First off, I just want to say thanks to everyone in the CrossFit community. I started about 7 weeks ago and cannot believe the change in just about every aspect of my life. This is a fantastic, supportive community and I'm proud to be a tiny part of it.

Now to da' business: I'd never heard of the Paleo diet prior to starting CrossFit and, while I haven't converted (yet), I'm definitely intrigued and have been doing as much research as possible: Cordain's extremely helpful site,, PubMed, web searches, and forum searches here. However, as many of you know, the information is scattered around the web, difficult to pull together, and somewhat intimidating for folks new to the idea.

So, I was thinking that it might be beneficial to have a sticky thread at the top of Nutrition devoted specifically to Paleo research sources. Posters could give a brief description of the article, post the link, and also tell whether it's full-text, abstract, etc. Discussions about specific articles should probably be in other threads, so as not to make the sticky longer than it already will be.

I think it would be important to have a knowledgeable moderator for the thread. I nominate Dr. G, but I know he's a busy guy...

Just a thought. I'm knee-deep in searches and articles and thought it would be a good service to keep others from doing the same over and over again.

Posts: 507 (SFW) has a section dedicated to Paleo. I'm all for one here too, but check it over there and see what you can find.

This ain't rocket science.
Spear it or pick, the eat it.

Paleolithic people ate whatever they could stick a spear into and kill, or pick off a tree or right out of the ground. Jay must be fond of haiku's; they're fun.

Basically fruit, veg, meat/fish, monounsaturated oils (olive, flax etc), some nuts. I'm assuming eggs are OK too.
No dairy, no grains, no sugar.
