Low Carb and Paleo Links
I Have Rules
For low carb and paleo links to be included on my personal list, they must be active sites (with posts in at least the last six months) and NOT anonymous. There are some prominent sites that, for one reason or another, do not list their author’s name and background. Perhaps they are afraid of recriminations from the low fat advocates, or they are prison inmates compiling a list of meat eaters to victimize when they get out. We simply don’t know, and so I don’t include them.
Low carb and paleo links are separated into six different categories:
- Medical Sites
- Researchers – Other Fields
- Personal Sites
- Recipe Sites
Medical sites on the low carb and paleo links list are those sites with contributions from medical doctors. These authors have actual patient – centered experience in a clinical setting. In other words, if they haven’t said “turn your head and cough” in a professional setting, they aren’t included (what someone does for fun in the privacy of their own home does not matter in this case).
Researchers on the low carb and paleo links list are those sites that generally provide scientific information about the low carb and paleo way of eating, and are authored by people with a degree in a human health related field (physiology, biology, nutrition, etc.)
Researchers from Other Fields sites on the low carb and paleo links list are sites providing scientific information, and are authored by people with degrees not related to human health.
Advocates on the low carb and paleo links list are those sites run by enthusiasts who have contributed through the years to the understanding of issues surrounding human nutrition. This category includes the more commercialized personal sites that have large readership.
Personal Sites appearing on the low carb and paleo links list are often the most enjoyable. These sites are from a wide variety of contributors, some with advanced degrees, giving their personal story, recipes and advice. Others are the inspiring stories of personal triumph.
Recipe Sites … a low carb and paleo links list would not be complete without a section devoted to the low carb or paleo recipe. These sites are primarily about recipes, although many of them also have the personal touch of a personal site.
These categories are not really listed in order of importance. They are categorized to separate out the wheat from the chaff. Taking medical advice from someone who has never said “turn your head and cough” is probably not wise. And I wouldn’t necessarily trust my doctor for a great recipe (although Dr. Mary Dan Eades would definitely be an exception!) There is some cross over and duplication.
Hey, I’m in the Wrong Category!
Let me know if your site is listed in the low carb and paleo links list, and you think you are in the wrong category.
I Want to be Included!
I welcome additions to the low carb and paleo sites list. There is no requirement to include a link back to my site, although I would apprecaite it. To be included, your site has to be primarily about low carb or paleo, and be active; I intend prune links that are not active every few months, unless they have a lot of important content on the site already. Just let me know in the comments, or by email, and I’ll consider you for inclusion.
