    Need a new Magazine - Oxygen is anti-Primal

    Primal Fuel
    Hi there!

    I'm super tired of reading Oxygen magazines that focus on chronic cardio, higher-carb and low-fat... Along with the million ads that just repeat themselves.

    Since I love reading magazines, I was hoping that someone might recommend better more primal-friendly reading?

    Thanks!

    I haven't found one. There are gluten-free mags at Whole Foods but they are in no way Primal. For cooking I'd look to traditional magazines like Saveur or Bon Appetit. Traditional French cooking, like Julia Child, is pretty Primal if you leave out the flour thickeners. A Primal/Paleo lifestyle magazine is a great business opportunity for somebody.

    The problem is that ad revenue creates magazine profits, not the price the reader pays for the mag. Primal/Paleo eating involves very little packaged or processed foods, fancy fitness equipment, weird supplements, and so on, and thus loses a major ad revenue stream in comparison to most other health-oriented lifestyle magazines.

    I really like Outside magazine. You obviously won't find recipes, but their fitness guides are great (mostly...still subject to some CW) and the features keep me stoked about getting outside, imagine that.

    If "Clean eating" can do a magazine, so can primal/paleo

    Vibram and the many new competitors
    Protein powders (oh please, I bet about 30% of the people on paleo/primal use PP's at one time or another)
    Supplements -lemmme think what has been recommended to me or someone on the forum in the past week....fishoil, magnesium, D, BCAA, KI (just kidding)......
    The avocado council or whoever
    Coconut products
    Grassfed meat sellers
    Larabars (Lets not forget that you only have to be vaguely primal to advertise primal...after all your biggest market are those on the borderline)
    Primal getaways/outdoor adventure stuff

    Oh there is plenty of advertisement to be had. And a magazine would spur a market. I foresee the company that makes the little om necklaces to sell in the back of YJ and the mini runner in RW coming up with a little grok pendant.

    Damn...maybe I need to start a magazine.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any recommendations for you, but if Oprah follows the advice given in her Oxygen magazine, it would give sufficient clues why her weight yo-yo's up and down and she struggles to stay below 200 lbs.

    With all the fascinating info on the internet, I'm amazed that people still buy magazines. Other than having something to take to the bathroom with you, what's the point? (Take in a cross-word puzzle instead.)
