I like to keep my ears to the ground on new and cool crowd funding campaigns. I saw this pop on Indiegogo about an idea for Paleo supplements. I thought it was pretty cool. Check it out.

On a Paleo diet, you macros should look Fat -> Carbs -> Protein. Protein is the last thing you want to supplement. That ad makes it sound like you can skip a meal, eat some of their fortified chocolate instead, and this will be a balanced meal, lol.

Looking on Robb Wolf's site, I see he's selling a fat supplement as a high-quality high-purity product to supplement your ratios into a healthier range. (Not a bunch of random shit thrown together with upside-down macro ratios and advertised as a healthy meal alternative.)

No not spam. Just an idea that I came across. Even Robb Wolf, who popularized the Paleo diet, even has supplements on his website.

To each their own tho, I know many people who do CrossFit and eat Paleo look for something to have for protein powder. I personally rather have a protein smoothie if I'm stuck at work, then eat something unhealthy.

If you think that the Paleo diet hasn't been commercialized, I guess you haven't seen the 1000's of blogs and hundreds of books and even Paleo symposiums.

Like I said, to each their own, just figured I'd pass this along to those who we interested :D

I had my first spirulina smoothie the other day. After reading into it a little bit more, I'm not the biggest fan. (I'm not sure about Chlorella either.) Looking through the other ingredients I see "Natural Sweeteners" and Stevia.. and powdered eggs. It looks like these have a bunch of chocolate and protein in them? This is a lot of stuff I don't really eat / semi-avoid... Why would you want to supplement any of this crap?

Lol @ the "Why We Need Supplements" list. No, we don't need chocolate covered cyanobacterium + protein supplements. I see this Pale Plus Nutrition bullet point list mentions soils are depleted of nitrogen. Are they putting nitrogen in these supplements? (It goes on to say "This also affects ARE food".... "Taking supplements can help bridge the gap that gap"....)

Just bringing it to everyone's attention - I am pretty sure the question above is spam. I also second @Bukowski

This is not cool at all. It is a terrible and misleading commercialization of the paleo idea. Persuading peope that we "need" supplements because "our soils are depleted". Badmouthing valid foods like dairy. Just for making profit.

Um, no thanks. I'll stick to grassfed bison/beef instead. If you must have it, you can get raw whey from grassfed sources, but it's not something most really need.

Sounds like an attempt to use the word paleo as a trademark.
