Greetings astute traveller, this website now exists for historical reasons.

Much has been learned since 2006. I urge you to keep exploring the evolution of information through other websites.

I don't think we evolved from apes, we have evolved into the ape we still are; the Great Ape, the Hominidae, homo.

I finish work at 15:30-16:00 so I like a good session in late afternoon after work, then have my meal to replenish and build after training at about 17:30-18:00.

Advice Column / Re: Chewing gum/orange juice?
« on: August 23, 2013, 12:29:11 PM »
I do chew chewing gum. I feel like in not really ingesting too much into my body with just having one after a meal.

But rarely bother with fruit juices, you wouldn't eat orange after orange after orange but that's what drinking fresh orange juice is the equivalent of. There's a lot of sugar that's not really natural to ingest in one go in fruit juices if you drink them straight.

Sometimes as a treat I get some sparkling spring water and add it to 1/5 of a glass of fruit juice. A nice fizzy drink that dilutes the fruit juice and is not a can of coke.

Don't differentiate. Your brain is an organ just like your heart, kidneys and skin. None can really be healthy in isolation. If you have a healthy mind it is likely that's because your body is in a healthy state too. I find the fitter I am physically the more clearly I think, the more awake I feel and the more positive an outlook I have on life.

Good story. It's good to see and hear of people losing weight, it can be inspirational.

My inspiration to lose weight came upon reading of Geoff Heugill, the Aussie swimmer who was 138kg (a while after retiring from swimming) and trimmed down to 93kg and was to make a come-back. It wasn't specifically the Caveman Diet or a paleo diet but the line says "He ditched the take-aways and processed foods, focusing his diet on fresh fruits, vegetables and lean meats."

I stumbled upon the paleo/Caveman Diet by chance. Someone told me about a website where she'd been ordering nuts, seeds, fruit etc. from and they provided a meal plan. I'd thought throughout my life that I didn't like nuts. Maybe I tried them as a kid and thought they were dry and went through twenty-odd years never eating them. But I thought I'd give it a try - I liked them. Then I did a bit of research online into nuts and "paleolithic diet" kept cropping up. So I read into it and thought 'this is something I feel I'd like'.

I started in the Spring of last year, did well, but slowly drifted back to my old ways and put all the weight back on. Dunno how it happened to be honest, I was doing well.
I've been thinking about re-starting since after Christmas but haven't. I will keep popping into this thread for some inspiration, and also to the other threads for other Cavepeople's motivation. Think I'm going to start on Stage One next week.

Fitness & Exercise / Re: Walking (High Speed High Incline)
« on: June 01, 2013, 05:48:12 AM »
There's no right way to train (there are wrong ways to train, though). If you do 60minute incline walks you will burn fat, improve body shape, increase confidence, and fitness will increase slightly (it certainly will for walking). A lot of people don't like high intensity training, they'd rather have a gentler feel to training, so for them a 60min incl.walk is ideal.

Advice Column / Re: Breakfast

I am new to this diet and the meal plans look good, the only problem i have is im not really creative when it comes to breakfast, what items would you recommend? I usually eat eggs, i know the yolk (yellow part) contains fats, should this be avoided? Also any breakfast recommendations would be appreciated.

The are good sources of energy. Don't feel you need to avoid fat if you're trying to lose weight.

General Discussion / Man and Fire
« on: May 28, 2013, 12:23:13 PM »

Just read this^. It's not very detailed but drives my mind round the bend about wishing to be there when these things first happened. Imagine being the one first humanoid to get that first spark, great stuff!

Fire could be the single most important thing we ever found how to use, couldn't it? With fire we could cook food which would lead to fewer calories being used to break food down and thus, over generations, that saved energy could go into brain development and thinking! We could settle down 'round a fire and socialise. We could manipulate land by burning forested areas and creating clearings. We could hunt differently. We could protect ourselves more effectively.

What do you think their first hot meal was?

Website Info / Re: Suggestion Box
« on: February 14, 2013, 03:06:18 AM »
Hi everyone,

I'm new to the website and new to Paleo/Caveman (so new that I haven't even started on Stage One as yet). I'm very impressed with the website and the information on it. This seems like my sort of thing.


The grammar on the pages isn't spot on and I think decreases the overall quality or class of the website. They are only minor mistakes here and there but I think, if ironed out, changes to them would make the website even better than it already is.

Above it says not to go on too long in suggestion posts so if someone from Caveman Power would like to PM me, I would be happy to reply with the suggestions for change.

I really hope I don't sound like a boring and slightly smarmy so-and-so; especially with this being my first post (aaah don't hate me already ;) !) but I think it would be better for the website overall.
