Weekend Link Love – Edition 292

Posted By Mark Sisson On April 20, 2014 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 23 Comments

I am about halfway through the writing of Primal Endurance, a breakthrough book that will change the way we look at endurance training and competition. The main emphasis is on low-carb and/or ketogenic diets and training strategies. I am looking for Success Stories that exemplify this approach. If you compete in any event and have had success training and racing on a low-carb or ketogenic diet, I would love to hear details and maybe even feature your story in the book. Please submit your story here [7]. Thanks!

Episode #15 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast [8] is now live. It’s another great reader question roundup.

A new Paleo documentary – “We Love Paleo” – is in production. Donate to the cause [9] and see the important message disseminated.

Southern California pastured chicken and lamb outfit Primal Pastures wants to implement a low-cost, large-scale method for pastured poultry farming that could eliminate the need for industrial battery farms. To support them, follow the link [10], click “Like,” and hit “Vote.”

Research of the Week

Dairy fat intake is associated with better insulin sensitivity [11], less liver fat, and increased glucose tolerance.

A low-carb diet bests a moderate-carb diet [12] in people with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes.

Popular joint supplement glucosamine extends lifespan in mice by “mimicking a low-carb diet [13].”

Snacking increases liver and belly fat [14] more than eating big meals, even when overall caloric intake is the same.

Interesting Blog Posts

This two year case study [15] on the effects of minimalist running shoes on arch height, heel alignment, and toe orientation (duck feet) is extremely convincing – particularly the before and after photos.

The effect of circadian rhythm disruption on physical and mental health is confusing and difficult to parse, but it’s still probably best to go lights out at night [16].

Media, Schmedia

More and more people are using “elimination diets” that look awfully familiar [17] to uncover and even treat food sensitivities.

The gut biomes of Hadza hunter-gatherers look wildly different [18] from those of modern Italians. The Hadza show high levels of strains thought to be pathogenic and low levels of strains thought to be beneficial without having any of the associated health problems. Big differences exist between Hadza men and women, too, with the tuber-gathering (and snacking) women showing greater levels of fiber-digesting gut flora.

There may be problems with the Hadza gut study [19], though, since “the team stored their Hadza stool samples in alcohol, which can seriously affect the proportions of different species found within them.”

Everything Else

There’s a new kind of attention deficit disorder [20] called “sluggish cognitive tempo,” characterized by “lethargy, daydreaming, and slow mental processing.” Critics are rightly skeptical. It sounds (at first glance) like they’re talking about restless kids who’d rather be moving their bodies and exploring the world than sitting in a chair.

Would you try Korea’s smelliest fish [21] – rotted skate?

This 13 year-old Mongolian eagle huntress [22] is pretty awesome.

Now that’s [23] what I call BPA-free.

This is bound to turn out well [24].

Recipe Corner

  • If you’ve never had loco moco, make it using this recipe [25]. If you have had loco moco, you know how good it is and should try this recipe anyway.
  • Indian cuisine rarely (if ever) calls for pork, but that doesn’t stop this paleo pork vindaloo [26] from being incredible.

Time Capsule

One year ago (Apr 20 – Apr 26)

Comment of the Week

The saying is actually “pore over”–the verb “to pore” means to study or read closely. (In this case, the old ladies are studying the pile.)
So it’s misspelled, but Mark’s usage is correct.

– Actually, the old ladies were figuratively holding metaphorical pitchers full of their ancient wisdom, which was poured over the piles. Ah, who am I kidding? You’re right [29].
