Weekend Link Love – Edition 173

weekend link loveWe’ve just added another date to our Primal Blueprint Transformation Seminar series for 2012. On Monday, April 10, my personal friend and longtime co-conspirator Brad Kearns will be in Torrance, CA, helping people change their lives for the better. Give it a look-see if you’re in the area!

New York Times best-selling author Tom Woods and his wife have just gone Primal. Her new food blog chronicles their journey.

Given the choice, predators choose nutrient density and variety over caloric density when selecting prey.

When (and why) running is sometimes easier than walking.

Who killed lard?

This is how you do the diseases of civilization right, people. First, you get rich selling cookbooks that describe how to give oneself diabetes. Next, you get diagnosed with type 2 diabetes yourself. Finally, you get yourself a multimillion dollar spokesperson deal with the pharmaceutical company that makes your diabetes medication. (I don’t mean to make light of the sad news that Paula has diabetes, but there is some irony here, I’m sure of it.)

Why you should go outside as often as possible.

The problems with boot-camp training from someone who did the real thing.

Tropical Traditions has a nice ground grass-fed bison sale going on through January 19th.

I usually try to end WLLs with a funny piece, but how about a touching, inspirational one? A Lakota Sioux family uses ancestral, Primal eating to restore their health.

Anyone else thinking fat-rat risotto?

– This was Moshen’s immediate reaction to the paper on a high-fat diet causing brain inflammation in mice that got obese eating it. I tend to agree.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
