  • I've been envisioning living in an environmentally friendly and sustainable off the grid primal community consisting of mid size homes surrounded by organic gardens and fruit trees with pastured animals located in a temperate climate. Would want enough power generated to enjoy some modern conveniences (internet connections etc). If any one hears of such a community being built or in existence please let me know.Thanks! - johnsaville21@gmail.com

    • Canuk,

      Sounds like a Paleo Utopia
      If you hear of one, sign me up as well (LOL).

      I have to say that you are an inspiration to me.
      I started Paleo/Primal and Cross-fit at the age of 56.

      Had to drop the CF for about 8 months due to a rotator cuff injury, and have only recently gotten back to training.
      I agree with you, that doing what feels right, seems to take the drudgery out of training.

      I do a modified CF routine a couple of times a week, and set up my own WOD's. Three (3) days a week (time and duties allowing), I do TRX. All bodyweight and I absolutely love it!! Once or twice a week, when I feel it's "right", I'll do an "old school" weight routine. I can't really run like I used to, due to a military induced knee injury, but I can ROW like a mad man!

      When others would run 100m in CF, I was rowing 400m.

      Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks. Both for the information, as well as the "inspiration."
      Stay at it brother and keep posting!!

          Thanks for dropping in Off Duty! Great to hear you've been able to get back to your training. I'll let you know when I find Paleo Utopia ... Ha Ha!

            • It's been a great summer visiting family and friends, but some weight has come back on. This last month I've been indulging in too many paleo friendly gluten free deserts and crackers, organic ice cream, cheeses, red wine and dark chocolate. Time for a reboot to reign in the calorie count, get back to some consistent training and do a Whole 30. Anyone else in a similar situation? Feel free to join in the Whole 30 and let us know how it's going.

              • "Why not combine the undeniable benefits of a real food, nutrient dense diet with the best of what modern medicine has to offer so that we can live longer and healthier lives than we've ever lived before, so that we can protect the life of future generations and we can save billions of dollars in health care costs." - Dr. Chris Kessler - Indeed, why not?

                • I started a Whole 30 last Saturday, (Aug 16th), but I eat so close to that most of the time anyway, it's not very much of a change for me. I'm trying to track down an allergy though, and I'm doing it so I can re-introduce dark chocolate, nuts, and butter separately after not having any of those for a month.

                  It's an odd allergy that it manifests as allergic rhinitis (very stuffed, itchy, sneezy nose) with no other symptoms and the basic allergy testing shows NO allergies to the usual things like dust mites, pet dander, mold, grasses, etc. I know that dairy products can cause "nose" symptoms, but the extent of my dairy before the Whole 30 was a teaspoon of grass-fed butter every couple days, and good quality cheese maybe one a week.

                  I've already quit eating my fermented foods for a month with no relief from the symptoms, so it doesn't look like a dietary histamine reaction. I've done the same for nightshades. I'm kind of at a loss, and I do have an appointment with a specialist, so hopefully with my own experimentation and more medical testing we can figure it out.

                    Hi Goldie, it will be very interesting to see if your allergies disappear. I also noticed more congestion but I think it's primarily related to dairy consumption. I was eating Greek yogurt, raw milk cheddar cheese and sprinkling goat cheese crumbles on my salads, but also indulged in dark chocolate and red wine and lots of tomatoes from the garden. In addition my wife was making excellent gluten free deserts from our backyard fruit trees (apples, peaches, black berries, nectarines). All of this has contributed to about a 10 lb weight gain over the past month. So it will be good to get back to a more strict Paleo approach for awhile. Keep us posted on your allergy challenge.

                    • Heading out to the gym for a HIIT weight workout this morning. Day 4 on the Whole 30 going great - down a surprising 4+ lbs. Wow it might not take as long as I'd thought to drop that extra 10 lbs I picked up over the summer. Ha Ha... It's amazing how fast you loose weight if you drop the red wine, dark chocolate and paleo friendly treats.

                      • Just for fun I recently did some research on average heights and weights of our paleolithic ancestors to see if they might provide some guide lines for ideal body weights. The men were on average 5'8 and weighed an estimated 148 lbs. and the women averaged a surprising robust 119 at 5'2. This is for modern Europeans, 40,000 years ago (Pre Glacial). Interesting, but not sure its applicable to today other than as a rough guideline as we have more consistent access to food and our daily activities are far less physically demanding. However those trying to truly simulate a Paleo lifestyle may undertake food restriction (fasting) and significant physical activity increases (It has been estimated that early Homo sapiens would expend 2900 kcal/day with 1300kcal coming from physical activity- that’s 45%!) that could replicate the lifestyle and end up in the vicinity of those body weights. For what its worth here's a couple of articles on the subject...

                        • My recent researching of the Paleolithic lifestyle has caused me to ponder on my overall daily physical activity. The fact that early Homo sapiens would expend 2900 kcal/day with 1300kcal coming from physical activity- that’s 45% - the approximate equivalent of a 2.5 hour run, has caused me to review my approach. I think many of us have underestimated the importance of physical activitiy when it comes to our weight, relying too much on diet alone. Recently I've been refocusing on caloric expenditure as part of my overall net calorie daily tracking and it has made a big difference in my weekly weight loss.

                          • I had my first EPIC bar yesterday and it was great! Like a soft beef jerky made with pastured beef, cherries and habanero. No added chemicals, just pure food. Highly recommend them....
