The Paleo Rodeo #191

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:
Kris Gunnars presents 6 Healthy Sugars That Can Kill You posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "Many natural sugars are marketed as healthy, but they are just as bad (if not worse) than regular sugar. Here are 6 'healthy" sugars that can kill you."

Kevin Geary presents The Definitive Guide to Calories posted at The Rebooted Body, saying, "Your permission slip and ultimate reference point for ending the obsession with calorie counting and tracking."

Ruth presents Paleo Cooking: Like Regular Cooking, Only Better posted at Paleo Diet Basics, saying, "Sometimes the changes between a paleo and a non-paleo meal are subtle, but they make all the difference."

Eileen Laird presents Angie's Success Story posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "Angie Alt has 3 autoimmune conditions: celiac disease, endometriosis and an autoimmune skin condition. During the 15 years it took for her to be fully diagnosed, she endured numerous hospital visits, extreme pain, and psychiatric symptoms that made her consider checking herself into a mental hospital. The gut-brain connection is real, folks! The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol not only restored her physical health, but her mental health as well."

Steve Kirsch presents The Serious Post (Time to make a change?) posted at The Paleo Drummer, saying, "There's an age that you'll reach when suddenly you have to stop screwing around and get serious about good health, nutrition, exercise and sleep. This one's about noticing before it's too late."

Neely Quinn presents What's The Right Serving Size for Me? posted at Paleo Plan.

Max presents Why I Stopped Following The Paleo Diet posted at CavemanCollege.

Help me, help you have a better paleo experience."

Melissa,a.k.a. Cavechic presents National Nutrition Month is coming! Paleo-cane is too. posted at Paleo Connections, saying, "Join me in prepping for releasing an onslaught of paleo nutritional information during National Nutritional month coming up in March 2014. I'm sure there will be a lot of misinformation being spread from bad nutrition dogma sources. Stop by and see suggestions on what to write about and how to prepare for a blogging hurricane of paleo information or (paleo-cane)."
