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 10 Proven Health Benefits of Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "Many studies show that low-carb and ketogenic diets can lead to dramatic weight loss and improve most major risk factors for heart disease and diabetes."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!

There’s no need to feel lonely, angry, sad, unappreciated, etc., when we can just feel fat instead. Saying, “I feel fat.” is effectively the same as saying, “I am choosing not to feel.”."
Laura P presents Surviving Winter: Combatting Seasonal Affective Disorder posted at Rising Moon Nutrition, saying, "We are deep into winter now, and if you are anything like me, the cold and dark can start to get to you....seasonal affective disorder (SAD) can be a struggle for many people in the winter time, especially due to the lack of natural light and outdoors time. Here are some ways you can keep yourself mentally and emotionally healthy this winter, whether is SAD or just feeling bored in the house all the time...how do you keep your mind and body healthy all winter long??"

In the fitness world, he was a man of many firsts and many fitness feats that most young people have probably never heard of. He brought his passion for health and fitness into peoples homes through television long before big gyms, and exercise programs existed. And... his nutrition and health philosophy seems to fit right in to the Paleo Lifestyle."
jennifer Brand aka Alliefitfoodie presents ARE YOU D-FICIENT? VITAMIN D. WHAT’S THE DEAL? posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "Well, I'm back in school for a second Master's degree. This time? HUMAN NUTRITION!!!! I'm so freaking excited about it, and REALLY loving it. My undergrad degree is in nutrition and dietetics, and this has always been my passion. Anyway, my first course is anatomy and physiology. Each week we need to write a series of essays on whatever the subject matter of the week is. It's finally getting to the point where what I write for school is semi-appropriate for my blog :). It's a little science-y, be forewarned! This article is on vitamin D."
