a paleo thing

Thursday, May 22, 2014

DR LOREN CORDAIN FROM COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY IN 1999 PUBLISHED AN INCREDIBLE ARTICLE CALLED: CEREAL GRAINS: HUMANITY'S DOUBLE EDGED SWORD. I JUST STUMBLED ACROSS THIS ARTICLE WHILE RESEARCHING. FROM THE GET-GO, AS A CLINICIAN, I WAS TOTALLY PULLED IN. HE MAKES A VERY COMPELLING ARGUMENT FOR ASCRIBING ALOT OF HUMANITY'S HEALTH WOES TO THE ADDITION AND INCREDIBLE ADVANCE OF GRAINS IN OUR DIET OVER THE LAST 3000 YEARS. I HAVE VERY CRITICALLY REVIEWED HIS WORK-----AND WHOLEHEARTEDLY ENDORSE HIS FINDINGS.

HE CALLS IT THE "PALEO DIET" BECAUSE IT ESPOUSES EATING LIKE OUR PALEOLITHIC ANCESTORS DID---BEFORE THE DOMESTICATION OF GRAIN. THE WAY HUMANITY ATE FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS. THE WAY WE WERE DESIGNED TO LIVE. I'VE STARTED MY OWN 6 MONTH PALEO CHALLENGE. THE RESULTS SO FAR HAVE BEEN INSPIRING AND BREATH-TAKING!

TWO SUGGESTED BOOKS FOR READING:

THE PALEO DIET BY DR LOREN CORDAIN
THE PALEO SOLUTION BY ROBB WOLF (DR CORDAINS GRAD STUDENT)
