1. You came up fist in my search. Very cool. I am glad to have someone else to geek out on this stuff with.

    I have noticed that my willpower breaks down with Alcohol. Ended up having a little ice cream and desert tonight. Have not done that in a long time. No worries as long as the cheating does not become the norm.


  2. What about the super high sodium content of smoked salmon? Isn’t that a pretty big problem?

    • It hasn’t proven to be a problem for me. But some people may need to watch sodium content. I am a bit of a contrarian in dietary matters; saturated fats, sodium, cholesterol, I don’t worry too much about them.

      Orthodox “paleo” diets don’t include added sodium, and so, smoked and cured meats are excluded. That wasn’t something I knew about when I originally posted this note.

      One thing I am curious about though, is that I saw a lecture by Loren Cordain in which he claimed that high sodium has been implicated in insomnia, which IS a problem for me. He suggests eliminating added salt and seeing if that doesn’t address sleep issues; it’s not something I am ready to try yet.

Let me know what you think...
