By Chris Randall After a slow, easy run on a beautiful Sunday morning, I decided that the only thing missing was a fat stack of pancakes. Yes, pancakes. Those succulent, golden, sweet, heavenly cakes spawned from the pan. I couldn’t remember the last time I had pancakes, and I was feeling adventurous so I figured, “Hey, what the heck?” They weren’t anything too special, just your basic flapjacks: some flour, some sugar, sweetened coconut milk, baking soda, and a couple mashed bananas. And of course I topped them off with some good old-fashioned maple syrup and accompanied them with a tall, cold glass of orange juice. Solid. As I was digging into my stack, a thought crossed my mind that made me laugh: the notion of some pretentious, snooty health… Read more »

By Julia Gumm While fall doesn’t officially begin here in the northern hemisphere until tomorrow, it’s influence has been laying claim to the landscape for some weeks now. The emerald green of summer has yellowed like old newspaper, the evening air is laced with frost, and the hickory nuts are being squirreled away as fast as they can fall. Night is winning it’s tug of war with the long summer days, the winter constellations are rolling back into the sky and everyone in America is walking around nursing a hot pumpkin spice flavored latte as if it were precious mother’s milk. Good Lord! This pumpkin spice explosion is a bit much, no? Pumpkin cider, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin beer, pumpkin custard, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin hot chocolate, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin… Read more »
By Julia Gumm It’s hard to know just what to do When seeking perfect health. Should you buy Mercola’s tanning bed? Do you have that kind of wealth? Should you guzzle fresh pressed green juice? Till you pass a kidney stone? Must you detox your filthy liver? Swear off cakes and pies and scones? Maybe the key is Atkins (If you’ve enough thyroid to spare.) Or actually, how ‘bout South Beach? It’s a tad bit easier to bear. Should you train to run a marathon? Will you swear off meat and dairy? Will you go to bed self-satisfied E’en though your poops are looking scary? “None for me, I’ve got my smoothie!” You’ll cry out during holiday feasts As your so-called “loved ones” tempt you With grandma’s baked macaroni… Read more »
Eat for Heat is now available as a paperback through Amazon HERE. Small, skinny little fella, it’s a quick read and continues to be of huge game-changing importance for those who dare to make the subtle changes it discusses. Perhaps the best and most accurate review came just last week… “Weird that eating like this actually works… I don’t get it. I really don’t. Half the things I’ve learned about health and nutrition are incorrect. Especially when you are in a low metabolic state, which seems to be anyone who has any sort of chronic condition. I came across Matt Stone, actually from a Danny Roddy blog. I had been “Peating” for about 4 or 5 months, and actually felt worse than I ever have in my adult life. I have… Read more »

By: Joni Cox from Homegrown Health Two years ago, if you would have told me I may have a brain tumor, I would have likely believed you. The pain from the frequent migraines was so intense, that I would often have no choice but to surrender to them, hoping that my head wouldn’t explode. I usually have a high pain tolerance and could work through any migraine, as long as it was only on one side of my head. But when both sides were affected and throbbing, my ability to cope, resist or do anything other than sob, was completely gone. “Why is this happening to me?” was the only question I could ask during the “off” times. According to all the voices in natural health, I was doing everything… Read more »
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Ahoy! I’m writing to give you all a heads up that Matt’s got a couple of books in Primal Toad’s Wellness Bundle. If you haven’t picked up Eat for Heat or 12 Paleo Myths, here’s your chance to, alongside 31 other eBooks, at a heavily discounted price. Among the bundle are Frank Forencich’s Exuberant Animal, and a whole panoply of recipe and cooking guides, including a coconut oil cookbook. You know how much we love coconut oil ’round here. Deal ends next week, so check it out here!
Before we jump into a very fascinating topic, I must first mention that my latest bestselling book (#1 of 22,000 listings in Nutrition on Amazon), Eat for Heat: The Metabolic Approach to Food and Drink, is currently available at a heavily-discounted price. If you haven’t had the chance to read it yet, now’s the time to get it – and tell your friends about it too. Buying it, pressing the “like” button, and writing a short 1-paragraph review while you’re there would be a big help in moving it ahead of all the constipation-inducing, sex-drive killing, and otherwise metabolically-suppressive diet books currently ranked above it. If you’ve already purchased it, consider giving a 99-cent “donation” by scooping it up on Amazon, or buying it for a friend or family member perhaps. … Read more »
By Matt Stone On Friday I received the following review on my new book Eat for Heat… “It alarms me that the author of this book has no credentials at all. He seems to just search out other peoples research and then puts it together into what he believes to be true. Perhaps if he were to somehow get a study funded into his nutritional beliefs it might be better then just printing a book which anyone can do.” Grammar and punctuation errors aside, this brings up an extremely important erroneous belief that many people in the modern world simply cannot think their way beyond. Credentials are almost completely meaningless. Anyone with mediocre intellect, some spare time, and some money (or student loans) can obtain credentials. Credentials are mostly obtained… Read more »
Tune in at 3pm eastern time to hear my interview with Joni Cox of Homegrown Health on Natural News Radio. If you don’t tune in on time, you can find it in the Homegrown Health archives and listen to it later. On the show we talk about some of the basic ideas in Eat for Heat, and discuss Joni’s 2-day elimination of migraines that had plagued her for 2 years – all by stopping her ridiculous habit of forcing down water beyond physiological thirst in an attempt to be healthy. You know, that Water Cure crap by Dr. Batmandumphuck. Enjoy. And I apologize in advance for not rapping at the end, and beat-boxing per Joni’s request. I’m a wuss. It’s true.
“Your blood is like a soup that needs to be seasoned just right. [Eat for Heat] helps to teach you what to watch for so you don’t screw up your “soup” by drinking too many fluids (which waters it down) or not seasoning it enough (with things like carbohydrates and salt).” ~Dr. Garrett Smith; Review of Eat for Heat: The Metabolic Approach to Food and Drink We often hear that our bodies are “mostly water.” The rough approximation is that an average person with a relatively average amount of body fat will be composed of about 60% water. Over the course of the lifespan, the percentage of body water gradually decreases. This is often used as justification of drinking lots and lots of pure water as if doing so will… Read more »
It’s been 6 days since Eat for Heat debuted, and the response has been overwhelming. It has already moved up into the top 20 Nutrition eBooks list on Kindle (got as high as #15, currentlY HERE as it quickly catches up to the likes of Joel Fuhrman, T. Colin Campbell, Mark Sisson, Gary Taubes, and others encouraging unecessary restriction and paranoia. This sudden burst of action was highly unexpected, but these kinds of opportunities don’t come along very often. Please take a moment to push the like button on the Eat for Heat Amazon page HERE, and if you purchase it please take just a short moment to review it. Even one simple sentence, like “Matt Stone is a total douchebag” is great. You don’t have to get “Jibby” with it and write a literary masterpiece, or… Read more »
