Is Constant Ketosis Necessary – Or Even Desirable?

Every day, I get links to interesting papers. It’s hard not to when thousands of new studies are published every day and thousands of readers deliver the best ones to my inbox. And while I enjoy thumbing through the links simply for curiosity’s sake, they can also seed new ideas that lead to research rabbit holes […]

Our Primal Fear of Dying

Many, if not most of us, have experienced at least one moment when we truly thought we were going to die. Maybe it was a plane ride from hell. Or a seemingly final diagnosis. A grim combat situation – or many.… A frightening near miss on the highway. A serious assault. Even a childbirth gone […]

Are You Suffering From Decision Fatigue? (Plus What to Do About It)

The world is a maelstrom of choices. From smartphones (iPhone or Android?), diets (Primal or Paleo or vegan?), cars (electric or gasoline, SUV or sedan?), health plans (PPO, HMO, or health savings account?), to entertainment (TV or Twitter or YouTube or Xbox or Netflix), we’ve never had more options from which to choose. This is […]

Dear Mark: Peripheral Neuropathy, Primal Compromises for Love, and Carbs in Ketosis

For this week’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering three questions. First up, what could be causing a reader’s peripheral neuropathy? Could it be gluten, B12 and/or B6 deficiency, diabetes, or inadequate vitamin D? The second question concerns homemade pasta, a beautiful woman, and a dilemma: do you indulge in the former to make the […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 337

Research of the Week The more tofu they eat, the worse community-dwelling elderly Chinese perform on tests of cognitive function. In addition to killing gut bacteria, antibiotics also have the potential to destroy intestinal cells and damage mitochondria. Among Finnish men, frequent sauna usage (4-7 times per week) is associated with greater longevity than infrequent […]

Slow Baked BLT Frittata

A frittata is a meal suitable for any time of day. Served alone for breakfast or with a side salad for lunch or dinner, it’s a step up from scrambled eggs and less fussy than an omelet. Frittatas are generally shoved under the broiler for quick cooking and therein lies the only problem with a […]

Liver, Lobster and Locusts: How Bizarre Foods Win Acceptance

Way back in 2008 I published an article titled Insects: Not Just for Breakfast Anymore, and periodically since then I’ve advocated for bugs as food. It makes sense on so many levels, so I was thrilled to become an investor in a company that was trying to raise awareness and bring (delicious, edible, you-wouldn’t-even-know-they’re) insects […]

Is Your Workout Worth the Risk?

Almost everyone I know has a chronic injury of some sort. Maybe it’s a lower back that needs extra warming up before a long day, a knee that gets stiff on cold nights, or a tweaked shoulder that prevents good overhead positioning. They’re usually not crippling, debilitating, or otherwise serious infirmities, but they are injuries […]

Can Getting Your DNA Tested Help You Optimize Your Diet and Training?

Last month, I received an unexpected email request from a man named Craig Pickering: “Send me your saliva.” Craig works for DNAFit, a genetic testing company using customers’ DNA results to optimize their diet and training. He’s a former Olympic 100 m and bobsleigh (bobsled to us Yanks) athlete, and a longtime reader of the […]

Dear Mark: Kid Skipping Breakfast, Rinsing Meat, Glutamate, and the Snooze Button

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering four reader questions. First we have a question about an inadvertently fasting 11 year-old girl whose mom is concerned. Should she force the issue and convince her to eat breakfast, or let her do her thing? Second, what’s the real story behind rinsing raw meat? Does it […]

6 Foreign Health Concepts from Around the Globe

Maybe it was running across the word Kummerspeck (literally translated from German as “grief bacon,” meaning weight put on through emotional eating). A strange term if there ever was one… The fact is, I’ve always been fascinated by how languages can reflect particular feelings or phenomena most of us would never think to put a […]

Why Is Regaining Weight So Common?

It’s an age-old story. A person has a huge amount of weight to lose and gets rid of most of it through a combination of diet, exercise, and lifestyle modification. And they feel fantastic. They’ve got energy for days, their skin glows, they exude newfound confidence, and they experience other small miracles. Many of you […]

Luckily, in this quick and easy (and dairy-free) version of Rogan Josh, “slow” only means an hour, so you won’t be tortured by the mouth-watering aroma for […]
