Fueling to Perform…with Food

“Just get the calories in, it doesn’t matter where they’re coming from.”   “As an endurance athlete, you need to consume a lot of carbs to fuel that training.” “You can’t train too long on an empty stomach; you’ll get dizzy and it could be dangerous.” Wow! It’s overwhelming, isn’t it? Sadly, these three misconceptions […] The post Fueling to Perform…with Food appeared first on The Paleo Diet™. SOURCE: The Paleo Diet™ - Read entire story Read more

Loren Cordain, Ph.D. Response to Mouse Study

I have previously commented upon this single short term mouse study. You are correct in stating the obvious, nowhere in the original article did the authors indicate they were testing a “The Paleo Diet” but rather a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet in an unusual animal model (prediabetic New Zealand Obese (NZO) mice, rather than in humans.   […] The post Loren Cordain, Ph.D. Response to Mouse Study appeared first on The Paleo Read more

Zoo Animals Become Psychotic. You Are an Animal. Run.

Richard Manning, author of Against the Grain (2004), frames civilization as a human zoo that makes us all psychotic. Hunter-gatherers who observe domesticated humans literally think we’re crazy. A few important snippets: “Think of an animal in the zoo. It’s deprived of things that keep that animal going — the smells, the sights, the sounds, the instincts… the hunting. And they become psychotic. Literally psychotic. Read more

Recipe: Mustard-Cider Glazed Pork Shoulder

Image img_1510.jpg

I’ma just say this right upfront: I can take no credit for this recipe. I’m merely sharing what was a delicious baby born of the combination of this recipe’s flavors and Melissa Joulwan’s pork shoulder carnitas technique.

Building a Paleo Intentional Community

This post originally introduced the Intentional Paleo Community Facebook Group August 22, 2012. The gist was to initiate work toward a theoretical framework, build a real-world community, and develop a template replicable by others wishing to do something similar. During my recent [failed] fatbiking trek from the U.S. to the Yukon/NWT border area of B.C. (don’t ask… yet), I had a lot of time to think. I also had a lot of opportunity Read more

Is Your Brain Hardwired for Junk Food?

While the title of this article may at first seem implausible (and somewhat scary), a new scientific study seems to show that an inborn preference for junk food is not only possible – it may be affecting more of us than ever could have possibly been imagined.
