Menace to Society: North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition (NCBDN)

Today I have a story for you about heroes vs. villains…about the innocent vs. the guilty, the benevolent vs. the parasite, and the honest vs. the automatic liar. In the end, it’s really a story about evil, corruption, and force. But this is the Court of the Internet, so you get to judge for yourselves….…...

Ice Cream with Bacon Bits

I didn’t suppose this was really anything new, given the vast array of things that seem to come with bacon—not to mention the saying that everything’s better with bacon. I’ve even tried one of the dark chocolate bar brands that contains tiny bits of bacon—not enough in my view. …I engaged in two indulgences on……...

Heading Out

Taking the rest of the day and weekend off and heading out of town, since I’ll be turning 51 on Sunday. Circumstances could be better. The bit of possible food poisoning incident I blogged about the other day appears to have morphed into a full blown head cold, with all the usual symptoms. But that’s……...

More Clues Toward Determining Optimum Vitamin D Levels

Yesterday I got an interesting email from The Vitamin D Council reporting on a new study that measures the vitamin D levels of the Masai and Hadzabe of Africa. It seems there’s a good amount of epidemiology for vitamin D levels in people with various illness and disease; as well, there’s epidemiology for disease incidence……...

What Do You Do When You’re Sick?

Last evening, I went to dinner with Dave Asprey of BulletProofExcec, Grace—AKA Dr. BG—of AnimalPharm (link removed), and Patrick, creator of PaleoHacks. Grace’s lovely sister and my lovely wife Beatrice were also in attendance. It was at Birk’s, in Santa Clara. They have grassfed steaks. Dave knew this, and actually metioned it in the podcast……...

Vitamin K2, Menatetrenone, Weston A. Price Activator X…or Whatever…It’s Amazing

Among the many hacks we do in this Paleosphere, pushing out crap food in favor of real, nutrient dense food has to be the biggest bang for the buck. As I’ve blogged before but is hard to overemphasize, nutritional density counts for Big Lots. For review: 4 ounces of liver vs. 5 pounds of mixed……...

The Paleo Health & Longevity Spectrum

Got a comment from longtime reader, commenter and fellow pilot, Bill Strahan. …Have you considered looking at or writing about why you pursue what you do in regards to diet, exercise, and health? For me I consider it a triple point optimization: I want to feel great, I want to perform well, and I want……...

C’mon Man!

One of the more amusing parts of Monday Night Football is the C’mon Man! segment. It’s exactly what I thought first, when I saw Charles Barkley doing the “Lose Like a Man” campaign for Weight Watchers and then today, I see Terry Bradsaw in there for Nutrisystem. C’mon Man! Let’s review, men: Meat. Fish. Fowl….…...

So Richard, How’s the New Paleo 101 Book Going So Far?

I’m so glad you asked. But first, thanks so much to the hundreds of you who’ve popped for it, with zero refunds (just confirmed by the publisher). I’m in this for the long haul, which means: I want there to be something out there that’s inexpensive, quick, easy to read and gets that random person……...

“The Animal Club”

So I’ve chosen the name of the forum and I hope you detect the double entendre. The developers are now working to install and configure. I’ll be using the bbPress platform for its clean and streamlined pizzaz. One of the big reasons I hardly use forums is for all the clutter bullshit. I also have……...

Photos of Yesterday

Beatrice took some photos yesterday of our outing to Capitola. Since I’ve already posted two entries for today, why not go for broke and just do a third? It was an epic day, much like we’ve been having regularly, with temps into the low 70s even—in mid January. I’ve sunbathed in the backyard a couple……...

Do You Animals Want a Forum?

Well, the question is presented. Do you want one, as raucously paleo as I can make it? No moderation except obvious spam? Let me know what you think in comments. And if you rarely or never comment but would participate in a forum, I’d especially like to hear from you and to get your insight……...

He “Woks” the Talk and Talks to the Wok

Every now and then I see something that simply must be shared immediately. But more than that, promoted. Since I’m not the only one with a great talent for entertaining those who show up, I often like to highlight those with far less talent, but who try hard. …Are you kidding me?…because, I don’t kid……...

A Day Off From Book Promotion

I did not expect to be spending all weekend drumming up interest for my Beyond the Blog book. In fact, I had not planned to do anything at all until tomorrow, given the weekend, holiday, etc. And then I asked myself: is that how you do things, Richard? And so I just went for it,……...

The Wife Unit: The Lipid Panel That Keeps Going and Going

This is what my cooking can do for you I’ve done posts in the past about both my wife’s and my blood work; our lipid panels. Interesting to me is how they’re so similar while our genetic lineage is so different. I’m northern Europe and she, hispanic. So here’s the news. Beas Lipid Panel Now,……...

My “Beyond the Blog” Book is Available

Just a quick announcement that the book is finally available after the normal number of snags here & there, including the holidays getting in the way. I’ll perhaps have more to write about the book later. I read through it very carefully last Saturday morning for the purpose of touch-ups here & there. I came……...

My Delayed Eulogy For The World’s Top Intellectual and Writer

I’m guessing many of my most astute readers will already know who this is about. So let’s give a clue to everyone else by means of a quote. Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the ‘transcendent’ and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don’t……...
