The Paleo Rodeo #116

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 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:
Kristjan presents Not Losing Weight on a Low Carb Diet? Here's What To Do posted at Kris Kris, saying, "Not losing weight on a low-carb diet? Many people lose a lot of weight on low-carb, without even trying. If you're not one of them, then read this."

Melissa Joulwan presents Tuesday 10: Badass Burpee Variations posted at The Clothes Make The Girl, saying, "The "do anywhere workout," now with added razzmatazz!"

Susie T. Gibbs presents Six Golden Rules To Great Steak posted at Fluffy Chix Cook, saying, "This isn't your mama's paleo! Not a spec of Crisco for this Texas Chix! All of the comfort. None of the crud! Fluffy Chix Cook delicious comfort food with a Texas twang and maybe a tall tale or two for the funofit. If you don't watch it, you might find yourself sayin' howdy and fixinto!"

Warren Wilkinson presents Eat Insects! Have a Cricket Bar posted at Plate Smarter, saying, "Chapul, an Arizona based startup, is looking for $10,000 kickstart dollars to produce cricket bars. 'Kick in' $20 and you'll be the first to receive one. I've already paid!"
