The Great Steak Game: Support Paleo!

Over the last few months, there have been many Facebooks events during which attendees change their profile pictures and statuses to something in order to raise awareness for a cause. For example, people changed their profile pictures to cartoon characters for child abuse awareness, and girls posed their bra colors as their statuses for breast cancer awareness. These events went viral-- people all over the internet updated their avatars, statuses, profile pictures, tumblrs, twitters, and blogs as means of support. Some of these even attracted media attention!

The Paleo Community faces a lot of discrimination from the followers of Conventional Wisdom-- we're wrong for not eating grains, we're cruel for eating animals, and the scientific proof that the Paleo lifestyle works is thrown out as another "fad diet." People think we're just "those crazy cavemen" who enjoy depriving themselves of fake, sugary crap. Yeah, well, "those crazy cavemen" have also reversed their diseases and changed their lives for the much, much healthier.


The Paleo Community also stands together. Since I've started networking with its members, I've found the most supportive and welcoming people who just want to spread their messages of healthy, disease-free living. Nothing has made me happier than finding this group of people that are as passionate about health and evolutionary nutrition as I am.

The Paleo enthusiasts on Facebook have thus started up the Great Steak Game as a way to show support for the Paleo/Primal movement.... and meat-eating in general. How does one play this game? Easy!

Step 1: Change your profile picture to the steak in the picture in honor of your love of steak, especially if you're Paleo/Primal.


Step 2: Change your status to how you eat your steak, and finish it with where/when/what you do when you eat it. Examples below:

FIRST HALF EXAMPLES:
1. I eat it RAW
2. I eat it PINK
3. I eat it BLOODY
4. I eat it WELL DONE

SECOND HALF EXAMPLES:
1. On the table
2. On the grill
3. With veggies on the side
4. And invite my friends to join

So an example would be, "I eat it medium and wrapped in bacon!"

Within the first few hours, our Great Steak Game spread all over Facebook, Twitter, and other Paleo blogs. Check out this screen-cap of Paleo members' profile pictures!


So what if you don't have a Facebook or other social networking site? That's okay. Just go cook and eat some steak and talk to your friends about this lifestyle.... or just about your love of steak/meat in general.

While this may or may not get big enough to attract media attention, it's at least a start. With best-selling books, Nightline segments, and countless Paleo-lifestyle blogs, it's just a matter of time before Paleo overtakes the SAD and eliminates all of the Neolithic diseases and health problems!
