Not paleo per se, but interesting.

How do you get fired in Iowa? By reminding people that cows naturally eat grass, not corn.
He may need new clothes, methinks.

Paleo is mentioned explicitly at 52 minutes but the whole video is worth watching. I think he gets paleo a bit wrong because I've certainly broadened what I've been eating since going paleo.

Someone I know always wants to go to Asian restaurants. Needless to say, I don't eat half the meal because of the rice. The thing is, the rest of the food comes covered in potato starch/corn starch sauce. The next day, I am invariably three pounds heavier because of all the water retained.
I do rather like Chinese broccoli, and would eat that happily were it not for the darned sauce. What are your experiences and what are your solutions for the paleo diner in Asian restaurants?
I've started experimenting with intermittent fasting. This is done twice weekly from lunch to breakfast the next day, on non-exercise days. Has anyone else fiddled with intermittent fasting? If so, what has been your experience?
I've been on paleo for six months and have lost a lot of weight, so much so that I'm running again. I'm in the process of making my plans for the next six months.
I am five foot nine and started this in April at 190 lbs with a 38 waist. Now I'm 155, albeit with a spare tire, with a less than 32 waist.

Aug 20 157 07 33 Getting facial and other definition on the back, for example. Spare tire still there.
Sep 20 157 00 00 Leaner forearms, ribs, spare tire still here. Second month of running so doubtless there's more lean tissue.
My weight has been one pound of loss per month for the last two months or so after losing eight to ten pounds a month for several months until I stalled at 157 two months ago. I guess it's a limit of thermodynamics: the fat's pretty much gone. What's left is subcutaneous fat and loose dermis. That extra skin simply works itself off at a much lower speed high speed fast loss and it may take a year or two consume itself.
My university weight was 132 and so I figure I've got a few more lbs to lose but I'm not aiming for a specific target other than a BMI of 21.7 which would put me right in the middle of the 'good' zone and I estimate that would be the low 140s. I've also been experimenting in the last month with intermittent fasting (15 hours, two days a week: no food after lunch until coffee the next day).

Seriously. Of all the vegetarians I know, only two are thin and they're avid cyclists and runners. The rest -- and I admit I am right now talking about anecdotal observation and not fact -- as heavy as anyone else.
Feel free to throw stuff at me now.
