how often I've seen this movie. It's very substantiated and atmospheric thick. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quest_for_Fire_%28film%29

I'd recommend "Food Inc", "King Corn", "Fresh", "The Future Of Food" and "Farmageddon".

Napoleon Dynamite is about 50% paleo. It's got steaks, an off-camera cow shooting, a chicken farm with raw egg eating and flies, and Rex Kwan Do.

Think about why Uncle Rico needs to buy a toilet plunger. And at one point he even uses a steak as a weapon. Maybe it's 70%.

Melissa McEwen recommends Ten Canoes on her blog. I've started watching it and I like it so far.

I'm also really looking forward to American Meat.

Not since time began has the primitive scene been captured for the screen with such imaginative realism!

fat head is def not Paleo, its just low-carb (which Paleo doesn't even have to be, imo the best Paleo diet isn't VLC).
