  • Bulletproof Your Body and Mind

    11/10/2021 Duración: 15min

    I am 69 years old.  I mention this because it explains where I am at, and I want to discuss how priorities change over the years.  Not completely, but what is most important to you at age 20 or so is not the same as what you value most at age 40, 50, 60, or even (gulp) 70!Some things do stay the same, at least if you have chosen your priorities wisely.  Health and fitness were always important to me, although organized sports never were.  I was into cross country and track in high school, and music was also important.  I was a skinny kid, and so weight lifting, and then body building became important in my college days.  Good nutrition became paramount then, since you can’t build up from bad food.  I loved how good I felt!I was never motivated by money, for good or ill.  I don’t say it’s good or bad, but for me money just wasn’t ‘it’.  Not my raison detre, or reason for being.  I loved reading and literature, philosophy, music and only desired to earn money by honest physical labor.  Most of my peers back in

  • Knees Over Toes Guy Inspires Workout Add-Ons

    20/09/2021 Duración: 15min

    Ben Patrick, the Knees Over Toes Guy is a force to be reckoned with!  I have found, lo over these many years of seeking and discovering fitness and health, that certain pivotal figures tend to pop up as you go.  Frank Zane, body builder of the 60’s and 70’s along with Arnold Swarzzenegger inspired me early on.  Loren Cordain of early paleo, then Robb Wolf helped to guide me after that, along with others, into a focus on true health and nutrition.  Chris Kresser  is always a guiding light of health, and Mark Sisson has some points of light he has pointed out over the years.  And John Peterson was a revelation in terms of exercise, although he is now retired from the scene somewhere…But young Ben Patrick comes along, and appears to have done everything wrong in his youth, trying to play basketball only to ruin his knees and athletic aspirations young, by following conventional medical advice advocating always keeping your knees over your toes when exercising!  This, as has been said

  • Sports are not Exercise!

    19/08/2021 Duración: 13min

    I kind of hate to rain on anyone’s parade, particularly those who believe in the benefits of exercise!  But the thing it this: exercise is something that improves one’s body, something that makes you better physically.  Makes you stronger, more flexible, and/or more enduring.  That is the whole point of it!But we have been misled about this most important point- nowadays, any slightly demanding activity is put down as exercise.  Slowly jogging, or walking.  (Not exercise, not really- too undemanding and short of stimulating a physical improvement of any sort.)  And of course, things like: TennisBowling FootballSoccerDancingSwimmingBicyclingOlympic weight liftingDarts….I hope you get it by now.  Sports are recreation, not exercise per se.  Although some activities (I.e. Sports) are physically demanding, some more than others, they do not qualify as true exercise.  Exercise is a means of attaining greater physical health and ability.  Lifting weights, or using body weight resistance to improve muscular strength

  • Make Your LIFE Your Vacation podcast

    20/07/2021 Duración: 12min

    So very many people (most probably) look at their periodic vacations as being the  most valued part of their life.  The ONE thing that they focus on, and that is the most valuable part of their lives!They travel overseas, they go to white sand beaches and stay in fancy hotels and dine in amazing restaurants.  They may even do a little ‘Zumba’ or other hotel-sanctioned quasi-fitness activities to give the illusion of becoming healthy…Here is what I believe we should do instead:Strive to build a life that is sustainable, and something that you can do happily for the rest of your life.  “Simplify, simplify…” as Henry Thoreau said.  True contentment and happiness does not mean transitory situations that will impress your vapid friends on Facebook and cost lots of money and time.  Really think it through, and figure out what will really make you content and happy, without being concerned about the opinions of others.Long term, if we are looking back at our lives, what would pretty much ALL of us want to see as acc

  • Forget Cardio!

    21/06/2021 Duración: 11min

    http://www.paleojay.comThe truth is definitely in: the whole fiasco of Ken Cooper’s Aerobics mania is dead.  Along with the high fat diet is the worst,  and the even earlier notion of  ‘better living through chemistry’ which promoted the noxious idea that drugs could not only prolong our lives, but improve them.Despite Elvis and all the other following celebrities who were convinced that those ‘god-like’ prescription drugs could only make their lives better- after all, hadn’t science invented all of technology like cars and airplanes and tv- shouldn’t our biology also be improved upon by science and technology?Well, no.  As the whole Paleo Diet and lifestyle revolution showed us, basically we are unchanged since our paleolithic past, biologically.  Evolution is very, very slow, just as it is unforgiving of bad missteps.  (We are currently devolving intellectually in the Western world, sadly, because of bad ideas about immigration and multiculturalism, that are lowering our average IQ and diluting the obvious

  • Stretching, Virtual Resistance- and Then Strength! podcast

    24/05/2021 Duración: 12min

    I try to keep you all updated as to what I learn along this paleo journey.  Sometimes, as in anything increased experience and research results in slight changes on the path.  This doesn’t mean the path itself is invalid; it simply means that constant attention reveals small changes may be desirable.  For instance, now in the grocery checkout aisles (where at LAST I am no longer required to wear a stupid, ineffective mask!) I see the dumb women’s magazines touting ‘KETO DIET’!  instead of  Paleo, or Atkins, or Low Fat, or Vegan  Run Wild diets.  I think Paleo was rejected as a term, since most women think of themselves as Progressives.  But whatever: the term makes the most descriptive sense for the proper diet of HUMANS!A ketogenic diet is fine, with NO carbs and LOTS of fat, and ample protein.  But it is so extreme, it is clinical, really.  If I was diabetic, or had epilepsy, I would certainly go that route!  But for most of us?  Nope.  Paleo, or a total Carnivore diet fills the bill the best.  Including or

  • Buy Bitcoin or DIE!

    03/05/2021 Duración: 12min

    Now, you know I am using a bit of hyperbole here, right?  You won’t necessarily die- but you will definitely regret not doing so, and I mean really, really, really regret it!Remember prices in the 1950’s or 60’s, when gasoline was 19 cents or so, and candy bars were a nickel?  And prices of everything else were similarly minuscule compared to today?  If you don’t actually remember it, like I do, you can certainly look it up, or talk to someone who does.  Or even remember prices from 10 or 20 years ago.  That is inflation, and it is both insidious, and ruinous.We have all been forced to invest aggressively our whole adult lives, at least those of us who are paying attention, and have an IQ above 85 or so.  Ironically, most of us in Western civilization are not really all that interested in investing, in studying the stock market constantly and spending our lives in such a manner.  In fact, very few are- most of us have families, and interests apart from growing and maintaining wealth, and wish that we didn’t h

  • Perilous Times in the West on Paleojay’s Smoothie Cafe

    15/04/2021 Duración: 09min

    It’s kind of sad to reach the autumn of your years, only to realize that the civilization you were reared in- Western Civilization- the most vital and successful civilization of all time, is foundering!  Now, I don’t mean that it is failing, but it is in crisis.  Just as ancient Greece, and then ancient Rome, which picked up the mantle only to founder in its turn; the incredible vitality and liberating truth of this ultimate of all civilizations is in trouble.  And, just like those earlier incarnations, upon which our own civilization is built today, it is being destroyed not from without, not at all.  It is being destroyed from within, by self-deluded traitors who actually see themselves as wonderful liberators of white supremacy, rather than as the manipulated, entitled losers that are being used to destroy everything their ancestors have laboriously built that they truly are!Now, only entitled losers could be so misled as to believe that to give away, to erase their own culture is a good thing!  It’s not. 

  • EZ Paleo

    If you’ve been following the paleo diet and lifestyle for any length of time, you know that there are certain things that are taken as irrefutable gospel:Never eat grains because of gluten and gliaden, also too much (bad- fake) salt and all of the preservatives and glycogen that is sprayed on conventional wheat and other grains.Never eat beans which are legumes.Go really really low carb!Eat more vegetables than anything else, with a little fruit.Now, I’m here to say that, over time, most folks, with experimentation, determine that some of these caveats can be sidestepped, and a degree of normalcy can enter your diet,  while still maintaining your health.  Sour dough bread- real sour dough bread, can be a lifesaver here!  Since it is leavened by a real sour dough culture, and is ideally also made up from ancient, non-hybridized and unsprayed heritage grains- it is far, far lower in gluten and gliadin, and so will not make your intestine permeable.There are a few bakeries around here that make such loaves; my f

  • Be a Lord of the Rings

    In these strange times, when so much seems to be falling apart and in endless flux, it is time to focus on the self.  Even when there is little you can accomplish in the realm of politics, including the collapse of the cities and schools, law and order and endless reckless spending- you can work on your own health, wellness, and fitness!Enter the rings.  Gymnastic rings that is!  Up until a few years ago, the notion of using rings seemed far-fetched:  in my youth, such tools were never available.  No one back then even knew how to use them, but when you saw things like the Olympics, these amazing god-like athletes could be seen (most from European countries) doing incredible feats of crazy strength and control.They were fun to watch, but like tight rope walking and trapeze acts, nothing that one aspired to.  But, the incredibly lean, defined physiques of those gymnasts were sure to catch you eye - how to look and perform like that?!  It seemed impossible, what they did, and yet there they were, doing it.I’m h

  • Bitcoin is Paleo Tribal Money on PaleoJay's Smoothie Cafe

    12/02/2021 Duración: 14min

    In returning to an approximation of the paleolithic world in modern times, of course the first thing is to eat and otherwise conduct ourselves in accordance with our evolutionary heritage.  Move naturally, and often to build our bodies as did our ancestors for millennia, sleep according to our circadian rhythms, and live in a rural, natural environment, as unaffected by big cities and big government as possible.  But now, there is another step you can take, my paleo fellow tribesperson: buy crypto currencies!  These are currencies that run counter to fiat, or national currencies, like the U.S. Dollar.  You probably only have heard of one- Bitcoin.There are many others, but they all are similar, and you only need to know a few things.  (They are complex, but just because you don’t understand computers doesn’t mean you can’t use one!)Crypto refers to all modern private currencies, of which Bitcoin was the first and is the most prominent.  It is mathematically engineered to be impossible to manipulate, like gove

  • Be a Good Paleo Tribal Member- Not a Useful Idiot Globalist Democrat

    27/01/2021 Duración: 13min

    We are living in strange times, where someone who is for free speech, and for the enhancement of their own tribe and group, and for things like truth and justice is painted as evil!  A white supremacist if you desire crime enforcement, a hater if you support property rights, and a liar if you support the objective truth.  This is what we have come to in the United States, and really in the western world.Trump, whether you liked him or not, was an unwavering force for good, and for righteousness for all.  A good tribal leader!  Not perfect (no one is), but a tireless protector of timeless Western values.  And remember: western values are civilization nowadays, since civilization itself is now Western Civilization!So, it is important, now that we have the opposite of Trump in power, that we all come together as a Western Tribe to restore the values and foundations of our own civilization that we have inherited- that was built for us, their descendants, by our ancestors.  Our president, who is obviously mentally

  • Be the ideal YOU!

    04/01/2021 Duración: 16min

    I’ve kind of racked my paleolithic brain to come up with a theme for the new decade, and have decided that if I, and you all live up to our potential- fully, not kind of just sluffing along half-heartedly- we will save not only ourselves and our families, but all of western civilization!So here is what you do:  You start exercising, every single day!  Every MORNING- this is important! The form of exercise should be done at home, where you have complete control, and can be outside or in, depending on the weather.  It should be mainly strength training focussed, but with a large portion devoted to stretching, on the floor.  Perfectly paleo exercise, the name of my book and ebook are ideal in utilizing self resistance, isometrics, and calisthenics.  Get some perfect pushup devices to use, but also be sure to get some gymnastic rings!  A set of these rings will do more for your fitness than anything else, ever- and will literally transform your physique and your entire physical prese

  • Your Tribe is More Important than YOU!

    25/11/2020 Duración: 10min

    We live in a world where we all aspire to be #1!  The best in our category: our line of work, best looking, most successful, the most wonderful person that ever lived.  Popular and sought after!  That’s what matters!I’m here to tell you that no, that is not a worthy goal.  None of it is, not at all.  We are here to support and provide for our tribe, meaning our family, neighborhood, friends and church.  We, personally, are just a cog, a part of what makes us what and who we are.  Small potatoes…In traditional societies, that is hunter gatherer, paleolithic or early neolithic agricultural tribes and villages, there are only a few things that really matter.  That we are an asset to our communities is the most important, by far.  Think of humans as being like a pack animal, since we really are that- a tribal animal!  We are not ‘solo animals’, in fact very few animals are!  Even sharks hunt in packs, or ‘schools’.  The individual is not that important; cooperation in hunting is key.  Cats are an exception, as ar

  • The Key to Health, Wellness, and Fitness on PJSC

    12/11/2020 Duración: 10min

    It’s really rather simple, becoming or staying fit and healthy: consistency!  Not herculean efforts that leave you drained done sporadically, or plugging away, jogging and walking for endless distances.  Neither is natural, or desirable.The best strategy to life, as well as strength, health, and fitness is to just do things daily, or nearly so.  A simple list will do, really.Go to bed early.  Sleep 8 hours, or moreExercise first thing!  In front of the TV is best, stimulating your mind along with your body.  Virtual exercise, generating resistance within your own muscles as you move each limb is the foundation (see Perfectly Paleo Exercise).  These are also called Tiger Moves, since it is similar to how cats exercise themselves.  Then stretch a lot, on the floor- come up with a routine than covers your whole body- it should feel great, not painful at all, and energize rather than deplete you.  Do targeted strength work two times per week.  Pushups, pull-ups, dips, ring work, squats, kettlebell swings, etc.  T

  • It's Not Racism- It's IQ

    02/11/2020 Duración: 08min

    Lately in the United States, and throughout the western world, the primary problem being focussed on is white racism.  This malady we supposedly possess en masse, even if we deny it or don’t know it, explains everything!  It tells us that all of the massive dysfunction, wildly out-of-proportion crime and violence, substandard performance in school, careers, and simply the inability to care for both themselves and their families and neighborhoods is explainable by one factor and one factor only- White Racism!  Name your flavor: systemic, unconscious, universal; whatever you call it, it is all the fault of white people (Asians are also often implicated in this grand scheme nowadays), and none of it at all is the fault of black people of African descent at all.But what if there is another, obvious, and far simpler explanation?  One that is well documented for over a century?  The one that says the IQ, or the average intelligence of blacks is lower than that of either whites, or especially Asians?  And quite a bi

  • Oxalates and Migrants: a Metaphor on PJSC podcast

    18/10/2020 Duración: 12min

    As illegal, unwanted migrants swarm across our borders, we can compare what happens to our country and civilization with what happens within our own bodies by bad interlopers.  Just as our country has been being invaded for decades by demographically dissimilar to us peoples, destroying and overcrowding our systems of schooling, policing, health care, housing, and every other facet of our political system- so too has your body been invaded for many years by a bad chemical chiefly produced by plants- oxalates!  We have been brainwashed into thinking that, like Popeye- “We’re strong to the finish if we eats our spinach!”  Unfortunately, this is not true, not true at all!  Spinach has been pointed out of ages as being loaded with iron, numerous vitamins like vitamin A and K, and is low carb and loaded with fiber and Vitamin C!  What’s not to like?Well, plenty!  Almost all of the nutrients found in spinach (and in all vegetation, actually) are not bioavailable to us.  They are ‘frozen’ as it were, unassimilable b

  • The Carnivore Diet

    01/10/2020 Duración: 12min

    I just finished reading Paul Saladino’s well researched book The Carnivore Code.  This is not an ‘easy read’ type of book, and that is just as well, since he goes into great detail on all of the why’s and wherefores of following the ultimate no carb diet.   The reading is not easy or simple, since it is so deeply researched and explained, which is a strong plus for serious students of diet and nutrition.The author is very convincing in his arguments, and is also well spoken, as I have also watched many of his YouTube videos and am a (permanent) subscriber to his podcast.  Even his podcasts and videos are long, and go into great depths.  Luckily, he is an entertaining and engaging character, and quite likeable.  Look him up- I’m sure you will be both entertained and instructed, as I was.What I find both the most compelling and also the most difficult part of his book to incorporate is not his recommendation to cut out most vegetables, especially those with high oxalates (like spinach, kelp, and other leafy gre

  • Big Cities are Fatally Flawed on PaleoJays Smoothie Cafe

    09/09/2020 Duración: 13min

    We now live in a time when all of our major cities are failing. We panic, wondering what is now different: why, oh why are New York city, Chicago, Detroit of course all failing, all such abhorrent places of crime, violence and mayhem? All bankrupt, and all being run by horrible governments that are hastening their decline??But we forget, all of us forget our own Western history- it has ever been thus. Indeed, part of our decline is caused by us no longer teaching and learning our own history…And so it is that our youth no longer have any inkling of what has come before, and instead are directed to study the minutia of alien cultures, inconsequential inferior cultures, that have nothing to do with us at all. For, after all, it is the case that Western Culture and Civilization is now the Civilization and Culture of the world. All of our history has culminated in that single fact.And so- let’s focus our attention on the so-called Eternal City- ROME. For over 1,000 years Rome lasted, starting as a small city of l

  • Religion is in our DNA podcast

    26/08/2020 Duración: 09min

    It’s strange: as paleo people, we believe that our diet evolved along with us, making us what we are.  For instance, there has never, ever, been a vegetarian or vegan tribe or culture. Humans have always eaten animal products, some more than others, but ALL rely on the amazing nutrition in animal derived foods.  Eating animals and products taken from animals made us what we are- you can’t take animals out of our evolution and arrive at modern humans.This is widely accepted amongst those who believe in an ancestral diet and lifestyle.  But, though most of us see ourselves as grounded in science in our beliefs, many of us at the same time deny the truth, or meaning of religion in our lives!  We denigrate the idea of a god, or of any universal laws outside of man’s own laws.  Many believe that science has displaced the idea of God, gods, or even religion itself.But just because there has never been a culture that didn’t eat animals- there has never been a culture without religion.  Never.  Even the Neanderthals
