Paleo Diet: Is There A Negative To Coconut Oil?

Everywhere you look, there are people shouting the praises of Coconut oil. It’s pretty much a Paleo Diet staple, and is known to be very healthy. Coconut oil is processed directly into ketone bodies, which means that it isn’t processed in the same way as other fats. Because of this, it is very useful as [...]

Does Pat Summitt Need Paleo?

Does Pat Summitt Need Paleo?

, Pat Summitt I know, it’s a rhetorical question…..everyone needs Paleo. Considering that it was the natural human diet for around 2.5 millions years of evolution, there’s not much of an argument against the Paleo diet being correct and healthy for everyone on the planet. In this specific case though, a ketogenic version of the [...]

Is the Paleo Diet Conservative?

This is not a question that I had ever considered asking myself before, “is the Paleo diet conservative?” I figured it was an eating plan, a lifestyle, basically a way of living to improve one’s health that was entirely unconnected to politics. But there is one conservative writer who seems to think it is. Jack [...]

Low-carb diet used to treat Alzheimer's

This is potentially good news. Dr. Richard Isaacson, aᅠneurologist at the University of Miami, is putting his Alzheimer’s patients on a low carb diet. I am willing to bet that a paleo diet would be even more effective. If he is allowing toxic foods like Splenda and Nutrasweet, then he may as well not bother. [...]

More on Paleo Diet and Alzheimer’s

I’ve just been reading a good old British national treasure: the Radio Times, which got me thinking about the paleo diet and Alzheimer’s.  In it, there’s an interview with another national treasure – Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the wonderful Discworld fantasy novels. It’s a point-of-view piece, in which Sir Terry outlines a typical morning: Then into [...]

The Paleo Diet and Therapeutic Fats

Being a former low-fat foodie, I must confess I still get a kick out of the amount of fat I can now eat on the paleo diet, safe in the knowledge that it’s doing my body a lot of good, not harm.  So I thought it might be fun to do a quick round-up of my favourite [...]

Paleo Diet News: Omega-3 Hope for Alzheimer’s Disease?

I was interested to read the results of this recent study, which looked in detail at how a long-term omega-3 fatty acid supplementation regime affected the brains of rats and mice.  Whilst the positive effects of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation on “impaired cognitive function” is well documented, there have been few reliable long-term human studies of [...]

Paleo Diet: Autism and Diabetes

Is it possible that autism and diabetes have a connection? In researching the Paleo diet I’ve come across some interesting connections between diseases and conditions that would not appear to be related in any way. Autism and diabetes are one such pair. We know that the Paleo diet can reverse and possibly cure diabetes, but [...]

Cooling Inflammation with the Paleo Diet

Today, we’re going to look at the crucial role that the paleo diet plays in reducing and controlling inflammation in the body. Inflammation is the activation of the immune system in response to infection, irritation, or injury.  It occurs when blood cells, antibodies and other immune system components are directed to the site that’s under stress [...]
