When I first heard that some crazy people were going to start a print magazine about Paleo I just, well, I just… Let’s put it that way.

Aren’t we in the Internet age, with content increasingly going to digital form and things in print increasingly the way of the dinosaur? That’s what I assumed, anyway. But then at the Ancestral Health Symposium last month, the publishers approached me and handed me a nice glossy edition of the magazine, asking if I might have a look.

I did, and while I like the convenience of the digital age and in particular, having as many magazines or books as you want right at your fingertips via iPad or a similar device, there’s really something about flipping pages, the glossy look and feel, the ability to have the latest and even back issues sitting on your bureau or coffee table and of course, the ease at which you can pass them off to friends and family when you’re done with them. Or, you can leave an issue in your doctor or dentist’s office on one of those very rare visits.

Another advantage is that these will be showing up on newsstands in various places, so people will be introduced to paleo via a completely new route.

Call me sold. I’ve subscribed myself and I’d encourage you to do so if you don’t win yours for free. Yes, I’ve arranged with the publishers to give away a free one-year subscription and I’ll do so by random drawing from the list of commenters.

Here are the rulz:

  1. Enter as many times as you like. Each comment is a separate entry.
  2. To enter once, just post a comment that says “enter me,” or something like that. Saying, “and please let me win” is entirely optional.
  3. To enter as many times as you like, open up a topic of your choosing on anything related to Paleo/Primal and make it interesting enough that a discussion gets going and you and others end up posting multiple comments. Alternatively, participate in a discussion topic or more that others have initiated. The more you contribute, the greater your chance to win, and you may learn and teach in the whole process.
  4. Be fair and mature about it. That means, enter once and be done with it or, make your multiple comments substantive.
  5. I reserve the right to delete comments (entries) that I subjectively deem as not in keeping with rule #4.

I will close comments in about 48 hours, which is around noon, PDT, Monday, September 26.

Update: Comments are now closed, with a total of 182 entries. I will announce the winner soon. …Here we go:

    I’d love to see some discussion of noise and light pollution in modern urban America, how it contrasts with what we are adapted to from an evolutionary perspective, and the resulting health problems…



    • Kristin on September 24, 2011 at 13:47

      I find noise pollution particularly stressful to live with. We have neighbors who not only play their CDs really loud late in the evening, but also have a car whose alarm goes off all the time. Gah. I can feel my cortisol rising even thinking about it. One of the reasons I love going off into the mountains is that you at least have a chance of getting away from human-made noise, although all too often even deep in the wilderness you’ll still hear planes or distant cars.



      • Chandra on September 24, 2011 at 14:17

        I have neighbors who sit on their porch in a large group and talk REALLY loud and laugh really loud (so loud you can hear it through the windows and walls of our house which is across the street) all hours of the night. We also have neighbors who let their dogs bark all night long. I don’t know how it doesn’t bother them. It sure drives us crazy. It makes me tense just thinking about it. I keep hoping the kids will graduate soon and go off into the world but I think they are such losers it isn’t going to happen. I guess we are just going to have to live with it until we can sell and move out like everyone else with sense in our neighborhood. 🙁



      • Kristin on September 24, 2011 at 18:24

        I can’t help feeling like we are just not meant to live crammed into these little neighborhoods with postage-stamp lots and other houses crowded all around. My husband doesn’t seem to have a problem with it, though. Maybe it’s just that I was raised in the country with lots of elbow room, while he’s from the suburbs.



    • marcia on September 24, 2011 at 16:33

      I live in a tourist/sports/night-life neighborhood in Seattle; lights and noise galore. I’ve learned to tolerate it (mostly), but I hope it’s not doing me any harm. It’s too good a location to give up and I have a great view (water, sunset over mountains) and it’s cheap too.

      The things I can’t get used to are car/engine noise. Not the cars driving around. No it’s the car alarms, motorcycle groups/clubs/gangs revving it up, and fucking booming bass boom-box cars! You can’t imagine the destructive/painful punishment I imagine serving on the drivers (I hope they like life on Pluto). THAT CAN’T BE GOOD FOR ME! I need to do some cortisol research. Maybe it is time to move.



    • Gina on September 24, 2011 at 19:53

      I’ve always been sensitive to noisiness – part of the reason I’m childless by choice – with several younger sibs I just wanted more quiet in my life. I feel as I get older noise bothers me more, so that I’m planning to retire to a more peaceful area. My suburb is pretty quiet but not quiet enough for me ideally.



      • Cecilia on September 25, 2011 at 05:35

        I totally agree about the noisy neighbors. At least you have laughing. I had fighting and hitting. Had to call the police a couple times. I moved before they stopped. These days I have noise canceling headphones. Bliss!!!!



    • Preston on September 25, 2011 at 07:42

      I think you’re on to something. I sleep best when my bedroom is pitch black. I even cover up the alarm clocks LEDs. When I’m at somebody else’s house or at a hotel, I can never get the room dark enough and I don’t sleep well.

      Also, I never sleep well during the full moon. Even in my pitch black bedroom.



    • Geoff on September 25, 2011 at 15:49

      Thanks. Your post is paleo in its essence – attacking what we doing (or having done to us) these days that sets us apart from our evolutionary heritage.

  13. Kit Perkins on September 24, 2011 at 13:21

    In the name of initiating discussion – What does everyone think about the Food Reward Hypothesis of Obesity (as intro’d to the paleosphere by Stephan)? Maybe no one else is interested, but I find it very compelling.



    • Kristin on September 24, 2011 at 18:29

      Based on my own experiences, I think there’s really something to it. Basically I interpret it to mean that some foods, because of the ways they interact with our neurochemistry, cause us to seek them out again and again and eat them in large amounts, making us fat. This is different from foods just tasting good, which I think is where some of the controversy stems from. A lot of people seem to think that food reward = food tasting good, but it’s more than that. For example, I can eat a dinner of meat and veggies and think, Yum! That was really great! But I stop when I’m full and don’t feel an urge to keep eating beyond the point of fullness. But if I eat something like, say, Thai noodles, I think, Yum! This is great! and I keep eating and eating and eating long past the point of fullness. I think that means that the noodles have a combination of salty/sweet/fatty flavors and starchiness that trips switches in my brain leading to overeating, whereas a Paleo meal does not trip those switches.



    • Kristin on September 24, 2011 at 18:36

      I should say, though, that I don’t think food reward is the whole story at all. There are many other factors that seem to contribute to obesity. But definitely food reward is one of them.



    • Gina on September 24, 2011 at 19:48

      I find Stephan’s assertions to be based on shaky “facts” so I don’t lend any credence to his hypothesis. I believe that we crave foods and over-indulge simply because we are not getting enough nutrition and real satiation from the modern common diet, and that culturally it has become acceptable to eat all the time.



      • Kristin on September 25, 2011 at 06:25

        I agree that a lot of people are walking around in a state of subclinical malnutrition. But if that’s the main cause of overeating, why do most people crave food that is nutritionally poor? You would think that we would all start craving meat and veggies, assuming they are available which in most cases they are. But instead, people want to eat the junk instead of the food they could choose that is much more nutrient-dense. So I don’t think overeating is mainly caused by our bodies trying to make up for micronutrient deficiencies–although I’d be willing to believe that may be a factor, just not a “dominant” one.

        I’m in agreement with you about the cultural acceptability of eating all the time, though. I’m trying to teach my daughter NOT to eat all the time, but it’s hard when we go to playdates and other parents are letting their kids graze nonstop. I would rather have my daughter eat when she’s genuinely hungry and have significant periods of time where she’s not eating and not thinking about food.

    has everyone here found it better to be strict paleo? or do you have your own rules on what you allow yourself to eat and not eat?



    • Mara on September 24, 2011 at 16:00

      I have been Paleo since the end of April 2011…i go by the guideline, “don’t cheat with wheat “. I don’t do regular cheat days…first “diet” in my life where i am never hungry and do not crave carbs, salt or sugar. I occasionally cheat with minimal dairy a little cheese, a little cream in the coffee. I try my best to do organic/grassfed whole fat when i do eat dairy…one time at work i ate the meat off of a subway club and was sick to my stomach for a day and a half although the day i caved and ate the pepproni and cheese from a slice of pizza i was fine! Of course with coconut milk ice cream and sweet potato chips and home made paleo baked goods who needs to cheat ?



    • Kristin on September 24, 2011 at 18:34

      I’m not able to be too strict at the moment, but I do not eat wheat in any form or dairy. I have some food intolerances, though, so that’s additional motivation for avoiding those things. I also do not eat sweets or dessert in any form, not so much because it’s not Paleo but because I have learned that I am incapable of eating those things in moderation. So I guess I have some things where I’m super-strict and other things where I see more wiggle room.



    • Geoff on September 25, 2011 at 15:52

      I try to be strict but alcohol bedevils me still. Grains, legumes, and dairy I don’t miss. But a life in which I didn’t share red wine with my wine would be no fun,



  35. Melanie on September 24, 2011 at 14:37

    do you allow yourself cheat days? if so, how many and how often? I’ve found that it’s better I don’t give myself any cheat days or I’ll just lose my self-discipline and start eating whatever I want again.



    • Cassandra on September 24, 2011 at 17:18

      I don’t allow myself cheat days. For me, this is a lifestyle change and one that is going to help me prolong my life & live it to the fullest. I’m with you when I did eat go off, I would crave that stuff. Plus, the food I’m getting and the quality is better than anything I could buy in a restaurant or grocery store. I am loading up on different kinds of squash right now for the winter from local farmers & market. We also just bought a freezer so we can feed the meat we need for the winter. We have a local grass-fed bison/beef store that has just opened up. I’m trying to stay as local as I can, which has helped with my allergies. This is the first year I haven’t had sinus issues or a cold.



    • Gina on September 24, 2011 at 19:30

      At 51 I can’t really afford cheat days. I’m trying to get rid of this dang pouch – I am not a kangaroo dammit!



      • Cassandra on September 24, 2011 at 19:44

        I wish you could tell my parents that. My parents are in their early 50s. My dad being a diabetic type 2, caused by other forms of bad health and the results of other medicines, will call me up to tell me how delicious his ice cream sandwich is. My parents think I’m “extreme” & it’s just a phrase, this “paleo diet.” Yet, my mom has osteoporosis & has already had breast cancer. My dad has abused his livers & organs, but depends on that shot of insulin. My brother is heading down the same path. I keep telling them that I don’t crave that stuff anymore, but they tell me as if I’m missing out on something, yet, I feel the same about them.



      • Gina on September 24, 2011 at 19:58

        It’s so sad thay we just can’t cut through all the crap that people have been fed and take as the WORD their whole lives. I totally hear you. I have friends with osteoporosis, arthritis, cancer, diabetes etc. And anyone over 45 has been handed statins like they are candy. My own mom smoked for over 60 years. She now has terrible GERD and her favorite things to eat are pastries. She doesn’t understand what I’m doing at all. So I just have to watch and wait for the inevitable shit to hit the fan.



      • Cassandra on September 24, 2011 at 21:06

        Isn’t that about right? I hope to lead in example & when people ask, I tell them. Luckily, my boyfriend and I started this together & we’re having great results. I’m sorry to hear about your mom. It’s hard to see the ones we love eat themselves to death. I’ve slowly been heading the paleo route for while, but didn’t know the terminology or how strict I needed to be w/ it. Now that we’ve spent more re-educating ourselves, it’s been worth it.

        My dad, being a diabetic, loves all bread, sugars, snacks, and chocolate. He keeps candy as a way to help his low blood sugar. He also enjoys “sugar-less” hard candies. I could go on & on, but you understand.

        I’m also concerned about when we will have the freedom of health and not this notion of “free health care.” Does anyone else see this alarming that our society wants to be dependent on the government handouts?



      • Mara on September 25, 2011 at 09:05

        Cassandra,
        it would be so cool if you could talk your parents into trying paleo for even a week. i am 53 and an adult onset type one diabetic…in 3 months my A1c went down a whole point…this is after 10 years of struggling with it…when i eat anything sweet i do agave or coconut sugar. i did no sweets the first month… i must process the agave differently than sugar…i have paleo brownies in my freezer and can eat one when before there wouldnt be any left to freeze… after reading Robb Wolfe’s book and Cordain’s book and a ton of other food stuff i can’t imagine ever eating SAD again.



      • Cassandra on September 25, 2011 at 15:54

        Mara,

        I agree. It would be awesome if I could convinced them to try it a week, but they don’t like hearing anything about it. Their tone changes and they act like kids. “Cassie, you do what you want, we’ll do what we want” type of attitude. Trust me, I’m not giving up, I just have to keep showing them results & introducing new information, even when they don’t want to hear it. I’m with you. I can’t eat SAD either.



      • Dan Linehan on September 26, 2011 at 03:07

        That’s a depressing story. I really don’t understand how people let themselves go like that.

        Maybe you should try writing them a heartfelt letter explaining how serious the situation really is? Might be a wake up call, or at least something to plant a seed that this is a real issue, not some lame joke about junk food.



      • Cassandra on September 26, 2011 at 09:35

        Unfortunately, I think it’s a story that happens more often than not. I’m not sad about it or let it bother me, I’ve grown and learned from all my parents mistake. I feel like they have had lots of wake up calls and close to death moments & that doesn’t work for them. I’m happy that I am young enough to reverse 25 years of bad habits, where I don’t see my parents living over the age of 60. You would think all the pills and doctor appts, the waste of money that is thrown into these businesses would be a sign, but it’s not. Again, I can’t change the world, just me & let others follow from my lead. 🙂

        Have you kept track of your measurements? Women lose inches more so than weight. Do you keep a food log? Are you eating enough calories so the body doesn’t hold fat cells? Have you adjusted your diet? Change exercise routine? I’m only curious because I haven’t doing this too long.

        Gawd that sounds cliche. 😉



    • Cassandra on September 24, 2011 at 19:35

      A paleo dating site? No, thanks. Being paleo, shouldn’t we be able to hunt out our own mates? 😉



      • Dan Linehan on September 24, 2011 at 20:30

        Where would you hunt out your mate though? At the local steakhouse?



      • Cassandra on September 24, 2011 at 20:50

        Haha, possibly. What about a nicely done user-friendly forum? Why dating? Is this something that interest you? Could it be a place where all paleo people could connect and not just ones looking for love?



  65. Bixy on September 24, 2011 at 17:22

    is this restricted to US residents? if not, enter me!



  66. Dan Linehan on September 24, 2011 at 17:23

    Richard, you’ve officially entered into Pharyngula territory with this thread. You are going to have like 1000 comments. 😉



  67. Dan Linehan on September 24, 2011 at 17:36

    Enter me sideways?



  68. Evan on September 24, 2011 at 17:52

    Enter me please. Thanks for the chance!



  69. marc on September 24, 2011 at 18:28

    Damn it !! just TODAY I told my girlfriend that I’m quitting ALL my magazine (6) subscriptions except one.
    Now, if i win, I’ll seem just as full of empty gestures AND just as full-of-shit as always. why does she have great timing to be right.
    thanks,
    Marc



    • Gina on September 24, 2011 at 19:24

      Girl power in action! Get used to it, LOL.



  70. Al on September 24, 2011 at 18:32

    Richard,

    No, I’ll pay for my own shit. Don’t enter me, but let me know where I can order.

    Here’s the thing about the written word that you hold in your hands: it feels better, but maybe I’m just old school. Moreover, the written word on a page in a magazine seems to hold more substance than the written word on a weblog or otherwise electronic source (of course, it doesn’t make it more truer (?)). But this may also be my age talking. The younger folks seem to do fine with electronic media.

    -Al



    • James M on September 24, 2011 at 23:58

      Richard included the subscription link in the post, but here it is again:

      I’m a subscriber already, and have been greatly impressed by the issue I have so far received. Can’t wait for the next one to show up in the mail box.



      • Al on September 25, 2011 at 17:55

        Thanks James.



  71. Myer on September 24, 2011 at 18:42

    I wanna win



  72. Matt on September 24, 2011 at 19:10

    Enter me even though I think print is dead too, but maybe I can pass around copies (after reading it myself) to get some converts.



    • Cassandra on September 24, 2011 at 19:16

      Especially for the generation that hasn’t caught up to the Information Era, where information is more accessible on the Internet. Also, like Al said, there is a connotation that information is more valid in print.



  73. Matt Brody on September 24, 2011 at 19:13

    Enter me please, thanks Richard.



  74. Remnant on September 24, 2011 at 19:14

    People:

    Did you read what Richard wrote? Start an interesting comment thread that elicits good discussion and continue to take part in it yourself. Discuss interesting ideas if you want to win. Don’t just say “enter me!!”

    I will follow up on my own advice later.



  75. Amy smith on September 24, 2011 at 19:14

    Would love to win!



  76. Gina on September 24, 2011 at 19:21

    I want! I want! I’ve loved magazines since I was a kid – big reader, that’s why I ended up indoors most of the time and wearing glasses at 7 years. Oh well. I get more outdoors time now that I’m all old and wise, heh.

    I try to cut all subscriptions once in awhile but I end up caving and getting them again. Mag subscriptions are cheap, and I like to have them. When I was 11 or 12 I would read Vogue and was exposed to Truman Capote, Joan Didion, Rex Reed, Diana Vreeland and so on. I believed that everyone in the big city lived fabulous lives and had nightly cocktail parties full of intelligent and beautiful people. Then I moved to Los Angeles at 20 wanting to be a fashion designer and thought WTF?! Huge let down and real life commenced.

    Now a suburbia dweller with husband amd dog, my subscriptions lately have been Sunset, Food & Wine, And Martha Stewart Living. I did break down and started getting Vogue again, though it has no meaning for me anymore, I gladly paid the buck or so an issue to see Karlie Kloss in editorial layouts. Best. Damn. Model. Ever. Love her!

    Hey, you know, for 9 months now I’ve been eating strictly paleo. Lost 10 lbs. fairly quickly, but can’t seem to lose any more. Definitely hit a plateau. Got rid of the gluten back in Feb., and feel significantly better as a result. I rock climb almost every day, religiously. I check to be sure I’m in ketosis every time I pee, and I am. But the weight is not coming off. Since starting paleo, cholesterol has come down and is now practically normal. Thyroid seems to be ok. (I tried thyroid meds, and they seem to do little, if anything, anyway.) I got a diabetic blood sugar meter, and noticed that it tends to be a little high (about 100 to 110) in the morning, even if I don’t eat. Started plotting my blood sugar vs. time, and noticed a cyclical pattern: for a few weeks, it hovers around normal (85 or so) then jumps up over 100 for a few weeks. Could that be the cause? A1c is 5.3%. Anyone else have this dilemma? Any advice?



  81. Nathan on September 24, 2011 at 21:04

    Dibs on this, by the way, guys.

    Oh, and enter me just for show.

    Please enter me as well. Does the deal also work for people living in Europe?

    So what do you guys think about nuts? That’s one of the Paleo things which I find hard to decide for myself what’s best to do. I don’t eat nuts on a daily basis but I do really like them and they are a great substitute for baking. But more and more people seem to think that it’s best to really limit your intake. Chris Kresser just wrote a new article about it. http://chriskresser.com/another-reason-you-shouldnt-go-nuts-on-nuts
    So how often do you eat nuts?



    • Cassandra on September 25, 2011 at 07:21

      Steffi – I don’ eat them, but my boyfriend does a few times a week. When he was eating a lot, he noticed he was having more problems with his blood sugar so he cut back his intake.



  87. Suzanne on September 25, 2011 at 03:12

    Really hope I win!

    Do any of you have significant others who don’t want to follow the paleo way of eating?

    It’s a challenge when my spouse fills the grocery cart with potato chips, soda, carrot cake & cupcakes. Having this magazine in the house might help eliminate his processed food purchases (and my snacking cuz that stuff is in the house!)

    How have you worked with your partner to adapt to paleo?



    • Kristin on September 25, 2011 at 06:34

      My husband is vegetarian, so yeah, it makes it hard sometimes. I try to do Paleo-style meals where I just give him some form of veg protein instead of the meat I’m getting in my meal. Luckily he does like to eat in a pretty healthy way, so at least he isn’t bringing a ton of junk into the house all the time. I would have a much harder time with that.



    • Geoff on September 25, 2011 at 15:57

      It’s a puzzle to be sure. My wife experienced great results on a “paleo intervention” but reverted to eating grains quite soon thereafter. Ultimately I think the key is leading by example rather than leading through words. If your loved ones see the impact of a paleo way of living on your life eventually they’ll come around.



  88. Alison on September 25, 2011 at 03:16

    Can i win even though i live in Australia? Because i would really like too. Cheers



  89. Kim on September 25, 2011 at 03:23

    Wow, had no clue something like this was in the works. Kudos to the organizers for their vision and drive. Can’t wait to check it out.

    Paleo Magazine is only stocked at one store in my entire state! Last time I was at this particular store, they didn’t have it on the stand. Maybe they sold out?

    Regardless, I’d love to win this. If not, a subscription is totally going on my Xmas list and I will probably just order the back issues from the website! Thanks for the giveaway!



  132. Terry on September 26, 2011 at 07:43

    Love the idea of leaving this in a Doctor’s office. If I ever find a decent doctor, I’ll personally buy him a subscription.
