“In medical school, I have learned about disease,” said Lightfoot. “However, I have not learned about health.”
And for now, the Internet is the best option that we have in the fight for better health.
Was hard to pick just one quote.
Look, the diet itself is sound; it’s the philosophy that’s bullshit. Eat what you want. Just leave the damn cavemen out of it.
You can lose weight, still enjoy the food you eat, and even go out to restaurants while you do it. Obviously, you won’t be able to eat everything you’re eating now, because if you could, you’d already be thin. But, it’ll be a sacrifice worth making. The best thing you’ve ever done.

Used to drink a lot. Cider and Wine are my choices now usually, even then I usually only have a couple. I do like a NorCal Margarita every once and a while. Oh and every three or four months I like to remind myself why it’s so bad!
The act of sourcing fresh, quality ingredients, “wasting time” by preparing them properly, and enjoying them with good company is what makes the meal Paleo, not just its gluten/dairy content. Paleo is about changing our attitudes about our food – its quality and preparation – and our lifestyles. I think Richard’s point is that it is also about changing our mindsets towards life in general.
So much good in that post.
Stop trying to define the “Paleo diet” and start thinking about it instead as a “Paleo template”.
Love this, like, I hate using the word diet in any way. It’s not something I’m on, it a whole lifestyle.
I eat a different Paleo Diet then other people should.
You have to learn about food and use your head.
People who say they don’t have time to cook at home are clearly not into listening to podcasts!
My favorite part of the day!
The purpose of this survey is to collect information about paleo diet community members, including demographic information, medical conditions, dietary preferences, and physical activity.
