Things being a little slow around here, thought I'd post link to long, very interesting article from Science News:
Sorry Higgs but the only thing I found interesting in that cite as the
failure to make even a single mention of the traditional role of
physical activity. Hunting a hairy mammoth to indulge in a high protein
feast would have needed lots and lots of physical activity as would the
walking, digging firewood collecting involved in the gathering role of
Not a good argument to justify continuing consuming things
that Primal man did not: potatoes, wheat, rice, and any
other things that have been hybridized for unnaturally
high quantities of carbohydrates.
Not everyone in the tribe chased things. And you "stalked"
a "hairy mammoth". You didn't chase it. He would stomp
you at his first opportunity. Have you ever hunted?
If you really think the "physical activity" argument
is a good one, can always go out and measure current
hunter gathers to find out if the argument hold up.
Here is a very well done study on the Hudza hunter gathers.
Guess what. No differences were found. The "physical
activity" argument did not hold up.
"Contrary to expectations, measures of TEE among Hadza
adults were similar to those in Western (U.S. and Europe)
"Measurements of TEE among Hadza hunter-gatherers challenge
the view that Western lifestyles result in abnormally
low energy expenditure, and that decreased energy expenditure
is a primary cause of obesity in developed countries
The article is a fascinating read!
To quote the author of the article Higgs posted, the physical
activity thing is just another "great example of crowd mentality
It is the carbs causing the problem. Gave me T2 Diabetes.
With your knowledge of potato farming, is there any breed
of potatoes that you know of that is higher in fat and
lower in carbs? Or are they all Diabetes in a bundle?
Thank you! Very fascinating.
I had heard before on documentaries that (they
educated guess) humans would have waited
at the kill sites for everyone else to leave and
then extracted the marrow from the leftover bones.
On these same documentaries, they (guessed) that
certain tools they found were for splitting the bones.
And, if you eat too much muscle meat, you can get
into trouble with excess methionine. To fix that
you would need to consume more proline and glycine,
which comes from gelatin, which comes from marrow.
Reference to the above statement:
We modern men primarily eat muscle meat. It is really
important that we make our own broth (not the store bought
stuff, which is mainly weird meat flavored chemicals).
Reference to my chemical remark:
Here is a great reference on why broth is essential for
Or, we could smack some bones with rocks!
If anyone wants it, I have a great chicken broth recipe.
Add some vegetable juice and a bit of heavy whipping cream,
plus a shake or two of Chimayo (new mexico red) chili
powder, and you have real comfort food!
Thank you again for sharing the link with me!
You know I just realized, I do tend to carry on.
Okay. Okay. I always knew it. Got so much
worse when I dumped the Metformin and the dark
curtain lifted (depression) -- couldn't shut up.
Been off that poison for a year now and the blabbing
is settling down a bit, but I am afraid I may
have always been that way.
He has a show on the Sportsman HD channel where he hunts and cooks the
meat. This week he showed how he prepared hearts from 5 different
animals from cooking to pickling. Most hunters just leave the hearts in
a gut pile or put them into hamburger. One show that may be in his
video file, he cooked a coyote. Very interesting.
I try to keep my red meat intake low for cholesterol reasons. Wild game
is healthier for lower fat content, although maybe not bone marrow.
Only about 5% of hunting is the shooting part. I think we are
harming ourselves by not eating everything or at least more of
Cholesterol isn't harmful to humans. Would you like some references?

No fooling! And fat is good for you. Would you also like some
Some stockyard meat is little better than carrion
Loved the article. It was a fun read. The only tiny
problem I had with it was that he mistook "epigenetics"
for rapid one generation evolution. Other than that
it was a fun and informative read. Thank you for sharing.
You still owe me a funny Paleo/Primal cartoon.
Are you ever going to tell us how your tomatoes are doing?
> "I'm getting tired of the paleo diet."
I was looking for one that was unique to Paleos/Primals. That joke
was too generic. Could have been two girl scouts sitting
around complaining about some-mores. Anyway I am teasing anyway.
But, if you do find a good one, I'd love it if you shared it.
What ?!?!? Were they attacked by mites or something (you can't
see the mites, except under magnification). Did you
under water with the drought and all? Did you fertilize with
organic fertilizers? (Too much conventional fertilizer
will burn things.)
