    Which is why I think it's better for it to go into the current Paleo Magazine, especially since many of their contributors are already women, like Amy Kubal, the Paleo RD for the magazine and Robb Wolf.

    If you want to see more women's related health issues, why not just write to them and suggest that?

    That said, I'm apparently one of the rare men who isn't disgusted by women's health topics.
    Just as there are magazines called "Men's Health," and "Women's Health," and dozens of others that devote entire content to one gender, I am interested in an entire magazine devoted to women and the paleo lifestyle. It doesn't need to replace or be absorbed by the current Paleo Magazine. I think the 50k+ viewed thread devoted to "She-Groks" on this forum makes it clear that we certainly have enough issues, as women, to discuss.

    As I've said before, this thread has nothing to do with men, and, no offense, we really don't care what you have to say about the concept of a paleo magazine for women.

    Well, if you wish to be so hostile about it, *shrug* nobody's stopping you.

    Though I think it's a stretch to speak for all women there. Kinda like how male paleo authors think they speak for all paleo followers?

    I'm not being hostile, I'm just being honest. I'm not sure what woman would care what any man has to say about the women's fitness mags she wishes to read. Maybe these women exist, I dunno. Pity, if they do.

    Let me rephrase that. You don't care about what men who are interested in women's health because they care about the women in their lives (who are not magazine/English readers) have to say and would prefer they be kept in the dark about women's issues for the simple fact that they have a different set of organs. Got it. I still think that's a bit narrow-minded and somewhat sexist, but it's your magazine and you don't care anyway, so I'm done here.

    Except this isn't really fragmentation like you're talking about. Really the only person that should believe whether it will be a better product is the entrepreneur

    Again the OP seems rather to like arguing about doing it rather than discussing how to do it so I guess I agree it probably won't happen.

    Go read Shape, then. Or Self. Or Cosmo. Or Women's Health. Why would anyone care if you read it? The editors aren't marketing the magazines towards you, and they certainly don't care if you read it, so knock yourself out. Also, it's not MY magazine, the magazine doesn't exist. I'm trying to discuss with other WOMEN on this forum what we would want or not want to see in a Paleo Women's Magazine. It just has absolutely nothing to do with you. Quit being a freak.

    Well, I'd like it if such mag could include mini workout guides, maybe reviews on athletic, some recipes, maybe some paleo/primal restaurant product reviews, articles on biological and mental health issues, interviews with female athletes, chefs, physicians, etc. What would you put in your mag, if you had one?
    As for what it would be called... I have no clue! I probably wouldn't include paleo or primal in the title though.

    I think it should be called "Grokelle".

    I would like to see articles about how a female metabolism responds to various training techniques, IFing, carbohydrate restriction/cycling, etc. Also interviews with female athletes, doctors, trainers, nutritionists who understand and recommend the Primal lifestyle.
