Keith Norris Paleo Guy – Does Paleo Work for Athletes? – Can I Get Strong on Paleo
In a Paleo discussion, Keith Norris teams up with Skyler Tanner and Mark Alexander to give their view of the modern paleo movement. What’s it mean to them, and more importantly, what’s it mean to you? How can you use parts of the Paleo philosophy to enhance your training… and your life?
“I am, in diet—like most things—non-dogmatic and even a little off the rails. When I define Paleo, I just say it’s a diet that excludes dairy, legumes, grains and processed foods of any sort. This would be the general definition.” ~Keith Norris

Keith Norris, the Paleo Guy, considers himself a life-long physical culturalist — part of the paleo movement before there was one. He’s joined in this discussion with his co-workers at Efficient Exercise, Skyler Tanner and Mark Alexander. You’ll find Keith’s columns at his website, ancestralmomentum.com, and you can catch up with the whole team in Austin at Efficient Exercise.
Keith Norris –
Yeah, I’m a little biased, but I thought this was a fantastic “behind the scenes” glimpse at the types of discussions we have around the Efficient Exercise “campfire. This session is probably better titled, though “Paleo and Performance”.
Corben Thomas –
It is always fun to hear Keith, Skyler, and Mark discuss anything. This time they discuss Paleo and Performance. The discussion starts off with the “30,000 ft” view of Paleo, but quickly decends down the rabbit hole with very interesting viewpoints on performance versus health. This is a can’t miss discussion. I look forward to more talks from this trio of Paleo movers and shakers.
