Weekend Link Love – Edition 36

For a personal take on the PB experience, check out Primal Fusion, a new blog chronicling the adventures of living and eating Primal. Keep up with Angie and Ryan as they experiment with salad spinners, sausage, and even…muffins?

(We’ve seen a handful of Primal blogs popping up around the net. If you have one, feel free to link to it from this post’s comment board. If you are interested in starting one we’d be happy to help. Drop us an email by clicking “Ask Anything!” at the top of the page.)

Ladies and gentlemen…

Really? Really??? Ridiculous exercise gadgets are just a pain in the neck. Go Healthy Go Fit explains why.

The MIT Technology Review provides further proof for the power of epigenetic changes with an article explaining how the effects of a mother’s early environment can be passed on to the next generation.

In the spirit of this week’s wild game post, Conditioning Research finds delight in Scottish venison jerky.

The Diet Blog searched the world for the 5 most disgusting foods ever. Winners include a vegetable that smells like a corpse, and a cheese made of maggots. Mother Nature can be a wicked Madame.

And if that doesn’t make you’re stomach flip, head over to Healthbolt where guest blogger Holly McCarthy discusses one of the most disgusting diet fads. Seriously, this one is worse than the tape worm diet.

Like Wall-E? Like eggs? Tada.

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.

  1. I’ve started a blog called The Primal Experiment which is kind of a fusion of primal living and doing P90X workouts. Finding the time and material to post something every day is difficult but I’m going to try and update it at least a couple of times a week. Here’s the address:

  3. The Diet Blog post featured a diverse array of strange foods yet displayed curious Eurocentrism in describing beef offal as “popular in Italy.” In fact, there are few meat-eating cultures that can afford to discard edible innards. A visitor to any large Asian or Latin American supermarket will find for sale in the meat section just about every edible part of the animal, including the heart, kidneys, intestines, and feet.

  4. A neck harness is one of the most useful tools for weight training ever developed, esp. for those involved in contact sports.

  6. There is a guy at my gym who comes in and uses a neck harness every. single. day. Whenever I see him, I just want to cry.
