7 Pillars: Sleep


Second Pillar of Paleo: Sleep

Sleep is usually looked upon as a given, as something you don’t need to learn how to do.  Because it is innate to each of us and the immediate effects of lack of sleep are not apparent, we often don’t value enough this important Pillar.  Let’s see if looking at Sleep from another angle can convince you of the value of 8 dark and quiet hours.

7 Pillars: Nutrition


The First Pillar of Paleo: Nutrition

Let’s start with heresy:  There is no single nutrition plan that works for everyone.  Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is ignoring the success found in diets of every kind, from the strictest Paleo raw elk eater to an East African grain-only record setting marathon runner.  Humans, including YOU, are too varied and adaptable to not be able to thrive on almost anything we eat.
