Millet: A Gluten-Free Grain You Should Avoid

Vegetarian and Vegan Diets: Nutritional Disasters Part 1

Vegetarian and Vegan Diets: Nutritional Disasters Part 1

Over the years since the publication of my first book, I have been asked time and again if there is a vegetarian version of The Paleo Diet. I’ve got to say emphatically – No! Vegetarian diets are a bit of a moving target because they come in at least three major versions. We all know […]

Vitamin and Nutritional Supplements Increase Chronic Disease Morbidity (Incidence) and Mortality (Death)

Vitamin and Nutritional Supplements Increase Chronic Disease Morbidity (Incidence) and Mortality (Death)

The Nutritional Supplement Mentality When you start eating Paleo, you simply won’t require vitamin or mineral supplements.13 In fact, except for fish oil and vitamin D, if you choose to take antioxidant and/or B vitamins, you will increase your risk of cancer, heart disease and dying from all causes combined. One of my first jobs […]

Are Potatoes Paleo?

Are Potatoes Paleo?

I have noticed in the last few years that many Paleo Dieters believe that potatoes can be regularly consumed without any adverse health effects. Part of this misinformation seems to stem from writers of blogs and others who are unfamiliar with the scientific literature regarding potatoes. So should we be eating potatoes or not?

Flour Fortification with Folic Acid: Good Idea or Bad Idea

Flour Fortification with Folic Acid: Good Idea or Bad Idea

Folic Acid Supplementation and Fortification In 1947 scientists at Lederle Labs synthesized a compound called folic acid that had never previously existed on our planet. No human prior to 1947 had ever ingested this artificial substance. Exactly 51 years later in 1998, The Food and Drug Agency (FDA) mandatorily legislated that the entire U.S population […]

Gluten and The Brain

Gluten and The Brain

With the plethora of benefits supported by scientific evidence,1 Gluten-free diets have been gaining in popularity in recent years.2 Studies range from gastrointestinal symptom improvement,3 to possible correlations with autism,4 and diabetes.5 However, there may not be a more fascinating area of gluten study than how the protein composite can be related to cognitive function.6 […]

Bacon: Is There Anything Left to Discuss?

Bacon: Is There Anything Left to Discuss?

Over the past few years, craze over bacon has surged in the Paleo community, but is it Paleo or isn’t it? It seems like just about every bacon issue under the sun has been argued, discussed and disputed on Paleo blogs, websites and cookbooks. I have little to add to these specific discussions because as […]

Habitual Marijuana Use and the Paleo Diet: What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been

Last month I had the pleasure to lecture on the Paleo Diet in Sydney, Australia at the BioCeuticals Research Symposium. After my presentation a couple who appeared to be in their late 40s to early 50s approached the podium. The man and his wife told me they had adopted the Paleo Diet a few years […]

Sea Salt: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Sea Salt: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

One of the most gratifying rewards of having written The Paleo Diet in 2002 and having been involved in the Paleo movement from its very beginnings is that I receive numerous queries about various nutritional aspects of this lifelong way of eating. Clearly, I nor anyone else, have an inside track to all dietary questions […]

Beans and Legumes: Are they Paleo?

Beans and Legumes: Are they Paleo?

I was delighted to learn that Dr. Oz was going to again feature The Paleo Diet with Nell Stephenson and was happy about most of what I saw except for Chris Kresser, expounding upon the health virtues of a food group, beans and legumes, that definitely are not Paleo.

As we spring into a new season, there has been renewed interest in how one diet stacks up to the next. In this presentation which I made at the Functional Medicine Conference in San Francisco in Spring of 2014, I contrasted the Paleo Diet to the Mediterranean Diet and vegan and vegetarian diets.

Why Is My Jaw Shrinking? The Dental Problems of a Western Diet

Why Is My Jaw Shrinking? The Dental Problems of a Western Diet

For 200,000 years before grain agriculture, the human jaw and the size of teeth were basically static. However, for the last 10,000 years or so, which coincides with the advent of agricultural farming, the width, length, and shape of the human jaw have been decreasing and changing slowly while the size of the teeth have […]

Nutrient Deficiencies and Supplementation

Nutrient Deficiencies and Supplementation

I was recently asked by a Natuopathic Doctor (ND) whether supplements should be prescribed to help patients achieve certain therapeutic effects that may not be achieved through diet alone. In regards to vitamin, mineral and nutritional supplements I believe that most people following a traditional western junk food diet or a vegetarian/vegan diet will ultimately […]

5 Paleo Snacks for the Kids in All of Us

5 Paleo Snacks for the Kids in All of Us

It’s funny how we tend to automatically associate kids’ snacks with processed, high in sugar and salt, low in nutrient density options with cartoon characters’ images on the packaging. As if by magic, simply seeing a funny clown or superhero on a box of what is essentially junk food, somehow makes it a good option […]

Keep Your Weekend Warrior in Check

Keep Your Weekend Warrior in Check

Does your life get in the way of your Paleo diet and how often you exercise? Our hunter-gather ancestors didn’t have near the demanding schedules we do today. Their lives revolved around sourcing food and attending to basic survival needs. They engaged in strenuous physical activity but recovered with ample rest on a daily basis. […]

Are You Eating Enough Carbs For Optimal Recovery?

While a low-carb Paleo diet is phenomenal for supporting weight loss and improving health if you are overweight, out of shape, or obese, not everyone is trying to lose weight.

US Government Poised to Drop Cholesterol Warnings?

US Government Poised to Drop Cholesterol Warnings?

  The notion that dietary cholesterol, (cholesterol that occurs naturally within food), promotes cardiovascular disease has been a central tenet of the US government’s dietary recommendations for the past 50 years, including their Food Guide Pyramid (retired in 2005), MyPyramid (retired in 2011), and their current MyPlate configuration. Soon, however, the government may finally change […]

The Huffington Post, Meredith Melnick (@MeredithCM), the Health Director for the publication, recently informed the readers of a paper published in December 2014’s issue of The Quarterly Review of Biology, a review paper examining the evolution of human diet.1 “Paleoanthropologists are pretty amused by the faddish Paleo Diet,” said Melnick. “And now a review of […]
