Here’s an inspirational and short introduction to low carb Paleo – written by Tyler Massas, the man in the pictures above:

Animals get sick when fed bread and snacks instead of their natural diets. Of course, the same goes for people.

Having unfortunately missed the PaleoFX 2012 conference I immediately jumped at this chance. You can now preorder the DVD set containing 40+ hours of presentations, seminars, cooking demos and interviews.
Order this month and you get the DVD set for $197, after that the price goes up to $247. Not exactly cheap, but less than a trip to Austin would have been.

What is the Paleo diet and why should you care? Well, as you know it’s the original human diet and it’s probably still the healthiest way you could eat (unless you have a health reason to reduce your carb intake even more).
Here the world’s #1 expert, professor Loren Cordain, explains what you need to know and answers common questions. For example: Is Paleo always low carb? What’s wrong with vegan diets? And what single dairy product is ok to eat?
This is the interview we did at the ASBP obesity conference in Denver last month. If you like it feel free to share it!
This looks really interesting. A new documentary called “In Defense of Fat – Rethinking the Bad Science Eating at America’s Health” is just starting pre-production. The plan is to – among other things – interview a number of people including Mark Sisson, dr Robert Lustig… and me. This movie could possibly make a significant difference.
Here’s the thing. The producers need to raise money to help them start production. They need combined pledges of $50 000 in 30 days (in portions as small as $1) otherwise this attempt at funding will fail. Completing that mission should be difficult but not impossible. Here’s how it’s going:
I decided to help out. Check out my pledge: Continue Reading →
Why do so many people get obesity, diabetes and heart disease today? Perhaps the answer lies in evolution. But amazingly “modern” nutrition science pretty much ignores human evolution.
It’s been 153 years since Charles Darwin published his revolutionary book On the Origin of Species – but nutrition science hasn’t yet noticed. That’s why they’re stuck at a medieval level. That’s why dietitians usually are no help for people suffering from obesity or diabetes.
Professor Loren Cordain is perhaps the worlds number one expert on the evolution of the human diet. Here are a a few of his slides from the recent ASBP obesity conference. They tell us a lot: Continue Reading →
Yes! I finally got to see the new film In Search of the Perfect Human Diet and it’s really good.
I won’t tell you what the Perfect Human Diet is – you’ll just have to see the movie. I can give a clue though: this is not a vegan movie. It’s based on evolution and science, not wishful thinking.
The movie features interviews with luminaries like Dr. Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf, Gary Taubes, Dr. Michael Eades, Dr. Barry Sears and Dr. Jay Wortman. Since the movie has been in production for a number of years some of them look a bit younger than usual. Apparently the perfect diet does not promise eternal youth – we’ll have to do with health and well-being.
I want one of these in my home town:
This amazing TED story was published two weeks ago and already has about 60 000 views on YouTube. I suppose many readers have already seen it, but for the rest of you – here it is.
Dr Terry Wahls developed severe MS and despite cutting-edge medication she got worse and worse. A few years ago she could hardly move, couldn’t get out of her special chair. Then she started eating real food, hard-core Paleo. Probably the healthiest food you could find. She didn’t have time to discuss it in her talk but she also started taking vitamin D. She emulated a hunter-gatherer life.
Now, a couple of years later, she is walking, bicycling and riding again. Pretty amazing.
This is just an anecdote, it doesn’t really prove anything by itself. But there are many reasons to believe that our modern lifestyles and modern junk food is making millions of people sick. Dr Wahl’s story is a fantastic illustration of what could be possible.
Have you listened to the Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcasts? If not, you should.
Jimmy Moore has been interviewing the biggest names in diet and health for years now, and his pace is incredible. He is up to about four guests a week. That’s two guests per show. He should probably break them up to make it easier to listen to your favorites (also, attention spans are short on the internet), but I digress.
Every year Jimmy’s readers/listeners vote for five guests from the past year to return for “Encore Week”. This year’s returning guests are: Paul Jaminet, Gary Taubes, Dr. William Davis, Dr. Jack Kruse and, I’m happy to report, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt (that’s me). Click on the names for this year’s shows.
Encore Week will probably appear some time in January (and I’ll make sure to be recorded with excellent sound this time). If you have any questions that you’d like Jimmy to ask us you can mail them to email@example.com.
