    Yep. He's not anti saturated fat at all and he's not as pro dairy as Mark, but it's still in a gray zone to him.

    The best thing about Robb Wolf (and the reason he's famous) is not his book or his website, it's his podcast. He gets the science and he's got practical experience training other people and training himself. He also has a very flexible approach to paleo and won't hesitate to change his mind when he sees good evidence (i.e. he's not dogmatic). Plus, he looks like he's a lot of fun in real life and he seems to be a real decent human being.

    If you don't know much about him and don't know where to begin, just watch this: Blast From the Past

    It's a talk he did at SUNY New Paltz and it's ridiculously good. He explains the logic behind paleo in a superb manner for uninitiated people.

      Robb has changed his stance on a few things due to mat lalondes influence. Robb was originally anti saturated fat due to loren cordain but mat has since pointed out that there is no scientific evidence to back up cordains claims. As far as dairy goes, Robb no longer has a problem with the fermented kind

        Thank-you! I thoroughly enjoyed Robb's talk.

          PS. Does anyone know Robb's current position on fresh peas and green beans? Mark says they are ok on his blog but Robb seemed to be strongly anti-legume.

            Legumes are less problematic than grains but are still far from optimal nutrition. There are better things to eat for sure

              Some examples please? From what I have read, tubers, dark green and brightly colored vegetables would be a good place to focus.

                From what I've read, he's fine with green beans, snow peas, and the like because they are mostly pod, not seed.

                  I think he's probably a great person doing great stuff. His style is a bit chicken-littleish and I prefer Mark's delivery overall. His book was good but not the best one out there.
                  If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                    I didn't like his book, partly because of his writing style - a lot of it was, stop arguing, just try it for 30 days and then we'll talk. His podcasts are way better and they're free. He does come across as a genuinely nice guy, laid back, no airs, which I like

                        Different strokes for different folks. I read the Paleo Solution first before I got into anything else- and I felt he did a good job of remaining scientific while presenting material in a manner that's comedic and genuinely "real". He's a bit more mainstreamed.. "dumbed down" for the average joe but I think that's necessary to get the info out there. Not everyone is into the hardcore science or geek speak like me......... and while I may take the time to dig through scientific mumbo jumbo because I'm a nerd like that- not everyone has the patience to read that type of material.

                        Something for everything. Robb has his place in the movement for sure.
