PALEO = FAILEO

Your brain runs on glucose. Paleo will seriously mess up your health and well-being. It's a scam.
Please don't comment on things you don't know about.

Your brain can function on ketones also. The paleo diet often forces a ketogenic adaptation.

Diet has replaced the "do looks matter" discussion

I like it.

Looks like people on here are getting smarter.

I've just read that pesticides and chemicals can cause obesity. So I'm gonna eat clean healthy fiods, and I don't ever have to count calories and I don't get fat. This has worked for me on a variety of healthy diets, not one diet will suit everyone, and different times in your life/age may require different diets.

Counting calories is the worst thing you can do in a diet imo, I've seen several people fail because they are under their calorie intake for a day so they eat doughnuts not even thinking twice about the amount of sugar and nutrition. :)

Calories in and calories out are the only factors in weight gain/loss, to ignore it is kind of dumb. Certain chemicals can affect your apetite or metabolism and thus change the equation, but the equation is what dictates changes in body mass.

Fad diet. You can't trick the laws of science with a fad diet. That said, paled is better than te trash most people put in their bodies.

Paleo is a lifestyle, not a diet.  Apply it to everything in your life.  Its not necessarily ketogenic either, but rather low carb, with periods of ketosis.  Being in Ketosis for too long can kill you by overloading the bodies buffer systems.  From what I can gather from the paleoarchaeological record the superior hominid Homo Neanderthalensis lived life similar to what paleo enthusists strive for.

Hi guys,

A lot of talk on diet here over the last year. I'm getting quite interested in it.

I did a marathon last year in 4 hours - still running long distances. However, I still have a gut.

So I'm thinking I need to start looking at my diet a lot more closely.

Are people mainly using the Paleo diet?

What are good resources for this?

Thanks HS
Yeah, the Paleo diet is the most scientifically-backed diet. The book "The Perfect Health Diet" is what i'm starting to lean towards, which is like the Primal diet that is encouraged on marksdailyapple.com but with "safe starches" added, like potatoes and white rice. Basically low-moderate carb, moderate protein (depends on your fitness goals though) and high fat.
Yes, the perfect health diet is the best book out there. I read tons of them and this one is paleo with the modifications I had to add for myself (adding more carbs and vitamin supplements for what I lack in my diet.). So if I could go back in time and get 80% of what i know for 20% of the time invested, perfect health diet is the best book out there for most people.
we seem to be on a similar path here man. i bet you're into tim ferriss and the 4HWW too, judging from your reference to the 80/20 principle, and your blogs.
a lot of people in this thread denouncing the paleo diet seem to be saying things like "we don't know how our ancestors ate, they ate wildly different diets based on location, its impossible to eat like our ancestors, our bananas are man made, our water has fluoride...etc. pretty silly arguments, we dont try to literally become our paleolithic ancestors man. we apply the principles as best as we can with a modern approach.  our ancestors didnt take supplements, but followers of the paleo diet/lifestyle still take them.

you're going to tell me that:
- not eating grains
- eating grassfed/pastured meat
- eating lots of vegetables, especially of the leafy green variety(cooked where needed to neutralize things like oxalates)
- consuming a large amount of saturated (our body's preferred source of energy, apart from glucose* but we'll get to that in a second) and monounsaturated fats well as a good ratio of omega 3 to omega 6
- eating nuts and seeds, soaked and sprouted where possible to offset phytic acid
- low fructose high antioxidant fruits like berries (and other fruit in moderation)
- and safe starches in moderation like white rice, potatos, taro, tapioca, and sweet potato

is unhealthy?

people think glucose is so necessary but we don't need that much. you only need to replenish glycogen if you really go hard for extended periods of time.
also, keto is good for losing fat really quickly, but i don't think its healthy long-term and i actually espouse a low-moderate carb diet, not 0-low. especially if you are trying to bulk or gain weight, you want to increase your carb intake.
