SHR # 1170 :: Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us About Sex, Diet And How We Live PLUS CrossFit Warriors ::

Guest: Marlene Zuk - Cheryl Brost - Matt Chan

Zuk is the author of a critically important book that looks at the science behind the love affair many are having with the Paleo movement. Her research is fantastic and accurate. This book begs the reader to abandon the rhetoric and apply critical thinking to things like how fast we can adapt to changes in our environment, why some things take longer than others to trigger the evolutionary process and much more. This is a must-hear interview. PLUS Chan and Brost have made it to the World CrossFit Games numerous times and are every bit the caliber of athlete that any Olympic athlete is. What fuels their passion, how they got introduced to CrosFit and where they are now are all covered.

Carl, re:Matt Lalonde,

I don't think Matt said we aren't still evolving but that the examples she used were weak. Since all mammals are born with the ability to produce lactase the genetic mutation needed to keep producing lactase isn't as great as the mutation needed to start producing enzymes that would give us the ability to digest cellulose or proline righ proteins. ( my examples).
I think John Durant had the best comment about this book." It should not have been a book in 2013, it should have been a blog post in 2010"Although I agree she makes alot of good points, she is using the popularity of "Paleo" in the title to sell her book. You don't read Paleo blogs or listen to paleo podcasts but if you did you would know that most of the leaders of the Paleo movement have been saying the same thing for the last few years. They stress using the science of nutrient density, problematic proteins, inflammation and immune response rather than using the caveman theory.

Oops one more thing - Chris Kresser's podcast is from 3/27/13. I salute Zuk for stirring the pot and bringing more attention to the paleo way of eating. What's the alternate, just go ahead and stay sick, get sick or continue to degrade this beautiful divine machinery we have been given?

Check out Chris Kressers podcast addressing the three main points in Paleofantasy, even agreeing with much of those points but also presenting why that doesn't change how that way of eating is still the most optimal human diet based on nutrient density, bioavailability of nutrients and exclusion of problem foods, compounds and chemicals.

Quoting Russell:
Carl,
Don't be so easily fooled. Yes Zuk does make some good points but if you listen to Matt Lalonde - Harvard PhD on the fat burning man show recently he destroys her theory of change as being very weak with very poor examples.

Cheers

So let me get this straight.. Matt Lalonde (who has been a guest and I have a lot of respect for) says that Marlene Zuk's theory on change (meaning that we are still evolving and rapid evolution occurs) is weak?
