The value of the forum is no where as good as it was in the day which causes more knowledgeable folks to move on.

    This Forum Has Changed A Lot

    If by "well read" and"knowledgable" you mean of the PB book, mayyybe, although even that isn't true because most of is tried PB as written for more than a year before trying something else.

    I read scientific studies not blogs of gurus. If that means I am not well-read, then okay. I don't even really read ray peat stuff just the studies posted here and there that support his recs.

    You have a problem with fallacies I see. These people left -> these people were good -> these people left because of these people is a leap across a causal chasm with each additional variable becoming less and less provable(conjunction fallacy).

    You also proved my whole pseudoscience point by wanting a forum for your own exclusive safe group where you can all congratulate one another on your awesome progress, how right you are, and the others are just too unhealthy(LOL CAUSE OF THE CARBS AM I RIGHT GUYS) to get it. See: Funny CW moments thread.

    Yes, we'll have to agree to disagree. You're still wrong though. If it makes you feel any better, I've personally all but abandoned this forum as well.

    Maybe people are becoming hardcore paleo and staying away from the artificial light (computer screen).
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

    you do realize that mark has changed his stance on a whole bunch of stuff that was originally in the book, right?

    the way I see it is that you are still stuck on the book that mark wrote all those years ago. a book that he has amended time and time again with his blog posts. a book that actually needs a second edition. a book that has little actual science in it's favor. so if you want to stick to mark's original 2009 book, so be it. but to insult the people here who are past paleo/primal 101 and more in agreement of 2014 mark sisson, perfect health diet, ray peat, etc doesn't make any sense.

    I get it sort of. you found mark's book. it changed your life. you moved on. you came back and didn't recognize the old neighborhood. it was weird and scary. now you're stuck in your shell. embrace evolution my friend. it's what humans have been doing for millions of years.

    Yes. And humans today are no different biologically than before the agricultural revolution. That's the point. We haven't changed. Our bodies were shaped by evolution to function best on a low carb, high fat, high protein diet. Most of you people are loons, i'm sorry, and I can't wait to see PB2.0 when you see how little truly has changed.

    To quote Abe Simpson: "I used to be with it, but then they changed what *it* was. Now what I'm with isn't *it*, and what's *it* seems weird and scary to me. And it'll happen to you too."

    1. Eat Lots of Plants and Animals
    2. Avoid Poisonous Things
    3. Move Frequently at a Slow Pace
    4. Lift Heavy Things
    5. Sprint Once in a While
    6. Get Adequate Sleep
    7. Play
    8. Get Adequate Sunlight
    9. Avoid Stupid Mistakes
    10. Use Your Brain

    Personally, I'm fine with eating mostly meat and vegetables, but that doesn't work for everybody. A lot of them decided to use their brains and found out that adding in dairy, eating more fruit and potatoes, researching resistant starches, looking at Ray Peat's ideas, etc. helped them to reach their personal goals. Good for them.

    Anyway, I think #2 is probably the most important of them to learn. Grains and seed oils do so much harm, and probably 99+% of the people here agree on that.
    In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

    Call me crazy, but humans are humans. Our chemical make-ups are all the same. I call bullshit on these people, pure and simple.
