The Paleo Rodeo #021

By Diana Hsieh

Welcome to this week's edition of The Paleo Rodeo!

The Paleo Rodeo is a weekly blog carnival featuring the best paleo-related posts by members of the PaleoBloggers e-mail list. The past editions are collected on this page.

What is "paleo"? As I say in Modern Paleo Principles:

A "paleo" approach to health uses the evolutionary history of homo sapiens, plus the best of modern science, as a broad framework for guiding daily choices about diet, fitness, medicine, and supplementation. The core of paleo is the diet: it eschews grains, sugars, and modern vegetable oils in favor of high-quality meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables.
The purpose of The Paleo Rodeo is to highlight some of the best blogging of the ever-growing paleosphere.

Here is this week's edition:
Douglas Robb presents Low Carb beats Low Fat once again. posted at Health Habits, saying, "The winning diet looks suspiciously like a Paleo Diet."

Travis Schefcik presents A Mind for the Paleo Diet posted at, saying, "This is a guest blog post."

Frank Hagan presents Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics posted at Low Carb Age, saying, "From a layman’s perspective, the study is horribly flawed, and grossly underestimates the beneficial impact of a low carb diet. How so? The researchers used a statistical method called “Intention To Treat” (ITT)."

Todd Dosenberry presents Beef Liver is NOT So Offal After All posted at Toad's Primal Journey, saying, "Have you given beef liver or other organ meats a chance? The nutritional profile is way too "perfect" for you to dismiss something. I enjoyed it for the first time in my life recently and encourage you to do the same. Read the blog post for an inspiration."

John Durant presents Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig don't appeal to men, never will posted at Hunter-Gatherer, saying, "This was a fun one..."

Nell Stephenson presents I've gotten too lean- does that mean I should start adding grain back in? posted at TrainWithNellie.

Mark Sison presents Introducing Primal Blueprint Fitness posted at Mark's Daily Apple, saying, "I’m confident that Primal Blueprint Fitness (92 page free eBook) is the right formula for people of all ages and skill levels to get lean and functionally fit for life with minimal time commitment, pain, suffering and sacrifice and, more importantly, with as much fun, enjoyment and ease as possible. No, it’s not the only way to get fit, but it might just be the most efficient, effective and pleasurable way."

Amy Kubal presents Cutting Through The Fat... posted at Fuel As Rx.

Josephine Svendblad presents Paleo Crock Pot Sancocho posted at Nutty Kitchen, saying, "A Paleo spin on a Colombian traditional dish."

Paul Jaminet presents The FDA Is On The Side of the Microbes posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "This is a biomedical, not a Paleo diet, post, but the issue is so important I thought I'd offer it to the rodeo. The FDA is preventing development of antimicrobial drugs with onerous requirements; this will not only expose us to the risk of antibiotic-resistant superbugs like MRSA, but may prevent curing of diseases like heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, MS, and others which may have infectious origins."

Richard Nikoley presents Murray: "I Freed My Animal" posted at Free The Animal, saying, "Murray's is one of the most shocking, impressive bodily transformations you'll ever see. Paleo rules."

Diana Hsieh presents Beef Pumpkin Curry posted at NoodleFood, saying, "My made-up coconut curry recipe -- with ground beef, onion, and pumpkin -- turned out quite delicious!"
