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:

Vanessa presents Why eating fat doesn't make you fat posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Eating fat doesn’t make you fat because: - the fat we eat, macronutrient fat, is not the same as what makes body size fat. - our brain is made of fat, the main fuel of the heart is fat; in fact every cell membrane is made of fat: a bi-lipid layer! - it's not fat, but sugar that makes us fat - that said, there are still good and bad fats: it's the healthy ones we want to focus on."
