The Primal mentality is really expanding around the world. This week Men’s Health ran a piece on Erwan Le Corre, a modern Tarzan who promotes the natural world as the perfect gymnasium. After you’ve read about his strikingly Primal philosophy, check him out in action.

USA Today harps about a new study that proves you can lose weight on any diet if you restrict calories enough. Is this evidence for you to start a burrito diet or perhaps the half-donut-a-day-and-nothing-else diet? Or maybe good health is something more than pounds lost.
The department of obvious studies (UK division) is at it again, this time proving that lifestyle affects your risk of a stroke. Via Diet Blog.

Before we get to this week’s link love I’d like to make a request. Whoever is sending harassing emails to a particular health blogger that doesn’t agree with my opinions regarding health and fitness please stop. You are going about things in exactly the wrong way and I don’t support it all.

Running wild through the internet like a greased pig at a county fair, it’s the bacon explosion. The bane of vegetarians and the New York Times, but is it unhealthy or is it Primal? Feel free to chime in.
I received a few emails this week from frustrated readers who had read a post from Fitness Fixation discussing the struggles of low carb dieting. While I don’t agree with much (anything?) of what the nutritionist has to say, I do believe many people jump into low carb dieting without much knowledge on how to eat right. The result is a diet low in both carbs and fat, thus not enough fuel to maintain strength and energy. Let me know what you think.Read More
