START HERE

If you haven’t read the About page yet, that is probably a good place to start. What next? Well, that depends on why you are here. Have you heard about the Paleo Diet but don’t have a clue what it is? Great! Maybe you already know a little about it but are ready to take it to the next level. That’s cool too. Maybe you know everything there is to know about it but are looking for different perspectives or ideas on how to integrate this primitive knowledge into modern day life. Maybe you’ve never heard of anything Paleo related, your search engine somehow pointed you here or maybe we met somewhere and got to talking health and fitness and I told you check out this site.

However you got here and whatever you are searching for, my goal, my passion, my gift to you is to share my knowledge and experience of all things Paleo to enrich your life to the fullest. My focus is to do this as efficiently as possible. I’m not a scientist, nutritionist, or certified personal trainer. I am an intelligent human being and successful self coached athlete though. It has been my experience that other Paleo resources are either 1.not engaging enough 2. too unorganized 3. have too much information 4. have too little information 5.don’t encompass the whole Paleo picture 6. don’t really provide common sense solutions to adapting Paleo principles in today’s world, or 7. have some combination of these shortcomings. I could babble all day about the studies and the science behind the findings, but if you can’t understand it, I have failed. If the info is too long winded and you quit, I have failed. If it does not stimulate you and get you to thinking how it can apply to your situation, I have failed!

So, I invite you to stay a while (not too long though, sleep and playtime are critical elements of the Paleo Lifestyle!) and absorb as much of this useful information as possible.

I premise a lot of the material on this site from Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint Laws. Go ahead and get acquainted with these 10 laws as you’ll be seeing much more throughout your learning experience.

The Site is divided into Six Main Pages:

Learn the principles, misconceptions, and applications behind the most important Paleo topic.

 

 

Learn why you’ve never seen a wimpy Caveman. Our ancestors were marvelous physical specimens, and oddly enough, they didn’t have gyms, ab rollers, treadmills, or any other man made apparatus.

 

Diet and Exercise are important, but daily life can be greatly improved by following this simple principles. I also cover topics such as simplifying your life and reducing your footprint.

 

Hunting for your own meat has fallen out of favor with the advent of agriculture and supermarkets, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be a rewarding experience. I discuss hunting all types of game with primitive weapons including bow and arrow, spear, knife, and slingshot. I also discuss fishing.

In the old times, this meant actually going into the bush and finding edible plants and insects. That’s not really a feasible option if you live in a modern city, so this section deals with foraging for Paleo food items in the modern world.

 

Growing your own garden can not only be a rewarding and economical decision, it’s the freshest, most sustainable, most nutrient dense way to enjoy vegetables.

Hey! This site rocks! I had a friend start the Paleo Diet about a year ago, and I thought he was nuts, but I’m 3 days in, and though I can feel the difference of the reduced carb intake, I look forward to my body adjusting and feeling better all around! Anyway, thanks so much for your in-depth site, it has offered me a ton of insight, and I keep coming back to learn more. I will recommend this site to any of my friends looking for starting point on this diet, I’ve already got one friend on board (who also thought I was nuts, but once he read about it, he was in it to win it). Thanks Caveman Greg!! :)

I and several friends are looking for an opportunity to provide clean food sources for people in our area. We live 100 miles from the nearest Whole Foods Market. Do you have any resources that would allow us to be sales consultants ? We need to educate others in this area to promote better health.

I’m sorry I do not. You might try getting in touch with some small food co-ops across the country. Wheatsville Coop in Austin is a good one. Good luck.

Stay on the outside isles where the meat, seafood and produce are.
In previous posts, we discussed a paleo diet that is adapted for people living with lupus, as well as a
specialized diet for people who have rheumatoid arthritis or other rheumatic conditions.
Some people argue that ancient people were not healthier than we are today, and it’s true that some cultures
ate more “refined foods” and had more health
problems to show for it, or just didn’t have the foods available to
make healthy choices, but most traditional cultures all over the world did have an ancient wisdom about their food and lifestyle choices.

The beauty with herbs is that they can be grown indoors
or outdoors. For example, say you had a frittata for
breakfast and have some left over, have it again with a nice kale salad for dinner.
Pour ingredients into greased 9x5x3 inch or smaller
loaf pan and bake at (350F) for 40 – 50 minutes.

First, is Canola Oil an oil I can use for cooking ? Secondly, Do I need to worry about portion control ? Thirdly, I didn’t see the vegetable Corn on the list is it a vegetable I can not have ? Oh and just one more thing How much water do I need to drink per day ?

the general consensus is that Canola Oil is not Paleo since it is highly processed. Portion control is not fundemental to being paleo. the theory is that once you are eating high quality and nutrient dense foods your body will self regulate. I and most other followers find this to be true. Corn is not on the list because it is a grain, not a vegetable. Some organic farm fresh corn every now and then isn’t so bad, but all other forms probably are. Water-my motto is to just drink when you thirsty. no need to measure and force yourself to drink a certain amount per day if you don’t really feel like it. thanks, Greg
