Someone in this forum once asked about Ray Audette, the author of Neanderthin. He hasn't written anything in about 15 years and some people speculated he dropped dead from his diet. Ray hasn't gone into full marketing mode like Robb Wolf or Mark Sisson. Ray was a computer tech before he quit his job to write Neanderthin. Ray turned 64 yesterday. Here is his 64th birthday selfie.
Interesting trivia about Ray Audette and Dean Ornish. They were housemates in college at the University of Texas at Austin.
Here is a 48 Hours episode from 2000 featuring Ray and counterpoint by Dean Ornish.
A prominent Dutch social psychologist who once claimed to have shown that the very act of thinking about eating meat makes people behave more selfishly has been found to have faked data throughout much of his career.

Since coconut oil is semi-solid below 75F (24C) you have to let it melt in your mouth.

Some forum members have inquired about the availability of Neanderthin over the past few years. It has been out of print for a decade. Used copies cost too much.
Neanderthin is now available on Amazon Kindle.

This way of eating, like virtually any way of eating, can be made much more, or mush less expensive.
This from BBC Health News allows you to compare yourself to your country and globally.
I know BMI is not 100% accurate especially if you are weight lifter but it is an estimate.
Last week we learned that red meat was going to kill you. But while waiting for it to kill you at least you won't be depressed if you are a woman.
Red meat halves risk of depression
Women who reduce lamb and beef in their diets are more likely to suffer depression, according to the new study.

Harvard Medical School in Ethics Quandary.
BOSTON — In a first-year pharmacology class at Harvard Medical School, Matt Zerden grew wary as the professor promoted the benefits of cholesterol drugs and seemed to belittle a student who asked about side effects.
Mr. Zerden later discovered something by searching online that he began sharing with his classmates. The professor was not only a full-time member of the Harvard Medical faculty, but a paid consultant to 10 drug companies, including five makers of cholesterol treatments.
“I felt really violated,” Mr. Zerden, now a fourth-year student, recently recalled. “Here we have 160 open minds trying to learn the basics in a protected space, and the information he was giving wasn’t as pure as I think it should be.”

This was not a paleo issue. However, it demonstrates how far the USDA is going to for force you to feed your kids according to their guidelines.
From the Carolina Journal Online:
A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.
The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines.
The guidelines say: lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.
When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.
The girl’s mother — who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation — said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a “healthy lunch” would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.

Read the entire story here:
Ray Audette video shows him hunting in a field with his hawk and a sharp stick and gathering at a local Dallas area supermarket. He talks about his diet plan, shows what he eats for breakfast. There is also an appearance by Dr. Dean Ornish to tell the audience that Ray is killing people.
My avatar photo doesn't display anymore. I was going to fix that but I bored with Paleo Dude name. I am part Celtic too but I'm NOT going to be Celtic Caveman to avoid people thinking I am with CCG. Maybe I should look to my other side of the family and be Sicilian Caveman. I don't know yet.
