The Paleo Rodeo #034

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:
Richard Nikoley presents Real Paleo Results: Amazing What a Month Can Do posted at Free The Animal, saying, "Not only are the results fantastic for a month's time but many commenters ring in with amazing results too. Very inspiring on many levels."

John Durant presents Video highlights from the NYC Barefoot Run posted at Hunter-Gatherer blogs.

Benjamin Skipper presents Chocolate Review: Dagoba Superfruit (74% Cacao) posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "This is my review for Dagoba's Superfruit bar. It provides a wonderfully inconsistent texture and complex flavor profile dominant in acai berry notes, but the goji berries and currant raisins don't receive just representation and so still need better chocolates to represent them."

Yael Grauer presents Paleo Experiment: Week 3 Summary posted at Yael Writes, saying, "Week 3 of the Paleo Challenge--trucking along."

Joe Berne presents The Wizard, The Scarecrow, and the Paleo-Hating Munchkins posted at Karate Conditioning, saying, "Answers to the most common paleo-bashing arguments all in one convenient location, with a complimentary logic lesson thrown in!"

Amy Kubal presents A Pill That's Hard to Swallow... posted at Fuel As Rx, saying, "Success Guaranteed - Or Your Money Back!!"

Nell Stephenson presents In Today's NY TIMES: While Warning About Fat, U.S. Pushes Cheese Sales posted at TrainWithNellie.

Laurie Donaldson presents The Absolute Best Potato-Leek Soup - Oh no, is it paleo? posted at Food for Primal Thought.

Patty Strilaeff presents Dr. Su's Egg Pizza posted at following my nose..., saying, "Dr. Robert Su (author of "Carbohydrates Can Kill") and his family have had this breakfast almost every day for the past eight years."

Paul Jaminet presents Dangers of Zero-Carb Diets, I: Can There Be a Carbohydrate Deficiency? posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "This is the first in a series on dangers of zero-carb or very low-carb diets. Why do some people have negative health effects quickly from a very low carb diet, and what long-term problems can be expected?"

Adam Farrah presents Where'd the science go? posted at, saying, "An irreverent blog post that asks Modern Healthcare where the science went."

Tara presents Just Watch the Animals posted at Tribe of Five.
