Not sure if there is already a thread somewhere on this forum but would highly recommend Chris Kresser. He's a naturopath that specializes in gut/digestion issues, hormonal issues, thyroid, adrenal and endocrine issues which are more common then people think when they go on a paleo diet or when something goes wrong. He advocates a paleo template or paleoish diet, which includes some starches such as sweet potatoes. He's known as a health detective and had to fix his own complex health issues when he was traveling abroad. His podcasts and articles which are all free are excellent and he is one of the most intelligent and well researched health professionals in the paleosphere. Im also thinking of either going to visit him or get some help from him via skype or phone consulting. His website is at: www.chriskresser.com
I'd also like to suggest Matt Stone of 180 Degree Health. I just came across his website but like Chris Kresser, he tackles a lot of issues not commonly discussed in the paleo community, and is very well research and intelligent as well. Both Matt Stone and Chris Kresser are going to be in the Paleo Summit happening later on this month as well.
The dude has a track record of making something awesome, building it up to where it's turning a ridiculous amount of profit, and then moving on and doing it all over again. Would love to hear his insights and philosophy.
Also, as always, would love to hear Alison Armstrong talk on the subject of Masculine/Feminine Polarity.
Is the21convention dead or in its final stages? Thought 2013 was the last year for convention events taking place? If not, that's great news. I am curious about the direction the convention is going to take this year and beyond. It's definitely matured immensely from it's early years with inclusion of cheesy PUA speakers on how to get laid lol
Always happy to see unsolicited suggestions for speakers. Please keep em comin. No time limit here. (Well, other than actual events).
Re forkit : no, The21C is not dead. There is a post on the homepage about taking a year off from the events though. I have every intention of hosting more event(s) in 2014, so unless I die in a car crash or something, they are coming.
When, where, and with what speakers is yet to be determined, and honestly, I do my best to keep those thoughts to the back of my mind. Instead I am focusing on increasing the robustness, anti-fragility, and long-term health of the company. This is why if you keep tabs on the Youtube channel(s), you see videos being posted like crazy. Literally every 12-24 hours, like clockwork.
This is being done both for general business purposes, as well as a measure against any looming economic storms that may have to be weathered for some unknown period of time.
