+Matt Broihier  - I'm in Chicago now! I've been sick for the past 11 days though (started in Maui). Boogie boarding rocked my world.

Whenever anyone leaves our Meetup group (around 620 members now), I get an email.  It seems like about 95% of the time, people don't leave reasons for why they are leaving the group.  But occasionally, people do.  This one caught my eye today.  I'm familiar with a lot of people going from vegan or vegetarian to paleo, but have never heard of the reverse.

But I guess anything is possible.  Below is clipped from the email.

+Alaena Haber 's take on some of the Paleo and Gluten-free options here in Chicago.

If you haven't checked out her web site, please do.  She's got a growing list of Paleo and AIP friendly recipes, which just jump off the page.

Thanks +Beck Anstee for providing a Paleo perspective for +Ellen Jean Hirst 's recent article on snacking.  I missed this earlier, but just saw the Red Eye version today as I was hopping on the train.
Kelly Anne Celli, a Lincoln Park Zoo employee who moonlights as a real estate agent, compares herself to a giraffe because she's always munching, slowly but surely. On something.

Here's one of the Chicago based Paleo businesses that is poised for huge success.  I'll email the group about an opportunity that has come up with this business.

Coming early this week.

Hi all, I'm looking for a PCP with knowledge of Paleo. I've checked both Paleo Physicians Network and Primal Docs and only find Chiropractors or people who do not accept my insurance. I'm wondering if any of you have a doctor that you recommend who may not be listed. I live in the southwest suburbs but am willing to travel into the city if I need to.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Ok, I'm going to try one more source. I have heard so many good things about Dr. Fred Shultz in Wheaton- but I don't think he takes any insurance, is super expensive, and has a crazy long waiting list. Anyways, this page was from his website of other docs he recommends. No idea where they all are, if they are in your network, and it might be tedious to figure it out- but here's the list- http://www.drfredschultz.com/resourcelinks.html good luck!

I know bulletproof coffee is a fav among paleo people. I've done egg and coconut oil and GF butter for years now. I just added 1TBL MCT oil alone and with Coconut oil.  How is MCT anything more than a laxative? It also is super greasy - doesn't emulsify well.  Give me some of your own opinions, not ones you've read.  Looking for insight from experience. Thanks peeps.

I have tried all 3. Coconut oil, MCT and C8MCT. There is a great deal of difference for me. All 3 give me energy. Coconut oil fills me up. MCT is a kick in the pants. C8MCT is like in limitless.

Derrick Rose is mentioned below.  He's not exactly Paleo, but he did cut way back on sugar, trying to speed his healing process.

+Robb Wolf is quoted, said something I found a little odd.  From the article -- "Around 2009, Wolf said Google search volume for the Paleo diet was doubling every 18 months. Now, it's doubling every three or four weeks – but it's still a fringe lifestyle."  When I look at Google Trends, I don't see this kind of growth around Paleo search terms.
This week, CBSSports.com's three-part series on nutrition in the NBA will explore players from Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose to Blake Griffin and Ray Allen who've adopted similar nutritional approaches to achieve a variety of goals. In Part II, players discuss their experience with the caveman diet.

+Xavier Anthony Apostol  - I think it's here to stay because 1) Community 2) Focus on pasture-raised local food 3) Other lifestyle factors that most others seem to forget 4) Authors like +Denise Minger  who will save Paleo from turning into a religion. I'll throw in +Chris Kresser  too as his book seems to be semi similar to +Paul Jaminet
