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:
Kevin Geary presents Reboot Your Leptin: Conquering the Fat Hormone posted at The Rebooted Body, saying, "Insulin gets a lot of attention as a 'weight influencing hormone." But ignoring Leptin would be a huge mistake. If you're overweight or struggling with eating triggers, it's imperative that you understand Leptin."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!
