Weekend Link Love

weekend link lovePrimals in Seattle are thinking about meeting up with one another. If you live in Seattle and are interested meeting some like-minded, meat-eating, Ultimate frisbee-playing modern day Groks check out this forum thread.

For all the Primal meat eaters out there, here’s a taste of hilarious Brit comedy from That Mitchell & Webb Look.

Want more? Watch the same guys ridicule homeopathic medicine. Funny stuff.

Food, Inc. is a  documentary that digs into the twisted world of modern food production. If you missed its theatrical run, you may have to wait for the DVD release. But in the mean time I’d still suggest reading Free the Animal‘s top notch review of the film.

Ready for more research showing how effective a Primal diet is? Cardiovascular Diabetology is coming out with more support for the benefits of a Primal/paleo diet in battling type 2 diabetes.

Follow Zen Habits and learn to be still.

And finally, it’s rare to find a fad diet spam ad that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is…

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. That diet spam ad was a hilarious blooper.

  3. Awesome stuff with the Mitchell and Webb video I have loved those guys for years but guess its all new to those over in the USA. If your interested in more of their work and like the sense of humor checkout “peep show”

    Again thanks for the great links making my Sunday afternoon that bit more interesting…..

  4. I just finished reading Food Inc. and it has radically changed my relationship with food. I am more conscious as a consumer about where my food is coming from and the types of food I put in my body. Great book!

  5. The Cardiovascular Diabetology study is good, but makes the point the the diet is lower in total calories.

    the effects are unclear if, like me, one is on a primal diet high in calories, aiming to gain weight.
