Paleo Diet: Weight Loss Doesn’t Always Equal Healthy

I hear it all the time, “Lose weight, and get healthy!”. Hell, I’ve said it myself multiple times…but, weight loss doesn’t always equal healthy, even though the mainstream would have us believe that it does. Today, I’m quoting from an article by an unlikely candidate for use on a Paleo based website, because the author [...]

Paleo Diet: Is That Loose Skin, or Just Body-Fat?

This subject is actually a large concern for a lot of people. It has concerned me in the past because…..well…I’m vain, and I didn’t relish the idea of having pieces of loose skin on my body, as I lost weight. I was never really more than about 20lbs overweight, even at my heaviest, but after [...]

Paleo Diet: Make A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep

I see it every year at this time. I pull into the gym parking lot, and find it full to the brim with vehicles. Some I recognize, but the majority I do not. If it were any other day of the year, I would assume that some big event was taking place, but not this [...]

Fat DOESN’T Make You Fat

“Fat makes you fat”.  Sounds plausible, doesn’t it? It was the mantra of the low-fat diet craze which first found favour in the 1980s, and blazed a trail through the diet industry for much of the 1990s.  Even now, the “logic” of this statement is firmly embedded in the consciousness of many.  Entire countries have [...]

The Paleo Diet: Insulin and ASP

Everyone who lives a Paleo, Primal, or low-carb lifestyle knows a little about the hormone insulin. Insulin is the storage hormone that is released within our bodies, in response to the carbohydrates that we eat. If there is allowed to be even a quarter of a teaspoon too much glucose in our blood, we face [...]

The Paleo Diet & Celiac Disease

Can the Paleo diet help resolve Celiac disease and gluten intolerance?  Celiac disease is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed diseases in the United States today. It can be completely asymptomatic (without symptoms) in some people, and manifest major, obvious symptoms in others. The gluten protein found mainly in wheat, barley and rye food products [...]

The Paleo Diet Vs. Weight Watchers

“Dieters In Weight Watchers Study Drop Up To 15 Pounds a Year” was the title of an article dated September 7th 2011, published on Health.com, and written by Amanda MacMillan. The article was written in response to an article in the Lancet, that apparently followed 772 men and women in The UK, Germany, and Australia, [...]

Paleo Diet News Review: Waist Disposal

Dubbed as a “no-nonsense, science-based approach to fat-loss“, this book by Dr. John Briffa - a practising UK-based doctor and health journalist - serves as a great introduction to the paleo diet and lifestyle for those whose main goal is fat-loss.  However, it’s substantial enough (mainly due to its plethora of excellent scientific and medical references) to [...]

Is The Paleo Diet Just Low-Carb in Disguise?

After the recent Ancestral Health Symposium, there was a lot of talk in the blogosphere about how a large percentage of the presenters were from the low-carb community. Tom Naughton, Dr. Eades, and Gary Taubes to name but a few. But does that mean that the Paleo diet is just another low-carb diet in disguise, [...]

Losing Weight on the Paleo Diet

Recently, I re-watched a BBC programme I had recorded when it was first broadcast: 10 Things You Need To Know About Losing Weight.  In it, medical journalist Michael Mosley investigated the latest scientific breakthroughs in slimming, uncovering ten ways alleged to accelerate the shedding of unwanted body fat.  I thought it’d be fun to revisit [...]
