Should We Eat to Satiety?

November 5, 2015 |

There are a lot of ways to eat to satiety. I should know, I’ve been doing it all of my life, except for some brief calorie-counting interludes. Read More

Broken Systems, Not People

November 4, 2015 | | 5 Comments

Something is killing a lot of Americans, and, surprisingly, it may have nothing to do with obesity, diabetes, heart disease, or cancer.

After about a century of near-Universal gains in American mortality rates, the tables have turned for one demographic: middle-aged white Americans. This is unheard of in the first-world, where despite all of the problems listed above, death rates have been steadily declining. Read More

Plant Paleo Part 2: Grains, Legumes, Fiber, and Antinutrients

June 3, 2015 | | 57 Comments

In Part 1 of this series, I suggested that:

(1) a single set of Paleolithic-inspired dietary rules is not only futile, but entirely misses the point of the actual Paleolithic example, which shows us vast diet diversity amongst human groups; and that (2) the Paleo paradigm includes a wide array of whole-food diets consisting of various macronutrient ratios and plant-to-animal ratios.

This article will show that a dietary approach with plenty of whole fiber-containing foods, including grains and legumes, is consistent with both the evolutionary clues and the scientific evidence. Read More

Why I Quit Coffee & How that’s Been Working Out

May 1, 2015 | | 25 Comments

I’ve been regularly drinking strong, black coffee my entire adult life; anywhere from 1 to 3 cups a day, on average—sometimes more, rarely less.

So when I decided to give up coffee for a month, I expected to suffer from some serious withdrawals: headaches, sluggishness, lack of energy, mental fog.

Clearly, February was the perfect month for this experiment: just 28 days. Read More

Plant Paleo Part 1: The Gatherer-Hunter Diet

March 18, 2015 | | 66 Comments

In order for the Paleo approach to make any sense at all, it can’t be a diet. Not just one diet.

A fundamental feature of human diets during the Paleolithic era was that there were several of them. The eating patterns of humans were spread across Africa and eventually most of the globe. Dietary variances hinged on the unique characteristics of local ecosystems, the dance between organisms and environments—innumerable variables all at play and changing over millennia. Read More

Bulletproof Coffee Vs. Breakfast

December 30, 2014 | | 40 Comments

I haven’t written up a blog post in some time, but I wanted to for this topic, since one of my main points is quite visual — and that point is that a real-food breakfast is superior to Bulletproof Coffee. So, yesterday, I decided to take some pictures of what I was preparing for my first meal (at around 11 a.m.), both the ingredients and the final product (delicious, by the way!). I also took a photo of typical ingredients for Bulletproof Coffee. Read More

Humans Are Not Mentally Broken

July 3, 2013 | | 3 Comments

This article was written by Jack Yee. He is a listener of Latest in Paleo, and I have corresponded with him privately on many occasions as well as on public comment threads. Jack’s upbeat personality and well-grounded sensibilities always make interactions a pleasure. When I asked him if he’d like to write a guest article, I wasn’t expecting him to deliver such a gem for us. Read More

Fit, Old Dudes Rock & Kickstarting the Virtuous Cycle

May 3, 2013 | | 11 Comments

Recently, Mike S. posted a story about a 72-year old BMXer on the Latest in Paleo facebook page. I like the comment he left with the link, too:

You’re only as old as your grandchildren feel. Read More
