Lew Rockwell, Tom Woods, Butler Shaffer – Cavemen?

Yep – all three of them have had great success on the primal (or ancestral health) diet, better known as a lifestyle. The primal lifestyle (a) rejects the government’s socialist-corporate-influenced food pyramid (b) questions the conventional wisdom of the Big Food-Medical Establishment oligarchy, (c) and purges the Standard American Diet (gluten, sugars, fructose, industrial oils, processed foods, junk foods, junk beverages, etc.), while it teaches folks how to get back to eating real food and real fat in celebration of seeking independence from the establishment and embracing personal sovereignty and freedom of choice.

Lew Rockwell makes some brief statements about his primal life, here, in his podcast with me, “Government Hates Good Health.” See Bob Wenzel’s amazing photos of the before and after Lew. Butler Shaffer, the last time I talked to him, had lost 30 pounds in a few short months after going primal, after being held “captive” to my real-food-and-real-health lectures in his own home – over a bottle of Anarchy wine, of course. Butler’s two daughters – Bretigne also writes for LewRockwell.com – have also jumped on board. Tom Woods has become a spokesperson for the primal lifestyle, as you can see in his latest video (below).

All three of my anarcho-friends have relied heavily on the work of Mark Sisson, an early advocate of the primal or ancestral health lifestyle. Sisson, on his website and in his numerous books, has served to educate people (often for free) and inspire them by offering up alternatives – choices! – for living one’s life and making choices about lifestyle and food. Remarkably, one self-styled Austrian Economist recently described Sisson’s voluntary, self-education paradigm as “Sisson totalitarianism.” Apparently, the definition of “totalitarianism” must confuse this particular individual. It is unfortunate that Big Agra’s self-esteem lacking, “libertarian” bootlickers deem it necessary to pour scorn upon those folks who voluntarily choose to divorce themselves from the coercive and toxic lifestyle authoritarians while embracing new knowledge and taking control of their own health.

I write about this often for several reasons, and one of them is that in spite of the fact that I receive small bits of criticism from the same group of libertarianoids, I receive, on a weekly basis, between 6-10 emails from LewRockwell.com or KarenDeCoster.com readers who have turned their lives around by learning how to rethink their roles as free individuals in society and thus take control of their own destiny. Always, these letters are the most meaningful emails I can ever get from readers.

    Hey Karen, Please add this email to your list of people who are working to turn their lives around!  Thank you so much for the inspiration that you continue to provide me to question, think, and walk my own path!  My path, incidentally, wholeheartedly embraces Mark Sisson and all of his good works as well.  Wish I had found you both years ago!  Thank you!  Ann

    This is great news! Three people I am glad to hear will be with us a lot longer thanks to the primal lifestyle. I’ve lost 30 lbs without losing a bit of strength. I haven’t had a hunger pang and haven’t been sick – not even the sniffles – in over a year. Thanks to Karen for introducing me to Sisson and his wonderful work.

    I am a bit portly. I love pizza. I love bruatworst and bacon. I guess it is not so healthy. But I like to get ground hamburger right from the cow in meat department too. I think many food is kind of trap though- like a propaganda to eat factory foods. But I never buy a TV – I do use a TV for my Laptop – but never watch channel. I like drink many cups of green tea – it is so healthful. Maybe I can send you some green teas!? I like pizza – are you thinking I am bad for going to eat at pizza place… I can’t stop I love cheese so much… place advise me on pizza. Thanks
