Portland Paleo is a meetup group for those of us interested in all of the various aspects of the Paleo/Primal/Caveman diet and lifestyles. Whether you've been eating and exercising like a caveman for a while, you're a recent convert enjoying some new found health and energy, or you're simply curious based on the latest news piece touting the benefits of a little prehistoric thinking, we welcome you with open arms (both probably holding steaks). Portland Paleo will foster discussions and meet ups focused on shunning the misguided mainstream dietary and health advice instead looking to the practices that made our species the top level predator it is today with increasing scientific support. Some people turn to this lifestyle as a way to lose weight, some are simply looking to obtain optimum fitness results, while some seek the paleo lifestyle to treat or fix any number of health issues such as autoimmune diseases, cognitive malfunctions, nutrient imbalances, or even just plain old acne and lethargy. We'll foster not only a learning environment for those of us still seeking answers but also ways to simply connect with other forward thinking and increasingly more healthy individuals!
