Paleo Diet

The problem with naming a diet low carb

There are a lot of variations out there when it comes to calling something “low carb”, or “high protein”. A good example is the paleo diet. Yes it is low carb to a certain degree, but that is mainly because of the omission of processed foods and white foods. Is it low carb if one [...]

Chemists Design Method to Figure Out What Your Meat Ate

Scientists can now determine what our food ate. I don’t know if this is for real, or to laugh. But I suppose when producers are untruthful about their products, this sort of verification would be welcome. As someone who is determine to eat only pastured beef to follow a true paleo diet, testing could be [...]

Agriculture: The Worst Mistake In The History Of The Human Race …

Is it too late to turn back the clock? Do we really want to or need to? As much as I love the paleo diet I don’t think we need to go backwards in our human journey. I believe we can combine the best of both worlds, now that we understand that major health problems [...]

Paleo Sounds Great, But Why No Grains?

Love this article by Robb Wolf. He answers the question of why grains are not part of the paleo diet. So many people believe that grains are an essential part of a healthy diet when in fact they cause more problems than is realized. Robb’s piece does a great job of explaining why. Today’s guest [...]

Paleo Diet Boosts Digestive Health

Another reason to eat a paleo diet. I have noticed personally that when I eat a non paleo meal my digestion is messed up for a day or so. This is probably due to toxins (too processed) or too much grain, or both.ᅠ These people may have avoided diverticulitis if they followed the principles of [...]

Paleolithic diet much better for diabetics than conventional …

One more point goes to the paleo diet. No one who follows a paleo diet is surprised that diabetics would do better on a paleo diet than the standard diabetic diet. However I think that some of the results go deeper than just the number of calories. The article asserts that those following a paleo [...]

Alternative lyrics to Guns N Roses “Paradse City”. “Take me down to the paleo city,ᅠWhere the grass is green And the cows are a plenty….” Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution, is a former research biochemist and one of the world’s leading experts in Paleolithic nutrition. Wolf has transformed the lives of tens of [...]

Paleo-Weight Loss

Not a bad synopsis of the paleo diet. But there are some points that are incorrect. First, the assertion that saturated fats are to be avoided is just plain wrong. Saturated animal fats were the main source of fat for our paleo ancestors and was an important part of the diet. The bromide that saturated [...]

Neanderthal palaeodiet was dependant on habitat

An interesting article about what our paleo ancestors ate depended upon where they lived and how that affected the wear patterns on their teeth. Those living around the Mediterranean had a more varied diet which included nuts and roots. Those living in more mountainous areas were much more carnivorous. Based on comparisons with modern hunter-gatherer [...]

Inuits - the original Paleo Diet

This is a great example of what can happen when an indigenous people, in this case the Inuit, go from eating their traditional diet (Paleo diet) of seal and whale to the basic American diet of high carbs, poor quality protein and poor oils. The traditional Inuit diet is the lowest in carbohydrates and the [...]
