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 of the Rodeo 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:
Julianne Taylor presents Another take on the study that shows a high protein diet leads to more weight gain posted at Julianne's Paleo & Zone Nutrition Blog, saying, "This study recently hit the headlines as it showed that when people were overfed, those that ate more protein gained the most weight. Of course the weight was lean mass, however what interested me was that people gained 3kg lean mass in just 8 - 10 weeks. How much protein did they eat to achieve this?"Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo! This blog carnival has plenty of room to grow!
