Newbies, start here!

Other topics of interest are health, fitness and lifestyle issues as seen from an evolutionary perspective.

Beginners, PLEASE READ THE R/PALEO FAQ BEFORE POSTING QUESTIONS


POSTING GUIDELINES

If you're posting a link to your own blog/site, you must do so as a self/text post, and include the [Blogspam] tag in the title.

Please tag your post title with one of the following tags:

  • [Blogspam] (mandatory when posting content you've been involved with making. Blogs, youtube channels, etc.)
  • [Article]
  • [Recipe]
  • [Research] (links to scientific articles)
  • [Discussion] (general discussion/questions)
  • [Question] (if you've got a specific question or need help with something)
  • [Food Pic]
  • [Progress Pic]
  • [Paleo Junk Food]
  • [Other]

If you are posting a picture of a meal you have made, take the time to include the recipe with us! It saves everyone having to ask for it every time.

Do not act like your One True Paleo™ is the be-all, end-all and is perfect for for every human on Earth. You should really not use the words "you need" here, unless they're followed by something like "to talk to your doctor". It's very unlikely that you know what the person you're replying to needs, and pretending otherwise can be confusing for people new to this world.


Please report:

Spam, harassment, people generally being dicks (including people acting like their Paleo™ is "correct" and others are wrong), posts that aren't relevant to paleo/primal. That sort of thing.

Please don't report:

Posts you disagree with, posts you don't like, posts that don't fit your version of paleo or are

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING is don't be afraid to experiment. If something is working well for you, don't worry if it isn't "strict paleo," because there's no such thing. Paleo is more of a framework than a set of rules.

If you're posting something kinda gross (Some of us do talk about poop from time to time), feel free to TMI tag it. It'll end up like this: gross thing. Code example below.
