Primal Fads

I’ve discovered a publication that bills itself as

the first, and only, print magazine dedicated to the Paleo/Primal lifestyle.

                     

That’s me doing chin-ups after I gave up Twinkies and Diet Cokes. (Just kidding. That’s a paleo man from the magazine’s website, showing off his paleo strength.)

    Paleo Man would gain more paleo cred by using tree branches for pullups. 

    Pretty keen on checking out what’s in the paleo lunchbox though…

    Paleo kitchens may have had granite “tabletops” but a refrigerator?

    I notice that the website says-

    “you’ll be able to create meals with amazing flavors and a “straight from the farm” taste! ”

    Farm. Hmm…

    Rumor has it they are looking for an author to write an article on the  proper way to delouse friends and family.

    The paleo diet includes principles and practices that are supported by research although maybe not by the “scientific establishment” (yet).  These include favoring greens and vegetables over grains high in carbohydrates, avoiding fructose (sugar), and exercising in intense but short bursts.  A further description with more on the rationale can be found at this site:

    A key idea of this approach is that the tendency of modern Americans to be overweight and suffer a high rate of Type II diabetes is due to our diet loaded with processed grain products high in carbohydrates and sugar.  I try to follow the diet and exercise regimen outlined in the above link.  My weight has fallen and I feel fine. 
     
    This diet goes against the grain, so to speak, of modern dietary science which promotes a diet high in processed grains.  But, as you know, I am not a big respecter of “consensus science.”
