    Great idea. I hope this gets off the ground. Need to get the word out, have some bloggers endorse it.

    That's the problem, I'm not an artist and have no idea how to come up with a good design. You should solicit some sketches, get them designed by your aunt, and sell them to us.

    I've seen that one, but I'm looking for one that's explicitly paleo... one that someone would see and then make the connection between evolution and health.

    Paleo T-shirts?

    Other than Mark's "Grok On" shirts, I can't find any decent paleo shirts. I looked everywhere: zazzle, cafepress, googled for it...

    I particularly want one that explains the evolutionary argument...

    I checked with Gary about copyright issues and his editor contacted me to let me know that I can leave it up for "a limited time" until Knopf asks me to remove it. So be sure to save a copy of the...

    I emailed it to Mark as well. I sure hope he puts it in the next Weekend Link Love edition. That would really help to inform people about it.

    Yeah, having notes is great as a refresher, so you don't have to re-read. I often take notes on good books that I want to remember long term.

    I'm not saying they're right, it's just good to hear some criticism when something becomes a quasi-faith. What if the benefits of organic are way overblown??

    Give 'em a chance. Is it so hard to consider that the organic movement has become a matter of faith instead of fact? Gotta look at both sides of the story.


    p.s. I agree, home-grown veggies taste...

    @marika: meat doesn't look like a very good source of vitamin E. SerialSinner's link shows that grass-fed has 5 mg per kg, which means 0.5 mg per 100g serving of meat. That's puny compared to the 15...

    So to sum up the thread, we've established so far that:

    the omega benefits of grass-fed beef are insignificant, because there are hardly any omegas in them to begin with.

    CLA is good and the...

    @marika: Yes, the grass-fed ratio is around 4-5 and grain-fed is 8-9. But my point is that the absolute amount of omega 3 is tiny (less than 0.1 g per 100g serving). So it's not going to have any...

    I know that organic grass-fed is vastly superior to factory farmed grain-fed meat. However, I found a local farmer who sells clean organic pork raised on barley and clover that he grows. I did some...

    My calorie estimate is probably off. I'm running some data through fitday and it looks more like 2400-2500 calories (depends on the fattiness of the meat): 130g protein, 170g fat, 85g carb. (Who knew...

    Thing is, this isn't a low calorie diet. My normal intake is 1885 cal and I'm shooting for 1820 on high-carb, so only a 65 calorie deficit (tiny). Normal diet is a 14 block zone but with 90g carb and...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the whole point of the "carb hypothesis" that carbs, not calories, determine fat accumulation?
