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:
Kris Gunnars presents Top 9 Reasons to Avoid Sugar as if Your Life Depended on it posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "The harmful effects of sugar go way beyond empty calories.

Almost everyone ends up wishing they would have done so many of the things they didn’t have time to do."

Here’s a hint: it would be the most nutrient-dense food available."
