He needs help from an editor or something. Not all of us have experienced the health improvements that are claimed for PB, so it's good to get other views. Not sure I'll be downing loads of ice cream any time soon though.
    A raw carrot every morning will help kill your intestinal bacteria, too.

      Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

        I really don't get why people follow him, Roddy, and Peat. They have this crazy sugar diet and when that doesn't work they take unprescribed thyroid meds.
        Me either, what put me right off was seeing Cheeseslaves photo on her blog, she had put on loads of weight since using his methods. Last thing I would want is to put on 30+ pounds and look all bloated up.

        I also dont understand why they advocate a high pulse rate. That baffles me, I always thought a lower pulse rate was better for health.

          Many people have a higher pulse rate...feeds to the CW nonsense.

            Yep, when you, me, Drumroll, and Otzi all agree, I would generally watch out for flying pigs but this gimmick is just too ridiculous.

            Having a high body temp and a high pulse rate at rest serves no function. It's like sitting there at a stoplight going VROOM, VROOM on the gas pedal. You're not going anywhere any faster. Just putting lots of wear and tear on the engine.

            But if Danny Roddy tells balding men it will make their hair grow back, they will buy just about any nonsense.

                The reality is that the issues surrounding metabolic health are MUCH more complicated than this and you can elevate your metabolism/metabolic health to levels that are often bad for those of us with normal activity levels.

                A lot of what he says is good stuff, but he ignores a good amount of the deeper complexities with metabolic health. One would do well not to blindly follow all of his advice and be careful to take what he says with a grain of salt.

                Body temp isn't the be-all to end all for metabolic issues.
                After spending the $1.00 and reading the book this made me laugh out loud.

                Since I am tired of cold hands and feet I tried cutting way back on the coffee, tea and water yesterday. That alone saved me much more than the dollar. I do not buy the woo woo that drinking soda can be healthful at all. I do wonder about how CW promotes so many fluids and if it does result in needless headaches, anxiety, stress, etc. It could just be placebo effect but I did feel calmer yesterday. I have been a high activity person who believed that if you're loosing fluid you needed to replace it and if you feel thirsty from exercise you've waited to long. Like I wrote earlier, if it causes the cold hands and feet to stop it's a win for me at that.

                  Nice, comparing a human body with an automobile. Except, that "vroom vroom" is not causing wear and tear, exactly the opposite in fact.

                  Check your facts.

                    Maybe the "facts" have been checked and found wanting.

                            Peat et al are conducting experiments. But so are we all. My take is that deliberately raising metabolism is likely to raise incidence of defects in growth/repair. That is, cancer. Not an experiment I'm willing to undertake. Will look forward to the long term studies
                            Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

                            Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

                              Yea but we all know it was there....I wonder if it was a sock-puppet.

                                It makes sense to me that increasing the rate of growth of the good stuff in your body might also increase the rate of growth of the bad stuff such as bad bacteria, yeasts, cancer, ect.

                                Isn't the opposite effect one of the reasons that fasting is so effective? It kills off things in your body because of a lack of energy to feed them and naturally prefers to kill the sick and damaged cells in your body (cancer et all again) before it goes after anything ese.
                                "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."
