Based just on the diet itself, he thought it might be one of the healthiest. You can read his response here:

    Thanks for the link Silverback, personally the Paleo/Primal approach has been very easy for me to follow, especially the way that Mark has laid out his Primal approach. I suspect that unless you have actually tried it and if their research was based mostly on reading about it for their analysis, then you would probably expect it to be hard - Ha Ha...imagine having to eat real food, not processed food laden with sugars and chemicals - the horror! My experience and the experience of many others seems to prove otherwise.

    • Many initially start a Paleo style diet to lose weight. If that is your goal then getting your metabolism normalized first is crucial.

      The attached article talks about getting your metabolism right and the importance of strength training and diet in that process.

      Three good quotes from the attached T-Nation article:

      "There are two things required for sustained, lasting fat loss: a calorie deficit and a balanced metabolism. Anyone can lose weight for a time, but done the wrong way and you risk gaining all the weight back, just like 95% of all dieters do. And you're likely to gain even more fat than you started with. This occurs in 66% of dieters."

      "Anyone that says calories don't matter has zero credibility. But anyone who claims calories are all that matter has even less credibility."

      "Balance the metabolism first, then worry about calories if needed. Hunger, energy, and cravings (HEC) are your keys to understanding your metabolism and working with it, rather than against it."

        • This morning is one of those perfect Northern California mornings; full of sunshine and the smells of spring after a couple of days of much needed rain. While nursing my Bullet Proof coffee I decided to forgo the gym and head outside for some fresh air and exercise. Headed to the track and did an intense metabolic conditioning circuit -

          25 Kettle Bell swings, 25 Burpees, 1/4 mile run, 15 Kettle Bell swings, 15 Burpees, 1/4 mile run, 10 Kettle Bell swings, 10 Burpees and a 1/4 mile run - intense, painful and invigorating!

          • Saw the NHS physiotherapist last Tuesday about my Sciatica. She has signed me off saying that I am close to 100% again and that I do not need to see her any more. Good news but I still can't do everything I want to physically. There's a bridge over a railway line on my walk to town. I can run up the steps two at a time again but afterwards my left (affected) leg feels tired for want of a better expression and I can not walk as fast as before that effort. Physio explained that it is because the nerves take longer to get back to normal than muscles or ligaments.

            At least I can do press ups, squats etc without too much discomfort so I am starting to gain back some of the fitness I have lost since the beginning of December. A pair of suit trousers have got tight so I am being a bit more strict with my food/booze intake.
            Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

              Good to hear you're able to get back to some exercise, take your time there is no rush, let your body adapt. Best of luck in getting your diet back under control. I would suggest that be your primary focus. Personally eating right is the foundation on which I build everything else.

              • Do you have a salt deficit? That would be real salt, not the pure refined sodium chloride in table salt. A deficit in salt may cause your performance in the gym or on the trail to suffer, your stress hormones might be elevated, you might start feeling over-trained without doing any actual training, you could become insulin resistant, and you may have trouble clearing (the elevated) cortisol from your blood. I buy a product called Real Salt - check out this interesting video...

                  • Good article. The part about being in recovery mode all the time is so true. I'm in the middle of a deload week right now (just play and bodyweight stuff; ZERO lifting heavy), and the differences in my energy, and my nutrition needs, are profound to witness.

                        I really don't think so, I believe it was the three months of inaction. I am working out three times a week and it is obvious that I am gaining my fitness back quite rapidly. I'll be back to where I left off soon and then can keep on going for the best I can do. Be assured I am not in a hurry. I have been watching some videos by a personal trainer and realise I was not really doing perfect form and that is what I shall concentrate on as it looks to build muscle rather than what I'll call "repetition fitness".

                        • I love going to our local gym here in Sebastopol first thing Saturday morning! It's full of men and women in their 50s, 60s, 70s and even 80s all remarkably fit and brimming with positive energy. As I entered the gym at 7 am the old timers cyclist group were just heading out on their morning 30 miler, not one of them was under 60. Jean the 70 year old yoga instructor was preparing for her early morning class and the weight room and cardio center was humming with senior activity. After my weight workout I joined a group of guys in a metabolic workout of kettle bell swings, burpees, sprints on the treadmill and pullups - not one of us were under 60. Pretty cool!

                            Great to hear! You'll be back in the groove before you know it.

                            • Finally someone has come up with how to provide Paleo friendly nourishment to on-the-go athletes, paleotarians, and those in the general public whom are nutritionally conscious - I'd love to see these at airports, mallls, company cafeterias, schools or my local gym .

                                I bought a box of Cacao Nut flavoured bars from these people:- Exo | Made With Cricket Flour

                                Very tasty. Now I've got to see if I can stop eating them until I go to the Peak District assessing D of E expedition teams in a fortnight's time.

                                I'm off to Belgium tomorrow helping to supervise pupils from the school I worked at on the annual WW1 battlefields trip to Ypres/Yper and The Somme. "Ocean Villas" (Auchonvillers) for lunch on Tuesday. Hot soup followed by filled baguette for most. I'll be having ham, fried eggs & chips (Fries to you colonials). Wednesday we'll be around Ypres/Yper, visiting Essex Farm, Hill 60 and the German cemetery during the day and attending the Menin Gate ceremony at 20:00. I shall be wearing my old powder puff (Army Air Corps attached) beret, medals and my grandfather's medals who was in France in 1914.

                                Now 99.9% recovered from Sciatica and able to do full workouts again. Bought Al Kavadlo's Kindle "Pushing the Limits" which is on offer at present. Also Pavel Tsatsouline's Power to the People!: Russian Strength Training Secrets for Every American [Kindle Edition] to have a read of on the coach from Spalding to Belgium.
